Amazing place!!
It was one of my dream to be here and now it turned real. It is completely amazing place located between the mountains where the access is almost impossible. recommend to everyone to go early to enjoy the view.

Once in a lifetime experience
Jun 2021
Machu Picchu is without a doubt one of most beautiful sites I have seen in my entire life. Visiting it during covid times was incredible because there were hardly any people and I felt safe because the guards were strict regarding social distancing and wearing of face masks. I booked the tour with the operator Exploor and would recommend them 100%, very good price/quality ratio. Machu Picchu bucket list: check!

Best day in Peru
May 2021
Visiting Machu Picchu in the pandemic was an absolute highlight as it was not crowded at all and I really felt safe at all times. We did our tour with a local tour operator from Cusco called Exploor Peru and we had a great time, our guide Manuel was incredible. My recommendation for all of you: go to the bathroom before entering MP, there are NO toilets inside.

One Of The Most Impressive Sightseeing Excursions
Oct 2020
The views are breathtaking. Seeing the pictures online represent Machu Picchu as a spectacular place; actually being there puts you in a state of awe on so many levels. The architecture, the scenery, the history, everything you learn about the Incas and the massive Andes surrounding you make this sightseeing excursion one of the most impressive. Truly a wonder of the world.

Some things we learned during our trip:

We were told that entrance tickets to Machu Picchu and the train to get to Aguas Calientes can sell out, so make sure to purchase your tickets ahead of time.

We purchased our bus tickets to Machu Picchu in Aguas Caliente the day before doing the tour. The buses get extremely busy, so we went earlier in the morning and took one of the earlier rides back to help avoid some of the crowds.

Much of the info online says you are required to have a guide to tour the grounds, however, we found that this was not a requirement at the time that we visited. This is a topic that seems to have the possibility of changing in the future though so doing your research before you head to Peru is a good idea. Our group split up throughout the day, so we ended up hiring two different private guides upon arrival at Machu Pichu. Each guide cost about $100 including tip for a tour that was 2 hours in length. It was a pleasant and informative experience, although while reminiscing about each of our tour experiences later that night, we realized that there were some inconsistencies in the information provided. This is another reason why doing your research on the various tour offerings ahead of time is a good idea.

We visited in October and the weather was perfect for us, it was warm but not too hot. We had heard that the sand flies can be annoying, so we wore long pants as well as brought bug spray and essential oils to help keep them at bay and did not have any issue.

In one area of Machu Picchu, we came across llamas and alpacas – they were wildly entertaining for our group and a fun surprise for everyone.

This experience was well worth the travel it took to get there and is definitely one to have on the bucket list!

Must visit
Jan 2021
Without a doubt, this is one of the most impressive places I've been to in my entire life. The energy you feel when at Machu Picchu is hard to put in words. The story of this place is incredible and definitely a must visit (or a "bucket list" place as my son would say).
