This program is one of the best ways to fully take advantage of your trip by exploring both the main ruin site and Machu Picchu Mountain, the southern peak that the site is named after. This 2 day tour allows you to explore every part of the Sanctuary of Machu Picchu at your leisure without losing any time in Aguas Calientes. Our experienced guides take you to the less-traveled sites around Aguas Calientes (the nearest town to Machu Picchu) and Machu Picchu, the Wonder of the World. We take care of all the details, including your accommodations, train tickets and transfers.
