At a previously arranged time, we will pick you up from your hotel and transport you in a private car to the Ollantaytambo train station. This trip will take no more than 2 hours, during which we will be able to make a few stops along the way to see beautiful panoramic views the Sacred Valley of the Incas has to offer. You will also have the opportunity to see snowcapped mountains within the famous Andean mountain range. Upon arrival in Ollantaytambo, there will be free time to explore the town, which has been made famous for its preservation of ancient Incan housing. We will then embark the tourist train to Machupicchu Town (also known as Aguas Calientes), where the transfer will be waiting to take us to our accommodations for the night. You will then have free time to wander through the town or even visit the thermal baths.  That night, the guide will visit the accommodations to inform everyone of the plan for the second day of the tour.
