And finally Aguas Calientes station, 1-½ kilometres below Machu Picchu.

After a short briefing, explaining about your full day tour inclusions & timings you will be introduced to your expert guide for the rest of the day.

Your guide will walk with you for about 5 min to catch a bus, which takes 30 minutes to reach Machu Picchu (buses depart every 10 minutes and the first bus departs 05:30). Please note that our local guide speaks perfect English, so do not hesitate to ask him/her any question about your arrangements in the area, as they are there to help you having a unique Machu Picchu experience.
