The Back Door to Machu Picchu was an amazing trip. My wife and I took this trip in July and could not have asked for a better experience. Salvattore was our guide and he is excellent,is very knowledgeable about Peru, and goes the extra mile to ensure you have a wonderful experience. The ride down the mountain was beautiful and... More

We had a hard time finding a tour company that led true mt. bike rides. All of them seem to offer the same ride down the mountain road above Ollantaytambo, which we also did with another company and was fine, but not mt. biking at all. Gravity Peru offered a one day (10-2p) guided ride down the Inca Avalanche trail,... More

This is an excellent way to visit MP. Salvattore was our guide, and he went out of his way to make sure our trip was fantastic, and he tailored it to our group, the sign of a great guide. The biking is breathtaking, although it is all roads (as described on the website), but certainly worthy of our time. The... More

Right from the start of the trip everything was just so easy I didn't have to think about a thing! I did a three day trip and I really liked how organised it all was, trip was set out well it really felt like a holiday! Also liked how we did something different every 1/2 day kept thing exciting.

We stayed at an amazing eco lodge one night that we loved. They arranged all of our Machu Picchu day and we just sat back and relaxed. I would recommed to anyone to... More

We booked through the gravityperu.com website and interacted directly with the proprietor who was extremely helpful in setting up our trip. We chose the "Backdoor to Machu Picchu" trip and based much of our vacation around it. The website doesn't (or didn't) do the trip justice- our expectations were greatly exceeded. We were picked up from our hotel in Cusco... More

we booked online for the bike asalt day trip, because we saw following program on the website: "This incredibly scenic ride starts in the Andean highlands around Chinchero (3727m) and ends beside the Urubamba River in the Sacred Valley of the Incas" We did not start at Chinchero but at Moray, way deep down. We were supposed to be picked... More

Capped off a great trip to Peru. Well organised and varied in activities all to the spectacular backdrop of Andean mountains and Amazon jungle. The tour was well paced so we never felt exhausted and Will our guide had extensive knowledge of Peru and the immediate area to answer all of our questions. Highlights were having lunch on an Incan... More
