It is an activity that takes place in a car so it is not very difficult. You will only do short walks when you reach the tourist attractions. The highest height that is reached during the tour is 3,700 meters so it is good to have acclimatized days before in the city of Cusco. The weather is very changing there are days when it is very sunny (max temperature 18 C °) and others very cold in the morning (-5 C °). Solar radiation is very extreme in the Andes of Cusco, so we recommend bringing a good sunscreen.
