My sister and I did the 4 day trek which was more than enough. We ended up grouping with a wonderful couple from New York, and had Joel as our guide. This adventure is tough!!! The staff was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and encouraging. The places we stayed at were so cool! A glass igloo, Andean hut, and a hostel in a town below Machu Picchu. We had a chef and every meal seemed to get better and better. From the waking up at 0500 with coca tea, to breakfast, snacks, lunch, tea time, dinner, etc...it was more than we could have asked for. The trek itself was breathtaking and we learned so much about the history of Peru. The altitude and intensity of this trek is no joke, but if you are up for a real challenge (Salkantay pass was over 15,000ft) go for it!! The entire experience was life changing and a must do.

Everything about our trek with Salkantay was 5 stars. Our trek was rescheduled from 2020 due to Covid. Salkantay was always responsive and helpful with our travel arrangements and it was worth the wait. Our guide Wayna meet us the night before to go over all the details and prepare us for our journey. He was one of the most kind and genuine souls I've ever encountered. The accommodations each night were wonderful and the food was amazing. Peru is the most beautiful country and this was the perfect way to experience a little piece of it all. I can't recommend Salkantay enough and hope to return again in a few years to do it all over!!!!!!! THANK YOU FOR THE TREK OF OUR LIVES!!!

My friend and I did the 4 day Machu Picchu + Rainbow Mountain package and had a fantastic time! Our guide Ricardo was very passionate, knowledgeable, and had great spirit. Our driver Martín was always on time and we felt very safe. We were pleasantly surprised, that the hostel in Aguas Calientes was very nice and we had our own bathroom. We had an amazing time seeing the city of Cusco, Incan sites, and other beautiful sites in nature. It is also an amazing price for what is included. We 100% recommend booking with Salkantay Trekking!!!

Had an amazing experience hiking the Salkantay Trek for four days. Our guides Hermo and Javier were top-notch and very professional. They made sure we were well prepared going into every day. They were not only fun to be around but very knowledgeable about Peruvian culture! We also had amazing food and drinks prepared by two world class chefs; talk about the authenticity of the experience! We made friends and memories that will last a lifetime! Could not recommend this trip enough! Javy & Hermo deserve big time raises!

I did the Salkantay 3-day Trek, with Franz as our guide. He was very attentive and informative, and had a great sense of humor. I even forgot my trekking poles at one of the remote locations and the company went above and beyond to get them shipped back to me! Someone in our group also misplaced their cellphone and he was able to get it back for them! I had a great experience and would highly recommend their services if you are ever in the area. It was great to be able to travel again since the COVID-19 restrictions have been in place, and this company made the experience very pleasurable.
