Take this tour and on Day 1 let us take you to the trains station by private van and enjoy the scenrey. In Ollantaytambo you will board the train to Aguas Calientes and spend the night. On Day 2, you will have all the time in the world to explore the Citadel of Machu Picchu to your heart´s content.
For your two day private adventure to Machu Picchu, you may start early in the morning, or in the afternoon and have the morning to yourself. At the time that better fits your schedule, your private driver will pick you up at your hotel in Cusco or the Sacred Valley and take you on a 2 hour drive (if starting from Cusco) to the train station in Ollantaytambo, where you will board the train -Expedition or Vistadome, the choice is yours- that will take you on a 1.5 hour journey to Aguas Calientes, the closest town to the ruins of Machu Picchu. Upon arrival, your private guide will be waiting for you at the train station with a sign and your name on it. Then, your guide will escort you to the hotel you have booked for the night (we will be happy to offer B&B, 3 star, 4 star or 5 star hotel suggestions) and coordinate the tour of the following day.
The next morning, as early as you wish, your guide will pick you up at your hotel and take you to the bus that will take you on a 20 minute drive from the town up to the entrance of the Citadel itself. You have finally reached your destination! You will then have your private guided tour of Machu Picchu, during which you will learn about the temples and buildings, such as the Temple of the Condor or the Temple of the Sun. Afterwards, you will have time to explore Machu Picchu on your own, so you may choose to hike up to the Sun Gate, which affords a spectacular view of the Citadel, or visit the Incan Bridge, one of the ancient entrances to Machu Picchu. Additionally, if you choose, you may add the ticket to visit Wayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Montaña, for a longer but very rewarding hike, but please remember these tickets need to be reserved in advance! Finally, you will take the bus back down to Aguas Calientes, where you will board an afternoon train back to Ollantaytambo train station, where your driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel, after a very intense day full of unforgettable experiences.
