Oh my God! Machu Picchu is beautiful beyond words. What a great experience!
The logistics of the trip were seamless. Not too much waiting around anywhere. Lunch was great. But the highlight of it all was Machu Picchu itself. How did they build this magnificent city? And the site that they chose to build it on would be mindblowing even if nothing was built there. I am about ready to go again,. Thank you, Travel 1!

If I could take this tour every day of my life, then my life would be perfect. Everything about it was really sweet. The ride through the Sacred Valley was like a dream. Then the train trip to Machu Picchu was more beautiful still. When we actually arrived at Machu Picchu, I had no more words left to describe it. Travel1 and Machu Picchu—- a winner of a combination.

Wow! This was certainly a fabulous experience. I loved the train ride along the Sacred River of the Incas. The tour was very well organized. So there was really nothing for us to do except marvel at the splendor of the site where the Incas built Machu Picchu, and at their amazing engineering feats.

Smooth as silk is how I would describe this tour. Everything was well planned out and well coordinated. Of course, when the final destination is a spot as wondrous as Machu Picchu, it is hard to go wrong. Besides Machu Picchu, I really enjoyed the train ride along the Urubamba River. And I thought the guide was wonderful too.

I would have to say that this was one of the most awesome experiences in my life. From start to finish this tour was mindblowing. The journey was real smooth and the sights were almost other-worldly. I will never forget that day. I felt like I was in a movie.
