An alternative way to get to Macchu Picchu that I particularly liked! However, consider that there are 7 hours by bus on the first day and another 7 on the second day for the Cusco-Hydroelectric transfer and vice versa, which are heavy motorbikes and on a road that in the first half is full of hairpin bends and in the second it becomes a steep dirt road. The walk from hydroelectric to aguas calientes is particular and characteristic, within everyone's reach as it is all flat and lasts 3 hours. The accommodation is a functional and basic hostel. The boys called us by name in the town square to find us. Macchu Picchu, on the other hand, does not need a description: it is simply pure spectacle and the guide made everything even more special with her genuine attachment and interest for the place, she was able to send us all the necessary information in 3 hours even if I would have stayed to listen to it all the day. The return, also uncomplicated, takes about 3.30-4 hours

Excelente experiencia, machu picchu es un espectáculo de maravilla que ver y una visita que toda persona debería realizar. El tour con Elvis fue fantástico, es un guia magnífico y muy extrovertido e interesante, se nota que conoce el contenido e historia y que le importa que sus grupos de tour aprendan. El hostal en aguas calientes y las comidas incluidas son justo lo que necesitas luego de las excursiones, de verdad que no hay quejas al respecto. Nuestra única critica viene a ser con respecto al transporte el dia de regreso, el conductor no dejaba de detener el vehículo al menos 1 vez por hora, convirtiendo el viaje de max 7 horas en uno de 10 y ocasionandonos problemas de retraso con nuestras reservas de estadia al regreso. Conduciendo como un tosco e incomodando a todos los pasajeros al punto que cada vez que habia algun indicio de que se detendria el bus entero se quejaria. Mas alla de eso no hay queja alguna de la experiencia
