Trip to Machu Picchu in the last hour

The organization of last minute vacations to Machu Picchu during the high season, is a horrible ride against time. The adrenaline goes up with rejected emails, very limited train schedules, crowded hotels, plus having to coordinate everything with a precision that would scare an experienced military. The first step is to arrive in Cusco, once here, the 5 hour trip to Machu Picchu starts with 1 or 2 hours by bus to PeruRail station in the Sacred Valley, an hour and a half to Aguas Calientes and then a 30 minute bus ride to the main entrance. Each stage of the trip must be synchronized with the others; but before that, you must buy the Machu Picchu Tickets, since everything will depend on when you want (or can) enter the Inca City.

Maybe you woke up today and said “I want to go to Machu Picchu!”.

Advice from people who have been there

Machu Picchu

Luhana G.By: Luhana G.

“You have to book tickets in advance“

“Going to Machu Picchu was amazing, the place is beautiful, the only bad thing is that we could not climb to Huayna Picchu because the tickets sold out 4 months before, but we managed to get tickets to Machu Picchu. There are a lot of people who attend every day, it's crazy. To climb the mountain are rows, is very tired and you have to walk between many people, but none of that matters at the top. Simply INDESCRIPTIBLE !!.“
