Machu Picchu Tour by Train Day 1: Cusco – Ollantaytambo – Wiñaywayna – Machu Picchu Tour – Aguas Calientes

On the morning of your Machu Picchu tour you will be picked up early from your hotel in Cusco or Ollantaytambo, and you and your guide will be transported to Ollantaytambo train station by private vehicle.

Here you will catch the train to Aguas Calientes. The journey by train is stunning; changing from highlands to cloud forests along the way.

Once you arrive in Aguas Calientes, you will take the bus to Machu Picchu for a three hour Machu Picchu tour. Your guide will give you a detailed tour on the culture and history of the city. You will visit the main temple, the Temple of the Condor, Inca king palace, the stone quarry and the sun observatory.

After your Machu Picchu tour you will have some time to be at the site or climb to  Huayna Picchu mountain if you have elected to do this extra hike after your tour of Machu Picchu.

The ticket to climb Huayna Picchu mountain is not included in the price of your Machu Picchu Tour.

In the afternoon you will take the bus down to the station at Aguas Calientes, where you will catch the train back to  either Ollantaytambo or to Poroy. You will then be driven from the train station back to Cusco in a private vehicle and we will drop you off at your hotel!
