Vacation, we visited the Sacred Valley, salt mines, Moray, Salinas, Ecuador and Lima Peru. We chartered a boat and went on several boat rides. It was a wonderful vacation, very interesting and culturally informative.

Yes, this is definitely worth a trip up to see this amazing place. And yes, there will be tons of tourists from all over the world visiting at the same time as you... but you can find a quiet space to reflect if you want it. I wanted to do a little private ceremony to honor the builders of this... More

Truly is spectacular and mystical.. Quite a long bus/train/bus from Cuzco but well worth the trip.. Wish we had spent a couple of hours in the town of Machu Piccu wondering around.. Also wish we had gotten up there before noon, was unable to climb all the way to the top since they closed it in the afternoon so everyone... More

Machu Picchu is the most impressive place we has ever been to. It was just epic on so many different levels. Uncover Latin America a company who specializes in organizing vacations to Peru came highly recommended to us, and put together for us a great experience. We had no idea on where to start and they took care of everything.... More

It is no wonder why this is one of the new world wonders. It takes your breath away the moment you see the ruins. It may be a hassle getting to the area but we'll worth the visit. We took the Perurail from Cusco and stayed in Aguas Caliente for 2 nights. Which was a great decision rather then traveling... More

Some people take the easy way by train to the station of Machu Picchu and walk the few steps to witness this Inca marvel in the Andies. I climbed and trekked the Andies to get there and shall never regret the vistas, the wise guides, Victor and Bruce our remarkable guides who introduced us to the flora, fauna and the... More

I went last December to Cuzco and all the places around including Machu Pichu. This a realy magic place, something different from any place you can visit. We have great adventura by train. We were in a Top Quality Hotel, but you can have also cheaper alternatives.

Machu Picchu is a fascinating place to visit! Here is some advice before you go: 1) I don't know if it is a seasonal thing, but in September there were these tiny black bugs (sand flies) that will bite the hell out of you! So be sure to use insect repellent. 2) There is a lot of steep walking at... More
