This was the BEST choice in tours I made. Don’t think I would have had a better experience with any other. I lucked out! Everyone worked well together, from the communication, transportation, the guides, drivers, times to meet, etc. Obviously you have to pay attention or you could easily miss the cue for the train, pick up, etc. So pay attention as the day goes FAST! Everything was bet well organized and we did not have any issues. My group was amazing and everyone has a blast. Mauro our guide was amazing. Very patient with some of us wondering around. Mauro, thank YOU so MUCH. You made it a whole lot better. Machu Picchu was simply draw dropping and just incredible to see. I was pleased with this tour and would pick them again! Maximo, thank you for driving us long hours back and forth. Thank you Happy Gringo Tours! 🙌🏼

We had difficult time to find the Machu Picchu tickets. We were lucky to meet a travelers who were in our hotel they gave us the contact number of Gringo Tours. They got the tickets for the circuit two when this circuit is booked months in advance. Thanks the crew of Happy Gringo, the team was super helpful ando highly recommend visiting Machu Picchu witj them. We are Happy Gringos too :)

We had booked the final 10km hike to Machu Picchu and had just met our guide, Franklin. We began the hike but it quickly became clear that something was not right with my son’s health. After trying a bit more we reluctantly decided we had to abort the hike. Franklin was really on the ball. He got us onto a train to Aguas Calientes where there were medical facilities. Franklin ran to the medical centre and the staff came down to us in order to assess my son. Franklin was in constant contact with Marco at Happy Gringo back in Cusco. Furthermore, Marco kept phoning me to reassure me we were not alone. He was looking into accommodation in Aguas Calientes for us in order to give us rest and to complete our tour. My son received excellent treatment (turned out to be food poisoning), and after a few hours in the hospital he was discharged. The doctor said it would be ok to still visit Machu Picchu as long as we took the bus up the hill. So, we did get to see the site and Franklin was great at explaining the areas and significance of the site in the wider context of the Inca empire. Tours are fun when they go right and this company has a good reputation. However, we don’t think enough about what could go wrong. I’d like to reassure everyone that these guys have it all covered. They made a stressful time as “low stress” as possible and I can’t thank them enough. Great team - you’ll be in safe hands if things don’t go to plan!

Last minute trip, found a one day trip through trip advisor. Was happy. Called the tour operator, Happy Gringo Tours, to confirm, given it was last minute. (Night before). They told me I would have to pay an additional $50 when I arrived the following day. When I argued that the trip was fully paid for, they canceled it. Shady, seedy operator. Not happy. Confirmation info is below- Confirmed Day Trip Tour to Machu Picchu from Cusco Day Trip Tour to Machu Picchu from Cusco Day Trip Tour to Machu Picchu from Cusco 04:30 USD $393.00 Mon, Sep 05,

Response from happygringotours, Director of Sales at Happy Gringo Tours

Hello Chris, Thanks for your time to write your thoughts! - We have given you the detailed information why you had to pay the extra to visit Machu Picchu. You booked the tour at last minute when Machu Picchu regular tickets were fully sold out. We had the last chance but you did not want to pay because you had another travel agency cheaper than us. Therefore, your Machu Picchu tour was canceled together witn you, but we do not understand why you had to write us this review. Of course, we won't never force our clients to visit Machu Picchu but we always give all our best to our clients to have a good experience in your Machu Picchu day trip. We are really sorry with you! You had a bad idea to cancel you Machu Picchu tour. We can notice, you did not have a good experience with the cheaper travel agency that you were comparing us. :( Honestly, we are unique company in Peru that can find the Machu Picchu tickets at last minute but with extra costs. In your case was to use the Machu Picchu ticket of The Inca Trail that costs more expensive than the Machu Picchu regular ticket. Thanks for adding one review more to our reviews and we wish you all the best of the world! Warm regards, Happy Gringo Team

Overall a wonderful experience. A little hiccup with entrance tickets to Machu Picchu, but that was resolved by the tour guides. The guides were very knowledgeable, provided historical context, and were very friendly. The sites speak for themselves, so if you’re already looking at visiting Machu Picchu, you won’t be disappointed.
