  • After travelling around South America - this has to be my favourite thing of the whole trip. Machu Picchu is by far the most amazing thing I've ever seen. The guide was so informative on all the historic details and even took our photographs and knew the best places to stand with the best views. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to learn all about Machu Picchu.

  • The guides English was limited and the narrative was very basic. Then again, you get what you pay for..

  • We did a day tour of Machu Picchu under the Machu Picchu Guided Tour from Aguas Calientes package.

    Greeters:
    - We were given information in advance to find the tour guide which we found upon exiting the complete train station.
    - The greeters helped us get to the bus to ride up to Machu Picchu and get our entry tickets printed.
    - The greeters didn't properly communicate everything that was happening. We weren't aware we were running to print the tickets or pay for the bus entry. And we weren't aware we were going to meet another guide once we got to the ruins.

    Tour Guide:
    - Ivan was an amazing tour guide! He knew sooooo much history regarding the ruins!
    - He knew where to take the best pictures and the best poses!
    - He also had information regarding the vegetation and animals of the area.

    I would recommend the agency based on the guide as he was amazing!

  • Our Guide had set up for someone to meet us from the train station in Aguas the day before the tour. That person then showed us to our Hostel and guided us through buying the bus tickets to MP. The guide then met us the night before the tour and adviced us the best way and time to see MP. Our tour was excellent and I definitely recommend buying this.

  • Very good tour with a knowledgeable guide. The only regret was that we were not told that there were only 3 entries allowed. Since we entered to see the sunrise over the mountains and then had to come out to meet our guide, we had used 2 of our three entries. The park is in a loop, and we were not allowed to restart the loop without exiting entirely. This would waste our third entry, and we had been planing to exit and have lunch prior to ascending to the Sun Gate. After a lengthy argument in rudimentary Spanish with the guard, we were allowed to restart without exiting. However, it was a bit uncomfortable and unforeseen.

  • Ground crew were cranky and didn't really communicate well but our main guide, Hugo, was AMAZING! Very patient in explaining to us and gave us the best tips on taking all the requisite touristy photos.

  • Tour guide went above and beyond to coordinate everyone at hotels and to meeting points. Overall experience was unforgettable!

  • Great knowledge, very informative and his english was very good. Excellent value for money A

  • It was a good, coordinated effort. A guide met us at the station and helped us purchase bus tickets. Also offered to help with purchasing our return train tickets. Another guide met us at the top. Spoke good English, gave a good 2 hour tour of the site. Plenty of time for questions. He did not take us to the most popular photo site, saying we could return there on our own. He did a good job of avoiding other clots of tourists.

  • The guide was great with excellent English. Jonathon Knowledgable and met us the night before to discuss what to expect the next day.
    I wish when signing up the details of ticket purchase for the bus and the tickets to Machu Pichu had been more clear
