The famous Inca Trail organised through the Inca Trail Reservations company, no less. A well organised preparatory meeting with appropriate information set us up for an excited early start, a long bumpy ride, and two tired and hungry kids. Porters, eager vendors, green rolling hills backed with mountains and bustling organisation greeted us on arrival. After a quick passport check ... Continue Reading
The Machupicchu thing
Legs aching, stomach growling, head aches far from going away three things that are imminent when going on this four day journey. It is hard to forget this life changing experience and even harder to do it in four to five hours like the ancient Incas but it is no problem when your guide is Carlos (the king of the ...

The three brothers
My brothers and I had been planning this trip for 2 years and was perfect. We enjoyed the service, the amazing views and the guides. Highly recommend doing the hike to Machu Picchu !
The hike to the summit on the second day is pretty difficult because of the elevation, is over 15,000 feet, but we enjoyed every minute ... Continue Reading
Nature, hard work and great sights
This hike was not the easiest thing to do, but certainly worth it for the sights and the great company. We met a few people from our home country and abroad, and got to know them along the way.
This trek is less traveled than Inca Trail so you will feel a little more along in nature. I had ... Continue Reading
A great alternative to the Inca Trail
We missed the opening to book the Inca Trail tour and instead opted for this route. Based on the more difficult hiking and less traffic, it appealed to what we were looking for. I'm happy to say that we weren't disappointed and felt like it was a great experience overall.
The second day is definitely tiring, but very satisfying ... Continue Reading
Trekking over 70
My adventure was spectacular ! Our guide Johnathan was excellent. His English was perfect and his knowledge of everything Inca was substantial.
Johnathan was so good to my niece even bringing her lunch one day. He also assisted her in her journey by taking her backpack and carrying it himself. Then he grabbed her by the arm and escorted ... Continue Reading
The trek or old people
My whole experience with the Inca Trail Reservations was superior. I was amazed first of all with the administrative capability of Fanny my representative. Really a professional !
Johnathan our tour guide was exceptional! He really encouraged me when I didn't think I would make it through the second day. The food was so elaborate and unexpected. The porters ... Continue Reading
Inca Trail trek
My Inca Trail was a once in a lifetime experience, very hard work but worth it in the end. What a truly magical place Machu Pichu is. I met great people and heard lots of stories. We climbed and climbed thousands of steps, up and down. Saw Inca dwellings, and towns.
Heard so much about them and their rich ... Continue Reading
Best experience ever !
Hiking to Machu Picchu was definitely the highlight of our 6 month backpacking trip. It was definitely a challenge, especially the second day of hiking, but the challenge is what made the hike even better.
Our guide and all the porters were amazing, it would not have been the same without them with us. The food that was cooked ... Continue Reading
I accomplished the goal
A great adventure and a thoroughly memorable experience. Great tour guide and surprisingly good food throughout. The trek itself was harder than expected, leave a couple days to acclimatize in Cusco.
In wet season hiking boots preferable to trainers, bring a head torch as it will likely be dark at some points while walking. Make sure and get a ... Continue Reading

Fabian was the chef and the food he cooked was ... Continue Reading

The porters looked after us while at our campsite, it was great ... Continue Reading
The 4 day trek was very exhilarating ! Tons of gorgeous terrain leading up to Machu Picchu especially the third day, had a great trekking team ranging from 23 years old to 72 ! 2nd day was hard but worth it in the end.
Future hikers my advice: No need for an extra pair of shoes at night, would ... Continue Reading
I would thoroughly recommend this trip - I had such a great time ! From the briefing session I was filled with confidence and well informed.
On day one of the trek I knew I had chosen the right company, our tour guide Jonathan was excellent: informative, supportive, encouraging & fun. We were the Puma family ! The food ... Continue Reading

Most amazing and surreal moment of my life. Words can't describe the type of experience it was. The difficult trek is worth every step. You get a full experience of the history and the trek that was used.
Highly recommend to others. It would be a trip of a lifetime, best trip ever ! You got a chance to ... Continue Reading
