4. From Cusco: 3-Day Tour to Machu Picchu with Hotel Stays
It can be difficult, setting up everything you need to visit Machu Picchu: transportation, accommodation, guides, and more. This three-day excursion to Machu Picchu through the nearby city of Cusco streamlines the travel process by organizing all of those things in advance. With two nights of accommodation in Cusco and a full day dedicated to exploring Machu Picchu with a guide, this tour package allows you to explore this Unesco World Heritage site, even if you have limited time in the area.
Upon arrival at the Cusco airport, our guide will meet you and transfer you to your hotel in our private transport. After check-in, our guide will brief you and check the details of the next day's activities and answer any questions you may have. If you want to avoid the altitude in Cusco today, upon arrival at the Cusco airport we can transfer you directly to the Ollantaytambo train station and board the train to Aguas Calientes (you can then choose between sleeping in Cusco or Aguas Calientes)
After breakfast at your hotel, we will pick you up and transfer you in our private transportation to the Sacred Valley Ollantaytambo train station and board the Inca Rail train to Aguas Calientes (Machupicchu town). This train trip allows you to appreciate the fascinating landscape along the sacred Vilcanota River. Upon arrival at the Aguas Calientes train station, our staff will greet you and assist you to board the bus and take a short walk to the main entrance gate of Machupicchu to begin a unique experience exploring one of the New Seven Wonders of the world accompanied by a professional guide who will share with you all his knowledge about the history, traditions and more that surround this mysterious and enigmatic Inca citadel.
Once the guided tour is over, you will have free time to explore the wonders of Machupicchu on your own. After finishing your visit, board the bus to Aguas Calientes for lunch (not included) and enjoy some extra time in town to shop for local souvenirs and then board the train back to Ollantaytambo train station where our staff will be waiting for you and be transferred in our private transportation back to your hotel in Cusco.
After breakfast at your hotel, we will transfer you back to the airport according to your flight itinerary
