This tour is probably the most popular way to combine these 2 tours to utilise the interesting facts about the culture and history of the Sacred Valley as an introduction and backdrop to the wonder of Machupicchu. Making the best use of your time to reduce backtracking and especially as until July there is no train track between Cusco and Ollantaytambo you need to get to Ollantaytambo to take the train to Aguas Calientes so it is not only your best option but one of your few!
Our tours at Machu Picchu sanctuary starts very early to avoid the crowds and before big groups arrives and packed the Sanctuary Park, personalized guided tour for group of friends, families (4-8 person group) !! Other tour groups in Machu Picchu are with 20-25 person. Excellent guides with years of experience.
