Amazing! Awsome!! A Bucket List Destination.
The train ride itself from/to Cusco/Machu Picchu is a teriffice event. The bus ride from Machu Picchu to the site is also an event to be remembered (somewhat scarey)!
Visiting the site is a fantastic experience!! The altitude had no effect on us.
Because of being medically short of breath, mobility was an issue; however, our guide, Guia Yanina, from Peru Premium Travel, picked out a trail allowing outstanding views. Even found a bench for us while she narrated info about the site. Because of the mobility problem was unable to take the three day ship tour and was able to arrange the overnight private tour: ship to Machu Picchu & overnight; sightseeing Machu Picchu and return to ship the next day.
Whatever suits you, time permitting, you must visit Machu Picchu.An exciting view of the site; thrilling bus ride & additional scenic train ride all make for a memorable experience.
