My trip to Machu Picchu with Tayra Tours turned remarkable despite an initial hiccup. I missed my train to Aguas Calientes due to a confusion with the timings. However, Tayra Tours swiftly arranged for the next available train and ensured I didn’t miss the tour. Their responsiveness and assistance were exceptional and made my experience even more memorable.

The Day Trip to Machu Picchu with Tayra Tours was a dream come true. The early pickup was well worth it for the incredible experience. The train ride to Aguas Calientes was picturesque and comfortable. Our guide was exceptional, providing detailed insights at each site in Machu Picchu. The freedom to explore the citadel on my own after the guided tour was a fantastic bonus. Everything was impeccably organized, making the day both exhilarating and stress-free.

The guided tour to MachuPicchu was a highlight of my visit to Peru. Tayra Tours’ organization was flawless, making the early morning start smooth and easy. The additional time to wander through the citadel post-tour was much appreciated. The return journey was as well-coordinated as the rest of the trip.
