Is this real ?

During the trip we were wondering a couple of times: "Is this a dream?" It was a wonderful trip with a lot of great moments. 4 days of amazing landscapes, humming birds, Llamas and waterfalls.
What a unique feeling to get woken up with coca tee in the middle of the jungle between two waterfalls - unbelievable ! Also ... Continue Reading

The Inka Trail was one of the most amazing experiences of my life ! I learned so much with our tour guide Raul, who is smart and extremely knowledgeable and it is clear to everyone that he loves what he does. Our other tour guide Marco was also great because he motivated us to never give up.

Vivir la vida

Un comienzo dudoso, no estaba convencido de hacer el camino, venia como acompañante. Todo cambio en el momento que comenzó la aventura. Se tornó una aventura, un desafío personal, una cuestión de orgullo propio. Difícil el camino lleno de adversidades y muchas ganas de bajar las manos todo el tiempo. Hacia mucho que no sentía tanto temor a no poder ... Continue Reading

Papito rico

Fantastic experience ! Our guides Raul and Marco helped us through the whole walk and also shared the history of the many ruins as well as Inca culture in general. The difficulty of the walk made Machu Picchu even more magical, and the walk itself was even more special than the famous ruins at the end.
I highly recommend ... Continue Reading

One lazy leg

Good hiking, good food, good guide and good times ! We were the lazy legs team, but after a little slip I had a little issue with one of my legs. Really, it was a blessing in disguise, because I got to have our guide rub icy cool cream on my leg. That alone was worth it !
After ... Continue Reading

The ‘multiculture’ of our group

I had an amazing time on the trip. From the longest, most strenuous day of hiking of my life to shot gunning a beer at the highest elevation I have ever been to never understanding how the game "mafia" worked to playing football and beating Paul's team in a great match where I could barely breathe while playing to "holy ...

Paul’s Peruvian parade

I was very excited to have the tour pick me up at the airport in Cusco upon my arrival. Felt like I was relaxing the second I stepped out of the airport and could ignore all the heckling taxi cab drivers trying to seduce me into their taxis... I simply pointed to a man holding a sign with my name ... Continue Reading

Holy water, lazy legs

The adventure on the Inca Trail was nothing like I've experienced before. From the heavy pack, to the second day, to the food, and of course our guide. Paul made the experience unforgettable, not that Pachamama doesn't do this herself, but Paul made it. His knowledge was delivered with passion and his humor was tolerable. Ha !
We made ... Continue Reading
