Start the day by rising early and enjoying a scenic train tide to the Peruvian town of Aguas Calientes. Transfer to a bus for a brief journey to the much-visited archaeological site of Machu Picchu.
There’s a reason why this awesome complex is celebrated, loved, and mused over by historians, travellers, stargazers, and mystics – it is simply one of the most astounding places on Earth!
