We chose this excursion because the Inca Trail expeditions we were considering had been sold out. Fortunately, this trip turned out better than we could have imagined. We booked it through the Bioandean Expeditions agency (excellent provider by the way) made this a great trip by providing excellent customer service throughout the trip. Our tour guide "Angel" was amazing and gave us an in-depth tour of the Andean region with historical, cultural and botanical insights. We also had a personal chef "Jefferson" who cooked us fantastic Peruvian dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This was a great hiking experience. You will need a couple of days to acclimatize in Cusco before hitting the ground. It is suitable for both beginners and more experienced hikers. The second day is the most challenging as you start at 3800m (second camp), go through the Salkantay pass at 4630m, and then walk to the third camp 2800m. In general, you will see beautiful landscapes that go from the field, the mountain to the jungle.

The experience with Bioandean Expeditions was magnificent, highly recommended, from the day before in the meeting, which he explained to us step by step. I really enjoyed the whole hike, met some great people and our guide Jeremi was the wave. Always attentive to our needs, he helped us enjoy the experience, lots of laughs with the whole group. Rainbow Mountain is a magical, amazing and incredible place! It is very worth going, the walk lasts about 4 hours, the height is 5,100 at the top, it can affect your height a lot, go prepared, take a lot of water, sweets, fruit, coca leaves and everything that can help you acclimatize. Once at the top it is wonderful and worth all the work in the world, if you go make sure you go all the way!

It was my first tour of the trip with less than 30 hours of acclimatization. The climb was heavy, fast beats, breathing hard, but it's all worth it when you reach the top! We did it with the agency Bioandean Expeditions, it is a great company and the team from beginning to end and they are exceptional, you will not regret having booked with this company. It leaves at 7:00 a.m. It takes 2 hours to reach the foot of the mountain. Narrow road, on the cliffs, winding curves, We made a stop for breakfast included in the tour and returned to the same place. The climb starts at 3800M and goes up to 4200M, it is quite incredible. About 2 hours uphill, then 1:30 to get off. Return to the hotel around 5pm. We sunbathed on the road and it rained on the way back. So be sure to bring sunscreen, glasses, raincoat and raincoat!

Together with two friends I booked the Salkantay 5D/4N trek through BioAndean expeditions. All in all we've had a great experience. The explanation provided to us in advance was very clear. They've also helped us beyond the basic booking of the Salkantay trek. We wanted to climb Huayna Picchu as well and stay in Machu Picchu all day (the regular tour would leave for the bus at 11am), so they explained the different options to us and in the end booked Huayna Picchu and an evening train for us. On the day that we left there was some confusion though. Apparently not enough people booked with BioAndean so they grouped us with people who booked through Machu Picchu reservations. This was fine, but it would've been nice to know in advance. Now there was some confusion in the morning as to whether we were in the right place. The people who booked with the other company were told a different, later meeting time so we had been waiting from 4:30 to 5:15 before we were finally picked up. Also, they had told us we would receive our sleeping bags the morning of the trek, but since we were now brought to the office of MP reservations we didn't have them. Luckily, our guide Steven in the end got them for us, but it was a bit of a stressful start this way. Finally, on the fourth day apparently the people who booked with MP reservations could choose to do an extra hike that was not part of our booking. While they chose not to do it, for us it felt weird that we didn't even get this choice. Such differences between companies should be communicated better, especially if you group people from different companies together. Even if the extra hike cost more, we might have been willing to pay that money anyway, so in the future we'd advise you to please include everyone in these decisions. Apart from those differences between the two companies we've had an amazing experience though! Apart from the trek being absolutely gorgeous, we felt incredibly lucky with our guide, Steven, who was not only very knowledgeable but also went out of his way to make us feel like a family. He really made sure everyone felt comfortable and he made the whole experience extremely pleasant. In addition, the cooks were amazing! They made so much food and it all tasted amazing. I'm a vegetarian myself and for every meal they prepared a tasty vegetarian alternative to the meat they would serve to the others. All in all it was a very good experience!

My family and I did the hard walk of Ausangate, including the visit to Rainbow Mountain, over 4000 meters high. We did this hike in 6D / 5N. Fortunately, we hire the services of Bioandean Expeditions, as our trekking operator. After doing some research, we contacted Rider, the manager, who organized everything very well for us. We booked this hike a few months in advance and the booking process was very easy and simple, we just completed the reservation form from the website and then made an initial payment through Visa. At first we had distrust and I think it's normal when you book something online. Fortunately, Rider was always serious, precise and kind, clearing all our doubts. The lagoons next to the Ausangate look beautiful and I still can't believe we were the only travelers out there, we only met the locals. We met in a small snowstorm, but we were lucky to seek refuge before. Last but not least, visiting Rainbow Mountain was like a double check. Well organized walk and communication and preparation.
