Highly recommend a sing-a-long while trekking. You may be completely out of breath, but it is worth it.
The food was excellent and plentiful, snacks were only needed when meal times had extended times between them. The trail is beautiful, and the views from the passes can't be duplicated.
If you change your passport number, be sure to ... Continue Reading

Rain and Ruins

Our Machu Picchu adventure was a great experience. We all enjoyed the explanations and stories told by our guide. Literally the only downside with our trek was the intermittent rain on days 2 and 3, and the very rainy day when we got into Machu Picchu. In spite of this we still had an incredible adventure, visiting numerous archaeological sites, ... Continue Reading

The trek in all was unforgetable. I had a very fun time seeing the ruins, although the physical level of fitness needed for this trek is quite high.
I ended up getting very bad altitude sickness on the second day up the large 2 hour mountain. Maybe suggesting to travelers some altitude tablets they may want to take with ... Continue Reading

Already missing this Trail!

Everything was fantastic. The guide, Americo, was impeccable with his job. We were very well informed of all the Inca sites we passed as well as nature and Quechua culture. And he never let us walk in the rain with a grumpy face, making jokes to light it up. The whole team, the porters and the chef was great too. ... Continue Reading
