2-Day Private Tour to Machu Picchu from Cusco
  • 2-Day Private Tour to Machu Picchu from Cusco

    The Machu Picchu train tour is a perfect choice for those who are looking to travel in a old fashion manner and visit the ancient citadel in a more leisurely fashion than trekkers. 

    There are two options to get on the Machu Picchu train tour, being the first a departing from Ollantaytambo or the second Poroy station in Cusco (depending on the availability) and takes you through one of the most incredible train odyssey in the world reaching the magnificent Inca site of Machu Picchu.


    Day 1: Cusco to Aguas Calientes (Machupicchu Town)

    Stop At: Hot Springs (Aguas Calientes), Signposted from main square, Aguas Calientes, Machu Picchu Peru
    The Machu Picchu train tour, will begin by collecting you up at 8:00am (to be confirmed) from your hotel within the city center and take you to the train station. Often. the train leaves at 11:30 am (time may change depending on availability and changes to timetable).

    After a 3.5-hour journey of majestic views of the Sacred Valley you arrive to Aguas Calientes (Hot Springs Town) where you will spend the night. Aguas Calientes is a town that has grew lately due its proximity to Machu Picchu and it has cafes, restaurants to choose from. The surroundings of this town are in the middle of a deep and green valley crossed by a river. If you decide to try the local natural hot springs can do so as you will not visit Machu Picchu until the following day.

    We also suggest to do the following in Aguas Calientes: Visit the Machu Picchu 'Manuel Chávez Ballón' museum and orchid exhibition. This is open from 9am to 4.30pm, and is a 35 minute walk down the road from Aguas Calientes to Puente Ruinas. It is a very illustrative museum that gives you an interesting introduction to Machu Picchu.

      Fantastic trip. Everything went exactly as scheduled. Our guide, Eugenia, was great. The hotel we stayed at was unbelievably wonderful.It's worth a trip back to Peru just to stay there. Machu Picchu was incredible.

      We had a wonderful, informative, gorgeous, and every other superlative I can use, private guided tour of Machu Picchu. Our guide Edson, from Valencia Travel Cusco was truly a cut above all other guides. Being a native Quechua from Cusco, he gave us a tour from the heart and the mind.

      This was a well organised tour and we would thoroughly recommend it. Both the pick up and transfer services in Cusco and the Machu Picchu guide were outstanding. A great way to see Machu Picchu if you are short on time and want the highlights.

      Exceptional tour. The staff went above and beyond to ensure that everything went well. I could not imagine a better experience. I don't normally write reviews, but this tour demands a review because the service that came with it exceeded that of any tour that I have ever gone on. I highly advise you to book this tour if you are looking at going.

      Guide was sweet, knowledgeable, and very friendly. Hotel was busy but great. And Los Andes restaurant in Aguas Calientes was great. The shopping and vendors was a little much. We were overwhelmed. Train was hot but everything was included which I didn't expect. I was so pleased.all in all.
