A representative of the tour group, Joseph, met us at the train station, as we were starting our tour not long after the train arrived. I'm not sure what magic happened behind the scenes, but a staff member from our hotel (Inkaterra Machu Picchu) and the the tour group representative coordinated themselves and met us together. Joseph led us through the small town and waited until the bus arrived. We had purchased our bus tickets to go up the mountain in Cusco. It ended up being a nice small group (our family of 4 adults and a solo traveller,) but this is likely because we were travelling at the end of April which isn't the high season. Our tour guide Katti met us at the entrance. She was friendly and knowledgeable. We learned much about the history and buildings, and her English was excellent. She took us through the site at just the right pace, not too fast or slow, and there was just the right amount of information. We really enjoyed the tour.
Our guide was able to shift priorities effectively as we found ourselves with less time available than originally planned. He was just right with his verbiage, extremely knowledgeable with the culture, history and archeological sites, etc. He spoke good English and was patient with our questions and desire for stops to take photos.
Did the Cusco: Planetarium and Night Tour with Dinner and Pisco Sour with Percy. I highly recommend this tour as a way to get started in Cusco before venturing out. Please request Percy! You will not be dissapointed!
