I had very high expectations for our 4d Inca trail-trip with Wayki and they were easily exceeded!! Fantastic organisation, staff and food and great equipment. And our guide Franklin was super. They also make a big thing out of taking care of their porters which was important to us. Yes, Wayki is expensive but it was worth every penny. They... More

We did the 4 day Inca Trail trek. Our guide was Jesus/Chachi. There were only four in our group with our guide and another group of 7 was with us with a different guide (so we saw them during meals and at the campsite). It was really important for us that it was a small group so you really felt... More

This was the highlight of our month long trip in Peru. Wayki Trek's organisational skills (having booked directly from NZ) were fantastic and the communication second to none. We also did the 'Wayki experience' the day before the trek which was a wonderful thing to do (and is included in the price). We drove out to one of the villages... More

Thank you so much for your great review! We are very glad you had such a wonderful experience. And you are very right- spending a couple of days in Cusco to acclimate beforehand is very important, as you never know how the altitude will affect you. Thank you again for traveling with us!! More

We booked this tour from U.S.A to this local company directly. Their booking process was well structured and accurate. I hope that they can accept credit cards in payment soon. The Inca trail itself was doable and enjoyable thanks to the devoted porters, cooks and guides. Cha-Chi, our guide was a fun character, yet he really takes care of guest... More

This was a great trek! We were short of time but really wanted to trek some of the Inca trail and this was perfect! About 5/6 hours of hiking past waterfalls and WinayWayna the 1st day arriving through the sun gate and down to Machu Picchu, 2nd day spent exploring the site. I was quite sick for the trip and...

Our group of nine friends could not have been more impressed with the Wayki team on our four days on the Inca Trail. Our guides, Lino and Cristian, were very knowledgeable throughout the hike and were very good at managing the different hiking paces within the group. The cooks did an amazing job preparing delicious meals for us, and the... More

This was a remote trek from Haurocondo to Ollantaytambo over Acocasa pass at 15,000 ft, then a train trip up to Machu Picchu. The guide was a local person who knew the areas very well. He paid close attention to all of the details. The equipment was in very good order, and they accommodated vegetarian food for us.

We did the 5-day Salkantay Trek as a group of four (myself, my friend, and our mothers) with Wayki Trek, and the entire trip was amazing. Wayki was incredible, and I have no complaints.
