We had a great day touring with Inti Sun Trek. Jesus was an excellent guide and went above and beyond to help make sure that we not only got the most out of our day but our entire trip as well. Because of Jesus we were able to to squeeze a whole new adventure into our trip we didn’t even think we had time for. But he made it happen and it made our trip. Willy was our driver and after our experience I can safely say I’d trust him behind the wheel any day. The Bridge was 100% worth the visit! And there are several great places to stop and see along the way. Thank you Jesus, Willy, and Inti Sun Trek for an amazing time!

I want to take a moment and comment on the amazing experience I had as a client of Inti Sun Trek. Our guide, Jesus Villafuerte, and his incredible staff were amazing in providing such an educational and fun trip to the ancient Inca bridge called Queswachaka. Beginning with the briefing previous to our trip, from the punctuality of our pick up at my hotel with Jesus's experienced driver, then on to the bridge itself, a fantastically prepared lunch over looking a beautiful lake, and stops at other natural scenic [laces along the way, Jesus was on top of every detail.

His passion to make this amazing bridge, which has been recognized as World Heritage, to be better know and integrated into the regions tourism is remarkable and needs more support. I want to commend Jesus on this goal and encourage anyone reading this review to book a day trip with Jesus to Queswachaka. Jesus also personally knows the local cultural authorities who annually must rebuild the bridge using knowledge based on ancestral knowledge of weaving. In fact, we no less got to me a very important man who actually gave us a hands-on workshop on some of the techniques used to build the bridge. This was remarkable and way beyond my expectations.

Thank you Jesus for an amazing day in Canas. Canas is truly a beautiful department in Cusco.

On a late afternoon in April I walked into the Cusco office of Inti Sun Trek to ask if there was any chance of a day tour on the following Friday to the Qeswachaca Inca Bridge. I was in Cusco as part of a larger tour group but decided I would rather spend a whole day visiting something less touristy than the half-day tour to the South Valley on offer as part of the group tour. Having already researched the day trips available, it was the trip to the Qeswachaca Bridge that appealed due to the fact it was ‘off the beaten tourist trail’ and promised to be a unique experience. Maybe it was my enthusiasm which prompted Jesus to offer me a personalised tour on that Friday but I couldn’t believe my luck when I walked out with a day trip planned and booked! At 7am I was expecting to be picked up by Jesus but instead I was greeted in my hotel foyer by Jesus, a driver and the lovely Violeta as a companion! I felt I was receiving ‘royal’ treatment. So we set off through the early morning streets of Cusco before heading in a south easterly direction towards Apurimac Canyon and the Bridge. After learning about life in the towns through which we passed, our first stop was at Rumi Punku, about 20 km from Cusco. Jesus explained the history of the massive stone walls that mark what was once the official gateway to the Incan capital of Cusco. From there we travelled further into the countryside till we reached the Combapata Overlook which has lovely views of the Salcca and Vilcanota River confluence; the Vilcanota River is considered the sacred river of the Incas. From here we headed towards the town of Yanaoca (where it was noted I was the only ‘gringo’ in town), and the landscape began to change, becoming more rugged and hilly, with winding roads that weave up and down between farms and stone-fenced paddocks – some housing llamas, alpacas, sheep, donkeys, cattle or various crops, and I was excited to see that, yes, I was going somewhere different and special. One thing I love about Peru is the interaction between the people and their livestock, and we passed many individuals or families as they shepherded their animals from place to place. Here the people rely on the resources of the land of which they are part – their houses are built from natural local materials, from the mud walls to the thatched roofs. There is not a tractor to be seen anywhere and the occasional vehicle encountered may well be packed with local folk riding on the back tray, but generally speaking, transport of people, goods, animals and children happens ‘on foot’. Between the primal landscapes and the rudimentary farms and the colours of the local people, I felt I had travelled back in history to a place where time is plentiful but money and possessions are short. On the other hand, the stone fences combined with the patchwork colours of the crops created almost modern, Mondrian-like artworks on the hillsides.
As we neared our destination the road took us down towards the Apurimac Canyon through a series of hairpin bends where I appreciated not only the scenery but also the skills of our driver. We stopped for photos at every opportunity and, taking advantage of his local knowledge, Jesus was keen to take the best shots of this sole traveller. We arrived at the entrance to the bridge and ravine where there is a billboard outlining the 4-day reconstruction process of the bridge which occurs in early June each year. (As this was April, I had been warned to check that the structure was still safe before visiting, but I need not have worried – it was in great shape.) From here, there is a steep but easy walk down a series of steps until you are able to look down upon the bridge itself – and another photo opportunity. On our way down we met a local farmer and his sheep – and the sheep posed happily for me. They seemed to be the only other living things around as we were quite alone. Once down at the bridge it was ‘over you go’ and I felt privileged to walk upon a bridge made of grass which had been hand-made by local families in this area, fashioned exactly as in Inca times. The bridge is around 28 metres long and 1.2 metres wide, and is suspended between the two sides of the ravine, but the height above the water is not so great as to make you feel unsafe. And it is quite sturdy and secure so I made the most of this once in a lifetime experience. Jesus explained the 4-day process of the annual bridge construction. Each strand of the rope bridge is 40 metres long and composed only of blades of grass which are soaked and pressed together, then woven into strands, then into ropes. Every local family is responsible for at least one strand. When the bridge is built it must be perfectly balanced and there is a chief 'engineer' who oversees and ultimately approves the final balance. It takes three days to gather the strands together from the various families and to reconstruct the new bridge. The old bridge is cut free from its rock supports for the river to take away. Then on the fourth day, they party! Jesus also introduced to me to one of the local caretakers, who presented me with a visitor’s book which I happily signed.
Saying goodbye to the bridge, we made our way to the car which, happily, was waiting for us on the other side. But the fun wasn’t over yet. Recrossing the ravine (on a road bridge this time) we headed back towards Yanaoca, stopping by a local primary school to inspect what must be the world’s smallest volcano protruding from the field like an oversized mushroom! Climbing to the top is easy and the small caldera easily accessed. From there it was a short drive to the town of Pampamarca where we stopped to inspect the attractive market plaza with its white-painted adobe church and a monument to an uprising against the Spanish. The plaza was packed with locals, enjoying a spot of lunch and just revelling in each other’s company. By now we too were getting hungry so it was next stop, Pomacanchi Lagoon, where we laid out a picnic rug and enjoyed a scrumptious lunch, prepared by Jesus himself (and mine was even gluten-free!). As we ate, drank and relaxed, I watched for birds rising from the reeds and was amused to see a farmer conversing with his cows as he moved them to their own lunch spot by the lagoon. It was almost too idyllic to leave, but we still had three more lagoons to visit before our day was done. A lookout above Acopia Lagoon presented yet another photo opportunity, then as we passed the blue-green waters of lake we kept a keen eye out for flamingos but, alas, it was a little too early in the season. Another hill, another stop, another view: this time we looked out across the third and fourth lagoons, Asnacqoccha and Pampamarca. By now there were clouds gathering, adding a dramatic backdrop to the vista. We stopped at both of these lakes for yet more photos and at the last lake the local ladies were doing their laundry while their children played by the water’s edge. But then it was time to head for home and we drove back to Cusco, arriving at 5pm, having seen a small but real part of Peru. A big thankyou to Inti Sun Trek for giving me such a wonderful day. If you have a day up your sleeve in Cusco, just contact Jesus and go!

We loved the tour of the Qeswachaca Bridge. It was a full day and we were able to see and learn much more than we had anticipated. Jesus was very knowledgeable and had many interesting insights about the history and culture of the area that we would not have been able to learn on our own.

I would highly recommend this company and their tours! We hope to come back again.

This was well planned, and an awesome day trip. The meals were excellent. The guide was extremely supportive and spoke excellent English. The driver was one of the best we have seen in Peru. I would be happy to book a tour with them again and recommend them. We even got to go to a bonus archeological site! We were running a little early.

I had seen photos of the Q’eswachaka bridge while in a museum in Cusco and was fascinated, so when I saw a sign advertising a day trip there with Inti Sun, I immediately went inside to inquire. Turned out there was a tour the very next morning, so I signed up. Jesus and his driver picked me up promptly at 5:00 am the next day. It was a long day, but totally worth it. We stopped for breakfast in Urcos and saw all of the livestock that was there to be sold and walked through the huge market in the town to get a taste of the local culture. We made a few more stops before the rope bridge at some view points and to see some mini volcanoes. Jesus, who is very knowledgeable of the local history and sights shared much of this knowledge with us. Of course the rope bridge was the highlight of the day. What a spectacular place!! Jesus explained everything to us about the history of the bridge and how they rebuild it every June in just 3 days. He also had close up photos of the construction and had the bridge maintenance man give us a demonstration of how the rope is twisted and made. On the return trip we stopped at several lakes and had a lovely picnic lunch next to one. It was a fantastic day and tour! Thanks Jesus!
