We are going to Peru for the first time in early October, we want to see Machu Picchu, but trying to find the most economical way to do so. We looked into a couple of tours, that was pricing about 300$-400$ per eprson for tour and hotel in Cusco, plus an extra $ 150 pp for flight to Cusco from Lima.
This seems so expensive to us. Is it best to simply get to Cusco, find our own hotel, and take the train to Machu and do our own tour?? Or is getting package deal really the only way to go?
Any hotel recommendations for Cusco?
