Can anyone reccommend me a tour agency that can provide tours from Rio De Janeiro to Machu Picchu ?
Thank you so much
I would think that it would be more sensible to fly to Cusco and visit Machu Picchu by yourself as it will be much cheaper and easy to organize your self. There are early morning trains from Cusco to Machu Picchu which allows you to spend 4-5 hrs there before returning on the afternoon train. This link provides lots of information which may interest you.
Any major Brazilian tour operator has this tour in their brochure, could be TAM Viagens, LAN Nascimento Turismo, RCA, Volayo, etc, but I would really recommend Aventuras & Venturas, specialized in active / adventurous sports holidays. Go to a newspaper stand today and check out O Globo's Boa Viagem section for agency ads that can be helpful.
Thank you for your replies!
Sorry for my limited knowledge but is there any direct budget flights from Rio De Janeiro to Cusco?
Should i stay over one night in Cusco or Machu Picchu ?
Next, can i ask if i can visit iguazu falls in Brazil and by myself as well?
Yes, you certainly can visit Iguazu Falls by yourself. I believe that it is rather expensive to stay near Machu Picchu so i would have a few nights in Cusco as there aree interesting places to visit nearby, There are not too many budgey airlines in S America , unlike SE ASIA, butm i found this site and they operate a bus from rio to Iguazu. I would study the routes as Machu Picchu is one of their destinations too. Make upyour mind what places you want to visit in S America and then you can start to organize your itinerary, and remember it is a huge place,
Thank you so much for the reply
