The Salkantay trek is a great experience! Salkantay is a mountain which you see throughout the hike. The hike itself varied from day to day! We've seen mountains, jungle and of course Machu Picchu! That is still to come!
I'll recommend it to all my friends. Our group was a lot of fun. There was good chemistry. Great fun! ... Continue Reading

Beyond my expectations!

This was, by far, my best trek ever. Manuel Paco is an experienced and very professional guide who continued to help me face daunting physical challenges, hour after hour.
I would not recommend this trip for the faint of heart as it will push you harder than any personal trainer, but it is good for the mind and ... Continue Reading

Inca trail experience

This has been an incredible experience. Thanks to Manuel Paco I now have a better understanding of the Inca culture. The hike was difficult especially the second day mostly because I was sick but even so very enjoyable. My only complaint has to do with cleanliness. The toilets are filthy. There is no reason to subject tourists from all over ... Continue Reading

I learned so much about Peru and ... Continue Reading

A trip to remember

Here I am, sitting in Aguas Calientes after my 4 day, 3 night trek of the Inca Trail. The cold Pilsen beer is a great reward for a challenging but very rewarding trip through the mountains and valleys of Peru to reach the famed Inca city of Machu Picchu.

A historic adventure

The trek to Machu Picchu was an incredible adventure, my guide Manuel was extremely helpful the whole trip. Be aware that this trek is at very high elevation and you should have an idea about how well you deal with low oxygen levels. As a fit person I had altitude sickness and wasn't the only one in my small group. ... Continue Reading

Inca Trail

This was an absolutely amazing experience despite my being utterly unprepared.
The Inca Trail is breathtaking in a completely different way every day of the trek, and I don't mean because there is so little oxygen. I can't think of another trail which could combine such beautiful topography, diverse fauna, and so much of a culture's history at once. ... Continue Reading

Carlos: King of the mountain, contributed greatly to this experience. He ... Continue Reading
