Early in the morning you will be transferred to the train station to take the Expedition train (can be upgraded to the Vistadome or Hiram Bingham train) to Aguas Calientes. From there you will be transferred to the bus station to drive up the steep mountain to the famous town of Machu Picchu, also known as, the Lost City of the Incas.
You will have a 2-3 hour excursion of Machu Picchu. You will have some time to explore the ruins by yourselves before or after the official tour.
Machu Picchu is a magical, mysterious place that for nearly a century has intrigued archaeologists and visitors alike. Perched atop a steep, emerald green peak 8,000 feet high in the Andes in southern Peru, it is reachable only by a long road that zigzags up the slope from the roaring Urubamba river, or alternatively, by hiking for days along the challenging Inca Trail. Visitors to Machu Picchu will see well-preserved ruins hidden among the majestic Andes: palaces, baths, temples, tombs, sundials and farming terraces, along with llamas that roam among hundreds of gray granite houses.
In the late afternoon you will return to Cusco on the Expedition train.
