About
A private guide means you will receive undivided attention from your tour guide and you will be able to ask numerous questions and customize your Machupicchu itinerary according to your interests. Machupicchu is very big and you cannot see it all in one day, so having a private guide means you will see more and also see the attractions you are most interested in as long as it is covered within the 2.5hr tour. Plus, your guide is more than happy to snap photographs of you and your party throughout the experience.

We secured a guide, Christian, and entrance tickets to Machu Picchu through this tour company. I was pleased by the communication from the company. We purchased tickets on a VIP level given that most tickets were sold out given the limited tickets available due to Covid. This ticket allowed us entry and anytime of the day. The tickets arrived electronically. Our guide met us the night before at 7 pm, discussed plans and was present to greet us on the agreed upon time. Bus ride up and toured this bucket list amazing historical place. Christian was knowledgable and took several pictures for us. The location allows for removal of the mask for pictures upon request of our guide. Yes you need a mask to walk around and a face shield on the bus, but small requirements which allow a visit to a spectacular viewing of Machu Picchu.

It’s a nice place to visit but not worth it at this time because of the fact that you can’t even remove your mask to take a picture when you are maintaining a safe distance between other visitors and then put it back is so disappointing.
It’s not about wearing it, of course we were complying with the “mandatory mask” throughout our tour but getting told off for trying to take only 1 picture without it after the money you pay to visit this country is not acceptable.
Some of the staff or “rangers” were rude and not friendly.
Everyone wants to get a picture in machupicchu and no ones wants to take it with their mask on.

This was s really good experience. The historical site is amazing. And what made it extra perfect Alex Jesús the tour guide was amazing.  Very knowledgeable and friendly.  We moved through the city at a perfect pace not slow not fast. He knew all thr good photo locations and took some great photos of me. He speaks English very clearly and I could understand 100% of what he said all the time. He made good use of his book with pictures as well.   I'm very happy
  If I was his boss I would give him a promotion.

We went to Machu Picchu in April 2019 and pre-booked the guide service from ,Machu Picchu centre for 2.5hrs service at $90 for 3 persons. As per their instruction, we came out of the Aquas Calientes station and glad to see their representative was waiting with our name board. The lady representative said that our guide would be Victor and he would wait at 12-15pm( as confirmed by us earlier) at the gate of site. She took a photo of 3 of us and sent it to Victor so that he could identify us. She showed us the queue for the bus at the station. Since we had the entry pass at 12 noon at Machu Picchu, our bus queue was different and we were the first to stand in the queue at 11am. She also advised us to buy some food here as there was only one restaurant in Machu Picchu, which would be very costly and time consuming. Thanks for her advice as we really struggled to get time later. We had the pre booked tickets for the bus and thought that we could board at any time, but we were wrong. We had to wait in the long queue both ways and turn over timing is at least one hour each way. Therefore, we had to wait more than an hour for the bus and once we boarded , she gave a text to Victor informing bus number and time of arrival.
That made the process smooth and once we got down from the bus at Machu Picchu , a nice gentleman came with smile and introduced as our guide Victor.

Machu Picchu is a big area with enoromous steps to up and down and timing was limited. We had noon entry but the return train timing was at 16:53. So in reality, we could stay upto 3pm as getting a bus for going to station would take an hour in the queue.
So we had practically 2hrs mins and it was impossible without Victor to cover the whole area. He first took us on the top, informed about the development and history, allowed us ample timing to take photos, he himself took many phptos in our cameras for 3 of us. He always took us to the best photo shoot places and enriched us every where with the back ground and history.
Macchu Picchu had many many steps and without his guidance and knowledge, it was impossible to see the place within that limited time.
We just completed the site at 3pm and he allowed us to come of our own pace as there were many steps and we were clearly struggling then but he got down and went outside quickly and stood in the bus queue on behalf of us. Without his help, we were not be able to reach station in time and his advance queuing saved us at least 30 mins of time.
Thanks Machu Picchu center for providing such a knowledgeable, helpful and caring guide.We are not only very happy but truly realised that it was impossible to visit without Victor.
