Machu Picchu 2 Days by Train

For those short on time or who simply do not want to trek to Machu Picchu these 2 day train packages are the perfect option for you! Email us for full details on all return train times, prices and upgrade options like private rooms etc.

If you do not have time to do the Inca trail, we will cater for four days or any other similar hiking tours to Machu Picchu that you may wish to customize. It doesn’t matter if you either lack of time or are on a tight budget, this would be the best option if you are still interested in exploring the Andes and the luscious green landscape around Aguas Calientes. By choosing this package, you will be in no rush, and have plenty of time to visit the hot springs in the village of Aguas Calientes.

Take the opportunity to explore Putucusi Mountain where few people can go for 1 hour to climb from the village, or instead you can go to Mandor flowers garden and the amazing waterfall there. But most important of all, you will be able to get the ticket for Huayna Picchu Mountain or simply just have relaxing time in one of the new seven wonders of the world – Machu Picchu! Remember, this might be just once in a lifetime experience, so you deserve to enjoy it!

Our amazing tour guides will lead you throughout the ancient city, wonder by wonder – special for your own private group! You will learn about ceremonies, how people lived, and how they connected with the Pacha Mama – or “Mother Earth”. Our local guide will give you inside information passed down so that you will get the real story of what happened here.
