Overview
The Incan archaeological site of Machu Picchu, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, ranks as one of the world’s most famous, with history dating back to the 15th century. On this private guided tour with round-trip travel from Aguas Calientes, get the inside story on the Royal Tomb, Sacred Plaza, and Sun Gate—and learn more than if touring independently.
What to Expect
Choose the departure time to suit your schedule—between early-morning and mid-afternoon—and meet your private guide at the public bus stop in Aguas Calientes. Then, hop aboard your bus and take the short journey up the hillside to the UNESCO–listed Machu Picchu.

Enjoy sweeping views along the Urubamba River and its canyon, and head inside to explore Machu Picchu on foot. With your private guide to lead the way, admire the ceremonial shrines and terraced hills, and gain insight into the site’s rich Inca history.

Discover key features such as the Main Temple, Royal Tomb, and Sacred Plaza, and hear how the locations would have been used. As you explore the site, capture views of the Sun Gate and Temple of the Sun on camera.

When your time in Machu Picchu comes to an end, return by public bus to Aguas Calientes to conclude your tour.
