Machu Picchu Is incredible. The engineering and masonry are breathe-taking and everything about the city including the location of the citadel is impressive. I suggest getting a knowledgeable guide because there’s so much to learn about this sacred site. The covid rules are excessive and ridiculous, and they’ve split the tours into different routes that don’t allow you to just wander free and take in the experience, but nonetheless it’s still an incredible place and a must see. Definitely sign up for huayna picchu or at least one other mountain as it allows you to look down on the city and see the whole thing from a different perspective.

The views were just amazing. My tickets were for 6am for Machu Picchu and 7am for the hike. We arrived about an hour late and still were able to do the activities. Highly recommend you print your tickets to Machu Picchu and Huayana Picchu because they will give you trouble if the tickets are not printed. Get a guide otherwise you’ll miss the point go going to Machu Pichu. Last but not least, DO NOT call the site ruins. It’s offensive to the locals.

It was an amazing adventure. Everyone should visit once in there lifetime. It's absolutely breathtaking. The Incas were an incredible and beautiful culture.

The tickets arrived on time and when there was a change in schedule they informed me

Organización, atención y manejo del tiempo es excelente
