Thanks for organizing that trip for me, it was a long day 15.25hrs but worth the effort. Ciprian Conza, my chauffeur was punctual, reliable and capable and even stopped twice on the way to Ollantaytambo station for me to take picture of a “hotel” made of tubular pods attached to the mountainside 500m high with a cable car for access. And when we arrived back on the bus to Cusco at 8pm there was his smiling face to greet me and take me back to the hotel. I managed to get lucky and score Seat No.1 which was right up the front of the train beside the driver’s cab so had fantastic views of the locals going about they daily activities, the towering mountains, the boiling and pounding river racing along beside us and Inka terraces. Nola was my guide at the Inka ruins and I had him all to myself. He is a walking encyclopedia of knowledge on everything Inka. He gave me a 2.5 hour guided tour by which time my brain could absorb no more. He is so passionate about Inka history and their relationship to nature and their gods and their ingenuity. It was a memorable visit. Regards Greg Welsby Brisbane Australia
Found Karikuy tours through a Google search. Wanted to do a 2 day/1-night tour to Machu Picchu including some of the Inca trail up to Machu Picchu. Nice tour. Met Oscar in Cusco. Had a misunderstanding of PeruHop bus drop-off time and when Oscar would pick us up and where we were to go. The problem was that if we were going to have to pay an extra $15 per person to have a hostel hold our stuff, breakfast and shower, we should have been told this in advance. Booo. But we ended up meeting Oscar in the Plaza des Arms at 8:45am to start our tour. That was very nice. Plaza des Arms is really chill and nice. There is even a starbucks and KFC in the plaza. Our initial tour guide for the bus/mini-van was really nice. He explained a lot about the Sacred Valley and dropped us off in Ollanyatambo to catch the Peru Rail train to Machu Picchu city. He said someone would be waiting for us at the train station. Great tour guide in Machu Picchu named Piercy. The guy who ran the hotel front desk was waiting for us when we got off of the train from Ollyantambo to Machu Picchu. And he took us to the hotel. The Hotel Humantay was just enough. They watched the bags for free and had free breakfast. Hot water was spotty to non-existent. But walking down the Inca Trail from Machu Picchu was spectacular. I recommend taking the bus up to Machu Picchu and then walking down the trail. Unless you want to take the 2 hour walk up. Best to start at 4 am. So you don’t melt from the sun.
There were awkward moments (touring Ollantaytambo ruins with luggage in tow and waiting hours for the train) but the accommodations in Machu Picchu and the private guide in the ruins more than made up for it. Don’t bother with the VisaDome option, unless you would like food and entertainment on the train, as the ride is mostly in dark.
The two days tours Sacred Valley/Machu Picchu was great. Everything was organized for us and well explained. Furthermore it is all included (Bus to Sacred Valley/ bus Aguas Calientes-Machu Picchu/train/entrance). All of our guides were great and speak a good english. It was really easy and quick to contact Karikuy for any questions we had. Overall we had a great time visiting the Sacred Valley and the Machu Picchu organized by Karikuy Tours
