We had a great time from start to finish, thanks to our passionate, knowledgeable tour guide, Gary, and the lovely driver, Roman.
We requested for a 6-days, private tour, with 2 days for each of the city: Cusco, Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. All the site seeing, transportation, communication for those 6 days was perfectly taken care of. Gary's amazing wealth of Inca knowledge and Andean culture have turned all the key sites into a beautiful yet tragic painting of history. Along the way, It was truly wonderful how Gary not only shared with us about history of the sites, but also about animal/livestock, special plant species, and the way of life. The experiences we had with the tour and with Peru are truly amazing and will be remained with us forever. We definitely recommend this company, which is owned and operated by the Peruvian themselves.

We booked a 6 person private bus tour which picked us up from our hotel and took us all to the various sites. Booking with Machu Pichu Latin America was very easy and Fredi was very accommodating with adding a second excursion the night before it was set to begin. He even met with us around 8PM in our hotel lobby to finalize the itinerary for a second hiking trip.

Our guide Gary (Garcia) was energetic, friendly, and incredibly knowledgeable about the Inca and colonial history of Machu Pichu and the Sacred Valley. The guide and driver were always on time and kept us on schedule without feeling we were being rushed. Gary also always knew the best times to visit places and the best locations for pictures.

Overall we had great trips and I would recommend others book with Machu Pichu Latin America.

Customer service with Machu Picchu Latin America is outstanding. The other reviewers have all mentioned this before, and I just want to say it again that they really take care of all our needs. We had the great fortune of having Gary as our guide for the Moray and Salinas de Maras tour, and also the two day tour of Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. Gary was only supposed to be our guide for the Sacred Valley part of the tour, however on the day of there was a train strike (5/19) and we were not able to take the train from Ollantaytambo to Agua Caliente. Fredi, the owner of the company, instead arranged for Gary and our driver Ramon to accompany the three of us passengers all the way to Santa Teresa in a very comfortable van. Gary then guided us to walk the six miles along the train track into Agua Caliente (with lovely scenery along the way), just so we could still visit Machu Picchu the next day. Gary really took care of everything the two days he spent with us, checking us into a very good hotel, arranging dinner, meeting us in the hotel to take us to the bus station in the morning, and guided us in Machu Picchu, then arranging lunch before putting us on the train back to Ollantaytambo. When we stepped off the train, Gary and Ramon were already there waiting to take us back to Cusco. Even though we couldn’t tour the Secret Valley due to the train strike, we had a perfect day in Machu Picchu including climbing the very tough yet very rewarding Montaña Machu Picchu, and it was largely thanks to Gary. Gary’s passion for the mountains is also very contagious. It really made us want to come back to do the Inca Trail one day. To make it short, I highly recommend this agency if you want your Machu Picchu experience to be hassle free.

First, The Itinerary was on point! No hiccups throughout which is outstanding in itself considering the complex coordination of transportation that included vans, trains & buses plus a very decent accommodation at Aguascalientes for an overnight stay for my family. I highly recommend upgrading the train ride to the Vistadome and the admission tickets to Pisac and Ollantaytambo ruins which both sites build up to Machu Picchu the following day.

Second, our guide was key that enriched our experience with history, agriculture, culture and his passion ensured we were completely satisfied with respect to all the senses. Michael introduced the Choclo, a must try for everyone. He shared his local knowledge of plants, architecture, food and he had thorough knowledge of Inka ruins; and he definitely knew where the breath taking views were to take priceless pictures with my family and to share with friends.

A complete turnkey service from Cusco. Simply get to Cusco and book your hotel/AirBNB and hand it over to Machu Picchu Latin America and prepare for an amazing experience that will exceed your expectations.

Thank you Michael and Fredi for the priceless memories and keeping my family safe.

We appreciate you!

Everything from booking to execution was flawless.

Once we booked we were contacted by email/WhatsApp to make sure all our questions were answered. We were given a very detailed itinerary to help us understand what was coming up. This was a turnkey tour all we had to do was show up and enjoy.

Our tour guide Bernardo went out of his way to make sure everyone in the group was comfortable and made all the necessary arrangements for our luggage to be secured so we can enjoy our time. With altitude sickness slowing us down Bernardo was extremely patient and supportive.

If you’re looking for a Machu Picchu tour, I highly recommend working with Machu Picchu Latin America tours and Bernardo as his knowledge and kindness makes the trip more enjoyable.

Some of the downfalls of tours is that it becomes too generic and robotic. This was NOT the case for our tour. We were promptly picked up from our hotel in Cusco in the morning. We were in a group of 8 people and our tour guide, Miguel (Michael) was so genuine and warm throughout. The stops that we took were all wonderful - from feeding alpacas, seeing a rescued condor, visiting baby alpaca shops, and meeting family owned diamond shops, not only did we get to explore the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu, but we were able to absorb a lot of Peru's many culture and history. Miguel was so passionate to share about his heritage and culture, and I love that so much in any tour that I take.

We had lunch in Urubamba at a buffet, and cost 65 soles (not including drinks). From there, we drove to Ollantaytambo. Before boarding our train, we hiked up the Archaeological Park, which, believe it or not, was more challenging than Machu Picchu. Miguel shared with us about rock formation representing the Inca God.

We stayed at Hotel Ferre in Aguas Calientes and got a lovely room with a view of the stream. The room was loud from the stream. It may not be a cup of tea of some, but it was certainly a great night sleep for me.

One thing I would change with the tour for Machu Picchu is to add an extra hour in Machu Picchu. When we got back to Aguas Calientes, there was so much time to spare before we had to board our train back to Ollantaytambo.

What really got me emotional was when Michael said how thankful he is that we chose this tour, as he said one thing I will never forget: "This gives us hope". We all know by now that COVID truly affects the hospitality and tourism industry, but for other countries like Peru, tourism is a big contribution to their GDP. What will never change from this is that tourism to Michael is not a job, it's a passion. And I felt his genuine compassion all throughout.

My sister and I had a wonderful time! First we visited an alpaca farm and fed them food, then we visited 2 archaelogic sites in the Sacred Valley with awesome views. The train to Machu Pichu was OK, you are required to wear a double mask and a face shield inside and no food. We had a Voyager ticket but honestly this train car is only a bit different form the normal one, so i don't think the upgrade is worth it...
Our tour guide Michael was fun, social, and able to answer any and all questions. On the first day, we went for dinner together as a group. Michael asked for a Pisco Sour show and we got to see how it is prepared and of course tasted it :)
The hotel stay was decent, with breakfast.
On the second day, we took a shuttle up toachu Picchu, it is the only way to get up there. Climbed to the upper platform with Michael's guidance. It was very foggy and we were disappointed however Michael told us the main thing to be patient and wait. We were getting anxious but Michael assured us it will clear up and indeed the wind and sun helped and got to see Machu Picchu from the top. The view is breathtaking ! We then walked down and strolled around the actual town with Michael explaining about the history and more
After riding back down, we had a couple hours to ourselves, some people went to lunch or walk around Machu Picchu town. We went to Banos thermales instead and relaxed for a bit.
Another train ride and a bus ride back, and we got back to our Cusco hotel. It was a great trip, in a comfortable van and the timing was kept like advertised. Also note that our group was only 7 people and it was perfectly small. We really enjoyed it and highly recommend to everyone!

Our favorite part about the tour was how knowledgeable and kind our guide, Bernardo, was. Our driver also kept us safe and was so kind. Learning about the historical and social cultural habits of the Incas from Bernardo was an unforgettable experience. We enjoyed seeing the Sacred Valley and learning about the agriculture and cosmology of the people of the region. We enjoyed the stops we made along the way. Our evening in Aguas Calientes was fun and our view of the river from our hotel was delightful. The next day, visiting Machu Picchu was a wonder. It was quite crowded but we could find space to see and learn. The trip really is breathtaking. Future travelers should know that the bus ride to Machu Picchu is a little intimidating--but riders soon see how experienced the drivers are and how well the system works. It was great to have Bernardo there with our tickets and to help us navigate each part of the journey.

This tour was probably one of the best tours I've ever done in my life. I've always wanted to visit Machu Pichu and the Sacred Valley but never got the chance until now. We went during the month of January which is a rainey season but i wouldn't have went any other time. There were absolutely no crowds and the weather was perfect.

I first have to say that our tour guide, Gary, was exceptional. Very patient with us and knowledgeable. He took us to do alot of touring, apart from giving us many times bits of info about the sacred valley and Machu Pichu, he took us to the best photo spots and took lots of awesome pictures. I have him to thank for those.... for capturing the memories.

The sacred valley was beautiful, just walking through it is a spiritual experience in itself. Just learning the history was great also. Machu Pichu was awe inducing. You look at it in pictures. But the pictures can never do it justice. Another wonderful thing about the 2 day tour was the train ride. The views were spectacular, just watching the mountains as you go from olantayambo to Aguascalientes. I particularly enjoyed Aguascalientes, a small town, but fun nonetheless. We wanted to actually stay more time there.

There's also extra things we did which I enjoyed as well... such as the animal sanctuary. That was unexpected and a great experience as we got to feed the animals and alpacas.

I would definitely recommend Machu Pichu Latin America for your tour in Cusco. Fun and memorable times !

We’ve completed Day 1 of our 2 day Sacred Valley Machupicchu tour with Machupicchu Latin America and our tour guide Michael. Michael is very accommodating, professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Michael gives us a unique view of Peru and it’s culture. He is full of information and eager to impart it. He is also a good tour leader, being very clear with his instructions and very good with herding the group along. For example we got to the lunch restaurant prior to their lunch rush allowing for east access to the buffet and a leisurely meal. A final note, the tour operator’s van was late model and in excellent condition. The driver has been very safe and conscientious. We have been very pleased so far.
