Here we will clarify all your doubts before traveling to one of the 7 modern wonders of the World; we will consider several points that you have to take into account for an incredible experience in a 1 day Machu Picchu Tour.
The most recommended thing to do the Machu Picchu 1-day / Full Day tour, is to book it with a reliable travel agency that will take care of the entire itinerary, such as: transfers from your hotel to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu and vice versa, guide in Spanish and English, purchase of the train ticket, purchase of entrance to Machu Picchu, and purchase of the shuttle bus ticket.
MY ADVICE: Book your admission ticket at least 1 month in advance before making your visit to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu since the tickets are limited. In the event that you want to visit Wayna Picchu you must make your reservation with a minimum of 4 months in advance, since the tickets to circuits 1 and 2 sell out faster.
One of the most requested tickets is La Llaqta de Machu Picchu (Circuit 1), this allows us to visit the main part of Machu Picchu, and here you can take the best photographs.
Our trip starts early from the city of Cusco to Ollantaytambo train Station to take the Expedition train, visiting (Peru Rail) or Voyager (Inca Rail), both companies operate the trains to Picchu. You choose whichever you want to travel on; we will have a 1-hour 45 minute train trip to the town of Aguas Calientes.
MY ADVICE: Buy the train two weeks in advance (and choose your schedule well so you don’t have to get up early). Remember to always board 30 minutes before the scheduled train departure time.
Here we can have breakfast before going up to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu (we will have many options, for different tastes).
Then we will take the uphill shuttle bus that will take us to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, the bus station is very close to the train station, there is no way to get lost since they are the only cars that circulate in Aguas Calientes town. The bus leaves every 5 minutes.
We will have a trip of approximately 20 minutes on the shuttle bus.
The bus will drop us off exactly at the entrance to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. Here we will present our entrance tickets.
The visit inside the Inca citadel lasts approximately 2 to 3 hours, we can visit it on our own or hire an expert guide to provide us with more information and an appropriate tour of the Inca city of Machu Picchu.
Remember to take the best pictures and recharge your energies.
Once our tour is over, we will go to the entrance, from where we will board the shuttle bus that will take us back to the town of Aguas Calientes, we will have lunch and then be able to board the train back to Ollantaytambo station and return to Cusco.

We were recommended this company by our neighbor. Ruben/Juan was great with questions and provided a lot of valuable information as I was planning parts on my own instead using a set tour, partially due to wanting to climb one of the optional peaks which you need to book months in advance. We then hit a snag with my wife’s passport and Ruben happily rearranged the tour for us even though we gave last minute notice.
Our tour guide Wagner met us where the bus dropped us of (can be arranged to pick up from your hotel as well), and we spent the next two hours learning a lot about the history of the site and he took us away from the crowds, and accommodated our photos requests. After we hung around and explored on our own until it was time to leave….
FANTASTIC!!! From start to finish! Amazing Andean Adventures was in charge for our entire 8 day trip to Peru. Every detail and pick up was perfect. Every driver and guide was great! Thank you Kivin and Joaquin for finding my camera!
There was one special guide that we will never forget. Dany met us at our hotel in Agnes Calientes and was very patient as our train was late arriving. His knowledge of the history and culture of the Incans made the tour of Machu Picchu come alive! We were fortunate to have Dany for two days, always upbeat, helpful, fun, and competent. The Cusco City Tour was also amazing with the continuing history making us feel like we were actually there in the time of the Inca rule. Magical…
We traveled to Cusco this December with a three day private tour planned with Danny. My mom had done a similar tour with Danny and recommended him/amazing andean adventures to us! Our three day adventure was pretty much perfect; danny was always early to meet us, super friendly, with great english and tons of knowledge to share about the ruins and inca historical sites we visited. He even made the rain clear up so we could get a perfect view of machu picchu after our hike. On day one we went from our hotel to various destinations in sacred valley, which I worked with the company to plan so that we would hit all the spots I wanted to. They were helpful and accommodating in building a highly individualized itinerary…
