Wow! Travel now ,and dont wait to go to Matcu Picchu. The Mountain was I expected. Amazing fascinating. Place . We did travel from Cuzco from 4 am and catch the bus to train to ollaytumbo for a 7 am departure . We Arrive at Aqua before noon , and went to Matchu Picchu following meet up with the private guide to take the 8am bus to Mach Picchu and was back by noon at AQUA C . We had lunch, and took the train before 2 pm and arrive at OLLAYtumbo at 4 , and rented a taxi back to Cuzco , which we find it much better than sharing a shuttle , or bus . Something to consider.. -Peru Rail with Bus from Cuzco to OLLay . -Dont need to bus back from OLLay to Cuzco, Consider taking a private taxi for 20 US. Buy a Bus ticket with MP entrance and with a Private guide . Aways rent a newer car with air-con. Its make the travel easier on hot long drive . The tour guide will make your tour easier. be nice to them at all d time , and pls TIP them well. Read Peru guide on how to tip.

The trip is organized very well, choose the early pick up to arrive early at the lagoon. The breakfast and lunch are excellent and diversified. The hike is moderate to difficult but the view worth every step. Totally recommend

A perfect day trip - definitely recommend joining the Red Valley hike! Such a gorgeous area, and so much more of the mountains to enjoy besides just Rainbow Mountain.

We left in the morning, we had an excellent breakfast after that we hiked to the rainbow mountain. The hike is moderate but the view is worth. The lunch is great
