Day 1 Cuzco

Today we will gather in Cuzco, CUS, Peru. During your pre-departure briefing in Cuzco, guests will receive all tickets for the buses, trains, and entry to Machu Picchu. For the majority of this 2-day trip, we will not be accompanied by a guide. Guests will only have a guide for the Machu Picchu tour.

Day 2 Cuzco - Ollantaytambo - Aguas Calientes (102 km)

Today we will transfer by car to Ollantaytambo, CUS and from there journey to Aguas Calientes, CUS by train. Guests may take an optional 1.5-hour tour up to the Mandor Waterfalls. At 6:00pm, the guide will meet us at the hotel for a quick briefing.

Day 3 Aguas Calientes - Machu Picchu - Ollantaytambo - Cuzco (110 km)

We will catch one of the first buses to Machu Picchu so that we may see the early morning light over this amazing place. After a two-hour walking tour, guests will have time to explore on their own. Those who still have energy can climb Huayna Picchu, a mountain in the middle of the ancient town. We will return to Aguas Calientes in the afternoon and from there take a train to Ollantaytambo and then a bus back to Cuzco.

I recommend this tour!

I would definitely recommend booking through TakeTours, especially if you don't speak the native language and aren't too familiar with the area. The tour operator was very good as well. The tour guide was professional and friendly. I am glad that I joined a group tour and met some fun people.
