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

calves on fire

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

Stairs, stairs and more stairs

I really enjoyed my Machu Picchu adventure. It was both physically and mentally challenging.
Our guide was really good and able to transfer the right "inca spirit" as well as a lot of interesting information about the inca. The trail offered lots of different landscapes and highlights, even though I couldn't always appreciate the beauty of the ancient inca ... Continue Reading
