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
Trip to Machu Picchu
This trip was a wonderful and adventurous experience. Our guided tour with David Quispe was very informative and well planned. 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
You Have To Try It!!!
I am a backpacking guide in the US and thought it was about time for me to try out being a participant. Gosh do they make it easy! From the time I was picked up at the airport to when they dropped the group off back in Cusco I felt completely taken care of the entire tiem. Our guides were ... Continue Reading
Amazing Experience, Amazing People
The tour was one of the best experiences of my life, if not the best.
Each member of the group was a pleasure to be with and they made the Inca trail an even better experience. Mentions to Patrick, Evan, Alex, Felix, Tomas, Jimmy, Leah, Merci and the awesome Brazilians. Superb people, great moments with all ... Continue Reading
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 ...

Hardest thing you will accomplish
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
I thoroughly recommend the 5 day Salkantay Trek. I'm a 55 year old retired teacher, and I thought it might be a little tough for me. I did the trip with my daughter, and we were part of a group of 4 people.
We chose this trip as it was available and we thought it might be a ... Continue Reading
Inca trail finally
Wow, the inca trail. I finally did it! I have been waiting to see the ancient city for many years and I can tell you for sure, I was not disappointed at all. The 4 day trek before reaching Machupicchu was such a great experience. Great flora and fauna, great food, great team and overall a once in a life ... Continue Reading
