A representative of the tour group, Joseph, met us at the train station, as we were starting our tour not long after the train arrived. I'm not sure what magic happened behind the scenes, but a staff member from our hotel (Inkaterra Machu Picchu) and the the tour group representative coordinated themselves and met us together. Joseph led us through the small town and waited until the bus arrived. We had purchased our bus tickets to go up the mountain in Cusco. It ended up being a nice small group (our family of 4 adults and a solo traveller,) but this is likely because we were travelling at the end of April which isn't the high season. Our tour guide Katti met us at the entrance. She was friendly and knowledgeable. We learned much about the history and buildings, and her English was excellent. She took us through the site at just the right pace, not too fast or slow, and there was just the right amount of information. We really enjoyed the tour.
Hi! The bus trip to the train and the train journey to Machu Picchu (enjoyed the train!) were good but sadly the return journey on both were not. The return train compartment had a constant movement which stopped even tea or coffee being offered and the return journey in the van was very cramped. I believe that there is an option to take the train right back to Cusco? If we had known about this we would definitely have opted for this. Our guide was great, he was very informative and a nice chap. We really enjoyed our experience and have recommended to all (who have listened!) that they need to follow in our footsteps. Thank you!
We had a fantastic day on our tour. The tour guide Luis was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable and also very friendly. The lunch buffet was delicious too. We couldn't ask for a better day.
Definitely book this package as there are so many steps of getting to Machu Picchu. So easy to just book the full day tour and have the ticketing, guiding in someone else’s hands
Include the ticket prices on the tour advert first. I came with barely enough cash as I got the email while I was already out in the city.
