Amazing adventure

I went with the 4 day 3 night Inca Trail tour. The view on the road was absolutely amazing. This trail may be the most beautiful place I've ever been to. Our tour guide Marco was very funny and prepared thoroughly for presentation. The cook prepared us delicious food and the porters carried our equipment all the way.

Experiencia fabulosa

Una experiencia única, fabulosa, difícil pero vale la pena. La vista todos los días nos despierta con un desafió distinto y fue mi deber levantarme y enfrentarlo. Que gratificante. Dichosa de poder vivirla. 4 días de pura vida natural. La comida, la gente. Momentos de esos que no sabes si puedes repetir y que jamas olvidare.
Gracias a todos. ... Continue Reading

The trail was ‘Peruvian flat’

I did the four day, three night Inca Trail trek and I loved it ! This was my first time in the Andes and it was absolutely incredible. The vistas were breathtaking -- steep mountains that pierced the clouds, lush greenery, and historic ruins.
The trail itself was challenging, with long, steep climbs and descents. There were lots and ... Continue Reading

The terrific trek

When we came to Peru I expected to reconnect with old friends, but didn't know I'd make so many new ones ! Our guides Edwin and Jimmy were extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and they managed a scattered group excellently. We got very lucky with gorgeous weather so we got to experience majestic views almost non stop !
The hike ... Continue Reading

Never knew how much I hated going downhill

Actually, I always knew, but I never hated it more than on this trip (pro tip: train for stairs, especially steep ones). Although it was one of the hardest and longest treks I've ever done, it was so worth it in the end, especially with the help of our amazing guides Edwin and Jimmy and all the porters and cook. ...

Blood, sweat, and tears… of happiness

The hike was the most physically strenuous thing I have ever done in my life but also the most rewarding experience of my life.
The hike itself is very challenging at times but the views at the end of each day are unparalleled. For anyone afraid it will be too physically strenuous, breaks and checkpoints are frequent and you ... Continue Reading

Inca Trail > bus

We came into Peru only seeing pictures of Machu Picchu. We also had no idea what we would see at the Inca Trail. We were absolutely blown away.
The sights were beyond anything I have seen and the services provided by our guides and porters were top notch. Not to mention the food that was made blew our minds ... Continue Reading

My first world wonder did not come easy

10 of us just finished an epic trip on the Inca Trail - it would have been infinitely harder if it weren't for the guides, staff and porters having our back along the way. Our group was a good mix of beginners and advanced and our group catered to everyone.
The food was also amazing, among the best I've ... Continue Reading

Inca gill :-)

When I booked onto the Inca Trail I was unsure what to expect... Would I make it to the top? Would altitude sickness get me? Would I like the group? And would I cope with roughing it? Well I did make it to Machu Picchu and it was amazing as was the journey (despite the ten zillion steps up and ... Continue Reading

Mr. Michael

The start of this adventure was filled with wonder and anticipation. We met with our fellow adventurers in our trek meeting at the Inca Trail Reservations office in Cusco. The explanation of what we could expect was explained. We started off at 5:30 am carrying our bags to the coach where we eventually picked up all the trekkers and porters. ... Continue Reading

Amy the adventurer

This has been the most rewarding experience. The trail was hard but the moral from the guides Edwin and Jim helped all of our group persevere when the trail was tough. Edwin was very informative with his explanations, his depth of knowledge about the trial made it interesting.
The trail was challenging. Going up was hard work but ... Continue Reading

Jacque ‘the tank’

Wow what an adventure, met some amazing people, our group became such a team, helping each other out. The walk was tough but manageable, not sure if I'd have managed it without a porter though as day 2 was a climb. Woken up with a cocaine tea lol, the food was amazing better than a restaurant at home. Amazing views ... Continue Reading

Fascinating trip

Great trip in general. The Inca Trail is very beautiful, although we went in the rainy season. Great hikes and nice mountains. Had a super group with a lot nice people, with whom we had lot of fun. The food was nice as well, which was Peruvian with variety. I especially liked the popcorn (which isn't very Peruvian). And also ... Continue Reading
