Visit the ancient Incan city of Machu Picchu, one of the most spectacular sites in the world, on this day trip from Cusco. Avoid any travel hassles with all transfers organized your behalf, and spend your time soaking in the mystical air of Machu Picchu.
What to Expect
There are few things more spectacular than seeing the ancient Incan city of Machu Picchu rise from the mountains and into the mist of the Amazon jungle.
Take a special day trip out from Cusco to the "Lost City of the Incas" and discover one of the most mystical sites in the world. Begin the day directly at your accommodation in Cusco before sunrise, and arrive safely at the spectacular site of Machu Picchu via a combination of transfers, including a local train and a shuttle bus. Travel through the quaint town of Ollantaytambo, stopping for a snack and a rest, and then journey along the beautiful Urubamba River as the Amazon jungle begins to unfold before your eyes.
Once at Machu Picchu, embark on a guided tour through this special place under the morning sun. Visit the Main Plaza, walk around the Circular Tower, hear the story behind the Sacred Sun Dial, and marvel at the ancient Temple of the Three Windows. After the guided tour, there will be time to explore the site on your own before return to Cusco at night.
