“Machu Picchu express day to awesomeness!”
Reviewed by Jassir from Houston, United States on August 13th, 2013 I had been planning this trip for a long time. I couldn't stay more than 5 days in Peru so I needed to get a fast-track tour. This is more than I expected! Everything went smooth! from the picking up to the airport, train to Aguas Calientes, dropping off in the hotel and back to the airport. The hotel where I stayed was perfect for budget with an awesome location; just some blocks away from Plaza de las Armas and next to Mercado San Pedro. The view-peru staff attended all my demands without any hesitation; I sure will come to do business with this people again in the near future, next time I will try the Inca Trail 4day 3 night. Thanks view-peru for having made my dream come true!
