I did a day trip with Inka Time to Machu Picchu! It was such a wonderful experience! They made it very easy for us at every stop, picking us up... read more or having someone wait for us. The best part of the experience was Jesus our tour guide!!! He was so knowledgeable and very fun and easy to be around. I loved learning from him and also spending the day at Machu Picchu with him! Overall great time! Thank you Inka Time!
Great Experience! We did a 3-day tour with them (Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Lake Humantay). Our point of contact, Veronica, was excellent and answered all our questions. Our guides... read more for all 3 days provided great insights to the history and culture of the landscape and temples, and were very nice! We booked a private tour with Elvis for Machu Picchu and it was worth the extra money.
We took the 3 days tour with all tickets and transporte included. Our tour coordinator, Elisabeth, was super good! Always taking care of us all the days of our trip.... read more This was definetely a plus! We loved the tour to the Sacred Valley and the day in Machu Picchu. The tours were given also in english which was good for my belgian boyfriend. All touristic guides very well prepared and enthousiastic for giving us the best experience. Definetely recommendable!!!
From the start, Beto was fast and great at communicating with us while my friends and I were planning our trip. He answered our many questions about the different tours... read more and even remembered details about our trip since one of my friends took on the communicator role with him after I initially reached out. Beto and Inkatime customized our tour so that we saw the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, and Rainbow Mountain in 3 days. Our whole time in Cusco we were taken care of with organized taxi rides from our drop off points to our accommodations. Elizabeth was great at organizing these details and communicating with us the details of our tour a day in advance. She even rode in the taxi with us to one our accommodations in Cusco when we were concerned about its location. Inkatime, Beto, and Elizabeth really took care of my friends and I during our trip to Peru. 🇵🇪 We would highly recommend booking your tours with them and have already recommended them to our friends. When we go back to Peru, we’ll definitely be using this tour agency again.

Inka Time was so organized & helpful from the minute we booked the day tour to Machu Picchu. We received a precise agenda of how the day would go.... read more We also received very helpful advice on what to expect when we traveled to Cusco since we were coming from a much lower altitude and unfamiliar with the country. The day before our tour, a representative visited with us to ensure we understood how to travel and when to get to Machu Picchu. They had a transfer associate meet us at one point, again to make sure we did not get lost & stayed on schedule. At Machu Picchu, Elvis was an amazing guide! He allowed us to take all the time we wanted to view each area & take as many pictures as we wanted. He had a great sense of humor & kept the tour incredibly interesting with his knowledge of Inca history and of Machu Picchu. We couldn't have asked for more from this tour. I picked Inca Time because their prices were so reasonable compared to other companies. I was worried we wouldn't get the best experience since we were paying less, but this is one of the best experiences of all our travels! We HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone visiting Peru!
Rainbow Mountain tour was well organized, pick-up was smooth, guides and the actual tour were amazing! Both breakfast and lunch we

1.- El tour me parece perfecto, se que no tengo tiempo pero, ¿es suficiente para visitar Machu Picchu?
Claro que sí, eligiendo cualquier itinerario usted tendrá entre 3 a 4 horas en la ciudadela, dos horas para tener un tour guiado de información y luego tiempo libre.
2.- Yo quiero el tour pero incluido el ascenso a la Montaña de Wayna Picchu o Machu picchu, se puede?
Si se puede, Eligiendo un horario temprano y retornando tarde usted puede hacer la visita de Machu Picchu además del ascenso a una de las montañas, solo nos tiene que especificar la fecha para ver la disponibilidad, esto tiene un costo extra de US$ 25.00 por persona.
3.- Yo llego un día a Cusco un día antes, ¿Cree usted que tenga problemas con la altura en Machu Picchu?
Hay muchas personas que llegan de la misma manera que usted; Machu Picchu es mucho más bajo de altura que Cusco, entonces si usted tiene algún problema en Cusco de Seguro que en Machu picchu se sentirá mejor porque la única forma de no tener problemas o complicaciones con la altura es descender. Cusco (3350 mts.) Machu picchu (2450 mts), Aguas Calientes – Pueblo de Machu Picchu (2050 mts).
4.- Viajo con mi familia, tenemos un niño de 8 años y un mayor de 65 años, ¿habrá mucha dificultad para ellos?
Este tour es uno de los más cómodos, eso sí, en Machu Picchu se camina, es la única forma de visitar el parque, si alguien tiene mucha dificultad de caminar le recomiendo tomar un tour en servicio privado, así puede hacer el recorrido a su ritmo sin seguir a un grupo.
