Machu Picchu Express itineraries are great if you have limited time and do not mind enjoying a Machu Picchu tour only for the day - itinerary 3A. If your return flight home departs from Lima after 10 PM, itinerary 3B could be a better choice. Both adventures will delivery a fun but quick visit to the Inca's Sanctuary.
