See Machu Picchu in all its splendor from the highest viewpoint, a typical postcard image. Mike will explain to you all about its history: why the Incas chose this site, what its purpose was, and how it was re-discovered in recent years. Spot native fauna and flora in the lush landscape of the cloud forest, from orchids to llamas.
Visit the citadel up close and personal including Temple of the Three Windows and Temple of the Sun as your guide explains to you how the Incas made such ingenious constructions and used them for ceremonies and astronomic observation.

technology set up including use of stabilizer and zoom meeting
During weekends I’m usually at Machu Picchu now so we can discuss that too. Middle of the week I am in Cusco.
Please schedule at least 1 week in advance
It takes about 5 hours to get to Machu Picchu for the guide and because of strict regulations at Machu Picchu must be scheduled in advance. So please book at least 1 week in advance to be able to secure the virtual tour. We will then confirm and send the link to the zoom meeting. We can be flexible on time but this is also dependent on the timeslot secured at Machu Picchu so please do get in touch to discuss. We can also provide this tour in person at Machu Picchu.
Wow! What an amazing experience! I booked this as an opportunity for our students to "travel" and learn about a place we are unable to visit in person. Michael did an excellent job on this tour. He created a truly unique educational experience for our students and families. I have received many notes of positive feedback stating how much they enjoyed this experience. Michael was communicative through the whole process ensuring that the tour would meet the needs of our group. He was patient as we worked through some technical difficulties on our end. I would 100% recommend this tour. Thank you Michael for bringing the beauty of Peru and Machu Picchu to our homes.
Thank you so much Rachel for your review, I'm really happy to hear everyone enjoyed it. It was an absolute pleasure hosting you and your students virtually at Machu Picchu!
