SAS Travel Peru

SAS Travel Peru

Is it for me?

This tour can be done independently but the information provided by the guide and the altitude can make it difficult. For admirers of culture and architecture and mysteries of past and present. Even if you don`t do the tour never leave Cusco without being overwhelmed by the enormity of the constructional task of Saqsayhuaman and you will be amazed that less than 20% still remains today. People could use the stones for their own structures until 1900.
