What people are saying about Aguas Calientes

My experience about the visit to the archeological zone of Machu Picho was great, to the extent that I was thrilled and could not speak. As for Get Your Guide they were always attentive, before and in the activity, explaining the process of the visit in detail, providing help phones that give you security in the enjoyment of the activity.

It was an amazing experience ! Despite having to wake up super early it’s worth it . We had an excellent guide who was very knowledgeable . Definitely once in a life time experience

Definitely book this package as there are so many steps of getting to Machu Picchu. So easy to just book the full day tour and have the ticketing, guiding in someone else’s hands

Machu Picchu is awesome. This trip is well organized and went through without any delay or trouble. Ricardo was the most helpful.

Highly recommended, safe and very respectful staff.
