Machu Picchu is so amazing, the feeling you get when you visit in unlike any place on earth. There are no words to describe its beauty and its surroundings. We took our young daughter with us, she loved the llamas who are so people friendly.

Last year entrance was 60$. Can't say about guide, as it depends on the package you take. I have seen 2-3 days tours that start from 300$ but include transportation etc.
