The tour was organized and makes things as easy as they canKey points from our trip - If staying in Ollantaytambo is an option,do it! This would save you potentially hours of travel and waiting time if you are coming from Cusco Dont rely on the tour guides at Machu Picchu - ours was late & boring!
Everything perfect only too shirt time

All trip was organized very well, everything was on plan. Only one thing made me a bit upsad, all trip took 20h and just in Machu Picchu was about 2h time, almost no time to make good pictures because there were so many people there and guide was hurry up too much! After was 3h waiting in Aguas Calantes what is without sense... better was to stay that time in Machu Picchu

This was not an escorted tour and there was confusion with the person picking up the group. The guide met the group at the entrance of Machu Picchu, but the guide was not as thorough as other guides are, and I know because this was my second trip to this place. Still, nothing can take away the majestic views of Machu Picchu. The tour agent, Oswaldo, was very nice and very accomodating when I expressed my disappointment with the guide. He offered me a free Cusco city tour and indicated that the guide will no longer be working for the tour agency.
Amazing but frustrating

I had difficulty finding the right meeting point. Very poor communication prior to the actual tour. Attempted calls and WhatsApp messages. I finally got my meeting point at 11 o’clock at night. And had to be there at 3:50 in the morning
Awful. Do not waste your money or time on this tour

We started off our day being picked up at our hotel by our guide who gave us our train tickets then left mid bus journey. We then got on our train and we’re told to meet another guide at the other side which we did not know the name of. Once we got off the train our guide was nowhere to be seen so we spent ages walking around confused as to where they were. Then about 15 minutes later they appeared. We are then given our bus tickets to Machu Picchu from this new guide who then leaves once they have given you the tickets. You are told to meet your new guide at Machu Picchu who has a green flag. No name again. We then made our way to machu pichhu where there are hundreds of people and guides waiting outside all with the same coloured flag which made it difficult to find our one. Again we spent ages wondering around trying to locate our guide. After about half an hour we found him and what a waste of time that was. He was useless. We were rushed through photo opportunities of machu pichhu and told we are allowed five minutes before moving on. We ended up leaving our guide and moving round at our own pace. After this we headed for the train and arrived at our stop in Ollantaytambo and were to get our final guide and bus driver. But they never showed up. At this point it was dark and we had been searching for our guide for over half an hour. I tried to contact viator who did not reply for ages and when they did they said he was waiting which he was not. Luckily we had others in our group who spoke Spanish and were able to find us alternative transport home. However if we had not had those other members of the group to help we would have been stranded. Honestly do not waste your time or money on this tour. If you want to do a tour book it when your in Peru and save yourself some money.
Worst experience ever with the company that provided the service

We were provided $48.00 dollars for the bus transportation and taken to a local bus station for the out going and we had to seek our own return via public transportation... And best of it all we paid for a tour we never received.... worst experience ever

Our trip began very early and when we met our guide Richardo we've already traveled in a minibus and a train for 3 hours. Richardo was excellent with his knowledge of Andians and Machu Picchu experience. After the guided tour, I had the afternoon to walk around and go to the hot springs which was recommended by Richardo and it was awesome! I would like to only add that my return trip was little confusing catching the bus and train and the bus back to Cusco was not explained very well. I had to make my own way back from the train station looking for a bus to take me into Cusco.

Great tour, really enjoyed it. The only problem was they only pick you up if your hotel is in the very center and mine was not so I had to go to the central square and wait for their agent at 3am although the police were present there and I didn't feel threatened. Then they put you on minivan, take you to the railway station in Ollantaytambo, put you on a train that follows a very scenic route, then one of their agents meets you in Aguascalientes at the foot of the Machu Picchu mounatin and puts you on a bus that takes you to the summit where their guide meets you and guides you around Machu Picchu it was a very nice guy and a very informative tour. They repeat the same process to take you back to Cusco and drop you off near the main square where you have to call uber or a taxi which are plentiful or just walk to your hotel as most are nearby.

Machu Picchu is undoubtably worth a visit - for the nature, the history or even the personal photos. The tour planned out all the stages of getting from Cusco to Machu Picchu and back. The guide was responsive via text message in advance to confirm all the details. Our guide at Machu Picchu was great - giving a lot of history and information. The train travel was in the executive car and comes with delicious snacks and drinks while you overlook the gorgeous scenery. The only thing I wish that this tour had was a guide with you from start to finish, as it was a bit confusing how we get from one stage of the journey to the next.
