Machu Picchu Tour by Train 2D/1N

This Machu Picchu Tour truly gives you the comprehensive Machu Picchu experience! Sometimes Machu Picchu is abbreviated MP – in the case of this trek MP could stand for Maximum Picchu or Mega Picchu! Okay I know that is somewhat corny, but this tour does actually offer the most time spent at Machu Picchu of all our tours!

Overview

Our two-day, one night tour to Machu Picchu begins with one of the most incredible train journeys in the world. Following the route of the Urubamba River all the way to the cloud forest that surrounds Machu Picchu, you enjoy the beautiful scenery of the high Andes throughout the course of the journey. Additionally we will take the luxury Vistadome train instead of the traditional Expedition train.

Then of course there is Machu Picchu!! Machu Picchu is considered a masterpiece of architecture and engineering. Its unique architectural features and landscape contribute to a veil of mystery woven around much of the literature published about the site. The magic and mystery of Machu Picchu is internationally recognized and it has been on the List of World Heritage Sites of UNESCO since 1983 as part of a cultural and ecological site known as the historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu.

We will spend the evening of the first day (after our complete Machu Picchu tour) in the town of Aguas Calientes, which is the “jump off point” for Machu Picchu. We will have dinner at the best restaurant in Aguas Calientes. Your accommodations for the night will be at a very nice hotel.

  • Day 1: Cusco – Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Aguas Calientes
  • Day 2: Machu Picchu – Aguas Calientes – Cusco

Itinerary

Day 1: Cusco – Ollantaytambo – Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Aguas Calientes

We will pick you up bright and early at your hotel and drive to Ollantaytambo. This is where we will catch the Vistadome train to Aguas Calientes

During the trip you will see many glaciers and snow-capped peaks, lush green valleys and Incan farming terraces on both sides of the valley. Upon arrival to Aguas Calientes we will take the bus to Machu Picchu. When we arrive at Machu Picchu we will have a two hour guided tour and you will also have time to explore on your own.

We will then return to Aguas Calientes by bus. You will check in to your hotel room when we arrive. You will have some time to explore the quaint town of Aguas Calientes and also visit the natural hot springs if you would like before dinner (dinner is usually between 7 and 8 pm). Dinner will be at the finest restaurant.

Day 2: Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Cusco

You will have breakfast at your hotel and then we will take a very early bus (5:30 am) along the winding road to Machu Picchu to see the sunrise.

If you have elected to climb Huayna Picchu mountain (the price for this is included in your tour price) we will begin the hike at 7 AM. Your guide will hike the mountain with you. If you are not climbing the mountain you will have free time to spend in Machu Picchu before you return to Aguas Calientes by bus.

Upon arrival in Aguas Calientes you will board the Expedition train to Ollantaytambo. From Ollantaytambo you will travel by private van to Cusco and we will drop you off at your hotel. Arrival time in Cusco depends on the time of your train ticket.
