Anyone can purchase a train ticket to Agua Calientes and take a bus up the windy road to see Machu Picchu. For those who are not fit, it is the perfect way to see this wonderful site. But for those who are willing to take the same path as the Incas themselves, the Inca Trail is the best way to... More

We chose Llamapath as our tour operator for the Inca trail, based on a lot of research and their treatment and welfare of the porters. We were certainly not disappointed. During the planning stage, Agnes answered every email with great suggestions and support along the way: nothing was a problem. When we arrived in Cusco, we were welcomed and briefed... More

My wife and I planned a trip to Peru primarily to see Machu Picchu and hike the Inca Trail because those two things were on my bucket list and were something that I wanted to do to celebrate my 50th birthday. We travel a fair bit, but have never used, or participated in an organized tour group type of travel.... More

Hiked for 4 days with G Adventures (who were amazing)! Day 2 was the hardest and the other days were pretty good. Recommended taking altitude sickness tablets as a prevention rather than cure as we saw a few people struggling with altitude sickness who were not in a good way. Definitely a big bucket list tick ✔️. Only big let... More

We loved the four day trek on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. We used Alpacca Tour Company for the trek and they were awesome! The trail was challenging for sure with lots of elevation gains and losses as well as uneven steps and stones that you needed to focus on. The views and ruins along the way, the great... More

The trek was tough we are modest Trekkers and found it a little hard towers the... More

We did the original Inca trail (there are now other routes due to increased tourist traffic) with Andes Adventures (Santa Monica-based) whose founder/owner holds dual Peruvian/American citizenship. He knows the country deeply and has been in this business for 20 years now, also offering running tours of the Inca Trail and even more challenging routes for hardcore marathoners. His local...

We had a great experience with this travel agency. The guides were great. The main guide Darwin was amazing and made the trip worth every penny. I would use the Bio Bio again and highly recommend this trip for anyone.

Just completed the 4 day Inca Trail trek with G adventures. It was absolutely the toughest thing i have ever done physically and mentally. What an accomplishment though. G Adventures was wonderful to go through as well, their guides and porters made this trip what it was.
