Impressive Place!!!

The Inca Trail is one of the best hikes I did, but the road is impressive, when you get to Machu Picchu is the prize of the 4 days of hard walking

Thank you G Adventures for a truly amazing 4 day hike along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Our Guides Washington and Fletcher were so knowledgeable and passionate that we learned so much about the trail, the archaeological sites visited, and the history of the Inca's. The Porters were amazing and a pleasure to meet, the scenery and especially the... More

The Inca Trail is accessible to most who are reasonably fit and can cope with altitude, bearing in mind acute mountain sickness is totally unpredictable. We did the 7 day Salkantay trail that joins the Inca Trail. The steps are demanding and I wouldn't like to be on the trail when it is wet. The trail is truly magnificent. Views... More

If you are fit enough, this is THE way to visit Machu Picchu. Incredible scenery, rich history and memories to last a lifetime! We hiked the 4 day trek through Peru Treks in early August 2015. The organization, porters, food and guides were excellent. I even got a birthday cake in the mountains! We learned a lot about the trail... More

We had a great time! My 3 boys and I did the 4 day Inca Trail with Llama Path. They advised us well before the trip; took care of us during the hike; and gave us all a very memorable trip. Experiencing Machu Picchu from the trail made it even more memorable. We felt we earned the visit. Going from... More

We had the best time ever doing the Inca trail: 4 days and 3 nights on the trail with Condor Travel. This is, hands down, the much better option to do Machu Picchu. First of all, Machu Picchu is so crowded with slow people! It was especially apparent after traveling the Inca Trail, where you have all of these incredible... More

We did the short train version on the way there and back by train and bus. It was well worth the effort. Do not miss out on the closed inca bridge which can be seen from the Machu Pichu site about 20 min walk or so.

My partner and I completed the 4 day/ 3 night Inca Trail trek with 'Peru Treks and Adventure'. They were amazing from start to finish! They looked after us every step of the way (pun not intended!) and when people were having a tough time on the trail or got sick, they handled it in a caring and professional manner.... More
