I especially enjoyed the second day from the top of the Salkantay ... Continue Reading

Getting high with Victor!

I absolutely loved the Salkanty Trek with Inca Trail Reservations. Our tour guide Victor was informative, prompt, helpful and hilarious. If I had to describe Inca Trail Reservation's service in a phrase it would be "under promise and over deliver".
After a long day of hiking it was nice to return to camp with a hot meal and ... Continue Reading
