2 Days / 1 Night Program

Day
1

Cusco-Aguas Calientes

05:45 – 7:00AM

We‘ll pick you up at your hotel or hostel in Cusco at the agreed-upon time, depending on your train schedule, and then depart for the Poroy or Ollantaytambo train station.

10:50AM

We’ll arrive in the small but colorful town of Aguas Calientes (the colloquial name for Machu Picchu Pueblo) at around this time. Our transfer will take us from the train station to our hostel so that we can accommodate ourselves. You will have free time during this day to explore the town on your own, which you can use to perhaps visit the Aguas Calientes Hot Springs, visit the Butterfly Garden, or walk the rainforest trails of Mandor Gardens.

We will spend the night in Aguas Calientes so that in the morning we can leave for the ruins quite early, thus beating the crowds arriving on the day’s first trains.
