We booked a guided tour to Machu Picchu with Peru & U and the experience with our guide made it the highlight of our 9 week Latin America trip and one of the best days of our lives! From start to finish the communications we’re good, but the professional logistics they put together to: arrange a 1-2-1 with our guide at our hotel, escort us to and from MP Citadel, provide us with the best guide possible and arrange a fantastic quality tasting-menu lunch at the end… was phenomenal. We have to give the highest praise to our guide Joel Andre, who brought both the Incan Citadel and the MP Mountain climb to life. His knowledge of the site, the ancient traditions and their balanced spiritual thinking was enlightening. His careful consideration of our progress towards the summit was so appreciated as he just sensed when to stop to point out healing plants or beautiful wildlife. We were the oldest people doing this trip and succeeded thanks to Joel! Thanks GYG! Thanks Joel!

Nice walk up the Huayna Picchu mountain. Not as strenuous as Montaña Machu Picchu as the climb is shorter. The view is very nice and the subsequent tour through the ruins with a guide is also recommended. Only 4 stars because, as I said, I liked the Montaña Machu Picchu better and would like to make it pictorial.

Our day to Machu Picchu was cancelled because of the strike so we did not have tickets into the park 3 days later when the strike ended. Everyone told us we were screwed but I went online and found these tixs. I was worried they weren’t legit but they worked! Highly recommend these guys for last minute tix to Machu Picchu. Saved our trip!
