Machu Picchu Tours & Trips
Machu Picchu tours from Lima take travelers to the city of Cusco, the former capital of the Incan Empire and gateway city to Machu Picchu. Unquestionably the most famous of all archaeological sites in South America – if not the world – the incredible UNESCO World Heritage Site of Machu Picchu is spectacularly located in a breathtaking location, nestled among the lush green valleys and mountains of the Peruvian Andes. Bewitching clouds of mist cushion the City of the Incas’ iconic stone terraces, (especially if taking a Machu Picchu tour during the rainy season), and the sprawling temples and imperious palaces perch timelessly as if the Inca have never left.
A Machu Picchu trip is a must for any travelers to Peru – the only decision to make is how to get there. Take a scenic train ride through the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu Pueblo – known by locals as Aguas Calientes after its thermal springs – and revel in a Machu Picchu private tour perhaps with your very own personal guide to regale you with their Incan insight and expert knowledge. Alternatively the more adventurous may choose to hike past other Incan ruins through cloud forests along the classic Inca Trail, one of the world’s most famous treks.
