The most amazing trip ever! We did it over 4 days, so we didn't see any other tour groups until arrival at the Sun Gate. It made it feel like it was our trail, our own little world. We booked through Explore! The Adventure Travel Experts - highly recommend them!

Got of the train at KM 104...in the middle of nowhere! A great experience of trail-walking for our family of 4 (ages 18-to-57). Arrived at Machu Picchu at sunset for a view of a lifetime...the only way to get to MP!

Loved hiking the Inca Trail, but it was hard work. We went with G Adventures who were brilliant - very encouraging and helpful. Amazing views and a real sense of achievement once we finished.

One of the best vacations of my life. Super hard (I would say I'm in moderately good shape but not a marathon runner) but its worth every drop of sweat. There is a sense of satisfaction when you hike into Machu Picchu that makes the experience so much more rich. You have a deeper understanding of the Inca because you... More

Everything from start to finish was spot on with this company! Our guides Freddie & Jimmy were great! So enthusiastic and they did everything they could to make sure you were having a good time! The food was so tasty especially after a days walking and there was so much of it, you would never not be full. During the... More

We went the tour with llama path and guide Juan. Juan is amazing. He explained the Inca history and Peruvian stories little by little on the way. In the end, we knew the whole stories about Inca and Peru when we arrived Machupicchu. Besides, we also saw the evidence of the story in Machupicchu. It's really the best way to... More

If you are about visiting Cusco, Sacred Valley or Machupicchu, your experience will be better if you choose to do the Inca Trial. Is not just about the ruins, it is about the experience, the nature, the food. You will love Peru after this experience. Be aware you must be in good shape, it is not a long distance but... More

This trek was the highlight of our family trip. If you are in relative good shape - the trek can be demanding at times - you want to experience following the footsteps of the Incas. Up early, between 3:30 and 5:30, in bed early, usually around 8:30pm, we hiked from 7am to past 5pm for the first three days. Then... More

We decided we didnt have the time to hike the whole trail (4 days) so we did the hike from the 104th km to Machu Picchu. the hike took some 5 hours a t a brisk pace with few stops. It is not an easy hike - mostly uphill. The views of the river are wonderful and there's some amazing... More

The trip of a lifetime. Trekking the Inca trail brings you up-close and personal with a number of Incan ruins that are uncrowded (only the folks you're trekking with) and you have free range to explore. Once you arrive at Macchu Picchu, which is also an incredible site, you'll be joined with thousands of other tourists and it will be... More
