Tour Details

Guiding Peru’s two-day Machu Picchu Train Tour takes you on one of the most incredible train journeys in the world. The Peru rail line follows the route of the Urubamba River. Along the way, through the cloud forest that surrounds Machu Picchu, you will enjoy the beautiful scenery of the high Andes as you tour the Sacred Valley. On arrival, our guide will lead you to your hotel, leaving you with free time to explore and shop, prior to getting a good night’s sleep for the next day’s early rise and guided tour of Machu Picchu.

DAY 1: CUSCO TO AGUAS CALIENTES:

  • Meals: Box lunch and snacks
  • Accommodations: Deluxe lodging, Aguas Calientes

We will pick you up from your Cusco hotel at 9am and travel by van to the village of Ollantaytambo for an extended Sacred Valley tour. Your first stop, the Awanacancha Alpaca Farm. Here, you will see the traditional animals of the Incas: llamas, alpacas, viñuna, and guanaco. Following, we will visit the famous Pisaq Market, where women come down from the Andean villages to sell their textiles and vegetables. Next, your guide will take you to the most impressive spots of the Pisaq Incan Ruins. After your included lunch, we will drive to Ollantaytambo where prior to boarding the tourist expedition train to Aguas Calientes, you will have time to shop and enjoy a drink in one of the many Ollantaytambo cafes. With beautiful scenery throughout the route, the train journey itself is a wonderful experience, descending into the Cloud Forest, where you will see orchids, bromeliads, many glaciers and snow-capped peaks, lush green valleys and Incan farming terraces on both sides of the valley. Following the course of the Urubamba River down into the Sacred Valley, you’ll arrive in Aguas Calientes where our guide will lead you directly to your boutique hotel and brief you about your next day in Machu Picchu. You will have the late afternoon on your own, allowing you time to visit the Machu Picchu museum and orchid exhibition which is a 35 minute walk outside of the village or you may choose to relax in the hot springs that the village is named after.

DAY 2: Aguas Calientes to Machu Picchu to Cusco:

  • Meals: Breakfast and deluxe snack bag

After an early breakfast, we begin the tour to Machu Picchu. Your guide will insure you arrive at the ruins as soon as they open, to catch the magical mists on the ruins as the sun rises. We will start along the Inca trail that ends in Machu Picchu, one of the flat stones on the edge of cliffs in the highland jungle, that is well known as the Inca Bridge Trail.  This is a fascinating walk where few people go and will take us about 35 minutes round trip. It is the best beginning we can offer for a tour around this magical complex. After the Inca Bridge, you will relax with at the best view point of the Citadel and our guide will start explaining the mystery of Machu Picchu. Following his discussion, your guide will lead you on a tour of the total complex that will be for 2-3 hours. Following the guided tour you you will be provided a light box snack and have plenty of free time to explore Machu Picchu on your own or take the optional Huayna Picchu or  Machu Picchu Mountain climb.
