Machu Picchu was a very cool experience. And the people were very cool. I got a little sick at first but I got better after a couple of days.
Since I was little weak, I got to be a cowboy for the day and ride up to the top of the mountain, it was very fun.
I then ... Continue Reading
The trip was great. The hiking was a challenge, but not too hard. Mostly the speed was fast, but not too fast. The group stayed mostly together. And when it was necessary they stopped and waited for the others. But we have not to wait for a long time. Especially on the second day it was good to do the ... Continue Reading
This is a challenging hike but has a variety of views and scenery. The rocky peaks and Mt. Salkantay are amazing - my poor little camera was less than adequate. Our guide and staff worked very hard to make it a successful trek for everyone. The wake up tea each morning was wonderful.
I had a great time and ... Continue Reading
I booked the trip with Salkantay.org. I did not know what to expect. Before the trip I got a short information about the trip.
The next day the trip started at 6.30 am. A reasonable time for me. We went to a little town almost at our starting. The breakfast was good. Afterwards we started the hike. This was ... Continue Reading
Salkantay 5 day trail
Our family hiked this trial in August 2014. In a word: Awesome. We arrived in Cusco and was thoroughly briefed on what we were to bring and also what we should expect.
One very important thing to remember is layers of clothing is a must have, as the temperatures vary from cold to hot. Rain gear can be used ... Continue Reading
We traveled to Peru with our two children (ages 11 & 14) to complete the Salkantay Trek in August 2014. The guides were wonderful and the food was great! Our bags were transported from campsite to campsite by horses and always arrived on time and in excellent condition. The weather was perfect and we met lots of new friends from ... Continue Reading
Trekking with my family
I'm 11 and I went to Peru with my family in the year of 2014. I had a great time on the trail! Definitely a different experience for me. The food was great and the cooks went out of their way to cook me gluten free food!
The people were so nice and were trying to fix a problem ... Continue Reading
Salkantay trail 5 days
Really good surroundings, beautiful views but don't forget it isn't easy hike. You have to come well prepared and have the motivation to hike for approximately 80 km.
The tour guides are professional and fun, they try to enlighten you with nice insights on the nature but most of all on what the Incas are about and what kind ... Continue Reading
Vacation in Peru
We had a great vacation with our family in August. Our children are 14 and 11 years old and they did well but it is a very strenuous adventure. You need to be in excellent shape. Victor and Marco were both terrific and really interacted and energized our team.
The food was good and we had perfect weather. This ... Continue Reading
Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu
I had a great time doing the Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu with Inca Trail Reservations / Salkantay.org. The orientation in Cusco before the trek was very helpful -- Victor (one of the guides) answered all our questions and allayed our fears. The trek itself was beautiful and very well organized.
The best part of the trek was the ... Continue Reading
The whole trek and camping experience was truly magical. I definitely would not have been able to see or do the things I did without this tour group. Let me give you a few reasons why:
The first night we stayed at a beautiful campsite in the mountains, run by a Peruvian family, with beautiful views of the mountains ... Continue Reading
I highly recommend the Salkantay Trek! While my friends have been planning their trip to Peru for over six months, I was a last minute addition to the group. With just two weeks to mentally and physically (I run each day but never long distances) prepare for the trek, I was incredibly anxious; however, from the orientation meeting two days ...

Hike to Machu Picchu
Had a fantastic time on this trip! Professional staff from top to bottom, including the guide, cooks, porters, and other staff member. The whole trip was very well timed and planned out as there were many changes in location throughout the trip.
Our guide, Ramiro, was very professional throughout, encouraging us on the challenging hikes, providing medical attention, and ... Continue Reading
Awesome Salkantay hike
This was an amazing experience! Everyone should use this company if they intend to hike to Machu Picchu. The guides are wonderful and well informed. They are great motivators and really help you reach those 4,000 meters. The food is also wonderful. Every meal is huge! They give you so much. It's all delicious.
Otherwise Salkantay trail is a ... Continue Reading
Salkantay Trek !
The trip was awesome. High mountain passes, cool jungle valleys, and, of course, Machu Picchu. All in all, a great time. I could say more about this but it would be superfluous to do so. Remember to bring extra batteries and memory space for all the amazing pictures you will take during the trek.
From the first day of ... Continue Reading
