Bonjour, I hiked this with mon Cherie from France. The "comida" was an experience par excellance, although we spent more money on potable water than on cooked snails, soufflé and commemorative t-shirts combined.
Our group was nice and petit, which was a distinct positive given that after 4 days sleeping in the Horseshit Field of Dreams and encountering more ... Continue Reading
Hipster hikers and learning to pack
Leave all hope for a solitary walk through the jungles and ancient ruins in whatever Belgian university cafe you first planned this trip in. It was arduous but not incredibly so; I saw a grown man hike for 5 days wearing ball-tight skinny jeans just large enough for his "equipment" and a pack of Lucky Strike Menthols.
Prepare for ... Continue Reading
Backpacks and blisters
Sleeping bags. Hiking boots. Tents. No showers. If these are things you aren't used to then this is probably not the trek for you. I have never slept in a sleeping bag and have never not showered for four days but the trek on the Salkantay trail was one of the most rewarding adventures that I have ever been on.

I very much enjoyed the trek. A great group and a great guide ! The uphill on the second day was a killer, but worth it at the top - a most spectacular view !
The different scenery we walked through was beautiful and our knowledgeable guide made it all the better by informing us about the flora and ... Continue Reading
I loved my trek ! Carlos was amazing and very passionate about his tour. We loved the intensity and views of all the different points. There was plenty to see along the way. Our group was a great group and we all had a lot of fun.
I would recommend this trek to anyone that was visiting Peru. I ... Continue Reading
I very much enjoyed my trip. The experience was good and rewarding. While the hike was difficult, it did have a great reward at the end. The food was well prepared and delicious and our guide was very knowledgeable and amiable.
The campsites were just OK, there were a ton of tourists and a lot of younger kids that ... Continue Reading
This was my first trip to both Peru and Machu Picchu. It surpassed all of my expectations. Our guide, Carlos Perez was an amazing, knowledgeable and humorous man who made our group feel like a family. The crew who carried our packs and the cooks made us feel safe and at home.
Carlos gave us something to look forward ... Continue Reading
I have willing to come to Machu Picchu for the past 10 years and finally this dream became reality ! I was very impressed with the organization of the tour, the food and everything that was arranged to please us. Cusco and Aguas Calientes are very neat and interesting towns with a lot to see.
Our guide was Carlos ... Continue Reading
No more uphill !
I had a really truly wonderful time on the Inca Trail finishing in Machu Picchu, Cuzco, Peru. I found walking uphill on millions, millions and millions of steps so hard, but the beautiful and spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, vegetation and mountains meant that every single second was worth it in the end !
It was a shame ... Continue Reading
Had an amazing time on the Inca Trail. The group was fun (and nice and small) and our guide, Lizandro, was great value and provided lots of jokes. The food was incredible and the porters worked incredibly hard for our benefit. I really enjoyed the route and the challenge provided by the hills, especially on the second day.
The ... Continue Reading
Finally its over
I had a great time. Day two was the hardest. Maybe some more bonding like playing cards would have been good. Lizandro was really funny and helpful. The walking gets easier after a bit and the food really is fantastic. The early mornings were fine because we got to bed quite early and had a very relaxing time.
It ... Continue Reading
What a fabulous trip !
We had the best time ! Our guide Lisandro was excellent, the porters and chef gave unbelievable service and meals, and all of the equipment was in excellent condition. The trek is difficult but extremely rewarding, and made easier by the amazing service provided by the company.
They brought us hot water to wash with (awesome after a tough ... Continue Reading
My friend Amber and I recently completed the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu with Inca Trail Reservations. We had a really great time on our 4 day, 3 night hike... despite all the rain ! I can't decide which aspect of the trek was better... the unbelievable sights or the amazing meals provided by the Inca Trail Reservations chef and ... Continue Reading
The Inca Trail was amazing. The four days flew by... even with waking up so early every morning. The sights are breathtaking. Also, one of the best parts has to be the food. The things that the chef can cook in the middle of a trail are mind blowing.
The past four days have been so great and I ... Continue Reading
