An experience of a lifetime!

I have always wanted to visit Machu Pichu and this year I finally had the opportunity to fulfill my dream and conquer the Inca Trail carrying my own backpack.
The three guides made this happen: Jimmy, Marko and Paul assisted where the trail was too difficult or I was too tired to carry my backpack. The food was amazing ... Continue Reading

Machu Picchu or Bust!!!

I cannot find enough words of praise to describe our guide Carlos. He was hands down the best guide to have.
His English was great, as my Spanish is very poor. He keeps you motivated every step of the way. Even when they become excruciating and you think you can't go on. He explains each day what to expect ... Continue Reading
