After early breakfast at your hotel, you will take a bus with our Guide to the ruins of machupicchu which only takes 30 minutes and departs every 10 minutes. Or if you don t want to take the bus but prefer to hike along the Inca trail, just let your guide know so that he can show you the Inca trail to Machupicchu, which takes about 1h 20 minutes.

In Machupicchu you will meet your group and have a 2 hours guided tour. Then you will have extra time to explore the ruins by yourself. If on the other hand you want to see Huaynapicchu, you can climb it or you can go to the most famous spot of Machupicchu. The sun gate is 1 hour climb, if you simply want to get postcard pictures of the ruins. We encourage all the travelers to make the most of their time in this place. Then you can take the bus to return to Aguas Calientes, or carry on with your walking through those famous Inca steps.
