The trail is awesome, so much to see along the way! Can't recommend SAS travel, guides were a bit sleezy!

I actually think there are a number of good companies, and the guide is at least as important as the company. In our case, we hit the jackpot with Eco Inka and our guide Harry. The company keeps the groups small - 6 people in our case, including 3 couples from 3 different countries and spanning more than 30 years... More

We did the one day hike, followed by a second day of hiking all around Machu Pichu Citadel. The one day hike was very challenging, but we are senior citizens and successfully completed it with the help of a great guide from Adios Tours. The scenery is amazing and the ruins you see along the way,are also fun. You are... More

Can't say enough about trekking the inca Trail to Macchu Picchu. Once in a lifetime experience! No question you should train and work on fitness before going and acclimatizing to the altitude in Cusco for several days before starting the trek is necessary. Have small change (1 sole coins) to pay for the "Bano" (toilet) facilities, water and snacks the... More

My husband and I did this on our honeymoon and it was an incredible experience. We went with G Adventures. It was our first hike and I would definitely recommend you either train or do hikes before doing this! We greatly underestimated it and although we did it, it was really hard work. The altitude does affect the breathing when... More

I rated the Inca trail 5 based on what I heard from people. However, My wife and I didn't know that we needed to reserve the trip so much in advance (btw, only traveling agencies will take you there, and you pay for it), and in fact, didn't even know that we'll be visiting Peru, and thus could not do...

We loved our 4 day trek on the Inca trail to Machu Picchu. Andina Travel gave us a private tour (available for groups of seven or more), which was perfect. The food was good and the porters and guides took care of all our needs. You need to be in decent shape or you will have trouble, but you don't... More

Outstanding views and people. Hard work with the altitude but worth it. Comodore Travel was our outfitter and did and excellent job.
