Machu Picchu is the lost city of Incas. There is lot of buildings and background of the place that need to be discovered. My guide was a great guy , he helped me navigate the places , took my pictures and directed me back to Huyana Picchu. He lacked a bit of English knowledge it made it a bit difficult for him to explain the background. He did his best with whatever his capability was

The guide was very professional, kind, helpful and knowledgeable. He spent the maximum time so that I could see all possible that I wanted to see in Machu Pichu. I saw group guide on the way but I would highly recommend to have a personal guide for yourself or family/friends. It’s a life time experience in Machu Pichu. It definitely is worth it!
