I'll be taking a train from Machu Picchu to Poroy.

I was wondering if it is possible to make stops along the way to see some of the sites. Specifically, I would like to go to Moray/Sacred Valley on the way home. I'm totally willing to combine train travel and taxi rides but would need to end up back in Cusco.

  • Do you mean that you're buying a single ticket from Machu Picchu to Poroy and want to get off at some stop in between? Commented Nov 23, 2016 at 21:20
  • I haven't purchased the ticket yet. I'll be in Machu Picchu and am heading back to Cusco. I was wondering what the best way to see sites along the way is.

It would help to know when you are planning to travel. For example between Jan 2 and April 30 2017 the PeruRail 'train' service (The Hiram Bingham) is bimodal with a bus from/to Poroy to/from Ollantaytambo and train from/to there. IncaRail also offers services from Ollantaytambo to Machu Picchu.

Singles are available from both operators.

You may however prefer to return with PeruRail to Urubamba, since from there Moray is only about 40 minutes by road, and then work your own way back to Cuzco from Moray.
