The tour was wonderful! Great value for all the we got. Very organized, small group tour of Machu Picchu (8 people). The guide was wonderful, funny, and knew all the history. She gave us plenty of time to take pictures and offered many times to take great pictures for us. The train was comfy and offered great views. Small meals/snacks were provided along with hot beverages. Would reccomens to my friends!

Machu Picchu is undoubtably worth a visit – for the nature, the history or even the personal photos. The tour planned out all the stages of getting from Cusco to Machu Picchu and back. The guide was responsive via text message in advance to confirm all the details. Our guide at Machu Picchu was great – giving a lot of history and information. The train travel was in the executive car and comes with delicious snacks and drinks while you overlook the gorgeous scenery.

Happy with the your service. Pick up in the morning as expected, first class train, tickets to Machu Picchu included, and Tom was an excellent guide. Thank you Tom for being so kind and patient with us!

Our trip was absolutely amazing and the organization could not have been better! We were contacted a few days prior to our trip to confirm our reservation and to schedule a meet-and-greet the evening before. At 7pm, before our trip, Luciana, our travel coordinator, met us at our Cusco hotel. She had all our tickets (bus, train, Machu Picchu entrance) and a bag of snacks. She had taken the liberty to book us in for the 2nd wave of entrance (12-5:30pm) at Machu Picchu. All the tickets were stapled in order, with dates and times highlighted. She walked us through every step, so we would know what to expect. We left our hotel at 3:45am, arrived at the train station just in time to take the 5:15am train. it was fantastic. We were served complementary refreshments and arrived in Aguas Calientes shortly before 8am. We had time to explore the down before taking the bus up the hill to MP. At the top we were met by another guide. Cannot say enough about how great it was!
