A great way to make the trip from Puno to Cusco. The entrance to the bus was a little confusing, with a lot of people (there were two buses), but everything went well. They offered a breakfast snack, with a sandwich, juice and cake. Tour was excellent, with guide Marita very fun, explaining and staging everything very well in each place. I recommend!

As an alternative to a direct service between Puno & Cusco, I enjoyed visiting the stops along the way even though it takes 4h extra. You’ll visit Raqchi and the Andahuaylillas so once in Cusco, you can skip visiting these places. Bus was good although once someone in front of you reclines their seat, it’s very uncomfortable. Snacks and water + juice were provided, also very good guide commentary and a safe driver.

The bus was comfy with reclining seats, and a snack pack was provided at the start of the journey. The breaks were approx one an hour and we saw some interesting sites. The guide gave information in Spanish and English, although it was sometimes hard to tell when he was changing languages or to hear him clearly because of the mask / microphone combination. Overall, I would recommend
