What to expect
  • Your tour begins with an early morning pickup from your Cusco hotel. Traveling in the comfort of a private vehicle, transfer to the train station in Ollantaytambo to board the train or Vistadome panoramic train (if upgrade selected) to Machu Picchu. Marvel at the scenery on the journey, as you wind through the Andes and gaze out over the wild landscapes of the Sacred Valley. On arrival in Aguas Calientes, the town at the foot of Machu Picchu, your private guide will be waiting to meet you. Together, take the final bus up to the mountaintop Machu Picchu, climbing to a dizzying height of 7,970 feet (2,430 meters). Take a moment to savor your first view of Machu Picchu as your guide offers some background information on the fabled Lost City of Incas. Then, enjoy plenty of time to explore, taking in highlights such as the Temple of the Sun, the Sacred Plaza, and the ceremonial baths. Your private tour can be customized to suit your preferences, so you can opt to hike up to the best viewpoints or spend longer exploring the less visited ruins. After your visit, return to Aguas Calientes to enjoy a delicious buffet lunch (included), before boarding the return train to Ollantaytambo. Finally, end your tour with a private transfer back to your Cusco hotel.

    Santuario Historico de Machu Picchu
    Stop: 10 hours - Admission included
    The tour starts with a pickup from your hotel in Cusco at 5:00am and drive to Ollantaytambo train station in our private transport. Enjoy the first views of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. On your arrival to Aguas Calientes, our guide will be waiting for you and board the bus up to Machu Picchu to enjoy an amazing private guided tour of Machu Picchu for about 2 hours then enjoy a delicious buffet lunch. Later board the train back to Ollantaytambo where our private transport will be waiting for you and take you back to your hotel located in Cusco. • Train times may change according the booking time and will be provided according the train company timetable availability. Important note about Machupicchu: The Peruvian Ministry of Culture changes the rules to Visit Machupicchu and split into 2 entrance times. • AM Entrance: from 6 am – 12 pm. • PM Entrance: from 11 am – 17.30 pm. Visitors must leave the site within the time frame stated, and cannot re-enter once visitors have left the site. Visitors and guides who don’t enter and leave within the time frame stated, will be assisted to the exit by the competent authorities! You have been warned. • For the full day tour, we will be visiting into the second schedule (11:00am to 17:30) as the first schedule (6:00 to 12:00) won't be convenient because the visit time could be too short like 2 hours only.

Amazing experience and your guides!
Sep 2021 • Friends
This was a great experience all around. Fredi was a very good organizer and helped us schedule everything we wanted. Michael was a fantastic host for Machu Picchu and was super knowledgeable about the region. He even went above and beyond to help us change the time of our train tickets. Overall a great experience!

Once in a lifetime experience with one of a kind tour guide Miguel
Sep 2021 • Friends
This was my first time in South America and first time seeing one of the 7 wonders of the world. We had Miguel guiding us and he genuinely made the experience. He told us about history, took professional photos and showed us everything we could see at Machu Picchu. From there he brought us back into town and even got us on an earlier train to go back to Cuzco.

Miguel was the MVP of the trip. After spending time with him on this tour I completely understand why everyone knows him and says hi whenever he is around. No better guide to see Machu Picchu with than him!

The tour was an excellent way to get to and from the site, as well as a very informative private tour at the Machu Picchu ruins. My hotel pickup was confirmed the day before and my driver (Jhordy Mendicabal) was on time and provided all the further information and tickets required. It is about a 90 min drive to Ollantaytambo, then a 90 min train ride (I took the Vistadome option which is like premium economy (the Hiram Bingham is more like business class)). At the end of the train ride I was met by a sign holding staff member who guided me to the bus (about a 20 min trip up to Machu Picchu) where I met my private tour guide Victor (took a little bit of finding in the crowds). Victor was extremely knowledgeable and validated my decision to go with a private tour guide - with the ability to ask questions and receive answers directly as more or less a continuous conversation as we moved through the ruins. Victor also had a number of historic photos which brought into perspective what the site looked like when it was rediscovered in the early 1900s. Two hours at the site itself is about right to see all of the ruins without rushing. Once back at Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu town) I had the included buffet lunch at the very nice Ayasqa restaurant where I also killed some time in the comfortable entrance lounge area before heading to the train station (via the shops). The trip home was quite smooth with travel times replicating the outward journey. The trains were right on time there and back (very efficient) and Jhordy my driver was there to meet me at Ollantaytambo and drive me the 90 mins back to Cusco. Special thanks to Jhordy given the amount of driving he had to do to support my trip. Overall an excellent experience.
