We had an amazing time on our 4 day inca trail hike. JJ was a great guide and the entire company worked incredibly hard to make us feel comfortable. Would fully recommend this trip.

Alex our guide was amazing! He tailored the trek to our needs and interests. We couldn't have asked for a better guide.

First-time Peru travellers, we were drawn to Trexperience because of their good reviews and because they’re locally-owned. We went with the 2D/1N camping option because we wanted the hiking experience but because we were also unsure of the physical toll (recently-problematic knee) of the 4-day trek. As it turns out, the 2D/1N hiking experience is very doable (12km on a mostly gradual ascent). Makes me want to come back for the 4D trek! Good up-front communication with the details of the trip clearly laid out in English. Our guide, Sonya, was fantastic. Warm, friendly, and all-knowing with respect to Inca history. The pace was easy, as was the conversation along the way. For people trying to decide between the camping option and the slightly cheaper hotel option, the difference - as far as I can make out - is that the camping option means travelling with porters who lay out mind-blowing & stomach-filling spreads along the way (2B, 1L, 1D). It was far more lavish than we imagined and made us wonder how we’d be able to continue hiking with such full stomachs! We’re normally accustomed to a ‘pack your own lunch’ approach to hiking. The camping location is at the valley bottom alongside the sacred Urubamba River. Tents, sleeping bags, deluxe mattresses all provided. It was pretty cool waking up to coca tea and a vertical view up through the clouds to Machu Picchu high above. Short walk back to nearby Aguas Calientes to catch the bus back up to Machu Picchu. You definitely want to arrive early (and we did) because the crowds filing their way through Machu Picchu can get quite long. One of the things we really appreciated about this package was that we got to see Machu Picchu twice, once at the end of the first day (at the end of the Inca Trail) and once more the second day when we had ample time (2-3hrs) to leisurely explore the site. This worked out to our advantage because the first day was sunny and clear while the second day was misty (and mysterious). Truly, the best of both experiences. Another thing we really enjoyed about the 2D option was that it was a very personal experience. Given the popularity of the 4-day trek, the groups can get large (a dozen or so?). For the 2D trek, it was just the two of us and our guide. There was room for more, but we were the only ones that day. Same for the next trek after us. The result was a very personalized experience. We set our own pace, stopped when we wanted, and had easy, direct access to our guide, Sonya. It felt like a private tour even though we didn’t pay for one. The only reason I didn’t give this 5/5 stars (apart from being a hard marker!) is that there were a few (very) minor hiccups with some logistical pieces that Sonya and the porters were adeptly able to manage in the moment. Overall, we felt like we were in very good hands from start to finish. I recommend Trexperience and would definitely consider using them again if/when we return for the 4-day trek. For context, we’re a father-son travel duo, ages 50 & 18. We both exercise regularly and enjoy being outdoors. All aspects of the trip were within our physical limits and comfort level.

We took the luxury inca trail trek with Trexperience mid April 2022. We always try to search for a local operator based on fellow travellers reviews. It was rather easy in the case of Trexperience as they seem to benefit from numerous positive reviews on the web and they were one of the few companies able also to offer a more pampering version of the treck with better food, tents, beds, shower/wc. The owner Carlos was responsive, informative, reliable and professional from start to finish and the team that helped us through the trek was great. I especially wish to mention Miguel, the guide, who was knolwgeable, helpful and supportive, responsible and more than anything, a great guy to have next to you on such a jurney. The trek was amazing and the views are unforgetable. I can wholeheqrtedly reccomend Trexxperience and take this opportunity to thank them again.

Thanks to Carlos Ccolcca, we have lived a wonderful experience. He helped us to recognize and see hummingbirds. The staff was good and brave to carry on stuff. The cook was very good. An amazing time.
