About
Machu Picchu is the finest example of Inca imperial phase architecture left to us by the people who established and ruled over the greatest empire ever seen in the Americas. It is situated in the high mountain forests, between the Andes and the Amazon basin, just over 120 kilometres from the city of Cusco. Machu Picchu is one of the world’s most well-known sacred places, and our one or two-day train tour to Machu Picchu takes you on one of the most incredible train journeys in the world, following the course of the Urubamba River from high Andean plains all the way to the cloud forest that surrounds the ruins of Machu Picchu.

    Machu Picchu
    Stop: 5 hours - Admission included
    Our trip to Machu Picchu leaves the city of Cusco at 6:00 am, as we travel by bus to the village of Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, where we will board the train to Aguas Calientes, the small town located below the ruins of Machu Picchu. The train follows the Urubamba River as the valley narrows to form a sheer gorge and we pass through different climactic zones, with views of majestic mountains and glimpses of ancient ruins. From the station at Aguas Calientes, a short bus ride takes us up to the Inca city of Machu Picchu, the finest surviving example pre-Hispanic architecture and engineering, where we will enjoy a private guided tour lasting around 2 hours, during which you’ll learn about the Incas and visit all the most important areas of the citadel. After the tour, you will also have time to explore the ruins independently. We will return to Aguas Calientes in the afternoon and board our train for the return trip to Cusco.
