It's safe to visit, this is an amazing place
Dec 2020
Finally were able to come to Peru, doubting to not making it in 2020. Even if it was strange to wander around with masks all the time, the guys from exploor did an exceptional job throughout our entire stay in Cusco. Peter was glorious, such a passionate guide. Happy we had him with us.
All the logistics, from the private transportation to the train, they always made temperature checks, alcohol was available wherever we were, and everyone wore masks.
The good thing is, that the amount of entrances is limited, we were lucky that exploor helped us organizing last-minute tickets, but you're paid off when you enter. There are almost no travelers around and everyone keeps a safe distance. We highly enjoyed Machu Picchu, it's impressive and even better with less tourists! Glad we made it, and hope Cusco will bloom soon again, it's a beautiful place.

Must see
Dec 2020
Just visited Machu Picchu with my son and what an amazing historical site...the views, the history, the rich cultural beauty, the architecture...not crowded at all..probably less than a 100 people in the citadel....despite the rainy season we lucked with sunny skies...Huana Picchu is closed at the moment so you can only visit Machu Picchu...also the path to the Sun Temple is temporary closed...most of the longer hiking tours are still closed however was told that the 2 day / 1 night hike is open now...while a guide is not required, I'd certainly recommend getting one...the guides are no longer allowed to congregate at the site entrance so you have to get one in Agues Caliente...your hotel can arrange it for you...we paid $60 (which includes $10 tip) and it was well worth it...our guide Hilberto spent more than 3 hours on site with us and was a wealth of knowledge.

Very good place to pick up pesents

Inexpensive gifts that can be picked up for friends. Sometimes you need toys and christmas presents, scarfs for the people for back home and talking points at the office. The guide at the corner store is very helpful.

All the magic of the Inca citadel ...
Nov 2019
Visiting the "Santuario Histórico de Machu Picchu" is indeed a magical experience to anyone! We hear so much about its legends, its energy, its mysticism ... If you are thinking about going, keep your focus and, as soon as the world gets back to normal (or at least to the "new normal"), start packing for a unique lifetime experience! The Inca citadel had its construction started in the 15th century and was abandoned by the time of the Spanish conquest in the following century. Surprisingly, the sanctuary has never been touched by any of the earthquakes that have hit Peru on several occasions, and the Spaniards never reached the citadel. It was simply abandoned by its nearly 1,000 inhabitants and, as time passed, nature reclaimed it back. In 1911, American historian Hiram Bingham "discovered" the nearly intact ruins and their magnificiency was unveiled to the world. If you have not yet made up your mind, remember that "Machu Picchu" was appointed by Unesco, in 1983, a "World Heritage Site" and it was included, in 2000, among the "New Seven Wonders of the World"! Rush and let "Machu Picchu" bewitch you! Enjoy!

Beautiful lifetime experience
Jun 2020 • Family
The only nevative I had was when my brother and I bought authentic peruvian guitars and drums. They forced us to leave the instruments at the gate when we had planned to meditate with the alpacas and play soft music atop the mountain ranges. Regardless the three day hike carrying all of that stuff up with only to not be able to bring it in with us was rough everything else was amazing the guides were amazing we drank with them and had tons of fun. The ruins were beautiful unlike anything ive ever seen in my life. If I had gone a day later I would have done the trip with jim carrey

Machupicchu is an extraordinary place.
Aug 2019
It is a unique experience to go there on the one hand it is very quiet and you enjoy the beautiful view there is, it is ideal to go with your family however some roads can be a bit complicated so it is worth thinking about if you are taking very young children or in your arms, if you are someone who is dehydrated a lot, consider carrying a bottle with a lot of water.

It was a blessed trip. The weather was amazing, transportation was smooth, the site was not so crowded. The Inca Site is just exactly as in pictures that are on the websites. There are many travel guides on visiting the site. I read many of those guides before the trip, and I felt that I appreciated more when I was at the site. Totally worth it.

If You Only Visit 1 Place in South America -- This is It! Everything I Dreamed Of.
Oct 2019
Machu Picchu was one of the top items on my Bucket List. It was everything I dreamed of....Awesome, breathtaking views at every turn. Machu Picchu is the Lost City of the Incas and was never sacked by the Spanish, because they never found it. The city of up to 1,000 inhabitants was simply abandoned by the Incas and left for nature to reclaim. This architectural marvel has withstood the ravages of time. Over the years, the cities of Lima and Cusco have been destroyed by several major eathquakes -- but Machu Picchu was hardly touched. Machu Picchu was "discovered" by Hiram Bingham in 1911 and designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. It is Peru's most visited site with 400,000 visitors annually. About 30% of the site has been restored. The high altitude (7,710 ft) can be a challenge -- give yourself plenty of time, so that you can take it slowly and drink plenty of water. There are no food outlets (so eat in town before you visit) and restrooms are only located at the entrance/exit. Some sections have limited access restricted to a few hours in the morning (before the day tourists arrive). TRULY AMAZING!!!! IF YOU ONLY VISIT ONE PLACE IN SOUTH AMERICA -- THIS IS IT!!!!

The word BREATHTAKING is not enough!
Mar 2020
One of the Wonders of the World which will leave your mouth open and will take your breath away. Always a dream to come here and now we fulfilled it. We went there twice, once after arrival on the first day and the next day from the opening time. Still unbelievable how the Incas managed to build this place. We also did the hike to Huayna Picchu, which was exhausting but totally worth it. Weather was changing quickly, so be prepared for everything. We are grateful that we had the opportunity to see this magical place on earth. Just go there to see it.

Machu Picchu
May 2019
We traveled to Machu Picchu by train and then bus from Cusco! Wow, wow wow! This must be on every bodies bucket list and it was great to arrive on a beautiful sunny and clear day! It is believed that Machu Picchu was constructed as an estate for the Inca emperor Pachacuti, some time in the mid 1400's It is considered the most familiar and amazing icon of Inca civilisation and on arrival it is easy to see why. Thankfully it was never discovered by the Spanish during colonial times, in fact it was unknown to the outside world until 1911. As you would expect, Machu Picchu is built in the classical Inca style, with polished, dry stone walls. Rightly so, it is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is thought by some to be one of the new Seven Wonders of the World & I couldn't agree more. I'm sure no one would visit Peru without making the journey to MP, the Peruvians have made the whole experience straightforward, from booking the tickets, getting the train and bus and gaining entrance. Every step is straightforward and makes the whole experience worthwhile and easy. As an aside, my mobility is impaired due to MS, and although at altitude, I still didn't feel deterred from taking the trip. I was not able to circumvent the whole site but was still able to navigate the key sights. I'm so glad I came.
