A really well organised trek thanks to our guides Teddy and Max from alpaca expeditions. They were very helpful and made it an experience we'll never forget. Also a huge thanks to all the hard working porters especially Huan and chef Mikhael who cooked us lovely food.

This review is very late. My friends and I started this trek on January 1st, 2021 and it was one of the best experiences of my life.

TREK:

To begin, the biking was pretty easy, but your should at least prepare your butt to be sitting on a bike seat for a few hours. If you go in cold turkey you could be sore for the days to follow.

Rafting was very intimidating at first, but after you get on the water it feels pretty safe and the guides there are clearly very comfortable on the water. Their confidence was very assuring for us.

The hike... Well, let me say, when we were looking at which tour to do, we chose the Jungle Trek specifically because the reviews say you don't really need to be in shape. This hike, was not for the faint of heart and you should absolutely train for this. You will spend at least half the day going up a considerably steep incline. Added to that, it is important to understand that in some places, you are walking on ledges without any barriers between you and the trees and/or river below. The Andes mountains are intimidating in size and unpredictability, but our guide definitely helped us to feel safe.

Zip-lining was amazing. We got to hang in different positions across the lines and see part of the Andes in a whole new way.

FOOD:

I'm a vegetarian, so every entree I had was usually different than everyone else's. And every single meal was amazing. Most of my meals were just a variation of vegetable mix dishes, but they were all different, expertly seasoned and fresh. FRESH. Mind you, they grow all the food you eat without hormones or pesticides and it's often grown on the same property of the restaurants you're eating at. Lunch and dinner are always 3 courses; salad, soup, and entree. I want to go back and eat at every place we stopped again... and again... and get the recipes.

GUIDE:

Our guide was Eduardo. I cannot say enough good things about this man. He was so knowledgable and really cared to get to know us. He gave us good tips for places to visit in Cusco, helped us by interpreting for us at times, and always helped to make us feel safe. We never doubted whether we were in good hands with him. He always took safety precautions seriously for COVID prompting us to wear masks when we entered new communities. He also gave us such great insight into Peruvian and Inca cultures. The next time I visit Peru, I'll definitely be reaching out to Eduardo to arrange a visit. My friends and I were all very grateful to have had him as our guide.

I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking to see the untamed side of Peru! During the tour you get to see stunning mountain scapes (on foot and by bike), quaint communities and of course the fabled Machu Picchu. Our tour guide, Jonathan, helped to make the experience exceptional. He went above and beyond with any questions or concerns we had and was very organized during the trek.

A word of caution though: the hostel we stayed at for the final night before Machu Picchu was beside a couple local bars. We happened to be staying in this hostel on a Friday night, and the locals were doing what they do. To make sunrise by foot at Machu Picchu, we woke up at 3:30 am to make the line to the first check point. You may want to coordinate with the tour company to get a private room if you are in Aguascalientes on a Friday/ Saturday night.

We booked the Inca Jungle Trek with Conde travel somewhat hesitantly with the mixed reviews on Google compared with trip advisor. We had some troubles with our booking before departing with the Conde travel office - so be careful with your booking, be firm and get everything in writing before committing a deposit.

Once we began our tour it was fantastic. Jhimmy was our tour guide and he is very experienced and genuinely enjoys his job and is passionate about sharing his local knowledge with tourists. We paid slightly extra for a small group tour that was English only and we ended up being the only people on the tour.

The accommodation was basic but comfortable, we were always given a private room with our own private bathroom. You'll have a cold shower for the first night but the weather is warm so it's not an issue. Jhimmy was always working hard to ensure the meals were ready on time for us and adding lots of small things into the tour for us that made it such an enjoyable experience. The food was much better than we expected with a good variety.

Having visited several Inca sites whilst acclimatising at Cusco we found Machu Picchu a little underwhelming and overcrowded. You really need to get the 6am tickets and get an early bus to get the most of your visit. This made us even more satisfied to have chosen the Inca Jungle trail instead of the train to get to Machu Picchu - for us the trek was the highlight of our time at Cusco.

My boyfriend and I did the 4 day jungle trek to Machu Picchu and it did not disappoint! Huang Zhu (hopefully that’s the right spelling) our guide was a legend!! He spoke amazing English, was always super friendly, knowledgeable and considerate along the whole trip. We loved that we got the opportunity to do different activities along the way, biking and zip lining were a standout! The trek itself isn’t too hard, mostly flat or downhill with a couple of small hills...the only decent hill is if you decide to climb up to Machu Picchu (totally optional). We got to Machu Picchu in the first wave of people...it essential you get there first otherwise it’s just flooded with people, the 4am wake up is worth it!! Machu Picchu itself is insane, it’s hands down the most incredible thing I’ve ever seen! The only disappointing part of the trip was that the return train ticket booked for us was at 7pm meaning we got back to Cusco at 11pm...it made for a very long day! If this happens I would recommend hitting up the Thermal Baths tucked up the back of town...not only did it kill time but they were very nice for sore legs and they have a pool side bar service!

I had a amazing time and enjoyed every second of my tour. I was traveling alone and the others were all from the same country so worried I would feel kinda like an outcast of the group. Jose did a great job of making sure we all had a wonderful time and really did feel like a family as we were traveling together. Jose was so knowledgeable about the history and culture and could tell he loved teaching about everything. I enjoyed all the meals and the accommodations were wonderful. Thanks for giving me a wonderful vacation I'll never forget.

Our guide was knowledgeable and kind. Unfortunately that was the only good part of our experience.

There was absolutely no communication from the company prior to our trip. They made errors in booking the train tickets on the way back to Cusco. They had told us we would arrive early evening, but then they booked us arriving at 1130pm even though all the other people in our group had been booked on an earlier train. We'd booked our trip several months before these people! And the company tried to blame us! They finally agreed to pay for the change in ticket, but because it was too late to do online, and the guide didn't have the required cash, they told us they would reimburse us via paypal. We requested several times and attempted to call and email, but no response and we're now out the money. So dishonest. It's quite a shame because the guide was nice.

Such a great time, from ziplining to white water rafting to walking the 3000 steps to Machu Picchu everything was a blast. Our guide Jhimmy was the best, super knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and funny. Speaks very good English too. Will tell all my friends traveling to Cusco to book with conde and ask for Jhimmy.

Thank you Jimmy for an amazing time, I would recommend this trek to anyone coming to Machu Picchu. Jimmy was a great guide, he was very informative about the history, the nature, the culture and also just allot of fun to be around. This trek is not ‘easy’ but it’s completely worth it for what you get to see and do. Over come your fears and challenge yourself to accomplish something very rewarding. I will never forget my experience!

This is a wonderful tour, and I was lucky to have an outstanding guide named Walter for four days! My only issue with the tour was that the night before, someone came to my hotel to brief me on the itinerary. What this man told me was not at all what the itinerary ended up being. I was very confused each day, as the info the man the first night told me wasn't accurate. Also, I wasn't told until the morning of the tour that I couldn't bring my luggage, and had to fit everything in a small backpack. The tour group did offer a nice touch by delivering my luggage I had to leave behind to my hostel the last day of the tour. The tour itself is incredible, yet tiring! It's definitely best for people who are in good shape! One day we hiked 10 miles total- half of which was uphill. We also went over some scary bridges, so definitely be ready for anything on this tour. I had a wonderful time, and Walter was amazing!
