Everything went as expected!

On the day I decided to buy a ticket to Machu Picchu, I don't know what happened, but the official Peruvian ticket sales website was down! I did a lot of research to guarantee my ticket and GYG had the best price, being practically the same value as buying on the official website! Everything went well with the ticket and the tour was wonderful!

Absolutely worth the hike. Stunning view. A must-see!

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.

Great experience. The only room for improvement is that I didn’t realize tickets would be sent via separate app (WhatsApp) and hadn’t checked my account for those details. Was still able to get tickets printed at main office in Machu Picchu Pueblo, but was a bit confused about the process.
