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.

The tour is amazing!!! The transportation is great and well organized. The guide is English speaking and has a good knowledge of history. Its a long and active tour, a lot of walking up and down the stairs. Thats why its important to have a good rest the night before, have comfortable shoes!

The tour is excellent and Machu Picchu is a magical spot, but I want to compliment the local agents Osvaldo and David, for their professionalism and attention. This is a trip where a tour is almost mandatory if you want everything to happen in time, and a guide will help you to understand the Incan culture.
I totally recommend it.

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.

It was a foggy day at the beginning, but then it cleared up late in the afternoon. Tour group was let on their own. I learned through other people's stories and their tour guides.

Although getting up at 3am was unpleasant, the tour was well organized and presented. Our tour guide, Richard, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We walked all around the Machu Picchu ruins and had lots of time to further explore the park afterwards. Make sure to bring a few layers of clothing and water.

The day before the tour a man came to our hotel unannounced, luckily we were there to receive him. In any case he provided us with important tour information. After his visit we both felt secure about the tour because before this we hadnt hear anything from the tour company. The man told us we needed to be ready between 3:30 to 4:00am the following morning to be picked up at our hotel. We were picked up a little after 4am. Subsequently we picked up other passengers,,, including friends of the driver which I found strange. The driver picked up people who were not a part of the tour and gave them rides to their homes, I assume. This caused us to barley make our train ride to Aguascalientes. The train ride went smooth. Once we arrived to Aguascalientes we got with our group and the tickets were purchased/redeemed. While waiting for this to be executed all of our group were just standing around waiting for our next directions. Finally after about 40 minutes we were told to go wait in line to get on the bus that would drive us up to Machu Picchu. We asked how long the wait would be and they told us 45mintues. We ended up waiting 2 hours, by this time it was passed 11am. We finally made it to the entrance of Machu Picchu,,,only to wait yet another hour for a specific tour guide to be done with his previous tour. I found out later that other guides were available to guide us through Machu Picchu, however the lady who was giving us direction wanted to wait for this specific guide. By the time we entered Machu Picchu it was close 1 in the afternoon. The tour would take 2 hours to complete. As directed the day before, we needed to be back at the train station by 3:20pm, to catch our 4:12pm train departure. To say the least my husband and I had to cut our tour short, we did not get the full tour due to time constraints. We left the tour at exactly 1:55 in the afternoon to be able to make it on time to catch a bus ride back to the train station. When we exited Machu Picch
