Incas built some many constructions in the middle of the jungle and at the top of a mountain!! Again, the constructions are pretty well preserved, enjoy your time at Machu Picchu

Truly Awe Inspiring

One of the true wonders of the world and a big one on our bucket list and it didn't disappoint - Weather not that good but we were lucky and having been told by one of our guides the weather wouldn't clear we insisted on the trek to the top and soon after we reached the summit the sky's cleared - The History and the views and just fantastic and something you have to witness for yourself - the complete site is wonderful and so fascinating

astonishing visit

Although much of the ruins have in effect been restored, this did not detract from the overall experience. We would strongly advise the use of a qualified guide who can provide cultural, historical and religious context as this will materially enhance the value and interest of the experience.

The ruins are an integral part of what makes up the Machu Picchu and are a must see. You should definitely take the time to descend and walk amongst this beautiful city.

Amazing history behind these ruins in the fore front of the mountain, especially if you have a guide with you who can explain the history behind them.

Seeing all this history is truely awsome and unbelievable. You just have to sit and take it all in to wonder that you are really there. As other Machu Picchu ruins, take water, hat, walking shoes. Must be able to climb steps, and be fit.

Great place to visit
May 2018 • Couples
Our guide was amazing with all the information he had. To see these ruins and how they have survived over the centuries is amazing. The views were astounding and it was reasonably easy to get around. The bus ride from the town to the ruins was great just to see what great drivers these guys are and how they passed one another on such a winding and narrow road. Would go back again and do it all over again really worth it.

Fantastic and as awe inspiring as its publicity. Well organised transport system from nearest town. It does get busy even though there is a limit to the number of visitors each day. Use a guide to get the best from the visit. Lots of walking and steps so be prepared
