Overview
Visit Machu Picchu by train on a full-day trip from Cusco that takes the hassle out of exploring the spectacular Inca site. Pre-booking a tour ensures you’ll have a ticket for the UNESCO World Heritage Site, where daily visitor numbers are capped, and you’ll explore the sprawling site with a guide. When booking, choose from a variety of train options, from budget-friendly to more modern.
What to Expect
Start the day with early morning pickup from select hotels in Cusco and ride to the train station. Train options, which you can select when booking, include Expedition, The Voyager, Vistadome, and the newest 360 Train. The basic Expedition train is upholstered with traditional indigenous fabrics, while The Voyager features plush chairs with tables at each pair of seats.

Traveling in Vistadome, you’ll have glass on all sides and above your head, great for taking in the full scale of the massive peaks. The newest option, the 360 Train, also has panoramic glass and updated, comfortable seats.

On arrival at Machu Picchu, you'll continue to the ruins on a small bus for a 2-hour guided tour that explores ancient stairways, delicate carvings, and sweeping views. Afterward, enjoy some independent time to snap photos or just relax, finishing the day with the beautiful return trip to Cusco.

Incredibly Surreal

I still can't believe I saw Machu Picchu with my own eyes. A life goal actualized! We had just the right amount of time here. We went in the morning and had clear weather. Couldn't ask for a better day!

Loved the trip could have stayed in Machu Picchu a few more hours

This was a wonderful trip with a great guide. My only complaint was that we left Machu Picchu too early and had 2-3 hours in the town of Machu Picchu which wasn't worth it. STAY IN THE AMAZING SITE LONGER!More

Nice climb from Aguas calientes.

Recently I visited Machu Picchu, a trip that was long overdue in my list. I could not get into Machu Picchu early on, so I took the second shift, and could get into the ruins only by 12. Since this was the case, I decided...More

Amazing tour with an awesome guide

Yes, the 4am meet-up time was miserable but it all worked out. The tour takes care of everything which is SUPER helpful since there's a lot of moving parts...trains to catch, busses, etc. My tour guide, Johnny, was amazing. Great English, very knowledgeable, great photographer....More

Great day!

Overall, a great experience! We chose the vistadome option which seemed only ok on the way there but was much lovelier and more luxurious on the way back - not sure why the trains were so different but I do wish we had the nicer...More
