There’s not much that needs to be said about how amazing of an experience Machu Picchu is. It’s definitely worth a visit, nestled amongst the Andes mountains it will take your breath away. If you are doing a day trip to Machu Picchu I would...More

Even though we prepared ourselves in advance , we were amazed and awestruck by the site. Everything about it was incredibly beautiful and wonderfully preserved, the site is clean and very well maintained and organised. We came on the afternoon shift so there weren’t too...More

We did it the lazy way. Train from Cusco, bus the the base of Machu Picchu and an experienced guide who took care of pretty much everything bar climbing the site. We got lost and ended up at the Sun Gate which provided stunning views...More

We had a tour guide that showed us around the ruins and we learnt so much. I still reference that information and experience today. It was so much fun and the altitude wasn't too bad! Defiantly a bucket list trip!

I highly advice you to not take the bus, but instead go by foot, because it's not only for free, but you can at least tell yourself that you've achieved something (not how the lame people who go by train and bus ;)) The ruins...More

Do yourself a big favor and get the earliest bus to get to Machu Picchu for sunrise, it makes the trip extra special. Our Travel Agency who we booked with Uncover Latin America arranged our whole trip for us and they took care of all...More

A must for any bucket list. The only bad thing was the weather due to heavy rains the night before and up until opening at 6am. Well worth the money spent to get to Machu Picchu from Canada. Standing looking down at the ruins you...More

You should try & do Rainbow Mountains when you are in Cusco, I am really sorry I didn't make it there as I ran out of time, and so cheap to do if the hostel you stay at arranges it, some people preferred it to Machu Pichu
