We took the 4d/3n tour and it was amazing! The trek is a bit hard - especially 2nd day as it is up hill - but overall it is amazing. All the views along the way are outstanding and when you reach Machu Picchu - WOW what a sight. No wonder why it's one of the wonders of the world.... More

Bamba were brilliant on our trip round Asia, so helpful and always very quick to reply to emails! Each journey to our next destination was organised without any issues - once or twice a bus was full but Bamba always offered an alternative solution so it was never a big problem. The tours were amazing, well organised and run with... More

I had an excellent experience with Bamba, who offered the best value trip that we could find. Taking part in the classic Inca Trail (May 2014) was a breathtaking experience that I will never forget. Admittedly the Inca Trail is an expensive trip, but Bamba offered it at the best price that we could find and I didn't feel as... More

My friend and I booked the 4 day Jungle Trek through STA before leaving for South America and we were excited for the trip. We were not disappointed. Our guide Rodrigo was fantastic, always happy, helpful and knowledgeable. A great range of activities to choose from, basic but nice, clean accommodation. The food on one of the nights was average...

I had an amazing time on the Salkantay Trek with Bamba Experience. They were extremely professional and it just made my experience that much better. The facilities that we had on the trek seemed so much better than the other companies which is definitely needed on the first night as it gets to -5 degrees at night. The tents and... More

I had an amazing time with Vincente on the jungle trek. Apart from the mountain biking, whitewater rafting and zip lining, the trek itself was incredible and Vince was really knowledgable about everything along the way, be in where cosmetic companies get their red lipstick colour from, or about coca and cocoa plants. All in all I would recommend this... More

Bamba was extremely accommodating and professional. Information was sent weeks ahead prior to our trek and any questions we asked were answered promptly. We had a group of 4 and was able to travel on a mini bus with only our group, other cheaper companies were fully loaded with passengers packed in tight. The biking equipment we had was much... More
