I 1000% recommend this tour, with superior category train. This was an amazing experience from start to finish! Starting with the booking process, Monica was very helpful in making sure we had all documents ready for the trip. Luis, who came by our hotel the day before, made sure my sister and I understood every part of our journey, answered every question, and were prepared with all the correct tickets. He also met us in the morning and was there to greet us when we returned from our day. The scenic ride from Cusco to the train station was nice. Our guides for the day, Wilson and Edgar were patient and made sure we were safe every step of the way. the Vistadome train ride was really a step above. What an amazing ride! Francisco was the absolute best, the dancers were lively and the violin was a beautiful touch. After touring Machu Picchu, we had a light lunch with stunning views. We did not have to worry about a thing and we were able to spend the entire day stress free and happy.
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
This was a wonderful experience. Doing it through a package deal is the way to go. I had planned to organize it on my own, but getting there is a bit of an ordeal. Its 1 hour Luxury Van ride from cusco to the train station, 1.5 hours on the train to the town of Machu Picchu, 30 min bus trip up the mountain to Machu Picchu. Having someone take care of all of that was really nice. Great Experience.
Pickup at nearby hotel was smooth and local tour guides were all excellent with communications, schedule for long day trip and also with help and assistance with train boarding. Olga, our Machu Picchu guide from LimaTours was super special and extremely knowledgeable. Great activity and excellent tour.
Great experience! Awesome guide, well organized, every step very cordial folks. Super worth it!
