What people are saying about Montaña Machu Picchu, Peru

Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 120 reviews

The climb up the mountain was very tiring, but more than worth it. There were only 15 people up there that day, and although we had poor visibility at the beginning (between 8-9 a.m.) because it was very cloudy, it was all the nicer afterwards. You had a great view of the ruins and could take nice pictures. And even when we were down the mountain, the special ticket gave us access to very specific areas that only the few people on the mountain had access to. So we would recommend this Machu Picchu + Machu Picchu Mountain Ticket to everyone.

The trip was very exhausting, but definitely worth it. The view from the mountain was stunning and worth all the stairs. BUT We would recommend taking the bus up to MuchuPicchu, since the hike following is pretty challenging.

The mountain hike was amazing. It was NOT easy, and took a couple of hours round trip, but it was special. Highly recommend this hike if you are in decent shape to get some incredible views.

This only for the entry ticket this is not including bus/train tickets to get there. Other than that this is a perfect way to buy tickets without any hassle!

Everything was well organized, Jimmy the guide was awesome. The service provider is very responsive by message in case of questions etc.
