One foot in front of the other

When my boyfriend and I first booked our trip to Peru we knew we wanted to do the 4 day Inca Trail trek... what we didn't know is that you need to book 2-4 months in advance. When I found out I called my boyfriend and he booked us a trek within the hour. Although I was skeptical, I can ... Continue Reading

The best memories are something that you can proudly wear

Even saying good stuff about a 4 day tour in the middle of the jungle, walking 6 to 8 hours a day in a typical Inca's path, drinking the same hot water with tea, powder chocolate or milk, using toilets that doesn't deserve this appellation, and sleeping in a cold tent. Anyway, this is more than that ! It will ... Continue Reading

A walk to remember

My girlfriend and I were a little skeptical about having booked the Inca Trail trek during rainy season. We were a little nervous about what was in store for us but the trek was everything anyone could ever ask for and then some.
The guides were excellent and brought smiles to our faces despite tough times through out the ... Continue Reading

If I can do it, you can do it

I have always wanted to go to Machu Picchu. Ever since I had my first lesson on Spanish.
When we heard about the trip we thought it only was on 4200m. We were on 4500m but it was only one day, and this was on the 4th. It was hard especially the second day ! I was so proud ... Continue Reading

Easy day

I didn't know what to expect. I never hiked before so it would be all new for me, and I can say.... it was amazing. The hikes, the guides, the food and the tents for sleeping. We had a great group and with the guides helping us with everything, this is going to be a trip that I would never ... Continue Reading

What is Inca flat ?

Do not trust Paul ! Inca flat is not flat at all... this trek is very physically and will push you to exhaustion. However, no matter how exhausted you are, you are guaranteed to have fun on this trek ! The food is amazing. The people are amazing. The porters and guides are unbelievable.
Seeing the Inca's history unwrap ... Continue Reading

First time camping

Having never been hiking or camping before, I thought I'd do it tough for the first time. And I had the most amazing time on this trek ! From the tour guides, to the porters, cooks and the rest of the group, everyone was fantastic and made this such an enjoyable experience.
There is no way I would have ... Continue Reading

I survived

I was a bit nervous before the adventure, think it was because of my new trekking shoes and too much partying in Cusco... But when the day arrived I was so excited ! We started with the "lazy day", then the second day was coming up, the hardest one. Uphill almost all the way and probably I lost breath for ... Continue Reading

Da hike !

I was impressed from start to finish ! The organization from the first briefing was extraordinary and informative. From there the food proved to be surprisingly excellent (given the conditions). Going forward all the information provided at each archaeological site was in depth and all questions were answered with amazing detail !
Overall from start to finish I was ... Continue Reading

Incredible from start to finish

5 am wake up calls (?!). Dirt under your nails for days. Hours of hiking on sore ankles (cankles?). Wouldn't change a single thing - the entire experience from start to finish was incredible, and the company did an amazing job taking care of the group and making it a memorable journey. I highly recommend this company for your trek ... Continue Reading

What a wonderful experience !

I can't say enough good things about my trip with Inca Trail Reservations. First, the guides and porters were fantastic. The guides were always patient with us - hiking , explaining the history, practicing Spanish, etc. Gerson, Marco and Pepe were hilarious.
The porters are so hard working and the food was wonderful. We woke up each morning to ... Continue Reading

Amazing journey

Machu Picchu is breath taking for sure, but the journey there is even more amazing. Inca Trail Reservations does a great job making this trek fun and memorable. The guides exceed every expectation. The food is delicious, but I do wish there was more protein for muscle recovery.
The camps they chose are ideal. Be prepared to be challenged ... Continue Reading

Trek or treat

What a fantastic time. Gerson, Marco and Pepe were great - really knowledgeable, chill and thorough. We never felt rushed and it was super fun. The chef and food were amazing - definitely overate more than once. Maybe too much tea before bed time (night camping pees are the worst), but that was my own fault.
The trail itself ... Continue Reading

Great time

I thought everything was great. The guides and porters were hard working and personable. I think they all did a great job and it was a great experience. The cooks did a great job under the circumstances they were under, and they made the experience.
I thought the guides were very thorough in explaining the sites, as well as ... Continue Reading
