Ruben was our tour guide and he was truly professional and was very accommodating to our pace and request. We bought our own tickets for going up to Machu Picchu a second time and he gave good suggestions on how to cover the site without repeating old tracks. We toured the ruins first and then hike to Intipunku on our... More

Alpaca came highly recommended by a friend of mine, and after going through the expedition, it is easy to see why. They were absolutely above and beyond in every way! Our guides, Lizandro and Amerigo, did everything they could to make sure everyone on our trip was having an excellent time and doing well on the trek. From giving a... More

I researched tour companies for several months before i finally decided on Alpaca. I had looked at several options, New York based and global adventure travel companies. The price of the tour, responsiveness and local ownership was what swayed me. Several times on the tour, I wondered what these other companies would offer for the extra money that Alpaca did...

After reading reviews on Alpaca Expiditions, it only seems right to book our tour with the best operator in Peru! Me and two friends decided to book our 4 day/3night inca trail to Machu Picchu on 1st March 2015. The day before our hike, we met everyone at their offices for a briefing. It was nice to get an idea... More

我们是在3月底进行的这次 4D/3N Inca Trail. 来之前半年就在研究穷游上的攻略qyer.com, 也同时参考了Tripadvior,最后定下了Alpaca Expeditions, 这是我们此次trekking最棒的选择。 首先要感谢的一定是我们的tour guide Jose, 他不仅负责,更是对他的工作充满了激情。每到一处印加古迹,都会给我们讲解关于印加文化的知识, 与此同时也展现了他惊人的知识面。无论我们问关于印加文化和秘鲁文化哪方面的问题,天文,地理,历史,还是植物,他都可以向我们细细解释。除此之外,他还给我们纠正了不少理解上的误区,比如印加人的祭祀文化是温和的,不是如前印加文化和玛雅文化中残暴的祭祀方法。印加是Quechua时代最尊贵的阶层,因此将国家称为印加帝国是不确切的。另外还有如何正确发音Machu Picchu等。 这一路上不但充分享受到了安第斯山脉的壮美,更是贴近了古印加人的灵魂和精神。 还有我们的大厨Roger和我们亲爱的porter们。他们都来自神圣山谷里的三个村庄。彼此间是同事也是朋友。大厨Roger一路变戏法一样的给我们做出了好多色香味俱全的大餐,而且还有蛋糕!!我们的Porter们一路上就像一个绿色军团,有组织且有效。Alpaca Expeditions还给他们的员工都配备了专业的户外衣服和装备,对于长年在Inca Trail负重工作这些装备太重要了,我们这些Trekkers看着也都很暖心。 Alpaca Expeditions给我们提供的装备也都是高品质。大到帐篷,睡袋,小到给背包用的防水袋,处处在细节中体现了Alpaca Expeditions对待从世界各地来到安第斯山脉徒步客的用心和善意。 很庆幸我们选择了Alpaca Expeditions。在出发前,走Inca Trail是为了去看Machu Picchu。而现在,关于machu picchu的回忆如此美好难忘,是因为我们和Alpaca Expeditions一起徒步了4D/3N的印加古道! It's really an amazing life experience! Thank you Alpaca Expeditions, thank you Jose, Roger and our lovely porter friends!! MUCHAS GRACIAS!!

My husband and I had the pleasure of being guided by Abel on our rather rainy trek to Machu Picchu via the Salkantay trail. He was very knowledgeable about history and archeology, helpful if we ever had any issues (I got cold from the rain a few times) and communicated really well (great English). We were the only two people... More

I did the trek to Machu Piccu with Alpaca Expeditions and cannot fault the experience. The food was incredible and the porters worked incredibly hard. I was anxious before the trek - I think there are a number of things that can affect your experience that you have no control over (the weather, the tour guide, the size of your... More

Two thumbs up for Alpaca Expeditions!!! For our 20th wedding anniversary, my wife and I wanted to bring our 4 daughters (14, 12, 10 & 5) to Machu Picchu. We researched different tour companies and landed on Alpaca Expeditions because they are locally owned and seemed to have a great deal of local experience / knowledge of the area. We... More

I and my friend booked the 4D/3N inca trail hiking tour with Alpaca Expedition on February. It was recommended by others who did the same tour before. Now after the big accomplishment with them, I have to pass the words to more followers that do it with Alpaca Expedition and it won't upset you. It was an incredible life time... More
