New Years

We are traveling to Peru after Christmas and are hoping to spend New Years evr in Cuzco/Sacred Valley but were not sure if we would be able to travel to Machu Picchu on the 1st of January.

Does anyone know if train or ruins are closed anytime during the holiday?

1. Re: New Years

I have just checked with the Perurail web site and they do have a train to MP on Jan 1st.

To reserve yr ticket go to orient-express.com/web/tper/tper_a2a_home.jsp

into the plan yr journey area and follow the instructions.

The MP ruins are opened to the public year round.

I suggest you stay at the Kuychi Rumi in the SV ( I own one of the houses) See many reviews on this hotel on Tripadvisor.

Claudia will arrange yr train reservations as well.
