My husband and I decided to spend a holiday in Peru and our desire was to know Machu Picchu and why not walking, was a big challenge to make this route, but finally we arrived and it was all good, a little tired but it was worth doing this route really fantastic.

The 4 day trek was wonderful, sometime gruelling but better than taking the train. If you can stand camping in the Andes then I suggest you do not miss this opportunity.

One of the most incredible experiences of my whole life, hands down. The scenery was mindblowing, incredible mountains and forests, I had to keep stopping to take pictures. You see alpacas and llamas, plus a range of different birds, I even saw a hummingbird. Even though there are so many people trekking the trail every day, its easy enough to... More

We booked with Sungate tours in May 2012. A great company. They were organized and we had a small group (6). The trail wasn't as busy as I thought, we were spread far enough from each other. We saw the other groups at the campsites mostly. I wish I wore my dayhikers not my sturdy backcountry boots, it made it... More

If you want to get to know how strong you are and how amazing nature and God are, hike the inka trail to machu pichu. It's the most breathtaking site after a 5 day hike.

I love to hike while travelling and the Inca trail has been on my bucket list for a while. I'm Swiss and used to trekking in the mountains. Inka trail has been a very good experience but I wouldn't say it's the best hike ever. If you decide to do the Inca Trail, definitely make sure to have a few... More

To do the Inca trail you need to be in shape... there is 3 and a half day walking, and in the mountains, sometimes with high altitude... having said that, doing this trail, is to live in flesh the inca's history, seeing in the way ruins that you don't see going to Machu Picchu by train... Highly recommended, one of... More

This was one of the highlights of our vacation in Peru. Our guide for the day provided us so much great information on the Peruvians and their way of life in the mountains. I do recommend this trail to anyone that likes a great hike with some of the most incredible views and ruins that you will ever see.

I did the Inca Trail Hike in April 2013 as part of a 3 week G adventures tour. It was definitely one of the best experiences I've had. I would recommend G adventures to anyone and everyone; it was completely organized, professional, and everything went seamlessly. The trail was so gorgeous, with breath taking views and ruins at every turn.... More

It is a great challenge, but so well worth the trek. It is stunningly beautiful and the history of the trail and people is worth every step.
