It took us about 90-100 minutes from Auges Calientes to the entrance gates of Machu Picchu. We were there around 8:30-8:45. It did not takes us long to get in. After that we went straight up to Machu Picchu Mountain. This hike took us about two hours up and one hour down. You should be there early, because the Mountain closes quite early. So in order to spend some time on the mountain, enjoying the landscape, the views and taking some nice shots, you should be up there around 11 am. At the latest. The clouds move rapidly. Do not become desperate if Machu Picchu is covered in clouds for the first 30 minutes. Just be patient and wait. Enjoy the wind, the height and the view. It is absolutely worth it.
This hike was wonderful. It was a rather tough climb up 2500 hundred stairs -- not fit for someone having trouble with the altitude or not capable of a strenuous hike! But it was an amazing view once we got to the top and worth every step.
Jean Franco was an amazing tour guide. He catered the entire tour to what we were most interested in and was sure to take spectacular photos from spots he knew would make beautiful memories for us.
A trip not to be missed! I’m so glad we were on the first bus up and got to walk around the grounds before it got super crowded.
The booking experience went well, there was always someone available to answer my questions.
