Brief 2-Day Machu Picchu Tour Itinerary

DAY 1: Explore Sacred Valley and Journey to Machupicchu Pueblo
  • Visit the Inca site of Pisac and explore the Colonial Pisac.
  • Discover the Incan ruins of Ollantaytambo.
DAY 2: Machu Picchu Exploration (Afternoon) and Return to Cusco
  • Morning guided tour: "2 hours of walking and capturing the essence of the Inca citadel."
  • Afternoon departure by train back to Cusco.

Day 1: Sacred Valley of the Incas (Pisac – Ollantaytambo – Aguas Calientes)

At around 8:30 in the morning, we will meet you at the hotel, and together we will embark on a bus journey into the Sacred Valley. Our first destination is Pisac, the initial archaeological site in the Sacred Valley. Following our exploration of this site, we proceed to Urubamba for lunch and then continue our journey to Ollantaytambo.

After exploring Ollantaytambo, we will stay there to catch the train to Machu Picchu. Upon your arrival, a representative holding a sign with your name will be waiting for you, escorting you to your accommodation (the place where you are staying). 

Day 2: Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Cusco

Early in the morning, we commence our walk at 4:30 am to reach Machu Picchu just as the sun rises. It's important to note that Machu Picchu opens at 6:00 am. Once the control point is open, the guide will lead you to the upper part of the city for photo opportunities. Subsequently, you will be guided through the entire Machu Picchu site for approximately 2 hours, followed by free time for independent exploration. After fully enjoying Machu Picchu, you will descend to Aguas Calientes to catch the train back to Ollantaytambo, and then the bus will take you back to Cusco.
