We had a wonderful time. Our tour guide was excellent. He was proud of his heritage, and eager to share it with us. His enthusiasm was contagious. He understood how to ensure that we hit every stop where the beat photos could be taken, and he did a great job of shepherding our group while keeping us both entertained and educated.

The tour was excellent organized. I was picked up on time, the train and bus were nicely aligned and our tourguide was knowledgeable and extremely friendly. I have learned a lot about Machu Picchu, took amazing pictures and did not felt rushed for a minute. I definitely recommend to take this tour if you want to visit Machu Picchu.
