As 2016 draws to a close, we are happy to announce our first ever Best of Cusco awards. After an exhaustive search, our team has carefully selected award winners for the Restaurant, Bar, Travel Agency, and Retail Store categories.

The inspiration behind these awards comes from the TripAdvisor feedback that we have received for the tips that we share during our workshops. Unfortunately, most of the information available online tends to be biased or outdated. For us, this is a chance to shed light on some of the better places in the city.

We encourage both travelers and locals alike to visit our award winners and to experience our favorite dishes and experiences in Cusco first-hand! If you have any questions, please feel free to drop us a note at info@facesofcusco.com
