Once you arrive, our experienced guide will take you on a guided tour of the citadel for approximately 2.5 hours, sharing fascinating information about the history and significance of this UNESCO World Heritage site. After the guided tour, you’ll have free time to explore Machu Picchu on your own, take photos, and immerse yourself in the stunning surroundings.
For those seeking an additional challenge and incredible views, you can purchase extra tickets to climb Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain. These tickets are limited and should be bought in advance.
After you visit Machu Picchu, you’ll return to Aguas Calientes by bus. Once in town, you’ll have time to explore and have lunch (not included). Then, you’ll take the train back to Ollantaytambo, which takes about 1.5 hours. From there, our transfer will take you back to Cusco by car, which is an additional 2 hours.
