Peruvian adventures

Such an incredible time exploring Peru for the first time. From snow covered mountain tops to the Amazon jungle, hiking, exploring hot springs, unbelievable views and even a surprise zipline trip! With an experienced and knowledgable guide and great vegetarian options the trek was made comfortable for an inexperienced hiker. My sister got very sick and the guides did their ...

Peruving your worth

Such a rewarding experience completing the Salkantay Trek. I would not have chosen a different way to complete the pilgrimage to Machu Picchu. Had an amazing group of people and the guides were fantastic. The staff is very accommodating and concerned about the well being of everyone. Its hard work but absolutely worth it. Lots of bonding with the staff ... Continue Reading

Happy family

We drove in a bus from Cusco to a village/place called Mollepata. We started the trek from there and walked up to a lake close to a high mountain to feel the altitude.
The altitude up there was 4100 meters above sea level. After that, we went down back where we started for a lunch. After the lunch, ... Continue Reading

Amazing Peru Adventure

My wife and I did the 5-day Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu. It was more difficult... and more rewarding... than we imagined.
The first two days were especially tough with the uphill hike and freezing temperatures. The porters, cooks, and guides did a fantastic job keeping everyone safe, warm, and entertained. Ronny and Jimmy were great, especially on ... Continue Reading

Challenging vacation

We had Ronnie and Jimmy for our Salkantay hike. The trek was more challenging than expected. The first to days had a lot of uphill climbing and the altitude was killer.
That being said I couldn't have asked for better or more attentive guides.
They were always right there with words of encouragement, hot ... Continue Reading

Gran experiencia en las alturas

Inicio en cusco muy temprano. Llegada al punto de partida y presentacion del todo el grupo. Una nueva familia, que poco a poco se afianza hasta al final llorar por el fin de esta aventura y la separacion fisica de esta familia, porque en espiritu siempre seguira unida. La altura hace estragos en algunos, en otros no, pero jamas olvidare ... Continue Reading

Aventura

Habiendo llegado a Aguas Calientes puedo decir que disfruté mucho de todos los días previos. La comida estuvo muy bien, todos muy atentos. El primer día fue muy duro por el frío, pero tengo que agradecer a la agencia porque nos brindó frazadas extras. Todos los lugares me gustaron mucho. Fue mi primer experiencia en hiking y me encantó, me ... Continue Reading

Into the Peruvian Wild

Within 36 hours of arriving in Cusco, my brother and I departed for the Salkantay Trek, leaving ourselves little time to acclimatize to the altitude. Sure enough, our first day was a challenge - constantly short of breath, we took many breaks as we made our way to 4000 meters in altitude. This left us trailing behind the group; however, ...

Salkantay Trek Adventures

The Salkantay Trek was an amazing experience. We began our trek at 3000m above sea level and made our way up to 4500m above sea level.
That was a challenging part of the hike, but our tour guide, Marco, provided a lot of assistance on ascent. Once we reached the 4500m altitude level, we made our ... Continue Reading

Inca trail

The overall organization was very well. The tour guides and porters were all nice to us. The food has a variety and is delicious.
The only thing is that it seems that we were one of the few that camped at a location that was farther away than everyone else on the last day, which meant that we ... Continue Reading
