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

4 great days

I was a bit nervous before going on the trail about its level of toughness. In the end it was well doable even though not easy, but we were also rather lucky with the weather. I spent 4 great days on the Inca Trail and can absolutely recommend it.
You should definitely bring a pair of walking sticks with ... Continue Reading

Salkantay survival

Guidance and coordination of the trip was very well done. Being 65 and attempting the climbed at the altitudes we were at was too optimistic. By the time I struggled into Aguas Calientes, I care very little about seeing Machu Picchu. I only recommend this for people who are in very good physical shape.
Going in the rainy season ... Continue Reading

Man from La Mancha

This was a great experience throughout. The professionalism and quality was beyond expectation. It was very difficult for me at 65 years of age. My guide, Carlos was very helpful and was able to get me a horse for a portion of the way, however, at 6' 4", I looked like Don Quixote on his horse.
I can recommend ... Continue Reading

What an accomplishment

This four day hike was what I expected and more. Being from Colorado in the US, I've grown up hiking my whole life. This was a totally different experience. Tons of vegetation, amazing views, and hard work for an amazing payoff.
The porters, food and accommodation/tents were comfortable and always well prepared for us at meal times and ... Continue Reading
