Best Machu Picchu tour package for the traveler on a tight timeframe.

This 2 days 1-night tour sees you depart Cusco in the morning towards Ollantaytambo Peru before moving towards Hidroelectrica to start the gorgeous scenic trek along the road to Machu Picchu.

You’ll spend the evening in Aguas Calientes to relax, take in the town and get a good night’s rest.

Most will wake up around 4 am to begin the hike up the 1600+ stairs before reaching the citadel just before, or just at sunrise. The option to take a bus to the entrance of Machu Picchu is also available.
