We will pick you up from the hotel at 8:00 am to bring you on this unforgettable Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu Tour by Train. First we will stop at the Cristo Blanco lookout to take in amazing views of Cusco. Then we will continue toward the Cochahuasi Animal Sanctuary, a shelter for rescued animals–some of which will be reintroduced to their native ecosystems after their rehabilitation. Here you will have the chance to see Andean camels such as the Llamas, Alpacas, Guanacos, and Vicunas. We will also see Pumas, the famous Andean Condor and the spectacle bear.
From there, we will stop at the Inca archaeological site of Pisaq and the Inkarry Museum of Calca, before enjoying a delicious buffet lunch in Urubamba. Then we will continue on for another half hour toward the beautiful Incan city of Ollantaytambo where we will explore Ollantaytambo ruins and learn about the Incan civilization. We will also relax and have dinner here.
In the evening, we will take the 8:00 pm train to Aguas Calientes where we will arrive 2 hours later and spend the night.
Today we’ll get an early start at 4:30 am to catch the bus to Machu Picchu. We made need to wait an hour or so of before we get bus tickets, but the ride itself is just 30 minutes long.
Once we arrive to Machu Picchu, we will take a 2-hour guided tour. After the tour, our guide will give you your train tickets and lead you to the access point to the Wayna Picchu mountain for a 2-3.5 hour climb.
Finally, we’ll take a 2-hour train ride to Ollantaytambo followed by a 2-hour bus ride in order to arrive back in Cusco around 8:00 pm. This concludes our Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu Tour by Train.
