Very Important

In order to get to Machu Picchu from Lima, you first have to reach Cusco. Your options to get to Cusco from Lima are by plane or by bus. There are no trains connecting these two cities. Flying is the fastest (one hour and 15 mints), most comfortable and more convenient alternative. There are many flights leaving from Lima to Cusco all morning until early afternoon. There are no flights late in the afternoon or at night. The reason is the location of the airport in Cusco and tale winds that make difficult the landing in the afternoon and night. There are four airlines flying daily from Lima to Cusco and viceversa. They are Latam, Taca, Star Peru and Peruvian Airlines.

In regard to the bus alternative, there are 2 buses per day connecting Lima and Cusco. The bus companies are Cruz Del Sur and Peru hop. Buses leave at 2 pm, 5 pm and 5:30 pm. It is a 23 hours journey including overnight on the bus. Thereby this option is longer, less comfortable and not very convenient when compared to the flights; but it is cheaper.

Note:

Happy Gringo Tours highly recommends flying that’s why our tours consider this option rather than the bus. This makes sense especially if you will not stay for a long period of time and you are not on a tight budget.

◙ So if you are planning to travel from Lima to Machu Picchu, our trips are your best alternative. We will reserve your accommodation in Lima and Cusco, also the transfers to the airports and hotels, and include tours to visit the main attractions in Cusco plus the train to Machu Picchu or the Inca trail hike.
