We were a group of 7 friends looking for a trekking adventure in the Peruvian Andes and we found Local Trekkers Peru online. Of course we contacted many other companies but Alberto the Manager was the most honest and straightforward guy out of the bunch.

We booked the Classic Inca Trail to Machupicchu with them and was a good choice since everything was perfectly organized.

After everything was set, we arrived in Cusco and the adventure begun. These guys sort all the logistics and all the details for you so that you can just enjoy. We got Raul as our guide for the following 4 days. We also met the porters who were very helpful along the trail Raul, our guide, spoke a fluent english and there were no issues in our communication. We had a somewhat slow start with him, but after a few days we really got along. Very jovial character, had lots of laughs and changed a lot of plans with him. He handled all the logistics for us (eating, camping, etc) and he really pulled it through for us.

I would especially mention the cookman Timoteo, who was in charge of preparing us very delicious andean dishes and at our request we had him prepare a guinea pig, which particulary for me was delicious. Thank you very much Timoteo for you help and for your food. You are the best.

I Highly recommend Local Trekkers Peru, because these guys were very honest from start to finish and held up their part of the bargain.

To conclude I think this small company really deserves to grow as they offer an honest service and leave their clients satisfied.We certainly had a very good time and were very pleased with everything.

My friends and I booked a classic 4 days Inka Trail with Local Trekkers Peru and it was incredibly very well arranged, they were ver helpful throughout the booking and made the whole process a breeze.

During the Trail our guide Hendri was outstanding, we had some great laughs together and he really looked out for us when we got sick. He handled all of the campsites, food orders and found us the best campsites along the way. Always with a big smile and a sense of humour. also he is very well informed about the Peruvian Andes, he always told us some stories about the Incas, once in Machupicchu, he took us to another level with his explanation about this amazing Inca city Thanks Amigo!!!.
Local Trekkers Peru, They take great care of his clients, they provided us with enough porters to make this trip easier, and let me tell you that these guys will take all our admiration since without them none of this amazing experience would have been possible, they were the owners of the show. Also we had enough food for our group very well prepared, tasty and varied, Cristobal our cookman was Fantastic he was always in good mood, thanks to him we don’t worry at all about food, he is a genius.

Finally I can't recommend this company and these guys highly enough. Seriously, look no further.

In 8 days of seeing all of the best that the Cuzco and the Sacred Valley have to offer, our best experience, by far, was the one day hike on the Inca Trail from KM104 to Machu Picchu. Our outstanding Peruvian experience was expertly planned by the amazing team from Peruvian Soul (HIGHLY recommend!). We decided to do the hike at the last minute (instead of taking the train to Machu Picchu) and the Peruvian Soul team got the permits, guides and tickets and made it happen. They wisely recommended 2 guides - one for our very fit four kids ages 19, 18, 16 and 16, and another for mom and dad (ages 57 and 59 and not super hikers). The kids, who grumbled about having to “work” so hard on vacation ultimately loved the experience, supported one another and really bonded on the hike. The parents struggled at times but our incredibly patient guide got us through and we are so grateful that he did. It is definitely NOT easy, but it is doable and so very worth it! We gained a strong connection to majesty of the Inca Trail in a way that can only be accomplished by pushing through it- all the ups, downs, steps and altitude.

We just came back from an amazing experience during the Inca Trail to Machupicchu with the team of Local Trekkers Peru, our guide Lobo, our cook Timoteo and our porters were very helpfull. Lobo has a great knowledge of the environment he could explain us a lot about the mountains, the locals and about the Inca culture, we learned a lot with him. We definitely had a good time and enjoyed the wonderful views during this trekking. Lobo really succeed in giving us the best time of our lives. Timoteo cooked the best meals that we tasted during our stay in Cusco, beautifully decorated and plentiful for everyone in the group. We were 6 people in total, all family. We planned this walk in 2019 to do it in 2020 but with the pandemic, all plans changed radically, but fortunately Alberto, the person behind Local Trekkers Peru He gave us the opportunity to change our travel date for this year 2021 even for the entire year 2022, but we decided to do it this year since we saw that things in Peru and especially in the world are improving. Alberto together with the Local Trekkers Peru Team, did a great job
they really deserve a 5 star rating both for the reservation process, the flexibility of changing the date and for the operation throughout the hike. Do not hesitate to contact them you will not regret!!!.

If you want to forget everything and enjoy your trip, choose Terra Quechua Peru for the Inca Trail (4D/3N). The guides are magnificent, they know the area perfectly and all the stories that are behind each corner, which makes each visit more magical. At all times they have been concerned about us and have shown great flexibility in terms of preferences. In my case, I highlight the fact that they allowed me to get up as early as I wanted and to be the first in all the important points to enjoy the tranquility of the places and to have of course... the best photos!! And on the last day, getting to know Machu Picchu is something incredible, especially when little by little you go deeper into the history of the Inca civilization. As you walk through the ruins, your legs say enough of going up and down steps but your eyes want to appreciate such immensity, so you do not pay attention to the tiredness you may have, it is a wonderful experience

May 19th, 2019, an unforgettable day when I got my feet on long dreamed Inca Trail. Our tour guide Andrew and his team provided our group of 4 a wonderful support, we are still grateful these days. We chose 2d1n trip since our group needed to consider conservatively because of our ages and strength. It's a challenging day, also the day that my dream came true, with no doubt it's the highlight of my adulthood life.

We got up and left hotel about 5am, got to Ollantaytambo station about 6, got off the train at famous KM104 where our journey started, we had simple but nutritious breakfast prepared by alpaca expedition team, then we went on our journey. There are few old Inca ruins on the way, Andrew stopped us and had brief lectures or introductions, we were tested at the end about inca culture if you were caught not paying attention;) we reached Intipunku at 4:00pm, reached top of Machupicchu at 5:00pm, almost missed sunset. I am thinking to do it again sometime later for 4d3n trip.

Well worth a visit, its a bit of a trek to get to Machu Piccu but so worth it for the views and the visit to the historic site. Tours are available on site and you have to pre-book a time slot. There are buses from the town if you don't want to walk the trail and options to walk up/down from town for a shorter hike.
Remember that it is located in a rain forest area so views are not guaranteed!

This trail is daunting but beautiful. Lots of locals along the first day, ruins galore and spectacular views. I highly recommend to anyone interested in hiking. My only cautionary note is that this is a very difficult trail and I would recommend a moderate level of fitness and some advance training

We had a 12 days trip in Peru visiting the most important áreas such as Lima, Arequipa, Puno and Cusco, and we had a great and incredible trekking trip heading to the MachuPicchu through the Classic Inca Trail. We enjoyed the stunning sunrise view on the mountain, as well as the sunsets. Specially we want to thanks to Alberto the Manager of Local Trekkers Peru, for having been very patient answering all our questions and for organizing an adventure that we will always remember. We had an excellent guide Roberto who together with the porters helped us during the whole trek. With their nice advice and helpful information,we had a safe and enjoyable trek within these 4 days until we reach MachuPicchu. We hope to come Peru again and feel the beautiful nature environment by joining other trekking trip from Local Trekkers Peru. Next time maybe the Ausangate Trek. You already know if you want to do the Inca trail to Machu Picchu, Local Trekkers Peru are the best.

Wonderful trek, Great experience! We flew into Peru not knowing what to expect but hoping for the best. And that is what we got! My friends and I are not seasoned trekkers, just a group wanting to enjoy the wonders of Cusco at our own pace.The Local Trekkers Peru reorganized our itinerary to allow us to do this. We have just completed the first part of our holiday, the famous Inka Trail Trek. Our Amazing guide Roberto took great care of us, along with our always smiling porters “Harry, Pulino, Aurelio, Carlos, Rildo and Marcos”, We all learnt a lot about each other and our cultures along the way. Beautiful friendly people, superb scenery, warm and welcoming culture. In 1 year we start our next trek to the highest moutain in Cusco Region the Ausagate also we will do it with the Local Trekkers Peru. Roberto also made suggestions on changes to this trek to make it more enjoyable for us, and we are very pleased he did.Finally, the altitude sickness in Cusco is a huge problem for everyone, but the Local Trekkers Peru team, along with everyone we have met along our way, make a great job of limiting its impact on travellers where possible. Thank you Local Trekkers, Roberto and our Porters for such a fantastic trek, Highly Recommended.
