Machupicchu by Train 2 Days

Travel by train (with beautiful views of the countryside) to Aguas Calientes, spend a night in a comfortable hotel, tour the Inca city, this is a good travel way to see this historic attraction for those under time pressure, for anyone who has missed the chance to book a spot on the Inca Trail but still wants to see Machu Picchu, for families with small children, or for those who are less physically fit. Machu Picchu is the New Wonder of the World and should be available to everybody who wants to visit it, not just those who can hike long distances.

The day begins with a scenic drive from Cusco to the Ollantaytambo train station, where you will catch an early train to Aguas Calientes. This trip to Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu city) will take approximately 3.5 hours (2 hours by bus and 1.5 hours by train), during which you can enjoy the impressive views of the Peruvian landscapes. Once you arrive and check in at the accommodation, you will have time to enjoy lunch. You have different options on how to spend the afternoon in Aguas Calientes, including visiting the hot springs. Tonight, your guide will meet you at your accommodation to give you a briefing and review the schedule for the next day.

* We advise you to go to bed early because day 2 will start very early.


You will take a 30 minute bus ride to the entrance of Machu Picchu. Upon arrival, we offer you a historical guided tour to discover more about the site, the life and culture of its inhabitants.

After the guided tour, you will have plenty of time to explore Machu Picchu on your own. For those looking for the best photographs of the site, we offer the option to climb Waynapicchu Mountain or Machu Picchu Mountain (when available).

* Additional treks in Machu Picchu: These additional hiking options can take approximately 3 to 4 hours to go up and down depending on your speed. (If you want to do this, please inform us during booking as places are limited and tickets must be purchased in advance).

* Important to know: an added benefit of adding one of these treks is that it allows 2 entrances to Machu Picchu compared to the assigned entrance if you only have the standard entrance. Once you leave the citadel (including use of the bathroom), you will not be allowed to re-enter.

After your day in Machu Picchu, you will have to walk to Aguas Calientes (approximately 50-60 min) where you will have to board your train at the appropriate time (as indicated on your ticket). This train will take you to Ollantaytambo where the transport will pick you up to take you to Cusco (with the drop-off point in Plaza San Francisco).
