Machu Picchu Travel

We want you to know much more about Peru than what you would on a regular travel package. Our team has designed this itinerary so you can take part in our ancient traditions while also getting to know the history and esoteric side of the most important archeological sites in Cusco, like Machu Picchu.

This itinerary will allow you to connect with nature and your inner self, following the same rituals and ceremonies that our people have been carrying out for centuries. The best part is that every excursion is led by a shaman guide, so you can have a more profound experience in the Andes!

    Arrival in Cusco - Transfer to Hotel

    Our team will be waiting at the Cusco airport to take you to the hotel. We recommend drinking the famous Coca tea, known for helping with any altitude sickness symptoms.

    Important Note: Cusco is located at 3,399 meters above sea level. Therefore, we highly recommend you take a few hours to get used to the altitude before exploring the beautiful Historic Center of Cusco.

    Our shaman guide will explain the mystical and esoteric features of each archeological site, so you can have a broader view of the religious evolution in the Cusco region. Also, we’ll get to meditate in one of the most important fortresses so we can connect with the wind element.

Later, we’ll make a quick stop at the Maras Salt Mines

    Following the itinerary, we’ll head to Ollantaytambo, a lost-in-time town with beautiful urban and natural settings. Here we’ll get to explore the archeological site to learn all about this majestic structure. 

    Later, we will locate a place where we can get into ethereal contact and channel the energy of all these different points. Before finishing the excursion, we’ll perform a cleansing ceremony, focused on depurating the soul and body of bad energies with the use of fire and smoke. 

    We will harmonize our etheric bodies with our physical bodies in an environment full of subtle vibrations, for a direct connection with the Apus and Allpa Mama.

    Overnight in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

    There we’ll have a break from the hustle and bustle of the tourist attractions, while also taking the opportunity to meditate and learn a bit more of the Andean cosmovision. This place holds a circular pre-Inca temple and an enigmatic rock with figures that represent the spirit of water.

    Later, we’ll visit the Inkariy Museum, where we’ll have a broader comprehension of the esoteric knowledge of other cultures that predated the Incas. Here you’ll learn about the Caral, Cahvín, Paracas, Moche, Nasca, Wari, Lambayeque, and Chimu societies.

    Finishing the excursion, we’ll have a lunch break so you can taste the delicious Peruvian gastronomy once again. Later, we’ll head to Ollantaytambo to catch the train to Aguas Calientes.

    Our shaman guide will provide all the details about this wonder of the world, including the mysteries and fascinating facts of the Inca culture. Later, we’ll have a brief meditation, while asking permission to the Apus (ceremonies or rituals are not allowed in Machu Picchu).

    Then, we’ll have some free time to explore, rest, meditate, or just feel the spiritual energy of Machu Picchu. Once the tour is over, we’ll go back to Aguas Calientes to return to the city of Cusco by train.

General information

1. Would my admission ticket to Machu Picchu be refundable if I change the date or cancel my trip?

Recently, the Ministry of Culture of Peru made an update about the changes to the admission ticket to Machu Picchu: all ticket sales are now final. Therefore, the tickets we purchase as part of your tour package are not refundable, and also cannot be transferred to another person or modified to another date.

2. Do you arrange commercial and international flights?

At the moment, we do not arrange international or commercial flights. However, we will help you organize your trip and flight schedules before traveling abroad. Make sure to contact our team and get personalized assistance for planning your trip.

3. Do you organize personalized travel packages?

Yes, we do. Our main goal as a travel agency is to provide an authentic adventure in our country. So, if you want to travel off the beaten path or get the best trip itinerary for Peru, contact our team.

4. Do you offer private tours?

Yes, we do have private excursions to different locations in Peru. We look forward to guaranteeing comfort and showing you much of our history and culture.

5. How do I book a travel package?

Booking a travel package is as easy as requesting a quote on any of our options. Once you’ve filled in your details, one of our travel assistants will contact you. If you still have no idea what you’d like to do during your stay in Peru, don’t worry, we are here to help you.

Our sales team will handle all the details of your trip. They will also give you options for the destinations in our country, so you’ll realize that planning a trip abroad has never been easier.

6. How far in advance should I book my trip?

Usually, we recommend booking your trip 2-3 months in advance. This is especially true for long stays in Peru. Viagens Machu Picchu works with 3 to 5-star hotels. Most of them request booking weeks in advance, they also book tours, train rides, transportation options, and other services.

7. What is the best train for Machu Picchu: Expedition or Vistadome?

We recommend you take the Expedition train on the way to Aguas Calientes since most of the departure times are generally when it’s dark. The expedition train has simpler wagons with smaller windows.

Usually, the return takes place during daylight. That's why we recommend you take the Vistadome train. It has panoramic windows, where you'll enjoy the striking scenery of this road. Also, the Vistadome train offers onboard service and typical dance shows.

8. Are the train tickets included in the package?

Yes, all our packages include round-trip train tickets. Except for those who may choose to go to Machu Picchu by trek. In this case, we’ll only cover the return ticket.

9. Can I choose seats on train trips?

Unfortunately, Peru Rail (the railway company) does not allow passengers to choose seats on any of their different types of trains. The distribution of these is done automatically by the company’s system.

10. During the trip to Machu Picchu, where will my largest luggage stay?

Bags that weigh more than 5kg are not allowed on the train or in the Archeological Site of Machu Picchu. Therefore, you must leave your large luggage in the storage service of your accommodation.

For your trip to Machu Picchu, we highly recommend you carry a light backpack with just the essentials for your comfort.

11. What are the Huayna Picchu and Machu Picchu Mountains?

Those are the surrounding mountains of the Inca Citadel. Huayna Picchu is 2,720 meters above sea level, offering a great view of the site and several Inca ruins along the trail.

Machu Picchu Mountain is located 3,082 meters above sea level and serves as another viewpoint of the famous historical sanctuary. Yet, the trek to its summit is significantly less challenging than the Huayna Picchu mountain.

To trek either of these mounts, you must purchase an additional entrance ticket well in advance. For more information, contact your travel agent.

12. What Currency is Used in Peru?

Nuevo Soles is the local currency in Peru, banknotes come in denominations of 200, 100, 50, 20, and 10. Whilst coins come in 5, 2, 1, 0.50, 0.20, and 0,10 units.

13. What is the best currency to use in Peru: US Dollars or Soles?

Almost all establishments accept payments in US Dollars. However, we highly recommend you have both Dollars and Soles (the local currency). There might be places where you’ll need to pay only with Soles.

14. What are the Peru entry requirements?

Depending on your nationality, you would either need a tourist visa, valid passport, or your national I.D. card to enter Peru, for example:

- Passport: Concerns to every country that isn’t in the Andean Community. It must have a validity of at least 6 months. - Tourist Visa: This applies to visitors from Venezuela, Haití, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Cuba. The national ID card is valid for all the members of the Andean Community. This includes Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina.

However, we’d like to ensure the integrity of our passengers by acknowledging that some other situations may be taken into account. Therefore, if there is any inconvenience, contact your travel agent.
