Bus to Ollantaytambo and train to Machu Picchu in only one service

Machu Picchu is one of the most incredible destinations in the world, but reaching the Inca city is not so simple. It all starts with the reservation of admission tickets to Machu Picchu and train tickets, in advance, all other reservations (hotels, guides, other tours) will depend on your date of entry to Machu Picchu. Once in Cusco, you will have to board a bus that will take you to the train station in Ollantaytambo and then the train to Aguas Calientes; Not to organize your itinerary well can lose valuable time, instead of enjoying it in the Inca city of Machu Picchu. If you do not want to waste time looking for the bus to Ollantaytambo and the train to Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu village) separately; Know that you can hire all this in one service. Neither would like to do this with trouble or worry about not finding a return train.

Advice from people who have been there

Machu Picchu

Gerard MBy: Gerard M

“Definitely deserves the title of marvel“

“There is no camera or image that can capture all the majesty of this place. I suggest going up as early as possible. It's an hour's walk from the village to the entrance to the national park, but once there, you'll know it was worth it. The train ride is wonderful, but the Inca city is indescribably definitely worth the world title of wonder.“
