Day 1: Arrival in Cusco     

Cusco is situated 3400 meters (11,200 feet) above sea level

Welcome to Cusco, the historical capital of Peru! Upon arrival, a representative from the Machu Picchu Explorer travel agency will be awaiting you to transfer you to your hotel. Cusco, also known as the "bellybutton of the world" is a charming place. You will be able to get to experience its architectural beauty, its traditional neighborhoods, the beautiful Plaza de Armas (its main square), as well as its various gastronomical delights.
Cusco's main points of interests are the Cathedral, the Temple of the Sun (known as the Qoricancha), the San Blas district and San Pedro market among many others. 
We recommend that you take the first day to rest and become acclimated to the altitude.

Day 2: Aguas Calientes - Machu Picchu - Cusco

Total travel time: 1 hour 40 minutes by train (or 3 hours and 30 minutes from the Poroy station).  Machu Picchu is situated at 2400 meters above sea level (7,900 feet).

This will be an unforgettable day considering you will experience one of the wonders of the modern world, the Incan citadel known as Machu Picchu.
Early in the morning you will board the train (from Poroy/Ollantaytambo station) towards the town of Aguas Calientes, also known as Machu Picchu Town. During your train ride, you will be able to observe the transition from the mountainous region of the Andes, gradually evolving into the Urubamba valley, the warm, humid area corresponding to the mountainous jungle in the Cusco region. Upon arrival to the train station, our professional guide will be waiting for all of you to get on the bus together up to the Inca citadel (20-minute trip). Once in Machu Picchu, you will visit the agricultural area as well as the urban zone and the main temples. The tour will last approximately 2 hours.  Later you will have time to explore the ancient city on your own and take additional pictures.

In the afternoon, we will return to Cusco on a comfortable train.
