Reviews

The tour was very good. Traxperience has organised the tour very well and the tour guide has done a very good job. The first day is a very nice tour on the trail in the andes mountains. There are beautiful plants and amazing views into the valleys. The waterfall gives the oppertunity to take lunch in a beautiful setting and the inka village in the mountain with the terrace farm plots is very well peserved and deserves time for exploration. At the end of the first day is the first view of Machu Picchu. To really enjoy it some fitness helps. The second day is Machu Picchu. It is as impressive as it is on the pictures you see everywhere. Machu Picchu is surounded by mountains that provide the setting. There are many beautiful views first from above and then inside. The buildings and the stories behind all of the buildings like trade, vacation, military and religion are very interesting and have been very well explained by Maribel. There are serveral inka houses with traditional roves that have a very effective design. Ask for the natural materials and their purpose. This tail is for everyone who likes a tour to machu picchu with a hotel room for the night.
