A climactic experience

Machu Picchu was a once in a lifetime experience. Which was only made better by the incredible team and guide we had. The views and scenery were like nothing I had ever seen and the hardest part was trying not to walk off the cliff as I was constantly staring at the mountains.
Our guide was fun and insightful. ... Continue Reading

I need a massage

The Inca Trail was an experience that I will never forget. Day 1 was a fairly relaxing day with us just getting use to walking the Trail. Day 2 was a much tougher challenge and it really pushed us to the limit. But all the hard work was worth it when we reached 4200 meters and we could look at ... Continue Reading

Was never so glad to drop 30 pounds

When a friend of mine invited me to come along a South America trip, including a 4 day trek, I agreed without thinking twice. After finding out a porter wasn't carrying my bag as I was told, I still brought my entire traveling bag.
While it may have been tough at times, the delicious food and friendly guide helped ... Continue Reading

Walking the horse

Great experience ! Due mostly to Manny and Marco. They both went above and beyond. My first day was very rough (make sure all restaurants thoroughly cook your eggs). I had to rent a horse about halfway through the first day then sleep, sleep, sleep. The whole time Manny knew what to do.
I saw people walking back under ... Continue Reading

Energy from coca tea, good nutrition, and great company

From the very start, the trail guide company was very courteous to my needs. I'm vegetarian and when I reserved my spot for the Inca Trail, I was extremely ecstatic that they offered options that suited my needs. There was enough food, each meal, to eat two meals. The coca tea delivered each morning to our tent, provided excellent energy ... Continue Reading

I did not do much training specifically for this trip. I believe that any normally built ... Continue Reading
