“A great expedition”

Owner description: This is the most popular tour that we offer and there is good reason for it. When this tour was created, it was with the adventure seekers in mind. This tour is kind of like the Inka Trail ‘revamped’, but with the same pay off at the end: The glorious Lost City of the Inkas.

A really amazing trek, a lot of things in mind, beautiful sceneries, Quechua magic, historical background, everything was there to have the best experience in visiting Machu Picchu, and special thanks to Ronald, our guide, with whom we spend great moments between and during our visits. Really a great experience!!!!

We absolutely loved the jungle trek and our group. We adored Oscar who was one of the guides. The biking is amazing but I don't think the safety gear was over kill as some people have stated. It definitely could be dangerous without all of the helmets, pads etc. The hiking is long and difficult and on very steep/ narrow paths and cliffs. I had read it was very basic but I definitely think you should be in pretty good shape. Also there are lots of little expenses alOng the way so plan on bringing about $50/ person extra. Overall great though and once in a life time!!

From the time we left Cusco to our return four days later, we had a fantastic and long term memorable time, I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Lorenzo Expeditions to anyone considering such a trip.
The guides treated us all with consideration and thoughtfulness,and were very knowledgeable on all aspects of the journey.
Many thanks to Juan Carlos for scaring the life out of me jumping out of the jungle near the hot springs, ( nearly got him with my stick)
Thanks to Bruno, for waiting for me on the steeper sections,and Eder for helping me finish my packet of cigarettes well done chicos!!!!!
And lastly Lorenzo, for offering such a good service, great accommodation ,logistics, and equipment.
P.S. Machupicchu wasn't too bad either, I'd love to go back when its finished!!!!!!

I went with Lorenzo Expeditions on the Inca Jungle Trail, as the regular Inca Trail was booked way in advance and I was perfectly happy with my choice.

The office agents were helpful and polite, even refunding a large portion of one of our tickets that we needed to cancel at the last minute. I took off on this journey with Juan Carlos, an enthusiastic, intelligent guide just beaming with positivity. The itinerary was wonderful - beginning with a vigorous downhill bike ride, followed by two days of trekking through the jungle (a breeze for any avid hiker, but still challenging enough to keep you interested) and ending with the beauty of Machu Picchu.

The food during the trip was delicious and at times had me questioning how it was even possible to create such great dishes given the circumstances. The lodging started out fine and ended quite nice.

All in all, an excellent choice for your Machu Picchu adventure.

Basically we can just confirm all other previous excellent reviews. However we would like to point a few facts out, whicht we think are mentionable:

> Very fast responding via E-Mail before the Trip answering questions (although the answers were sometimes a little too short) --> You have to book your train back from Aguas Caliente to Cusco by yourself and this can be a little challenging due to departure dates and to know how muuch time you want to spend on Machu Picchu after the end of the official tour

> A lot of details and helpful information (what clothes to bring, etc.) about the trip in the office

> First day: Breakfast at Lorenzo's Place (yes, it's really his house), we highly appreciated to get to know Lorenzo before starting the trip and had a nice breakfast to start a long day --> Lorenzo and all of his staff speaks perfectly English and are extremly friendly and helpful and you get a free T-Shirt (you can even choose the color)

> Guide Wilbert Santa Cruz --> If you can arrange your departure date to go on the trip with Wilbert DO IT! He was the best Guide we had during our 8 months of travel and several tours. Very knowlegeable, passion and he really lives what he says. He took 24 hours a day care of us and even helped in the kitchen to provide us the food faster and better (just at his own high standard). Wilbert was flexibel all the time (also with our individual wishes) and never in a hurry. Our safety was most important to him. He's charming, funny and it's impossible not to like him!

> Food: Lunch and Dinner always Salad, Soup, Maincourse, Dessert. It started with a very yummy Lunch the first day which we didn't expect to be that delicious and ended with a Gourmet-Meal the last day, which was prepared in a jungle-kitchen

> Accomodation: The promised us 2 of 3 nights a private-room (matrimonial) and we ended up having all 3 nights a private room with private bath. All rooms very clean and comfortable.

We were very happy that we chose Lorenzo Expedition and would highly recommend this trip to everybody else!
