Organization for the transport and tickets are very well done, we have Angel arriving the evening before to explain everything which is so assuring. And thanks to the transport and ticket arrangements we were not caught by surprise with shortage of bus or train tickets. And the guide on site Victor was super informative and a great photographer who took so many great photos for us and explain some good historical details on sites. Highly recommended this trip!!!

We took the basic train option (beautiful). Everyone is very helpful. The day before the excursion the organizer came to our hotel to explain how the activity was going to take place and left us the tickets for buses and trains. The guide was in English and very prepared, she stopped to show us every detail, very good. Round trip very comfortable because by car and they even gave us a gift at the end of the day. Definitely recommended.

This company did a great job with every leg of the trip! Someone met me at my hostel when I got in to explain the plan for the day trip to Machu Picchu. The train ride was beautiful. We had a great guide that walked us around Machu Picchu and had lunch with us after. Would definitely recommend this company!
