    The two day Machu Picchu tour was an incredible way to be introduced to the land around Cusco and Machu Picchu. Our guide Fabrizio was well versed in the area and Inca heritage. He proudly presented the information to us and gave us extra time if we needed it. He made sure we got all the pictures we wanted and took many for us. The small group tour was well organized, Fabrizio prepared us for what to bring, where to go, how to reconnect that we never felt unsafe or alone. We added a Machu Picchu mountain hike and he dave us instructions on meeting back up. You can store your luggage at the hotel in aguas calientes while in Machu Picchu. The train from Ollayantaytambo was so scenic. Could not recommend this tour more. Worth every penny. Ask for Fabrizio!

    Our Machu Picchu experience was great. It started with our super friendly pickup guide Wilbur. He gave us a run of show for the day and what to expect each leg of the trip. Ending with us meeting our tour guide Johnny outside of the trains station in Macchu Picchu.

    Our tour guide Johnny was amazing. He has been touring Inca trails and Machu Picchu for over 20 years and it showed. He leverage several tips and tricks from his experience to enhance the tour as well as avoid crowds for better views. All while conducting an engaging bilingual tour in Spanish and English. We felt neither party was left out when it was spoken in a different language.

    The icing on the cake to Johnny's experience would be his picture taking abilities. He blew us away with not only great spots to take pictures but taking great pictures of us. We're very appreciative to have great pictures to remember this great tour.

    The tour company level of communication and professionalism was also top notch and I would highly recommend them.

    Inca Rail was also very professional, accommodating, and hospitable. We could ride the 360 train all day.

    We had such an amazing time on the 4 day Classic Inca Trail! Our guides Charly and Yoner made our experience really special, by sharing interesting stories with us about the inca's, and also their knowledge about the flora and fauna found in the area. They really wanted us to have the best experience :) And not to forget, all 21 porters who carried everything, they were really amazing too! The chef made the most delicious and healthy food for us during the trip. It was an unforgettable experience for us!

    the 4-day salkantay trek is a wonderful experience, even more when organized by Salkantay Trekking.
    We learned so much about the region, the locals, the geography, and ourselves.
    We felt supported throughout the trip with everything made easy and provided for us, we want to warmly thank Nico our super guide and Donado our amazing cook!!

    We had a wonderful time with our guide Claudio, who was so knowledgeable about Incan history and the ecology of the region. Absolutely magical experience on the trail and ending the hike with arriving at Machu Picchu. And starting day 2 with sunrise at Machu Picchu is not to be missed!!

    What a spectacular day trip to Machu Picchu with Happy Gringo Tours! From start the company demonstrated stellar organization, making sure every detail was handled with professional care.

    Our guide, Ram, was an absolute gem. His enthusiasm and depth knowledge about the history and the architecture of the site brought the ancient city to life in a way we could not have imagined. We could tell he truly loved sharing his passion for his country`s rich heritage.

    The trip was seamlessly orchestrated. We were picked up from our hotel promptly and journeyed to the site comfortable. the tour was well paced, allowing us plenty of time to marvel at the surroundings and take countless memorable photos.

    The cherry on top? The delicious Peruvian lunch served, additing a flavorful finish to our adventure.

    We highly recommend Happy Gringo Tours. They offer an unforgettable experience, so if you are looking to visit Machu Picchu, look no further!

    We just finished our tour with Luis and it was fantastic. Not only the communication before, but also the tour itself was well organised. Luis told us so much about the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu and he was always very passionate, friendly and patient. If you want to go to Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu, we highly recommend booking your tour with Alpaca Expeditions!

    My guides Carlos and Javier couldn’t have made this experience any better! Whenever I’m back in Peru there will be no other company I will use for my trekking experiences!

    Mauro made our 2 day Inca Trail hike a success. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the area, the flora/fauna, and culture. Mauro adapted the hike to our needs, allowing us to rest when we wanted and push on when we wanted. Whenever we paused for a rest, he was able to find a plant or viewpoint to talk to us about. When in Aguas Caliente, Mauro took care of all the details and made sure we had whatever we needed. We would book any tour again if he was our guide!

    This was a very well-organized and streamlined trip. Eduardo was exceptional with the planning. I was hesitant to purchase a trip before meeting somebody but Eduardo was very helpful in arranging everything well beforehand.

    Machu Picchu was incredible and our guide was as good as it gets. I would recommend this trip to anybody! If you’re up to hiking a few thousand feet up Huayna Picchu it is definitely worth every moment

    We had a wonderful day at Machu Picchu. The organization and communication was perfect. Our tour guide, Julio, was very knowledgeable and friendly. He explained the area thoroughly and was great with our numerous questions. His info helped put the history into context for us. Julio was also a wonderful photographer. We got a lot more pictures (and really nice pictures) than we otherwise would have.

    It was also nice having the lunch restaurant already selected (and paid), so we didn't have to figure out where to eat when we got back to Aguas Calientes. The food was very good. It was a great tour!
