Travel Machu Picchu is a brand new program which motivates Peruvian and foreign students to discover Machu Picchu, taking advantage of the itineraries of lesser demand, of the local train between Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu Pueblo and vice-versa, which allows them to remain more time in Machu Picchu, so as to visit archaeological complexes, such as Wiñaywayna, the Temple of the Moon and others yet, that cannot normally be appreciated on a short visit. We also offer free day use service, at our own hotel, in Cusco, to visitors who arrive on the day their program starts, to then transfer them on our vehicles, to the locality of Ollantaytambo and ensure their connection with the local train service to Machu Picchu Pueblo, to go there and come back.
