Machu Picchu: Guided tour of Machu Picchu

Visit Us

Guided tour of Machu Picchu

This is the moment almost all visitors to Peru have come for: the chance to finally see the legendary Lost City of the Incas for yourself.

Perched on a remote mountain pedestal and shrouded by neighbouring Andean peaks, the secluded citadel of Machu Picchu was never found by the Spanish invaders and escaped plundering, making it the most complete and intact Inca site in existence.

To do Machu Picchu justice we think it is well worth exploring with a guide who can put the ruins into their historical context and explain the many different theories which surround them. This is a sprawling ancient site with much to see and discover, from rock-hewn temples and the famous sun dial to distinctive Inca terraces and dwellings. Wandering through well-preserved streets, it's easy to imagine the ancient day-to-day life your guide will vividly describe.
