Just returned from an amazing trip 4d/3n Inka trail with G adventures. While Machu Pichu at the end was a great site to explore it was nothing compared to the hike beforehand. The trail is amazing and despite the 200 tourists allowed onto the trail daily for the most part you had the sense of total isolation from normality among... More

If you're able, take a week of your busy life to complete this trail. You will not regret that you did.

We traveled to Peru with my wife in April 2014, and we didn't want to miss the experience of performing the Inca Trail. We are looking for quite a company that seems reliable, to us and we gave with Quechua Expeditions. We booked from Whites- New York , a simple procedure, and we could pay off the balance with trouble-free... More

The inca trail was an amazing experience I would definately recommend it! We did it with Peru Treks which was one of the cheaper companys - but I dont know why, we were very well catered for the whole trip. They were a great company - good food, great group and guide, they treated their porters well and we had... More

The inka trail has a TON of irregular, steep, stone stairs which will be brutal!!! But TOTALLY worth it when you get to your destination. Trail is safe, the nature is beautiful and the views are breathtaking.

They were exceptional. The tents, sleeping bags, equipment and food were all great. I became quite ill on the trek and decided to descend. A guide was fantastic and accompanied me down the trail on the second day. He ensured that I was safe at all times and that I met up with my group in Machu Picchu after I... More

This was the best thing I have done in my life, hands down. No matter which company you go through, the 4D/3N Inca Trail is not to be missed. The scenery is georgeous and the Inca sites show amazing history. However, this is not for the faint of heart or the sane of mind. You will be tired, and will... More

On 4 days trek is the very purpose of the trip to Machu Picchu, the ones that just go train up've only done half the attraction. Definitely recommended to walk the trail.

Let me preface this review by disclosing that I only did the one day trek. Despite that, arriving at the Sun Gate for our first glimpse of Machu Picchu was beyond compare. After completing the one day trek, I secretly wished that I had done the whole thing. In fact, I may have to return one day to get it... More

Incredible scenery. Don't underestimate the altitude or neglect to train. Trekking it made seeing Machu Picchu all the more wonderful.
