This is a great option for those that would love to see much more of Machu Picchu complex.
Nowadays the limited number of tourists allowed to visit the Inca citadel is being reduced to minimize the impact to the fable Inca city. Therefore, the entrance ticket is only valid for only one use. If you would like to see much more of the various detours, then you need another extra entrance ticket. Scenic Peru strongly recommend to see the rest of the complex for the next day.
There are two options for the second day, one if to climb to the challenging Huaynapicchu mountains to appreciate those amazing constructions in such rugged and terrific little terrain.
The other option for the 2nd day is to do a nice hike to the Sungate “Intipunku” or/and to the Inca bridge, those hikes are less strenuous and to enjoy more of the spectaculars views of the surroundings.
We will pick you up by 4am in the morning from Cusco, and with the Van to travel for 1.40 hours to Ollantaytambo train station which is located in the sacred valley. There you´ll board the train that will take about 1.40 minutes’ train ride along the gorgeous Urubamba river and within the jungle.
*There is an option that after the sacred valley tour you may stay in a hotel in Ollantaytambo town, so next day you won’t need to get up so early to catch your train to Machupicchu, we can fix you all that.
Once you get the final train stop, one of our representative will receive you and take you to the shuttle bus that will take you up to the fable Inca citadel Machu Picchu, there you will have a complete tour seeing all the most important sites and to have all the best picture you desire.
Later after the tour, you will take the bus down to the town “Aguas Calientes” and to take your train back to Ollantaytambo and there the Van back to Cusco. You might be arriving back in Cusco in the evening.
