If you plan a day trip to Machu Picchu, I recommend to get started early, I stay in Cusco and it took 5 hrs to get to Machu Picchu, first 30 mins taxi ride to train station and then 4 hrs train ride to Machu Picchu Pueblo and then another 25 mins bus ride up the mountain. When you buy the ticket, it will ask you time of arrival so make sure you calculate your travel time accordingly because there are limited on how many visitors allow in the park per day.

Highly recommended - book here, pay through getyourguide and have tickets sent to your email. No risk of scam as it is all handled by getyourguide. But please remember, that you need additional bus tickets to/from Machu Picchu train station to the entry of Machu Picchu. The cost is 24$ and tickets can be purchased on spot (even with credit card) and buses depart every 5 min.

Franco was our Guide for Machu Picchu and he was excellent. He was knowledgeable and explained everything very clearly. In addition he was able to judge his clients and he knew when to slow down and when we needed to rest for a bit. He insured we had the best experience possible. I would highly recommend Franco to other travelers.
