This is the ideal and least rushed way to see Machu Picchu! You will enjoy the train ride to Aguas Calientes. Check in to your hotel and wander around the village and its outdoor market, hot springs baths and local museum. Stay overnight in Aguas Calientes. On the second day, be ready to meet your guide early in the morning, for the shuttle, entrance and 7:00 a.m. guided tour of Machu Picchu (before the crowds arrive!). There is an option to climb Huayna Picchu at 7 or 10 a.m. (must order tickets at least 90 days in advance).  After your tour, you have a bit of time to explore the ruins further, or hike to Inti Punku. Return to Aguas Calientes and catch the late afternoon train back to Cusco/Poroy.  New regulations for 2019: The maximum time at Machu Picchu is 4 hours, not including the Huayna Picchu climb.

Price of US$480 per person, double occupancy, is the budget option, with Expedition Train, accommodation and group tour.  Full service options (transfers, Vistadome Train, accommodation and private tour with lunch) are available from US$705 per person, double occupancy.  Solo travelers, please contact us for prices.
