Machu Picchu Tour with Overnight; when visiting Machu Picchu, the best option is to overnight in Aguas Calientes so that you will have enough time to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the sanctuary of Machu Picchu. You can visit the village of Aguas Calientes, the thermal baths and the other attractions that this village has to offer. The location of Machu Picchu, in the middle of the canyon of the Urubamba River, could not have been chosen better. You can clearly see that Machu Picchu is a construction site designed precisely to fit the landscape around it. This resulted in a beautiful sanctuary that is integrated in nature with great success. The natural topography was transformed in terraces with agricultural and urban aims, which merge completely with their surroundings. Next to this, there are also at least two dozens of rocks, which, as scale models, represent the surrounding topography.

In the sanctuary of Machu Picchu, surrounded by majestic snow-covered mountains, exist abundant flora and fauna, which attracts locals and strangers. The famous Inca city of Machu Picchu is the most important symbol of the Andean culture. It is difficult to find a comparable place to Machu Picchu anywhere in the world. This sanctuary is one of the most important archeological monuments in the world, and declared as cultural heritage of humanity by UNESCO, together with the city of Cusco.

Visiting Machu Picchu with a professional guide represents a unique experience. The mystic solemnity that comes off its imposing walls and the mysteries that those stones involve, inspire a deep respect to the constructors of the monumental work, who knew how to conjugate the art of their creation with the capricious and wild nature

Day 1: Cusco – Aguas Calientes / Mandor

In order to give you enough time to enjoy the breathtaking scenery, we will pick you up from your hotel early in the morning to be able to take an early train. This journey to Aguas Calientes will take approximately 4 hours during which you can enjoy the stunning views of Peruvian landscapes. Once arrived and checked in to the hotel you will have the time to enjoy lunch.

You have different options to spend your afternoon in Aguas Calientes. The town Aguas Calientes is famous for its hot springs. If you prefer a cultural visit, the town offers different museums worth visiting. Last but not least we offer the optional visit the waterfalls of Mandor. They are home to an enormous natural wealth, a great variety of orchids and medicine plants or just go to relax to the hot springs.

We advise you to go to bed early because day 2 will start very early.

Day 2: Machu Picchu – Cusco

To be able to enjoy the mind-blowing sunrise above the sanctuary of Machu Picchu we choose to take the earliest bus around 5:30am.

Upon arrival, we offer you a first class guided tour to discover more about the site and life and culture of its inhabitants. This tour will take approximately 2 hours and a half during which you will receive headphones in order to be able to hear every word of the guide’s explanation.

After the guided tour, the guide will explain you what time you should go back in order to get your train to Cusco. You will have plenty of time to visit Machu Picchu on your own after the tour. For those who are looking for the best pictures of the site we offer the possibility to climb up to Huayna Picchu. It takes approximately 2 hours to go up and down. If you would like to do this, please inform us during the booking, places are limited and tickets must be bought in advance.

When arriving by train in Cusco we will pick you up to bring you to your hotel.

Advise:

After the guided tour in Machu Picchu, you will have enough time to get into the mystic energy and peace of the sanctuary. There is also the possibility to ascent the mythical mountain Huayna Picchu, a place where you will have the best view over Machu Picchu, and also you could head for tropical scenery leading through the Inca Trail network towards the temple of the moon, a sacred place with the function of cult of the moon, an important goddess during the Inca dynasty.

    J'ai été absolument ravie des services de cette agence ! En contact avec Dimas, celui-ci m'a toujours donné de bons conseils et m'a organisé le trek Inca (4 jours de rando vers le Macchu Picchu) et 3 jours au lac Titicaca à la perfection ! Je suis partie seule mais avec cette agence, je ne me suis jamais sentie seule 🙏❤️ Dimas parle français, un point de plus pour les non polyglottes 😁😁

    Did the four-day Inca tour with our guide Lazandro, and had a great time with the small group of five we had. Booked when we arrived in Cusco and paid $540 including credit card fees, though I believe pricing is more expensive when booking in advance/online. Enjoyed the small group experience and ability to go at your own pace (unlike some of the larger agencies that bring multiple waves of people). Food was great and the camping conditions were satisfactory, though everyone on the Inca Trail is subject to primitive pit toilets. Pacing of the tour was better than other groups who had to summit twice in a day. I recommend the agency, but with the one caveat that I wish they provided better boots or hiking apparel for their porters. As they are all required by law, some of the other agencies provide much better equipment for their porters, and I wish Xtreme Tourbulencia did the same. Overall, great experience and what I felt was a good value trek!

    We went as a couple on the Inka trail for 4 days. I think we had one of the best trek experience we could have with Rene and Nestor as guides, Cesar, Mario, Papicho and all the others as porters and cooks. Thank you so much. We booked through ITEP agency in Cusco and everything went super well. Rene was very proactive, reliable and proficient. 5/5 for him and the team. Edit: quiero mas chupi! A couple of negative points for me: - Just know that this is a very busy trail, and the Machu Picchu is even busier - that's nothing to blame either on the company nor on the team - it seems that the team, most importantly the porters, are not so well paid, or at least it is unclear how much they earn. We tried to compensate this with tips, but it's just impossible to know if you're tipping right, and it would be much preferrable if the company was transparent about where the money goes.

    Wir waren mit Xtreme Tourbulencia vier Tage auf dem Inka Trail unterwegs und haben die Wanderung dank der guten Betreuung und Versorgung durch das Team erfolgreich hinter uns gebracht. Der Guide René hat sich super auf unser Tempo eingestellt und die Tour mit zahlreichen Erklärungen zu Kultur, Architektur, Pflanzen, Tieren und vielem mehr bereichert. Kann ich nur weiterempfehlen!
