Machu Picchu Overnight

BOOK ONLINE
Machu Picchu Overnight

This trip to the lost city is one of the most stress-free trips available. Transportation and lodging are completely taken care of, and travelers on the Machu Picchu overnight get to experience the beautiful, ancient Incan city without several days of hiking. While this more demanding option appeals to some, the ease of the train ride (with beautiful views of the landscape) to Aguas Calientes, a night in a comfortable hotel, a tour of the city, and transportation home sound more appealing to many tourists. This is an especially good travel option for seeing the historical location if pressed for time, for anyone who missed the chance to reserve a spot on the Inca Trail but still wants to see the city, for families with small children, or for those who are less physically able. Machu Picchu is a Wonder of the World and should be available to all people who want to visit, not just those who can hike long distances. Book Now Online the 2 Day Machu Picchu tour!.

We recommend you to keep weight of your luggage under 7 kg (20 lb.).

 

Most of travelers use a suitcase. However, a big backpack would be more suitable. In any case, please do not forget a small rucksack that you will need for daily travels (to carry your bottled water, camera, snacks, etc.).
