Overall, the Machu Picchu adventure was a fun adventure. We had an awesome family to do the trek with.
The first day trekking covered a good distance, which allowed for our body to adjust to the difference in elevation and to the difference in climate. The first night was the hardest night, temperature was cold, however the guide ... Continue Reading
Two weeks notice
I booked this trip two weeks before the start date looking for an adventure and an experience that i have never experienced before.
My expectations were met everyday of the trip. Before arriving i had a great connection with my agent Nory. She was very helpful and responded promptly to all of my questions. My guide ... Continue Reading
May need new legs but worth it!!
A great experience and nothing like anything i have done before. I enjoyed the fact we were a smaller group of 6 as we were all able to keep up a similar pace and not be held up by large group numbers, as well as get to know one another.
Our guide; Marco, was encouraging informative and had a ... Continue Reading

The Salkantay trek was very fun. We had a good group and a good guide.
The first day is the most challenging, with four hours of uphill, and an hour of downhill. The lunch and dinner were very hearty and tasty. The night was very cold and maybe another blanket would have helped.
The second day was challenging ... Continue Reading
From high heels to hiking boots
I live in a big city and spend most my days in high heels, but this past week I traded my high heels for hiking boots with our tour guides Paul and Jimmy.
While i expected beautiful sites and breathtaking moments (literally) i was not expecting the personalization that Paul provided. From endless questions to sharing ancient Incan ... Continue Reading

Glamping in Peru
This trek was by far the hardest trek I have ever done, but most rewarding. The first two days I thought I wouldn't make it but Raul and Jimmy (best tour guides ever) was always behind or in front making sure we made it to the finish.
They made the trek enjoyable. My favorite part was when we ... Continue Reading
Holy Altitude Batman
I was unfortunate enough to get a sever case of altitude sickness in Cusco so I unfortunately had to miss most of the hike.
The company was great at working with me to help me find other options, but naturally lost my money. They allowed me to add on another tour but it did cost extra. The day ... Continue Reading

The staff made everything feel smooth and easy, from setting up tents to cooking delicious food. They ... Continue Reading

Hardest hike I've ever done in my life but by far the best experience I've ever had. The views were stunning, the food was amazing, and the guides were nothing less then extraordinary.

Can I pet an alpaca?
Overall great experience on this trek. The tour guides were very helpful and would always inform us of each days activities or change in plans.
In addition they were helpful in helping people that lagged behind by motivating us. Jimmy would also capture out memories by taking pictures throughout our trip.The whole chef and his team ... Continue Reading
You need to do this
My wife and i undertook this adventure having very little experience with this sort of trip.
From the start our guides were wonderful helping everyone, from the most experienced to the novices with a terrific attitude. The horseman carried the bulk of our gear making the trek all the more enjoyable. Our cooks were amazing. The ... Continue Reading
