Overall, the trip was really great. One day before departing for Aguas Calientes we went to the office of the travel agency in Cusco (right in the main tourist area) and we took all travel documents and vouchers. They could have brought them to our hotel but we were in the area anyway so we stopped by. We also got detailed explanations on what to do and and what to expect and iit was really helpful. Hotel pickup was right on time. The guides were great, both for the sacred valley (1st day) and for MachuPicchu (2nd day) and we had a great time in all 3 Inca sites. The hotel in Aguas Calientes was also nice. Don`t expect luxury but I have no complaints whatsoever over it. Expect to pay extra 70 soles for entry in the 2 Inca sites in the Sacred Valley (ollantaytambo and pisac) and around 60-70 soles extra for lunch in the first day. Overall it was really good value for money.
We didn’t have to worry about anything. Everything was planned out for us which is great. Upon their pickup (the first day) we received train tickets to Aguas Calientes, bus ticket to go up to Machu Picchu and entrance ticket. For each step there was someone waiting for us to help us get to the next place.
The visit is spectacular, I will never forget it. The guide gave us some great explanations and was very kind. The climb to Huayna-Picchu although it is somewhat hard is worth the view from the top.
The trip was well arranged from a to z, with a good structure of locations, from the Sacred Valley to the Machu Picchu. Only the lunch on the first day was not what we would have chosen ourselves.
Safety and tranquility in all activities performed. Careful staff and surrounds us with a lot of attention. Collaborative.
