Taxis from Ollantaytambo to Cusco?

Jump to last reply

Looking for help/recommendations re: transportation from Ollantaytambo to Cusco. We're staying in Ollan on Saturday night, and then taking the first train to Machu Picchu on Sunday morning. We will spend all day Sunday at MP, stay in Aguas Calientes Sunday night, and then go back to Cusco Monday morning. We need to get back to Cusco by early afternoon, in order to catch a flight to Lima at 4:45p.

There are no M.Picchu - Cusco trains available in the morning (they only leave in the evening). We were planning to take the train from Aguas Calientes - Ollan, and then take a taxi to Cusco from there. I've read many posts and websites about taxis from Cusco TO Ollan, but not the other way around. I assume this is possible? Are there plenty of taxis available at the Ollan train station to do this? Is this something I should/can arrange with my hotel ahead of time?

Thanks!!
