Mr. Michael

The start of this adventure was filled with wonder and anticipation. We met with our fellow adventurers in our trek meeting at the Inca Trail Reservations office in Cusco. The explanation of what we could expect was explained. We started off at 5:30 am carrying our bags to the coach where we eventually picked up all the trekkers and porters. ... Continue Reading

Amy the adventurer

This has been the most rewarding experience. The trail was hard but the moral from the guides Edwin and Jim helped all of our group persevere when the trail was tough. Edwin was very informative with his explanations, his depth of knowledge about the trial made it interesting.
The trail was challenging. Going up was hard work but ... Continue Reading

Jacque ‘the tank’

Wow what an adventure, met some amazing people, our group became such a team, helping each other out. The walk was tough but manageable, not sure if I'd have managed it without a porter though as day 2 was a climb. Woken up with a cocaine tea lol, the food was amazing better than a restaurant at home. Amazing views ... Continue Reading

Fascinating trip

Great trip in general. The Inca Trail is very beautiful, although we went in the rainy season. Great hikes and nice mountains. Had a super group with a lot nice people, with whom we had lot of fun. The food was nice as well, which was Peruvian with variety. I especially liked the popcorn (which isn't very Peruvian). And also ... Continue Reading

Porter on your left

This trip was nothing like I expected ! It was much more difficult. Such raw beauty. Great kind, compassionate, unique people. Porters... Most hard working people I have ever seen. I will never complain again. Who hikes in sandals and doesn't fall? This people deserve gold medals.
The hike had so many variations of green. Food was better than ... Continue Reading

I'm ready for a sleep since ... Continue Reading

A nice experience

I had a good experience with the 4 days Inca Trail. The first day was a rather easy day, a training day, but that was nice because then we had time and energy to get to know the others in the group. The second day was the hardest, but still a good and beautiful day.
The whole trail was ... Continue Reading

I made it

It was really good trip. Unfortunately I got sick the second day but still it was a very good experience. One of the guides carried my bag the hole 3rd day. And I wouldn't had made it without him.
It was so beautiful and you have good time to take some really good pictures. It was nice that you ... Continue Reading

Leg pain never felt this good

Cloud kissed mountains, ancient ruins, and babbling brooks - the Inca Trail has it all. Combine that with absolutely delicious food and an upbeat tour guide, and this experience is more than I could have hoped for. Granted, I was sweating buckets and felt like I had the geriatric knees of a 90 year old woman, but it's an experience ... Continue Reading

Becoming a porter

I started the hike with mixed feeling. Wasn't sure if the hike would be watered down for the mass tourists or an intense hike to weed out the beginners. I was pleasantly surprised to find the trip was a physical challenge for a seasoned hiker and backpacker, but with conveniences that allowed me enjoy the views and experience. Other than ...

Trekking with the King

I have traveled 6,000 miles purely to visit Machu Picchu and I was not disappointed ! The trek was amazing and I think we encountered just as many emotions as weather conditions. It was hard work in places but well worth the effort to see the amazing views.
The staff on the trip were amazing. The porters were ... Continue Reading

Inca power

My expectations of the trail, guides and entire experience was better than what I imagined. The reward of accomplishing this challenge is quite amazing. Carlos, King of the Mountain and Jorge, made the adventure entertaining, informative, and a once in a lifetime trip ! When feeling exhausted, we just had to say "Inca Power" to keep going.
Thanks again ... Continue Reading
