Our 2days train tour to Machu Picchu takes you by private service on one of the most incredible train journeys in the world. Following the route of the Urubamba River all the way to the cloud forest that surrounds Machu Picchu, you enjoy the beautiful scenery of the high Andes. On arrival to Aquas Calientes you check in to your comfortable hotel for a good night’s sleep, so you can get up at dawn to visit Machu Picchu the following day.
MIND: To climb Huayna Picchu mountain you need to book in advance. Entrance to Huayna Picchu Mountain adds USD 20.
If you go with more persons, the price per person reduces. Ask for our prices!
Leaving from Cusco in the morning we’ll travel by bus to the village of Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley where we’ll board our train to Aguas Calientes. With beautiful scenery throughout the journey the train journey itself is an experience. Following the course of the river down the Sacred Valley you’ll arrive to Aguas Calientes by about lunchtime and after checking in to your hotel you’ll have the afternoon free. If you want to take advantage of your free afternoon you can visit the Machu Picchu museum and orchid exhibition which is a 35 minute walk outside of the village or you can just relax in the hot springs that the village is named after.
Waking up early we’ll take the first bus back up to Machu Picchu to enter the site as it opens. We’ll have a 2 hour guided tour of the site during which you’ll learn about the Incas and visit all the most important areas of the citadel. After your tour you’ll have free time to explore the site by yourself and if you have permits to climb either Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu mountain. In the afternoon you will take the train back to Ollantaytambo from where you will carry on by bus back to Cusco.
