“Fantastic Experience”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

The Inca Trail is good, not at too high of an altitude and very easy to follow. However, beware of the vast drops and narrow paths.

If you want a challenge complete the Lares (Inca) Trails which are high altitude and steep. You will also met the Andes mountain communities and not be overcrowded with tourists. I would recommended completing Lares route with a professional expedition operator.

“One day hike... rewarding!”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

We went on a one day hike (7 miles) with Intense Peru. We had five people in our group with a trusty tour guide. I would recommend being in moderately good shape to do this hike since there are a LOT of steps and you feel like your legs will want to give out on you. However, the views of the mountains and Inca ruins are spectacular.... we took the Inca Express train from Sacred Valley and were dropped off at Chachabamba to start the hike! You need to bring your passport (can get it stamped), sunscreen, HAT, water and snacks!

“Great Experience for Adventure+History on a Budget”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

I have never gone camping and was very pleased with this experience. For anyone like myself who takes pleasure in physically trying tasks and history this is a a go to vacation. I did the 4 day trail and felt amazing to be able to have hot breakfast, lunch, and dinner in the Andes mountains especially after hiking for several hours. The second day of the Inca trail is literally walking up steep steps for hours, but the view afterwards is amazing. The 3rd day is almost a reverse of the 2nd day so get ready for using your walking poles and protecting your knees downhill. The final day going to Machu Picchu was by far the easiest and had the greatest photo opportunity. The entire trail was great for meeting new people, feeling accomplished, and getting great photos all for a very reasonable price. Any people interested in adventures on a budget should seriously consider.
