    This tour was amazing and we highly recommend going with Jaime. He spoke English very well and was very knowledgeable and thorough with his explanation of Machu Picchu and the Incas in general as my husband and I had very little knowledge of such. He was our professional photographer and knew the places to go for the amazing pictures! He was also very patient as we had to take lots of breaks in between to rest due to altitude.

    LOVED this tour! Our tour guide hector was the BEST! he took amazing photos and spoke really good English so we were able to understand and listen to all the history of Machu Picchu. He was Andean so was able to give personal experiences and insight of the history of the Incas. He recommended a delicious place to eat for lunch called Chullos which was also amazing. He was really nice & knowledgable of the Machu Picchu history and gave us translations of a lot of the words. Overall loved it!!

    Awesome tour guide. We loved every minute. Don't hesitate to book. It wasn't that difficult of a hike but it wasn't real easy. You must do it! We didn't climb the rock, but we got to the top of the main part.

    Machu Picchu is better with a Private Guide

    Tip #1...get a private tour - splurge, after all, this is one of the wonders of the world! Tip #2...go early. We chose the 6 am tour, which is when Machu Picchu opens. That way, less crowds and people in your photos; you can usually beat the possible rain that may happen later morning or afternoon; and you can experience Machu Picchu in its peaceful state! Tip #3...request Jaime Quispe Taracaya with Viejas Pacifico as your tour guide! Jaime was wonderful! He met with us the night before our tour to firm up our plans, leaving nothing to chance. He meets you at your hotel before the tour, walks with you to the bus stop, helps with showing our tickets to minimize our stress, points out tips to prepare and during the tour...like the best places to view or take photos. Jaime even took our picture, so that we had professional-looking memories of our tour/visit. Of course, Jaime has been a guide at Machu Picchu for over 15 years so he has the knowledge and answers to your questions too! Lastly, recommend taking two days for your tour (yes, that is two private tour dates), just in case the weather does not cooperate the first day, and better yet, you can tour the upper part on Day 1 and the lower part on Day 2! Excellent experience, made better by Jaime with Viejas Pacifico!

    Anita was so wonderful, nice, knowledgeable, and overall a perfect tour guide. She took amazing photos to help us commemorate the experience and taught us valuable history. She even guided us from the train station to our hotel before the tour began and also helped us purchase our bus tickets for the following day. We were a bit worried about having the full experience amidst the pandemic but it was actually even better that imagined. We had the mountain basically to ourselves, Peru has taken precautions, and great tour guides like Anita make sure you get to enjoy it fully.
