Full Day Machu Picchu


Peru Sightseeing
The Lost City of the Incas
Without any doubt and seen from any angle, Machu Picchu is a city built halfway between the earth and the sky. A place built high where the birds fly. This is why you get a feeling that all its buildings, rocks, monuments and hillside terraces float in space, halfway between humankind and the gods. This shrine on top of the mountain has remained the same after many a sunrise and sunset, rainfall and storm and is one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Without any doubt, Machu Picchu is a place you must visit before you die, a memorial of the Incas, the great people who lived in ancient Peru.


You will be picked up and driven to the station to board the train that will take you to the town of Machu Picchu, formerly called Aguas Calientes. Then, you will be greeted at the Machu Picchu Station by our staff who will lead you to our office. There you will meet your tour guide who will take you to board the bus that will drive you to the entrance of the citadel.

This tour is led by our expert guides who will make sure you will have an unforgettable experience and enjoy what you anticipated in terms of nature, history, photographs, etc. After the tour, you will board the bus back to the town of Aguas Calientes and have free time for lunch. At the time indicated on your ticket, 
members of our staff will assist you to board the train back to Cusco.

You will be picked up at the Cusco Train Station and driven back to your hotel.
