What was I thinking

Walked the road of the Inca and the sights and ruins were incredible. The jewel of Machu Puichu at the end of the trail was a mind blowing experience. I set out on my adventure with a wonderful group of strangers from various corners of the world and we all had fun.
The staff of Inca Trail Reservations was ... Continue Reading

When Americo walked in at the briefing I thought "Is this small Peruvian guy really supposed to take me up the mountain"? But he and his buddy Grober did a great job ! I had a great time with a lot of challenges and some great food. Also a lot of respect for the porters for their great achievement of ... Continue Reading

A reason to come back

Thanks for giving me an amazing experience that I will never forget. A good reason to come back to Peru to make another trip through the Andes. Going up the 4200m was most probably the most difficult thing I ever did. I learned a lot about myself and my limits. I was glad that going down was a lot easier ... Continue Reading

King Kong group on tour

Starting early the first day we arrived to Km 82. The first day was a good trek up to our camp, where we got really good food (fresh trout with rice).
The second day we trekked over the next two passes, which was a lot of fun but very intense at the same time. The views were just stunning ... Continue Reading

Great challenge

I liked the challenge. I am grateful for the water every morning. It was really a life saver. I liked how friendships were developed. The choice of campsites was good, although the toilets left something to be desired, but that was not the fault of the company, and I was very comfortable.
The view was amazing and Grober and ... Continue Reading

Nice event

This was a once in a life time event. The guides were great, the food was wonderful and everyone was extremely friendly. We were extremely lucky to have such great weather during the day, however it rained every night. The sound of the rain as it fell on tent was very soothing at night.
It was nice to see ... Continue Reading

Excellent experience

The trek was the best hiking experience I have ever had ! The food was excellent, they served food straight from a kitchen, as if we weren't camped out in the jungle. Nature and the wilderness were beautiful and loomed over you from every direction.
The company was the best part of the trip, every night was filled with ... Continue Reading

On ... Continue Reading

What an amazing 4 days ! There are so many great things to say about this tour I don't know where to start.

Chasing rainbows

What a trip ! Much harder than I imagined. But I am here sipping, no gulping a cold beer down in Aguas Calientes. Yes I made it, much to my surprise. It was hard for me mostly, but we had a really good guide, Juan Carlos was just perfect. Very knowledgeable, accommodating, organized and he took great care of us ... Continue Reading

Altitude and courtesy

First, let me tell you about the altitude. It is no joke. I walked off the plane, down the steps and could feel the lack of oxygen. There is no way to train or prepare for what you are about to encounter. Your best asset is attitude and appreciation. Your attitude will carry you to the top. Your appreciation for ...

A walk through the clouds

Just completed a 4 day trek in 3 days. I am not an outdoorsy person but I can say, with the help of Carlos, Ronnie and my friends I made it through. It was a physical and mental challenge, not for the faint of heart.
The scenery was breathtaking, Peru is a beautiful country. If you are debating a ... Continue Reading
