This one time in band camp …
Get acclimatized for the hike. It is a much easier hike at the higher elevation and much more enjoyable doing the Salkantay tour. The food is spectacular , from the chef in the make shift kitchen by the tents. The scenery is a must to see. So many different changes in landscapes throughout the hikes.
Lots to see through ... Continue Reading
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
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 - Salkantay.org as the best ... Continue Reading
A dream comes true
My first trip to South America and first time Peru. I always had the dream to visit Machu Picchu to see the sacred Inca city. We had booked our Inca Trail to Machu Picchu organized by Inca Trail Reservations. I didn't really know what to expect, I was just excited. 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

I had an amazing time with my 'familia'. Traveling the Inca Trail as a group was a great experience. It was great getting to know people from different places who wanted to share the same experience. The information from our guide Carlos was great, knowledge about the Inca life was very interesting throughout the hike and through Machu Picchu tour.

My favorite part of ... Continue Reading
What a nice trip
The food on the camping was really good. The views of the nature are amazing and it change every day. The guides are very supported and it keeps the spirit in the group.
I think it would be a nicer experience if the last night was in tents. It would have been a nice experience. It was my ... 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
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
