Get to know Machu Picchu, the new wonder of the world!
Machu Picchu is Peru's number 1 tourist attraction and it should definitely be part of your plans when visiting the country of the Incas. Get fascinated by the old ruins of the ancient city, the history of its discovery and the beautiful landscape that surround Machu Picchu.
Depending on how much time you have, there are different ways to get to know Machu Picchu. In case you are short on time, we recommend our 1-Day Machu Picchu tour from Cusco. A lot of time will be spent in cars and trains, but the experience is definitely worth it.
If you can dedicate two days to it, combining Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley is the perfect option. This way, you will learn more about the Inca's history in a chronological way and you can take the train from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes after your Sacred Valley tour. By doing that, you will be able to start the Machu Picchu tour from Aguas Calientes meaning you don't have to spend various hours traveling in the early morning to get there.
Your other option, taking into account that you have various days in Cusco, would be to get to know Machu Picchu as part of a Cusco tour package or a multi-day hike such as the Salkantay trek oder the Inca trail.
