Great experience overall! Well organized, well paced and plenty of time to spend in Machu Picchu. Knowledgable guide as well! Also like the fact that they pick you up at 5:30am, as oppose to 3-4am like some of the other tours do...good for sleeping in a little and being able to enjoy the day feeling more well-rested!!
