Inca Trail

What an awesome trek ! Our guide was so helpful and kept us going even in the most difficult parts. Also a special thanks to all our porters... without them, this trek would not be possible. All my respect for them.
The first day was relatively easy, with some uphill, flat and downhill parts. Also saw some beautiful ... Continue Reading

Surreal

Viver esses quatro dias foi mais que uma aventura, foi como estar mais perto de Deus, por meio da mãe natureza. Ao terminar só consigo pensar em uma coisa: proporcionar esta experiência fantástica aos filhos que ainda terei. Chegar a Machu Picchu após tanto esforço é como chegar ao paraíso, o paraíso na Terra.
Além disso, toda a estrutura ... Continue Reading

Trilha surpresa

Comecei a trilha com a confiança de que a natureza somente me surpreenderia, pois logo no primeiro dia chegamos ao ponto onde almoçariamos e me deparei com não só uma comida excelente em meio à selva mas um serviço sem igual, muitos restaurantes no Brasil não só tem a falta do serviço como da culinaria excelente.
Deixo aqui minhas ... Continue Reading

Inca Trail trek

The Inca Trail trek was a great experience, stunning views, guides were knowledgeable. The whole experience was great, enjoyed all the beautiful Peru scenery. The food that was provided was good, they will cater to you if you are a vegetarian. During the trek you are able to go at your own speed and stop and take pictures and rest ... Continue Reading

An excellent and challanging experience

Such a fantastic experience and I would definitely recommend it to those that love hiking in the mountains and learning about different cultures. Our guides were very educated in Incan history and able to answer all our questions, the tents were set up and ready to go when we got there and there was plenty of good food and company. ...

Run Forrest run

The strength of the porters shocked me at first on the first day of the trail. I was amazed to see these strong men running down the beautiful paths of the mountains. Thank goodness the weather was perfect for four days or I would have felt even worse for them. We found out along the way that many of the ... Continue Reading

Once in a life time … Yep only once :)

This is one of the most difficult and one of the most rewarding things that I have ever done. The trip was amazing but not for the faint of heart. Grueling trails with lots of physical and mental challenges. Make sure that you are in good aerobic condition and are used to hiking. Day two is a killer where we ... Continue Reading

My Machu Picchu walk in the park

My walk in the park to Machu Picchu I found very invigorating. You could push yourself as hard as you wanted or just follow along with the crowd because there was quite a varying array of people from all over the globe with different degrees of fitness. I got to meet a lot of nice people of varying nationalities and ... Continue Reading

Absolutely unforgettable experience

The most amazing, self fulfilling things I have had the opportunity to experience. One foot in front of the other pushing all physical limits and seeing just what the body is capable of doing when you put your mind to it. This was a dream two years in the making. Although at the time the dream was simply to see ... Continue Reading

Allillanchu ? Allillanmi

This was amazing adventure ! I can't say enough about how wonderful the scenery was, how great the food was and how awesome our guides were. From the first night at our introduction meeting, Carlos, our guide was so friendly and laid back... very welcoming. I just knew it was going to be a great time. Carlos and Hilton were ...

Rough luxury

Ok, so I love to hike. Not so much to camp. Inca Trail Reservations made it an incredible experience. By the time we rolled into the campsite, tents were already pitched and Happy Hour was being set up. Although I am not vegetarian, I requested vegetarian meals, and they were delicious.
Hot tea was delivered with a personal wake ... Continue Reading

One down, six to go

You have seen the pictures of one of modern Seven Wonders of the World. Correction, you have seen the picture of Machu Picchu, but it does nothing to capture the sheer beauty of the Andes. There is a reason Inca built their great city in this place. It was a sacred place to them. The sense of the place is ... Continue Reading

Hiking the Inca Trail

What started out as a dream vacation definitely finished as one as well. My group of 10 coworkers, who set off to hike the Inca Trail had trained (in varying degrees) to be able to successfully endure the long steep hike at an altitude that continued to take our breath away after every few steps. I had attempted to hire ... Continue Reading

Definitely get a porter for the trip. The guides ... Continue Reading

Inka Trail and Machu Picchu

Loved this trip ! Inca Trail Reservations did a fabulous job for us and I would highly recommend this company for your trip of a lifetime. One suggestion would be for the meeting time the day before the hike begins, be at an earlier time in the day. 6:30 pm is too late, because we still had to eat dinner ... Continue Reading
