I extremely pleased with this tour. The staff were very helpful and catered to all of our requests. This is a private tour, and the best way to see Machu Picchu. Why? Because it is private, you are not waiting on 30 other people to finish looking at a rock before you can move on. Also, we were able to customize our tour adding the Waynapicchu hike and time to spend in Machu Picchu town before our train ride back. The hike has to be arranged in advance as only a few tickets are allowed per day. The agency took care of everything for us so all we had to do was hike. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He took very good care of us the entire trip. I was so impressed with this company that I also booked the Sacred Valley tour and the Huamantay Lake tour with this group. All completely private tours with the same guide and driver for three days. Again, this was the way to see Peru. The guide would stagger our sites so that we would visit places before/after the large busses had left so we had many of these places to ourselves with no crowd. This group was extremely professional and took amazing care of us for the entirety of our trip.

We booked the Machu Picchu tour, and the agency connected with us a few days later. We were able to customize our tour, adding the hike to Waynapicchu mountain to our trip. When we arrived in Cusco, someone from the tour agency connected with us the day before and came to our hotel. They gave us the tickets for the next day and explained to us how everything would flow the following day. The next morning, a private car and driver arrived at the hotel and took us to the train station. Once in Machu Picchu town we connected with our guide Willy. He was very knowledgeable and explained the site giving us a thorough private tour of Machu Picchu. After the tour, we commenced our hike to the top of Waynapiccu mountain. You have to arrange for this hike in advance as only a few tickets are available every day. This tour agency took care of everything, making sure we had time at the Machu Picchu site as well as the Mountain. After the hike we reconnected with our guide and spent time in town shopping and visiting the hot springs which felt great after a long hike. After words we were guided back to the train station four our timed departure back to Ollantayambo where our driver was waiting for us. Everything was very well planned and we were back in time to have dinner at our hotel.

I cannot stress enough how impressed I was with this tour company and the guide and driver. Certainly one of the best I've used in my travels.

We went for this tour during our visit to Cusco and Machu Picchu. Very Well Organized and relaxed tour of the seven wonder. Tania came a day before and provided us all the details, tickets etc.The tour guide Cathay was awesome and was very patient, no rush and took a lot of pictures for us, The driver picked us up at 5:30 am and dropped us to the train station. Tania had booked for us the Vistadome Inka Rail which was fantastic. Cathay was waiting for us at the bus station and guided us at the Machu Picchu Site which was approximately 3 hours. Lunch was not included but she had recommended one of the restaurants after the tour ( around 1 pm ) which was very nice. It was cloudy day and lot of fog which cleared away and we could see beautiful views of Machu Picchu. Most importantly, this is a private tour. Most other tours we saw would leave early and drop off late.The duration was just perfect. We were back by 7pm. Tania met us at the end of the tour and got us a few goodies and that was sweet. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would recommend it!!

There are many options for tours from Cusco to Machu Picchu, however you should just go ahead and book this tour.

Our tour coordinator Tania was incredible to work with. She made the entire experience really easy and was incredibly responsive. She was very communicative and answered any questions immediately.

Our tour guide Wily was a lot of fun and really knowledgeable. He provided great information, took us to great spots, and took tons of great photos.

I can’t recommend them enough. Everything from airport transport, train tickets, bus tickets, Machu Picchu tickets and reservations were reserved, coordinated, and perfectly executed.

What a wonderful day! Matchu Piccu Peru travel took great care of us . Everything was perfectly coordinated. From the pick up at the hotel till the drop off.
A special thanks to our guide Willy! He picked us up from the train and gave us a private tour of Machu Picchu. He is a native to Peru ( Quechua) and knew so much and told great stories. Some even personal, making it all the more special! Highly recommend asking for Willy if you’re thinking of visiting Machu Picchu :)

The trip was amazing, very well organized and personalized. The guide Willy is an amazing person with great knowledge and very friendly. Thanks to him we were able to be the first ones that entered Machu Picchu and saw the sunrise. We took plenty of pictures with no one at the background, he knows all the best spots and how to avoid the queues. It was a really unforgettable experience and I highly recommend it.

Willy is a native Inca from a small village 16,000 feet in the mountains. He moved to Cusco at age 17 by himself. He taught himself Spanish, earned the equivalent of a GED by 21 and two years ago taught himself English. His knowledge of the Inca is personal. His English is fantastic even though he is concerned with his word choices. We loved the tour so much we invited him for a late lunch to learn even more about him and his family. If you are planning to visit Machu Picchu, definitely request Willy as your guide!

Had an excellent tour. The guide Willy was so attentive and caring that I felt very comfortable. It was his first job after the 9-month interruption due to Covid-19. Also Tania from the office was very helpful and always prompt in replying as I was causing them a lot of difficulties due to constant changes from the airlines. I can only recommend them!

From someone who’s never been to Peru, planning a vacation was scary to say the lease. Thankfully I was able to connect with Tania from Machu Picchu Peru Travel. She helped me setup every step of the way from the arrival to Cusco to Machu Picchu and to the top of Waynapicchu! Tania helped me get a personalized tour experience with Mr Willy who didn’t disappoint at all. He was knowledgeable, patient and if an avid hiker is looking for a guide that can keep up, he’s your guy! Thank you Tania and Willy for all your help!

My first time in Machu Picchu , and I had great expectations. I was picked up promptly from the hotel by Percy, (very friendly guy), After the long train ride on the Inca Rail train, I arrived in Aguas Calientes at 9 am. I was told I would join my tour group there, but the person that picked me up at the station told me that I would have a different guide and I was supposed to wait at the plaza . I waited for about an hour, and when I finally see the new guide, he told me to wait for another guide, so I was switched again. I didn't leave the town until around 11 am. We finally arrived in MP at 11:30 am. My new guide was unaware that my entrance ticket was for the morning session. I only had 30 minutes to get in!, we he realized this, he told me to go on and enter on my own while the rest of the group , which had afternoon tickets, was using the restrooms and taking their time.
So there I was by myself, taking pictures and trying to make the best of it,
I eventually found the group an hour later, but the rest of the tour was also a disappointment. The guide barely explained things to us, also he would skip important places when they were occupied by other groups. After an hour and a half he left us on our own. We were advised to leave the site early enough so we wouldn't miss our train back to Cusco.
The return train suffered mechanical issues half way .We were stranded for an hour and a half. We didn't make it back until well after 9pm. (We were supposed to arrive at 7:30 pm), Thankfully my driver Percy waited for me. (Thank you, Percy).
He waited for me in the rain while other drivers left.
Machu Picchu is a wonderful place and I wish I would have had a more positive experience. I think every paying customer deserves to be treated with consideration and respect , no matter if it is a single person or a group.
I did not have a way of communicating with the Company's representative, Tania, during the day, since my phone didn't work in Peru.

When we were planning our bucket list trip to Machu Picchu we wanted to make sure it was a memorable event that was trouble free and gave us the best experience.

We need extensive research on how to have the longest stay in the site, best way to get there and how to get a personalized experience.

We were warned about scams, poor and unscrupulous travel operators in Peru.

We booked via Aviator who sub contracted to “Mach Picchu Peru travel .com”. My suggestion is to book directly with the mppt.com.

We booked the private Machu Picchu full day tour from Cusco on vista down train. Tour operator code 187262

They were extremely professional. They contracted us a week before to give us logistics. They met us a day before with an envelope with tickets and gift for the kids.

The entire trip worked like clock work. A spacious mini bus with a pleasant driver collected us on time from the hotel and drove us to the train station.

The visa train was luxurious with coffee and cakes while we traveled through the mountains with amazing views.

The guide collected us at the train station in Aguas Calientes and guided us into bus and up to the entrance.

The site is now well managed with only one way to walk through the site, so there is no chaos. Be aware though take pictures all the way as you can’t go back. The view was Awe inspiring even though it rained a bit.

Only negative was we felt that the guide was rushing us.

Lessons learnt : it’s not cold in Dec so no jackets and gloves required. Make sure you have a rain cover and water proof bag. Don’t need much food as the 4 hours fly by so just light snacks are fine. Ensure you push the guide to spend at least 4 hours in park ( 3 hours with them and stay another hour to take in the experience by yourself near the exit. )
