info Info about this incredible tour

A tour to Machu Picchu is what many people call their most beautiful experience in Perú.

Unfortunately, the typical group tours are characterized by large groups, pickup delays, crowded buses and unmotivated guides that present their memorized Machu Picchu scripts. Due to the group size, it’s often difficult to follow everything the guide says and to ask all the questions you want.

With us, you can forget about these points as we’ll make sure the most romantic moment during your Peru tour will be impeccable. Not only do we cover all the must-visit spots of the ancient city of the Incas but we also visit the hidden spots normal groups don’t get to visit. These spots are perfect for some unforgettable couple shots that capture the magic of your Machu Picchu visit. Prepare yourself for vivid stories of our passionate guide that will make you feel like you are time traveling.

If you’re short on time, this day tour to Machu Picchu from Cusco is the way to go for you. Even though a lot of time will be spent on transfers (cars and trains), the experience is well worth it. Afterwards, you’ll say that the dollars spent were worth it, instead of regretting for a lifetime that this tour turned out differently than expected.
