My guide was Edgarito Diaz Fernandez. He made the trip what It was. Extremely welcoming and excited to get started. The trek was enjoyable and Edgar would stop to tell us facts about the local area. It was 4 days I will cherish for the rest of my life. Thank you :)

My experience with Bamba has been a great journey through the inca trail. However, the price was well above competitors, even though the food and service was great. I haven't tried other agencies, so I don't know the difference. Also, despite the premium price Bamba expected me to hand out large tips for the carriers and cook which in my... More

I froze on nights 1 and 2 (the downside to having my own tent) and got very little sleep - take very warm clothes, but apart from that it was a great experience. Our guide was fantastic: knowledgeable and funny. The cooks were brilliant, always something hot for breakfast, proper lunches eaten mid trek, popcorn, biscuits and hot drinks for... More

My daughter and I finished our month of travel throughout South America with a Guided Traditional Inca Trail Trip. We had a relatively small group of 9 people on the trip and it was fantastic. The Porters did an amazing job of running ahead and setting up for us whether it was for an amazing sit- down lunch or a... More

Two weeks ago, a friend and I did the 5-day Salkantay Trek to Macchu Picchu in Peru arranged by Bamba Experience. Bamba is highly recommendable. We were a group of 5 guests. We were serviced by a guide, a cook, and a "horse driver", and they took care of everything -clean tents, high-standard-sleepingbags, and high-class food. Our guide, Pabel, was... More

I travelled South America for 4 months across Peru, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Uruguay and the people at Bamba booked all my transport. They are professional and make you feel like a friend they are helping out and truly understand what it's like to be a backpacker. Of course it is cheaper to book all your travel yourself when...

I highly do NOT recommend traveling with Bamba experience. Even though it might seem as a perfect solution for your solo travels, it is not. They say they are flexible, trustworthy and reliable, but the opposite is more true. Traveling is not made easier (as they say), the staff is highly unfriendly and impersonal, if you would like to make... More

We visited an elephant sanctuary which was ethically responsible and enjoyed an elephant ride and washing with them in the river.

Dear Oliver, Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor. We are happy you had a good experience with us and that you found that the elephant sanctuary was ethically responsible. However, we are no longer offering activities involving elephant rides or elephant trekking due to general concerns regarding the treatment and welfare of captive elephants in Southeast Asia. This is... More

I booked a 4 day/3 night trek on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu through Bamba Experience. The experience was incredible and exceeded all of my expectations. The guide, Pavel, was truly amazing. If you book this trip, ask if you can have Pavel as your guide!
