Maytaq Wasin is a charming and unpretentious boutique hotel conveniently located in central Cusco, just 100 metres from the city’s main historic square. The hotel is an ideal, comfortable base for anyone keen to discover this beautiful city's vast collection of cultural sights and attractions.
The hotel’s 24 rooms are generally well presented, with plenty of modern conveniences. All rooms come with an en-suite bathroom with shower, and some have a separate bathtub as well. There’s a flat-screen TV with cable channels, along with a hairdryer, desk and fan. Rooms offer a good amount of space and are available as twins or doubles.
Although the hotel is located in the city’s historic area, it has a decidedly contemporary character and is bright and airy throughout. Guests can enjoy pretty views of the surrounding area and nearby buildings from the shaded terrace, which is a lovely spot for relaxing at the end of a busy day. A complimentary buffet breakfast is served, with additional meals available at an extra cost. The hotel’s restaurant serves an array of locally inspired dishes, using only freshly prepared ingredients procured from close by.
There's plenty to do in the immediate vicinity and across Cusco. The nearby Plaza de Armas is the beating heart of the city, a lively square steeped in history, with numerous cafes, restaurants and communal seating areas. Wander through the city’s zigzagging streets to discover quirky eateries offering local delicacies and thriving markets selling all sorts of wares. There’s also an impressive collection of well preserved churches, cathedrals and other buildings of cultural importance, with many museums that reveal the city’s rich history.
Although there are no designated facilities for children at the hotel, families are more than welcome and there's plenty of entertainment for all age groups in and around Cusco.

Thank you, Lisa! Our trip was wonderful even with the weather disruption. We loved seeing so many different parts of the country, meeting people and experiencing the culture. The desert was surely a highlight for our boys and the creativity and artisanship of everything from food to crafts were a highlight for me. A special shout out to our guide and driver, they became a special part of our trip and we will forever be grateful for meeting them and learning from them. I cannot believe we had to wait three years for this adventure but it was certainly worth the wait! Thanks for all your help building the itinerary, modifying it and troubleshooting during our stay.

Hi Lisa and everyone at Tourdust,
We've had a wonderful time on our holiday and wanted to pass our appreciation to you. Everything has been expertly planned and executed, allowing us to enjoy the holiday to its fullest. Special appreciation to Muhammed, Ibrahim, and Omar, our Atlas guide, cook, and muleteer, who couldn't have done more for us and were just generally wonderful and hardworking. Riad Hanane is a perfect base in Marrakech to complement the trekking as it's ina less touristy area of the medina, which we appreciated. The staff and accomodation was superb.Thank you again for a trip to remember!
Bob, May, Grace, and Lucas

Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
Kind regards, Carol
