Full description
A private car and professional driver will pick you up from your hotel in the morning in Cusco or the Sacred Valley. On the 1.5-hour drive you will be mesmerized by the change in scenery. While descending in altitude, you will be surrounded by mountainous terrain and traditional Peruvian agricultural landscapes. The driver will drop you off at the Ollantaytambo train station where you will board the train to Aguas Calientes. Marvel at the lush surroundings that make up the area near Machu Picchu.

Arriving in Aguas Calientes, the small village located at the base of the famous Inca site, a member of staff will be waiting to lead you to the bus station. After boarding the bus for the short ride up to the sacred citadel, a private guide will meet you to begin your adventure. You will take a journey through the streets of the ancient city with your private guide. After the guided tour, take time to explore the complex at your own pace, snap some photos, and hang out with the resident llamas.

When you are ready, you will board the bus once more and make your way back down to Aguas Calientes. After arriving, have lunch or stroll through the markets before boarding the train back to Ollantaytambo. Once in Ollantaytambo, your private car and driver will transport you back to your hotel in Cusco.
