Experience the best of Cusco city, Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu on this all inclusive four day Machu Picchu Tours from Cusco. This is one of the tours of Machu Picchu from Cusco that we operate on a daily basis.
Visiting Machu Picchu tops the bucket list of many travellers in South America. We have designed this exclusive two day private guiding tour to offer you the most of the Inca Citadel.
Unlike the regular tours where you will be spending two hours in Machu Picchu, we have designed this in a way so that you can spend two days in the citadel.
We operate this as a private tour. However, if you are on budget do let us know so we can organise this in a small group.

Cusco Airport Transfer
Our representative will be meeting you at the airport and will transfer you to your hotel in Cusco. We will welcome you with a freshly brewed hot cup of coca tea. It will help you to acclimatise to the altitude of Cusco.
You will have the rest of the morning free to yourself so you can take a rest or take a stroll around the former capital of Incas.
At 0130 PM, we will be picking you up from your hotel to begin the Cusco City Tour. On this half day tour, we will be visiting the Cusco Cathedral, Sun Temple (Coricancha), Sacsayhuaman, Q’enqo, Puca Pucara and Tambomachay.
Cusco Cathedral stands right on the main square of Cusco – Plaza de Armas. It was once an Inca Palace. On conquering Cusco, the Spanish rulers demolished the palace and built the cathedral on its remains. It portrays a blend of Inca and Colonial architecture.
Qorikancha, also referred to as the temple of Sun, was a supreme site of worship to Incas. The Incas revered Sun (Inti) and this former Inca temple was very important to them. But, like most sites in Cusco, the Spanish rulers demolished the temple and built the church on its remains.
Legends say that the temple was once covered in Gold. When the Spanish rulers abducted the then Inca Emperor, Atahualpa, most of the gold from the temple was paid as a ransom. But the Spanish to the typical colonial way, beheaded him on receiving the ransom.
The tour continues with a drive to Sacsayhuaman. It is a notable Inca fortress. Here you will be able to see some of the impressive stonework of Incas.
Each rock here weighs over a ton. It is still a mystery though how the Incas transported these rocks here.
We will then visit Q’enqo. This small archaeological site was used by Incas as a place where they made sacrifices and mummified corpses.
The tour continues with a driver further to Puca Pucara. This massive rock was used by Inca militants as a watchtower to safeguard Cusco from any intruders.
Finally, we will be visiting Tambomachay. It has a series of aqueducts which were built by Incas and are in use even today. This place served as a spa to the political elite.
After the tour, we will be driving you back to the centre of Cusco City.
Note: It is highly recommended that you arrive in Cusco between 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
We will be picking you up from your hotel in Cusco early in the morning and will transfer you to Poroy Train station. Here you will be boarding a two and a half hours Vista Dome Train to Aguas Calientes.
The route is scenic and offers spectacular views of the Peruvian Highland farm and villages. Once at Aguas Calientes train station, our representative will meet you and will transfer you to the bus terminal.
Here, you will be boarding the tourist bus to visit Machu Picchu citadel. We will be giving you a two hours guided tour of the citadel. After the tour, you will have some free time to visit the citadel.
Alternatively you can hike to the Sungate. It is how the trekkers on Inca Trail to Machu Picchu enter the citadel.

We will then walk you to the trailhead of Huayna Picchu mountain. Also known as Wayna Picchu, this mountain is a popular sight in the citadel. To maintain its authenticity, authorities restrict the access to just 200 people a day. Often permits sell our months in advance.
Here we will be visiting the temple of the moon and other attractions. The hike up is somewhat challenging, so make sure you are acclimatised and are not afraid of heights.
