Trip to Cusco 2024 I was in Cusco for 4 days, traveling with friends, we visited Pisaq, Ollantaytambo, the archaeological park of Machu Picchu with the company Peru top Expierence. From Paraguay, the organization of the trip was in charge of the guide William Silva, super attentive to doubts and with the necessary information for the tour. In Cusco he welcomed us again and then we stayed at Prisma Hotel, good service. Then to go to Pisaq, to the train station in Ollantaytambo and to Machu Picchu, another guide from the company, Mr. Carlos Alfredo, accompanied us. In Aguas Calientes we stayed at the Andino hotel. Good attention. Good gastronomy in general, except the place called El Maizal that includes the bus tour to Ollantaytambo, from there they either change places or include a personal lunch in that day's tour. Super recommended @perutopexpierience to discover the wonders of Cusco! The flight from Lima to Cusco was by Jetsmart. Regular care. Many requirements for foreigners regarding luggage but not so much for nationals. They should improve that.

Inolvidable!! Hicimos varios tours laguna de Humantay, Montaña de 7 colores, Valle Sagrado, Machupicchu y City Tour, la coordinación estuvo muy bien, no tuvimos problemas ni con traslado o reservas, los guias fueron muy amables y los almuerzos y desayunos que eran parte del tour eran diversos y abundantes. Excelente servicio. Como recomendación revisar bien los horarios de los tour ya que inician super temprano 4:00am y terminan tarde, así que considera hacer 2 tours laguna y montaña y dia 3 valle sagrado que es mas tarde 7:30am y regresando de Machupicchu haz el tour por la ciudad en la tarde para descansar la mañana. A nosotros nos funciono perfecto! ;)

A great adventurous journey! If you would love to explore the surroundings of Machu Picchu but you're worried the 4 day hike might be too hard for you, this is the perfect option. We had a great time, beginning with the convenient and comfortable communication with our guide Manuel who supported us to organize the transport to the start of the treck and the hike itself was a unique experience that we don't want to miss. The hike itself rewarded us with the perfect first view on Machu Picchu on day one and we had the whole second day to explore the whole side more in detail. Accomodation, Food, Transport and a great guide is included in the price. Thanks to Manuel it was an great adventureous journey - thanks for that.
