We will pick you up at 08:00 am then drive for 1.5 hours to the village of Ollantaytambo, located in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. We will take our train to Aguas Calientes, enjoying the beautiful scenery during the train ride. Upon arrival at Aguas Calientes, we will have free time to explore the little village by ourselves and eat lunch at one of the local restaurants (not included). In the evening, we have dinner with the group and talk about our plans for tomorrow with our guide. We will stay overnight at a hotel in Aguas Calientes.
Early in the morning, we will take the shuttle bus up to the Inca citadell of Machu Picchu, the “Lost City of the Incas“. This complex is considered a jewel of the Inca architecture. It is a complete town with different quarters, squares, alleys, buildings, astronomical observatories and terraces. The city was rediscovered on July 24, 1911 by the US researcher Hiram Bingham. We will learn everything about the Inca civilization and interesting facts about this sacred place. After a guided tour, we will have enough time to explore this magical place by ourselves.
For those who have previously selected to climb Huayna Picchu Mountain or Machu Picchu Mountain, you will do so at your designated time (1st group: 6am to 8am, 2nd group: 9am to 11am).
Later, we will catch the shuttle bus down to the village of Aguas Calientes, and have lunch at a local restaurant. We will take our train back to Ollantaytambo, where our transfer staff will pick us up and take us back to our hotel in Cusco.
