3. From Cusco: Machu Picchu Small Group Full-Day Tour
Join a small-group tour and go on an unforgettable guided journey to Machu Picchu. Receive a guided tour of the awe-inspiring citadel from an official guide and benefit from a tour package that includes hotel pickup from Cusco, train tickets, and bus shuttles.
After being picked up from your hotel, be driven to Cusco's train station and embark on a 2-hour scenic train ride to the town of Aguas Calientes. Admire the breathtaking beauty of the Sacred Valley of the Incas set against the stunning Andean landscape.
Upon arrival in Aguas Calientes, hop on a small bus and travel past the town of Urubamba and up to the ruins of the so-called “Lost City of the Incas”, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and now one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
Get dropped off at the main entrance to Machu Picchu where you will be met by your expert guide who will lead you around the sacred hilltop site and tell you about the fascinating history and culture of the Incas.
Marvel at more than 600 terraces, 160 buildings, thousands of steps, several temples, and 16 fountains built by the Incan Emperor Pachacutec.
Gaze up the restored buildings, like the Temple of the Sun and the Room of the Three Windows, and take in the sweeping scenery of the surrounding valley.
Descend back down to Aguas Calientes where you will enjoy free time to walk around the city and look for a place to have lunch.
At a scheduled time, board the train back to Cusco and be picked up at the train station to be transported back to your hotel.
