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!
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!

Viajes Pacifico did an excellent job, always on time and great tour guides. Highly recommended.
Absolutely outstanding. Viajes Pacifico are an absolutely wonderful company who made every bit of this holiday hassle free. Initially, I was a bit nervous about booking such a complicated tour on the internet rather than through an agent but when I got to LIma airport and met the smiling representative I realised I had nothing to worry about. Their was continuous, close communication between the company, ourselves and the service providers and everything was superbly organised. The accommodation was more than comfortable and located in safe, central areas. The tours were highly informative, had passionate guides that spoke outstanding English and provided us with wonderful glimpses into the history and culture of Peru. The airport transfers were safe, punctual, hassle free and accompanied by an English speaking guide. Excellent value for money. I will definitely travel with this company again!
I love it, to me, it's trouble-free as a single traveler.
I was picked up once I got off the flight and they have a guide and a driver to take care of me even it's just an airport drop off.
The guides ALL OF THEM! are friendly, polite, and at the same time, I had enough free time to just walk around, explore and enjoy the cities. I would highly recommend : -
From beginning to end the whole experience was amazing. We were extremely fortunate to be the only 2 in our group for the organized tours. The drivers, guides and accommodation was perfect and met our needs. I cannot say enough about the guides....extremely knowledgeable, passionate about their country and history! They recant the same stories every time but for each tourist seeing and hearing about their country for the first time....they make it so special. Thank you for making our trip memorable!!
Everything went beautifully! From the initial airport pickup to the end-of-tour airport drop off. Our first-class hotels were excellent and included breakfasts were indeed first class. The tours and guides were excellent, too. Traveling to Machu Picchu involves several modes of transportation, and our tour operator handled all the details with great care and precision.
excellent tour except for one minor exceptions. The hotel in Aguas Calientes checkout time is at 930 AM. I have never travelled anywhere around the world where guests are kicked out at such earl time! This should changed. Or the travelers need to be informed in advance, so other arrangements can be made. Otherwise, the staff provided excellent service from beginning to end of tour. I will use you again, definitely. Thanks.
WE had a great experience, our local company Viaje Pacificio was excellent too.
7-Day Lima and Cusco Tour with Overnight at Machu Picchu
This being my first time to travel in South America, i did not know what to expect. I went on this trip solo and was a bit nervous, having read and heard about potential dangers of traveling in Peru. Yet, thanks to Viajes Pacífico VP and the people of this awesomely beautiful country, i experienced one of the best trips of my life!
Unfortunately, my review of this tour didn't fit within the 2000 character limit of this page. If you'd like to read my full review and see some of my pictures from this fantastic tour, please visit my blog.
You may find it under construction at first, as this journey is still fresh at the time of this posting of my review but i will do my best to update and complete as time allows.
Here i wish to thank: Roberto, Teofilo, Olinda, Pavel, Jorge, Vida, Americo, German, Daniel, Sandra, Carlos, Jaime, and everyone who works for Viajes Pacífico. i commend you for being conscientious, friendly, knowledgeable, courteous and entertaining!
My time on the 7-day tour of Lima, Cuzco and Machu Picchu was most positively memorable. I would readily sign up for this tour again, and bring friends and family with!
From start to finish, Viajes Pacifico carefully and conscientiously guided me along my journey. I had set out with the intention to discover the marvels and mysteries of ancient civilizations in Peru, especially that of the Inca, and experience the culture of this sacred land. I was on a budget and limited timeframe, so i knew this would be a challenge in only seven days!
Now that journey is the recent past, and i feel like i have lived several new lifetimes and received a very positive, personal transformation. Muchas Gracias Viajes Pacífico! Que nos vemos bien pronto!!
Thanks for reading--i wish you all safe, rewarding travels!
Perfect tour for travelers who don and #39;t want to worry about transportation/accomodation, enjoy plenty of free time with some tours around the cities and amazing site of Macchupichu! Very well organized tour operator, with punctuality and good communication. Upgrade option is worth it.
All in all I would highly recommend this tour! We had a bit of a mix up with the buffet lunch which we are still trying to reconcile with the company but other than that the tour guides are what honestly made this tour so amazing. If you are interested in a wonderful experience- this is definitely the tour to do it. Ursula, Carlos, Hamilton, and so many more made this exceptional trip! Would definitely do it all again if I could.
I was very impressed with the tour guides. They were very professional , knowledgeable and caring. They treated each of us as individuals. They took the time to make sure that all of us were where we were supposed to be. They were prompt and very courteous . It was a wonderful experience!
This tour was amazing! We were met and guided at every stop. The accommodations, guides and attractions exceeded our expectations. We also had down time to explore on our own....a perfect combination. Viator tours rock!!!!
Could not have gone smoother! Notes and texts left me with no guessing as to times. What a friendly set of people. Thank you all.
I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed this vacation. Viator made this, literally, a perfect week. It was exactly the right amount of assistance - someone to pick me up at the airport, a few well-timed and informative tours - but also left me plenty of time to do my own thing.
This was a well-balanced and complete tour. It was well-balanced in that there was free, independent time to explore on your own. Complete - for the activities and amenities included. The first class upgrade is worth the increase in price, including hotel accommodations an entertaining train ride to Aguas Calientes, the picturesque town before ascending to Machu Pichu. The provider provided daily messages to the hotel for your daily agenda. A note - There are three locales 2 times in Cusco on this tour, pack light and for the Aguas Calientes Machu Pinchu portion pack for the overnight, only. The guides? The were very helpful as well as informative.
I am super impressed!
This was an incredibly well orchestrated trip. From airport pick-ups to tour pick-ups everyone was always perfectly on time and friendly. I was greeted by name and with a handshake. The hotels were well above average and the included breakfasts were delicious with nice variety. I definitely recommend the upgraded-package option. The tours included impressive destinations and informative tour guides. I like that each tour involved a different guide and different fellow travelers. Love the country, the people, the history, the architecture and the ultimate destination, Machu Picchu left me breathless. Truly a world wonder, the setting is of a scale reminiscent of the Grand Canyon.
Viator you did an amazing job, thank you.
