the salkantay trail and machu picchu
Our salkantay trek started on June 5. we were picked up at our hotel. unfortunately our pickup was delayed by about an hour. Because it was also raining, our guide (Raul) decided to drive to the first base camp rather than hike there. We were cool with that, since the first half day of hiking would only have been on ...

The ONLY Way to See Machu Picchu
You´ll hear from bloggers that it´s critical to not skimp on your tour service when you hike the Camino Inca, but Inca Trail Reservations provided AMAZING service for the price.
Pickup arrangements were smooth, the pre-trek briefing was comprehensive. An important note: the company PROVIDES sleeping mats, but you are responsible for CARRYING them if you do ... Continue Reading
Once in a Lifetime Experiance
Our trip on the Inca Trail was a check off the ¨bucket list.¨ Inca Trail Reservations made our booking easy, and provided regular updates (as needed) during our planning stages. They were also helpful in suggesting other, additional trips that we might enjoy. We used this service to book our tickets to Huayna Picchu.
We were picked ... Continue Reading
a lot of fun, good food,fabulous views
We went on the 4-day Inka trail not exactly knowing what is expected in terms of fitness and gear. The guide was well-prepared and the nightly stops were organized well. The facilities along the trail however are not necessarily equipped for the large amount of people that do the trail. There was a huge amount of good tasting food for ... Continue Reading
I did the Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu and thought the trek was amazing. The first thing that stood out is how good the food was. I was expecting typical camping food. There were two chefs that would go ahead of the group, carrying not only all our backpacks but also all the food and kitchen supplies.
When ... Continue Reading
Caroline Reuter and Carson Pickens
We had a wonderful time on our trek. We were fortunate to have beautiful warm sunny weather the entire time. Our fellow trekkers were positive, friendly people and we had a blast playing a card game we learned from our guide, called Donkey, in the evenings. The views were fantastic and the scenery was varied. The hot springs in Santa ... Continue Reading
the Salkantay Trek as an amazing way to see Peru
I went on the Salkantay Trek with my good friend, and we had an amazing time together! We were picked up from the airport by the staff, which was highly appreciated. The Trek staff also gave an orientation session prior to the trek which was very informative and helpful. We felt very well prepared before leaving.
During the ... Continue Reading
Anna Campbell Salkantay Review
I thoroughly enjoyed my Salkantay trekking experience. I have never participated in a trek like this one before. I was very impressed with how the Salkantay.Org staff volunteered to pick us up at the airport upon our arrival to Cusco.
It was very helpful to me to get a ride directly to my hotel and recommendations of other ... Continue Reading
Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu
One day after we completed our trek to Machu Picchu we sit in the Salkantay.org office in Cuzco trying to possible sum up a trip of a life time. The Salkantay trek was definitely a challenge for myself and 3 hiking partners but the experience could not have been made better by our guide David. We were fortunate enough to ... Continue Reading

We had the opportunity to meet many local people throughout the trip that were all very generous, welcoming and pleasant to be around. Throughout our adventure to Machu Picchu we had the opportunity to visit several geographical sites and had ... Continue Reading
Team Molyneaux conquer the Inca Trail
Visiting Machu Picchu had been a lifelong dream of mine. When my wife, Stacie, and I began planning our trip, we discovered Inca Trail Reservations, and the opportunity to do more than simply visit. Instead, we could actually hike the Inca Trail!
We began our four day trek led by our guides, Gerson, the comedian, and Hilton, the quiet ... Continue Reading
What an amazing experience, Salkantay.org have been very professional in every way. My arrival in Cusco was quite a shock as I realised the altitude was having a bigger effect on me than what I thought it would. My enthusiasm to get myself to my hotel had me miss my collection. Even though this was largely my fault, they offered ... Continue Reading
Fantastic Inca Trail
HI my name is Jim Corbett and I live in BC Canada.
The Inca Trail was one of the most fantastic experiences of my life.
The orientation was great and gave us a good idea what to expect on the trail. I would suggest anyone over the age of 40 hire a porter.
The group consisted of ... Continue Reading
Amazing few days on the trail!
Cannot reccomend doing the Inca Trail enough, it was harder than expected, especially in the rain, but after 3 nights camping, to arrive before the rest of the tourists on top of Machu Picchu was an incredible feeling.
The group we were with and the porters and the guides were all amazing and everyone managed to keep ... Continue Reading
An awesome experience for me
I started my inca trail on the 17th of april. I had no idea what to expect. Some people told me it'was really hard, other people told me it wasn't that hard as they imagined. The first day of the trek the guide picked me up at my hostel around 5.30.
We were with a group of 5 people. ... Continue Reading
