Visit an UNESCO World Heritage Site and enjoy the Andean Scenery!

Depart from Cusco to discover the mountaintop Inca site while learning about its construction, history and what daily life was like for its residents. This trip's relaxed, non-strenuous pace is a great option for first-time visitors, families and solo travelers alike, and features three different train ride options. A gentle approach as opposed to the multiple day hike along the Inca Trail. There would be an option to extend this to an overnight in Aguas Calientes.


My partner will pick you up from your hotel and take to the train station, and then we will have a shuttle of 3 hours, depending on the starting point of the train service.

Once we are in Aguas Calientes (our meeting point) we will take a bus up to Machu Picchu and enjoy the fascinating views of the Incan site and its mountains. Then you will have plenty of time to explore the whole site with a lot of information of history.
After that you will have free time to walk around and take some more beautiful pictures.

Later on we will take the bus dawn to Aguas Calientes and have our lunch in one the local restaurant; finally we will take our train back to Cuzco and arrive by night depending on the train schedule.

If you are staying in one the hotel of the sacred valley of the Incas , let us know it in advance to reorganize the plan and work according to this. There will be some little changes in the train schedule, but not by much

You will have briefing the night before to organize
