Both trips was amazing. The altitude should not be underestimated to Humantay, but the guide took well care. It is not a long hike, but you should be in good physical shape and plan for a slow ascent. Ride on horseback is an option at Humantay. Machu Picchu was breathtaking. The trip was well organized and pretty flawless with excellent guides. This trip and company comes highly recommended 👌

Our guide John was amazing! He did a great job at communicating everything in both Spanish and English. The buffets were better than we have had on other tours. The hike itself was challenging but so rewarding once you reach the top! If you’re choosing between this and rainbow mountain, I’d choose this one!

The whole trip was great! Starting from the transportation, the van was clean, quite comfortable. The breakfast and lunch were really good and the guide was excellent and very professional! And there’s literally no words to describe Humantay Lake, simply amazing!

Everything according to the plan. Very good organization. This is another trip from this office that I recommend.

It was good. But maybe you should inform that you should wait at least two days in Cusco before doing this hike.
