I honestly thought this would a nice and quiet day. Simple travel, get some writing done while we ride the bus. Instead we had an amazing tour guide, and every place from the museum to the last stop which was a chapel was great! These weren’t randomly chosen, on the way things to pass time. They were a well thought out and coordinated tour. My first jaw dropping moment in Peru was the final stop. So take the bus! Look forward to each stop… and get a seat on the non-door side of the bus. They have more leg room. And had the better view 90% of the time.

The tour is actually done by avala tours. I want to acknowledge our guide. I give it 5 stars for the explanations about the history, economy and politics of the country. It really entertained me a good. Sorry for forgetting your name but we took too many tours and I can't remember anymore (I was traveling on October 8). The only thing that would improve is the times at each stop that are too short. Food also hurt me.

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!
