The guide who was assigned to us brought us through the ancient ruins and told us about the Inca culture from a personal point of view which we appreciate it a lot. Conversations during the tour are not just the touristic parts of it, he also shared with us his personal experiences leading many people through Machu Picchu on important days such as the summer and winter solstice, and this adds to the whole experience of being a part of history, and experiencing history with our senses. Understanding the cultural significance of the ruins and the latest discoveries, while also telling us about the current excavation progress, we also got to realise that this ancient wonder is far from being fully understood.

Christian, our guy, was a very nice person.. he pick us up at our hotel then take us to the bus to Machu Picchu's entrance (bus ticket is excluded). He took us to many great photo spot at the site, while explained us the history of the site. The best thing was he allowed us to move at our pace, so we didn't need to get rush, so we really enjoy our trip within Machu Picchu site, along with all breathaking scenes at the site. And we finished our adventure at the site less than 3 hours, before take the bus back to Aguas Calientes. We extremely happy with the tour. Thank you very much Christian!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
