If you want to omit bus expenses, you can do the roundtrip by walking. We recommend you take the tour on foot, only if you are in very good physical condition and if you have enough time to do it.
The climb on foot can take an hour and the slope is very steep. If you want to make only one of the two journeys on foot, we suggest you do it on the way back (downhill) as it is feasible that when walking uphill finish the tired climb route without so much energy to travel the extensive citadel of Machu Picchu.
