This was a very memorable tour and it was really worth the trip. The Inca site was amazing! The only concern is the possibility of high altitude sickness in Cusco where you have to stay a night in order to make the trip the next day to Machu Picchu.
I purchased a tour on Expedia and they had canceled on us one day prior to the tour and the main reason we were going to Peru is to see the lost city, then the tour on Viator came through! I was very pleased using the tour on Viator, they followed up and got the necessary information ahead of time for our Machu Picchu tour since we were not by a computer at all times. The tour guide called our hotel, letting us know they will pick us up at a certain time and they were punctual. The only hitch we had and not prepared for was the tour guide asked us to pay for the Machu Picchu admission (which is already included in the package tour) and the guide said he would pay us back after the tour...I didn't understand; however, after questioning the tour guide the admission was taken care of. The tour itself was absolutely great! I highly recommend staying a day/two at Machu Picchu, wish we had more time, for the short duration we were there it was breathtaking!
The guide was very experienced and good control of routing and timing so that we had ample time to look around but no rush.
This tour is beyond my expectation. Guide handed me an envelope with all the tickets that I will need for this tour. Good food was served in the Vistadome train. Good service overall.
Just amazing. There are 3 trains that leave and we were booked on the earliest, this only gave us 2.5 hours walking around Machu Picchu but to be honest it was all that was needed. I only had a day free and this was just a great way to do it.
A great day and well worth the early start. The train to Aguas Calientas was very slow, with great views of the countryside, valley and mountains, but the ultimate was the first view of Machu Picchu. Coming through the gate onto the terraces was very a special moment. Our guide gave our small group a very informative running commentary, and our 3+/- hours at the top was well worth the long day. Lunch was great back in AG and the just as slow train ride back to Cusco was pumped up by a Peru Rail fashion parade. Yes a long day but would do it all over again in a heart beat!
Amazing - Mr Jimmy (Salazar I think) was a fantastic guide. It was the best part of my entire trip. Well done!
Overall a great trip. Door to door service. If you have more time, I would do the 2 day trip that goes to the sacred valley. I would also do the sacred valley before you do Machu Picchu. Also, try to find a trip that goes in by the original way instead of the new way. Still amazing views, but the original entrance is even better.
I've never taken a tour before but this one was worth every penny. The entire day was completely stress free. The group was small and we could easily hear everything the guide was saying. Excellent!
Excellent tour, brillant tour guide, unforgetable experience. Everything was perfect, as always is with VIATOR.
One day wasn't enough for Machu Picchu!! Totally awesome, beautiful and peaceful!!! We had a very well informed tour guide,Jaimie Quispe Taracaya.he took us through the ruins explaining the history of Machu Picchu.
First rate experience with highly educated guides. Vistadome trainride included food entertainment and a fashion show. Perfect weather and comfortable transportation. Weather was great and the views sublime. Get in shape before the trip. Between the steps and the altitude, you need a lot of stamina. Awesome daytrip with great people. Britt
