    We explore the famous historical sanctuary of Machu Picchu, one of the most impressive architectural expressions of the Inca civilization. We leave the hotel towards the train station in Ollantaytambo, where we take the train to the town of Aguas Calientes to ascend to Machu Picchu by bus. We explore this magical place for approximately three hours. This version does not include the hike to Puerta del Sol or Inti Punku. Once we’ve visited the sanctuary, we leave Machu Picchu and head towards the station to take the train back.

    *This exploration combines Explora services with third-party services, meaning it must be confirmed with our booking team at least 50 days before the visit. It has an additional cost of USD $400 for adults and USD $350 for children (up to 11 years). The exploration to Machu Picchu is provided through the rail company Perú Rail in the “Vistadome” or “Expedition” modality, depending on availability. The entrance to Machu Picchu must be at 11am.
