Climbing adventure

This was one of the most challenging activities I've ever done. Day one and three were challenging but didn't come close to day 2. I experienced some altitude symptoms and had huge support from Manuel and the family I climbed with.
I got to know my group very well and can definitely say that I gained some new ... Continue Reading

One to remember!

This trek was definitely one to remember! Quite a tough adventure but once we hit the top of that mountain and the finish line at Machu Picchu it was well worth the climb.
Many thanks to Inca Trail Reservations and Manuel for coordinating the trek for us. They made it very easy to get up early each morning ... Continue Reading

A trail of two halves

I was worried when I first arrived for the Inca Trail as I was feeling unwell and had put far too much in my bag! But after struggling through the first day, barely lifting my eyes from the path in front of me, everything changed. The walk mirrored how I felt. Just as my health improved the walk changed from ...

An experience like none other

Most incredible experience of my life. Our guide, Manuel, was tremendously engaging, entertaining and helpful. He not only provided expert guidance but encouraged us throughout the whole trek.
The service the porters provided us was fantastic - they took all the hard work out of it (other than climbing of course). I will remember this trek for the ... Continue Reading

Amazing time on the Inca Trail!

We just completed the Inca Trail and had an absolutely amazing time. There were 10 of us in the group and the guides, Raul and Marco, did well to make sure that all different levels could complete the trail.
The vibe was always positive and supportive and the food was fantastic! Although the second day at Dead Woman's ... Continue Reading

Incredible experience

We have just returned from the four day Inca Trail trek and it was the experience of a lifetime. The trip organized by Inca Trail Reservations is brilliant and I would highly recommend it. The service we received all along the trail was second to none. Everyone from the guides to the cook to the porters did all that they ... Continue Reading

Beautiful trek

I just completed the 5 day Salkantay trek with Carlos and Marco, and it was wonderful. I have spent a few weeks in South America and it has been a highlight of my trip! The trek was absolutely beautiful and very rewarding.
Carlos was a passionate, motivating, and enthusiastic guide. I really enjoyed learning about the Inca culture ... Continue Reading

Machu Picchu mission

Oh my gosh this trek was one of the most amazing decisions I have made! The views are spectacular and make every uphill effort worth it. The food far surpassed all of my expectations. Personally, I don't eat dairy and every meal (and there were courses) had something scrumptious I could eat!
One of my favorite parts was ... Continue Reading

Awesome trip

What a trip! Once in a lifetime trek. These guys do it right. I expected so much less for the price. Awesome guides, great food, what a trip! My favorite was day 2, very hard but very worth the incline. Our guides, Los and Kos were great and kept us moving. We witnessed an avalanche. We saw sun, snow, mountains, ... Continue Reading

Salkantay

I went on the 5 days / 4 nights Salkantay trek with a group of 15 people. Although sometimes tough and tiring, it was an amazing experience that I didn't want to miss and that I would definitively recommend to friends who like outdoors vacations. The tour was well organized, the group and tour guides, friendly and the food, tasty. ... Continue Reading

Trip of a lifetime

First off, the guides ( Marco & Carlos ) were simply amazing ! From the pick up to the finish, they were very professional. I didn't expect most of what the trip involved. From the guides to the cooks to the horsemen, everything was superb and above expectations.
I will recommend this adventure with Salkantay.org with everyone I ... Continue Reading

Salkantay 5d4n

The Salkantay experience was a very positive one. The hiking was tough, walking almost 50 - 60 km over four days. But it would have been tougher if we had to carry our tents as well as cooking supplies. All these were carried by horses and all we had to carry were our personal items. The food was great! We ...

Salkantay

I've been to many mountains before so I knew I was a little weak when it comes to high altitudes. However, the guides were super helpful so it turned out that I didn't need to worry about lagging behind the group at all.
Every meal up in the mountains were simply amazing, came in three courses and different ... Continue Reading

Salkantay 4n5d

I joined the Salkantay trek with my sister and my mom, and it was such a nice bonding experience. The first day was a little tough on us because we didn't quite know how to pace ourselves in such a high altitude. My mom and my sister were fine, but I suffered a little altitude sickness because unlike my mother ... Continue Reading
