The trek was very difficult, but very rewarding! The summit of Mt. Salkantay was absolutely breathtaking. It brought tears to our eyes. Our cook, porter, and guide Marcos were all great. Marcos pointed out many things from flora, to animals and history. They were very professional and the food was delicious.
We were amazed with all the beauty that ... Continue Reading
Minha experiencia no Caminho Inca
O caminho foi uma experiência unica! Com 61 anos venci obstáculos, fiz amigos e fui bem sucedida! Venci os medos e me sinto vitoriosa! A confiança e o apoio da equipe na trilha foi importante, com palavras de apoio: vamos lá, estamos perto, coragem, falta pouco!
Chegada no acampamento, o acordar de manhā, com um chá quente foi muito ... Continue Reading
Bom, o que dizer da minha experiência na Trilha Inca? a paisagem é linda! Machu Picchu é tão bela que dói. eu poderia falar também que fiquei três dias sem banho sem reclamar, que o segundo dia é pesado, que os porteadores são uns queridos e trabalham muito bem, que a comida é sensacional, que o chá para despertar é ...

The Inca Trail trek and Machu Picchu was a really great experience. We did not really know what to expect, since we are not used to trek. But there were no problems at all, day 1 was a good start.
Day 2 was quite hard, but the view from the top was worth it. We had good time to ... Continue Reading
Inca Trail 4 days / 3 nights
Going to the Inca Trail at the end of my 3 week backpack vacation I was afraid that the long trek would be too hard but it has been the best experience of my time in Peru and Bolivia.
It gave me my energy back thanks to the amazing nature, my co-walkers and not the least the friendly, good ... Continue Reading
The amazing Inka Trail trek was very very good ! The guide was really overbearing and took good care of me while I was sick. I didn't feel unsafe at any point. The food was really good and the cook made and amazing cake for Klaus, in that little kitchen. How he did it is a mystery to me.

Inca Trail Reservations
The Inca Trail trek was very good! I was impressed by the food (amazed by what they can do in such a small kitchen). The guide was very good - told some good stories about the Incas and was very patient with us. The trek was very beautiful and challenging in a good way!
The only negative thing ... Continue Reading
Trip of a lifetime
The hike to Machu Picchu was no easy walk but there was lots of encouragement. The guides were always positive and helpful looking after all of us in the group, of course the views are incredible! Our food was very very good, well balanced meals that our cooks worked very hard to prepare. Vegetarian and Gluten Free is no problem ... Continue Reading
We booked this trip as a family vacation with our kids and grandchildren, ages 11 and 14. It was a great adventure and learning experience for all involved. After booking we received all the information we needed in great detail, and our questions were answered via email very quickly.
The guides for our trip (Victor and Marco) were superb. ... Continue Reading

Machu Picchu was a very cool experience. And the people were very cool. I got a little sick at first but I got better after a couple of days.
Since I was little weak, I got to be a cowboy for the day and ride up to the top of the mountain, it was very fun.
I then ... Continue Reading
The trip was great. The hiking was a challenge, but not too hard. Mostly the speed was fast, but not too fast. The group stayed mostly together. And when it was necessary they stopped and waited for the others. But we have not to wait for a long time. Especially on the second day it was good to do the ... Continue Reading
This is a challenging hike but has a variety of views and scenery. The rocky peaks and Mt. Salkantay are amazing - my poor little camera was less than adequate. Our guide and staff worked very hard to make it a successful trek for everyone. The wake up tea each morning was wonderful.
I had a great time and ... Continue Reading
I booked the trip with Salkantay.org. I did not know what to expect. Before the trip I got a short information about the trip.
The next day the trip started at 6.30 am. A reasonable time for me. We went to a little town almost at our starting. The breakfast was good. Afterwards we started the hike. This was ... Continue Reading
Salkantay 5 day trail
Our family hiked this trial in August 2014. In a word: Awesome. We arrived in Cusco and was thoroughly briefed on what we were to bring and also what we should expect.
One very important thing to remember is layers of clothing is a must have, as the temperatures vary from cold to hot. Rain gear can be used ... Continue Reading
