The train was not “executive class”. We were placed on the “expedition train”. All other aspects of the tour were good and our guide did an excellent job. We never received water that was supposed to be included.

Amazing trip to machu picchu my husband and i are extremely happy with GO TO PERU they dropped off our train, bus and machu picchu tickets the day prior at our hotel. They called and made us aware what time theyd be picking us up. They were right on time ext emely friendly, it was just us two the taxi driver and a guide that was only there to verify we had all of our documents to avoid any delays. Once we arrived at the train the taxi driver took us to the main entrance and told us where to check in and what to do. Train we got was exceptional , little snack for the long ride but the scenery was magnificent. Valeria a really nice girl met us in aguascalientes and literally walked us to the bus, checked our documents to make sure they were in order realized we had very little time so ahe told our guide to make sure we saw the main palces up there. Once we arrived to machu picchu we met with JIMMY amazin tour guide! Cant emphasize this enough. Amazing team would definitely recomend.

Our tour guide Henri was outstanding not only did he make our day an unforgettable experience but he was also excellent at taking great photos. He has a great deal of knowledge about the Inca history and shared this with us in a relevant manner. He answered all our questions and it was a fulfilling experience!
