Incredible experience. We went for our honeymoon and could not recommend enough. It is the perfect balance of active exploration and luxurious relaxation. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to have one of a kind hiking experiences and then indulge in awesome cuisine, drinks, and spa.

My husband and I visited Explora Sacred Valley a couple weeks ago, and this was seriously our dream vacation. From the moment we pulled up to the driveway, we felt at home. The warmth and caring nature of every staff member at Explora is really what defined our stay - they genuinely care that you get exactly the trip you're hoping for, experience Peruvian culture, and they also make every effort to know you as an individual. Every little touch was so thoughtfully attended to, for example fresh juices and snacks and cheese set up by the driver at the end of a long hike, or our guide learning from our previous day's guide that my husband's knee was hurting, so specially packing ice for him. Every evening meeting with our guide was so thorough, helping us feel confident and excited for our next day's adventure. It was incredible to be able to pick whichever experience we wanted - from biking to Inca ruins to any all-day hike we preferred, and Explora would do the rest.

The guides are phenomenal - so funny, knowledgeable, and passionate about nature, culture, and history. We learned they go through 3 months of rigorous training, and it shows. We felt like friends with all of them by the end.

The hotel property is also unbelievably beautiful - the yoga room, restaurant with spectacular views, and the coziness of the rooms. I wish we could have stayed another week there!! We love Explora and can't wait to visit the other locations.

My husband and I spent several nights here as part of our honeymoon and we can't recommend it enough! Everything was seamless, from the airport pickup to scheduling hikes and a spa day. The food was incredible - even the lunches they pack for your hike were delicious! The staff was so accommodating and thoughtful, our guide during every hike was also so informative and fun to hang out with. The setting is beautiful and makes for some really fun exploring. We can't wait to visit other Exploras!

Explora curated the perfect trip for us. Once you get on-site everything is taken care of for you. The food is delicious. The people are friendly and go above and beyond to make your trip perfect. The explorations are educational. We would never have learned as much as we did about the history and culture of the Sacred Valley if we had tried to do this on our own.

Full disclosure: this was our fourth visit to an Explora property, and we are obviously big fans of the model. Having said that, our stay at Explora Valle Sagrado was simply the best hospitality experience we've ever had. We stayed for six nights with the goal of acclimating for the four-day Inca Trail Trek to Machu Picchu, while visiting the Valle Sagrado at a relaxed pace. We worked with the guides to walk at a higher altitude each day, with each hike including one or more cultural or archeological sites. The food is out of this world - thoughtfully curated by Virgilio Martinez and executed by Santiago, the talented chef, the menu is a very important part of the adventure. The staff are professional and friendly. The bartenders are loads of fun. The guides are brilliant. We were very, very well cared for.
