Your epic day out begins today very early when we pick you up from your accommodation and take you to Ollantaytambo. Here, you’ll board the train to Aguas Calientes that’ll take you through the stunning Andean mountainous landscape and mysterious Amazonian cloud forest. During the trip, you’ll see several glaciers and snowy peaks, as well as fertile green valleys and Inca agricultural platforms on both sides of the valley.
Upon arrival in Aguas Calientes, you’ll board a bus that’ll take you straight to the entrance of the historic sanctuary of Machu Picchu. You’ll have a guided tour for 3 hours where you’ll receive detailed information on the culture and history of the city. You’ll visit the main temple, Condor’s Temple, the Inca Palace, the solar clock, as well as a stone quarry. You’ll be astounded by the amazing architecture and how innovative the Incas were for their time.
After the tour, you’ll have time to climb the Huayna Picchu Mountain or Machu Picchu Mountain (not included in the tour). Otherwise, you can explore Machu Picchu as much as you like or hike to the Sun Gate or Inca Bridge. You’ll return to Aguas Calientes in the afternoon. You’ll have some time to find a spot for lunch and explore the small town until you head to the train station.
In Aguas Calientes, you’ll board the train to Ollantaytambo and then travel to Cusco in our private transport. We’ll drop you off at the door of your accommodation. The time of your arrival will depend on the time of your train ticket.
