Salkantay

The Salkantay trek gives variation from high peaks, amazing views and landscapes.
Starting in the cold and rocky mountains and ending in the warm humid jungle.
The food and service during the trek was excellent, it was a joy to see what the cook made for us everyday and the guide told nice stories about the surroundings.

Thirty minutes for ten soles

The second day was the hardest because of the alltitude which stressed me more than the wandering up and down. All in all for an untrained hiker the trail was very hard to handle. I really enjoyed to be with our guide who was courage and had lots of information about the landscape and the culture.
The staff crew ... Continue Reading

Picturesque ALS ice bucket challenge

A buddy and I decided on this trek because the Inca Trail passes were sold out. That turned out to be a blessing in disguise because this was one of the best experiences in my life. Our guide Ramiro was wonderful, funny and thoughtful. We started the trek at Mollepata, with just a day pack. The horses carried our overnight ... Continue Reading

Salkantay trek 4d3n

We did the Salktantay Trek in August during the dry season and it was absolutely phenomenal. Despite tough uphill treks which will test your endurance and long downhill paths (with gravel and sand) in certain locations, the views and the entire experience was well worth it.
I hope by giving my testimony it will encourage future trekkers to go ... Continue Reading

Inca Trail

I heartily recommend the Inca Trail Reservations outfit your next trek. Our guide Gerson was fluent in English and very personable. His commentaries added color to every Inca site we visited. The porters did an amazing job in carrying our luggage and setting up our camp every night. A true highlight of the trip, in the communal dinner, we warmed ... Continue Reading

We did 1 day Inca Trail with Inca Trail Reservations. It was a great experience. We visited several Inca sites and our guide, Grover, was very helpful. The whole hike took about 6 hours and we arrived at Sun Gate around sun set. There were many stops along the way for pictures.
It is definitely a great option if ... Continue Reading

Inca trail 2 days

We visited Machu Picchu today with a wonderful tour guide Grover. The tour definitely exceeded my expectations. The scenery was mesmerizing and breathtaking. Even though it was only one day walk, at times felt a little challenging, especially walking up narrow steps in high altitudes.
I would suggest starting the tour as early as possible. Walking in a burning ... Continue Reading

Experiencia maravilhosa

Simplesmente uma viagem inesquecivel e altamente recomendavel para quem gosta de trilhas e montanhismo. Meu marido e eu fizemos o passeio de 5 dias e contamos com o conhecimento, ajuda e suporte do guia Ramiro. Sem duvida nenhuma tem que haver um pouco de preparo fisico porque as caminadas podem durar ate cerca de 12 km e tambem eu recomendaria ... Continue Reading

Amazing but tough !

Completing the trek is just an amazing experience but also it is challenging. Honestly, without the help and support of our guide, Ramiro, my wife and I could not have completed it. His personal attention to our needs made a big difference to have this experience the best.
Several items of my bucket list completed: jump into a ... Continue Reading

Recomiendo este tour y por supuesto a Inca Trail Reservations quienes hicieron posible este ... Continue Reading

Fue la mejor experiencia que he tenido en mi vida, me siento muy bien ... Continue Reading

Inca Trail 4days 3nights

Wow! Where do I start? First off this trip was highly recommended from a friend who did this last year. Setting aside the fact that the trek itself is full of the most beautiful sights I've ever seen, Raul and Ruben were beyond knowledgeable about the trail and history of the Incas which made the trip 100 times more enjoyable. ...

This trek was awesome! It is safe to say it was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. The views were stunning, the food delicious, the guides and porters absolutely wonderful and that was all before we even made it to Machu Picchu. My only regret is that it is already over.
I highly recommend this once ... Continue Reading
