        Thanks for this amazing experience!
        I did the classic 4D/3N Inca Trail. Our guide was Yiyo and he had an amazing knowledge and was a fantastic guide. He was also very friendly and it was very funny with him. The porters and the chef Mario were amazing. They helped me with my backpack and were always happy to help. The food was really delicious and there was always enough different food. They also were happy to make some extra tea if you was not feeling weel. Thanks alot to the whole team, I can really recommend this tour with them. The booking and preparations were done months in advance with the backoffice and it was very smooth. They were happy to answer all questions. For the preparations of the packing list I got a packing list and the guide came personally to my hotel a day before the start to discuss everything.

        An incredible trip
        Amazing experience with a great guide and team. Mario’s food was so good and there was always so much of it. Hard to believe he’s rustled that all up on a camping stove! The porters were also all very helpful and friendly, would recommend. Yo-yo was an amazing guide who kept us laughing the whole way, even when we got drenched in a downpour! He was very knowledgeable, answered all our questions and couldn’t have been more helpful

        Papa Freddy’s the best!
        We toured Machu Picchu, the 3 garden rings (I forget what they’re called) & the salt mines with papa Freddy who was by far the best tour guide we had the entire time! We loved how passionate & patient Freddy was, & how he really took the time to walk us through the spiritual side of these places. He was also really funny. We would recommend him to anyone and when we return, we definitely want to see him again!

        CHINCHERO, MARAS, MORAY & MACHU PICCHU
        This tour was an unforgettable experience that will last the rest of our lives. We started by visiting Chinchero, where the Incas educated us about the process used to create and color the brilliant llama-made products. We probably overspent there, but it was worth it. From there, we went to Moray to visit the ruins of the Incas, which was for agricultural research. We then visited the salt mines of Maras before having lunch and catching the train to take us to Aguas Calientes, our staging point for Machu Picchu the next day. The Machu Picchu sanctuary deserves all the accolades we hear about. The history of it and the Inca, as told from the perspective of our Inca guide, Ernesto, is profoundly fascinating and simply a celebration of human achievement regardless of the stresses American Indigenous cultures endure despite the oppression and advanced technology of the colonial powers. The fact that this sanctuary exists irrespective of the best efforts of colonial Spaniards to destroy all Inca construction and culture will resonate with me forever.

        Splendid tour with great guide
        We took an 8-day tour for Cusco, Sacred Valey, Machu Picchu, Pisaq, Puno and Titicaca Lake. We really enjoyed the experience – the schedule is packed so that we can visit those most important and interesting sacred places but we still have some time to explore the cities and towns by ourselves (and time to sleep which is really important for me in high-altitude areas). This tour suits people who enjoys different and mysterious culture and, in the meantime, a vacation not that exhausting.   Special thanks to our guide Paul Cano who is hard working, considerate, and knowledgeable. His introductions of the various sites are very informative, and, a compliment from a lawyer (myself, rare compliment), organized and easy for understanding. I did some homework regarding the Pre-Inca and Inca times before the trip and I know the mythologies are very complicated. It should be hard to explain the history and stories clearly. Paul manages to do that – he is a real talent! I particularly like his introduction for the Sacred Valey, Ollantaytambo and the society status under Inca's reign. He made the trip a 4D experience – we may picture the Incas and the masters before the Incas across time and space. On top of the preceding, Paul is a great (really great!!) photographer and took a lot of magnificent pictures for us.   I never wrote comments on tripadvisor or any platform. But I really liked the tour so that I download this app to provide the comment. I would highly recommend this tour!

        Wonderful and informative trip, with incredible staff
        We booked an 8-day trip that covers Cusco, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Pisaq, Puno and Titicaca Lake, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience! The staff is very hard-working, knowledgeable, considerate and patient, through our unexpected delayed flight and prolonged train ride to Aguas Calientes. Our guide Paul Cano is exceptional. Not only did he do his best in taking care of everyone's needs in the group, but he is also incredible in providing very informative introductions to the Inca culture and pre-Inca times, the various intricacies in different stones, structures, architecture, fountains etc. He successfully made us more interested in studying different aspects of Peruvian history and cultures, inspiring us to in-depth studies in future. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in history and cultures, and who does not want to be exhausted in doing so:)

        Wonderful experience with a wonderful company
        The 4 day Inca tour to Machu Picchu exceeded my expectations. It was absolutely beautiful and worth the sometimes brutal incline and decline to see it (use the stair master!) Our guide Ronald was generous with his wealth of information, kind and funny. He checked on the 4 of us regularly even with the difference in personal pace. Without him the journey would have been completely different and devoid of Peruvian and Incan history. His stories and perspectives made the trip. The porters were lovely, always said hello on trail and consistently amazed us with their navigation skills and power on the trail. Please be prepared to tip them generously as they work insanely hard to ensure you have a wonderful experience. The food on the trail was absolutely delicious. 3 of the 4 of us chose vegetarian and they still accommodated the 1 meat eater by providing a meat dish at every meal. Our chef and co-chef worked hard and were very cleanly in preparation. We probably ate too much food at every meal because it was so delicious. We specifically chose Inkayani tours because it was a small, locally owned company and are very happy with that decision. My friend and I chatted afterwards about how we would absolutely do the same trail again (or a different one!) with the same company. It's important to us that money stay local, with the local people. A few things to note: DO • bring toilet paper and wet wipes • bring hand sanitizer • bring a headlamp for the final morning • plan to take pictures of the Flora (you'll see familiars if you're from the West Coast, and amazing orchids on the last day) • train your cardiovascular stamina with your fav form of exercise and climb stairs to properly prepare. • keep a travel journal (I regret not keeping up with mine throughout the journey. I've already forgotten so many wonderful things) • bring an awareness that you are in someone else's home. Please treat it with respect, throw away your trash and be mindful that their customs and norms are different than yours. This includes how people say hello and interact with one another. Instead of assuming harm, let's assume best intentions. • HAVE A BLAST!

        This tour was amazing - the sites that we visited exceeded my expectations. Cesar, our guide for 2 days, was absolutely amazing - his knowledge and ability to engage us with his stories was awesome. We loved everything about this tour and would highly recommend the tour. Thanks Cesar - you’re an awesome guide.

        7 Day Salkantay & Inca Trek - best experience ever
        Our guide Papa Freddy, Chef Fausto, and their entire team gave us a phenomenal experience with this trek that far surpassed any of my expectations! Papa Freddy did an exceptional job with giving his personal touch & support to each of our groups members. He had great energy throughout the entire journey, and was very strong at sharing all spiritual & historic significance behind everything we experienced to make it mean so much more than just a hiking trip. Our group also had a lot of last minute logistical adjustments due to travel changes, which he handled seamlessly without any signs of frustration. I had heard that the food was going to be great on the trip, but Chef Fausto and his team also went way beyond anything that I could have imagined. They gave us some of the best meals I had during my entire stay in Peru! Also they were great at accommodating a tough group with very nuanced dietary constraints. Overall, I had an amazing experience and wouldn’t choose any other company & guide for this trip! 10/10 recommend :)

        Best guided tour possible. We had multiple drivers, pickups, guides, etc. All were on point, on time and took great care of us. Special thanks to our Cusco guide Herlin for giving us special attention and support in times of need. I ended 4x in hospital and he was patient, accommodating and customized the rest of the tour to suit ma capabilities. Overall, a wonderful experience thanks to him!!

      We had a wonderful private tour with 3 of us visiting Chinchero, Maras, Moray with Inkayni Tours. The entire experience was excellent. We were picked up at our hotel in the morning and Freddie was an amazing guide the entire day. We learned an incredible amount about the Inca culture and traditions from him. The scenery is gorgeous and each site was very unique. A very memorable day and we will highly recommend it.

      We had booked the private tour but when they came to pick us up there was someone else in the van who was on our tour with us. Then the tour title indicates it’s a full day tour and it turned out to be just a half day tour. The salt mines, moray and Chinchero themselves were amazing, definitely worth going to. The guide was not too bad but would’ve been nice if he was more upbeat and engaging. Overall it was okay for us and we got to see the sites we wanted to but I would probably go with another tour company next time.

      We took the Maras, Moray, and Chinchero private day trip and added on Ollantaytambo for a small cost. Maras, Moray, and Ollantaytambo were the highlights. Our guide, Jonathan never rushed us as we took tons of pictures and was always willing to answer any questions, and he even gave us some additional information on Machu Picchu on the way home. He arrived at our hotel on time and re-arranged the order of our tour so that we got in to see the Mara salt pools and Ollantaytambo before the crowds got in which was very awesome of him. Our driver was exceptionally skilled and we drove by some really wonderful mountain views. Lunch wasn't included, but there was time to grab something to eat. Overall, wonderful tour.

      Our first full day in Cusco, decided to take this tour because it seemed really interesting and thought it would be a good way to acclimatize to the altitude without over exerting ourselves - and it was all that and more!

      We were picked up at our hotel on time, given a small gift (and water) and off we went! Our guide Carlitos was very knowledgeable and our driver, Al (sorry don't know how to spell his name) was excellent. Can't remember the last time my car door was opened for me so many times - he was very polite, sweet and solicitous- and a great driver. Carlitos explained all the history behind the Maras salt pans, the Moray ruins and Chinchera. He also acted as our professional photographer at all the sites- which was greatly appreciated.

      All in all we had a fab day, lots of laughs, and learnt lots too.

      When we got to Cusco my wife got very severe altitude sickness and could barely do anything - we even had to go see a doctor. I informed Inkayni tours that we would have to cancel last minute (I gave them less than 24 hours notice). Instead of giving the standard response that they couldn't do anything, they refunded half the tour price! It was such a nice thing to do on Christmas and I cannot express my gratitude enough for how understanding and nice their team was.

      Dear Kenzo, the caring for our clients is essential because without the services hired of us, we couldn't go ahead like company. Thank you so much for your comment and gratitude expressed. We hope you can join us in a future. Kind regards, INKAYNI PERU TOURS.
