This is a must if you are travelling to Peru. We did the four day three night classic Inca Trail trek and would thoroughly recommend. We are not seasoned trekkers, we don't hike at all at home- we found this trek challenging at times but manageable. An incredible array of scenery, a highlight of our trip.

My wife and I did the 4 day 3 Night trek and it was an experience of a life-time. You will see many Inca ruins and hike through a very diverse ecosystem. It's not easy, but so worth it! Our guide was Ruben Quispe Quispe and he did an excellent job. I highly recommend using an indigenous owned and operated... More

We walked up the trail that starts at the bottom of Aguas Calientes. It takes 90 minutes to 2 hours. Make sure to prepare yourself because there is much more walking to do when you reach the top.

This was a truly great experience. We were with an excellent guide and blessed with a wonderful group of co-travelers. A word to the wise do not under estimate the second day.

We hiked the four day Inca Trail in December 2016. While challenging, the hike was definitely achievable. It's not a race and we never felt rushed. Just take it slow and steady and you will be just fine :) The scenery along the way is just incredible: snow capped mountains, misty valleys and Inca ruins. The scenery on the third... More

I guess I don;t need to write much. We took the two day short hiking trip (instead classic 4 day). It's a up and down 14 Km trail, more ups than downs. The mountain scenary and ruins were touchingly beautiful. When we reached Sun Gate and saw the Machupicchu city from afar, you understood that this was indeed a sacred... More

A must do in Peru. Trekked for 4 days along Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. The best experience ever! Be careful which company you choose to go with - they are not all the same in terms of treatment of staff & you. We went with Intrepid (Peak) & were blown away by how we were looked after. The trail... More

If you are contemplating whether to do the inca trail....just do it. It isn't easy but you'll totally feel proud of yourself after you finish. Listen to your body, it's not a competition. Slow and steady wins the race. Go for it. If you are thinking this will be a way to lose weight... think again especially if you go... More

I must say this was very exhausting but worth it at the end, if you're planning on doing this make sure you prepare by going to the gym or walking lots, do the stair master or find some stairs to go up for a long time (maybe do two at a time as macchu picchu has long steps) try doing... More
