What can you do before or after this tour
Things to do AFTER this tour
A relaxed visit of Machu Picchu
Instead of travelling up and down all the way from Cusco to Machu Picchu in only 1 day, having to rush from A to B to Z, you can leave for Aguas Calientes the day before your visit to Machu Picchu, thus taking out the stress of too much kilometres in one day, leaving you a good night's rest before you actually visit Machu Picchu the next day. The same as the one day trip, but spread over more time and thus a lot less stressful and including a hotel in Aguas Calientes.

About Pool tours
A pool tour means that you are being put together with people from other hotels to make a visit somewhere together.
What you should know is that guides on these tours are not paid so well. This has two consequences. First, the good guides find work somewhere else, second, the 'lesser' guides who do work the circuit will try to compensate for their (low) wages by begging for tips and most of all, by taking you to souvenir markets and restaurants where they get a high commission. How you react to this situation is up to you, but we'd like you to be informed well before buying.
