Out of all ways to get to Machu Picchu this is the cheapest (unless you walk all the way there). The company is very professional. The driver we had both ways drove safely and did his best to accommodate everyones requests. They also provided us with free water and dropped of the jumper I forgot on the bus off at our hotel without any issues. Highly recommend this!

We wanted to buy bus tickets to hydroelectica with this company. In the morning we went to the addresses on the website but both of them were closed. We contact them by WhatsApp. They said we could book the tickets but needed to sent a photo of our passports. For us it was just as easy to walk to the company again, so we told them we would do that. They told us the opening hours and we waited till they were open. After half an hit of waiting they still did not open. We contacted them again by WhatsApp via two different phone numbers but we have never heard of them before. They are also really expensive compared to other companies. Our host said you should not pay more than 60 soles for a round trip. We ended up with another company who charged us 55 soles for a round ticket instead of 30 USD.

WARNING: To get to Hidroelectrica to start the hike it’s about 45 mins on a really dangerous road. This last part of the drive was terrifying. At one point the driver passed another bus, just because it stopped for a few seconds. We were on the edge of a narrow dusty road, with 5 cm to go before approx. 1000 meter drop straight down (no security fence). People were screaming. The passing was totally unnecessary, as the bus we passed started driving again straight after we passed it. I also think that the driver in general drove to quickly on this road. The rest of the trip was mostly fine, except for too high speed in several of the turnings on the mountain pass road. Beltran was the name of the driver, in Sakura transporte turístico. We complained afterwards but he just blamed the car that stopped (!) After a while the company did give us an excuse, after loads of explanations to justify that the driver didn’t drive to fast. They sent us track records of cars speed, and claimed everyone else were happy about the trip - which is definitely not true, lots of people were terrified they just didn’t bother to send a complaint. Our impression is that the company doesn’t recognize that in the end it is the customers experience that matters. If people are scared and uncomfortable they should take that into account, respect it, and really see how they can improve their services. We’ve recommended the company to put a warning about the terrible state of the road on their webpage and let people know that there are no security fences and a really steep and long drop straight down, so people at least know what they sign up to. We also told them that they should make sure to have responsible drivers when they take tourists along this dangerous path. In the end they responded that they’ll consider our feedback. We ended up paying extra to take the train back, as we didn’t want to risk our lives again. On their webpage they have a 100 % satisfactory guarantee. We pointed that out and asked for compensation for our train tickets, but we didn’t get any refund, just a defensive print of their budget stating how little they own per person, to explain why they couldn’t compensate us. I’m sure it’s true, but then there should not be a 100 % satisfactory guarantee. However they did agree that we could use our tickets to jump on the bus in Ollantaytambo to get back to Cusco on or way back. We appreciated that, and the drive was ok. On the upside: beautiful hike from the bus to Aquas Calientes. Nice hotel with very friendly staff, and ok meals. The day at Machu Picchu was also very interesting with a good guide. The company did not have a dedicated guide for the whole trip and it was vague who was part of our group. It seems like different companies all buy services from the same bus companies, hotels etc without sending a guide for the whole trip. I guess it keeps the price down. It all worked out though, as different people showed up to tell us things at various spots. It was not a big problem but it could have been explained from the beginning, because it was all a bit confusing. In summary, the trip was fine except for the drive which was a major drawback. We’re aware that this kind of driving and such roads are not unusual in Peru, and many other countries, but some roads are worse than others, and in combination with reckless drivers it’s seriously dangerous. A guide in the car argued that other companies are worse, or the same, which is probably true (but still not an acceptable excuse). It’s really worth considering whether you’re willing to take the risk. The train was very comfortable and nice, although pricier - it’s a safe alternative. However, If you’re the kind that could drive the death road in Bolivia, and like an adrenaline kick, this might be perfect for you.

For years, I've been asking myself: Machu Picchu? What for? So much money and hassle for a ruin on top of the mountains? But I decided to go as part of my Peru trip, even if it wasn't on the original itinerary. It took me a good few weeks to realize that without car access, the cheapest way to get there would be the way via Hidroelectrica (which is still legal, no one knows when the Peruvian government will decide to forbid it). I had only 2 days and 2 nights in Cuzco and nothing could go wrong. But I had to buy my MP ticket for the PRECISE day, find a van to take me to Hidroelectrica, find accommodation, find a guide and etc. I was really afraid something could go wrong and I wouldn't have time enough. But then I found a solution: the package these guys offer had everything and even more: dinner in MP, guide, all for just a few dollars more, but with the peace of mind that everything would be fine. When I got to the meeting point, Eric received me with a long detailed briefing about the day tour. The driver had really nice music and not the horrible reggaton that is common in this part of the world. The landscapes, the mountains especially were fantastic and MP village is nice and cozy. All in all, it was a great experience and totally worth. I'd recommend Machu Picchu with Eric.

I reserved ahead of time for the 4D/3N Salkantay Trek and every step of the way, they were so attentive and informative for every question i had. What made the experience that much more amazing was the guide (Adel), very smart guy and very down to earth. On the last day of the hike, the packet that had all my information was ruined by the torrential downpour while at Machu Picchu (lucky me!) and after calling the company, they sent me screenshots of all of the documents-information needed for the rest of the journey. Couldn´t have asked for a better experience, Thank you!
