The process was a little bit unorganized. I met with q tour guide the day before who gave me the rail tickets and park entrance tickets. The next day I was picked up by a taxi at 5:30 am to go to the train station. Once I got to Aguascalientes, I found another tour guide who stated that he would get my tickets for the bus and to meet him in 2 hours time. After 2 hours elapsed I met with the guide who then stated that we would wait another 45 minutes until we would catch a bus to Machu Picchu. On the way back, the train does not continue all the way to Cuzco it drops you off at Oyllantaytambo, where you will be picked up by q transfer service back to Cuzco. The ride back was very bumpy. Be prepared to spend a lot of free time in Aguascalientes until it’s time to enter the park. All of that set aside it was a beautiful trip with beautiful train ride.

Oswaldo did a great job putting together our tour in spite of many challenges with our schedule. We were met by where we were staying, transported to the train station, and then met in Aguascalientes for a trip to Machu Picchu. The tour we were given by Raul was very informative and it added a lot of context to what we were looking at. I recommend this tour to anyone looking to see Machu Picchu while staying in Cusco.

Our tour to Mach Picchu was beautiful. The scenery up and back was breathtaking and our time touring Machu Picchu was perfect. My only complaint was the process of transferring from the train to buses, which involved hundreds of people and Pedro, the person in charge, didn’t properly guide people and several of us got lost.

The pick-up at the hotel was 40 min late which is particulary annoying at 4am. Also, the driver didn't come to pick us up in the return at the train station at Ollantaytambo, we waited for 20min and then paid to some other minivan. Machu Picchu was great of course but the organisation was awful.

from the moment they did not want to wear the mask and protection they already put the group at risk ... you took too long to get out of the train station ... our car cannot wait too long for half an hour just for you Leave in Ollantaytambo, it is a long time, the car had to leave and you had to wait for the next turn ... they put a complaint without foundation

This was a great experience. I am 72 years old, over weight, bad knees and I made it all the way to the top and back down again. My son, daughter-in-law, daughter, 11 yr old grandson and two friends were here with me. My grandson was like a llama or alpaca going up the pathways, me I was slow but made it. We took great pictures and our guide Edwin made sure we took time to truly enjoy the beauty and immense splendor.

Book this tour NOW ;) This was a wonderful experience and It could have been perfect with one change. Keep in mind this tour is all day. Your tour guide will meet you the day before to explain all, give tickets etc. Don’t try to plan anything else on this same day. You will work with a couple different people during this experience. I had no problems communicating with anyone I can into contact with because I speak Spanish. I did notice some others having a little bit of trouble. There was one point were some of the guides seemed a little bit confused on which group to take. You go from taxi to train to bus to Machu Picchu so travel light. Bring a rain jacket even if you think it won’t rain because it will I promise you. There the tour guide Daniels knowledge and kindness was wonderful. You have time to take photos and all. One you leave the train from Ollanyantamo you take another small bus if you are staying in Cusco , then you find your own transportation back to your hotel . This tour was wonderful . Don’t forget face Sheild and two masks is required on train and bus. Enjoy and book.

This trip was perfect for first time visitors. Oswaldo came to our hotel the night before to explain how the day would go. All train and bus tickets were bought in advance which made it very easy. The trains were comfortable and the tour guide at Machu Picchu was thorough and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour!

The company did a great job arranging the tour to Machu Picchu on the short notice. Everything was organized very well for the competitive price. The guide was knowledgeable and also made the great pictures for us. He also recommended a great restaurant to have a dinner prior to our train back. We enjoyed our tour - great experience. It was a little bit exhausting but definitely worth it!

My friend and I spent over $300 each for this tour. We chose this tour because of the inclusions and the english speaking guide. We were picked up from our hotel in Cusco at 3:45 am by a man who spoke no english. He walked us outside and pointed to a car, motioning us to get inside. We were then taken in a small car with two others to the train station, the driver was a different man who again spoke no english. Upon arrival in the town of Machu we were greeted by a tour guide who handed me a phone. On the line was a man named Richard who told me he needed me to go to the Inca Rail counter and change my train ticket home to an early time as it was scheduled for 9 pm. The time written near the printed time on our ticket was 2:30 pm. Richard instructed us to change the time to the one written on the ticket, and that if there was a charge he would reimburse us. We paid 100 sols total for the change. We were the only two in our group that had this issue. After changing our train time we waited a half an hour before we were given any further instruction as the woman who handed me the phone disappeared. When we found her again she explained to us that we would not have enough time to see Machu and get back on the train. It was barely 8 am at this point. She told us OUR tickets did not allow us into the ruins until noon (you are given three separate tickets, one which includes the actual entry to the ruins). So why were we picked up 8 hours before our actual "in time"? Had this been explained we would have been prepared with more money or just stayed in the town if we were to be there for 17 hours. And why were we told to change our train to a time that wasn't the right one? After hanging around the city that was undoubtedly beautiful, we became stressed and unsure of if we would have time to see the ruins as train tickets sell out quickly this time of year. Richard then called a man named Carlos who found me and explained to me that he got new tickets for us for 7 pm- and that when we got back to Cusco he would give us our refund. We spent as much time as we could in Machu Picchu and went to the train station at 6:10 to board. Our train was almost two hours late (probably due to weather) and at this point our "guide" was nowhere to be seen. Once we finally arrived back to the train station we were greeted by another man with a sign with my name on it. We got on the bus thankfully first, because three of our group members couldn't get on because they had overbooked the ride back to Cusco. Richard was nowhere to be seen when we arrived to Cusco, no one from the tour company has contacted me about the extra money we had to pay, and we ended up getting ripped off by a cab driver as the tour did not include hotel drop off.

Bottom line, you do not need a guide to go to Machu. It would have been ten times better for us to go alone, and probably would have saved us $150 USD each.

Obviously a must-see, so the question is not weather to see it but how. Many organised trips will take you from Cusco to Machu Picchu and back again in one day. This makes for an extremely long day. If you are time poor this may well be your only option but if you are fortunate enough to have more time may I recommend a two-day tour. Two day tours can be over $500 which may seem like a lot of money but the one-day tours are $400 - $500 anyway, so you are getting better value and you may also get to see Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu town) which is a gorgeous place with Hot Springs.

The drive from Cusco to Ollantaytambo is two hours, then the train from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu town) is one and a half hours, then the line to get onto the bus to Machu Picchu is half an hour (give or take, some people say longer) and then the bus to Machu Picchu is half an hour. There are obviously wait times in between these transfers as well. By the time you get to Machu Picchu you have the larger crowds and the heat to contend with. As you will imagine, it is uphill walking in full sun so heat is an issue. Then you have to get all the way back to Cusco!

So I would recommend the two-day tour because it’s not as rushed and you get the added bonus of spending some time in Machu Picchu town.

Other practical notes are that you need to show your passport every time you enter Machu Picchu. Your ticket allows you to enter Machu Picchu three times on the day so in effect you can exit Machu Picchu twice during the day. There are no toilets inside Machu Picchu so you will have to exit to use the toilets. Toilets cost 1 Sol so have a coin ready.
