We recommend this for greater comfort and a more personalized experience; you can take your time to admire the scenery and stop to take photos.

You can get a taxi on your own at the official taxi cooperative office, which is located just in front of the bridge on Avenida Amazonas where you are guaranteed a clean car in decent condition with a registered driver. Fares to Cusco cost between S/.50 – S/.60 (Approx. US$17.85 – US$21.50).

By bus: We do not recommend this option because buses are not in good condition, are overcrowded, and make constant stops so it takes much longer to get to Cusco. If you want this kind of local experience, you can take any of the buses that stop on the Avenida Amazonas, the main road that runs through Pisac just outside the Chaska Pisac Hotel to the bus terminal in Cusco.
