Machu Picchu trip July 14 2014

Beyond my expectations!

This was, by far, my best trek ever. Manuel Paco is an experienced and very professional guide who continued to help me face daunting physical challenges, hour after hour.
I would not recommend this trip for the faint of heart as it will push you harder than any personal trainer, but it is good for the mind and ... Continue Reading

Inca trail experience

This has been an incredible experience. Thanks to Manuel Paco I now have a better understanding of the Inca culture. The hike was difficult especially the second day mostly because I was sick but even so very enjoyable. My only complaint has to do with cleanliness. The toilets are filthy. There is no reason to subject tourists from all over ... Continue Reading

A historic adventure

The trek to Machu Picchu was an incredible adventure, my guide Manuel was extremely helpful the whole trip. Be aware that this trek is at very high elevation and you should have an idea about how well you deal with low oxygen levels. As a fit person I had altitude sickness and wasn't the only one in my small group. ... Continue Reading

Inca Trail

This was an absolutely amazing experience despite my being utterly unprepared.
The Inca Trail is breathtaking in a completely different way every day of the trek, and I don't mean because there is so little oxygen. I can't think of another trail which could combine such beautiful topography, diverse fauna, and so much of a culture's history at once. ... Continue Reading

Carlos: King of the mountain, contributed greatly to this experience. He ... Continue Reading

Inca Trail June 2014

The experience we had with Inca Trail Reservations was truly amazing.
