According to our SAS Travel guide, in 15 years on the trail, only 5 have not made it. My wife and I are avid hikers in Colorado, but we still found the trail challenging. We STRONGLY recommend getting into shape before heading to Peru, otherwise you will have a miserable 4 days on the trail, with only the final day... More

It's tough. It's gruelling. It's just steps, steps and more steps.. Oh did I mention that there are a lot of steps? It's definitely worth it all in the end. I know it's hard to believe this when on the trail but seeing the glorious sight of Machu Picchu at the end makes the lactic acid cramp secondary (kind of).... More

My wife and I along with 8 other intrepid walkers completed the 4 day, 3 night Inca Trail thanks to the excellent support provided by Condor Travel. Our guides, Hector and Juan Jose along with the cook and porters really made this walk memorable. We were spoilt with the quality and quantity of food provided. We learnt a lot about... More

The hike is outstanding views you will never ever forget. Is it hard yes but worth all the sweat and sense of accomplishment when you arrive at the sun gate. Alpaca is a great guide company I strongly recommend.
