Great time, phenomenal views
Sep 2021
Had a phenomenal time on my Humanity Lake hike! Pick up (although early) was so easy, with pickup right near my hostel. It's a long, windy, but beautiful path. We stopped for breakfast on the way. Food and views were great! Continued on to start hiking around 11:30am. Our guide was so fun and took the time to describe some of the history of the area, which enhanced my experience immensely! The hike itself is tough, but mostly because of the altitude. It's beautiful with awesome views the entire way. The lake itself is pretty mesmerizing. We stopped for a late lunch on the way back to Cusco at the same place, which was delicious! Drop off back in Cusco was super easy! Overall, had an awesome time!

The pickup did not show up -> No Trek.
I booked with tripadvisor on a short notice, but they had a working day time and failed to give any feedback.

If you choose to go with Mapi Travel always call to get confirmation.

Excellent hike
Dec 2019
The hike is moderate with the last half hour a bit more steep. If you don't feel up to it, there is a horse "taxi" waiting to take you up for 80 soles. Once you get up there and you are lucky enough to have a sunny day, the view is very much worth the effort. We got glimpses of the background mountain through the cloud patches in December.

Trek to Humantay Lake
Excelente trip. The hike can be strenuous due to altitude unless in top shape. There are horses to help all the way up. A wonderful must do.

What the f?
This company is the WORST. No communication. Came to pick me up 3 days before my actual tour. After I was accidentally picked up, they dropped me up in random place to take a taxi back with my own money. How is this a tour company? AVOID!

Dear, What you are saying here is not the truth and you know that! We expect a bit more decency from your part to delete this bad review. We have sent proves to you that this is not true and you still have not deleted this. Also, could you explain how could someone get inside a van during down to go to a tour in a day you do not have it? How could you be prepared, with your bag, clothing and everything else so early in the morning. (Our pick ups for Humantay Lake are from 03:30 to 04:30 am). We have everything prepared and organized. We know what days each customer has their tour and everything else. We kindly ask you, one more time, to delete this bad review.

The tour was well coordinated. I had a great time and took some fantastic photos! Just be aware that the altitude is a bit high, and you might feel the fatigue kick in, but they had horses to mount on for a fee.

Glad to know you had a great time despite the altitude problem. We understand that can not be easy but once you reach the top you know it was all worth it. Right? Take care!

Unreliable
This company is not reliable. They canceled our trip last minute and did not let us know until we called an hour later after we were supposed to be picked up. Then they want us to pay cash and be picked up way later than what we are supposed to. Their excuse was that they tried to confirm in the middle of the night of the same day of the hike and we did not answer. Extremely unreliable, will never use again.

Dear, We are very sorry but we did tried communicating with you to let you know we would not run the tour since you had not confirmed with us that you would attend to the tour. We left a bunch of emails on your box. Our company organized everything. We tried to communicate with you but we did not receive a response from your part. We are really sorry but we did everything we could and it cannot work out if it does not come from both sides. We hope you have understood that we did not fail on you but you on us and now you are accusing us. That is sad!

Very well done! Worth the time and money. Thanks Freddie!!
We did the day hike to Humantay Lake... and it was a very well done tour. Absolutely loved it. They pick you up at your hotel, and then drive about two hours in a nice, well maintained van. Breakfast is included at a very charming venue... then off to Humantay Lake (another hour or so of driving).

Guides were excellent, food was great, and the lake itself is stunning. The hike isn’t too long/hard... but you can rent a horse if you like.

One of the highlights of our trip. Thanks Freddie and the whole group of guys! If you’re on the fence, do this tour!

Well organized trip with a nice guide. Really good breakfast and lunch at a cozy restaurang.
The hike was a bit challenging, but you get to do it at your own pace. You also can rent a horse to get up (80 soles). We did The hike pretty fast so we had lots of time att The lake. The lake is really beautiful! It was a really nice Day trip.
