The trip was exceptional. It was a perfect introduction to Cuzco city and the history. Joel the guide spoke good English and did know a lot. This bus company is top rated in Cusco, sadly I came across other operators trying to sell tickets using their name and photos. I recommend that you book straight through GYG or look for Cusco Open Tour to get an authentic experience with this Orange bus company.

A very nice visit to Cusco, surprising. We didn't expect anything and we had very nice views of the city, in addition to taking a typical shooter and a coke ceremony. Our guide AJ was very professional, spoke very good English. Frankly a very nice discovery, very pleasant.

We have seen a lot. It's a good start to get an overview of the city. 2-3 stops give you an even deeper insight
