About this activity
Machu Picchu Day Trip from Cuzco depart from Cuzco in the morning, with pickup from your hotel and a transfer from the city center to your chosen train station. Your departure location and travel experience will depend on the seating option you’ve selected (see the Itinerary below). Then enjoy a scenic, 2-hour train ride, offering stunning views of the mountainous terrain that makes up the area near Machu Picchu. Arrive in Aguas Calientes town, the small village located at the base of this famous Inca site, and board a bus for the short ride to this sacred citadel. Completed around 1450, when the Inca Empire was at the peak of its power and influence, the site was left vacant within 100 years of its creation, thanks to the conquest of the Inca people by the Spanish. Though the site today remains abandoned, many believe Machu Picchu to be a key center of spiritual energy. Follow your guide through the main streets of this marvel of ancient engineering. Learn about the site’s history and design as you meander through its town square, key religious sites, elaborate network of agricultural terraces and intricately-designed stone staircases. After completing your guided tour, you’ll have time to explore on your own, taking some time for photos and to absorb the mystic energy of this one of a kind site. After spending a few hours at the site, you’ll return by bus to the train station in Aguas Calientes town and then to your chosen train for the trip back to Cuzco.
