  • The tram takes you through around some of Cusco's major historical sites.
  • From Plaza de Armas you'll go uphill to the Christ statue, the museum of corn and one of Cusco's modern areas El Cristo Blanco.
  • The driver also doubles as your tour guide and explains more about the places you'll be seeing that day.
