My boyfriend and I loved this tour! Lilyana was our tour guide and it ended up being just us until the very end when the other three people showed up at our last stop. I highly recommend this tour because Cusco can seem a bit dodgy and with a local it made me feel very at ease. Lilyana was super sweet and offered me a poncho when it stared raining. She also recommended a restaurant to eat at the next night which we went to and it was delicious. My favorite part of the tour was the last stop at the pisco making bar where we got to get behind the bar and make our drinks. We even stayed for the band that was setting up. 5 stars!”

This was the first activity I did when I landed in Cusco and I'm so glad I did. Our guide was very knowledgeable, telling us about the history of the town, its architecture, the ancient people and the now locals. Oh, and making the Pisco was so much fun. The bartenders were very friendly. Quality ingredients and liquor. I highly recommend this tour, especially on your first couple nights. It's a great way to get to know the city.
I really wish I could remember my guides' name, Lilliana maybe.”

Getting behind the bar and making your own pisco sour was one of the highlights of our trip! Went back to this bar 2 more times during our trip. Fantastic drinks and atmosphere”

We walked from the Cathedral area up towards San Blas and explored the neighborhood shops and bars and ended with the pisco sour lesson in a private room at Museo del Pisco. Definitely fun for either a group or solo travel and you get to make your own pisco sour.”

I did a solo trip to Cusco, and on the first day in the city I knew I wanted to do something that wasn't too exhausting, considering the early morning flight arrival and needing to get acclimated to the altitude. After a failed attempt at the free walking tour during the day, I decided to opt for this. By far a better decision. Spend the day exploring the city and sites on your own. Having a night tour was an excellent way to see a different side of the city with a local.
The other that were supposed to be part of the tour apparently were sick from the altitude bring Diamox, so I benefited from a solo tour with Lily. She was extremely informative and fun to learn from. We we walked around the normal sites, but also explored several of the side streets, just off the main square. Ending at the Museo Del Pisco bar I'm sure they differ was great and convenient as it was across from my hotel. The staff/bartenders were uber friendly and taught how to make just the right Pisco Sour...by far the best experience of the tour.
This is a great tour to do in the evening before dinner, especially if it's your first night in Cusco. Helps to give you a tour of the city while not being difficult.”

Had SO MUCH FUN on this tour! Not only was our guide Lily really nice and informative, but she made the tour fun. There were just four of us, which made it even better. The walking tour is great, but let's be honest, the pisco sour lesson was the best part! We LOVED the bar where the lesson was held, and the staff and bartenders were super friendly and fun. They all spoke great English. All four of us were able to fully create our own pisco sours, and then we stayed at the bar listening to music and enjoying more food and beverages. I highly recommend this tour for any night of the week - we had a blast.”

I visited Cusco for a trek to Machu Picchu with several family members and friends. The two days before our trek, while we were acclimating, we decided to get a short guided tour of the city. The night walking tour was perfect. Liliana, our guide, was knowledgeable and entertaining! The Pisco Sour lesson was great fun and everyone gets involved! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. It is quick and packed with information and fun!”

This night was so fun. The walking tour was full of information that we did not know about Cusco. The tour guide was excellent. When we went to the bar all of the employees behind the bar were so welcoming. Each of us could make a Pisco Sour of our choice mine was chocolate. We had so much fun that we stayed two additional hours and had another drink and appetizers.”

this was a great way to do a half day tour to not only see different areas of lima, but also to taste different foods, coffees, and desserts in what national geographic ranked as the 1 foodie destination on the planet for 2016”

We met Leleana at the steps of one of the cathedrals in Cusco. The other tour participant was a woman named Samantha. Cusco is a hilly city so this involved a lot of walking up steep streets and many stairs. LeLe showed us how beautiful Cusco is at night and she told us many wonderful stories and historical facts. We ended the night in a bar learning how to make the famous cocktail, PIsco Sour. Each person got to make their own Pisco Sour. It was very fun! Highly recommend!”

My guide, Liliana, provided a most interesting tour of parts of the historic center. She provided historical background as well as perspective on contemporary life. Liliana was personable, and well informed about a variety of topics.
I originally had little interest in the pisco sour lesson but wound up quite enjoying it.”

We lucked out and ended up getting a one on one tour with the guide for this tour. The market tour was very interesting and the pisco sour lesson was great! Would definitely recommend for a less formal, fun tour of the city.”

The guide was attentive to questions, suggested many photograph opportunities, and incorporated many sites into the tour. The tour was leisurely, and not conducted in a hurried way. Upon conclusion of the tour, I felt as though I had been introduced to the Cusco community.”

Our guide, Lilliana, was great and knew all the history of the town. The local market was an awesome addition to the tour and the climb up the hill to see the view after the sun set was phenomenal. The Pisco Sour bar was way better than I had expected and we had a blast learning how to make the local drinks.”

Our guide Lilliana took us to the food market near plaza san francisco. I think it was called santa Clara. We got to see the different animals parts, meet and vegetables. Our guide even bought us a prickly pear to try. I bought coca tea there and peruvian chocolate with quinoa.
We then went to the san blas area which is the artsy part. We didn't see many artisans due to the rain, but it was really great to see.
We finished up the tour at a bar called museo de pisco. The bartender amodeo demonstrated how to make a pisco sour then we got to make our own! We got behind the bar! It was really neat! After the tour i bought a bottle of pisco to take home with me!”

Great tour of the marketplace and neighborhoods in Cusco; wonderful lesson on making and appreciating a Pisco Sour. I had a wonderful time!”

Lillianna, our guide was wonderful... very informative and a great way to see the city and get tips on where and where not to go. On our own, we would never have gone through the market and learned about the local foods and culture. The Pisco sour lesson was a blast and great way to end the tour. Would definitely recommend as a way to learn about the city and end with a drink!!!”

Took this tour the night I arrived. It was a good overall tour of the main areas of Cusco and an opportunity to talk to a local resident about where to eat and go while in Cusco. Also learned about some unique cultural art specific to Cusco. Going to the Pisco Museum and learning to make a Pisco Sour was fun. It was also an opportunity to learn about the different types of Pisco and how they are made.”
