Not for the feint of heart. You've gotta be in good physical shape to do this because it's windy and rocky.

This is one of those unforgettable life experiences. The hike is of moderate difficulty for reasonably in-shape people. (Fatbodies should just take the train to Machu Picchu) I cannot speak highly enough of The tour operator Enigma. Ozzy was the guide and he made sure the trip was awesome. May is a good month because the weather is good and... More

Anyone interested in hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Piccu check out our amazing guide Roxner Cardenas Quispe​ and his company activeperutreks.com ......he is extremely knowledgable, we learned so much about the history of the Incas and I definitely recommend spending the first night in your porters village at one of their homes to learn more about them and their...

I found the whole trail a mighty waste of time. I think it should be done by car instead of foot. The trip would be much more enjoyable if you could stay at a four seasons hotel every night and just enjoy a nice summerbees steak. No point thinking your actually doing things like the incas, the only authentic part... More

I did the Inca Trail as part of the tour with G Adventures. They did a great job planning everything, it's camping but more what I would like to call "glamping" (glamorous camping); they carry all your stuff, you get hot lunches in a dinner tent, 3 course meals for dinner, the only thing they didn't do was carry me...

Wow! We did the 4 day hike with G adventures (amazing tour company). It was the hardest thing we ever have done, we are moderately active/ In shape 30 year olds. This was our honeymoon and it was amazing. Each tour company does things differently, so keep that in mind while reading. G encourages you to pack as light as... More

In October 2013 we were a couple of 4 Danish friends who had signed up for the 4 day Inca trek. On the evening prior to the trek we met with our guide at our hotel in Cusco. He made a big point of telling what to bring for the trek. However, it later appeared we carried way too much.... More

Our teenage daughter sourced Adios as our tour guides for the Inca Trail and she got it 100% right. From the initial communication to the post trek Jacquie in the US was superb. Our pre trek briefing by Fermin our guide was informative and friendly and put me at ease, since I was the least fit of our family, and... More

We did the four day Jungle Adventure Trek (including mountainbiking, rafting, walking and zip-lining) to Machu Picchu. The mix between adventure and the amazing scenery in the mountains + everything we learnt about the incas (or the quetchuaspeakers) was just perfect! We had so much fun every moment and the landscape was outstanding. A lot of great local food and... More

My husband and I are no spring chickens... but wanted to get this climb off the bucket list, and we can highly recommend it. We booked the trail through Journey South Latin America in the UK, and they used a local firm Viracocha who met us in Cusco, where we had 3 days to acclimatise to the altitude, and then... More
