Briefing before the excursion:
Pickup at 3:30 is approximately (depending on your hotel location). We start our drive to Ollantaytambo, where we will take the 6:10 am train to Aguas Calientes, arriving at around 8:50 am after a beautiful journey through the incredible landscapes of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. We leave Aguas Calientes and get the bus to Machu Picchu. The ride will take us around 25 minutes to get to the top of the hill.
The first impression of Machu Picchu is its fantastic location, which mixes very well with the whole nature. Very far away at the back, the Andean mountains and snow peaks. The entire view will take your breath away, that is for sure.
Once in Machu Picchu, your guide will introduce you to the beauty of Machu Picchu, and you will have 2 hours’ guide tour. During this guided tour, you will learn some more about the history and culture of the Inca Empire.
Once the guided tour has finished, you will have time to explore it by yourself until the end of ticket time allows.
