Thanks for the amazing experience!

First of all I want to thank our guides Raul and Guido for everything. They were very helpful with all the group members and gave us a lot of informations about the trail, inca history and inca culture. More than guides, they became friends to me.
For me the trail was much easier than I expected. The ... Continue Reading

reflecting on life on the Inca Trail

Coming to Cusco I was not entirely sure what to expect for my hike on the Inca trail. Prior to arriving at the Inca trail I had only done minor day hikes in moderately challenging terrain. Because of this I truly appreciate the advice given by the tour advisors and the Inca Trail Reservations website regarding what equipment to bring ... Continue Reading

Inca trail excursion

The Inca trail excursion was probably one of the most rewarding yet strenuous adventures of my life!
Despite being what I consider pretty fit, the altitude was something that I was not prepared for. The first day on the trail was smooth sailing. We saw some amazing sites and got to camp closed to dusk. The food was ... Continue Reading

They really did a great job ensuring that we had tasty meals, proper sleeping accommodations, and were informed about the different ruins we were seeing along the way. Right off the bat, they did a great job of coordinating with me since I wasn’t in ... Continue Reading

My Inca Trail Experience with Inca Trail Reservations

It was Dec. 12th 2012. My alarm buzzed at 5:40 am.

I soon got on a bus with 16 other hikers – a nice welcoming family from ... Continue Reading

Inca Trail 4 Days/3nights.

Hiking the Inca Trail was an experience of a lifetime. It was very difficult and very exciting. The first day was beautiful and fairly easy. The sun was out for the morning but it rained in the afternoon. However, the rain was light and warm so it was not bothersome. Our trail guide, David, was very helpful and friendly. He ...

Best Hike of My Life

Cusco is the most fascinating city I have been to in my life. The city is surrounded by many Incan ruins that each have their own interesting story that connects them all together. I liked exploring the ruins and listening to the history and significance of each place. I spent two days before the Incan Trail tour exploring the ruins ... Continue Reading

They made creative and delicious food from the limited variety of ingredients that were available. The guides, Rueben and Maru were really helpful and supportive, especially to those in the group ...

The Inca Trail

I have just come back from the 4 day trek to Machu Picchu. There are different things to say about doing this trek. There were especially two things which made a huge impact on how the trip was for me. First of all the trek itself was, well, much harder than I would have thought it to be - it ... Continue Reading
