A wonderful once in a lifetime experience that cannot be described in words. Arrive in good time, hire a guide to yourself and don’t rush. It’s a place you’ll never forget.

Who cannot give an Excellent review to this wonder? Only way to don't like it is if you are mad or crazy. Highly encourage to hire a profesional guide.

I arrived to MP the hard way, 4 days of hiking. So when you get to the citadel it was tough to contend with the "tourist" who got there the easy way. Our guides were super helpful in telling of the history of the citadel....More

Amazing, I recommend getting up and hiking to the summit before sunrise both for the stunning sunrise itself and to avoid the absolute hoards of people that plague Machu Picchu every day. Also, do not go on a Sunday!

Founded in 1470 you can see only stones. Literally nothing else. Not a statue, a painting, a ceiling, a mosaic, a floor, a writing. Nothing. It has been founded in 1470 so not so long ago. The place is a rip off for tourists but...More

Would I go again? No. Was it worth it? Yes! I think this place is already too crowded. Getting up there was kind of a struggle, as there are only those vans, I think it's a monopoly, so we had to wait with many others,...More

Hi, was there about 2 weeks ago. You don’t have to have a guide. Plenty of official guides, with badges, at the gate. Don’t know how much they cost. We didn’t climb Huaynu Picchu, we climbed Montana Picchu, but it’s the... More
