This was truly the adventure of a lifetime we booked with Explore Adventures if you want to Hike Inca trail to Machupicchu you want to be sure that they are taking good care of you. And they did an excellent job! Perfect gear as tents, sleeping bags and toilet (other Agencies they don't provide private portable toilets but for Explore Adventures is different they provide with no extra cost) The food was also amazing we are vegetarian and the cook never ceased to amaze us how he could bring out such tasty food from a tent, each day was a variety of organic and delicious dishes. Each morning we were served hot drinks in bed, followed by warm water to wash, then breakfast. I would highly recommend Explore - we had an epic adventure!! Thank you Explore Adventures

I went through Explore Adventures based on a friend's recommendation and I was not disappointed at all. I made the best decision by choosing them. Could not recommend Explore Adventures Peru highly enough. Ruben and his team are supremely professional, personable and excellent at what they do. Drivers, Chefs, porters and team were incredible, caring people that made our journey more than just a vacation, they're a local company that providing outstanding service and ethical treatment of porters and guides. I would 100% recommend Explore Adventures to anyone looking for great service with a big smile

We did the 5 day trek around the Ausangate trek. The last day we trekked around the Rainbow Mountain plus red valley and it was amazing! The views are just amazing,
When we visited (june 02) it was very cold and there was a lot of wind. Some places it was very hard to keep standing. So dress wisely and bring a had and gloves the scenery, the wildlife and the local Quechuas people will make it a hike that you will never forget. The equipment and meals were excellent. The hiking was challenging and full of adventure. The food was tasty and plentiful with organic local dishes added. Our guide Ruben was the best! Extremely knowledgeable with enthusiasm.
I loved this trip and highly recommend this company! definitely hike with Explore Adventures Peru again.

I have no words to describe how wonderful it is to make the “Inka Trail” 4 days something fabulous full of challenges, experiences the views of wonderful landscapes, the magic and the history that there is in that place is something Amazing. With all my heart and honestly I want to give all the credit to “Explore Adventures” if I have to rate them I give them % up because they are a fabulous company with an excellent guide “Rubén” with a knowledge of the Andean culture and proud of Being part of that was what fascinated me, his knowledge is wonderful and really brings the whole history of that place to life. “Explore Adventures” has a profesional professional team with a big heart. The food they offer on the trip is Gourmet really that surprised me a lot because I imagined it super simple but the truth "Melquiadez" and his assistants are the maximum cooking. The spacious sleeping tents excelente an excellent "North Face" quality of all the groups that we saw only we had good quality in all things of the camp from the portable bathroom to the sleeping envelopes. DO NOT hesitate to do this adventure! A unique experience! But don't forget to book early with “Explore Adventures”
I congratulate Ruben Quispe and all his team for their great work and Thank you Thank you for everything Lived and learned!
Blessings!

My friend and I found the Explore Adventures Peru staff amazing. Value for money with good equipment amazing food.
Our Guide Ruben was incredibly on the trip, he was knowledgable and accommodating to all the different trekking abilities in our group. the conversation with Ruben certainly made the experience that much better. The Porters and staff on the andes were very courteous and made sure that everything was prepared upon our arrival in camp every day, these individuals are incredibly hard-working and we couldn't have been successful without them.
Overall, it was the best experience I could have hoped for with an adventure trekking company. Explore Adventures Peru dedication to the customer service experience can't be overstated.
If you're looking for an outfitter to for your next Machu Picchu adventure I couldn't recommend this company more if you're deciding whether or not to take on Inca Trail (definitely do it, it's an absolutely incredible experience). Thank you so much Explore Adventures Peru!
