Your Cusco food walking tour starts in Plaza de Armas, by the Starbucks entrance.
Your local, friendly guide will first of all introduce you to the popular Peruvian snack, Tamales, which are wrapped in corn husks. Corn is important to the Andean way of life, and your guide will tell you why. You’ll also learn about the history of the first Inca Palace, the Plaza Nazarenas, Calle Purgatorio, and Ukupacha. Find out more about snakes and what they represent spiritually in the underworld.
Next up, Ceviche! Your trip to Peru is incomplete until you try this national dish. Along the way, you will learn about the different artistic expressions in the San Blas area before stopping for something sweet – Picarones. A classic dessert, similar to a donut glazed with syrup. It will be accompanied by Chicha Morada, a traditional purple corn drink commonly served with meals.
Continuing from there, be ready to try the best coffee in Cusco – Organically blended and made by local farmers. From here you will also learn the history of the Temple of the Sun, and about the most important Temple of the Inca times – Pachacutec.
