Get the most out of Cusco and Machu Picchu on a 2-day private tour, and enjoy the personalized attention of a private sightseeing experience! This tour is specifically designed for those who have a limited time in Cusco and want to visit the sacred citadel of Machu Picchu. If you're simply making a stopover in Cusco or want a weekend getaway from Lima, this is the tour for you!


  • All entrance fees included
  • Buffet lunch included
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Led by a local guide
  • Private tour is operated with just your party and a guide/driver
Upon your arrival in Cusco, your two-day private tour begins as you are picked up from the airport and taken to your hotel to drop off your luggage. While checking in, you'll be greeted with coca tea, which helps defeat altitude sickness. Then it's straight to the train station for your Machu Picchu day trip!

The Vistadome train is a comfortable way to journey to Machu Picchu. Renovated carriages have beautiful panoramic windows to make the most of the spectacular scenery and allow for fantastic photo opportunities. Delicious snacks, as well as hot and cold refreshments, are served on the way.

Upon arrival at Aguas Calientes station, you'll board a small bus and head up to the ruins of the “sacred city”, Machu Picchu. Your expert guide will walk with you through the main streets of these amazing ruins. Stroll through town squares and climb delicately carved stone stairways. Esoteric wisdom holds Machu Picchu as the new spiritual center of the world. There will be time to be alone and fully embrace this magnificent wonder of the world, letting this once-in-a-lifetime experience set in. Hiking the ruins is sure to work up an appetite so there will be a buffet lunch at the Sanctuary Lodge (the only lodge and restaurant at the top of the mountain) waiting for you.

In the afternoon, you'll return to the train station in Aguas Calientes and board the Vistadome train for the trip back to Cusco. The following day, after breakfast, you'll be taken back to the airport for your return flight to Lima.

Please note:
You must take the first flight into Cusco in order to catch the train to Machu Picchu.

Traveler Reviews

Reviewed by: david n, December 2012

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and my guide, however, Viator needs to be honest about the advertisement as this was not a 2 day tour. I assumed the "2nd" day would be a tour of Cusco the city but was dissapointed to find out that you are whisked in and whisked out and really only have 1 day and 1 night agenda. As soon as you arrive, you are taken to hotel to drop off luggage then off to train station to get to Machu Pichu, and at end of day brought back to Cusco and taken to airport early am to go back wherever you arrived from. I chose to make it a two day by booking another night at my expense at the hotel and toured city, again on my own overall it is not what they say it is. Get another hotel as you can find many many less expensive hotels in area (hostels suggested here). I think 700.00 for 1 day night is way too expensive. Machu Picchu and guide were amazing though...and thats all you get plus buffet at entrance.
