The local tour company that Viator used was on top of their game! Everything went off without a hitch. Please be aware that it is the customers responsibility to book the air travel from Lima to Cusco! Lima is a fascinating city with more to do than the time allotted. Plan ahead, to see what is important to you. Note that Viator offers many different day tours. The same holds true for Cusco. Remember to be aware of the elevation and possibility of altitude sickness. The village of machu picchu is very small but I enjoyed the shops all geared towards tourists. An overnight in machu Picchu does not mean sleeping in the monument itself but in the village below. If you're a avid hiker a want to hold a mountains adjacent to the monument itself prebook!!! Many of these well out long before you arrive. I spent the extra day at the hot springs with a view of the mountains. The train ride was great and is run first class! Enjoy your trip!
This trip was everything as advertised. The reason I chose this particular tour was because of all the positive feedback from these reviews. So now here I sit just returning from this vacation and I will tell anyone reading this the same as all the other 5 star reviews. We felt safe the entire time, everyone we spoke with were friendly. The tour company was prompt and informative. The hotels and food were above average with no issues. The only advice on a negative tone from our experience is to not book your Lima to Cusco flight thru Peruvian airlines. They have older airplanes with older logistics. We got stuck in Lima an additional 24 hours because of the low cloud cover/rain in Cusco. Some of the other local airlines were still able to land. We lost 2 tours and 24 hours in Cusco. This is valuable info I wish I had known while planning this trip. The rest of this tour was simply amazing and I would do it all over again but there's just too many other jewels out there to be discovered. However, I do admit even tho it has been a week today since we returned that I can not get Machu Picchu out of my head. Experience of a Lifetime !
Great tour! Very well organised. You're not with the same group all the time so as a solo traveller this was great to meet people and also have some independence. Most of the tours are single day tours and you usually have the afternoon to do your own thing so I would organise different outings myself. Accommodation was excellent and the pick up service was very prompt. I felt super safe as a solo female traveller on this tour. The trip to Machu Picchu was fantastic! Put it on your bucketlist!
An amazing journey! Accommodation in Lima, Cusco and Aguascalientes was very clean, great buffet breakfasts in particular El Tambo 1 in Lima, all staff in the various hotels were very friendly and helpful. The hotels were very convenient to our interests in the cities. Viajes Pacifico were well organised to cope with the continuing stream of tourists visiting the many sites of interest provided in the tour. We felt supported, knew the goals of the day programs, and had our questions answered promptly. Machu Picchu was a spectacular lived experience, an amazing engineering feat. Through the knowledgeable guides we really appreciated the significance of the INCA achievement and its impact on Andean communities today. Thank you, Viator, it was a great decision to travel with you!
Travel to Machu Picchu is not easy trip the logistic involved is quite complicated but this tour offered by Viator made everything easy. The tour operator Viajes Pacifico, from picking up in LIM airport until dropping off at CUZ airport with boarding pass ready is nothing short of excellence in their service. My wife and I had a wonderful time to Machu Picchu!
This tour was amazing!
This tour was amazing!
Highly recommend. Everything was taken care of for us and there was enough down time to see everything we wanted as well. Thanks!
From the moment we landed in Lima until the sad day we left Peru, every detail was lavishly attended to by the tour operator and guides of Viajes Pacifico. All the tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable, with special kudos to Angel, Herman, and Jaime in Cusco and Machu Picchu. Our Lima guides were awesome, as well - unfortunately, I can't remember their names, but they pointed us in the direction of two outstanding restaurants, Punto Azul where we had the best ceviche ever, forever ruining us for ceviche anywhere else and Mangoes great food, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. In Cusco, we toured the old city, walked among the ruins of Saksaywaman, and we were taken to an alpaca wool factory where we got the finest alpaca garments at a fraction of the retail price. Then, the scenic train ride to Machu Picchu, where there was no question in anyone's mind why it is one of the Seven Wonders of the world - it's absolutely breathtaking, and you cannot take a bad picture! We opted to upgrade to the deluxe accommodations, which I highly recommend. I can't stress enough the timeliness and orderliness of the tour - so many moving parts that operated with the precision of a Swiss watch. Icing on the cake!
