Our trip was just amazing! The whole experience was unforgettable and we tell as many people as we can. The experience of taking the 5-day salkantay tour with this agency is unique. We had the best porters, chef and guide Richard. They worked very hard for us and did the 5 fantastic day trek with lots of stories and new friends. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience that we were able to tick off our bucket list. Thank you salkantay trekking for making it so memorable!

Must of been one of the most challenging treks I have done so far but was amazing ! Carlos our guide was the best as he took good care of us, was knowledgeable and really gave us the positive energy we needed in order to keep going! Would definitely recommend the experience as you get to see the Andes, the team is very organized, there was plenty of local food and many many stories to share :)

This is a long overdue review, we went on a 4 day trek to Machu Picchu with Freddy Zapata as our guide last year. It was honestly the most fantastic experience. My partner is quite fit, I would say I had a medium level of fitness, but 0 experience trekking or being at altitude and had felt a bit nervous before we went. But Freddy is a great guide and there were others in our group with a similar fitness level so it was nice to find someone your speed and trek together. It was an unforgettable experience and I’m so glad we got to do it, and feel so lucky we had Freddy as our guide!!! We also used salkantay trekking to do a rainbow mountain trek- which was also a great and well organised experience.

I along with my friend group visited the Salkantay trek in February, 2020. We had booked a 4 days Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu tour. We did the Salkantay trek to visit Machu Picchu and it was one of the best experiences of my life. All the landscapes were mesmerizing. The camp and the Peruvian classic food was just awesome. Our service provider offered us with First-rate equipment, professional guides and personalized services for your unforgettable trekking holiday in Peru. Our hiking trip across the salkantay pass was fantastic. We could trek, run and bike the trail, took the high route and challenged ourselves with some mountaineering. We also tried the lower route and walked the trail visiting the welcoming and warm villages on the way.
