If you want to have your first glimpse of the sacred Inca citadel of Machu Pichu from a spectacular lookout point, to visit a former religious Inca site while walking along the Andean mountainside overlooking the Urubamba river Valley, to then be amazed by an impressive archeological site that can be reached only by foot and from there to descend into the cloud forest to finally reach the Inti Punku or Sungate and from there make a final descent to get to the extraordinary archaeological complex, then, this 1 Day Inca Trail hike Machu Picchu is perfect for you.
You will arrive early in the afternoon, when the crowds have often thinned out from the morning rush having time to snap some photos while the sun disappears behind the huge Andean mountains.
A proper acclimatization is recommended.
NOTE: Although permits are easier to obtain than for the classic 4 days Inca Trail, you should reserve early to avoid disappointment.

PRIVATE VS. GROUP SERVICES for this 1-Day Inca Trail hike to Machu Picchu?
This is a question we must all ask ourselves before planning a trip. The answer depends a lot on the age, the particular interests of each person but above all on the economy of each passenger. Being in a group of 15/20 people with different interests will probably mean that some of them will want to make shopping without stopping on a souvenir market while others with 10 minutes will have enough, and although there is a schedule for each activity there always exist the person who arrives some minutes late running, causing a loss of your precious vacation time, at the end of the day. Besides, the local official guide of the group will guide in both, English/Spanish languages, will has a strict stipulated itinerary and will be available for the 15/20 people at the same time. The main advantage of this service is the affordable price.
On the other side, with the private services you will have a very accommodate driver who will make the necessary stops where you indicate and for the time you will considerer convenient in each place and a local official guide who will guide in your own language (when possible, if not just in one language, most of the times English) and who will perfectly know your particular interests to make of your trip a very personal experience, without losing time in places that are not of your interest. The main advantage of a private tour is that you use your vacation time more efficiently, learn more about the country and have all the attention of your guide, no doubt a “must” for the demanding client. If you have 5 or more people in the group, we recommend you take the private services as the price gets very close to that of the group services.
