Machupicchu full day
This is the day you’ve been looking forward to! We pick you up at your hotel early in the morning and drive you to Ollantaytambo Train Station. After leaving Ollantaytambo, your train enters the narrow Vilcanota River canyon. Each side of the steep canyon walls is covered in lush subtropical jungle. Look carefully across the river for the Inca terraces, some of which are still farmed today!
When you arrive in Aguas Calientes, your guide will meet you at the train station, and you will have some free time before taking the shuttle up to Machu Picchu. Your guide will take you on the entire tour, which will last approximately two hours. You will see all of the most important parts of Machu Picchu, such as the Temple of the Sun, the Temple of the Condor, the Temple of Three Windows, the Sun Dial, the Quarry, and the Inca House. You’ll also learn about Machu Picchu’s three sectors: agricultural, residential, and religious.
After you’ve had your fill of the breathtaking views of Machu Picchu, take the bus back down to Aguas Calientes for lunch (not included). Depending on when your train departs, you may also have time to go shopping, sightseeing, or visit a museum or hot springs. Your train will leave in the early afternoon.
The train will return you to Ollantaytambo by following the beautiful Urubamba River. The canyon near Aguas Calientes is narrow, and the river has many beautiful sections of whitewater. If you look up high on the steep canyon wall, you can see Wiay Wayna from the train! When you arrive back in Ollantaytambo, your driver will meet you at the train station exit and drive you back to your Cusco hotel . You should arrive at your hotel by 20.00pm. / REFERENTIAL TIMES
