HOW TO GET TO MACHU PICCHU?

BY TRAIN: If you want to go by train to Machu Picchu, consider that no trains leaves direct from Cusco city and none goes to the city of Cusco. That's why before board your train have to take a bus or a cab to the starting point you have decided. There are two train stations:

  • Poroy station is approximately 30 minutes by cab from Cusco city. (You can take a cab at any time of the day, the average cost is 20 Soles).
  • Ollantaytambo station is approximately 2 hours by bus from Cusco city. (You must take a bus from the Bus station to Ollantaytambo, departs every 30 minutes during all the day, the average cost is 15 Soles).

At the moment to choose in which train will go, you will have to choose between two companies:

PERU RAIL: This company has a variety of schedules and offers three types of services: Expedition, Vistadome and the Hiram Bingham, besides it has two points of departures and arrivals.

  • Poroy – Machu Picchu / Machu Picchu – Poroy.
  • Ollantaytambo – Machu Picchu / Machu Picchu – Ollantaytambo.

You can combine points of going and of return, as well as the type of service. For example you can buy the train ticket to go from Poroy in Vistadome service and to return the train ticket to Ollantaytambo in Expedition service.

We recommend to buy the train ticket to go and come back at the same time, as will be a little more economic. At the moment to buy the tickets, consider that the prices vary according the type of service, depending on the departure or arrival point and also depending on the schedules.

INCA RAIL: This is a company that has fewer years in the tourism market, offers four services: Tourist Service, Executive Service, First Class Service and Presidential service. Just with one point of departure and arrival:

• Ollantaytambo – Machu Picchu / Machu Picchu – Ollantaytambo.

You can also combine type of services to go and to return, for example: First Class Service to go and Tourist Service to return.

We recommend to buy the train ticket to go and come back at the same time to economize on prices. The prices vary according the schedule and the type of service you choose.

When you be in Aguas Calientes, you can buy in the moment, the bus ticket to the Sanctuary of Machu Picchu or if you prefer you can walk around 1 hour and 30 minutes.
