Vc precisa de guia e agencia pra conhecer o Machu Picchu Não existe ir pro Machu Picchu sem um guia. Dificil até escrever sobre nossa experiência. Foi mágica a nossa visita ao Machu Picchu. O nosso guia, Will, era formidável, um homem extremamente inteligente, apaixonado pela sua cultura, falava tudo com brilho no olhar e muita sabedoria. Sabia do significado de cada detalhe. Ir ao Machu Picchu sem um guia, é apenas ver um amontoada de pedras e tirar uma foto em uma paisagem bonita, mas sem significado. Você precisa ir com um guia e uma agencia para que a visita valha a pena e realmente seja incrivel. Pudemos entender e sentir o q o Machu Picchu significa e a grandiosidade de toda aquela cidade Inka. Amamos cada segundo e saimos apaixonado desse lugar surreal, nao a toa é uma das 7 maravilhas do mundo

Laguna incrivel e passeio completo com tudo incluso A Laguna Humantay parece até de mentira de tão linda. A caminhada dura 1h30 a 1h40 e é cansativa ja que tem muita subida, mas o nosso guia, Jeff, era muito animado, atencioso e fazia varias pausas de descanso para nos recuperarmos. Fomos em grupo e deu tudo certo. Alem disso o Jeff tira fotos incriveis e nos fez nos sentir muito bem, explicou a historia da Laguna e fez a experiencia ser maravilhosa. O passeio tem cafe da manha e almoço inclusos. Eles nos pegam as 4:30 do hotel e voltamos por cerca das 17:30. Temos muitos trajetos com a van e tudo é extremamente organizado por isso é muito importante que vc vá com uma agencia, no caso, a Peru Grand Travel que recomendamos 1000%!

Passeio lindo com tudo incluso Montanha colorida é uma trilha dificil afinal estamos a 5000 metros de altitude, mas como tudo no Peru, sempre vale a pena e chegar ao topo é uma realização. Fomos em Fevereiro por isso ela não estava tão colorida, por ser epoca de chuva, mas mesmo assim foi lindo e um passeio que vale a pena fazer. Importante se for nessa epoca se agasalhar com gorro, luvas e um bom casaco porque faz muito frio. Nosso guia, Andre, foi muito responsável e atencioso em cada detalhe. Na minha opiniao esse passeio é inviavel sem uma agencia, vc precisa sair super cedo do seu hotel, sao horas na van, pausa pro cafe, mais horas ate a montanha, tem todo um preparo e organização com o tempo e mais todo o tempo de volta com almoço incluso ate chegar em Cuzco novamente. O passeio começa 4:20 da manha e termina 17:30! Valeu muito a pena e amamos essa experiência intensa e linda
