Our 4 days Machu Picchu tours are perfect for a quick visit to the ruins. Itinerary 4A is best if you have limited time. If your flight or cruise arrives in Lima before 8:00 AM, itinerary 4B would be a better alternative. 4C is a great choice as it includes several “must see locations”, but it requires changing hotels daily.
