The bus route takes in some of the major historical points in the main city of Cusco in the first part. The buses generally leave and do a short three minute loop back to the starting point to check if there are more passengers to join the tour. Firstly, you will pass and hear about Iglesia de la Merced on Calle Mantas, from here the bus loops around on to Calle San Bernardo and passes Plaza Regocijo which holds markets on some days of the week. Plaza San Francisco is the next main attraction. In this square you will hear about Iglesia San Francisco (San Francisco Church), Colegio de Ciencias (College of Sciences) and in the far corner you will see Arco Santa Clara (The Santo Clara Arch). The bus then travels down Calle Garcilaso where you will see colonial balconies one of which was the home of Garcilaso de la Vega, a famous chronicler.

 

Next you will travel down one of Cusco´s nicest avenues, Avenida del Sol. Qoricancha, the Inca Temple of the Sun, and the surrounding grounds can be seen from the bus as well as the famous historical mural by Juan Bravo. This mural was created in 1992 and depicts the battle between the Incas and the Spanish. Before you turn onto Avenida Tullumayo you will see a monument of a famous Inca, Pachacutec. Across from this is Cusco´s biggest artisanal market. The bus tour continues up to Limacpampa. In the middle of the junction there is another Inca monument dedicated to another famous Incan and his wife. Avenida de la Cultura isn’t the prettiest of avenues but houses some important buildings like hospitals, banks and universities. As the bus turns off left and starts to climb you will see one of the oldest and most important universities in Peru. For the next 15 minutes or so 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.

 

From here the bus begins to make its way back to the city. Fortunately, 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 accesss 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. Apparently bus ticket holders have free entry to the house at midnight. However, I would take this with a pinch of salt!!
