A walking tour (approximately 2 hours) is given by your guide and after that you can explore the mysterious city by yourselves. You will meet your guide in Aguas Calientes (it can be reached by bus or on foot) for lunch and to be given your train tickets back to Cusco. The train usually leaves at 15.55 and we will arrive back in Cusco at about 20.45.
If desired, an extra night in Aguas Calientes town can be arranged. This option is very popular as it allows much more time to explore Machupicchu. There are also thermal springs in the town (entrance 10 soles) which are a real treat after finishing the trail.
