Full description

Enjoy a relaxing and scenic ride from Cusco to Puno. Learn about the fascinating sights along the way from a knowledgeable guide. From Andahuaylilas to La Raya, you'll see glorious vistas and eat delicious food.

Board your air-conditioned bus in Cusco, and begin your journey to Puno, surrounded by stunning Peruvian landscapes.

Hop off the bus in Andahuaylillas, a small town with the beautiful Baroque Church of Andahuaylillas, also known as the "Sistine Chapel of America". Wonder at the intricate frescoes adorning the walls.

Continue to Raqchi, where you can explore the ancient Wiracocha Temple. Built to celebrate Wiracocha, the "giver of life", the temple's size may surprise you. At 302 feet long and 84 feet wide, this enormous structure stood the test of time.

After marveling at the Incan buildings of Raqchi, drive to Sicuani, for a tasty buffet lunch with your fellow passengers.

After eating your fill, reboard the bus for a stunning photo-op at La Raya, the highest point on your drive. At 14,152 feet high, you can gaze at the rugged mountains of the Andes.

Continue back in time to Pukara, an ancient town dating from 1,800 BC. Explore the ruins and the Pukara Lithic Museum to learn more about the cultures that created Pukara.

End your tour in Puno, on the shores of the breathtaking Lake Titicaca, ready to explore more of what Peru has to offer.
