    TOUR ITINERARY

    DAY 1Cusco - Poroy Train Station – Aguas Calientes

    Early in the morning at the agreed time, we will pick you up from your hotels and transfer to the Train Station of Poroy. The Train leaves at 8:25 am towards Aguas Calientes, a town close to the Sanctuary of Machu Picchu. The train ride to Machu Picchu is one of the most beautiful journeys that visitors can experience in our country. The trip offers a great natural, so many staggering views of the Andes and a jungle atmosphere after descending to the 2000 meters. After approximately 4 hours, we will have arrived in Aguas Calientes, where our guide will welcome you and take you (on foot, no taxis in this town) to your hotel.

    Approx. 1:30 pm you will enjoy delicious lunch in one of the best restaurants in Aguas Calientes; after you will have free time to relax and explore by your own this small town.

    Aguas Calientes is a town located in the middle of a deep and green valley crossed by a river, and it has a variety of cafes and restaurants. The Tour In Machu Picchu 2 Days has considered you to try the local natural hot springs in Aguas Calientes. So you can feel very relaxed for your next day when visiting Machu Picchu.

    At 7:00 pm, enjoy a delicious dinner at which you receive a briefing with the guide who will be responsible for the tour to Machupicchu’s citadel.

    DAY 2Aguas Calientes - Machu Picchu – Ollantaytambo – Cusco

    In order to enjoy a peaceful atmosphere in Machu Picchu, it is advisable to go there early in the morning; therefore we will leave at 5:30, after breakfast. Our guide will take you to the local bus station to catch the bus that goes up to the ruins of Machu Picchu. The bus ride to the sanctuary of Machu Picchu lasts around 25 minutes, and it follows a steep winding path, offering spectacular views of the surrounding mountains.

    Upon your arrival, our guide will show you the most important sectors of this incredible Inca City: the great Intiwatana (solar clock), the Sun Temple, the urban sector, and the agricultural sector.

    Machu Picchu was long thought to be legendary. Then in 1911, the explorer Hiram Bingham stumbled upon its remains. Machu Picchu stands 2,430 m above sea level, in the middle of a tropical mountain forest, in an extraordinarily beautiful setting. It was probably the most amazing urban creation of the Inca Empire at its height; its giant walls, terraces, and ramps seem as if they have been cut naturally in the continuous rock escarpments. On the eastern slopes of the Andes, the natural setting encompasses the upper Amazon basin with its rich diversity of flora and fauna.

    The guided tour in Machu Picchu will last about 2 hours, and afterward, you will have free time to explore the ruins on your own. If you wish, you might climb the Huayna Picchu Mountain, the huge mountain that appears on the background in every classic picture of Machu Picchu. It takes about one hour or so to get to the top, following very steep stairs, though is a little challenging, at the top, you will be rewarded with one of the most impressive views in your lifetime. Later on, we will take the bus down to Aguas Calientes, where you will have time for lunch and explore the many craft shops in Aguas Calientes. At Aguas Calientes, if you wish, you can go to relax in the thermal baths. The hot springs are located on the village’s upper section; visitors may ask their local guide to get there. Finally, at around 4:00 pm, we take the train back to Cusco’s city, arriving there after nightfall.

    Information Before leaving for the Machu Picchu Tour by Train

    We want to make your trip to Peru as memorable and as easy as possible. In this section, you will find speedy answers to all those questions you had about Machu Picchu Tour 2 Days in one place. Please read the following information carefully – it will help you with any questions about our services.

    Has another question that we haven’t answered here? Drop us a line, and we will get back to you asap!

    Briefing or informative meeting

    All information meetings are held in your hotel at 6:00 p.m., one night before the tour begins. If you cannot attend, you must coordinate another time at the Peru Hike offices. These meetings last approximately 30 to 45 minutes and there you will be given a small duffel bag, in which you’ll put all the belongings you intend to bring on the trek that won’t be in your day pack.

    Payment of Trek Balance (in Cusco)

    The trek has to be paid for in full by at least 7.30 pm two days before departure. For example, if your tour departs on a Wednesday, then you must come to our office before 7.30 pm on Monday.

    It would be much appreciated if you pay the trek balance in cash US dollars or local currency. You can withdraw some money from several ATMs along Avenida Sol (either in US dollars or local Peruvian Soles). You can pay by credit card or PAYPAL online, but you will have to pay an 8% service charge, charged by VISA and PAYPAL. We do not accept bank checks or payment of the balance by traveler’s checks.

    Storing your luggage at our Office.

    Of course! During the travel, your main luggage can be stored at our office(you can organize briefing day or by email) or at your hotel, both free of charge.

    Any equipment that you are not going to need on the trek can be stored safely in your hotel. Nearly every hotel will provide this service. Don’t leave items of value with your bags, put them in the hotel safe and obtain an itemized receipt (In the unlikely case of theft many insurance companies require that you have a copy of the receipt itemizing all the items). Best put items such as credit cards inside a sealed, signed envelope for extra peace of mind.

    Pickups:

    Peru Hike can pick you up from your hotel, as long as it’s in the Historic Center of Cusco. The pickup time will be coordinated with your guide in the briefing. The pickup time may vary between 30 and 45 minutes due to traffic. Cusco is a very old city, therefore, it has many narrow cobbled streets. Some hotels and Airbnbs may be located on streets without access to cars or on long, steep slopes, making it difficult to transport luggage. We strongly recommend that you book accommodation with good access.

    Return to Cusco:

    Returning from Machu Picchu requires quite a bit of logistics, but don’t worry. Everything is included in your tour!

    • In Machu Picchu you’ll board a bus that will take you for 25 minutes to the small city of Aguas Calientes. The buses are boarded according to your arrival.
    • In Aguas Calientes you’ll board a train to Ollantaytambo or Cusco. Your guide will give you the train tickets where the boarding time will be shown. Make sure you’re on the platform 30 minutes early. The train from Aguas Calientes to Ollantaytambo takes 2 hours.
    • Once you arrive at the station, our representative, identified with the Peru Hike clothing, will be waiting to transfer you to Plaza San Francisco, in Cusco. The trip from Ollantaytambo to Plaza San Francisco takes 2 hours.
    • In San Francisco, depending on your hotel’s location, we will take you to a smaller car from our company (Hyundai H1) to transfer you faster to your hotel in Cusco.

    Group tours:

    Group tours are made up of different types of people. Physical conditions and ages can vary. By agreeing to be part of a group tour, you also accept that some people may be faster or slower than you. Therefore, each person can go at their own pace on the route. It may be the case that a group wishes to modify the tour; however, it will be the guide who decides, after consulting with all the participants, if said modifications can be made.

    Strikes and demonstrations:

    Strikes and demonstrations are usually frequent in Peru and this may interrupt some of our tours. Roads can be blocked and train tracks can be taken over. However, we will try to keep your excursion as planned, even if it means leaving the night before the scheduled date. Under these circumstances, tours may also be cancelled. In case of changes or cancellations, all situations will be coordinated with you by our operations department. Your safety is our highest priority and our decisions will be made to protect it.

    Lost objects:

    You’re responsible for your objects during the tour. Please pay attention to where you leave your things and remember to take everything once you leave our trucks, tents, or restaurants.
