Amazing trek, not clear enough with included
Sep 2021
Just did the Inca Trail with these guys and loved it! the trail itself was amazing however there were some issue which was not totally clear for us. We booked the fully package through the travel agent also we pay lot of money, and the surprise was when we arrive to Bamba office they charged us for sleeping bag, air mattress, and some other items, so they have to be clear with all of these before to book the trip.

Another thing wa with the tipping to the team(Porters, Chef) why they have to force us to put an amount for it. When we book it they said it is optional and according of the service we should decide about it and not the tour guide.

Hope Bamba can manage of it and make better for the future clients, but for now my rate will be only two starts.

Memory for life
It was amazing experience especially with our guides knowledge on the Incan history. My group we all built a long lasting friendship and with reaching Machu pichuu in foot after 4 days it’s an unforgettable experience and celebrating it over a beer. Vincente is a highly recommend guide for the Inca trail.

Amazing Inca trail experience!
Sep 2021 • Solo
I had an amazing 4 days on the Inca trail with Bamba. Vicente is a fun guide, very attentive. He made me feel comfortable, walking at my own pace, and we laughed a lot on the way. He had medical kit in case of any issues and he always checked that we felt ok. The porters and chef were lovely too. We ate delicious food - soups, main courses and snacks, different every day. They took great care of us. Make sure you pack super light or book a porter, as you will go through a lot of steps! But don't hesitate, book your Inca trail for a great experience!

Trek full of history
Inka trail is super interesting due to all preserved Inka sites, but I guess best parts were absence of crowds (unlike main Machu Picchu site ) and our knowledgeable guide Junior. 4 days long he always had something to tell and there was no question he would not be able to answer. We had a lot of fun and learned so much. Can really recommend Junior as a guide:)

Vicente and Jorge Are All-Stars!
Aug 2021 • Couples
Vicente (guide), Jorge (chef) and the group of porters (including Pablo and Juan) all did such an a amazing job to make my wife and I have a great trek along the Inca trail to Machu Picchu. Vicente went above and beyond to make sure that everyone was comfortable, safe, and enjoying the trip. His English is completely fluent and he is very personable. He was adaptable to the individual levels of experience in the group and made instructions clear for anyone that wanted to go ahead while others took their time. I would not want another guide, Vicente is the best! Jorge prepares amazing food and always had everything ready on time. He is adaptable to dietary restrictions, as 2 members of our group were vegetarian. He even prepared a birthday cake for a member of the group! The porters including Juan and Pablo were absolute machines, beating all of us to camp or lunch each day so that things could be set up by the time that we arrived. Overall an amazing experience. Bamba, you have made an excellent decision in employing Vicente, Jorge, Juan and Pablo. Thank you for a 5 star experience!

Fantastic Inka Trek!
We had a blast! Unforgettable landscapes, inka ruins, perfect food and group! Our guide Vicente did a great job. He knows a lot about history and culture and made sure everybody was fine. The porters were amazing: carrying our material, setting up the tents, preparing delicious food and waking us up in the morning by bringing coffee or coca tea to the tent. Amazing expirience!

Excellent 4 day/3 night Inca Trail to Machu Picchu!
Vicente + Jorge the chef + the team of porters made our Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu a one of a kind experience that my husband and I will remember for a lifetime. Vicente was patient with us as we took our time acclimating to the altitude while we climbed Dead Woman’s pass. He was informative on all the plants, animals, and historic sights along the trek. He always prepared us for what to expect and how to achieve our goal to reach Machu Picchu. Jorge’s food was excellent! We always had snacks for tea-time (aka happy hour) and he even surprised one of our fellow trekkers with a cake for his birthday! I was constantly amazed by the meals he created as we camped in rural areas along the trek. Our team of porters made our lives so much easier by carrying 20 kilos each! During our hikes I carried my water, sunscreen, and phone - that was it! They were all extremely pleasant, always smiling, and cheering us on when we arrived to camp. Every day they would leave behind us and arrive before us with our tents already up and ready for us. I know this was the first BAMBA four day/three night Inca Trek, but there was no telling! Vicente, Jorge, and the porters were well prepared and made this hard trek so rewarding and fun! Thank you Bamba, Vicente, Jorge, and the team of porters. Your country and its people are beautiful! My husband and I look forward to coming back!

Aug 2021
My son and I, had a incredible trip with our very good guide Vincent and the rest of the bamba team. Our cook, Jorge, was just amazing. The trip was very well organized, so I will give bamba my best recomandations.
My only complaint is the quality of the rented sleeping bag. In the night it became very cold -so you really need high quality gear.

Extraordinary trek, with the best possible crew!
Aug 2021
Me and my dad did the inca trail with our amazing tourguide Vincente. The whole team, including the cook, guide and porters were super professionel, service minded, extremly helpful and super friendly. We have never experienced such an extraordinary trip, and the people around us made it complete. So a special Thanks to the whole team for making the trek not only possible, but a great memory we will never forget.
All in all, definitely book with bamba! U wont regret it.

AMAZING TREK AND TOUR COMPANY FOR MACHU PICCHU EXPERIENCE
Mar 2020
We did the 4 day trek to Machu Picchu. We had arranged to do the classic Inka Trail but this was unfortunately closed by the Government because of landslides to ensure the safety of Tourists. Bamba communicated to this and placed us on the Quarry Trek which is typically c.£100 more at no additional price and gave us the option to cancel for a full refund. This shows an honest tour company. We had continued updates and communication before. The briefing the night before was longer than it needed to be but that was okay because it highly informative and gave critical information for preparation.

The Quarry Trek was amazing and scenic. Ascending to a height of approximately 4200m above the clouds. The tents are provided for and the chef prepares the food which is a welcome relief after trekking continuously in high altitude. It is completely worth it though for the spectacular views you see throughout the tour of breathtaking natural beauty.

The food prepared from the chef was good (considering he had to prepare it in the mountains). There was a lot of food meaning we could replenish calories and energy to combat the trekking.

Special mention to our tour guide Junior who was FANTASTIC! He engaged all of us throughout teaching us about our surroundings and providing examples. His English was wonderful and he provided lots of interesting historical background to the Inkas. The tour he provided of Machu Picchu itself was of very high quality also explaining lots of different facts about it and differing theories and insight into how the site will be in the future. He was polite, professional and heightened the experience for all - no doubt.

Machu Picchu is simply the most breathtaking sight and well worth visiting.

I cannot recommend Bamba enough for this experience!
