What an amazing trail to hike! Great workout to dead woman pass. High altitude 13, 800 feet give or take. i packed 15 to 16 kg on me as i was on a solo back packing trip. Others had less from 10 to 13kg. Portors carried the tents, food and pots. Bring a warm sleeping bag. I had a 35/50... More

We took the 2 day / 1 night trek; it was incredible. The first part of the trek is very steep, but rewarding; the ruins are an incredible experience. The view from the Sun Gate down into Machu Picchu itself is spectacular. Note about footwear - the trail is steep and mostly consists of large granite (?) pebbles; I wore... More

We were so looking forward to this trek for so long. Make sure you book your trek at least 6 months in advance to ensure you get your permits, and make sure you book your trek through Uncover Latin America, they were brilliant. For those planning on doing this trek here´s some advice. Bring a 1.5 litre water bottle with... More

We and our party of four (two couples) did the 4 day Classic Inca Trail hike. We chose Peru Treks partly because of their fabulous reviews and partly because of their reputation to take care of their porters. We went in May 2017 and we could not have had any better weather. The weather was perfect. Cool / slightly chilly... More

I did the 4-Day trek with SAM Travel and their guide Elio in early May and the experience was wonderful (separate review in their page)! As a regular hiker/trekker, this trek is not super tough for me. However, it does require you to be physically fit as you have to hike in high altitude area for 6-10 hours every day,... More

I think a lot has been said about the trail - what surprised me was the ruins and sights along the way. I also don't believe it is as difficult as most seem to think. It is hard but nothing that you cannot do.

I did a 4d/3n inca trail hike to machu pichu. I went to Peru by myself but joined a group of about 15 people on this hike. All amazing people, and I had a great time on the hike. The weather in December can be a bit tricky. However we were really lucky with the weather. Except for one day... More

We were really lucky, everything added up to being the trek of a lifetime. The company we booked with Uncover Latin America were outstanding, we got almost perfect weather, a little light rain on Day 3 but that is to be expected and the trek itself, out of this world. We had a really good mix of people on our... More

We had an absolutely amazing experience with Quechuas Expeditions April 30-May 3rd (longer review posted on their page). The scenery was beautiful, even when you're out of breath and exhausted, we were always motivated to keep going. Our small group was a perfect experience and we never felt part of the crowds I've read on other reviews. Our guide Edwin... More
