Did this towards the end of March with Peru Treks; two females in early twenties, always felt safe and comfortable. Excellent company - incredible food service and staff, and great guides. Did it with a friend and we had a full group of 16 in total from all over the US as well as the UK. Tour guides really foster... More

Had perfect 4 days with our guide Percy Gonza Manrique and our cook victoriano. Percy knows how to switch between being a guide (give useful informations (and he knows a lot), care for the group members, organize stuff) and being part of the group (making jokes, teaching Spanish and quechua, answering not tour related questions). If you have the chance... More

We are 60 years old and did the Inca Trail with Alpaca Expedition in January. Although difficult at times, the hike is worth it. We were so impressed with this tour company. I guess they are Number 1 on Tripadvisor for a good reason. The service, food, guides, tents etc are top notch. I don't know why you would look... More

We've recently returned from our 4days on the Inca Trail with Toucan Travel - would highly recommend them as a company, but whoever you book with, the Trail is BRILLIANT! Beautiful, challenging (in a good way!), life-giving - will remember it forever :) Be prepared for some breathless up-hills whatever your fitness - the altitude is real - and some... More

First of all, I'm NOT a hiker, nor that I'm calling myself a hiker after this trip. However, the Inca Trail has its unique beauty that no matter how much anyone loves or (dislikes) the hike, it will be very worth it at the end. I took my pace very slowly, because I had a hard time breathing due to... More

Our group did the trek with G Adventures. We were well looked after from the time we landed in Lima to the time we departed from Cusco. Two of our group did the Cusco option which involved 3 night stay in Cusco and going by train to Aguas Calientes. The rest hiked it. The second day is very tough. The... More

I booked this four day trip through gadventures as part of a wider tour of the Amazon and The Galápagos Islands. The tour started in Lima before flying up Cuzco where we met Elias and Caesar our tour guides, and the rest of the group. After a day of acclimatisation and a long bus ride to the starting point of... More

This was one of my life memories. So beautiful all the way. Limits to the number of people on the trail which was good. Watch out for the tiny orchids along the way, and remember to take in those mental snapshots as you go along.

We completed the 4D/3N trek but it was the most challenging task I have ever attempted. I am 65 and in pretty good shape but I was not prepared for the toll oxygen deprivation can take on a body. I was ready to quit at lunch on the first day – (the easy day!). But my companion and our excellent... More
