This last day starts very early. Firstly, we will wake up at around 5.00 am, have breakfast, and then take one of the first buses to Machu Picchu. There are two good reasons to be at the entrance of Machu Picchu very early:

1. It is well worth the effort to get up early, as the Inca city is quiet early morning. Certainly, you will have plenty of time to take photos and enjoy the sunrise over Machu Picchu.

2. So, our guide will give you a tour around Machu Picchu, telling you about the history of Machu Picchu and the most famous temples and altars. Of course, he will also take you to the classical viewpoint (sacred Rock Hut), this vantage point offers a terrific view of the whole Inka city. After that you’ll have plenty of free time to explore the city on your own or climb one of the neighboring mountains – Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain (must be arranged ahead of time).

TRIP BACK TO CUSCO

Your guide will offer to meet you down in the village of Aguas Calientes to enjoy your last lunch in a local restaurant. This is optional and not included.
