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

I did the 4 day Inca Trail with G-Adventures. Everything was been taken care of in such a good way, that you could just enjoy the walk to the fullest! It's true that you do need to have a good level of fitness to finish this trail. But nevertheless, it's something everyone def can do in my opinion! It's so... 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

Booked through Intrepid Travel and to my surprise was the sole hiker with my own guide, cook, and 4 porters. The trail was a magnificent construction of interlocking granite blocks clinging to the side of almost vertical cliffs, passing through part of the Andes. The highest pass was 4215 metres above sea level and was a bit of a challenge... More

It really scared me to think about...but once on the trail the fear melted away to resolve. We were so lucky to be with our expert guides (Evert and Jesus) and in such a great group of fellow travelers (13 total). The whole experience was more than we could have asked for. Bring your camera. Weather in June was fantastic.... More

We hiked the Inca Trail with G Adventures in July 2014. I would highly recommend both G Adventures and this trek. It's not a walk in the park. The hike is challenging (and this is coming from someone who lives at altitude to begin with and is relatively fit), but the scenery is not to be missed. I can't imagine... More

Ok, first off we travelled with Peru Treks & Adventure Tours. They were amazing and I highly recommend them. But this is not a review on them. This is a review solely on the trail. We trekked the 4 day/3 night trail and found it generally unforgettable. The first day is indeed a walk in the park. The second is... More

After a considerable amount of research on the eye-watering number of Inca tour operators, we decided on Quechuas Expeditions. We were not disappointed. From start to end of our Inca trail, the Quechuas team (porters / Chef / Guide) could not do enough to ensure that all our needs were more than met. This began with providing an adequate amount...

I went hiking the Inca Trail with G Adventure, our guide is Enrique, Miguel, and Odelio are extra ordinary awesome. I'm 51 years old, does exercise regularly but not a hard core hiker. I'm so exhausted on the second day and almost give up, but Enrique and all other guides are very supportive and very patient. Even tough they have... More
