40 minutes

Our guide Lito kept saying it would be forty minutes along a flat way. It really meant 2 hours on a horrible incline... Needless to say it was the punch line for the trip. A great time was had by everyone. The staff and agency were amazing and very attentive.
I enjoyed every day and it was so wonderful ... Continue Reading

Overall, this was a great trip. It was very well organized and all of the staff were professional and courteous. The food was excellent, always having snacks, plenty of tea and great conversation. Nice touches like hot tea in the tent to wake us up certainly helped to put the finishing touches on the trip.
Really enjoyed everything and ... Continue Reading

Don’t look at the end of the way

This trip was a very special adventure and my first time that I took part at such a guided trekking tour.
Our guide was very very nice and he knew how to motivate when the way was very steep, he always said: "don't look at the end of the way, just keep on going and enjoy the beautiful view". ... Continue Reading

Thirty minutes for ten soles

The second day was the hardest because of the alltitude which stressed me more than the wandering up and down. All in all for an untrained hiker the trail was very hard to handle. I really enjoyed to be with our guide who was courage and had lots of information about the landscape and the culture.
The staff crew ... Continue Reading

Picturesque ALS ice bucket challenge

A buddy and I decided on this trek because the Inca Trail passes were sold out. That turned out to be a blessing in disguise because this was one of the best experiences in my life. Our guide Ramiro was wonderful, funny and thoughtful. We started the trek at Mollepata, with just a day pack. The horses carried our overnight ... Continue Reading

Salkantay trek 4d3n

We did the Salktantay Trek in August during the dry season and it was absolutely phenomenal. Despite tough uphill treks which will test your endurance and long downhill paths (with gravel and sand) in certain locations, the views and the entire experience was well worth it.
I hope by giving my testimony it will encourage future trekkers to go ... Continue Reading

Inca Trail

I heartily recommend the Inca Trail Reservations outfit your next trek. Our guide Gerson was fluent in English and very personable. His commentaries added color to every Inca site we visited. The porters did an amazing job in carrying our luggage and setting up our camp every night. A true highlight of the trip, in the communal dinner, we warmed ... Continue Reading

We did 1 day Inca Trail with Inca Trail Reservations. It was a great experience. We visited several Inca sites and our guide, Grover, was very helpful. The whole hike took about 6 hours and we arrived at Sun Gate around sun set. There were many stops along the way for pictures.
It is definitely a great option if ... Continue Reading

Inca trail 2 days

We visited Machu Picchu today with a wonderful tour guide Grover. The tour definitely exceeded my expectations. The scenery was mesmerizing and breathtaking. Even though it was only one day walk, at times felt a little challenging, especially walking up narrow steps in high altitudes.
I would suggest starting the tour as early as possible. Walking in a burning ... Continue Reading

Experiencia maravilhosa

Simplesmente uma viagem inesquecivel e altamente recomendavel para quem gosta de trilhas e montanhismo. Meu marido e eu fizemos o passeio de 5 dias e contamos com o conhecimento, ajuda e suporte do guia Ramiro. Sem duvida nenhuma tem que haver um pouco de preparo fisico porque as caminadas podem durar ate cerca de 12 km e tambem eu recomendaria ... Continue Reading

Amazing but tough !

Completing the trek is just an amazing experience but also it is challenging. Honestly, without the help and support of our guide, Ramiro, my wife and I could not have completed it. His personal attention to our needs made a big difference to have this experience the best.
Several items of my bucket list completed: jump into a ... Continue Reading

Esta experiencia fue realmente increíble, la verdad tenia un poco de miedo antes de partir porque siempre me dijeron que este trek era muy matado y duro pero luego de hacerlo me doy cuenta de que cada sacrificio valió la pena, realmente valió la pena.
Recomiendo este tour y por supuesto a Inca Trail Reservations quienes hicieron posible este ... Continue Reading

Fue la mejor experiencia que he tenido en mi vida, me siento muy bien ... Continue Reading
