Machu Picchu By Train (2 Days)

By Peru Amazon Trips
For many visitors to Peru and even South America, a visit to the Inca city of Machu Picchu is the long-anticipated highpoint of their trip. In a spectacular location, it’s the best-known archaeological site on the continent. This awe-inspiring ancient city was never revealed to the conquering Spaniards and was virtually forgotten until the early part of the 20th century.

          I had a great time!
          Sandro was an amazing tour guide! He took great photos each step along the way, and he gave us a lot of information at each stop. He was also very good about keeping us on a schedule. I would highly recommend this tour!

          Must do if in Cusco
          Interesting stops, fascinating history, and loved the unique salt mines. It is a long day but a good one to rest up in between doing the big excursions around Cusco.

          We 100% recommend!!!
          My husband and I had the most fantastic time on this tour. I'm not sure even where to start, I can't praise it enough! If you're planning on booking any trip in Peru...this is the company to go with! Everyone went above and beyond to make our experience the best it could be. We were so out of our comfort zone with 4 days in the jungle, but the guides were absolutely fantastic. We didn't want for anything and they were so knowledgeable and friendly. Over two days, we stayed in two different lodges which meant we maximised our experience by staying in two locations. Both lodges were primative but you do have to be prepared for minimal comfort in the jungle. However, they were clean and had everything we needed. The lodge owners have gone above and beyond to ensure maximum comfort with beds and mosquitos nets and fully meshed walls. The food was great in both lodges. One was buffet style and the other we were served three courses at every sitting! Traditional Peruvian food but every dish was delicious! The guides were a highlight for us. Each one of them was so knowledgeable and they couldn't do enough for us. Alan, Jorge, Ivan and Danilo were fantastic. On the last day, Daniel took us all the way back to the bus station. I realised I'd left my phone in a restaurant and he even took me all the way back to get it, calling ahead to try to make sure it was safe. Because of Danilo, I got it back and I'm so grateful!! Thank you! On this trip we saw a huge variation of animals and insects including howler monkeys, dusky titi monkeys, squirrel Monkeys, yellow Belly piranas, macaws, tucans, caimans, capybaras, bullet ants, tarantulas, leaf cutter ants, capuchin monkeys (which we fed by hand), three striped frog, lizards and more. Activities included, visit to a clay lick, a 50 myr tower overlooking the rainforest tree tops, jungle walks (day and night), boat trips, caiman searching, pirana fishing, kayaking, monkey island, native family visit and other possible activities depending on the weather and season. We 100% recommend this trip to gain a deeper understanding of the rainforest!

          Nice day trip!
          This was a really fun day trip to grasp the Andean culture and understand more of the Incan empire. It is fast paced and a lot of driving but our guide, Juan Carlos, did an excellent job explaining everything in English and Spanish. Note: these are larger groups and to make it on time you have to stick together or you lose time at each location. There were three women in our group who were always late to the bus giving us less time everywhere else. If you book, be considerate of others on the tour.

          Must do Cusco tour
          Wow- what an interesting and diverse day! It’s a long day - about 12 hours but you see so many different and culturally significant sites. Jonathan, our guide, was informed, an excellent communicator, enthusiastic and ensured all our questions were answered. The lunch stop was excellent. Highly recommend this tour.

          Beautiful day touring the Sacred Valley
          We had a wonderful day visiting the Sacred Valley with our guide, Jonathan. He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the Sacred Valley. He was always willing to answer our many questions and take pictures for us. It is a very long day of sightseeing, and we were definitely exhausted by the end. We’re so glad we decided to take this tour!

          Best tour guide in Cusco
          The sacred valley is a must see tour. Jonathan was our guide, and went above and beyond delivering historical information and interesting factoids about all of the sites. He anticipated any delays (some people did not buy tickets prior to the tour) and got their site tickets in advance while they were exploring something else. As other reviewers have said, there are some stops where there is somewhat of a sales pitch while receiving an explanation of how goods are made. However, there is no expectation to make a purchase and prices weren't bad anyway. I recommend this tour to anyone.

          A trip full of learning and laughter!
          Had a really amazing time! The explanations were super well done, our Guide really mastered what he was taking about! They also gave a lot of time to take pictures, wich was awesome haha I laughed a lot and had a lot of fun, and the agency really helped me and my friend with some problems we had with our flight, and arranged transporte when we needed! The guide spoke very good english, and my favorite part was learning about how peru's tradicional fabrics are made. 100% recommend them!

          This tour was way too fast paced. They picked us on time and crammed is in an uncomfortable small bus- no overhead compartment to put our backpacks and we asked at least 3/4 times to put up the ac because it was too hot. They took us to 3 places were demonstrations were given on- processing alpaca threads, Maras salt and recognizing quality silver, giving us plenty of time afterwards so that we bought what was there. We would have appreciated more to spend more time in places like Chincheros and Pisaq. Afterwards, they took us to El Maizal Rest, which was overcrowded. Some of us didn’t get to eat dessert or salads because we had spent too much time on line. The tour guide apologized. In Ollantaytambo, the pace of the tour was so fast that we turned back because we couldn’t keep the pace. The guide didn’t notice or cared. When we got to Pisaq at 5:00pm, the employees didn’t allow us to go beyond a certain point because the place was closing at 5:30 and everyone had to be out by then. So we saw the cemetery from a distance and then rushed back to be dropped off close to Plaza de Armas. The tour company and guide do this everyday but for us, it is a once in a lifetime experience that we want to appreciate and cherish. Do this tour if you want a fast passed touristy tour that rushes through the places. Otherwise, split Sacred Valley in two days so you have a more enjoyable experience.

          Great Day
          The day tour was a lot of fun and it was very organized. Our tour guide, Jonathan, kept us all on a tight schedule. You see so much in one day and he provided a lot of insight for each place. We had a great time, but it was a 13 hour day. My only suggestion would be to cut the last stop at the silver mining/jewelry shop, this felt unnecessary and it extended our day.

        Very relaxed and excellently organised tour of Machu Picchu from Cusco. The transport was ontime to pick us up from our hotel in Cusco. The train ride was vy nice and photogentic.
