The tour was very well organized and well worth seeing. The different guides were great. We were at Machu Picchu early and were able to anticipate the large number of visitors. The free time after Machu Picchu in Aguas Calientes was a bit too long for me personally. PS Don't be fooled by the pictures, in the Valle Sagrado you will not visit Moray (circular terraces) but the fortress Ollantaytambo.

Too expensive for the service provided. Among the points that could be improved: Day 1 visit to the Sacred Valley: tour with more than 25 people forcing them to go to a large bus instead of using the vans like the rest of the tours that visited the area. This caused delays in controlling people's visiting times, so that in our case we could not finish the visit to ollataytambo in a normal way. I can still say that the guide was still great and did what he could for that. We would find out about almost everything and it would give us time to get to the train. The organization of the visit in terms of tickets and schedules was a bit chaotic until the last minute. The train to Ida was quite an uncomfortable train, although the return train was very good. In short, very high price for the services and organization thereof, when with local agencies or on your own you save at least 40%
