1 Day train tour to machu picchu

If your trip is time-limited then we highly recommend the 1 day train tour to Machu Picchu. Board the train to Aguas Calientes (where Machu Picchu is based) and along the way, you will be passing through spectacular mountain views, various Inca sites, Cusco’s main rivers, and the Andean villages. The main highlight of the day will be entering and exploring the archeological site of Machu Picchu, hidden at the top of the mountain surrounded by forest of clouds. Be sure to take your camera to capture every moment of your trip for 1 Day train tour to machu picchu!

The other alternative for a more comfortable trip, we would recommend is the two day tour giving you more time and flexibility to sightsee Machu Picchu and its town.

1 Day Train Tour
Day 1.- Cusco to Machu Picchu & back to Cusco
Day 1.- Cusco to Machu Picchu & back to Cusco
We will depart Cusco early (depending on the train schedule between 4 to 5am) travelling 2 hours by bus to Ollantaytambo and then board the train to the town of Aguas Calientes. To get to Aguas Calientes from Cusco is 4 hours. Once we arrive to Aguas Calientes, we will make our way to the bus to the citadel, Machu Picchu. Our guide will provide a guided tour of approximately 2 hours and from there you have the rest of the time to explore this extraordinary site. You will be returning to Cusco by train leaving about 2:30 pm followed then by bus and arriving at Cusco approx. 7pm.
