Machu Picchu Express itinerary 3A is best if you have limited time and do not mind going to Machu Picchu only for the day (3.5 hours each way by train from Cusco).  If your return flight home departs from Lima after 10 PM, itinerary 3B could be a better alternative – includes Machu Picchu tickets for 2 days and passes to climb Huayna Picchu.
