No wonder it is one of the 7 wonders of the world - it is absolutely amazing place to visit. Train ride was smooth, bus as well and then a short walk and you enter Machu Picchu - enjoy.

One of the 7 wonders worth seeing. Build in the high mountains. Shuttle bus from local town to entrance or at end of Inca Trail. Amazing architecture and scenery. Huge site to get round.

It was very quick at the entrance. No more than 5 to 10 minutes including a toilet stop. We arrived at 0930 so there were not a lot of people at the entrance.
