Soaked, cold, but happy!
Definitely an experience. I would recommend to anyone interested in a tough but rewarding adventure through the Peruvian Andes.
The tour was extremely well organized and the knowledge of the tour guides was evident from the start, having interspersed bouts of hiking with researched knowledge of the Inca civilisation. One warning is that I was woefully unprepared for the ... Continue Reading
Best Trail in my life
At first I would say thanks to all guides, cookers, porters and organisors. This was the best trip in my life.
The meeting in the office was very interesting and revalving. The first day was very exiting and a easy one to start an unforgettable adventure. The second day was hard but impressive and also a good training for ... Continue Reading
First of all - it was great!!! . Sure the money you have to pay sounds a lot, but it is worth it!!! The meals are so great and no matter how fast or slow you walk, the guides support you in every second.
For sure the second day is really hard, especially if you are not used to ... Continue Reading

At the evening I loved it to eat such great meals and sitting together with people from all over the world. Our guide ... Continue Reading
trailing in the rain
When we embarked on this experience I must admit we were not prepared for what followed.
We were pushed to our limits. We hiked in the rain. Slept in soaked sleeping bags. But we did it - we conquered the Inca Trail!. It was definitely an experience of a lifetime, we had a fantastic guide and made some ... Continue Reading

Inca Adventure from an Aussie Gal :)
I absolutely adored my time in Peru and especially the Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu. I love hiking and mountains so I knew I would enjoy it, but what was a real surprise to me was how much I loved learning about the Inca people and history involved.
The culture was amazing and the Inca ... Continue Reading
For the love of oxygen
Before starting the trail I was actually incredibly nervous because I had never been on a hike this long and because I had prepared very little.
My nerves were calmed immediately when I met my guides, Henry and Marco. They made me feel safe and also very excited for the hike. I still wasn't sure what to expect ... Continue Reading
An all round excellent time was had. The trip started with a punctual and comfortable bus pick up and high standards like this were maintained throughout .
The guides were very friendly, approachable and knowledgable about the history of the area. Food was of a very high quality and the campsites were excellent. The tents could easily ... Continue Reading
Elke stap van de weg
De gidsen zijn een essentiel element in elkaar houden van uw tour en de chef kok biedt en een uitstekende gastronomische ervaring van vrijwel niets .
En dan zijn er nog de portiers van wie boven menselijke krachten uithoudingsvermogen zijn niet te geloven . Er er is de coca bladeren en had ik al gezegd de alpaca's , ... Continue Reading
Big Dreams, Lazy Legs
Absolute must if you visit Peru!!. Paul and Juan are really awesome guys and I highly recommend joining them for this trek of a lifetime.
It was very challenging but definitely attainable regardless of your physical training or preparation. Machu Picchu is truly Inca Magic! . I have completed the Camino de Santiago in Spain and the ... Continue Reading
Machu Picchu on crocs!
I thoroughly enjoyed the hike, and especially with Inca Trail Reservations. The hike was by no means easy, but it was most certainly rewarding.
My guides, Paul and Juan, are amazingly knowledgeable so the hike was as educational as it was physical. It was mind blowing to learn how the Incas were so in touch with nature and ... Continue Reading
The inca trail was awesome! . Paul and Juan were great guides. They were super helpful and they taught us so much about the Andes environment and the inca history. It was great to hear from people that grew up in these mountains and valleys.
They were also very patient with those of us who were a ... Continue Reading
Move your lazy legs!
So glad I decided to hike the inca trail !!. What most people don't know about hiking the trail is you get the chance to visit and explore multiple ruins that can only be reached by hiking.
Easily the most incredible hike I've ever been on and Inca Trail Reservations were amazing guides. Possibly the biggest reason to ... Continue Reading
“Funny title for Paul”
Had no idea what I was getting into. Friend signed us up for a hike to Machu Picchu. I wondered why we didn't just take the train.
Well it turns out the inca trail itself is just as badass as the going to Machu Picchu itself. Our guide Paul was hilarious, the food and camp prep ... Continue Reading
