  • Visit the Temple of the Moon and the Devil’s Balcony on horseback
  • Enjoy a more intimate experience than you would on a large-group bus tour
  • Learn of the region’s rich Incan history and heritage along the way
  • Includes all equipment and round-trip travel from your Cusco accommodation
What to Expect
Choose a morning or afternoon horseback safari, and meet your guide during pickup at your accommodation in Cusco. Begin your half-day tour as you transfer out to a ranch in the Villa San Blas neighborhood. On arrival, meet the horses and muleteers, and then receive a safety briefing. Afterward, climb onto your horse and ride out toward the archaeological site of the Temple of the Moon. With your guide leading the way, gain insight into the region’s ancient history and rich cultural heritage.  Pass traditional local communities in the countryside and see a way of life that’s quite different than bustling Cusco. On arrival at the Devil’s Balcony—known locally as Chacan—explore features including a natural cave that the Incas used as a shrine thousands of years ago. Replenish your energy with a snack by the cave, then return on horseback to the ranch, where you board your vehicle for the journey back to your Cusco accommodation.

The guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and kind. The vistas were amazing. The horses were very well behaved. Above all the animals looked very well taken care of. Bonus points for the sweet family dogs that trailed along.

Not only was our tour guide extremely helpful and friendly, but the horses were extremely well behaved and it was easy to ride with them even for people in the group that didn’t have experience.

This is a great trip. Olga was our English speaking owner/guide who provided a fun, safe, educational experience. Visited a variety of Inca sites over the period of 4 hours. What I really like is that we saw sites that were a little less accessible if you were not on a horse.
