    Today we will visit MACHUPICCHU, a magical and spiritual place and one of the seven wonders of the word.

    In 2019 the government changed the rules for visitors to Machupicchu, with less people now being allowed in, and the permitted stay being shorter. So, to make the most of our time there and to fully enjoy this once in a lifetime experience, we will start our tour by taking a bus from Aguas Calientes to Machupicchu (the departure time will depend on the time of the entrance tickets you have reserved). Once we arrive, we will have a 3-hour guided tour through the different sections of Machupicchu- such as the urban sector, religious sector, and agricultural sector. After the tour we will head back to Aguas Calientes by bus and from there we will take a train back to Cusco. Usually, the train we take will be the one leaving at 2:55pm, but this will depend on your schedule. The train will take us to Ollantaytambo, from where we will take a bus back to the hotel, dropping you off at your hotel around 7:30pm.
