the experience lived in Machu Picchu was simply magical, spiritual, I felt many good vibrations. It’s definitely a place you should visit before you leave this life.

we travelled up on the train and booked two tickets , one for the afternoon for the general circuit and one for next morning to hike up the mountain , I really did this as wanted to cover my experience due to the everchanging weather weather , on the first day we arrived and then bought bus tickets ( no lines) , they only let you queue up near to your entrance time which i thought was a good idea , we hired a local guide whilst waiting in the line ($60), this turned out to be a very good move as didn't really want to deal with this once at the entrance gate , it appears in the afternoon they are not as strict as the morning so we were basically able to walk around the whole place (except mountain), also helps having a gude as he can take you to all the best places for photos , as for the place itself its absolutely amazing and definitely worth the long journey to get there , weather was also perfect !!
the next morning it was raining and very low cloud cover so we didn't bother going up for the mountain walk as wouldn't have been able to see anything, just spent time in the town before heading back to Cusco on the train

Excellent trip with Terra Quechua Peru on the tour from the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu for 2 days and 1 night! Amazing services! The company always cared about us at all times, the truth is 1000 points!
Our guide kept us up to speed and explained the history and meaning of everything we asked him. Very organized and attentive to everyone. The excursion has been very complete and we have enjoyed the sites. Very comfortable, clean and safe transportation, super delicious food. Also always on time. The hotel in Aguas Calientes was very comfortable and had a good breakfast, with a very good location.
The coordination in general was perfect, highly recommended and worth the price, it has been one of the tours that I have enjoyed the most, I would not hesitate to do it again.

We did this as part of a day trip out of Cusco on the train. It makes for a long day, but so worth it for the views and the history. We'd booked our entrance ticket and train in advance. Once we got off the train, we bought our tickets for the bus and got in line the bus line (it takes you up a series of switchbacks to the ruins and much better than walking). While in line, we found and booked an English speaking guide to go with us on the bus and take us through the ruins. Having that guide made all the difference. I can see that it would be quite confusing on your own so highly recommend finding a guide. She charged $60 (USD) for 4 of us and was extremely knowledgeable.

We had a visit to Machu Picchu on 10/05. The main feedback is about the organization: the staff is totally unfriendly and the organization of the paths/tickets is the most stupid in this world. There are no clarity/information which ticket to buy in order to see certain views, there is no single ticket to attend all the places of Machu Picchu. We pay plenty of money for everything: train, bus, entrance but still can’t get best experience. Totally illogical system aimed to grab as much as possible money from the tourists. Dislike

Machu Picchu is extraordinary.
I came for the first time several years ago. At that time you were able to take your time enjoying every view and moment, take pictures from every angle and with every light, meditate and make it a real spiritual experience.
Now you have to chose one of four paths, so you don't get to see the whole place, you are pushed like cows in a corral to finish an be kick out of the park ASAP.

I wish i was powerful to start a boycutt till authorities realize their mistake and give us back the real Machu Picchu experience.

I made the 2 days and 1 night trip to Machu Picchu with Terra Quechua Peru and I had an excellent service from the first contact. We found them through an internet search and they were the only ones who responded right away. From that moment everything was perfect, they complied with absolutely everything they offered, their punctuality, kind attention and availability to attend to each of our needs exceeded all our expectations. Our guide Jhonatan was very professional and made our tour to Machu Picchu an unforgettable experience.
Something additional that we loved is that his staff is totally local, Cuzqueños proud to show their culture and that is worth a lot to us! We are already thinking about our next visit and of course it will be with them.

If you are out at Machu Picchu, you probably are there to see Machu Picchu so it won't take much time to convince you to go. But, in case you are still debating: yes, it's worth it. It's just as jaw-dropping and spectacular as it looks in the photos.

I was there for multiple days as part of a volunteer trip. Working side-by-side with the local rangers, let me tell you they do an AMAZING job keeping the site pristine.

A lifetime dream realised. It lived up to expectation, the 'old mountain' (literal translation of Machu Picchu in Quechua), didn't disappoint.
A marvel in architecture. Often referred to as the "Lost City of the Incas", it is the most familiar icon of Inca civilization. The Incas built the estate around 1450 but abandoned it a century later, at the time of the Spanish conquest. Structures at Machu Picchu were built with a technique called “ldquo ashlar.” Stones are cut to fit together without mortar which is incredible. It is believed that the stones were hoisted up the mountain without the aid of animals or wheels.
Machu Picchu is made up of more than 150 buildings ranging from baths and houses to temples and sanctuaries.
The compound contains more than 100 separate flights of stairs. Most of the individual staircases were carved from one slab of stone.
Truly awe inspiring views!

We were very well attended by Bioandean Expeditions; We did tours in Cuzco, Puno and the Peruvian jungle and we were very satisfied. Very attentive and qualified staff, made my trip to the country much easier. I recommend it to everybody.
After two days to acclimatize in Cuzco, I left very early for the Inca Trail, 4 days and 3 nights I would take the trip to get to Machu Picchu on foot, I did not want to arrive by train at all, it was never in my plans.
The walks lasted a few hours, we made stops to eat, the team of porters and cook prepared the dining tent at each stop and they waited for us with delicious Peruvian food. it was an incredible experience! Everyone should try it, it has a wonderful landscape, history and culture.
