What to Expect
Join this full day Cusco Urban Adventure to unearth the mysteries of majestic Machu Picchu without having to hike the trail! Start the day by rising early and enjoying a scenic train tide to the Peruvian town of Aguas Calientes. Transfer to a bus for a brief journey to the much-visited archaeological site of Machu Picchu. 
There’s a reason why this awesome complex is celebrated, loved, and mused over by historians, travellers, stargazers, and mystics – it is simply one of the most astounding places on Earth! Built at the height of the Inca Empire, it is widely believed that this place was built to serve as an estate for the Inca emperor Pachacutec. Learn about the historical background of this impressive site from your guide while you spend the morning walking around the ruins. 

After the tour you will have free time to explore the complex at your own pace. Why not walk to the Sun Gate for sweeping views of the area below or wander the stone path of Inca Bridge? Don’t forget to capture the beauty of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, as there are loads of photo-worthy moments waiting around every corner!

By 16:00, it’s time to make the return journey back to the bright lights of Cusco. Hop on the train and ride back to the city, away from the magnetic heritage of mighty Machu Picchu – a mesmerizing place that will leave an imprint on your soul.
