It's taken me a little over a week to sit down and write this. Not even sure where to begin. First and foremost our guide Jhimmy, cook Gabino and Ramon, and porters deserve many many applause.

This trip has been a dream of mine for five years. Our guide Jhimmy, was so very wonderful. The first two days were HARD for me. And I'm well aware, that I'm not always the most fun to be around when I pushed to my physical limits. However, Jhimmy was encouraging, appropriately funny, and got me to Salkantay Pass! The small group of us (4 tourists + Jhimmy) allowed us ALL to benefit from his vast knowledge of the landscape, flora, fauna, and Quechuan culture. He also seemed to know everyone!

When we said goodbye to Jhimmy at Machu Picchu, I started crying. I know these guides take clients on this trail week after week. But for me, this was a dream come true. A once in a life time experience. I hope the guides, cooks and porters know they are doing meaningful, life changing work. Highly recommend this trip to anyone who can put one foot in front of another. What a great way to experience landscapes and cultures of Peru not accessible by car. Or at least not easily!

We had a great time on the tour, and our guide Jhimmy and the chef Braulio really made it special!

Jhimmy was friendly, thoughtful and always looking out for us to make it as an enjoyable experience as possible. He is hugely passionate and knowledgeable about the landscape and Inca culture, and also liked to get involved with the group and have a laugh!

We were never left hungry nor disappointed after any meal, with Braulio going above and beyond to constantly surprise us with the food he brought out.

10/10 tour!

We did A LOT of research before booking this trek and were more than satisfied with our experience. Prior to booking we used WhatsApp (plus one phone call) to ask tons of questions and Ruth always responded immediately. (As a side note, I had a medicine that needed to be kept cold and Ruth kept it safe for me in her own personal fridge at home). We stayed in Conde House (their hostel) the night before the trek which made it really easy for our morning pickup, and our guide Carlos met us there the night before to go over logistics. The hostel is decent at best, but worth it for 1 night for the convenience. I cannot say enough good things about our guide, Carlos. He's enthusiastic, energetic, organized, focused and on top of every single detail. For us, there were no surprise extra charges. He told us before the trek when we would need to pay for a bus ride (10 soles) and for baggage transfer one day (5 soles). We also needed to buy water a couple times (8 soles) but we didn't mind at all due to the reasonable price of this trek compared to others. We opted not to do zip lining which was no problem at all. Carlos picked us up from the hostel when the group was done. I highly recommend the hot springs, they are very clean and relaxing, worth it! In the rainy season, be ready to be wet and muddy, but for us it was nice having less crowds and mosquitos. I could have used warmer gloves because my hands got quite chilly, otherwise I was fine with pants, long sleeves and rain jacket. Bring a warm fleece for evening. The food was excellent the entire time, they even serve snacks before dinner with popcorn, cookies, and tea. We made great memories and have incredible pictures to treasure!

An absolutely amazing experience! Our guide Jhonathan is the best, from the minute I asked him some questions before the trip, to his follow though days after the trip, I’d rate this as of if the best trips, and very affordable too! The cooks were outstanding, we had such delicious food, and even with great presentation, especially considering they have very little to work with when on the go like they are. Saltankay trek is a must do- There were so many microclimates we went through, including canyons and valleys, mountain lakes (Humatay), hiking by mountain glaciers, walking through/over streams and creeks. The scenery is nothing less than incredible.

My girlfriend and I did the Salkantay Trek. Lake Houmontay was absolutely amazing. Our guid Johnny made our trip absolutely amazing. He fixed my bag on the fly when it broke, and he was extremely knowledgeable. When I return to Peru, i will definitely ask for him.

We absolutely loved this experience!! The service was great, the food amazing (thanks to our talented cook who followed us during the treck) and the beauty of the landscapes were indescribable. We had Walter Ccoto as a guide and he was the best ever! He took the time to explain the traditions, the religion, the plants, etc. He let us have our own pace during the hike, he played cards with us at night, and was always thoughtful. I even had a cake made by the cook because my birthday was during the trek. We were never disappointed by the company. The program for the 5 days was perfect, with the hardest days at the beginning and then activities (ziplining, hot springs) for the last days. It was so good to visit the Machu Picchu for the last day, however it wouldn’t have been the same experience if we didn’t do the trek before. So we recommend 100% this trail.
As for the altitude, we didn’t feel unwell (expect the short breathing) but we arrived in Cusco 3-4 days in advance especially to get used to it. And if you feel unwell, the guides always have coca leaves to help you with the altitude.

This trek had everything: beautiful views, comfy tent accommodations at night, delicious meals, and wonderful company. My partner and I have never done a group trek before, but this went beyond our expectations and by the end we created great memories and made new friends :) it was nice to have a mix of both hard hiking and chill time (like doing a mini coffee demonstration and relaxing in hammocks and eating granadilla!)

Shoutout to our tour guide Jonathan who checked in on us throughout the hike (I was having some trouble with altitude sickness!), shared fun stories, and led us through some meaningful Incan rituals. He was also super helpful in helping the group navigate the Peru Rail strikes so that we could all get back to Cusco. And lastly, shoutout to the cooks for making us such phenomenal meals while we were out there on trail! We never ate the same thing twice :O

I can't recommend this trip enough, it was unreal!!! I was so lucky to have the best group and we all got on so well together. Our Instructor Jhonatan (Jonny) was the best instructor ever, we were very lucky to get to spend five days with him - his knowledge about the Incas and nature was amazing to learn and I was able to practice my Spanish alot by talking to Jonny who has a lot of patience. The scenery on the walk was very very special, every day was completely different - from snow capped mountains and minus temperatures to hot jungles, Salkantay truly has it all! And I also need to give a special shout-out to our two cooks to cooked us 5star meals 3 times a day! I don't know how they cooked such amazing dishes with very little resources at every campsite, I am honestly in awe. They looked after us very well. Advice for doing the Salkantay is have lots of warm clothes for the first night as it can get very very cold. The walk itself is challenging but vale la pena para todos, it's do able for everyone.

Once again I want to thank Jonny our instructor for just being the best instructor ever, I will miss you alot (if I could I would do the trip all over again in a heartbeat)

Gracias por todo Conde!!

Great tour and brilliant experience. Jhimmy our guide was kind, funny and knowledgeable. A pleasure to spend 5 days with him.

The chef and food were incredible through out- some of the best food I've had in Peru.

Well organised trip, ideal small group, would definitely recommend.

Thanks Jhimmy and team.

The actual trek was good. Howncan you go wrong hiking in the Andes and visiting Machu Picchu. They fed us a ton and the food was good. Tent mats (2 nights) were thin and not comfortable, hostels (2 nights) were private rooms with private baths- better then expected. The three stars is due to poor communication and poor prepping of expectations. This caused some discomfort and disappointment the was unnecessary. First, I was contacted via what’s app text after booking which was great. But after the Initial contact there was no more response. I texted three times asking for a packing list prior to leaving my home and never got a response. I did not know what to bring, how cold it would be etc. once in Peru prior to trek I met with a rep about the trip (they do this for everyone). I opted not to do the “tourist trap” options of hot springs and zip lining. I was there to hike the Andes not do Disneyland gimmicks. I knew I would walk 10k extra in not zip lining but they never told me it would be on my own without a guide walking down a narrows dirt road with tour busses. I expected to walk on a trail with guide. They also did not tell anyone that the bag service ended after day 3. The mules carried your extra belongings only 3 days. The last two day YOU have to carry it all or pay someone to take it to the next stop. So I carried (lucky for me I had the right backpack that could expand) 35# 20k on day 4. Why didn’t I pay a few soles to have someone take it for me? Well I didn’t have enough cash. I asked about what I needed money for and they said snacks and water and 1-2 meals on our own. I asked if we could fill water bottles at camp and night and he said sure. Water at camp was for tea not filling 2 liters of water bottles per person in the group. You have to buy bottled water daily, you have to buy or bring your own toilet paper, you are expected to tip your staff (2cooks, mule porter guy, guide), you should have money to pay to send your bags on day 3&4. I had no idea about these extras and not taken all that into account and ran out of money. There is not money exchange options until day 4 and then the rates are awful. They were a lot of incidental expenses that popped up I had no idea about- I expected an all inclusive trek. Though none of the expenses was huge, they all added up. There were more things that I did not list including paying for a bus up and down at Machu Picchu if you do not hike it. On the 7 hour bus ride home there was not an option to get dinner. We stopped once for bathrooms and there was a place for snacks but not real food. So bring food if you take the bus back. I left Machu Picchu around noon and hiked back to hydroelectric to catch bus and got back to Cusco at 10pm and was wishing I had brought a sandwich with me.
