About
You have heard about the Inca Trail, which is one the most famous routes to get to royal grounds of Machu Picchu.  The Inca Trail crosses selected points of the beautiful Inca sacred valley that is unique for its amazing landscapes.  The   2 day trek, does not contemplate camping or hiking, instead you will travel by a   Expedition train and enjoy the superb scenario of the Inca Valleys until you get to a point to disembark and from a designated location you will walk the trail and get to the 'Sun gate'.  The views from this panoramic landscape will encourage you to finish, one in a lifetime experience, the  Machu Picchu trek.

Unbelievable… Breathtaking… Beyond My Expectations!!
Nov 2021 • Couples
This experience was fantastic! Not only are the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu absolutely breathtaking, our guide, Corina, was amazing. She was so experienced and knew every bit of history of the Incas. She always made sure we knew the history of what we were seeing or doing so we can appreciate more. On top of all of that, she was cool under pressure when a mudslide delayed our train service to KM 109 from Ollantaytambo. She assessed the situation and was able to react quickly to ensure that we still got the great experience we were there for. She got us to to the Inca trail in time so we could still do our hike and catch the last bus from Macchu Picchu to Aguas Calientes. She is passionate about what she does and it shows in the quality of her work. This trip was everything I expected it to be, and much more! Truly a once in a lifetime adventure!

Machu Picchu and the Inca trail

We had a great trip! Corina our guide was so friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. We ran into some unexpected challenges (a mud slide delayed all the trains) but Corina had many options and solutions for us and everything was amazing!! We would recommend Corina and Valencia travel and can’t wait to use them again in the future.

Excellent and very special experience
Sep 2021 • Friends
We were so lucky to get Corina as a travel guide. We had struggled with altitude sickness but she patiently encouraged us up the mountain at a manageable pace and shared so much knowledge of the architecture and Inca people. Climbing up to Machu Picchu is an experience we will never forget and it was made so much more special by having such a wonderful guide.

Extremely knowledgeable guide
Jul 2021
My experience with Valencia Travel and the 2 day trek was really great -- I'd highly recommend them. Cecilia was our contact person, and she explained everything clearly and was patient with all my questions.Our guide Claudio was amazing -- I was really impressed with his knowledge, not only of Machu Picchu, but also with Inca history and culture. Claudio was raised in the local Inca community, and he is really passionate and enthusiastic about all things Inca! He also knew about many of the plants on our trek, and how they were used medicinally by local people. He was fun to be with, and very patient and encouraging, as we took quite a while to complete the long hike on the first day. We learned a lot, had a great time, and were really tired at the end of it! Also, the hotel they arranged in Machu Picchu Pueblo (aka Agua Calientes) was really nice, and we ate at a great local restaurant. We were very proud of ourselves for doing the trek, as it was harder than anything we had ever done, and a little harder than they represented (lots and lots of steep stairs)! The hike was gorgeous, and the whole thing was extremely worth it, as Machu Picchu was more 'otherwordly' than we ever could have imagined. An amazing lifetime memory thanks to Claudio and Cecilia at Valencia Travel.

Just arrived at our hotel in Cusco after two days traveling with Valencia Cusco Travel.
First thing we did was to get online so we could write about our tour, and specifically, our tour guide.
We had the great pleasure to take this tour with Rene Suyo. Rene is professional, knowledgeable, pleasent, trustworthy and honestly ,the nicest guy you'll ever meet. He was incredibly patient, helpfull and cheerful. He had answers to any question we had for him, and solution to any problems that came up along the way. He showed us the special plants of the trail, and explained about every interesting thing we came upon. He definitely made the tour a once in a lifetime experience. The tour as a whole was wonderful, felt as if we were worthy of visiting this incredible pice of history, after hiking the 7 amazingly beautiful hours on the Inca trail. Most recomended to anyone who visits the area.

Dear Amitai: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with Valencia Travel Cusco. I´m sure Rene enjoyed attending your queries as much as you enjoyed your trekking. Definitely the 2-Day Short Inca Trail is an excellent alternative for all those who want to experience the Inca trail and enter to Machu Picchu through the Sun Gate, the Machu Picchu sightseeing is amazing. On behalf Rene Suyo and the whole team of Valencia Travel, thank you for letting us be part of your memorable holiday. Looking forward to welcoming you back! Rene Hurtado V. General Manager

Amazing hike and visit to Machu Picchu
May 2019 • Family
We had a fantastic visit to Machu Picchu, everything organized through Valencia Travel. Our guide, Ruben, was terrific all along the way. He was very informative, fun and helpful. He even carried my wife's backpack for a while when she needed to gather her strength during the hike. The hike itself was very strenuous and highly rewarding! I strongly recommend it for anyone who wants to experience the Inca trail but cannot do the full four-day trek. It was incredibly beautiful and we are so glad we got to experience it. Seeing Machu Picchu at both sunset and sunrise was unforgettable!

I also want to give special thanks to Vanessa, our travel adviser at Valencia. She provided clear and quick communication all through the planning before our trip, and she helped make the whole experience easy so we could simply enjoy it and not worry about the details.

Baby Trail with Corina
My sister and I did the two day Inca trail trip and loved. It was exactly what we wanted - enough of a hike but without the time required for the 4 day camping trip. Our guide Corina was fantastic. She’s a true professional in every sense of the word and we not only enjoyed her invaluable wealth of knowledge but her company as well. She completely tailored the experience to what we wanted and it couldn’t have been better. This was our third tour with Valencia in Peru and they exceeded our expectations every time!

Amazing Experience - Great Way To Visit Machu Picchu
Jul 2018 • Couples
My wife and I recently took this trip to start our honeymoon. The 2-day private service was a perfect mix of time on the Inca Trail and within Machu Picchu. Our guide was fantastic and all of the accommodations and the organization of the trip were wonderful. We cannot recommend this experience enough.
