I am planning a trip with my family to visit Peru in August 2013. The tips on TA was great and I have booked most of my trip.
I am unsure about MP. I learned from one of the thread here at TA that I can book the ticket at cuscocity.com and train ticket is easy. How about the private guide at MP? Is it easy to hire one at the gate? I was told August is high season and might be risky. Do I need to prebook the bus ticket from Aguas Calientes to MP? I would like to get on the 1st bus at 5:30 am for the sunrise. Should I do the guided tour first or hike the Huaynapicchu first? If I do the hike first, how to get a guided tour for the citadel after?
Any advise would be appreciated.
