The site was amazing as we expected. I initially started to plan the logistics for our trip. I’m so glad I went with the tour. There are a lot of moving parts and this allowed me to just relax and enjoy the day trip. Our guide was amazing. The passion he has for his history and culture was evident. Our nine-year-old daughter was with us in addition to a few elderly. The breaks were perfectly planned to allow time to regroup between climbing. Highly recommend!!!
So, I took this trip FOR MY BIRTHDAY and it was lovely.
I got to the Viajes Pacifico office at 3:30 a.m. ouch and from there we just the driver and myself took a winding road up to Ollantaytambo. I literally thought I was going to meet my Maker that entire ride up there...but hey, Peru drivers!
Once I arrived there, two representatives took me to the train station and then it was off to Machu Picchu! The train ride was fine. Noisy since there were a bunch of kids, but other than that the Expedition train was rather uneventful, but it had beautiful views!
I arrived at the MP train station and then we waited for the rest of our group to arrive. Once everyone was together, we boarded a bus to MP. I was even able to get my passport stamped with the MP stamp!
Our tour guide Hector was amazing! He was so informative and went above and beyond to be your personal photographer. The group even sang happy birthday to me. We saw llamas up close and personal and even got to touch them as they walked around. Being in MP was incredible. Hector was with us every step of the way and it felt like we were up there for HOURS.
The line back to the bus took an hour, but once on the bus, I got to sit next to the driver and head back down to the MP train station. We had lunch which we had to pay for at a restaurant in Aguas Calientes and then Hector departed from us. The lunch was fine and filling. The train ride back to Cusco was fine despite some delays.
This trip was great and I highly recommend it to anyone else.
The tour was wonderful! Great value for all the we got. Very organized, small group tour of Machu Picchu (8 people). The guide was wonderful, funny, and knew all the history. She gave us plenty of time to take pictures and offered many times to take great pictures for us. We choose the 360 train option, it was comfy and offered great views. Small meals/snacks were provided along with hot beverages. Would reccomens to my friends!
This tour was great! Our tour guide Victor was very knowledgeable and took us to the best spots to take pictures. He explained the history of Machu Picchu and had pictures to supplement!

Our trip to Machu Picchu from Cusco was amazing, they are very organised and punctual, the guide was excellent , he was very well prepared . I strongly recommend this tour.
Machu Picchu is just beautiful, the tour guide was very knowledge and everything was well organized.
I would recommend people to stay overnight in Machu Picchu area as the transportation from Cusco will take about 9-10 hours, leaving you 2-3 hours to visit Machu Picchu.
Reasonable pricing considering all that is included. The Vistadome train was amazing, our tour guide Hector was the absolute best, and overall was a very safe, reliable and wonderful way to see Machupicchu in a day.
This was a great trip, very well organized. The tour guider was very nice, friendly and knowledge. He gave us an excellent introduction about the history of Machu Picchu at the top of the mountain, and answered all our questions. It was just like I was in a field trip to Machu Picchu, listening to a professor's interesting lecture. I highly recommend the tour.
Extremely organized. Since I was traveling alone, I was concerned initially as I had not received an email with the time for pick up at the hotel, but as I arrived late on Friday night in Cusco, they had a note for me with the receptionist at hotel with the details for the next morning. In every stop there was someone waiting for our group. We had plenty of time to walk around monuments and the Aguas Calientes afterwards. I would strongly recommend this tour if your time is limited like mine was...
My husband and I went on the tour on May 22. The Company didnt send me a separate email advising the pick up time until I made two phone calls. We were picked up from Sonesta Hotel Cusco at 4:25am. There were 10 of us in this tour. The trip was well organized. One of the staff will hand you an envelope containing all the tickets required for the day at the beginning of the trip Remember to bring Passports. It took 2 hours bus ride from Cusco to Ollantaytambo. The road journey was very bumpy. We took the Perurail Vistadome train which departed at 7:43am. There are large windows which gave the best view of the valley. Drink and light snack were served on board. The train ride took 1.5 hours to reach Aguas Calientes, followed by a 25 minutes bus to the entrance of Machu Picchu.
Our tour guide, Abbon was very good. He spoke very good English, and gave us information on this huge ancient city in a simple and easy to understand manner. He didnt rush us. He gave us enough time at each location to take the best photos. We spent 3 hours inside. I feel good tour guide deserved tips from everyone.
Even we were split into two groups while on the way down to the town. He waited for us there at the bottom of the mountain to say goodbye to us, and reminded us the time to be at the train station. We were given about 3 hours to explore Aguas Calientes.
Our returned trip departed at 4:43pm to Cusco Poroy station, which took 4 hours but there was a performance, fashion show on the return trip.
