My trip was everything I hoped for and more. The tour was excellent. I contacted them on arrival and they confirmed my hotel pick up time and were there promptly on the day of the tour. My English speaking guide was waiting for me on arrival at the base of Machu Picchu and he was excellent. I would not hesitate to use Viator tours again in the future.
Perfect!! Even the weather, for which I wish I could credit Viator as well!
Great organisation and excellent timing. The guide was great too.
Ever aspect of the tour was excellent inparticular our guide who demonstrated a mass of knowledge and whose English was perfect. His demeanor and personality was very good. The whole tour was an unforgettable experience.
We had initially planned to visit Machu Picchu for two days: take the train from Cusco an, overnight in Aguas Calientes and head to the site the next morning. However, due to time constraints we decided to book the day trip on Viator. In retrospect I am glad we did:
Even during our short visit, Aguas Calientes left us underwhelmed; very touristy and annoyingly commercial. Second, the time that Viator allowed at the site, was more than enough. We are not archaeologists so the 3.5 hour timeframe gave us the opportunity to walk around and take pictures with great views. I recommend this excursion to people who do not want to spend an entire day and subsequently more money for hotels. I booked other excursions in Peru but the Viator tour stood out as the most organized. The pickup from the hotel was done in a timely fashion. Necessary explanations were provided at the train stations in Cusco and Aguas Calientes. Boarding the buses was done in an orderly fashion. Upon arrival to the site, we were assigned our tour guide. The restaurants where we redeemed our meal vouchers were the best in town.
I recommend Viator for the Machu Picchu excursion. I also, recommend taking the Vistadome train. The breathtaking views are well worth the upgrade
Took the stress out of traveling! We didn't have to worry about getting to the right train, figuring out the site, etc. Our guide on the train ride pointed out interesting sites, and our guide at Machu Picchu was very knowledgeable and focused on areas we were most interested in. GREAT TOUR!
The trip there was well organized by the local tour operator. The guide in Machu Picchu gave me a lot of information about Inca history and recent Peruvian history. HE and was very helpful. I enjoyed the trip and the visit.
great tour - very well planned- very professional staff all around
I recently visited Machu Picchu on a day tour and was extremely happy with the service. 100% of the planning and logistics were taken care of including transportation to and from the train station as well as bus and tour passes. The guide was very knowledgable and friendly. I loved it!
Great day. Well worth the money.
Our tour company was extremely organized!!!
Awesome. They were on time and the tour guide was very helpful.
They took the burden of booking the bus tickets(s), train ticket(s), the tickets into Machu Pichu all off us. At first, I was pretty flabergasted on what to do and I have 0 regrets signing up. It made the trip enjoyable!!
A scenic view to behold and remember even though the guide was not proficient
in English, everyone got by and understood all there is to know about Machu
It was very good indeed ! The tour was divided into 2 groups, one group comprised of the Spanish and the other English. Our Engish guide met us on top whilst the Spanish had a guide at the rail station. So the Spanish guide had explained everything before going up whilst the English group were lost.
Very good about coordinating all aspects of this trip. The only request would be clarifying that it doesn't matter if they are picking you up at a hotel or house. It didn't matter and they accommodated both. Job well DONE. Very good communication as well.
