If you are a history buff this is the perfect place for you.
If you are looking to visit Machu Picchu, you are going to have to plan your trip well in advance. Machu Picchu is one of the most popular attractions in Peru and is getting there is one of the most important parts of the trip. The best way to get to the grandiose citadel is to use a train. There are many different trains that will bring visitors to Machu Picchu, and depending on who you travel with it might be the cheapest way to travel.

There are many backpackers available that will offer their services to those that need them and they often give travelers tips on how to travel cheaply.
Another way to travel cheaply is to join a day tour. The term “day tour” is often used in a general way to describe any tour that is less than a week long. There are many day tours available to the tourist that would prefer to do something other than relaxing and sight see. The benefits of a day tour are that there is very little walking involved, and if you are a traveler that enjoys taking pictures, there are many places that you can go to get some great photos. It is also a great way to explore the country and meet some of the local people.
If you are not a fan of long tours, there is still another way to save money that is relatively easy. Instead of joining a day tour, consider renting a vehicle. Most tour companies have a fleet of cars available for rent for a number of different reasons. If you need to travel a long distance, consider an SUV, or if you want to be able to drive further into the country, a 4-door sedan or coupe. You can always ask the tour company for more specific information if you are unsure of anything.
