Full description
The tour begins with pickup from your hotel between 4:00 - 4:30 AM. You'll travel in a private vehicle until you reach Ollantaytambo. From there, you will take the Peru Rail Expedition Train (timetables for this will vary).  Arrival in Aguas Calientes will be around 7:40 AM. Your guide will be waiting for you and you will board a bus (included in the price of the tour). At Machu Picchu, a 3-hour guided tour will help you to develop your understanding of the history of the Inca and this place. Your guide will also help you to take the best photos to remember your trip. Around 11:00 AM it will be time for lunch. Then, head to the thermal baths and relax. The train back towards Cusco will depart around 6:20 PM (again, this may also be subject to change). In Ollantaytambo, the driver will be waiting for you and you'll then go back towards Cusco, likely arriving back at your hotel around 10:00 PM.
