Machu Picchu Tour

Machu Picchu Tour

2 Day Machu Picchu tour is one of the most stress-free trips available. Transportation and lodging are completely taken care of, and travelers on the Machu Picchu overnight get to experience the beautiful, ancient Incan city without several days of hiking. 

While this more demanding option appeals to some, the ease of the train ride (with beautiful views of the landscape) to Aguas Calientes, a night in a comfortable hotel, a tour of the city, and transportation home sound more appealing to many tourists. 

2 day 1 night Machu Picchu tour is an especially good travel option for seeing the historical location if pressed for time, for anyone who missed the chance to reserve a spot on the Inca Trail but still wants to see the city, for families with small children, or for those who are less physically able. Machu Picchu is a Wonder of the World and should be available to all people who want to visit, not just those who can hike long distances.

In the lost citadel we can explore the area, seeing the markets and crafting houses around the site. Interacting with people of the area while learn the custom of each one.

Already climbing to the ruins where is the principal attraction, we have to up among the beautiful trees, exploring the ruins and take the pictures we can estimate the magnificence of monuments and the panoramic views from Huayna Picchu mountain to the lost citadel.
