"There are 2 ways to get to Machu Picchu, you can take the bus, that is US$32 per via, it takes around 25 minutes to get to the top of the mountain, and it will drop you off at the entrance of the city."  See More

"First travel from lima to Arequipa, and do the colca canion trail!"  See More

"The trekking tour ends in Aguas Calientes (gateway to Machu Picchu)."  See More

"Glad you're adding Machu Picchu but hike through Colca Canyon and explore Lake Titicaca"  See More

"picarones (sweet potato doughnuts), papas a la huancaina, plantain and sweet potato crisps, Inca Kola, limonada,must try a pisco sour,anticuchos (beef heart spiced and grilled),try Papachos in Miraflores who serve great Peruvian styled hamburgers, go to El Salto de Fraile Restaurant in Chorrillos- enacting a local legend, a monk dives off the cliff near the restaurant (give them a great tip when they drip into the restaurant for donations), the restaurant in Huaca Pucllana is great to go for a good night out-food is good and the pre-Incan ruins are lit up for you to view as you eat."  See More

"Is this what you mean or are you exclusively looking for a tour to Machu Picchu from Cusco/Valle Sagrado?"  See More

"Dont skip the Sacred Valley of the Incas in Peru."  See More

"Dont miss Lake Titicaca and the day trip put to Sacsayhuaman"  See More

"Can use buses to explore the Sacred Valley or taxi drivers are often happy to be hired for the day at reasonable cost."  See More

"Another places is Moray, Urubamba, Ollantaytambo fortress; Machu Picchu Citadel, the universal emblematic sign of Perú."  See More

"The best areas for hotels are Miraflores and Barranco."  See More

"Huayna Picchu it was scary but so exciting!"  See More

"After you are going to feel acclamatized and ready for next regions as Cuzco (3600m) Sacred Valley 2500 m, Puno (3800m) Titicaca Lake."  See More

"In addition to going higher than the Inca Trail (we went to 15,300 feet), I think other differences are that the Salkantay trek has fewer ruins (only Llactapata the final day, from where we could see Machu Picchu across the valley), but more habitat variety."  See More

"Lake Titicaca is amazing-try to do a homestay on Amantaní-stay with locals-primitive but different and interesting."  See More
