We did a lot of home work prior to booking our trip 14 months in advance. The trek was part of "Peru Panorama" with G Adventurers which was excellent. As a couple in our late fifties we were worried about the age mix of the group and if we could complete the trek. Ages ranged from 15 -59 years, the... More

This trek has been on the bucket list a long time, and it was finally going to be a reality. Booked the hike with G adventures, and was not disappointed (you have to book month ahead, it gets full pretty fast). The guide knew pretty much everything you need to know about the incas, and made it very interesting. The... More

In general Peru tourism need a lot of improvement, they do have a lot of ancient Architecture to be appreciated by international tourism. But the local people are just dedicated to get the money from you . Services are really bad although this particular place is beautiful.

I’ve read lots of reviews on the Inca Trail, both pre-hike and post, so I am trying to give you a slightly nuanced view of what you are already reading. The common thread is that it is the hike of a lifetime, and the posts all reflect varying views of 1/ level of difficulty 2/ tips for success 3/ satisfaction... More

Great experience for my daughter (14) and me (48)....not easy, but awesome. We went with Peru Treks, and they were perfect from booking (booked in January for July) to follow up. We did the 4 day, 3 night hike. Guides were funny, friendly, and smart, their English was super. Bring $120 per person in soles (@350 soles in small denominations)... More

This trail is well worth the effort and exhaustion that goes with it, but don't forget to visit all the Inka sites along the way. Having a wonderfully informed and passionate guide makes for visiting sites very interesting and if you've made the effort to get to the trail why not make the most of it and visit as much... More

You can he 4 days or you can hike one day form km 104, by jumping off the train in the middle of nowhere (which is what we did). It was fun to see what Inka walls look like when covered in vegetation! Lots of ruins to see, along the way...and no people.

There are no words to describe what an amazing journey this is. It's an adventure, a pilgrimage...and at times a really hard slog. Despite altitude sickness and Dead Woman's Pass (named for the shape of the skyline, although you'll be feeling pretty "dead" when you see it!), the food and the views are spectacular and there's Incan ruins aplenty to...

I did the Kilometer 104 hike to Machu Picchu with my aunt in June. We had done a lot of research and were excited about this hike, which we both thought would be perfect for us. We worked with a travel agency to lock in our guide, train tickets and access to the trail. My background is that I'm a... More

I did the 4 day Inca Trail hike with Peru Treks. The hike itself is amazing. Not only do you get to explore several Inca ruins before arriving at Machu Picchu, but you also get to see the flora and fauna that the Andes has to offer. There are bathrooms along the trail that you can pay to use (none... More
