The tour begins with pickup from your hotel in Cusco at 04:00. We will head by vehicle to the Ollantaytambo train station.

Afterwards, you’ll have free time to take photos and explore the citadel before returning half an hour before the train leaves Aguas Calientes station. We will return to Ollantaytambo by train and then by vehicle to the historic center of Cusco or to your hotel.

Note: Climbing any mountain is not allowed, including Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu, since the visit takes place in the second shift, which does not allow climbing the mountains.
