i just got back form doing the 4 day inca trail and i must say this was an incredible experience. The trekking company we went with Uncoverlatinamerica did really well we only had 6 people in our group and they only allow 10 people max per group. We saw some other groups of around 18 people and no one looked... More

We (my friend and I) did the Inca Trail with Peru Treks in mid September. I couldn't find a Trip Advisor page for them so hopefully this review is still useful here... Everything ran smoothly from our online booking soon after permits became available earlier this year; through to being dropped back in Cusco after the hike. Although they are... More

If you go to Cusco and want to visit Machu Pichu, you can do a 4 days and 3 nights tour called the Inka Jungle Tour. Aita Peru is the agency that we chose to do it. It is located in Cusco. This is the best option if you want to know Machu Pichu and get some good knowledge about... More

The journey and the anticipation were much grander than being at Machu Picchu with loads of tourists. My husband (49) and I (39) are in ok shape. We exercise (jogging, basketball, tennis) 2-3 times a week. We used to hiked more often in the past few years. Unfortunately, we were too busy to do any extra training for Inca Trail.... More

This was a trip of a lifetime for me having wanted to do this since I was six (I'm 51). My husband has admitted that he wasn't all that interested in this trip, that he was only doing it for me. But once we started on the trek, he was hooked. We both feel this was the best holiday we've... More

One of the best trips I have undertaken in my life. The Trail was also one of the hardest things I have done in my life. I have a high level of fitness and I struggled with the ascent to the 4200 point of the Dead Women's pass. It snowed and the temperatures dropped to well below zero, so the... More

We have just completed the Inca trail to Macchu Picchu which was an amazing experience. It is worth doing it just because of the views, the history, and the wonderful walking experience. A few points however. Beware of the company you book with. We booked over the internet with Inca Trails and found a few little issues. The guide was... More

One of the most exciting adventures I have embarked myself into. From the marvelous views and historic sites, to the personal effort demanded on the steep climbs and descends. You have to be willing to challenge yourself, but the effort will be rewarded with the beauty of this very spiritual journey. This trip of 3 nights and 4 days from... More

An amazing, life-affirming challenge that is actually more worth it than Machu Picchu itself. Be prepared to sweat, laugh, cry and perhaps think your legs are going to fall off. So many interesting sites along the way that are so peaceful and full of interesting history. In my opinion, toilets on the trail can be...unsettling, but don't let that put... More
