Machu Picchu Tour By Train Itinerary
Cusco – Aguas Calientes- Machu Picchu
You will leave Cusco early in the morning (around 4:30 am) for a trip to the village of Ollantaytambo which is located in the Sacred Valley. This is where you will catch the train to Aguas Calientes. The train journey itself is filled with stunning views and will take just under 2 hours. You will then bus up to Machu Picchu where you will be given a guided tour of the site and learn about the Inca civilization, visiting all of the highlights of the ruins (2 hours).
After your guided tour, you and your guide will part ways and if you have booked an additional hike such as Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu mountain, you will have time for the hike as well as get to explore the site on your own. There are several places to explore that are not part of the tour such as the Inca bridge and the sun gate.
In the afternoon you will get back on the bus and head to Aguas Calientes town. You will then board the train back to Ollantaytambo, where a private van will be waiting for you to drive back to Cusco.
