I arrived to MP the hard way, 4 days of hiking. So when you get to the citadel it was tough to contend with the "tourist" who got there the easy way. Our guides were super helpful in telling of the history of the citadel....More

Okay, MP is amazing. If you're considering it, do it. It's so much work to get here; go to Lima, to Cusco, take a train, get up early, take a bus, make sure you have a ticket like months ago, get all those shots and...More

Amazing, I recommend getting up and hiking to the summit before sunrise both for the stunning sunrise itself and to avoid the absolute hoards of people that plague Machu Picchu every day. Also, do not go on a Sunday!

Founded in 1470 you can see only stones. Literally nothing else. Not a statue, a painting, a ceiling, a mosaic, a floor, a writing. Nothing. It has been founded in 1470 so not so long ago. The place is a rip off for tourists but...More

Would I go again? No. Was it worth it? Yes! I think this place is already too crowded. Getting up there was kind of a struggle, as there are only those vans, I think it's a monopoly, so we had to wait with many others,...More

Machu Picchu is worth the visit, so I will skip the reason to visit and talk about the journey to get there and back. I purchased tickets for the Vista Train from Cuzco to Machu Picchu. The online purchase was easy but you still must...More

Everyone should afford themselves the luxury to visit Machu Picchu. I was personally not convinced I needed to go until I saw it. We were lucky to have a beautiful day and guide who showed us all around the side in about 2-3 hours. We...More

Hi, was there about 2 weeks ago. You don’t have to have a guide. Plenty of official guides, with badges, at the gate. Don’t know how much they cost. We didn’t climb Huaynu Picchu, we climbed Montana Picchu, but it’s the... More
