Uno battles on the Salkantay

Had an amazing time on the Salkantay trek with Victor and the other folks in my tour group. He has been a fantastic guide. The hike itself was relatively difficult but the views made it all worth while. We hiked all the way up to 4600 meters and back down to the more temperate areas of Challway and Santa Teresa. ...

Desde el principio fue una mezcla de ansiedad y anticipación por lo nuevo y lo desconocido, pero al mismo tiempo una alegría por poder celebrar este viaje con mi esposa Mary, ya que sabia que ella había esperado por 30 años para realizar este viaje, ya que desde antes que nos conociéramos era uno de sus sueños a realizar.

Inca Trail

The trip was great. The food was fantastic and far better than I could have imagined. The guide (Marco) was knowledgeable and great at answering questions.
The trail was difficult, but manageable. We hired an extra porter to carry our stuff, and I would fully recommend that others do the same. The porters were incredible. They could carry ... Continue Reading

Camino Inca :)

Quando idealizei visitar Cusco, Machu Picchu minha maior motivaçao foi voltar aonde a minha historia começou, falo desta forma, pois meus pais, Uruguayos de Montevideo começaram a namorar neste lugar, depois de uma viagem quando ainda eram estudantes.

Inca Trail Reservations

Juan Carlos our guide was a wonderful guide. The trip was wonderful too and all the porters and cooking and other guides were caring and careful of our needs. Machu Picchu was all I expected, and well worth the effort of the walk.
I found the organization of the trail well done as I believe there is 500 people ... Continue Reading

One step at a time

We were well looked after. Didn't know what to expect and was quite apprehensive. Would I be fit enough to do this at 49 years old? Needn't have worried. Guides were great - they knew when I needed a rest and I never felt hurried. Had loads of time to enjoy the spectacular views and explore Inca ruins on route. ... Continue Reading

Great experience

It was an exhausting, but fun experience. The first day started out alright, just a good way to start a trip like that, because it was not too exhausting and there were not too many uphill parts.
The second day was by far the hardest, but afterwards everyone was glad to finally get lunch and some rest from going ... Continue Reading
