Apart from the rather troubled Eve, characterized by last-minute program changes caused by the local agency (then repaired by an honest economic reimbursement by GetYourGuide), we can be satisfied with the tour. The train journey is a nice way to reach Aguas Calientes and the visit to Machu Picchu was very pleasant, thanks also to our guide Rony.

Machu Picchu was an absolute great experience

On the evening before the tour, the tour guide came to the hotel and talked to us about the course of the tour. The next morning we were picked up and taken to the bus station. At the end of the bus trip a guide took us to the train. After the train ride we were again expected by name tag The next morning we were taken to the Machu Picchu where our tour guide was already waiting for us The tour guide was very competent and told us all about the history of Machu Picchu in the evening back to the train - Escorted from the train to the bus and back to the hotel brought

Nothing left to chance and met at every turn and no problems.

We would recommend this tour to especially older folks because nothing was left to chance. We had all our entry tickets given to us at the beginning of our tour and all drivers and guides very kind and super knowledgeable on the way. Excellent service and we enjoyed our group of two and the convenience. Many thanks!
