What people are saying about Cusco

I travelled to Machu Pichu from Cusco. I booked through Peru&U for the entry tickets to the site and to acquire a private guide two months in advance. All the arrangements were well organized by the company and they kept in touch throughout the two months before my trip occurred to keep me informed of what to expect. The guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable about Machu Pichu. He took care from the moment we arrived in Machu Pichu Puebla to show us what we needed to do so we didn’t miss our travel up to the site, and he was very understanding about the effect the elevation would have on our breathing capacity and didn’t rush us through the site.

If you're not with a tour, definitely hire a guide at the entrance. In Peru, they are professionals, attending 5 years of university to be licensed. She even helped frame the best photos along the way. $60 well spent!

Very fun experience, I would recommend it! And the ticket sales staff are very helpful in making sure you know everything, so this was a helpful site to get the ticket from.

If you have the opportunity take circuit 1-2!!! Besides that great experience!!

William was a great guide. We learned a lot. What an amazing place!
