Entertaining experience

The Inca Trail was awesome ! Yes, it was challenging with endless stair cases, steep climbs and not very flat "Inca flats", however, the hike was overall very rewarding. When you are surrounded by adventurous gringos representing various parts of the world who make the entire experience entertaining you almost forget about how many more stairs you have to climb ...

De nada, de nada

Thank you for the unforgettable adventure ! I had the best time during my trek of the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. I found the company Inca Trail Reservations great to work with, which was important for me as I was communicating my booking via email from New Zealand. There was also a very useful pre-trip meeting in Cusco where ... Continue Reading

Not the easiest thing I have ever done but well worth the effort. Hiking down from the Sun Gate to Machu Picchu on the final day you definitely feel like you have achieved something and have the right to look down on the day trippers. We were incredibly lucky with both the weather and the people we had in our ... Continue Reading
