I did a guided Inca Trail 4D/3N in mid-March – Here are a few things I wish I had known. • I found it warm during the hike (mid-March trek). I always hiked in shorts and a t-shirt. I found that even in light or moderate rain, I tended to lean forward. My front stayed dry; my back was covered... More

My wife and I, who were well past 55, went with G Adventure in a group who were considerably younger that our children. It was very spiritual and, in retrospect a great deal of fun. We trained hard in the months before. The Guide and porters were wonderful men and provided much help and support. The feeling you have when... More

Myself and my girlfriend booked the Inca Trail hike with G Adventures. They provided a superb service from start to finish. However I said I'd make sure to pass on the following info to anyone else thinking about hiking the trail. If you just want to visit and appreciate Machu Picchu, then take the train! The 4 day hike is... More

I hiked the 4D/3N Inca trail in early March 2015 with my adult daughter as part of an SAS group trek and it was an unforgettable experience. Our trek, scheduled at the end of the "rainy season" had weather ranging from sunny to cloudy to rainy, though mostly it rained at night. Cloud cover made the daytime temperatures (around 60-ish)...

We got to Machu Picchu at the end of our Inca trail walk. The weather was overcast and a constant wave of clouds shrouded our view. You had to be patient and wait for the photo opportunities to present themselves. You arrive at MP via the sun gate entrance. One thing we found strange was that we had to go... More

We did the 4 days 3 nights inca trail with Gadventures (booked through STA in the UK) and it was fantastic! I would go back and do it all again tomorrow! From the very start our tour guide, Johan was great and took us round the markets in cusco before the trek had even began. On the trail, we had... More

Just got back from hiking the Inca Trail and might I say it was a wonderful experience. It was harder than I had anticipated. If you have never done any sort of physical activity, you might wanna train a bit. The rock steps are a killer, but the reward at the end is truly worth it. Our group hired Valencia... More

I lucked out and booked a 4 day 3 night Inca Trail tour with SAS Travel. I felt the trip was very professional, the food was more then plentiful and good. The porters and cooks did a fantastic job and worked hard for the success of this trek. The guides bent over backwards to the success of this trip. Thank... More

It was in 2002 that we hiked the Inka Trail. Nothing else like it. Had a great tour company experience on the way as they set up camp and prepared our meals.

I think this review will open eyes to many people. So as we booked our Inca Trail with Sam travel. that at the beginning we were about to book with another operator, we did not book with them because of the of higher price. Sam Travel charged really less than the others but what they didn't tell us that we... More
