Exhilarating, exhausting, amazing experience. Joined a group of 12 others to complete the 4D/3N trail through Intrepid, with some nervousness about my level of fitness and the walking ahead. So many reviews here, that there is little more to add. BUT - do be prepared for a tough walk - I had read that "anyone can do the Inca Trail... More

We coupled the Machu Picchu visit with a one-day hike of the Inca Trail (what most tour guides call the 2 day / 1 night Inca Trail hike). This consists of a full day of hiking the Inca Trail on the 1st day, staying at the town of Aguas Calientes (many trying to change the name of the town to... More

I recently completed the 4 day 3 night Inca trail with my partner in December. I would have the following recommendations for people considering the trail. (1) TOUR COMPANIES - The big three companies I would suggest booking through would be Wayki trek (who I used), Llama path or Cusi Travel. This is based on the fact these are the... More

We took the 4 day 3 night trip starting from Ollantaytambo and finishing at Macchu Picchu. I cannot even begin to describe how amazing this trip was. We had a lovely expedition group (a mix of English and German speakers) and really knowledgeable guides. We saw all kinds of temples, terraces, forts and other Incan sites and were always given...

This trail has amazing views, it's a "must do" if you ever travel to Machu Picchu. It's tiring, though and because of that I wouldn't recommend it unless you're really willing to do it until the end! It took me and my friends about 1 hour to do it all. Totally recommend it!

Not just seeing Machu Picchu but hiking the inca trail definitely ranked high on my bucket list. After months of research, planning, physical training and saving money, I was able to do the classic 4 days/ 3 nights inca trail last October 2015. And it was the best, exhilarating feeling ever! It was less of finally seeing Machu Picchu but... More

This was my first time sleeping in the outdoors, excluding the one time in college when I got drunk and slept on a park bench. I went through G Adventures and they were awesome!!! Great tour guides and awesome Porters. The porters carry the tents, cookware, and sleeping bags, and you carry your own day bag. The trail was challenging,... More

Totally recommend. Definitely the trip of a lifetime, Challenging in parts but very fulfilling when complete. Meet great fellow travellers also! The tour guides and porters are amazing. Please do check how the tour company you go with treats their porters as some are way petter than others!

The trek was a struggle and I suggest people who do the 4 day trek have an above average fitness level, and also stay in high altitude a couple of days before the trek starts. The ruins you see on the way are spectacular, and the final view is even more amazing! Get the passport stamp there as well, it's... More

The Inca Trail with 4d/3n is definately worth doing if you're able to do a normal hike and have the time. Speaking about worth, the cost should be from 400-600$. (Several in my group had 460$ including Wayna Picchu). I went to a travel agency in Cuzco and paid 760$ for the exact same as those who paid 460$. Stay... More
