The trip was absolutely incredible. I didn't know what to expect at first but Edson and Hilton helped the whole time. While it was one of the most challenging physical activities I've ever experienced, it was by far the most enjoyable. The porters were incredible, I've gained so much respect and admiration for what they do. The chefs also were ... Continue Reading
The time I died
When I started the trip to Machu Picchu I thought that I was a strong man. I was not. After the first day I realized that I was in over my head. Nothing was right, but I made it.
The second day would be the day that I died, or would have if it was not for Edson and ... Continue Reading

Day 1 was not too bad but was beautiful. Day 2 was very tough but reached heights I never thought I could. Day 3 was the longest and challenging as well but very scenic. We visited 4 Inca sights. Day 4 ... Continue Reading

Day 2 - Edson and Hilton were great and continued to inform me I can get passed the difficult 2nd day.
Day 3 - This day was very long and strenuous, but they really helped break ... Continue Reading
Inca Trail adventure
The first day started a bit rough because I hadn't slept nearly enough even though Eddy told me I should. We arrived at the trail and began our march. I had no idea what I was in for. Somehow I made my way through the first day and thought that I had survived the first trial. The second day began ... Continue Reading
Inca Trail hike
My overall experience hiking the Inca Trail was excellent! The views were spectacular all along the trail. The Andean Mountain range is incredibly diverse. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the five different microclimates encountered along the trail; we stopped to hear about each microclimate's fauna and flora.
The food along the hike was delicious. We ... Continue Reading
The guided tour of Machu Picchu was wonderful. The guide, Jonathan Flores, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly , took the time to explain in detail the various features of the site, and gave us the time to explore and take pictures on our own.
I really appreciated that he went over the different theories about why Machu Picchu may ... Continue Reading
Wow, what an adventure !! Once you get started with the hike, you forget about everything else and just concentrate on the beautiful scenery that surrounds you.

Walking the Inca Wall
I walked the Inca Trail (aka. the Inca Wall) with Jonathan and Pepe as guides in July 2014. We had the best trip! The treks were both up-hill, down-hill and Inca flat. The guides were very funny and had a large knowledge about the nature, the trail and the history of the whole trail.
When we got to Machu ... Continue Reading

I went on the Inca Trail in the winter 2014 and it was an amazing trip. Four days of hiking and three nights at different campsites. All the campsites had amazing views, but not always amazing sanitary facilities :)
For the trail I booked a porter, which helped me to enjoy the trip in a good way. In total ... Continue Reading
Es war das erste Mal, dass ich eine Wanderung über fünf Tage gemacht habe und es war wunderbar! Ich war ein wenig besorgt, dass ich nicht mit der Gruppe mithalten könnte aber es hat sich herausgestellt, dass das kein Problem war, denn es war immer ein Tour-Guide am Anfang und am Ende der Gruppe.
Die Tour-Guides waren sehr offen ... Continue Reading

Five days trekking through glaciers to rainforests.
Incas paved the paths we followed.
Rest was wanted by some.. Unlucky.
Every muscle in the legs got a work out.
Steep inclines and slippery downhill slopes.
Native food to fill the bellies.
A taste of culture and history was sampled.
Everyone is looking forward to ... Continue Reading
The trip in general was awesome. The people were great and the guides were really fun. The days were really fun and went by really fast. It was weird that we had to pay for the bus on the way back from the hot springs. I feel like it could have been much easier and smoother if we didn't have ... Continue Reading
