We had a mixed feelings. Pacific Travel was not at fall, but waking up at 2:30am to be picked up from the hotel at 3:30am, was NOT a nice experience when you are on vacation. The failure to tell us that, you need to show passports at the entrance of Machu Picchu...caused a distasteful situation and additional costs (had to buy another entrance tickets). Overall the tour was great.
I enjoyed this trip very much! The best reason to do this tour is to outsource your headaches and by headaches, I mean getting bus tickets, train tickets, transportation to the bus station, return trip to Cusco, etc. Also, when I got to Cusco, I had a little trouble discussing my trip with the tour company on the phone because they were having computer troubles however their main office is just a few streets away from San Pedro market so I walked over there and sorted everything out (not a long walk at all). They were very helpful. The tour guide was very knowledgeable although he did get a little annoyed when we were taking pictures while he was talking. Overall, a great experience and I would do it again.
incredible experience and although the traveling period was long, it was nice not having to worry about finding our own form of transportation
Fantastic trip well organised, enjoyed every part of it. The vistadome train trip is wonderful. A pity it isnt made clear that the trains can not leave from Cusco anymore, so half of the trip is done by coach and only half is on the vistadome.
This was amazing! Spent 2 weeks in South America (Colombia and Peru), and this was by far the highlight of the trip! Must do!
It was amazing!! I don't think the photos tell the whole story and one has to be there to experience it. The trip makes for a long day but it was worth it. Because of rain in Cusco, we had to take a 2 hour bus and then the train. I was expecting the train all the way from Cusco.
Great experience! The trip started with a hotel pick up in the morning, transportation to Machu Picchu, English speaking guide, and transportation back to our hotel in the evening. Our guide Victor was the best guide we’ve ever had. We asked him a lot of questions and he always answered in details and with a smile.
I do recommend this trip.
Excellent place. Tremendous energy! ! Very much it was pleasant to us. From minuses - foolish system of distribution of places in the train when one family transplant on the different ends of the car. The prices in Makchu Pikchu the very high
Excellent day out. PERU Rail was wonderful. The early start was a challenge but everything went to plan with this trip. Highly recommend this day out.
My trip to Machu Picchu was great. Our guide Angel was great explaining his knowledge of the place. The weather was great and everything was on time. I would recommend this tour for the amazing views of Machu Picchu.
I recently visited Machu Picchu on a day tour and the service was 100% .
the planning and logistics were taken care of including transportation to and from the hotel to\from train station as well as bus and tour passes. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.the lunch was great.
Wery nice, exelent guide at Machu Picchu, and very nice journey with the train!
I wish I could remember the tour guide's name for this trip. She was absolutely wonderful. Smart, knowing so much about the area to share with us. She could answer every question. She was also great because she helped me to do the climb slowly which was great that she was so thoughtful to make sure that everyone's needs were met. This was a fun enjoyable train ride too.
