Cusco Sightseeing is the perfect If you don’t have time to take the traditional City tour and the near ruins. The Bus leaves from Espinar Street, close to the Main Square.
The tour takes 2 hours. The guided tour is given in Spanish and English. However, the tour is informative and helpful for those who have just arrived to Cusco.
You will have some of the best panoramic views of all of Cusco. The bus stops at Cristo Blanco for 10 minutes. This is a great opportunity to take photos and take in the remarkable views of the sprawling city below you. This statue was donated to Cusco by a group of Palestinians that took refuge in Cusco years ago. The tour´s next stop is a small fábrica, a small textile manufacturer. Here a local woman will explain how they use alpaca wool to create fabrics. You will see and feel the difference between natural and synthetic materials and even get to feel baby alpaca wool. You can purchase clothing and other handmade alpaca items here. Bus passengers get a discount of 25-30% here.
the bus passes the famous archaeological site of Sacsayhuaman on the way. The guide gives a brief insight in to the historical site and the bus does stop momentarily for some photos, only from the bus though. Getting one of the bus tours in Cusco doesn’t give you access to these historical sites. A Cusco Tourist Ticket(BTG) is required for entrance to the site. After the great sight of Sacsayhuaman, the bus tour passes San Cristobal, a church high above and overlooking the main square. The last interesting thing pointed out by the guide is an old, uninhabited house that is said to have paranormal activity.
