Overview Itinerary Pricing

Itinerary

Day 1 : Cusco or Ollanta to Machu Picchu by train; overnight Aguas Calientes

Visiting: Cusco or Ollanta, Machu Picchu

This is the best excursion to Machu Picchu! It provides an opportunity to see the incomparable Machu Picchu early in the morning, before crowds arrive. There would be an opportunity to go both days. We have two itineraries to suit any budget!

Option 1 - Budget - Just get me there!

Taxi on your own to the Cusco/Poroy train station; take the Expedition train to Machu Picchu (Aguas Calientes); afternoon to wander around the village; overnight in Aguas Calientes.

Option 2 - Full service - All the frills and thrills!

Pick up at your Cusco hotel for a transfer to the Cusco/Poroy train station; take the Vistadome train to Machu Picchu (Aguas Calientes); afternoon to wander around the village; overnight in Aguas Calientes.

You may select services from either option, for a custom itinerary, e.g., include the transfer, but lunch on your own...or...take the Expedition train, but have a private tour.
