Amazing Trips & Tours to Machu Picchu

Surtrek’s Machu Picchu experts can seamlessly plan your adventure to this legendary site, perched high in the Peruvian Andes in mist-shrouded forests. To reach that long-forgotten world, we can take you to our base in the ancient city of Cusco, and from there,  your English speaking guide will accompany you to the timeless structures in the Sacred Valley before finally reaching the citadel.


Without comparison or equal, Machu Picchu regularly rates as one of the world’s top travel experiences. A truly incredible ancient wonder, the “Lost City” is as magnetic and awe-inspiring now as it was when first constructed.


Whether you choose to reach Machu Picchu through a multi-day hike along the Inca trail, or by taking a relaxing journey to the site on board the luxury Vistadome train, or as part of a multi-destination tour, Surtrek can custom design and organize your trip.

What you’ll experience on your trip to Machu Picchu

Beyond a generic tour, with Surtrek, the deeply spiritual experience of the “Lost City” is more like a pilgrimage, one that pays homage to those of the distant past.

Catching your first glimpse of the complex is always an unforgettable, as the ancient stone walls of the citadel’s 150 buildings and manicured grounds come into view. Once inside, relish an insightful walking tour of the site as you visit living quarters, temples of the sun and moon, agricultural terraces and more.

Learn the rituals and theories behind Machu Picchu’s purpose and significance. Climb up some of 3,000 ancient stone steps, staggered agricultural terraces and numerous ceremonial sites of this 15th century Inca citadel.

See why Machu Picchu has captured the imagination for generations, having laid untouched and unseen by the wider world for over 400 years.


Best time to experience Machu Picchu

The most popular time to visit the Machu Picchu is during the dry season, which extends from April-October. However, we at Surtrek recommend visiting the “Lost City” during the off-peak “shoulder seasons” of April-May or September-October, when there are fewer tourists and the weather is still accommodating.

If you can only travel during this peak summertime season (June-August), Surtrek will work with you to plan and book your tour well in advance.


Getting to Machu Picchu

The overwhelming majority of travelers reach Machu Picchu by first taking a flight to the Peruvian capital city of Lima. From there, you can fly to the Inca capital of Cusco, whose streets, still to this day are lined with Inca Walls where the great Inca kings ruled an expansive empire from modern day Ecuador to Chile.

A train with panoramic windows will take you from Cusco, meandering through the scenic Sacred Valley to arrive in the town of Aguas Calientes, situated at the foot of the citadel. (Travelers who have more time and seek a more active adventure might instead choose to hike the famous Inca Trail between Cusco and Machu Picchu).

From Aguas Calientes, a short shuttle-bus will then zigzag you up the mountainside to reach the gates of the legendary ruins of Machu Picchu.
