Sleeping in tents was new for me, but ... Continue Reading

Great tour and unbelievably good food

With Americo as a guide and Damian as a cook we definitely had the best tour ! The food was unbelievable and Americo a great guide. We preferred explanations in Spanish and so he explained everything twice in Spanish and in English !
The itinerary was really good, just one improvement (in my opinion) would be to walk to ... Continue Reading

Sublime experience from the beginning till the end with a great group and even better guide (Victor) ! We really looked forward to this trek and experiencing one of the 7 wonders - and were not disappointed.
The weather was all from hot sunshine to cold rain which just made the trek even better and more adventurous. A big ... Continue Reading

Inka Trail for the win

Such a great experience ! I would recommend everyone to walk the Inca Trail before visiting Machu Picchu. Beautiful views, though trekking, great Peru history, a lot of rain and much fun ! I had not expected the trail to be this hard, and I cannot describe how happy I am for my squat-work out before going to Peru.

One of the 7 Wonders of the World – check

The scenery was beautiful; the ruins incredible; the company so much fun; and the ... Continue Reading

Ending my backpacking adventure on a high !

After travelling the world for the past five months, I decided to finish my adventure on a high (literally) the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu before heading home to London. I have a little bit of experience with hiking but this was my first time hiking at altitude and over a period of days rather than hours. Victor, our tour ... Continue Reading

Very much worth it

Despite some rainy, cold moments, the trek was very much worth it. Make sure you're in good shape for the 4-day trek because there will be some pretty harsh segments. Luckily there's plenty of coca tea available during the eating moments to ease the pain of the altitude-sick.
Unexpectedly, but happily we had some of the best food we ... Continue Reading

Inca Trail

What an awesome trek ! Our guide was so helpful and kept us going even in the most difficult parts. Also a special thanks to all our porters... without them, this trek would not be possible. All my respect for them.
The first day was relatively easy, with some uphill, flat and downhill parts. Also saw some beautiful ... Continue Reading

Surreal

Viver esses quatro dias foi mais que uma aventura, foi como estar mais perto de Deus, por meio da mãe natureza. Ao terminar só consigo pensar em uma coisa: proporcionar esta experiência fantástica aos filhos que ainda terei. Chegar a Machu Picchu após tanto esforço é como chegar ao paraíso, o paraíso na Terra.
Além disso, toda a estrutura ... Continue Reading

Trilha surpresa

Comecei a trilha com a confiança de que a natureza somente me surpreenderia, pois logo no primeiro dia chegamos ao ponto onde almoçariamos e me deparei com não só uma comida excelente em meio à selva mas um serviço sem igual, muitos restaurantes no Brasil não só tem a falta do serviço como da culinaria excelente.
Deixo aqui minhas ... Continue Reading

The Inca Trail trek was a great experience, stunning views, guides were knowledgeable. The whole experience was great, enjoyed all the beautiful Peru scenery.

An excellent and challanging experience

Such a fantastic experience and I would definitely recommend it to those that love hiking in the mountains and learning about different cultures. Our guides were very educated in Incan history and able to answer all our questions, the tents were set up and ready to go when we got there and there was plenty of good food and company. ...

Run Forrest run

The strength of the porters shocked me at first on the first day of the trail. I was amazed to see these strong men running down the beautiful paths of the mountains. Thank goodness the weather was perfect for four days or I would have felt even worse for them. We found out along the way that many of the ... Continue Reading

Once in a life time … Yep only once :)

This is one of the most difficult and one of the most rewarding things that I have ever done. The trip was amazing but not for the faint of heart. Grueling trails with lots of physical and mental challenges. Make sure that you are in good aerobic condition and are used to hiking. Day two is a killer where we ... Continue Reading

My Machu Picchu walk in the park

My walk in the park to Machu Picchu I found very invigorating. You could push yourself as hard as you wanted or just follow along with the crowd because there was quite a varying array of people from all over the globe with different degrees of fitness. I got to meet a lot of nice people of varying nationalities and ... Continue Reading
