This was a "bucket list" trip for us and it was amazing! Our personal guide, Alex, just made the trip extraordinary - he was super informative on all facts / history of Machu Picchu and took such perfect care of us, from the hotel pickup to getting us to Ollentaytambo in the Sacred Valley, to catching the INCREDIBLE luxury first class train ride to Aguas Calientes along the rushing Urubamba River, to taking the bus up the VERY steep, winding road to Machu Picchu, to touring the site for over 2 hours (very few tourists re/ COVID so NOW is the time to go of you want to have MP all to yourself!), then having the most delicious lunch next door at the luxury Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, then back down the mountain to the awaiting train and from Ollentaytambo back to Cusco with a private vehicle / safe driver. THANK YOU ALEX!!! We will never forget the magic of this experience!!! Chris and Elissa, CANADA

Transfer to Urubamba by car then from there you take the train to Machu Picchu Pueblo (formerly Agua Calientes). On the train you are treated with gloves, everything is well done from the aperitif to the meals. Once at the station, a boy takes us to the bus that leads to Machu Picchu. At destination, a guide welcomes us and accompanies us through the archaeological site. All beautiful and well organized. During the return journey, the breakdown of the locomotive will delay us by about 2 hours with fear of not finding the driver anymore (fortunately he has not abandoned us). I would pull my ears to the agency for the poor customer care, hurry to deliver tickets and they did not respond on whatsapp while we were in difficulty on the return journey.

Best trip ever!

A lady called Luciano came to our hotel to meet us the day before our trip to give us our tickets and explain the pick up journey times which I thought was really professional, next day everything ran smoothly,the food on the the train was really nice, staff very friendly, we were giving unlimited drinks both coming and going,once the train arrived Karina escorted us on the bus to Machu Picchu where we met our guide who was brilliant, journey on the way back ran smoothly with live music and more wine, Brillian trip!

Agencia de viaje con personas muy simpaticas. Ademas de la visita, lo agradable es no buscar medio de transporte porque vienen to regoger el cliente at hotel y le esperan in estacion de tren at llegada del tren. El tren es un encanto de lujo y merece el precio por la calidad de la atencion a los clients tan acerca de la comida y las bebidas que todos los otros asuntos, incluso el Té despues of the excursion to Machu Pichu antes del viaje de regreso a Cusco.

Excellent, a well orchestrated tour from a ti z.

Well recommended to everyone. Worth the price. You will have the best experience when touring Manchu Picchu.
