Cusco Day Tours & Activities in Peru

Looking for unique and immersive experiences in Cusco? Our Cusco day tours are designed to showcase the local communities, culture, and nature of this destination. At Impactful Travel, we understand the importance of responsible tourism and ensure our tours benefit the local communities.

Whether it’s an art workshop or exploring the agriculture of the Sacred Valley, our community-based tourism approach provides authentic and responsible interactions with the locals.

Take one of our Cusco guided tours to explore more of the city and beyond! Although visiting Machu Picchu in a single day is not possible (with us), you can still enjoy a hike outside of the city to admire Incan heritage.

For those seeking adventure, our multi-day Cusco tours offer even more experiences! If you’re planning to visit the capital, don’t hesitate to check out our Lima day tours.

Remember that we have written an extensive Destination Guide for Cusco and surroundings that you can use to get inspired. 

If you can’t find what you’re looking for, don’t worry; we can create a custom itinerary just for you! At Impactful Travel, we love crafting dream trips that exceed your expectations. Get in touch today to plan your perfect trip to Peru!
