Machu Picchu tours train line to reopen next week
Travellers who go on Machu Picchu tours will be able to take advantage of a full range of transport options from next week.
A railway line which connects Machu Picchu to Cuzco is to be fully restored by July 1st 2010, meaning there will once again be a direct land route to the Incan citadel.
Although stormy weather closed the route at the turn of the year, tourism officials have been running a reduced service since March, which required taking a bus service to the ruins.
The reopening of the railway service means that the thousands of visitors who head to the Incan ruins every day will be able to enjoy a quicker and simpler trip to the citadel.
Travellers who book onto one of The Adventure Company's Machu Picchu tours will have a chance to enjoy a ride on the train.
People who go on the Classic Peru trip are also given a chance to check out the Ballestas Islands, Colca Canyon and Lake Titicaca before visiting the Sacred Valley.
