Machu Travel Peru staff will be waiting for you at Cusco International Airport to drive you to your previously selected hotel.
We recommend you take some time to rest to get acclimatized to the altitude of the city of Cusco (its elevation is around 3,400m or 11,200ft above sea level). We also suggest you drink coca tea, minimize physical activities, eat lightly and drink lots of water to avoid altitude sickness.
In the afternoon, our city tour of Cusco will start between 13:00hrs and 13:20hrs. First, we will visit the Cathedral of Cusco located on the Plaza de Armas.
Then, our tour continues to the Qorikancha (“The Temple of the Sun”) as well as to several other impressive archeological sites such as Sacsaywaman, Qenqo, Pukapukara and Tambomachay.
Our tour will finish at the main square. At this time, you may like to enjoy a nice dinner in one of the many nearby restaurants or, if you prefer, you can enjoy the city’s nightlife.
Overnight in Cusco.
Meals included: none.
Early in the morning, our staff will pick you up and transfer you to either Ollantaytambo or Poroy Train Station (depending on your train ticket) where you will board a train to Aguas Calientes (the nearest town to Machu Picchu).
When you arrive to Aguas Calientes, our Machu Travel Peru staff will be there to welcome you. They will take you to the bus station where you will board a bus to Machu Picchu. The bus ride takes around 25 minutes and follows a winding slope with nice views up the mountain.
Once we arrive to Machu Picchu, our two hour, private guided tour of the sacred Incan citadel will begin.
We will explore the mysteries and magic of the sacred Incan citadel of Machu Picchu by visiting the Main Plaza, the Circular Tower, the Sacred Sundial, the Royal Quarters, the Temple of Three Windows and various cemeteries.
Upon the conclusion of the tour, we will have lunch in a cozy restaurant.
You will then return to the city of Cusco by train. When you arrive to the train station, our staff will be waiting to escort you to your hotel in Cusco.
