Machu Picchu Tour Reviews

Based on 145 customer reviews
BEST experience!
5 - Excellent
  • Harry Milne
“"Really amazing experience with some really great people! This is an awesome way to explore Machu Picchu, learning the history along the way and seeing some amazing sights! The chefs made the best food on the mountain - every lunch, breakfast and dinner was different with an abundance of food and GREAT variety! The porters worked very hard carrying our bags, being friendly and always giving the best service - it is notable that the tour company provides them with good kit, equipment and food. Finally, the guides were both great fun and always tried to ensure we had the best experience. Henry (the younger guide) had a great sense of humour, telling good stories but also helped slower members of the group at the back which enabled the faster ones to go ahead at their pace. Rosel (the head guide) was also very friendly, has an awesome laugh and was very good at organising our time to arrive on time at every point and ensure everyone had the correct kit and equipment, he was also very informative about the history of the Inca Trail. Would definitely recommend and would definitely do it again! One word of warning - naturally you are wild camping so the toilet facilities are not amazing, but it is a small sacrifice for the BEST experience!"”

“I highly recommend this tour operator for the Inca trail! Our guides, Fletcher and Wilber, were amazing! Their personality and knowledge of the Inca trail and history made for a memorable experience. The food was amazing. They provided a sample of Peruvian culture through their food and stories, all cooked by our own personal chef! The Inca trail was beautiful and the porters worked so hard to make the experience feel even more memorable and comfortable. I can’t say enough about this company and experience. Don’t hesitate and book with them.”
Well prepared

  • Anne Klaasen
“Well prepared Salkantay trek 5d/5n zone with Saul G as a guide and Gregorio as a chef and Cesar and Walter as porters. Good food all the way and amazing places to sleep such as the hobbit houses and the star gazing houses the very first night. Bonus was the lomo saltado cooking class and the visit of a coffee farm.”

Machu Picchu - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Tour Highlights

  • Arrive at Machu Picchu on foot after hiking the four-day Inca Trail.
  • Alternatively, base yourself at Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu Pueblo), arriving after a spectacular train journey through the mountains.
  • Travel up to the ruins in time to catch the sunrise at Machu Picchu.
  • Look out for highlights among the ruins themselves including the Temple of the Sun, the Room of the Three Windows, Intihuatana and the Sun Gate.
  • Climb Huayna Picchu, the peak at the northern end of the ruins, for views of Machu Picchu.

Travel Tips

  • Visitors to Machu Picchu are limited to 2,500 per day so book ahead to avoid disappointment, especially at the busiest times.
  • Only 400 people are permitted to climb Huayna Picchu per day so you will need to arrive early. This means queuing for the first bus from Aguas Calientes before 4.30am.
  • Follow the vertiginous trail down from Huayna Picchu to see the less-visited Temple of the Moon.
  • If you are unable to obtain a ticket for Huayna Picchu, climb Cerro Picchu to the south instead. You will be rewarded by great views and fewer crowds.
  • If you want to avoid the overcrowded Inca Trail, you can take on the alternative Salkantay Trek which offers views of Machu Picchu from above before arriving at Aguas Calientes for a visit of the ruins the next day.
  • Take insect repellent and be prepared for both sun and rain even in dry season. 

Machu Picchu has seasonal weather so please do check up on the best time to visit Machu Picchu before planning your tour. If you’re still hunting for more things to do and places to explore in Peru, do check out our Peru Travel Guide for more information.
