We went on the 5-day Salkantay Trek and couldn’t have asked for a better time! We originally were most excited to see Machu Picchu, but the beauty of the area, the friendliness of the people, and the quality of our guide, cook, and horseman were as good if not better than seeing the city of MacchuPicchu itself.

The food was a trip highlight, and we were always so impressed with the quality (and amount!) of the food we got along the way. We got to try a lot of local cuisine like alpaca and various kinds of soups and of course coca tea kept us warm the whole time.

The route was great and there weren’t too many people along the way. Our guide made sure we were always warm and could practically predict the weather and gave us good tips about what to wear. The whole trip was planned seamlessly. We love Peru and hope to come back soon!!
