Speedy sexy llamas take on Salkantay

We did the Salkantay trek (4 days) and really enjoyed it. The guide, food and landscapes were all wonderful. We were served coca tea in our tents every morning as our wake up call which was a nice touch, and the guide helped us with any altitude sickness we suffered from.
The only downsides were that I would've preferred ... Continue Reading

Inca trail reservation review

I had a great time doing the Inca Trail with Inca Trail Reservations. The guide was excellent, he gave good brief of the plan for each day, and was knowledgeable about the Incas explaining in good English.
The porters amazed me having tents ready for us on arrival and drinks and not long after food. The food was also ... Continue Reading

Jessicas review

I was very well looked after by all of the staff. I found the second day very difficult and the rest of the group were miles ahead of me and yet there was always a guide who stayed with me and I never felt rushed.
The food was amazing considering we were on top of a mountain. A fault ... Continue Reading

Even though I had to take a horse !

I am not even sure where to begin. I travel, a lot, this was by far the most amazing experience I've had traveling. From the moment we had our first meeting I knew it would be amazing, I think we got super lucky with the group of people we were with, including that amazing Raul ! This just made the ...

One of my bucket list

When I was 8 years old, my school teacher asked me to do an essay about the Inca empire, and especially Machu Picchu. Since I wrote that essay I had in my mind to visit the city and ruins. I want to say that finally I did it. The experience was great. The four days of my trail where perfect. ... Continue Reading

The highs and lows

Had a fantastic time and all the team were very good and informative. Despite feeling very tired after my "highs and lows", I enjoyed it so much with great memories. The porters offered a great service and were unbelievably helpful and the cooks gave us some wonderful meals.
Even when our spiritual were low the team managed to keep ... Continue Reading

My awesome adventure

Challenging at worst, but magical and enchanting at it's best. This would best describe my 4 day - 3 night Inca Trail experience. The hike itself did not hinder the determination and sheer thrill that the tour guides (and fellow hikers) brought to the whole experience.
Food was sumptuous and well prepared, staff attentive and accommodating, campsites mediocre, however ... Continue Reading

I love to challenge myself to a ... Continue Reading

Conditions on the trails were ideal, the camping gear provided was top notch. Transport to the start of the walk was great.
The first day ... Continue Reading
