Getting to Machu Picchu
Most tours to Machu Picchu depart Cusco, a short flight from Peru’s capital Lima. Enthusiasts then have the option of signing up for the four-day trek along the famous Inca Trail through the Andes to Machu Picchu, taking a dedicated tour bus to the site or sitting back and relaxing on a train ride up the mountains.
Once at the site, travellers are given an informed commentary about the ruins that provides a more immersive and memorable experience, leaving all who embark on the journey with a better understanding of the sacred city. Accommodation is generally arranged for you in Aguas Calientes, which is the town at the base of the ruins.
Extended tours through Peru that include Machu Picchu are also available for those wishing to extend their visit to one week or longer. These longer tours make the most of Peru’s plethora of unique attractions around Cusco and throughout the Sacred Valley.
