    Machu Picchu is certainly doable for kids. You would fly to Cuzco. Take the train from Cusco to the base. Then take a bus that drives you up the side of the mountain to Machu Picchu . However!! The altitude at Cusco can be quite challenging for some, so not sure how the kids will handle that. Machu Picchu is actually lower than Cusco, but there is no avoiding Cusco to go to Pachu Picchu.

    The first time I visited Machu Picchu was when I was 12, so it could be alright. I would talk to the doctor to see what he or she says because there is the issue of high altitude sickness. If the doctor says it is alright then I think you should go for it, it is an awesome experience.

    Yes, absolutely!! the train travel is awesome, and the "Ciudadela of Machu Picchu" is a safe place to take the children. I went few month ago with my husband and we regret that we didnt take the children with us!
