    1. DAY 1 Airport transfer - Cusco City Tour and Nearby Ruins

      Pick up from the airport and transfer to your hotel in Cusco (altitude: 3400 m / 11152 ft). To better adjust to the altitude, we recommend drinking lots of water, eat light and walk slowly on your first day.

      City Tour of Cusco and nearby ruins:

      We will meet you at your hotel and begin your excursion in the city of Cusco. We will make a first stop at the Cathedral of Cusco, part of our colonial legacy considered of high importance amongst the Catholic population in the present. Then we will continue with Koricancha (or Temple of the Sun), the most important sacred Inca place within the city, which sheltered all Gods and Goddesses brought by the nations that integrated the Empire centuries ago. After a short drive, we will be at the formidable archaeological complex of Sacsayhuaman, a magnificent stonework with finely cut polygonal blocks; a little further we will stop at the archaeological sites of Qenqo, Pucapucara, and Tambomachay, all part of the limits of the city in the old days, what nowadays we would call Customs checkpoint! (duration: 4 hours). After our excursion, we will take you back to your hotel.

      Evening free.

We will travel towards the Ollantaytambo train station and board the Expedition train (tourist class – please note that you can request an upgrade to the Vistadome train, a more panoramic train that also includes snacks on board).

      Upon arrival in Aguas Calientes town, you will take a 30-minute bus ride up to the Citadel of Machu Picchu (altitude: 2350m/7708ft) and will explore the great ”Lost City of the Incas” together with your guide (duration: 2–2 ½ hours).

    • This Machu Picchu One Day Package is available every day of the year.
    • Acclimatization: we strongly recommend you to drink coca leaf tea, rest for at least 3 hours upon arrival at your hotel, and eat little as digesting food might be a bit slow during your first day in order to better acclimate to the altitude.
    • Weather: the rainy season starts in mid-October and lasts through mid-April in the Andes and jungle, being January and February the heaviest months of rain. Therefore, the best time of the year to visit Machu Picchu is from mid-April to mid-October.

Third, there is the Sacred Valley premium train category. And finally, the Hiram Bingham, a luxury train inspired in the 1920 Pullman cars.
