Outstanding Views

Reflecting back on the trek: great value for the price paid, a couple of unexpected glitches but overall a great experience! The fantastic thing about a guided tour, and this was my first, was the guide pointing out things that would normally be missed when solo-hiking: a flower along the trail, an edible fruit, the Incan history of the trail ...

Go in with an open mind and realize this may be the hardest thing you have ever accomplished. I thought I was in pretty good shape, running and doing stair climbing. However, with the altitutide and the trek itself it kicked my butt.
I was pleasantly surprised at the ease at arriving into Cusco and being picked up ... Continue Reading

We chose this trip as it was available and we thought it might be a ... Continue Reading
