A day trip to Machu Picchu is a great way if you are short on time but still want to include this wonder of the world in your itinerary.

TRAVEL ITINERARY

Pickup at 3.15 to 3.45 am approximately (depending on your hotel location) and we start our drive to Ollantaytambo where we will take the 6.40 am train to Aguas Calientes, arriving at around 9.00 am after a beautiful journey through the incredible landscapes of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. When we arrive in Aguas Calientes we will take a shuttle bus to the site of Machu Picchu, where our guide will be waiting for us. The guided tour will last for about two hours. We will see the most important monuments like the Royal Quarters, the Main Plaza, the Circular Tower, the Sacred Sun Dial, the Temple of the Three Windows, amongst others.
