      We had fantastic time with our trip. It was such an awesome experience I would recommend it to anybody, you don't have to be expert or practice a ton. Our guide Roger made it look real easy, he has helped with couple of our team members when needed, he was with us all the time guiding and making sure that we don't over exert our selves. He was courteous and always willing to help, he was with us all the time and made sure that everything went smooth. The food was out of this world, not sure how our Chef Daniel made it over the mountain with very limited resources, we had gourmet meals 3 times a day, we were stuffed and ready for a nap after every meal. Overall, it was fantastic experience, the scenery is out of this world, no matter how many pictures you take , they just don't do justice, you have to experience it.

      We were very impressed with our experience with Trexperience. Communication was awesome throughout the process. We were really happy with the quality of the equipment used. The guides - Jhony and Sebastian - were SO kind, helpful and knowledgable. The food was awesome!! The porters were amazing. We had 14 in our group with some varying ages and abilities. We all made it through the trek with the support of this amazing team. We highly recommend this company for your trek to Machu Picchu. They were the best!

      We had a fantastic experience from Day1 to Day5. There were professional from the time I made the booking, answered all my questions in a timely manner. They exceeded my expectations as far as the trek. Roger, our guide was exceptional and knowledgeable about Peruvian history. He was very quick to assess group capabilities and preferences. He was adaptable and made appropriate changes as needed to ensure that the entire group was comfortable and had the best chance to enjoy the trek. Daniel our chef exceeded our expectations as well. He quickly understood what we liked and adapted his dishes to suit our needs. The dinner table settings were also extremely pleasing as were the tent arrangements. Showers and toilet tents were also functional and very helpful to us. Porters were very efficient and did a great job in setting up the camp sites and dismantling when we had to leave. I would highly recommend Trexeperience to anyone who would like to experience this incredible trek.

      What a fabulous experience, from the initial booking online and via whatsapp to our final trip on the panoramic train. An informative meeting the evening before you leave with our guides Charlie and Rosmel assured us we had made the right choice. With such an early start the next day, Rosmel met us at the hotel to take us to the pick up and from then on we were looked after royally. Both guides were informative, supportive and caring throughout the 4 days, keeping the groups' spirits high and interested all the way. The food was amazing and plentiful, we never expected to have so much choice! Vegetarian options were also plentiful for those in the group. How the head chef Balbino and his assistant chef prepared such a variety of fresh and tasty food for each meal with such limited resources is a feat in its self! A huge shout out to the amazing porters! Antonio the head porter and his crew carried everything from fresh eggs to the porta loo with a smile on their face - reaching camp way before we did to have it ready for when we staggered in! Truly believe that TreXperience is one of the companies that looks after their porters properly, providing the right number to distribute the weight correctly. At the end of the trek the train was delayed for an hour which meant we may have missed our flight from Cusco to Lima. Charlie, Rosmel and the team pulled out all the stops for us to make it in time including a private transfer from Ollantaytambo to Cusco to ensure we made our flight, which we did comfortably, so a huge thankyou for that too guys! Thoroughly recommend the Inka Trail 4 day hike with this company Trexperience!
