hardest four days of my life physically, but I would not swap a moment of it The views everywhere and every day were sensational. We were there in the wet season, but i think the mist actually made the vistas even better Great food You need to train for it, but you can take your time Pre dead woman's pass,... More

I spent a long time looking for a company to do the classic inca trail 3N/4D trek. I'm so glad I chose llamapath. They were easy to deal with (nothing was a problem), the trek was excellent, our guide knowledgeable and our porters were simply fantastic! Everyone in our group absolutely adored our porters! They really made our trip special.... More

Walking the inca trail to Machu Picchu is definitely on my list of memorable travel experiences. Getting to walk to old path through some beautiful nature and spending the night in tents along the trail was a lot of fun. If you book a tour through a local company your tent will be set up when you arrive at the... More

We booked our tour via G Adventures before departing on our 6 month adventure. The tour company is great and very professional – would highly recommend! We were booked into a hotel the night before the tour started in Cusco and that is where we met our Guides Kiko and Dimas! Very funny guides and very passionate about their jobs…to... More

One of the most beautiful trail I have seen. It's stunning panoramic view. The trail is made of stone and telling long history. I love this trail and this place. Just only one things I don't like is toilets that are not enough for tourists. They are very dirty and some tourists just did it behind the ruins. I saw... More

We only walked 1 day of the trail but it was arduous and steep. The views were incredible with many wild orchids, ferns and exotic plants and butterflies around us.

I actually did the Inca Trail back in April 2010. I went with G Adventures 7 day tours for around $800 CAD. Back then It was still called Gap Adventures. It was also my first ever multi-day hike, and the most supported and glamorous one. When I arrived to my camp every day, tents were already built, food was already... More

We undertook the 4-day trek with Peru Treks and Adventure. There are multiple options available, but we believe we were lucky enough to be using the best tour operators. Our guide, Will, was very knowledgeable and provided meaningful context to what is a tough trek. For most meals, we received three or four courses, and hot cocoa tea, other teas,... More

We travelled to Peru in April 2014 and hiking the classic Inca Trail was the centerpiece of our trip. We live at sea level, but were able to acclimate reasonably well after a few days in Cusco. We exercise on a regular basis, but there really isn’t anything that can prepare you for the altitude when you are used to... More

My friends and I joined the 4 day 3 night Inca Trail with SAS in Dec. I would say it is one of my most righteous choice I have ever made!The scenery itself is certainly unbeatable, but what truly impressed me was the passion of our guide Mike and Hernan and their respects towards the crews(all aboriginal) and how they...
