The 2D/1N Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu trip is the best way to visit this area by train, in our opinion. This tour visits the highlights of the beautiful valley beginning in Pisaq and ending in Ollantaytambo. You leave that night from the train station in Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes to spend the evening. We recommend to all our travellers to wake up really early the next morning to catch one of the first buses up to the ruins, they are first come - first serve and begin at 5:30AM - to hopefully see the sunrise over the mountains. Of course this is only if the weather coorperates. By the end of this trip, you will definitely be an expert on the Inca Empire.
Day 1: Cusco - The Sacred Valley tour - Machu Picchu town
At 8am we set off from Cusco heading up and over the highlands towards the Sacred Valley of the Incas. We arrive at Pisac on the Urubamba river and visit the colourful Pisac village market. Here you can bargain for some of the many artisan goodies on offer. You can either stay here haggling for longer or head up to Pisac ruins situated high up overlooking the valley. After an hour exploring this magnificent site we head back down and through the valley until we reach the town of Urubamba. Here we take a traditional lunch before heading on to Ollantaytambo town for our tour of the archeological site which hang, high on the valley walls overlooking the town. Ollantaytambo is the gateway to Machu Picchu, where the road ceases and the route must be continued by train. If you have chosen a private service tour then you will board the afternoon train to Aguas Calientes (3.37pm). If you are with shared group then, due to slower travel times, you will board the later, evening train (7.00pm).
On arrival, our representative will help you find your hotel. Our guide will visit you at your hotel to brief you about the next days events.
You then have the evening free to relax or investigate some of the many activities available.
