Hiked the Inca Trail in late March, and it was literally the hardest physical challenge I've ever done- and I trained almost every day for months beforehand (running, biking, weight-lifting, and stair running!). It was just excruciating. Because the trail had been shut down for maintenance all of February, when we hiked in March the bathrooms & trail itself in... More

I was disappointed with the Inca trek, and in hindsight id just get transport to aguas caliantes, one way bus up to macchu picchu, walk to sun gate take pictures, spend many hours on site there and walk down back to aguas caliantes. The walk itself was not as bad as i expected, yes altitude takes your breath away and... More

Our family of four (incl 2 teenagers) had a great time on this 3 day/2 night trip through the Sacred Valley and the Inca Trail. The trip was a success because of the flexibility and professionalism, Marco Palomino from Culturas Peru and Hernan Hermoza our private guide, demonstrated planning the trip and during the trip. They really wanted us to... More

Amazing experience, could not have asked for a better guide than Alfredo, Wayki is a local company, I strongly recommend this as it ensures the money stays in the local economy. They limit group size to max of 8 people, we were a group of 4 which was fantastic. Food was amazing.

My husband surprised our 3 teenage children (13, 16, 17) and me for Christmas with a trip to Machu Picchu. But, never one to take the easy route, we'd be hiking for 4 days to the Inca capital ... Uuggh. Although the kids and my husband are all athletic, my idea of hiking was an hour stroll through the woods... More

We did the 3night 4 day hike in March with GAdventures. Leading the way was our awesome tour guide David. He was incredible and it felt like 5star camping. David was very knowledgeable and the food was amazing thanks to head chef Will. The hike beat every expectation we had! Can't wait to go back and try the Lares Trek.
