After enjoying the magic of Machu Picchu, we will return to Aguas Calientes around 11.00 am, where we will begin our return on foot to the Hydroelectric (approximately 3hrs), where our bus awaits us. Once we have arrived at the hydroelectric power station, we will start our return trip by bus to Cusco. We will be arriving by 9:00 pm approx.

The drop-off will be at Plaza Regocijo, close to Plaza de Armas. We do this due the traffic in Cusco city by night is chaotic, and the arrival at your hostel door may take too much time. We hope you can understand.
