Walking Tour of Cusco or Sacsayhuaman


2-4 hours

One of our college students who live in Cusco will meet you in a convenient location and show you the highlights of this spectacular city or the breathtaking ruins at nearby Sacsayhuaman. The tour will be customized to your interests.

You’ll learn the magical Incan and Spanish history of the area.  Depending on your interests, level of stamina for uphill walking, and schedule your tour could focus on history, shopping for gifts, exploring neighborhoods,  the main Mercado, stunning views and nature hikes, or Incan archaeological sites.

The minimum charge is $30, which allows for a donation to support the Children’s  Home as well as paying for your guide’s time and planning. If you’d like to do this tour solo, just register as if for two people. Thank you!


All hikes, tours, and classes are led by friendly, experienced adolescent youth guides from Niños Del Sol Children’s Home.  Your payment, which is a tax-deductible donation in the United States, helps support the Niños Del Sol Children’s Home in Urubamba and our companion residence for college kids in Cusco.

Our adolescent and young adult Niños designed these programs on their own, guided by their lifelong interactions with tourists to the Sacred Valley. They’re learning business skills as well as practicing their English while they earn a part-time income and help support their home.

We are contacted by many tourists who want to visit our home, bringing gifts or offering the gift of their labor, but for kids, this is a better option. They are learning how to earn rather than passively receive, and they are meeting donors as equals, with something of value to offer in exchange for your donation. Thank you for supporting this program.
