    Amazing Jungle Tour 2022
    We booked a 4 day Machu Picchu with activities include biking, rafting, ziplining and Cocalmayo hot springs. Jose was the best guide we had on the whole trip. His explanation of all the places we visited and the meaning behind them made us appreciate the culture and people of Peru even more. is one of the great adventures! That really likes us. We recommend this company for an unforgettable trip from start to finish. Many thanks Inca Machu Picchu Tours.

    Amazing trip PERU 2022
    Inca Machu Picchu Tours provided me with the best care and adventure during my trip to Peru. I enjoyed every moment of it. Our travel assistant, Yang, was very helpful in arranging my entire trip and answered my questions and concerns when needed. I have never felt insecure or uncomfortable. I highly recommend this agency to anyone who wants to have a good time in Peru.

    unforgettable experience
    The 4 day trip was an unforgettable experience. We were instructed the day before the tour and were picked up on time for our bike experience the next morning. All four days are very unique and provide amazing insights into Peruvian and Inca culture as well as the people and nature of the country. Our tour guide Jorge definitely helped us create an amazing experience and answered all our questions in detail. All accommodation and meals were good, especially the first night at the local house. This tour is perfect for those who don't want to hike four days to Machu Picchu but want to get there in a very adventurous way. We definitely recommend these guys for your Cusco adventure

    amazing jungle Adventure !!
    We had a wonderful trip with our guide Jose. The stay in the jungle was pleasant and mysterious. This country is impressive. Good night, rest, loving family! 8 hours of jungle walk after that, wonderful place, very beautiful unique scenery! Our tour guide Jonathan was first rate and very knowledgeable about Peruvian history. Final: Machu Picchu! ! Astonishing ! I recommend this experience if you are adventurous, sporty, natural and informal.

    I took this private tour with my husband and everything went so smoothly from the US booking to the return to the hotel. our hotel pick-up in Cusco, transfer to the train and meeting our guide Jose in Aguas Calientes, it was all seamless. Our driver was a courteous and safe driver, the train ride was amazing, the return was stunning with views, music and dancing, the Machu Picchu tour was superlative. Everything is professionally delivered. I can't think of any other way to improve the experience other than eliminating the rude tourists who seem to only care about taking selfies at the spiritual site. Thanks a lot guys.

    Amazing way to see Machu picchu
    We enjoyed a fun 4 day Inca Jungle Machu Picchu tour with Inca Machu Picchu Tours! On the first day we did a 2 hour downhill bike ride Jose, our guide was an experienced mountain biker and was in a great mood! also we did rafting activity in t ehe afternoon,The next day we had to walk down a very beautiful path where he showed many beautiful things in his family home in flora and fauna. On the third day we had an adventure where we completed the zipline. All of these activities are included in the package, including a visit to Machu Picchu and return to Cusco by train a unique experience that we highly recommend!!.

    Very Well Organized
    We book a private tour with my husband, pre-booked from the US. Yang helped with the booking via email and was responsive, approachable and spoke good English. He answered all my many questions and customized the tour to our needs. He made us feel very comfortable with advance bookings in Cusco, Peru. You can also tell him and the guide are all about the details and make sure everything is perfect. Our guide Juan was also great. Met us in Aguas calientes and gave us a great tour. Also very approachable, friendly and knowledgeable. We had a buffet lunch at the Sanctuary Lodge at the entrance with a view of Machu Picchu. However, it does have great food and already has amazing views which is just what we needed. Thank you!.

    Machu Picchu 1 day
    Customer service is very good! Inca Machu Picchu Tours does a great job ensuring that we get where we need it at the right time. Of course, Machu Picchu is great and must be done. The tour guide felt that we were in a time frame, but he was very patient with my mother and father thank you for all Inca Team.

    Wonderful days in Perú!!
    We completed the Inca Machu Picchu Tour Peruvian Magic (7 days). This trip couldn't be more exciting! ! ! Our tour guide Jose (Pepe) made our whole journey so special and perfect. When I said he made this trip perfect, I was serious. He has devoted so much care and love to every aspect of travel. He is very caring and patient and makes sure that we are taken care of every step of the way. Everyone knows Jose, and he also knows everyone and everything we asked him. He surpassed and surpassed his job responsibilities, ensuring that we make the most of every experience. If you have Jose as a tour guide, please consider yourself very lucky because he is the kindest and most enthusiastic person and loves his beautiful country. We hope to come back and do another tour with him because he is really good. I am very happy that choose our adventure in Peru with Inca Machu pichu Tours, because I can really say that this trip was arranged perfectly and the company gave great support before the date of the trip. The organization is great, we have the best tour guides, and they quickly became our good friends. Thank you for making our trip perfect, Jose, and thank you for sharing your beautiful country with us! We want to thank you for your wonderful journey. We are always grateful!!

    Overall experience 5/5
    We booked this tour last minute. Yang is very helpful, He contacted us immediately and gave us all the necessary information. Alfret our tour guide for the day, picked us up from our hotel. He was able to communicate with our English and other Spanish speakers. Breakfast and lunch are delicious!!. I want to say thanks a lot to our driver! The road from Cusco to the trailhead was a bit scary, but our driver was great. Overall experience 5/5!

    Do not recommend
    We took the tour on 24 April 2021. First, we waited more than 20 min for one of the parties to show up. We waited another 20 min in the van for that same party after lunch was over while they ate birthday cake. We ate at the same restaurant for breakfast and lunch. The food was good; however, there wasn't enough for the last two people in our party of 10 and definitely not enough if you wanted more--at both meals. The temperature in the morning was in the 40's and neither the van nor the restaurant had heat. The hot food at breakfast was cold because it was just sitting out and the guide ignored me when I asked for heat. He also ignored me a second time when I asked if they could do something about the walking sticks slamming up against the walls as we drove. Ultimately I ended up opening the back myself when they had to stop for gas (which they should have already done before they arrived) and reorganizing them so they wouldn't roll around. On the way back it was much warmer and there was no air circulation in the van; however, diesel fumes and dust was somehow blowing in. At lunch all the windows and doors were open at the restaurant. Again, there was not enough food and the food that was available was uncovered and swarming with flies. At the end of the tour we were dropped off about 10 minutes away from our hotel and told to walk back. There was never hand sanitizer available nor were temperatures ever taken. No one on this tour wore their mask in the van and the guide was upfront behind a shield. We were supposed to receive a briefing in our hotel the night before, but just received an email. After the tour was over the guide gave us a 5 min or less informational briefing about the history of the mountain, but nothing prior. I would definitely not recommend this company when there are so many who are so much better.

My boyfriend and I had an amazing time trekking with Inca Machu Picchu Tours! Our guides Rodrigo and Carlos were fantastic, they were able to get us through our trek safely. The Salkantay Trek was very physically challenging, but the views and different micro-climates were definitely worth it. I will forever cherish all of the great memories I made on this trip!.
Can't recommend Inca Machu Picchu Tours enough. Go sooner than later!
