It isn't easy to get to Machu Picchu. Advanced entry reservation requirements, planes, vans, trains and buses -- kind of a pain in the butt. But the experience is worth every ounce of effort. It is truly unforgettable. I hear they've changed their tour procedures,...More

Words or photos cant properly describe the beauty of this place. A must do.... Buses travel every 10 or so minutes from Aguas Calientes to Machu Picchu and likewise on the return trip. Just be mindful that you probably will have to wait a minimum...More
