Let’s go, lady
This was an amazing experience. Peru is a beautiful country and I wish I visited more places... but hiking Machu Picchu is definitely a highlight. I consider myself a hiker, but this was an ultimate test of endurance.
The entire staff, from the hard working porters (the unsung heroes of the Inca Trail) to the supportive guides and the ... Continue Reading
The Inca Trail hike was the best experience of my life. Gerson picked us up by bus and drove us to our starting point for an adventure of a lifetime. From day one Gerson explained to us in details of exactly what to expect from the trail itself, altitude, culture and anything else we needed to know. He was very ... Continue Reading
Physically, the hardest thing I’ve ever done
I don't camp and I definitely don't hike. I've never even slept outside before, in my life. I am so happy that the Inca Trail Reservations exists because it allowed me to challenge myself in ways I never thought I could or would. My body loves and hates me. The second day was the hardest thing I have ever put ... Continue Reading
Everything I read on the Internet was true. This trek was physically challenging of course, but what an adventure. I'm grateful that Inca Trail Reservations was so organized and helpful when I decided to book the trip. The correspondence via email was great from the beginning to the night before the trip.
During the trek, I was amazed at ... Continue Reading
Old lady does the Inca Trail
My daughter convinced me to do the 4 day 3 night trail. I didn't think I could do it at the age of 62. Inca Trail Reservations really looked after me . I didn't feel rushed even when it was really hard and the climb got really steep.
The chef and porters were amazing. My vegan needs were catered ... Continue Reading
Aqua por favor
An adventure of a life time, words can not express what an experience the trek was. I went into the trip with an open heart and mind without any expectations. The porters, chef and guides are so accommodating and caring. Waking up each morning with coca tea in my tent was the best way to start my day.
Day ... Continue Reading
Old lady and daughter go into the wilderness
We were very nervous about doing the Inca Trail. The first day was really easy with gentle inclines. The second day was the hardest. Getting past the Dead Woman's Peak was not easy ! It felt good to have done it.
Day 3 started uphill but once we'd reached our Peak for the day the rest was good. Our ... Continue Reading
Fill it up again !
What a great adventure ! From the start our guides, Jorge and Gerson, were friendly, knowledgeable, and fun. We were also blessed with a great group of fellow travelers. We were able to learn about the history of the various Inca ruins, enjoy beautiful hiking, laugh, and make new friends.
Inca Trail Reservations provided a great hiking experience, the ... Continue Reading
Our trek on the Salkantay trail was absolutely amazing ! This was my first hike of this kind and I found the experience to be very enlightening about my physical limits and far I was willing to go to experience the beauty of this part of Peru and the culture here.
Our guide took great care to explain about ... Continue Reading
My Salkantay trek
From what I read before the trek, I thought the trek would be super hard, but I actually didn't think it was too hard. I thought I would have more trouble getting through it. The food on the whole trek was really good, I am gluten intolerant and the staff were very cooperative with this, always able to offer me ... Continue Reading
This one time in band camp …
Get acclimatized for the hike. It is a much easier hike at the higher elevation and much more enjoyable doing the Salkantay tour. The food is spectacular , from the chef in the make shift kitchen by the tents. The scenery is a must to see. So many different changes in landscapes throughout the hikes.
Lots to see through ... Continue Reading
Our tour of Machu Pichu was an amazing experience. The first night was awe-inspiring. In a valley illuminated by the moon surrounded by touring peaks, we got an appreciation of what we could look forward to. Reaching the summit and then descending into the cloud forest gave spectacular vistas.
After so many days of losing and gaining elevation, spending ... Continue Reading
First of all I thought it would be much harder for me, it is a hard trek especially the second day but I think if you are regular fit it wouldn't be any problem. The food was better than I was expecting and you will not go hungry. My guide was very friendly and really wanted us to learn things ... Continue Reading
Salkantay was sweet
The trek was a lot of fun, interesting and very comfortable overall. Juan Carlos was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable and took care of everyone.
I would recommend this trek to anyone interested in seeing Machu Picchu as long as they are in good shape. I would also recommend Inca Trail Reservations - Salkantay.org as the best ... Continue Reading

We had booked our Inca Trail to Machu Picchu organized by Inca Trail Reservations. I didn't really know what to expect, I was just excited. We had got all important and necessary information from the ... Continue Reading
