I have enjoyed traveling on Inka Express multiple times. You get to visit Andayhuayllilas, Raqchi, La Raya, Pucara and more. The seats are comfortable and stretch out so you are in a more lounging position. Definitely look into this option.

I took the Inka Express from Puno to Cusco today and it was such an enjoyable experience. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and I really liked the stops. They were beautiful and very interesting. Lunch was excellent and the bus super comfortable. The stewardess offered drinks regularly and with all the stops and the beautiful landscape the 10 hour journey just flew by. I can thoroughly recommend.

This is a great affordable way to do some sightseeing as you’re traveling from Cusco to Lake Titicaca. One of my party left her cell phone on the bus in Puno, and the next day we were contacted by the company, telling us they had found the phone. They arranged for us to pick it up in Puno. Much appreciated!
