Visited Machu Picchu in May and loved every minute there! We went on a tour with Globus and so happy with everything! We were able to hike to the Sun Gate which was the highlight of my trip! What an awesome experience!

We went with a guide and small group. The craziest thing is the bus ride up and down the mountain. The historical significance of this site is impressive. The beauty of the area is amazing. Glad I went but walking all those steps was difficult.

Machu Picchu is amazing because it is so old and well preserved. The mountains surrounding it are spectacular. However, it is very over crowded with only one bathroom per sex. The men's line was manageable but the women's line had about 50 women waiting to...More

First off, it's well worth the time, hassle, and expense to experience this. And there is plenty of hassle and expense involved, so start early and PLAN! Second, the site is quite accessible for people who aren't mountain climbers, which is nice. I would arrive...More

There were double rainbows on the day I went and even the staff was taking photos like tourists. It lightly rained briefly at the end of the day. The clouds passing through add to the beauty of this magical place. Plan your trip now and...More

I visited last month and our G Adventures guide told us that the worst time to visit Machu Picchu is February because it is the rainiest month and the roads become very dangerous. Not only that but a rained out trip can... More

How "in shape" do you have to be? I can walk with no problem. Climbing might be a little harder but am looking at the altitude also. Does this play a big role in breathing and difficulty with exertion. My husband and I are in our mid 50s and not big exercise buffs!

Even the ruins have quite a bit of climbing, actually more like lots of steps, but if you take your time, you should be able to see everything comfortably. I wouldn't advise attempting any "real" climbing including the... More
