Our private Machu Picchu tour includes roundtrip rail transportation from Cuzco, a choice of fine hotels, an extensive afternoon tour of Machu Picchu and the opportunity for a second sunrise visit – before the day visitors arrive! Enhance your trip to Peru with one of South America’s most inspiring sites, the fabled Lost City of the Inca!
Day 1 - By rail through the Sacred Valley
This morning, our private car and driver will escort you from your hotel in Cuzco or the Sacred Valley to the rail station. Board the famous Vistadome Train for a scenic journey through the fabled Sacred Valley. As you travel along the Urubamba River, the scenery is spectacular… snow-capped Andean peaks, timeless villages and terraced fields that have been cultivated for generations. Arrive in Aguas Calientes and ascend by bus along the winding mountain road to the legendary Lost City of the Inca. Enjoy unhurried exploration through the ruins of Machu Picchu as your personal guide sheds light upon this amazing mountain-top citadel and the ancient civilization that built it. Enjoy lunch at the Sanctuary Lodge and spend a tranquil night in the hotel or resort of your choice. Meals L, D
Day 2 - Machu Picchu and return by rail
We’ve included the bus ticket and entry fee if you would like to make a return morning visit to Machu Picchu to explore at your own pace before the day visitors arrive later by train. This is also a great opportunity to witness the soft early light as it breaks across the mountain peaks to fall upon these ancient stones. But please exercise caution as morning dew can make the paths and stones quite slippery. Later this afternoon, your Machu Picchu trip ends with a return to Cuzco aboard the Vistadome Train. Meals B
