Day 1: Cusco - Poroy/Ollantaytambo - Aguas Calientes

In the night/early morning, we will take a bus to the Ollantaytambo or Poroy (Cusco) train station, where we will board our Expedition-type train to Aguas Calientes, the town closest to Machu Picchu. Upon arriving in Aguas Calientes, your guide will pick you up from the train station to take you to the hotel, where you will have a briefing about the Machu Picchu tour. The rest of the day is free for you to explore Aguas Calientes and visit the hot springs. Overnight in Aguas Calientes.


Day 2: Aguas Calientes - Machu Picchu - Cusco.

We will have two options to ascend to Machu Picchu early in the morning: Take a 20-minute bus ride or walk to the sanctuary for about an hour. The path is steep. In either case, we will enjoy a guided tour of Machu Picchu for 2.5 hours, after which you will have free time to explore the site at your leisure (optional: entrance to Huayna Picchu, US$ 12.50, with prior reservation!). You can also return to Aguas Calientes for shopping, a good lunch, or a bath in the hot springs. In the afternoon, we will descend to Aguas Calientes to take the train that leaves Aguas Calientes at 6:45 PM and will take us back to Ollantaytambo, where we will take the return bus to Cusco. Arrival in Cusco at approximately 10:30 PM.
