Where to begin. 5 days with strangers. By the last day they all felt like family. We froze, sweat, cried and smiled together.
What brought us together was the love for the culture of Peru. Our guide Juan Carlos was very knowledgable and shared so much history along the way. Our chef Beltran impressed us more and ... Continue Reading

The hard uphill sections give you ... Continue Reading

Unbelievable pictures from the 4 day hike!! I would highly recommend doing this hike (if physically able) instead of only taking the train to see Machu Picchu because you gain such ... Continue Reading

Unforgettable experience

The 4-day trekking with Inca Trail Reservations was won-der-ful!. The Chaskis (heroes!) and our two guides Manuel and Bernardo helped us discover the true beauty of the Peruvian Andes and the mysterious history of the Incan empire.
