Bring a shot for the summit

This was the best experience that I have had traveling out of the USA. I never expected to be challenged on this level ! Every moment I turned around there was a beautiful thing to see. I would definitely come back and do this trek again. Be sure you are up for a challenge !

What a nice trip

The food on the camping was really good. The views of the nature are amazing and it change every day. The guides are very supported and it keeps the spirit in the group.
I think it would be a nicer experience if the last night was in tents. It would have been a nice experience. It was my ... Continue Reading

Salkantay with Mr. Victor Victoria

I looked at the Internet reviews before I went on this trip and I'm pleasantly surprised ! It said something about the track being too hard and stuffs but I don't think that at all. It's probably just the second or third day that's somewhat hard otherwise it's pretty easy and (sorry) but there are a lot of getting around ... Continue Reading

The Mescla family of Salkantay

The orientation for the trek left me a little confused, with the plans for the day unknown, and only two others there. So I was surprised when I stepped into the bus the first morning and ten other people piled on, of all different ages and nationalities. Our guides Victor and Martin told us from the beginning that we were ... Continue Reading

Gringo Killer

I expected a challenging trek when we signed up for the four day Inca Trail hike to Machu Picchu, and I was not disappointed ! Though the second day of the hike to Dead Woman's Pass was a bit brutal, the third day was unforgettable and the last stretch into Machu Picchu was some of the most incredible natural scenery ...

I am exhausted

I had an awesome time. Paul is an excellent guide. I don't know if there is any way to request him. The weather was perfect (though that was just luck, I suppose). The trekking was tough, but I did better than I thought I could. The scenery was better than could be captured in pictures.
The food was restaurant ... Continue Reading

I hate my backpack

We had a wonderful experience trekking in Peru and seeing the Incan ruins. The food was absolutely delicious and we learned so much about the Incas. Loved seeing the people who live along the trail and hearing the stories about the Incan people by our guide Paul.
I really liked that we could learn a lot about the culture ... Continue Reading

Squatting is tough

My 3 night 4 day trek on the Inca Trail lead by Paul was by far the greatest adventure in my life to date.
The views along the trail were beyond words, the trek was challenging yet rewarding, the food provided at camp was the best that I experienced in Peru and the first view of Machu Picchu through ... Continue Reading

Yolo trail Adventure

This was one of the most unique experiences of my life. I was not sure what to expect before signing up, but every expectation was met. The tour guides were awesome and the food was exceptional. The chef did a great job of giving us a great glimpse of the Peruvian food culture.
Day 1 was a bit of ... Continue Reading

I did not fall off the mountain

Hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu has been a dream of mine for the last several years, particularly as the number of people entering each day has been limited. Our group booked our trip approximately seven months in advance and were pleased to find that we could book both the hike and Huayna Picchu.
Fast forward to November ... Continue Reading

I survived… and learned about the Incas along the way !

Was very scared about the adventure beforehand. Very happy that I was physically able to complete the adventure. Tour guide and porters were very helpful and great. The Incas were truly innovative people. The food was amazing on this tour.
Day three was by far the hardest for me because I was so tired by then. But, I am ... Continue Reading

I would do it again just for the food

On day one, I learned that my American definition of flat and the Incan definition of flat were two very different things. After trekking for several hours, our group made it up to the first camp site where we were served the best meal I had ever had until that point in Peru. Seriously.
Day two brought the infamous ... Continue Reading

Best quad workout ever

I had an unforgettable time during my trip on the Inca Trail. Booking the trip was incredibly simple. Inca Trail Reservations (specifically Mabel) took care of all of our transportation to and from all locations and answered all of our questions along the way.
Day 1 of the hike was exciting. It was challenging in certain parts, but the ... Continue Reading

Fantastic time

As soon as I was collected from the hotel I was greeted with happy faces and felt welcome with my new Inca family ! Our tour guide 'King of the Mountain' was fantastic and very knowledgeable when it came to any questions. The porters are lovely people who struggle throughout the day with all of the gear but still make ... Continue Reading
