A worry free experience! They had door to door transportation organized, we had enough time to explore the ruins at a leisurely pace and even to have lunch afterwards, never feeling rushed. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and catered the tour of the ruins towards what interested us most!
Recommendation: stay overnight in Aguas Calentes and visit M. P. early in the morning before the day trip tourists from Cusco arrive.
Awesome from pick up from hotel till drop off. I will do it again.
Everything was very well organized, although I had to find the local phone number of the tour operator and call to find out what time my hotel pick up was. I've used Viator before and they contract with local tour operators but so far my experiences have been excellent. I would definitely use again.
Really well organized. Everything was exactly as described in the confirmation email/receipt for the tour transfers. The company even called the hotel to arrange for a wake up call the morning of the trip and to arrange the pickup from the hotel. Guide was really nice and accommodating to all the participants.
Everything was perfect. From pick up at the hotel to delivery, no detail was missed.I was the only English speaker in the group and I had my own guide, which was great. I've been looking forward to this trip for ages and It was everything I expected and more.
very knowledgable staff, everything went very smoothly. We had a wonderful day !!
Well organized well worth it tour. enjoyed every minute. Vista dome train was fantastic. From the breakfast and the return journey with their dance and fashion show parade, Tour guide at Machu Pichu was very patient and excellent. My sister is asthmatic and was able to climb because of this tour guide.
This is a great way to do a day trip from Cusco to Machu Picchu stress free. All transportation and tickets starting from your hotel and back to your hotel is included. It was just over 15 hours total door to door starting at APPROX 5:30 am....they came at 5:40am....not a big deal but something to keep in mind so you don't get nervous. The local tour operator seemed very experienced and reliable. TAKE THE VISTADOME...its so worth it....brand new clean trains...snack service is included both ways....only tourists on board and only stops once or twice at INCA Trail dropoff points for people that are hiking....super friendly staff with high patience for tourists and speak english....on the way back they try to sell Alpaca clothing....by doing a FASHION SHOW which lasted about 30-45 minutes....it was so much fun and helped to pass the 3.5 hour train ride on the way back very quickly. They also have Pisco Sour for purchase on the way back...English guide was adequate though some room for improvement....spent about 2.5-3 hours on top. This has everything you need in a great cost effective package for visit MP from Cusco in one day.
We faced complicated logistics which were handled with ease by the tour operator. A very pleasant experience. Machu Picchu is not to be missed and this tour operator is highly recommended.
