3 Days - From $790
Machu Picchu Express itinerary 3A is best if you have limited time and do not mind enjoying a Machu Picchu tour 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.
