Our guides, best teachers

This trip was a blast. I was lucky enough to be in a group with my dad, uncle, cousin, and friends, all led by Carlos (el sensei) y Jorge (Jerry el chivito). They led and helped us through the trail, teaching us all about the significance of the ruins and symbolic architecture.
I want to especially thank Jorge for ... Continue Reading

I made it at 59 years old

I am a relatively inexperienced backpacker who ran four miles three times a week (with additional conditioning) for about two months, and realized I was not in the best shape for the 4 day trip. I am also 59 years old. The Inca Trail Reservations tour guides were monitoring my situation constantly and making accommodations for my personal situation.

Time travel successfully executed

My Inca Trail adventure was incredible. This trip took me to the most beautiful countryside on Earth. I was surrounded by soaring peaks and gentle grasslands interrupted by wonderful waterfalls that floated into rushing rivers. I collected some impressive vertical mileage along this 4 day journey that amounted to miles, not just thousands of feet.
The most awesome element ... Continue Reading

By far, my most memorable experience in Peru so far has been traversing the Inca Trail with the wonderful Carlos - "King of the mountains". I would recommend this trek to anyone. I have backpacked a bit before, but day 2 of this 4 day hike was one of the most exhilarating days of my life. So intense and so ... Continue Reading

Ground control to major Tom

The entire trek was tight. Our guide Carlos is clearly a legend of old resurrected to bring us through the darkness, into the light. Everything from the scenery to the food, to the trail itself was awesome. Our porters were excellent as well.
Along the way we encountered many different tour groups and while it was great to be ... Continue Reading

KFC: Kentucky Fried Cuy

Really great experience. Lots of fun, met some really awesome people, beautiful mountains, and a feeling of personal accomplishment. Our guides, Carlos and Jorge were friggin dope. There's nothing like the traditional Inca Trail. I loved it.
The second day was legitimately one of the hardest treks of my life, but me and my friend killed it and ... Continue Reading

The crazy Incas

My Inca Trail adventure was a very good one, probably majority being the good weather we had for the time of year, mid January. They say practice makes perfection and I believe this is how the whole trek was operated.
I'll start with our guide, who operated in a very professional manner. He always made sure we know what ... Continue Reading

The guide we had was Americano and he ... Continue Reading

Epic Andean adventure

Such a great Inca Trail trip, far surpassed my expectations. Four hard days of high altitude trekking is not for the faint-hearted, but incredibly rewarding. The trail leads through several ancient Inca sites enroute to Machu Picchu, each displaying unique architecture with a story to tell.
But for me the archaeology took second place to the truly breathtaking surroundings; ... Continue Reading
