What a grandeur city of the incas. Everybody must visit! The view is amazing. It surely takes your breath away. It is a magnificent work, the way this city was built with interlocking rocks, it just extraordinary. The Inca civilization was so rich and way ahead of its time. No wonder why this is one the 7 wonders of the... More

This was an amazing experience! We debated whether or not to do the early morning hike up, but ended up taking the earliest bus we could. We actually got there right as the sun was rising and was one of the first people in! If you plan to take the early bus, you need to get there very early! We... More

Truly spectacular. Just make sure you take sun cream. For some reason, I missed this advice and didn't think of it. The result was the worst burn of my life. Walking around Cuzco, you'll see armies of red-faced tourists. The temperature can be deceiving. Learn from my pain.

Another item crossed off my bucket list & it was wonderful. Walking around looking at all of the amazing rockwork and trying to fathom the Incans finding, cutting, dragging & placing every stone without the use of mortar is unbelievable. We found the site easy to navigate and we're in our sixties but the climb to the Sun Gate pushed... More

Yes, it was a great visit. Even for folks who take the bus up the mountain, there are lots of steps to clamber up and down at the top. At 8,000 feet above sea level. It's fine for those with good fitness and balance who have taken their Diamox, but not for every one.

My sister and I booked the 4 day Inca trail through Inka Experience and Daniel was amazing at setting up the trip of our dreams. Booking through Inka Experience was key to the success of our trip. Daniel at Inka Experience, listened to our desires for the type of trip from the type of tour guide and company we wanted... More

To get to Machu Picchu we took a "collectivo" from Cusco to Ollantaytambo, then the Inca Rail train to the town of Aguas Calientes. We stayed overnight 1 night in Aguas Calientes, visited the ruins the next morning and took the 2PM train back to Ollantaytambo, then the collectivo back to Cusco. The collectivo is a shared van, you don't... More

Having waited all our adult lives to visit Machu Pichu I am glad to report that it was well worth the wait - spectacular comes to mind. This is definitely a "Must See" destination and in fact defines the term. We visited during the rainy season and were prepared for foul weather and indeed wondered if we would be able... More

I don't see the big deal with these overpriced ruins. They are stone ruins on top of a hill. It is hard to get to the ruins from cusco like 3 to 4 hours by train, and they overprice everything for tourists. What makes it interesting is that they ruins are on top of the hill and offers a good... More
