All pick-up and travel arrangements were brilliant and on time. Just be aware that this is a LONG day with MANY [very uneven] steps when you get to Machu Picchu. You don’t just arrive by coach and arrive at the site itself. All at altitude. Still, an incredible sight to see.

The whole experience was great! A guide came to our Airbnb the night before to give us all the tickets we need and explained how the following day was going to go. The means for transportation were all very smooth and worked great. The tour of Machu Picchu was very informative and allowed us to see the most in the amount of time we had. Would absolutely recommend.
