I have willing to come to Machu Picchu for the past 10 years and finally this dream became reality ! I was very impressed with the organization of the tour, the food and everything that was arranged to please us. Cusco and Aguas Calientes are very neat and interesting towns with a lot to see.
Our guide was Carlos ... Continue Reading
No more uphill !
I had a really truly wonderful time on the Inca Trail finishing in Machu Picchu, Cuzco, Peru. I found walking uphill on millions, millions and millions of steps so hard, but the beautiful and spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, vegetation and mountains meant that every single second was worth it in the end !
It was a shame ... Continue Reading
Had an amazing time on the Inca Trail. The group was fun (and nice and small) and our guide, Lizandro, was great value and provided lots of jokes. The food was incredible and the porters worked incredibly hard for our benefit. I really enjoyed the route and the challenge provided by the hills, especially on the second day.
The ... Continue Reading
Finally its over
I had a great time. Day two was the hardest. Maybe some more bonding like playing cards would have been good. Lizandro was really funny and helpful. The walking gets easier after a bit and the food really is fantastic. The early mornings were fine because we got to bed quite early and had a very relaxing time.
It ... Continue Reading
What a fabulous trip !
We had the best time ! Our guide Lisandro was excellent, the porters and chef gave unbelievable service and meals, and all of the equipment was in excellent condition. The trek is difficult but extremely rewarding, and made easier by the amazing service provided by the company.
They brought us hot water to wash with (awesome after a tough ... Continue Reading
My friend Amber and I recently completed the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu with Inca Trail Reservations. We had a really great time on our 4 day, 3 night hike... despite all the rain ! I can't decide which aspect of the trek was better... the unbelievable sights or the amazing meals provided by the Inca Trail Reservations chef and ... Continue Reading
The Inca Trail was amazing. The four days flew by... even with waking up so early every morning. The sights are breathtaking. Also, one of the best parts has to be the food. The things that the chef can cook in the middle of a trail are mind blowing.
The past four days have been so great and I ... Continue Reading
Es war an einem Ostermontag
Unser Inkatrail startete am Abend mit einer Besprechung in Cusco. Unser Guide "Jesus" erzählte uns alles Wissenswerte über die folgenden 2 Tage. Erfreulich fūr uns: Wir hatten "Jesus" fūr uns alleine..
Wir starteten am Morgen mit dem Bus ins Urbanatal, wo es pūnktlich mit dem Panoramazug zu km 104 ging. Der Ausstieg war schon grandios und versprach viel fūr ... Continue Reading
Just do it
It was a great experience. The beginning of the tour i.e. to get to km 104 with the Vistadome train really early in the morning was fantastic. I really liked the train as such with those panorama windows and excellent service. The walk was tiring but really worthwhile, with all those gorgeous views and places.
At the end the ... Continue Reading
Traveling with the Adams family
Getting up at 5:00 am (which usually is way too early for me) was totally worth it for this trip. Overall the trip was definitely memorable for me and my family (The Adams family). Some of my personal highlights today were the small waterfalls, the special flowers and the beautiful butterflies we saw during our hike. But also the amazing ... Continue Reading
I cannot find a funny title
Well, even if the trip started really early in the morning, it turned out to be worth it. The briefing the night before the trip helped us to prepare for the trip and we got an idea of what we have to expect from the next two days.
The bus and train ride were well organized and the service ... Continue Reading

Areas where the team could improve include accommodations and meals. ... Continue Reading
Cake for breakfast
My husband and I very much enjoyed our adventure. The first two days were particularly memorable... including the trek to the summit of Salkantay. The experience and topography were truly unique, nothing I have ever seen in my many travels.
Victor and Ronnie were great guides, knowledgeable of the region and Andean culture. They were also very supportive and ... Continue Reading
