We got a Sumaq special package to visit Machu Picchu that included many extras and made the trip very smooth. It all worked out beautifully. The hotel itself was very nice and the food was some of the best we had on our entire 10-day trip. Our package included two nights in a suite with a fireplace, a guided tour of the Manuel Ballon museum on our first afternoon (don't miss it, it's a lovely little museum with good exhibits to introduce you to MP), nightly pisco sours, two breakfasts and two dinners, tickets and a guide for MP including pickup at the hotel door on the bus up the mountain so we didn't have to stand in line, tickets and a guide to climb Huayna Picchu, two massages after our big day, and on our last day, our guide took us on a nice bird-watching walk to a waterfall, with a packed lunch from the hotel, before our afternoon train. We couldn't even squeeze in the cooking lessons on how to make ceviche! We did all our other arrangements ourselves elsewhere in Peru, including PeruRail tickets, but Sumaq made the Machu Picchu portion of the trip very special. Special thanks to Guido, our excellent guide!
