A tourist guide will tell you about the most interesting places along the way.

Arriving in Aguas Calientes, the closest settlement to Machu Picchu, we will go on an excursion to the citadel with a specialized guide touring the same places walked by the Incas. During the approx. 3-hour tour we will appreciate the advanced architectonic achievement of the Incas, as well as the water canals, flights of stairs carved in the sheer rock, the Intihuatana or solar clock, the Royal Tomb, the House of the Priest, the Temple of the Three Windows and the Baths of the Inca. We will enjoy lunch at the Tinkuy Restaurant of the Hotel Sanctuary Lodge, located at the entrance of the archaeological site; before departing we will taste a delicious Tea Time.

Our representative will be waiting for you at the train station of Poroy to transfer you to the 5* Hotel Monasterio of the Orient Express chain.

This beautiful building regarded as historical monument is located on the plot of the former palace of Inca Amaru Qhala, where the Seminary of San Antonio Abad was built in the XVI century. This is why you will be able to sense an air of solemnity combined with luxury, elegance and comfort of a modern 5* hotel in here.
