Description

Macchu Picchu was completed in approximately 1450 in the height of the Incan empire only to be abandoned less than 100 years later following the Spanish conquest of Peru and is today considered by many to be the new spiritual center of the world. Visiting the Lost Citadel of the Incas is a trully unforgettable experience!

After a short drive to the Cusco railway station or a longest one to Ollantaytambo train station, we'll take the Expedition or the Vistadome train to Aguas Calientes station to see one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

The Expedition Train is the best option to Machu Picchu for the adventurous travelers who want to discover it at their own pace. The journey becomes an expedition itself that begins before reaching Machu Picchu. Sit comfortably and relax in cars that are completely surrounded by panoramic windows to be able to appreciate in full the beauty of the natural landscape.

Surrounded entirely by glass, with wagons having large panoramic windows offering incomparable scenic views and in-numerous opportunities to capture spectacular snapshots, Vistadome travelers will feel connected and part of the awesome landscape of Peru. Enjoy on board top rate personalized service and have an unforgettable life experience.

We arrive at the Aguas Calientes station where the staff will assist us on boarding the bus to go up the winding road to the Sacred City of Machu Picchu, amid a spectacular view of the Urubamba River and its canyon.

The Machu Picchu Lost City of the Incas will astonish us with its terraces, ceremonial shrines, steps and urban areas. Energy is all around us.

Learn from our expert guides as you walk the main streets of these amazing ruins, stroll through town squares and climb its delicately carved stone stairways. Esoteric wisdom holds Machu Picchu as the new spiritual center of the world. Have time to be by yourself to 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 we'll have an optional buffet lunch waiting for you. After lunch, you'll return to the train station in the afternoon for the trip back to Cusco.
