6.- The Inca Trail Classic 4D/3N package includes: Train transport return to Cusco is included. The train company only confirm the train schedule option to trekking agencies a few days before a trek for one way tickets from Aguas Calientes in high season dates. The train schedule offered could be anywhere between 4pm and 5pm and usually requires a private bus connection from Ollantaytambo to Cusco provided by SAS Travel. Our preference would be a train departure between 16:30 pm - 5:30 pm but needs to have enough seats available to accommodate the group and usually this is not an issue except around large festivals such as Inti Raymi, Independence day and Easter. Also our hikes to Lares, Salkantay, Huchuy Qosqo hikes,Tours by train to Machupicchu includes a train ticket return to Ollantaytambo and private transfer to Cusco, Arriving by 9.00 pm.
