There is no upfront cost at all, not even when you book your free tour in Cusco, it is without charge !

What´s our story behind our Free Walking Tours in Cusco?

The tourism industry is a very competitive sector in Cusco even though this city is the mecca of tourism in Peru and South America, in terms of history. However, for the same reason, most locals work in this sector! Therefore, back in 2014, we decided to open the first free walking tour in Peru. Moreover, we had also have experienced free walking tours in the USA and Europe operated by Christopher Sandman. Overall, we enriched our job experience in the tourism industry and brought Cusco the very trendy concept of walking tours, so here we are! With some up and downs but all things considered, we love our job!
