Challenging but absolutely worth it!

This was my first mountain trek and it was a really great experience! From the moment we met our guide Victor he was friendly and energetic.
He really made the whole experience better. Originally I was worried I would not be able to do the main hike, which was on the second day. However, even though it was ... Continue Reading

Well-Rounded Adventure of a Lifetime

This tour is much more than a trek, it's an adventure of a lifetime! We combined walking through nature, cloud forests and jungle with climbing sacred mountains, zip-lining, resting in hot springs, making coffee, and new friends / family.
Victor is a wonderfully experienced guide with enthusiasm, positive attitude, knowledge about the Incas and landscape along with a passion ... Continue Reading

We made it!

It was everything I hoped it would be!. Challenging, inspirational and beautiful. I pushed myself as far as I could go but I never could have done it without our guide, Rony, and team (five porters and our cook) supporting me and the rest of our group.
They worked the hardest, went the longest, and carried the heaviest throughout ... Continue Reading

Our guide, cook, and porters made the whole trip possible and I am so thankful for them. My favorite place overall was the cloud mountain. What an amazing ... Continue Reading

We survived the Gringo Killer

Our 4 day Inca Trek to Machu Pichu was a tough but fun and rewarding adventure - we loved it.
The trek took us up mountain peaks of over 4000 meters, through Jungle paths and past Inca ruins in a constantly changing landscape and scenery. The highlight for me was reaching the sun gate early on the morning ... Continue Reading

Gringo Tours 2016

Huge shout out to our super guide Rony and our army of porters. They were all amazing, funny, and knowledgable of the trail.
All four days of the trek provided their own dificulties, none more so than day three when I suffered terrible altitude sickness. Everyone however was terrific and looked after me wonderfully. I'm told the porters ... Continue Reading

A really tough but very rewarding trek. Everything about the adventure was surprising even though I had heard so much about it.
The guide, Ronnie, spoke great English and explained all about the Inca history as well as local traditions. The porters and chef also did an amazing job and the trip could not have been possible without ... Continue Reading

Machu pichu may 24

I had a fantastic hike with inca trail reservations. Our guide Ronny was fantastic from the beginning, always providing plenty of information about the local region and history of the inca's, as well as having a friendly personality and great sense of humour.
Ronny was particularly helpful and caring when my partner became ill on day 3. Ronny ensured ... Continue Reading

“Adventures begin where the Mountains meet the Sky :)”

The trip started nicely early morning from Cusco listening to local music which made a nice atmosphere from the very beginning. We were a small group of five people with the Tour Guide so felt like being in a family.
The route we followed every day was hiding beautiful surprises with stunning views from Mountains,Rivers and lots of nature ... Continue Reading

I survived

I have to say that this was a very nice trip. A lot of beautiful scenery on the way while hiking.
Tour Guide was very friendly and knowlegable. He shared the information with us very clearly. One star less for the food that was very poor for breakfast and with no options for people with special food requirements. ... Continue Reading

The doc

Over all I enjoyed the trip. It was tougher at parts than I expected but there was often alternatives offered. The alternatives however were not up to the standard I expected however. These were along public dirt roads and not trail as advertised. I found our guide very good for the most part but I found that he pushed his ... Continue Reading
