You will be walking and hiking extensively and this includes traveling up and down steps. Keep this in mind when you get ready in the morning.
The sun can be very strong when it comes out in the Machu Picchu region, due to the high altitude and closeness to the equator. Therefore, it is important to apply sunblock and reapply after several hours or if you have been sweating.
Pay Attention to Your Guide

Take Water and Snacks
It is important to have the appropriate fuel for the tour. Inside the citadel there are no vending machines, and at the Machu Picchu entrance there is only a small café and one luxury restaurant. Bring water and snacks with you which you can purchase in Aguas Calientes town in the morning or the day before you visit Machu Picchu.
