It's without a doubt an amazing pilgrimage but it will wear you down some. If you are in marginal shape or older I recommend looking at a 5 to 7 day trek, enjoy the scenery and the beauty without the long days!

Do the hike! The whole hike, for 4 days and 3 nights you'll be able to imagine what it must have been like to be an explorer and happen across incredible Incan ruins and gasp in awe at the brilliance of the structures. Phenomenal experience

We did the Amazon to the Andes and a Galapagos visit with G Adventures for our holiday, and the Inca Trail was a highlight. It was challenging at times, especially on the second day. And while I really had to push myself to get to the top, I would definitely do it again if I had the chance. As part... More

I only had one they there, that is my only regret... It´s beautiful and impressive... the guides are very nice and proud of there history. But wear comfortable shoes, repellent and sun block. Be prepared to hike a little and if you are using the bus be there early because there is a long line. But in the end is... More

A real physical challenge, but so very rewarding all at the same token. The whole trek and not just Machu Picchu at the end was outstanding. We really need to give a big pat on the back to Uncover Latin America, the company we booked our trek with. Their level of service was top notch, from our initial phone call... More

We did the 4 day classic and The trail was not easy but manageable for anyone with a moderate fitness level. The altitude did catch us off guard and we struggled but luckily we had factored in a few days in Cusco to acclimatize. We hired porters for our baggage and would highly recommend doing this if you are contemplating... More

The trail up to Machi Picchu is stunning, there are two ways up for the fitter take the sun dial (the way we went). The views are worth it and the trail is beautiful

I travelled with my family of four using G Adventures who were brilliant. The trek was challenging but I would say that someone of moderate fitness and mobility could complete it. About 11 kilometres each day but all up and down. The altitude was difficult. Up to 4000 meters at dead woman's pass which made most of us feel a... More

Walking the Inca trial was an amazing experience. We travelled with llama travel from the uk who use condor travel as their local agents, the guys at condor were truly 5 star thought and highly recommended. My main suggestions for the trail are to pack light and hire walking sticks even if you think you wont need them they make... More

We visited the inca trail to Macchu Picchu in July 2016. Not one drop of rain the entire 4 days which was perfect as some of the rocky steps would have been nasty in the rain. We went with Adventure Peru, who on the porters above award wages (a big thing for us as they work incredibly hard!). Our tour... More
