The stairway to Machu

Four days, three nights. Sounded simple 6 months ago when I booked it. Want the extra mountain climb at the end? Yes please!
Four days later and they've gone and booked our goodbye meal in a first floor restaurant, the cruel masters.
As we reflect on the trip it has been an incredible, emotional experience "a real up ... Continue Reading

Great trek!

Great guides, great porters, great food! The guides had a great knowledge of all Inca things, and were passionate about sharing it. They also kept us informed at all times about what was ahead the following day.
The porters did an amazing job carrying our things (we had an extra half porter), and setting everything up; whenever we arrived ... Continue Reading

Satisfying Machu Picchu expedition

Excellent expedition for us! This was one of my most desired vacations and the crew at Inca Trail Reservations made it accessible, very enjoyable. Juan Carlos was always careful to emphasize, and reemphasize safety, but also always made it fun. It was a very memorable experience for me and I would highly recommend Inca Trail Reservations to my friends and ... Continue Reading

Inca Trail

I had a great time on the trail. Juan our guide was super friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable about all the history. It was very relaxed and you were never under pressure to keep up with the group. They let you do it at your own pace which was great if you aren't that fit.
Then the food! ... Continue Reading

Wow! I could not believe I would make it but I did. Nine months ago I injured my left knee, but even after four days of tough climbing I finished the trailed. The views were amazing. The food at camp was the best camp food I've ever had.
My compliments to the chef and the porters were incredible. I ... Continue Reading

Machu Picchu extravaganza

Amazing tour! I learned so much along the way and wouldn't change a single thing. Paul had so many interesting facts throughout the tour and the way he related to each of us individually is something that I've found to be hard to find in a tour guide.
I consider myself very lucky to have had Paul as our ... Continue Reading

Inca Trail

The Inca Trail was an incredible experience that I shall never forget and this was in no small part down to the hard work of Inca Trail Reservations.
The team of porters was truly incredible. Having done the "porter challenge" for the insignificant 10 minutes I gained a huge amount of respect for these athletes. The food they prepared ... Continue Reading

I really enjoyed my four days on the Inca Trail. The trek really built up my understanding of the Inca empire, particularly showing the constant spiritual aspects implicit in Inca life. Not only would I not have picked up on any of this during the walk, but it allowed me to appreciate Machu Picchu in a way I don't think ... Continue Reading
