This was such a wonderful trip. The trial was beautiful and Charly, our tour guide taught us so much about the culture and history of the inka trail and the people of the high Andes, as well as about the flora and fauna. It was amazing! Charly is so wonderful, the best guide we have ever had. Amilcar, the chef was so talented and the food was the best we had in all of Peru! The porters were so kind and helpful. Every staff member made it a wonderful experience! I cannot say enough good things about the crew that was on our trek!

This was such a wonderful once-in-a-lifetime experience with an amazing crew. Would highly recommend both the company Trexperience and our tour guide Charlie.

I had the best solo trip experience ever. our guide, Charley and Merribel both were beyond great! Both knew the local area and history very well to keep our Hike interesting. The other supporting staff like the cooks and porters were great as well. everyone was respectful and helpful. I would highly recommend this company. P.S. - I found it kind of disappointing that our guides couldn't take the dome train with the group to get back to the city at the end. it only make sense if they're are first we meet then they should be the last to see us off as well.

Amazing hike. Difficult but worth the challenge for such breathtaking views.

I had a great experience with trexpierence. My advise is to negotiate hard before accepting a final price and be sure to take care of details and have spoken everything. The service they offer is truly premium, better than other services we saw along the road of other companies. So you are really paying to have everything you need and more. Best food that in Cusco restaurants, best personalized service than in a 5 star hotel. Your only job is to go up and down, take photos, drink water and eat like heaven, with all the confort. Even a hot shower you get from this guys. From the company I can say that the equipment they give is 1st quality and the logistics smooth. From the team that came with us, well, they are really the heroes, and they are hired depending on each tour and not necessarily work for trexpierence, so here is a good idea for you: ask for trexpierence to hire this guys: Magic Chef: Julio Caesar Seus chef: Víctor Waiter: Cirilo Head porter: Agustín and the league of justice Cleaner: José Clown: Alan Kuti Guide: Oliver, who is a serious, honest, passionate guide who will be there for you and never disappoint you, not with his knowledge nor with his human level and guide expertise, always ready for everything.
