  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I can’t even put into the perfect words to describe this amazing tour and experience! I was so nervous doing this on my own, but once it got going and I was joined by another great couple and helpful guide Jose, I knew I would be okay! The journey was so long I will be honest. But once you get to Machu Picchu and you see the views and hear the history, you will know that it was worth it! I highly recommend this beautiful day trip as it will be one that you’ll never forget!

    Our family day excursion to Machu Picchu made the trip to Peru worth it alone. Our connections, from hotel pick up, to bus, to train, then bus and back again all went smoothly, with excellent tour operator assistance along the way. The scenic journey was interesting and entertaining (thanks to Peru Rail, Vistadome) throughout and Machu Picchu itself was breathtaking. We got lucky with good weather and relatively small number of people at the site, mid February.

    Roy was awesome! He gave us so much information, made sure we had time to take pictures and look at the view and definitely made the whole thing worth it. It’s definitely a very long day of travel with about 4 total hours on a bus and 4 total hours on a train if your coming from and going back to Cusco, so just be prepared, bring a lot of water, snacks and things to do on the ride!

    This is an amazing tour! Vidal was our tour guide, and he was the best tour guide we could’ve had. He was very knowledgeable. He accommodated the tour to our schedule and even dropped us off at the train station so we could make our reservation. He let us sleep when we moved around and made sure not to disturb us! The sites itself were amazing to see, and he told us so much about each spot! Highly recommend!!

    Absoutely wonderful tour from start to the end. Communications prior to tour commencement was very clear. Hotel pickup was punctual. Itinerary was great. Oscar had great in-depth knowlege of the history, geography and people of the Sacred Valley region. His narrative made the tour most interesting and enjoyable. He was very attentive to our needs and knew what we were most interested in. My wife and I had a wonderful time. We highly recommend this tour to anyone.

    Eduardo was great as our guide. He taught us the history of the salt mines and Moray. The ATV experience was exceptional, and he is a master at taking photos of you. Highly recommended. We also got a bonus trip to the textile workshop where they make incredible items out of alpaca wool.

    This activity was part of my birthday trip, and I must say this was a great choice. My tour guides were very professional, welcoming and they made this adventure so much more fun than expected. I had the greatest time of my life.

    Our guide for the trip was very knowledgeable on the history of Machu Picchu and went above and beyond to get great pictures for all of us and took us to a very good restaurant after. Would recommend to anyone.

    This is an amazing tour, but our guide made a huge difference . Efrain F. is so knowledgeable about the history of Peru! He gave us so much insight about not only the history but the myths and legends of the locals. He made our experience superb and also gave us so many tips about where to eat, how to take care of ourselves, and where to buy stuff. He is so friendly, polite patient, kind and made time to accommodate our needs and preferences. There was no question he did not have an answer for! I absolutely recommend taking this tour and make sure to request Efrain F. As your guide!! It’ll make the whole difference!

    I picked Minka's travel for my tour to Machu Picchu because they were the highest rated company that would let me book online for just one person on the date I wanted to go. It turned out to be a great choice. Pretty much everyone goes by the same bus, train, then bus combination (all spectacular, by the way) to get there, so which company you choose should depend on the price and the guide. I think prices vary (shop around) but my guide, Julio, was excellent. The location is amazing, but the place itself and its continuing role in the spiritual lives of the local people are fascinating.
