    The Inkatrail was through its nature and really interesting history so beautiful, I can never ever forget. Best comfort and flexibility on all this trail was given by Trexperience and their porters who did an unbelievable job to us. Especially our every day Breakfast, Lunch, teatime and dinner were another highlight on this trail. Our guide Joyce was as well as the porters always taking care of us.

    Amazing experience from end-to-end. The first day was all about hiking the Inca trail with magnificent views and historic ruins along the route.

    Overall, my husband and myself had a fantastic experience. We were lucky to be the only ones at our group, so we had a guide just for us! This made it very personalised, specially made easier the hike, as we could take the photos we wanted and stop when needed, although for my husband, he would say that the guide was walking too fast. All the activities (cycling, rafting and the zip line) were very well organised, felt very safe and we really enjoyed them. Watch out for the mosquitos! We were eaten despite the repellent. The thermal baths are not included but definitely recommended. The places we stayed overnight were very comfy, clean, had hot showers and the food was also good. If you are a big eater, there are also opportunities to buy snacks and water. Our guide Jaime was brilliant, giving us tips, information, always looking after us, making sure that we were fine and that everything was running smoothly. It is a great four day journey to Machu Picchu!

    The first two days were absolutely incredible. The hikes were challenging and the weather certainly played into that challenge. Day 3 was beautiful going through the rainforest but there was not enough hiking. We hiked about 4 hrs that day and could have continued hiking from where they picked us up by van. The base camp that night was a concrete building with tents set up inside. .. Not what I had in mind for this trip. Not to mention the party that raged far into the night. Our entire group tried to sleep early and could not due to the heavy base. Day 4 most of us went to the optional zip line course, Vertical Zipline, which I highly recommend. Again though the hike to Aguas Calientes was much too short and could have been longer. Our tour was a mix of multiple companies and I think that made it difficult to get organized and give consistent information. Multiple people had issues come up but were resolved. Overall, it was a great experience though and I would recommend it.

Everything was very well organized. Pick-up from the hotel lobby. 1h40 journey by minibus, then 1h30 by train. Then you will arrive in Aguas Calientes where your lovely guide will be waiting for you. You will then go by bus to Machu Pichu. You will take a 2h30 / 3h guided tour of the citadel, or you will be amazed. At the end of the visit, you will descend to the station, where you will have approximately 1 hour of free time. Ideal for a bite to eat or a drink. Then you will board the train for the return trip. The only downside is not being next door on the train. You will be dropped off at your hotel around 8 p.m. A magical day.

Amazing!!! I was left speechless with the beauty of the Wonder of the World! It started with an on time pick up. The trip to the train station was great. The train ride with the panoramic views was perfect. The guides were great from start to finish and Edgar was amazing in explaining the history of this amazing place and setting us up for some great pictures

We had a great day at Machu Picchu. Our guide was very knowledgeable and patient. There was more stairs and uphill climbing than I think we expected so make sure to wear comfy shoes! He made sure we had great photo moments and took good care of the group!

The trip was excellent, the company was incredible because I decided to travel alone and on the tour I met some nice friends. Simply spectacular. Highly recommended

Door to door service. It was a great way to see Machu Picchu. There is a lot of travel but it is well organized. Great guide and drivers.
