Words on a computer do not do this place any justice, simply awe inspiring. We had the trip of a lifetime and it´s all thanks to Chris and the whole team at Uncover Latin America the travel company we booked our trip with. They really...More
This place is truly magical- perched high on top of a mountain in the Andes. Nothing can prepare you for the emotions you will feel visiting this place.
The views are out of the world on a clear day.

Having had a bit of a nightmare with the tour we booked through, we weren't sure if getting up at the crack of dawn to get a bus to see Machu Pichu was going to be worth the hassle we'd experienced so far.
If this is not on your Bucket List then enter it now! We did the one day trek up here which was hard work but so worth it. The view over this from the Sun Gate is something not to be missed.

Thank goodness the Spanish never found this sanctuary that honors the rain and thunder.The Incan culture were amazing architects and builders of there temples. Using the rock formations as part of the structures was necessary and pure genius.

This is an amazing place to visit, worth every step of the journey however you arrive. We added the Huayna Picchu hike and were very glad that we did for the incredible views. Interesting to learn of how the Incas lives at this high altitude.
I'm still fascinated from the Inca culture and what our guide shared with us that day, a 3 day trip with visiting the Machu Picchu and alternative Rainbow Mountain. We had the morning session as we stayed in Aguas Calientes, tried to be the first...More

We hired a guide - located right before you enter - and it enhanced our exploration. However, it seems that they’re on a two hour schedule. With that in mind - there’s really no lag time - the guides keeps you on track so that you do finish within the 2hr timeframe. And once in - there’s no backtracking. So we felt a little rushed and no time to just sit and take in the different areas. We honestly felt like returning the next day to have a more relaxed “be in the moment” visit. (One day with guide and then another at our own pace). It’s some place that will leave you in awe. Have fun.
