Highlights
    What to Expect
    Receive an early morning pickup from your Cusco hotel and transfer to the train station in Ollantaytambo. You’ll travel by rail through the winding river valleys to reach Aguas Calientes, the gateway town for Machu Picchu. You’ll make one more transfer to a bus for the zig-zagging ride up mountain switchbacks to reach the famous “lost city” of the Inca.

    Once you’ve entered the park, spend the next two hours enjoying a guided tour of the site. You’ll get a closer look at Machu Picchu highlights including the sacred solar clock, the Royal Quarters, main plaza, and the Temple of the Three Windows, plus much more. You’ll have more time after the guided tour to explore this wondrous world heritage site on your own.

    At the end of your Machu Picchu visit, head back down to Aguas Calientes to grab some food before taking the train back to Ollantaytambo. You’ll be dropped off at your hotel in Cusco in the evening. A full itinerary with timing is listed below.
