We went on the Choquequitao trek with a lovely guide Juan and the excellent cook Aurelio.
The food was excellent, the tour is incredible and our guide was a local from Choquequirao, so he knows everything of this trek!
It really was the highlight of our journey and we recomend you to go on this tour with Quechuas expeditions and ask for Juan!!!

We (group of two people - couple) had an excellent time at the Choquequirao trek. The guide (Juan) was amazing, in organizing as well as the guiding/walking itself. The trek was beautiful and well organised, we never had any problems. The equipement and accomodation (tent as well as hostel in Aguas Calientes) was very good. Also the cook and horsemen were excellent (our cook even baked a cake without an oven!). As so, the food was really good, a large breakfast and 3 courses for almuerzo and cena. The trek itself was awesome, with an apotheose for Choquequirao and Machu Picchu. Juan also provided English guidance, because of our basic Spanish.

We would recommend this experience to anyone with a decent hiking experience and physical condition. And be sure to ask for Juan, because he was an extraordinary guide.

My friend and I did the Salkantay Trek last august with Quechas Expeditions and it was a wonderful experience. During the whole trek, we always had the best camping sites and meals set up. The camping equipment was in very good condition and perfect for the weather. We rented sleeping bags wich were clean and warm.The whole trip was very well organized and everything was always ready for us before we even needed it.

Food was nothing less than amazing! We took the vegetarian option and we had so much more than salads. It was like eating in a restaurant but on a camping site. We always had at least 3 service meals and even a chocolate cake on the last day! We also got a wake up coca tea every morning wich was really appreciated.

Guide and helpers were all very professional and helpful. Ask for the guide named Hugo, he is very knowledgeable about local politics, history, fauna and flora. He is also very funny, took excellent care of us, the kind of person that you don't forget.

We had to delay our departure twice because we both got sick one day apart and they worked very hard to rearrange the trip for us but of course, not without extra fees.

We are very happy we chose Quechas Expeditions for this trek and recommand them without any hesitation.

I visited Peru this summer with a group of 7 friends. This was my first real hike and time out of the country. After thorough research we selected the Quechuas Expeditions and were lucky enough to have Carlos Borda Ramos as our guide. The entire trek was absolutely mind blowing. I can not believe such majestic beauty exists. Our Guide Carlos was awesome as well. He made sure the experience was met to its maximum potential and that we were always comfortable. One of the things I was worried about was the food during the 5 day hike, however, our cook that traveled with us always prepared delicious meals with enough to ensure you were more than full.

A group of seven of us from California decided to plan a trip to Peru. We settled on a four day hike, ending the fifth day at Machu Picchu. Carlos was our guide and he did a fantastic job. He made the hike lots of fun, even when the hike became challenging. Carlos also knew lots of facts along the trail and Machu Picchu to educate us in Incan culture. The food was delicious and they always kept us well feed. We did encounter some rain during our hike, but our belongings that we had transported to camp by horse was dry when we arrived. There was plenty of opportunities to buy snacks and water along the trail which helps put your mind at ease. I would definitely recommend zip lining and hitting up the hot springs, and Carlos coordinated all that for us, so we literally had nothing to worry about. I would definitly recommend Quechuas Expeditions to anyone that is considering a hike to Machu Picchu and requesting Carlos as there guide. All around great experience!
