To avoid large lines and crowds we highly suggest you have a very early breakfast (5:00 am) at your hotel before taking the earliest bus to Machu Picchu. We recommend everyone to try and be the first ones in line because it fills up incredibly quickly. Enjoy the first view of Machu Picchu and the sunrise (depending on the weather). Your tour leader will guide you throughout this magnificent site for about 3 hours. Afterward, you will have your own free time to explore this citadel and take numerous photos.
If you book well in advance and have a Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain ticket, your tour leader will take you to the main entrance where you can explore these sites on your own. Not everyone explores these sites, if interested be sure to mention this when you book your trip. If you choose to not purchase these extra sites, the Inca Bridge or Sun gate are free options located within Machu Picchu. Be sure to return to Aguas Calientes on time to board your train. Your tour leader will specify the time after your guided tour. The train ride back to Ollantaytambo is approximately 2 hours followed by a 2-hour drive to Cusco. We will drop you off at your respective hotels. This concludes the end of your adventure.
