Chaski’s run

Our tour of Machu Pichu was an amazing experience. The first night was awe-inspiring. In a valley illuminated by the moon surrounded by touring peaks, we got an appreciation of what we could look forward to. Reaching the summit and then descending into the cloud forest gave spectacular vistas.
After so many days of losing and gaining elevation, spending ... Continue Reading

Rasmus adventure

First of all I thought it would be much harder for me, it is a hard trek especially the second day but I think if you are regular fit it wouldn't be any problem. The food was better than I was expecting and you will not go hungry. My guide was very friendly and really wanted us to learn things ... Continue Reading

Salkantay was sweet

The trek was a lot of fun, interesting and very comfortable overall. Juan Carlos was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable and took care of everyone.
I would recommend this trek to anyone interested in seeing Machu Picchu as long as they are in good shape. I would also recommend Inca Trail Reservations - as the best ... Continue Reading

We had got all important and necessary information from the ... Continue Reading

I wished I were a Llama

We had a really great time on our 4 day Inca Trail adventure organized by Inca Trail Reservations. The trail was gorgeous and Machu Picchu itself was a blast. It was however a really intensive workout. We hiked on average 7 hours a day but the beautiful scenic views compensated for every bit of sweat.
The whole trip was ... 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
