Know More about this tour

Your 2-day, small-group tour begins around 7am when you're picked up from your Cusco hotel by minivan. Pass through the Sacred Valley of the Incas to get to the snow-capped mountains of Abra Malaga, the highest point along the route. Snap a photo of the view before descending to the abundant vegetation of the high jungle. Stop for a traditional Andean lunch in the village of Santa Teresa before continuing to the Hydroelectric station and finally Aguas Calientes. You have the option to go to the hot springs at your own expense, or simply settle into your hostel — which has private bathrooms and hot water.

On the second day have breakfast at your hostel and leave on foot to reach Machu Picchu before dawn (about an hour's walk), or take the first bus at 6am. Join your group for a 2.5-hour guided tour of the iconic archaeological site, and have plenty of time to freely explore on your own. After you leave Machu Picchu, walk for approximately 3 hours to the Hydroelectric station where a minivan will be waiting to transport you back to Cusco. The tour ends around 8 or 9pm when you're dropped off at your Cusco hotel.

  • We booked the 2-Day Tour to Machu Picchu By Minivan from Cusco through Viator which was a big mistake and Viator fully refunded us after the horrible experience. The tour operator listed on our confirmation was Esteban Adventure Agencia de Operadora de Turismo. I have had some cool travel opportunities on multiple continents and this stands out as the worst tour I have ever done.

    We found it hard to get information online about visiting Machu Picchu. The official website for making the bookings was having technical difficulties and much of the information was in Spanish. We decided to book an overnight guided tour to Machu Picchu through Viator since we thought it would make the visit less complicated. Viator falsely listed on their website Our Product Managers select only the most experienced and reliable operators in each destination, removing the guesswork for you, and ensuring your peace of mind. So far from true and more stress on this trip than any other vacation.

    The company was horrible at communicating and did not actually provide guides for the guided tour. For example, they provide van transportation to the Hydroelectric station but then leave you on your own to walk 2-3 hours along the train track to Aguas Calientes. There is an option to book a train for 31 each way but none of this was communicated prior to trip ie the train to Aguas Calientes and bus to Machu Picchu are not listed in the exclusion section on the Viator website. Either way you are required to carry your luggage either walking or on the train for an additional charge. I would think that should have been communicated on the website or at the very least during the tour confirmation communication. When you arrive in Aguas Calientes, you have to find a plaza on your own and wait there to be given further instruction ie your hotel name when you are then on your own to find it. The private van with only 15 people turns into a gathering of more than 50 people. Totally chaotic and a big waste of time and money. When you complain to the guides about the information not being provided properly on the Viator website or in the confirmation and they take no responsibility since they are contractors. I dont have a suggestion of which company to use but please dont waste your time and money with this unprofessional group.
