Gorgeous in all aspects
In my opinion, this was an amazing trip and an extremely great deal. The guides were very personable, knowledgeable and encouraging -- in every possible way. I would definitely recommend this trip to friends and family of all ages -- and all interests, whatever they may be.
Also, even though you're camping out, the meals were absolutely delicious -- ... Continue Reading
Unbelievable experience. So good, it was my second time on the Inca Trail and visiting Machu Picchu. Gerson, our guide, knows so much about the Incas, each site, and Machu Picchu itself. Our porters were amazing, set up all our tents, gave us hot tea and clean water each morning, and fed us the most incredible food.
This is ... Continue Reading

The porters and cooks were also incredible. The food was far ... Continue Reading

Gerson for president
The four day hike to Machu Picchu exceeded my expectations and a traveler to the area would be doing themselves a disservice to visit the site without the hike. The company took great care of us: the food was amazing, the porters congenial and strong, and the guide knowledgeable and easy to get along with.
The best experience was ... Continue Reading
It was an unbelievable trip that exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend this. I took the Inca Trail on September 1st and had great weather for most of the trip. The meals were unbelievable and the sights were unforgettable.
You would think after seeing amazing sights and ruins throughout the 4 day hike, that Machu Picchu would be ... Continue Reading
Salkantay Trek August 2014
If you're looking for an adventure and to sharpen your buns into steel, this is the trip to take. This trip is not for the fainthearted or in mere physical shape. Anyone considering the Salkantay trek should be healthy, in decent shape and can tolerate days without bathing/showering.
Some lessons learned: pack light and exchange money prior to going ... Continue Reading
Authentic, intimate adventure !

I had a blast on this trip! The hiking was fantastic and the sights were unbelievable.
The first day was short but fun, and the optional hike up to the lake was completely worth it. The second day was one of the most challenging, but rewarding, days of my life. Reaching 4600 m at the pass was well worth ... Continue Reading
Once in a lifetime trip

Beyond the people, the actual trek itself was something that can't be captured with words or photos. Without a ... Continue Reading
The Four Musketeers
Our trip on the Salkantay trek far exceeded my expectations. The trek was challenging but so rewarding due to Lito, a passionate, funny and smart guide; our wonderful cooks Simone and Simon; and a great group of people who were driven to finish but also enjoy the great scenery along the trek.
I loved the variety of each day ... Continue Reading
Worth the pain
As I write this, my legs and feet barely move but I don't need any time for reflection to know that the experience has been well worth the physical demands. Truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and an amazing opportunity to shut off the world, challenge yourself physically (and mentally!), and embrace new culture and history.
The trek was very scenic ... Continue Reading
Great challenge and experience for an outdoor adventure amateur
I can't say enough positive things about my experience with Salkantay.org - Inca Trail Reservations, the Salkantay trail, and our guide, Lito. The trail itself is incredible, with breathtaking scenery from snow capped mountains to jungles. The tour itself was exceptionally well run. Our guide was well informed, spoke great English, and went above and beyond to make sure we ... Continue Reading
We’ll make it if He carries us
It was absolutely amazing. If you are looking for a difficult trek, look elsewhere.
They carry your stuff and do almost everything you could want them to do. I'm 20 and backpack so it was quite easy, but for my dad who is in great shape for a 60-year-old, the trip was difficult due to the high altitude.

O choque de realidade comecou quando coloque a mochila nas costas e atravessei a ponte sobre o Rio Urubamba ... a caminhada do primeiro dia foi leve, porem, chegar ao acampamento e so encontar uma torneira para todo o grupo foi meio ...
