The day starts very early in Cusco , maybe overnight in Ollantatambo might be a good idea. The arrangemants all worked well. Out guide was Wilbarth? who was excellent. Gave us much info and time to take photos.
. Only down side was long wait for bus upto site after train ride. More buses needed. Our guide was able to get us onto a bus back or we would have missed our train. The site is stunning.

It was an amazing experience and we would definitely do it again.
This trip was truly amazing. Having the opportunity to go to Machu Picchu in one day when you don't have much time, it's a great opportunity. The train journey is a bit long but the landscape is beautiful and the pay off of the day, is the view of Machu Picchu and all the history behind it. Don't miss the opportunity to book this tour and visit the city of the Incas! Sandra C.
Highly recommend the tour for those who are short with time.All was greatly organised with pick up from my hotel, train trip and a wonderful private guide in English.Machu Pichu is a life time experience!
We had an amazing day at Machi Picchu, and a wonderful experience with this Viator tour. Everything was very organized, from pick up to the hotel, to providing us with directions and the necessary tickets for the train, bus, Machu Picchu entrance fee ticket, an extremely knowledgeable and friendly tour guide who spoke very good English, as well as the same tickets and transportation all the way home. We would highly recommend this tour to others who only have one day to spend at Machu Picchu! It was so nice having all of the transportation and logistics arranged for you as part of this tour, and we got to see everything we wanted to see at Machu Picchu!
Amazing experience! It's a long day, but well worth it! The level of service is impecable from start to finish and everything is included. You don't have to worry about any transportation or attraction tickets and that's such a big relief when you have to take 4 bus rides and 2 train rides to get from Machu Picchu to Cusco! It's part of the magic of a beautiful, remote attraction!
This tour was absolutely amazing. It was not just the location that made it spectacular, it was our guide of Machu Picchu who really made this trip fantastic. I highly recommend this trip for those who are in a time crunch and are only able to make a day trip to Machu Picchu and Aguas Calientes.
The tour guide was, Jhon, was great. The directions were not very clear in the morning getting there, but all was good. Definitely would recommend this tour for anyone who is planning to go back on their own time. It lays a nice foundation of knowledge for future exploration.

Great tour. Guide was fantastic. Disappointed that we had to wait in a long line at end of day for bus ride back to train staton.
the best experience, the guide was very smart person, only I would like to have more time in Machupicho
nice place to relax and our guide was real professional and very nice guy.. way to go!
Very well run outfit, pick up from hotel and all transfers were on time.
The guides at different stages were all very professional, competent and friendly.
The cost of this tour is just slightly higher than if you add all the different components of the trip if you were to do the on your own, so it was absolutely worth it.
Do call the tour operators the moment you get into Cusco, so that your pick up can rearranged.
Highly, highly recommended,
I am very satisfied with this tour. Whatever depended on the tour company, was accomplished with the highest score. They picked me from the hotel at exact time, drove me to the train station, handed all tickets and instruction, and do the same on the way back. The guide Johnny was knowledgeable and humorous, and he cared about us until we boarded the train on the way back.
What I did no like about this tour is that of 15 hours total only 2 hours were dedicated to Machu Picchu itself. The other 13 hours were filled with waiting in lines and terribly slow transportation system, which can drive anybody mad. But this is the Peruvian experience. It's beyond the tour company's ability to fix this. I am very impressed how they manage to be on a schedule with so many bottlenecks in the Peruvian transportation system.
it was soo good! Alicia was our tour guide and she was very well known about all history and everything and she was cheerful too. Thanks to her we saw all hidden points of Machu Picchu! pickup from hotel and all other planing was good and they were so experienced and they didnt leave anybody back. Thank you Viajo Pacifico for our incredible trip!
The only complaint is lack of time! We only had one day, Johnny our viator tour guide was amazing, funny, interesting and very well informed. Everything ran really smoothly. We all loved it!
Everything was organized perfectly from the beginning to the end. I was impressed by every moment of the journey - the guide was funny and knew a lot of history, the walk was very entretaining, the views extraordinary. I woukd definitely recommend the service to anyone and I would go again if I could! Big thank you for making my dream come true!
This trip was well worth it. It started early in the morning 5:30am with a well-coordinated and on-time hotel pickup in Cusco. After the transfer to the train station, we took the observatory train with the windows in the roof. Although there was some condensation on the windows for a short part of the trip, it quickly dissipated and we could enjoy the dramatic mountain scenery that we passed during the 3.5-hour train ride to Machu Picchu. At the site, we were the only two English-speaking customers so we ended up getting our own guide, Katrina, who was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. After 2.5 hours at the site, we got our passports stamped with the Machu Picchu stamp and took the shuttles back to town where we had lunch. Then, on the train ride back to Cusco, the cabin attendants held a little fashion show fro entertainment considering it was dark outside. It was a long day but a trip well worth taking.
ended upi being just me and my brother on the tour so was a great price for a private tour. I guess we were lucky. but our guide was great. Only complaint is that the train is cramped and the bus ride to the train station and back is long and can be uncomfortable
I loved my trip!! As someone traveling by myself I appreciated that everything was organized and all of the guides were helpful and friendly. I will definitely use this company again. Thank you!
