We'll have an early breakfast before heading off to catch the first bus Machu Picchu Archeological Complex. The bus takes about 25 minutes, after which we'll walk to the Intipunku Sun Gate to see the sun rise over Machu Picchu as we enter the site, descending from the Sun Gate. The guided portion of our visit will take about 2 hours, during which we'll explore the stunning ruins while the guide explains the history, purpose, and significance of the ruins. The tour ends at the famous intihuatana solar clock outside of the Sun Temple. You'll then have free time to explore the ruins independently and take all of the photos you desire.
We'll descend by bus back to the town of Aguas Calientes so that you'll have time for lunch. (This meal is not included in the tour.)
