A quick way to get to know Machu Picchu in one day, if you don’t have much time to be in Cusco. You will know through a two-hour guided tour the most important sectors of Machu Picchu. Then you will have an hour to continue visiting on your own.
03:30 am to 4:00 am pick-up from the hostel; then go to Ollantaytambo train station; we board the train at 06:10 am and then take a train trip of approximately two hours; 8:00 am we will arrive at the Aguas Calientes station (2000 meters above sea level) where a transfer will be waiting for us to help us board the bus; the bus will take us on a 30 minute journey, ascending along a zigzag path, towards the sanctuary of Machu Picchu. The tour includes a guided tour of the Citadel of approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, visiting the Main Square, the Circular Tower, the Sacred Solar Clock, the royal rooms, the Temple of the Three Windows and the cemeteries. At the indicated time, you must descend from Machu Picchu to Aguas Calientes by bus or walk so you can have lunch in peace and board the return train to Ollantaytambo (2 hours by train), where our transportation to Cusco (2 hours) will await us.
