    Machu Picchu Sunrise Tour Itinerary

    Day 1

    You begin the Machu Picchu Sunrise Tour via a tour of the Sacred Valley which takes you to the center of Inca cosmology, visiting some of the Incas sacred site located at the heart of their Empire. The tour begins around 8:45 as you begin to drive out of Cusco and into the fertile Sacred Valley. You will reach lookout points where the tour bus will stop and you will have the opportunity to snap some photos.

    Your first stop is the town of Pisac, a small colonial town where on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays there is an extensive market where you can barter for souvenirs and other goods. Surrounding Pisac there is also extensive Inca ruins, elaborate terracing and housing, it is said that Pisac was used for agricultural experiments. You then continue to Urubamba where you will have buffet lunch (included) with the beautiful scenery surrounding you. 

    It is then on to the town of Ollantaytambo and the fortress that overlooks the small Inca town. Ollantaytambo in fact was the only place where the Incas were actually able to repel Spanish attacks. The vast fortress ruins are an incredible sight too see and the valley itself is unique, making the recounting of its story come to life.

    At approximately 6pm you make your way to the nearby Train station at Ollantaytambo, here you take the Expedition train to Machu Picchu. The difference in price for the Sunrise tour is for the return train which can be either Expedition or Vistadome. Vistadome is not used on the route from Ollantytambo to Aguas Calientes as the train schedule would not allow you time for a tour of Ollantaytambo.

    Regardless of train class the route to Machu Picchu is one of the most beautiful in the world. You begin in the Sacred Valley of the Incas and make your way through to the high jungle passes of the Andes, you are surrounded by beautiful flora and incredible scenery.

    In the evening you arrive at Aguas Calientes, here you have a free evening to spend exploring the small town. You will also be met by your guides who will give you a short briefing on your next days tour of Machu Picchu.

    Day 2

    In the morning you wake up early to hike up to the entrance of Machu Picchu, for the Machu Picchu Sunrise, you also have the option to board one of the first buses up to Machu Picchu if you prefer not to hike. Once up at the ruins you’ll catch a beautiful sunrise over the site (weather permitting) you are then treated to a comprehensive tour of the ruins. Afterwards you have the option of climbing to the peak of Huayna Picchu or exploring the maze of ruins throughout the site.

    Huayna Picchu is regulated in two schedules; 200 climbers allowed up at 7AM and the other 200 at 10AM, We recommend purchasing these admission in advance along with the tour as they sell out in advance, from April to September these can sell out several months in advance. There are little words to describe Machu Picchu and no two visits to the site are alike, it truly is a breathtaking landmark. 

    In the afternoon you can either have lunch outside Machu Picchu or descend to Aguas Calientes and have lunch at one of the many restaurants. The return Expedition train departs at 3:20PM while the Vistadome departs at 4:43PM. Both trains arrive in Poroy 4 hours later where a transport will await you to take you to conclude the tour at Cusco’s Main Plaza. This is the complete Machu Picchu and Sacred Valley experience brought to you by Karikuy Tours!

    The sunrise tour was everything I hoped for and more. The beauty of Machu Picchu, bathed in the soft morning light, was a sight to behold. Our guide, Renato, was brilliant, making the history come alive. The train journey and the evening in Aguas Calientes added to the experience. Kudos to Karikuy Tours!

    The 2-day sunrise tour was an experience of a lifetime. The train journey, the Sacred Valley, and of course, the sunrise at Machu Picchu were all unforgettable. Our guide, Diego, was a gem, sharing insights and stories. The evening in Aguas Calientes was a perfect way to relax. Karikuy Tours, 감사합니다

    Witnessing the sunrise over Machu Picchu was a surreal experience. The Sacred Valley tour was a great introduction, and Pisac’s market was a treat. Our guide, Alejandro, was a walking encyclopedia. The train journey was scenic, and Aguas Calientes had its own charm. Thank you for helping us plan especially Julio and Oscar.

    Il tour all’alba di Machu Picchu è stato incredibile. Vedere le antiche rovine illuminate dalla prima luce del giorno è stato emozionante. La nostra guida, Sofia, era fantastica. La serata ad Aguas Calientes è stata la ciliegina sulla torta. Grazie mille, Karikuy Tours!

    Unser Sonnenaufgangstour nach Machu Picchu war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis. Der Anblick der Ruinen im ersten Licht des Tages war atemberaubend. Unser Führer, Miguel, war sehr kenntnisreich. Der Abend in Aguas Calientes war entspannend. Vielen Dank, Karikuy Tours!
