Our experience from beginning to end was nothing short of excellent with Alpaca. My BF and I did the 4D/3N Inca Trail Expedition at the beginning of May 2015. Our guide was Juan Carlos and we were fortunate enough to have two other great trekkers in our group. Since the very beginning when we started to do the research Alpaca... More

We did the Inca trail with Alpaca Expeditions early May 2015 and it was great. We are in our late 20s-early 30s and in relatively good shape. We got to Peru about 5 days early and acclimated and had no significant trouble with the altitude. I took diamox 150 mg twice a day which helped (only need to take it... More

By far Alpaca tours exceeded all if our expectations! This amazing experience led us through panoramic mountain vistas, dramatic waterfalls, to the ruins at Wiñay Wayna overlooking the raging Urubamba River. We enjoyed a delicious four course hot lunch in a tent prepared by a chef! After lunch our trek led us to the 'Sun gate' (Intipunku), the important gateway... More

We loved every minute of our Inca Trail hike with Alpaca Expeditions! Yes, day two was difficult at times but so rewarding. We loved arriving at Machu Picchu but the best part was the journey there. The beauty and the majesty of the mountains is impossible to capture in photos. I will never forget those four days! A few tips:... More

I have done many treks on 6 different continents and many companies can take a page out of this company's book. We had a a briefing the evening prior which was great for answering questions before the trek began. This also provided an opportunity to get to know the guide (Valentine), who was excellent. The morning pick-up was efficient and... More

I spent the winter living in the Sacred Valley. After a number of months, a friend came to visit and we did a trek on the Inca Trail. Before planning the trip I had plenty of time to chat with other travelers and meet locals, guides, and porters. In the end, I chose Alpaca and was not disappointed. Those that... More

Alpaca organized our entire experience in the Sacred Valley/Cusco/Macchu Picchu. We are so glad we decided to go with them and could not be happier with our experience. They spent hours chatting/emailing with me before the trip to make sure every last detail in the itinerary was the way that we wanted it, and when we got there, it was... More

We didn't book the Inca Trail before the available permits sold out, but this alternative trek was probably a better fit for us. This tour featured scenic views of the Andes, beautiful ruins, and a quaint agricultural town in the mountains. My wife and I enjoyed the hike and found it to be plenty vigorous. Going uphill - even for... More

We so much enjoyed our 7 day trek Salkantay/Inca trail hike with Alpaca Expeditions. The whole experience was amazing and Alpaca made it easy and took care of getting the permits and securing our dates that we wanted. It was a trip of a lifetime that we will never forget. The staff was above and beyond, professional and genuially seemed... More
