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. Travel 1 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.

Going to see Machu Picchu was a very wonderful experience for me. As I do not speak Spanish I was kind of worried. but everything was sweet. Travel 1 took all the hassles out of the trip. All I had to do was to relax and enjoy the amazing scenery and people and the mystery and splendor of Machu Picchu. It was one of the best days of my life.
