Book this tour and explore Machu Picchu in one day. The tour begins when our driver picks you up from your Cusco hotel early in the morning and drives you to the train station in Ollantaytambo. The drive takes one and a half hours by car.

Hop into a VISTADOME train and travel to Aguas Calientes or Machu Picchu Pueblo. Enjoy beautiful sceneries along the way during this 1 hour and 45 minute long train ride. A representative from Kantu will then take you from the train station to Machu Picchu. This part of the trip involves taking a bus to the Inca citadel and travelling for around 30 minutes.

Enjoy a 2-hour private guided tour of Machu Picchu and visit some of the most important places of the Inca citadel. You have some free time to explore the monument on your own after that. Take the bus to Aguas Calientes after the tour is over. From there, a VISTADOME train will take you back to Ollantaytambo. Our representative will drive you to your hotel in Cusco from the station.

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. Find more information here.

  • 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 many days do you need in 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.

  • Do they speak English in Peru?

    Spanish is the most-spoken European language in Peru, alongside several local languages like Quechan and Aymara. Those involved in the tourism industry and those in popular destinations such as Lima and Cusco will speak some English, while guides leading tours for English-speaking travelers will have a good hold of the language. However, knowing a few words of Spanish is always useful.

  • What is considered rude in Peru? What cultural notions should I be aware of?

    Personal contact is an important part of Peruvian culture. Not only do Peruvians tend to stand closer to each other than you might at home, but physical contact (especially on one’s arms and back) is also common. You should avoid the desire to step away, as this is considered offensive. Greetings are important, with handshakes along with a few words of greeting being common. Give the elderly your respect if you are young and leave your seat on public transportation for them.
