Visited afternoon, then following morning. We went with a tour group but could go anywhere. The main city was fabulous as was the Sun Gate (what a view), and the log bridge. Touted as one of the world’s best and totally lived up to expectations.

We spent 2 days at Machu Picchu. Magical. One day with guide and second day on our own at our leisure. Spiritual place with amazing views and great people. Town of Aguas Calientes is so fun.

In my opinion Machupicchu is overrated. In the morning it is often very cloudy so that there is hardly anything to see besides hordes of people. I don't see why this is supposed to be a world wonder. The only thing which makes it nice...More

You currently do not have to have a guide. Many people entered without a guide when we were there a few weeks ago. From what we heard that rule will not be enforced until next year.
