Seeing the Inca's history unwrap ... Continue Reading

First time camping

Having never been hiking or camping before, I thought I'd do it tough for the first time. And I had the most amazing time on this trek ! From the tour guides, to the porters, cooks and the rest of the group, everyone was fantastic and made this such an enjoyable experience.
There is no way I would have ... Continue Reading

I survived

I was a bit nervous before the adventure, think it was because of my new trekking shoes and too much partying in Cusco... But when the day arrived I was so excited ! We started with the "lazy day", then the second day was coming up, the hardest one. Uphill almost all the way and probably I lost breath for ... Continue Reading

Da hike !

I was impressed from start to finish ! The organization from the first briefing was extraordinary and informative. From there the food proved to be surprisingly excellent (given the conditions). Going forward all the information provided at each archaeological site was in depth and all questions were answered with amazing detail !
Overall from start to finish I was ... Continue Reading

Incredible from start to finish

5 am wake up calls (?!). Dirt under your nails for days. Hours of hiking on sore ankles (cankles?). Wouldn't change a single thing - the entire experience from start to finish was incredible, and the company did an amazing job taking care of the group and making it a memorable journey. I highly recommend this company for your trek ... Continue Reading

What a wonderful experience !

I can't say enough good things about my trip with Inca Trail Reservations. First, the guides and porters were fantastic. The guides were always patient with us - hiking , explaining the history, practicing Spanish, etc. Gerson, Marco and Pepe were hilarious.
The porters are so hard working and the food was wonderful. We woke up each morning to ... Continue Reading

Amazing journey

Machu Picchu is breath taking for sure, but the journey there is even more amazing. Inca Trail Reservations does a great job making this trek fun and memorable. The guides exceed every expectation. The food is delicious, but I do wish there was more protein for muscle recovery.
The camps they chose are ideal. Be prepared to be challenged ... Continue Reading

Trek or treat

What a fantastic time. Gerson, Marco and Pepe were great - really knowledgeable, chill and thorough. We never felt rushed and it was super fun. The chef and food were amazing - definitely overate more than once. Maybe too much tea before bed time (night camping pees are the worst), but that was my own fault.
The trail itself ... Continue Reading

I thought the guides were very thorough in explaining the sites, as well as ... Continue Reading

Best adventure with the best group

The Inca Trail trek with our group of 17 was incredibly fun and an unforgettable adventure ! Physically grueling but so worth the trip to the view of Machu Picchu and to the top of Huaynapicchu ! In four days I had an unforgettable experience and made great friends I'll never forget.
The porters and guides made the trip ... Continue Reading

Wonderful time

I had an absolutely amazing four days. I started out the trek wishing it was day four so that I could already be at Machu Picchu, but after the first day I was hoping that the trek would last even longer.
From climbing various mountains to evening dinners to seeing double rainbows, our group had a wonderful time. The ... Continue Reading

Awesome experience

I'm so happy that I booked my Inca Trail trek through Inca Trail Reservations. Everything that was within their control was amazing. The group provided excellent pre-trip information that helped me to feel way more prepared to leave. The prior day orientation was also excellent and helped me with the last minute preparation, including where I could find the last ... Continue Reading

Sore feet but no defeat

I had an amazing trip, the sights are incredible and the tour is very well organized and run. You need the stamina and willpower to get through all four days but it is completely worth it. Acclimatization and a reasonable level of fitness is needed but it is an excellent trek, the food is great and the tour guides we ... Continue Reading

Overall the experience was once in a lifetime and absolutely rewarding. It was the most challenging and ... Continue Reading

4 day Inca Trail hike

Thanks to Marcos for a great tour ! He was a great motivation for the many times I struggled. The campsites were a welcome sight at the end of every day. The chef cooked amazing food every night. Our fellow hikers became quick a family, and we loved joking with the guides. "Just a few [minutes, miles, stairs]" is definitely ... Continue Reading
