I'm grateful that Inca Trail Reservations was so organized and helpful when I decided to book the trip. The correspondence via email was great from the beginning to the night before the trip.
During the trek, I was amazed at ... Continue Reading

Old lady does the Inca Trail

My daughter convinced me to do the 4 day 3 night trail. I didn't think I could do it at the age of 62. Inca Trail Reservations really looked after me . I didn't feel rushed even when it was really hard and the climb got really steep.
The chef and porters were amazing. My vegan needs were catered ... Continue Reading

Aqua por favor

An adventure of a life time, words can not express what an experience the trek was. I went into the trip with an open heart and mind without any expectations. The porters, chef and guides are so accommodating and caring. Waking up each morning with coca tea in my tent was the best way to start my day.

Old lady and daughter go into the wilderness

We were very nervous about doing the Inca Trail. The first day was really easy with gentle inclines. The second day was the hardest. Getting past the Dead Woman's Peak was not easy ! It felt good to have done it.
Day 3 started uphill but once we'd reached our Peak for the day the rest was good. Our ... Continue Reading

My Salkantay trek

From what I read before the trek, I thought the trek would be super hard, but I actually didn't think it was too hard. I thought I would have more trouble getting through it. The food on the whole trek was really good, I am gluten intolerant and the staff were very cooperative with this, always able to offer me ... Continue Reading

This one time in band camp …

Get acclimatized for the hike. It is a much easier hike at the higher elevation and much more enjoyable doing the Salkantay tour. The food is spectacular , from the chef in the make shift kitchen by the tents. The scenery is a must to see. So many different changes in landscapes throughout the hikes.
Lots to see through ... Continue Reading

Chaski’s run

Our tour of Machu Pichu was an amazing experience. The first night was awe-inspiring. In a valley illuminated by the moon surrounded by touring peaks, we got an appreciation of what we could look forward to. Reaching the summit and then descending into the cloud forest gave spectacular vistas.
After so many days of losing and gaining elevation, spending ... Continue Reading

First of all I thought it would be much harder for me, it is a hard trek especially the second day but I think if you are regular fit it wouldn't be any problem. The food was better than I was expecting and you will not go hungry. My guide was very friendly and really wanted us to learn things ... Continue Reading

I wished I were a Llama

We had a really great time on our 4 day Inca Trail adventure organized by Inca Trail Reservations. The trail was gorgeous and Machu Picchu itself was a blast. It was however a really intensive workout. We hiked on average 7 hours a day but the beautiful scenic views compensated for every bit of sweat.
The whole trip was ... Continue Reading
