Trek through inca ‘flats’

Hi, I am from San Francisco and only did the trek as it was on my bucket list. I had heard a wide range of stories from how difficult it can be and how there are tears and quite a few "why the heck am I doing this".
I am not a big Trekker and expected to be one ... Continue Reading

Amazing!

The Inca Trail trek to Macchu Picchu was at times difficult, rewarding, awe-inspiring, hilarious, and emotional - and sometimes all at once! We were told that Day 2 was the hardest but even day 3 was tough in its own way (although very pretty too!) and the effort of all the days piles quickly. But the flambéed bananas and cake ...

Ow. But worth it.

The four day Inca Trail hike to Machu Picchu with Inca Trail Reservations is an exceptionally well-organized, but fairly challenging, four day hike through absolutely beautiful country.
The trail itself ranges from easy and flat to long, steep climbs at 14k feet elevation - certainly not easy, but rewarding both in sense of accomplishment and in sheer beauty. The ... Continue Reading

Great experience! Tough trek but the scenery is beautiful which makes it 100% worth it! The guides were very knowledgable on the history of the ruins as well as the local area, pointing out various flowers and plants along the way.
The camping arrangements were equally amazing; great food, and comfortable lodging. I especially loved how the first night ... Continue Reading

Extreme Endurance Test

I am not going to just say that the experience was amazing. That would be an understatement. My trek was manned by 2 amazing guides with a supporting cast of chef and crew who created magic with food that they served each meal.
It goes without saying how difficult it is to do this type of service trip after ... Continue Reading

Not only did we have the opportunity to learn about the Inca culture, but we felt as though we were part of it for a short time. We had ... Continue Reading
