If you are short on time or hiking is just not for you, this tour of the mythical Machu Picchu is the ideal way to see this stunning location, learn of its history, and do some exploring all within a single day. We take the train from Cuzco, through the stunning Peruvian mountains, arriving in the gorgeous Aguas Calientes, home to the world famous Machu Picchu. From the train, we will ride the bus (or take on the thousands of stairs by foot if you are up to the challenge), arriving at the site with the morning sun still fresh in the sky.

For the first part of your Machu Picchu day tour you will be escorted to some of the complex’s most prominent sites by one of our knowledgeable and friendly local guides. You will hear stories of the Inca Empire and its emperor Pachacutec. You will learn of how it is thought such a huge and magnificent structure was built in such a location, and gain insight into interesting theories and beliefs surrounding a variety of Machu Picchu’s structures. The Inca people were thought to have had some weird and wonderful traditions, many of which are shown through their design of such a magical place.

After a tour full of local insight and knowledge, you will be free to roam this vast complex at your own pace. Wander through the rows and patterns of rockwork, searching for little signs of life during the Inca Empire. Climb to the top of Huayna Picchu, or walk to the Sun Gate to get sweeping views of the city below. By four o’clock we will wind up our glorious Machu Picchu day tour and ride the train back to Cuzco, with a whole new world of the magical Machu Picchu consuming the thoughts in our sleepy and content minds.

“I will never forget Urban Adventure's extra effort to make our Machu Picchu tour after our LAN Chile flight was cancelled and we thought we will not get a train ticket on short notice from Cusco to OllantayTambo. Thanks to Theresa Navarro who managed to secure the limited train tickets even though for a fee/penalty. We also enjoyed the commentaries of our tour guide Beto. Very memorable experience in Machu Picchu. Thanks Urban Adventures.”

“On this trip I was the only participant. While everything was executed with a professional manner, it would have been better if a single guide took you through the whole day. If I remember correctly I had 3 guides and 2 drivers in the day.”
