NEED TO KNOW
The Hiram Bingam departs from Poroy, a 20 minute drive from the centre of Cusco, through the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu everyday except for Sundays.
The easiest way to get to Cusco is by plane. A number of airlines offer flights from Lima (the closest major international airport).
A round trip journey costs around US$400 and includes brunch and dinner, transfers to Machu Picchu, entrance fee and guided tour of the citadel and afternoon tea at Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge.
