Full-Day Machu Picchu Tour From Cusco

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    We will pick you up from your hotel/hostel around 3:00am and take you by bus to Ollantaytambo. There you will embark the train to Aguas Calientes, arriving in Aguas Calientes around 7:50 am.

    Then you can choose between two options: you can hike to Machu Picchu, which will take between 1-2 hours to reach the top, or you can go there by bus (bus ticket included), which will take around 35 minutes.

    At the entrance to Machu Picchu, you will be greeted by our friendly guide, who will explain the history and guide you through the Inca ruins, showing you the most important places and describing their purposes during the Inca times. It will be a great lesson of history and culture of the Incan Empire connected with the very nice walking in beautiful scenery.

    You will also have time for discovering this unique place on your own. You can stay in Machu Picchu until the maximum of 5 pm.

    If you decide to stay less time in Machu Picchu, you will also have a chance to visit Aguas Calientes town (Now called Machu Picchu Pueblo).

    From Machu Picchu to Aguas Calientes you will return on your own. You can walk down (around 1,5-2 hours, depending on your physical conditions) or you can take a bus (not included).

    Just remember that you need to be in Aguas Calientes at least 30 minutes before departure of your train to Ollantaytambo. In Ollantaytambo, you will find our bus next to the train station, which will take you to Cusco.

    Your one day Machu Picchu trip will end in Plaza de Armas in Cusco after midnight.

    Great Company!
    I have such a great time with Inkana Travel. They took me to a spot that was not common to many tourists and off the beaten path. They really care about their customers and make sure they have a great and efficient time in Peru. Most of all they are interested in making sure you see the real Peru, the parts a traveler would love to see and experience. I really loved hanging out with them.

    Professional and adventurous tour
    I took the tour with my friend and as we heard so many disastrous story from travelling agencies in Peru we were rather very reserve to this on as well. It was quite a surprise for us to find out that Inkana Travel operates with 100% professional equipment and well-trained guides. I can recommend Oscar, as he not only provided us with inside information about peruvian culture but was also great company on our 4-day trip. I would recommend the mountain biking tour for people who really like adventures and are not afraid of getting wet or dirty - it can be quite demanding sometimes :)

    Truly adventurous experience
    I had a lot of experience with taking tours around Peru and Bolivia and I need to admit the service of Inkana Travel was so far the most reliable one. During my mountain biking tour I was equipped with truly professional equipment and got clear instructions on how to use it. The guides are professional as well and ful of joy. Actually that is what I liked the most, very relaxed atmosphere and lot of fun. Recommend!

    Very good service
    I made a tour with Inkana Travel and it was better than I expected. The guide was very nice, and had thorough knowledge of the area. About nature and history, and he was very helpful. The tour itself was also very interesting; I would recommend Inkana Travel to everyone.

    Una experiencia increíble
    Viajé al Cuzco con mi esposa hace un mes, decidimos optar por el tour de 2 días a Macchu Picchu Si bien la atracción principal es Macchu Picchu, el primer día se disfruta mucho en Aguas Calientes. Las artesanías, sus antiguas calles y su pan artesanal, esconden historias increíbles. Agradezco al guía que nos dio una mano cuando a mi esposa le dio soroche con una receta ancestral, felizmente, no pasó a mayores, es algo común. Al segundo día fuimos a la ciudadela, y fue realmente increíble, la energía de Macchu Picchu no se puede describir con palabras. Les recomiendo a todos tomar el tour de 2 días a Mucchu Picchu pues así se disfruta mejor, 1 día es muy poco para tanta maravilla. Inkana se ocupó de todo, incluso de la visita guiada, simplemente mi esposa y yo solo disfrutamos de la ciudadela y sus paisajes. Regresaré al Cuzco con mis hijos pronto, e iré con Inkana nuevamente que me salvó de varios apuros en el viaje.
