Walking THE famous Inca Trail, what an experience! We hiked the trail in a small group of five, all young enthusiastic people. We were lucky to begin the first day with sun and a blue sky. The views were spectacular, and this was just the beginning.
Our guide Carlos told us a lot about the Inca culture and ... Continue Reading

Another Personal Challenge

I did it! When I was planning this trip to visit one of the seven wonders of the world, I had the option of either the easy or the hard way. That would be either taking the bus up to Machu Picchu or actually hiking up the Inca Trail for four days and getting to the destination. I decided on ... Continue Reading

Experiencia fantastica

Hacer el camino Inca ha sido una experiencia fantastica. Habiamos estado planificando este viaje desde principios del 2013 y no solamente no nos ha decepcionado en nada sino que ha sido mucho mas de lo que nos habiamos imaginado.
La experiencia de andar durante cuatro dias por la misma ruta que los Incas utilizaban para acceder a la ... Continue Reading

Having booked this 4D/3N tour through Inca Trail Reservations, we were pleased to receive regular e-mails seeking to assist in our arrangements for accommodation and other activities for our time in Cusco including a pick-up from the airport who was very easy to find.
The introductory talk at the offices located fairly centrally in Cusco proved to ... Continue Reading

Great Guides

The overall experience from Inca Trail was amazing. From the beginning, the person with whom we corresponded about reservations responded quickly to any and all questions we had. This included hotel rooms for various cities along the way not associated with the trek itself.
Our guides were amazing, as well. I encountered some difficulties along the ... Continue Reading

honeymooners survival

We choose to spend part of our honeymoon and the Inca Trail and we probably choose the best agency to organize it. The tour guides were just amazing (Raul, Guido and Elisban).
Always ready to help us and give us courage when, at the dead woman pass for instance, we almost lost the hope to do it. We ... Continue Reading

Whooooop just finished!

Just finished the Inca trail and we loved it.
The first day was all about getting into the right modus of walking and right mindset especially. ´Positive´ like our guide Victor liked to stress. Especially since the second day was going to be quite intense. And intense it was. I was soooo happy to arrive at the highest point ... Continue Reading

Amazing hike

After a very early wake-up, my friend and I met our Salkantay trek group in Cusco. The first breakfast with our family was a bit daunting as everyone talked of their hiking experience in Nepal. Soon after we started walking from Mollepata to the camping place. It was quite easy-going for a first day. Yet, after lunch, we walked up ... Continue Reading

Salkantay adventure

The Salkantay trek was my first trek. At first, the idea came from my friend Marion, who was living in Argentina and wanted to discover Peru. We had to wake-up at 4 am in the morning to join our “family” as Carlos, our guide, named it.
We were eight: the Russian team with Anna and Dacha, the Holland ... Continue Reading
