With beautiful scenery throughout the journey the train journey itself is an experience.

If you want to take advantage of your free afternoon you can visit the Machu Picchu museum and orchid exhibition which is a 35 minute walk outside of the village or you can just relax in the hot springs that the village is named after.

We'll have a 2 hour guided tour of the site during which you'll learn about the Incas and visit all the most important areas of the citadel. After your tour you'll have free time to explore the site by yourself and if you have permits to climb either Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu mountain. In the afternoon (aprox. 16:00 to 17:00) you will take the train back to Ollantaytambo from where you will carry on by bus back to Cusco (arrives between 8-9pm).
