It was great and super organised. I was a solo traveller and they helped me on everything! highly recommended!
Won't lie. It's a long day but worth every minute. The train ride is almost as beautiful as Machu Picchu itself. We had 2 boys 3 and 5 in tow and they loved it as well although when asked what their fav parts was... The lolly pop in Cusco. Staff was great, friendly and passionate.
The tour company in Cusco, Viajes Pacifico, provided us with absolutely the very best service. They called the night before to confirm, arrived on time, had all the tickets we required(train, bus, entrance to Machu Picchu), an excellent, informative guide who took us through the paces of Machu Picchu at a perfect pace, very good transportation to and from the train. We are very grateful for their professionalism which made our day-trip the best it could have been. Thank you for all the assistance and organization in making this trip a wonderful experience.
I enjoyed the tour and would definitely recommend everyone to get this tour!
The tour was very well organized. I even got to have a wake up call to get me ready for the 5 a. m. Pick up! The tour guide was very informative and friendly. Machu Picchu was beautiful!
Fabulous from beginning to end and an excellent tour guide and service!
Very well organized! The guide had a very good command of the English language and was very friendly and knowledgeable about the visited site.
Superb is the word. I fully recomend. My choice was one day trip to Machu Pichu. What i found suficient to who stay only for 3days in Cusco. I boght the travel in Viator site for 250€. They pick me in hotel at 4 am and drop me at 10 pm. The day was amazing, everything well arranged with Viator people in every travel point. The guide (mr Hector)was very kind and explained very well all the historic tour. Lots of time to see Machu, to turn around Aguas Calientes and take a beer and come back in the amazing train by night. Something to do again. In regard hotel I was in Los Aticos in center town. Very good in terms of price and simphaty.
Everything is perfect about Viator Machu Picchu tour.I recommend everybody to see Machu Picchu .It was a dream for me,and realized by Viator.
Everything went the way I had expected with pick up on time, no problems with the train,an excellent guide at Machu Picchu and just a wonderfull day.Thanks very much to the Victoria team.
I had a very short window to try to get to Machu Picchu while on a business trip to Lima. Found and signed up for the Viator VistaDome tour via the web. Signing up was very smooth and after calling to confirm per their instructions, eagerly anticipated the trip. Everything went as advertised. They picked me up on schedule at my hotel in Cusco and delivered me to the Vistadome train station. The train was much more comfortable than expected. They served decent food (complimentary) during the beautiful 3.5 hour train ride to Aguas Caliente. Johnny, the Viator guide was waiting for me and the other Viator participants at the train station and escorted us to the bus up the mountain to Machu Picchu. Johnny was a character. GREAT knowledge of Machu Picchu as he had been providing tours of "his office" for over 20 years. Gave incredible insights into the construction, history, and possible uses of Machu Picchu. He was entertaining, engaging and very knowledgeable. His English was not as good as some of the other guides I saw, but it was more than acceptable and his knowledge more than made up for a word or two he could not translate. We spent about 5 hours at the ruin before heading back down. Again, a very smooth trip back to Cusco with Viator agents everywhere they needed to be. THE ONLY thing to ensure if you use this package is that the return train timing is sufficient. When we arrived at Aguas Caliente, we had a return ticket for a 2:30PM train to Cusco, despite availability on much later options. Thankfully, we realized this by comparing return train times with other Viator participants and I was able to change to a 5:45 train. Given the cost and effort to get to Machu Picchu, it would have been a shame to have not maximized the time available. So, definitely check the time of your return ticket....it is arbitrarily assigned by Viator and it is definitely worth maximizing your time. Otherwise, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TOUR.
