Sing your way to the top

A great adventure with a wonderful group of people. We became a walking family where we laughed, danced, sang and shared stories throughout the entire trek. I loved playing football as well as completing our challenge of standing in the very cold river for the longest. Let's just say that it was a freezing challenge.
The food was so ... Continue Reading

Calves, thighs and belly workout

A childhood dream finally came true ! We signed up for the four day trek but we did not just get the trek, what we got as a bonus was great new friends and many laughing bouts. My stomach actually got a workout from so much laughing, the effects of which were cancelled out due to the excellent and abundant ... Continue Reading

Sweet memories

This is an amazing tour, which make you feel dead and excited at the same time. While after the 4 days, what will keep in your mind is the beautiful sites during the 4 days, the existence when you see the Machu Picchu, the happiness after you made effort to make it.
While all of this cannot happen ... Continue Reading

My first and best hiking

I reserved my Inca Trail on the Internet and I did not know any information about this tourist agency. When I arrived Cusco, I really doubted the quality of this trip. However, as the hiking started, it really surprised me.
Everything is well organized and hiking guides are really nice. Even the hiking is really tough, especially on the ... Continue Reading

Thank you very much I will recommend Inca Trail Reservations, I enjoyed the booking process, they filled all my needs and keep in constant communication.
The introduction was informative and all our ... Continue Reading

Best hiking experiences ever

Four days hiking, unlimited adventures, perfect guide and a group of new friends. The morning tea after waking up, classic Peru food, pizza, even birthday cake, the food is perfect. The guide is professional, full of passion and considerate. They almost know everything, the historical knowledge of Incas, the animals and the plants, the interesting story in the Inca Trial. ...

Well staffed and planned adventure

This was my first trip to Peru and was recommended this travel service. Being "slightly" high maintenance, my expectation for being irritated or disappointed was high. Our guides (Carlos and Marcos) were phenomenal at ensuring my spoiled needs were met above expectation. The porters were friendly, accommodating, and well treated.
We intend to come back next year and will ... Continue Reading

Well chosen

These guys were great, took phenomenal care of us from day one. Extremely professional and patient as well as accurate with their information. When it would be easier to rush and prod, they smile and encourage. I had a knee problem unexpectedly and they were supportive and helpful beyond what would be considered expected or reasonable.
I can safely ... Continue Reading

Champ trip

When we had our first meal, we thought it'd be simple ham and cheese sandwich but no, it was a delicious meal. Champ food. When we told our guides we were deaf, they didn't ignore us. Instead, they made every effort to write down us information and checked on us if we were ok. Champ guides.
The trail was ... Continue Reading

Stairs !

When my wife and I were planning our trip to Peru we had a hard time picking between the train to Machu Picchu and a trek. We finally decided to trek it; picking a tour company was much harder. After a lot of research we decided to go with Inca Trail Reservations and we couldn't be happier.
Our guides ... Continue Reading

Miracle weather in the rainy season

Amazing 4 day trip with amazing guides and an amazing group. We were so lucky with the weather even though it was during the rainy season. One quick thing though, prepare extra batteries because it is not given that you can recharge phones and cameras on the way... and get clothes that dry easily !
When I come again, ... Continue Reading

Not for the faint of heart

I was pretty worried about doing the Inca Trail because I felt that I was pretty unfit but the guides and porters were great and definitely made the experience better than I had anticipated. It was challenging, but at the same time luxurious.
The food was amazing. Each meal that was provided was so filling and delicious. And while ... Continue Reading
