Machu Picchu Sunrise Tour Details

Experience the best of the Lost Inca City on this two days Machu Picchu Sunrise Tour. Accompanied by a local guide you will discover many astonishing facts about the Inca ruins on a guided tour. 

Machu Picchu Sunrise Tour offers an extensive photography opportunity. You will be walking into the citadel as the golden rays of the rising sun will be beaming on the walls of Machu Picchu as the blanket of clouds will be unveiling what was once the Royal Citadel of Incas. 

On this Machu Picchu Sunrise Tour, we will be accommodating you in an ensuite hotel room in the town of Aguas Calientes. You will have ample of time to explore the town. Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu Pueblo) is popular for the natural hot springs. You can also visit the Machu Picchu museum before the tour to get an introduction to the citadel. 

Although Machu Picchu is open round the year, it is best to experience the tour during the dry season – March to November. During the rainy season often the citadel is covered in clouds and the trails are wet and slippery.
