Tour Details
Machu Picchu Bus Tour - Bus to Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu Bus Tour from Cusco is the cheapest way to visit the iconic citadel of Incas. This all inclusive tour is a blend of adventure, nature and culture. Bus to Machu Picchu from Cusco takes you through some of the scenic routes of Peru. 

Traversing through the Sacred Valley of Incas, you will be reaching down to the cloud forest region in Hydroelectric. It is the last point to where you can travel by vehicle. There are no roadways to Aguas Calientes.

From Hydroelectric the only option to reach Aguas Calientes is by hiking or by train. 

The highlight of the first day of the trip is the trail to Machu Picchu town (Aguas Calientes) from Hidro Eletrica along the railway tracks. You will be retracing the footsteps of Hiram Bingham who rediscovered Machu Picchu.

We have crafted this itinerary to budget friendly travellers who are looking to get the most from their trip to Machu Picchu without spending much.

Super cheap and well organised trip. From start to the end everything was perfect. For just a few dollars we visited Machu Picchu on this all inclusive trip. Felt very safe. The route along the railway tracks from Hidroelectrica to Aguas Calientes was very fun.
