We did the 4-day Inca trail with this amazing team. This company was highly recommended by our friends who did the trek a few years ago. Jose was very helpful, replied to messages promptly and answered all our questions. Our guide Ronal was excellent not only in terms of telling the background history of the many Inca sites, but he also taught us about many medicinal plants, orchids, and birds found along the trail. Our chef Victoriano cooked delicious meals (more food than we could eat). The work the porters do is outstanding - and their speed impressive! Overall great experience, would choose this company again and recommend to friends. Jose also organized a trip for us in the sacred valley the day after our hike, even suggesting a later start time to give us time to rest - very considerate.

We were recommended Jose Condor from Peru by Locals by a local friend. Amidst the sea of tour companies, we found their website to be more modern and comprehensive. They did not stand to disappoint. Jose guided us through the 2 day inca trail and it was the best experience we've ever had. While it was more expensive than some of the other companies we looked into, we felt like Jose's knowledge and stories stood out on the trip. It was a smooth trek and the only bump we encountered was running out of water (we recommend bringing 2-3 litres of water per person at least!). We felt comfortable with Jose's professionalism that we even contacted him to help us organise our Rainbow Mountain hike in Cusco.

It’s been my life long dream to visit Machu Picchu and Peru by Locals made this experience unforgettable!! Jose was incredibly helpful and patient from the beginning to the end! Our tour guide, Ronald, for the 2 day Inca trail was also absolutely amazing - he walked at our pace and his knowledge of Machu Picchu was outstanding! Highly recommendable!!

This was an amazing experience. Our family included young children, teenagers, parents and grand parents. This experience was the height of our Peru trip. We had an opportunity to meet the kind hard working natives of Peru, and experience their daily life style and customs. I was expecting a camping experience but instead we had comfortable beds, delicious food and memorable experiences. The women demonstrated how they color their yarns and their weaving. They had beautiful works of art. The best part was our guide Jose Condor. He was a wealth knowledge. His English was outstanding. He showed us so many places we would have missed.Take your cameras because the pictures are amazing.

We have been visiting Peru with my friend and did the Inka Trail with Edgar from Peru by locals. It was truly an unexpected experience we lived within those 4 days spent in the mountains. Our guide Edgar was very knowledgeable, full of energy and good vibes. He always encouraged us keep going. We were very surprised by the superb quality of the food, Martin is an amazing cook! We wish to go back and would do it again, even with the one million stairs. We can only recommend to trip with Jose and Edgar from Peru by locals, an Experience to live!! Thank you, Peace & Love Dóri & Hanna
