Important Information

  • Please make sure to bring a valid passport on the day of your excursion. The hotel pick-up time depends on the confirmed departure time of the train, which could be at 4:00 AM or 6:00 AM. We will inform you of the hotel pick-up time a couple of days before the trip departure. Hotel pick-up service is available only for hotels in downtown Cuzco. The guided tour to Machu Picchu will last approximately 3 hours, with free time to enjoy Aguas Calientes before returning to Cuzco. Machu Picchu is regulated by the Peruvian government, so visitors can only stay within the citadel during the guided tour. Please note that, in compliance with regulations, you will not be allowed to re-enter the citadel once you exit. Due to new regulations in the purchase of Machu Picchu tickets, we want to inform you that, in case of cancellation of your reservation, the percentage corresponding to the entrance ticket cannot be refunded.
