Alpaca Expeditions is amazing in every way. They walked us through every aspect of the trek in a professional, responsive yet attentive way from booking, to travel tips, to transportation and of course throughout the trek itself. Their lead guide Yoel is the best. His professionalism, knowledge, experience, and genuine care for people was evident from our first meeting all the way through the trek and our return to Cusco. Assistant guides Hari and Romario were equally caring and knowledgeable. All three were also a delight to get to know. Armando, the chef (yes you read that correctly) on the trek was incredible. He could hold his own at any fine restaurant, yet he was feeding us these incredible meals in the middle of the Andes! The porters, led by Roberto were the real heroes. These incredible men took amazing care of us and our equipment. They ensured we had the best camp sites that were well organized. Each day they cheered us onto the trail and cheered us into camp each afternoon. And when they passed us on the trail they greeted us with a smile on their faces. I wish there was a category for six-stars on the Trip Advisor review. Alpaca Expeditions, Yoel, Armando, Hari, Roberto and Romario and the incredible team of porters earned a 6 out of 5.

This trek was the best thing I have ever done in my life. Our guide Tino was wonderful. He was kind, encouraging, informative and very funny! I can’t recommend this trek highly enough, whilst incredibly challenging it is more than worth the hard work and I am already planning my next trip to Peru to return and complete the Inca trail with Alpaca Expeditions!!

We just completed the 5D/5N salkantay trek and it was the most amazing experience of my life. Our tour guide Farastino was incredible, he was so patient and motivating!! The trek is very difficult, especially at first when the altitude is high but the views we saw made it all worth it! The Laguna Hunantay was particularly stunning! Alpaca provided us with fantastic food and accommodation everyday, it was very impressive. Finishing day 5 at Machu Picchu was a highlight, and it felt very rewarding. I would highly recommend Alpaca For any trip in Peru!!

Faustino (Tino) was the most insightful and caring guide we could’ve asked for. The scenery was beautiful and well worth the sore knees!

Our guide Walter was fantastic, and our porter and cook prepared us a fantastic lunch asking the way. Highly recommend Alpaca Expeditions for making everything easy for each individual in the group, they took amazing pictures for us, and we learned so many interesting things about the Incas and the local landscape. The owner was also very responsive and accommodating, I would definitely use this company again.
