Overview
UNESCO–listed Machu Picchu ranks among the world’s most famous archaeological sites, with an Incan history dating back to the 15th century—but exploring without knowledge of its layout means missing out on key details. On this private guided tour with round-trip travel from Aguas Calientes, discover sites including the Royal Tomb, the Sacred Plaza, and the Sun Gate, and hear how the Incans put the sites to use.
What to Expect
Choose the departure time to suit your schedule—between early-morning and mid-afternoon—and meet your private guide at the public bus stop in Aguas Calientes. Then, hop aboard your bus and take the short journey up the hillside to the UNESCO World Heritage–listed site of Machu Picchu.

Enjoy sweeping views along the Urubamba River and its canyon, then head inside to explore the archaeological site of Machu Picchu on foot. With your private guide to lead the way, admire the ceremonial shrines and terraced hills, and gain insight into the site’s rich Incan history.

Discover key features such as the Main Temple, the Royal Tomb, and the Sacred Plaza, and hear how the locations would have been used by the Incans themselves. As you explore the site, capture fine views of the Sun Gate and Temple of the Sun on camera.

When your time in Machu Picchu comes to an end, return by public bus to Aguas Calientes to conclude your tour.
