Machu Picchu by train 2D/1N


Visit the famous archeological site of Machu Picchu by train. This is best done with an overnight stay in Aguas Calientes, so you may enter the park early and stay all day. It can also be done in one long day from Cusco without staying the night.

The itinerary is as follows:

Day 1
Go by car 1.5 hours to the train station in Ollantaytambo, for the train hour of your choosing. The train ride to Aguas Calientes is 2 - 2.5 hours depending on the service. In Aguas Calientes the guide will meet you to bring you to your hotel and give you a briefing for the next day. In the evening you can enjoy the town and go to bed early for the big day.
Day 2
You may wake up to visit Machu Picchu at any time you wish. The guide will be ready to take you to the buses that go up to the gates of Machu Picchu. The tour of the ruins is about 2 hours long, which leaves plenty of time to explore Mount Machu Picchu or Huayna Picchu if you have these options. You may relax and enjoy Machu Picchu until it is time for you to go down to Aguas Calientes for the train. The train goes back to Ollantaytambo and then you come back to Cusco by car.
