HIGHLIGHTS

  • Participate in a weaving demonstration in Chinchero
Join us on this guided, 3-day trip to Machu Picchu and learn more about this Inca citadel as well as Inca culture and civilization from your tour guide. This citadel in the clouds has an aura of mystery surrounding it. Although it had been abandoned just 100 years before the arrival of Spanish invaders, they never found it.

It was an early 20th century explorer named Hiram Bingham who finally rediscovered it. A hidden city protected by mountains, Machu Picchu is now among the New Seven Wonders of the World. Take the Vistadome train from Ollantaytambo Station to Aguas Calientes to reach this heritage site.

Participate in a guided tour of the monument before heading out to explore it on your own. See weavers at work in Chinchero. Learn more about how they transform alpaca and sheep wool into fine textiles with an amazing variety of color.

Enjoy our drop off service to Cusco Airport, from where you will catch your flight to the next destination.

I would recommend 100% the full day tour with vistadome train
This was by far the best tour we made before heading out to Peru. The trip included getting picked up from Airbnb and dropped off at the Vistadome train station. Then from the train station to the bus up to Machu Picchu. There... Read more

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • What is the best month to visit Peru? Can I visit Peru during the off-season?

    The best time to visit Peru is between the months of May and September. Corresponding with the dry season, temperatures in the country at this time hover between 16°C to 22°C. But more importantly, traveling to Peru during this time means that there is little fear of getting caught in the country’s torrential monsoon. Another less popular but still good time to visit Peru is between October and December. A shoulder period between dry and monsoon seasons, the climate during this time of year is generally fine, although skies are cloudier and you might have to dodge the odd shower. The wettest months are January and February. It is still possible to visit destinations such as Lake Titicaca during the rainy season, but the Inca Trail is closed for travelers.

  • Is Peru expensive to visit? How do the ATMs work?

    Peru is not expensive for travelers and we recommend it as a top pick for visitors on a budget. Most travelers can get by on USD 30 to USD 40 per day, including transport, accommodation, and food. Tackling the Inca Trail and exploring Machu Picchu are must-do attractions but also relatively costly. ATMs are the quickest way to withdraw neuvos soles, as the country’s currency is called, on the road and visa cards are easily accepted. Many ATMs have an English language option, too. They can be found in some airports, inside banks, and as stand-alone units in major towns and cities. If you are looking for other destinations to visit on a budget, find more information here.

  • How long would I need to visit Peru?

    Given its wealth of attractions, there are many reasons why you should consider Peru trips that last between ten days and two weeks. This will give you enough time to see top-rated sites, such as Manu National Park, while also discovering the country’s history and culture in more far-flung and as-yet-unknown destinations. You can still take in a number of attractions even if you can only spare one week in Peru, however, the time constraint would mean that you will have to limit your exploration to a destination or two. For a more detailed rundown, check out our travel guide on how many days to spend in Peru.
