Day1: You will be picked up from the Loki Travel office (departure time will be confirmed in the briefing the evening before departure) and brought to Ollantaytambo by bus where you will have about 1hour to explore the town before catching your train to Aguas Calientes. There will be somebody to pick you up in the train station and bring you to the hostel where you will meet your guide who will brief you about your Machu Picchu tour for the following day.
Day2: In the morning you will start your 1 hour ascent to Machu Picchu on foot or *by bus (*optional) to meet your guide at the entrance of Machu Picchu followed by a two and a half hour guided tour of the citadel. When the guided tour is finished you will have the rest of the day to explore Machu Picchu by yourself, if you have purchased a pass for Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu mountain you will have the opportunity to climb one of these mountains. When you return to Aguas Calientes (20 minutes by bus, about 1hr 45 minutes on foot) you will have to be at the train station 30 minutes before your return train departs.

Machu Picchu FAQ
What is the difference between Huayna Picchu/Machu Picchu mountain?
Huayna Picchu is the mountain located at the northwest end of the ruins and Machu Picchu mountain is located at the southwest end. Huayna Picchu is steeper, but more popular and has some interesting archeological ruins at the top. Machu Picchu mountain is a longer trek, less steep and less crowded and offers great views over Machu Picchu. Check this amazing link out for views from the Huayna Picchu mountain and Machu Picchu mountain (it will open with the Huayna Picchu mountain, click on the right side of the picture and the other views will open).

Cusco - Ollantaytambo by bus is around 1hr 45 min. to 2hrs. The train ride from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes takes another 1hr 30 min. to 1hr 45 min. So think about up to a total of 4 hrs. Aguas Calientes back to Cusco is the same travel time.
