Alternative Peru - Responsible Travel Experiences

Alternative Peru’s Cusco Tours

Our Cusco tours want to take visitors off the beaten path and show them Cusco and surroundings beyond the main touristic attractions. Whether it is a visit to one of the local urban communities of Cusco or an indigenous rural community outside of Cusco, it will give you a different, authentic experience and will make you feel faraway from the touristy vibes of Cusco and the Sacred Valley. Our Cusco tours are responsible intercultural experiences where you’ll learn more about the locals’ daily life and their traditions, meet some truly amazing people and witness a local social project that is making a difference or initiatives to keep their indigenous culture alive!

Of course we can also organize a more classical tour for you to the highlights of the Sacred Valley or Cusco but always with a local, off-the-beaten-path twist. If you have a specific request for a customized tour, let us know! We’d be happy to organize your stay in Cusco!
