I did the 4D/3N Inca Trail with Alpaca Expeditions and loved every minute of it! The trail itself was amazing, but got even better with the help of the lovely Alpaca crew, with the guides and porters. And the food was amazing, especially the pancakes for breakfast. The guides had a lot of knowledge and also created a great team spirit and support! I loved this trip and would gladly go with Alpaca again :)

My friends and I just had a wonderful spring break in Machu Picchu, Peru. Javier Aranzabal was our awesome guide who toured us all the way to Machu Picchu and amazed us with intriguing stories about the Inca Empire. He is very considerate, humorous, friendly and patient. We had so much fun hiking and learning about Inca's history and culture. I would rate this trip 10/10 and look forward to doing the 4D/3N if I have the opportunity to visit Peru again!

Alpaca Expeditions provided an incredible bucket list experience for my father and I. From the beginning, they were great about answering my questions through email. Our guides, Yoel and Elio, were incredible, provided interesting facts about the sites along the way and provided much needed motivation when I was struggling physically. There are not enough words to describe how impressive the porters were, a literal Green Machine. They carried our equipment and everything needed to set up camp while running the trail. The chef Alex was incredible and there was always more than enough food. He even catered to multiple dietary restrictions within our group and had a special surprise for us on the last night. Overall, this was an incredible experience, our group was great, and I'm thankful to Alpaca Expeditions for providing this experience.

I travelled from Ireland to meet my cousin and some friends. I had no idea what I was getting myself in for.
We had two guides, Ronald S & Robinson. They started as guides and 12 other gringos, we all went home as family. They went above and beyond to make sure all 13 of us in the group had everything we needed and encouraged us every step of the way (and there are a lot of steps!!)
Rodger was the cook along with Marcin as sous chef. They made the most amazing food every day for lunch and dinner. And boy do you need the food!
All the porters were amazing and even though we had a language barrier, they were super!
I would highly recommend Alpacha Expeditions for this trip. (Ask for Ronald & Robinson & Rodger & Marcin!) bring me too!!
