      It was an excellent hike.Joseph and Ethel were amazed and very helpful. One person on the group had leg cramp and Joseph gave him his hiking pole and stayed with hime until the person felt better. Joseph explained a lot about the inca history and culture showing his vast knowledge . Ethel also explained the different types or orchids found during the trail. It was fun hike and I really enjoyed it Definitely, would use your company again to discover more of Peru’s wonderful places

      The trek was well organized and planned. Everything was as explained except we were pleasantly surprised to find better amenities than expected AND cold beer at every site! Our guide, Roger, was excellent and provided us with expert knowledge and pleasant company. The rest of the crew and chefs were also very friendly and the food was surprisingly good. Although parts of the trek were grueling, they always made it enjoyable.

      We went on the 5 day Luxury Inca Trail at the beginning of October. It was a once-in-a-lifetime trip, and the hardest thing I ever did. Kudos to our guide, JJ, who was not only informative, but sensitive to all of our needs. My son had to drop out of the trip after day one because of illness. JJ and TreXPerience took care of everything. He was able to re-join us at Machu Picchu. This trip is beyond luxury. Tea in the cloud forest …. with china. Double mattress bed for my wife and me. Hot shower every day. Portable toilet. Ultra gourmet meals, beautifully presented. The chef, Walter, was incredible. Massage every day. All of this done with a staff of more than 40 people! Leandro the head porter managed amazing people who carried everything and really took care of us. We felt how happy all of the porters were on this trip. And they were all so encouraging. JJ and assistant guide Etel were a great help especially for my wife who was having a hard time with the hike. Assistant guide Luis left the group to personally lead my son back to town and get him to a hotel, and look in on him as he rested. It felt like we were on the trail by ourselves the whole time. Our guide says it’s because the 5 day itinerary has a different, more relaxed timetable compared to the more popular 4-day itineraries. Surreal experience - the changing scenery (ancient farmland, mystical cloud forest, awesomely rugged terrain above the clouds), exploring Inca ruins all along the trail by ourselves, quiet and peaceful without the hundreds of tourists that descend on Machu Picchu. Don’t underestimate how difficult the hike is. But when it’s done, you feel an incredible sense of accomplishment, and you know you’ve seen and done things that only others who have hiked this trail have experienced. Thank you TreXperience for making one of my lifelong dreams come true!

      I can unreservedly recommend choosing Trexperience for your Inca Trail hike. Everything was well planned and coordinated and the trip went without a hitch. They seem to take good care of their staff, especially the porters, and the food provided on the trek went well beyond the expectations of all the hikers. Meal times made it seem more like a glamping expedition. Our guide Cheff Amilcar (Guide Sutta) was outstanding. He shepherded a group ranging from an eight-year-old boy to a fairly old guy (me) with great skill, keeping us well briefed on what to expect and managing to allow people to travel at their own pace while staying together as a group. Sutta is well travelled outside Peru and is well attuned to people from the Anglosphere, having lived in the US and Australia among other places. He seemed to know everyone along the Inca Trail and was adept at getting us to the right place at the best time — ie, to get the best position for entry to the Machu Picchu site as well as the best campsites. He was a great source of knowledge about both the Incan civilisation and archeological sites and the people and culture of modern Peru. A fair percentage of the people on my hike expressed an intention to do the Saltankay hike with Trexperience and, preferably, Cheff Amilcar in the near future. The idea is appealing to me as well though I’ll need to rest up for a bit. It’s a challenging but doable hike even for the borderline elderly.

      We did the 6D/5N combined Salkantay and Inca Trail with Sara as our guide and Alejandro (Chef) and Beto (Chef’s assistant). They did a tremendous and amazing job and we can only highly recommend this professional team to everyone!! Sara is from the Andes, born next to the trail. She not only knows the tracks inside out, but also is extremely knowledgeable about the plants, animals, culture, and history around the track. She and her team motivated us when we were about to give up! Alejandro and Beto surprised us every day with delicious and plentiful breakfast, lunch and dinner. It was magic what they managed to cook in camps, some over 4000m high!! The food was better than in most restaurants we ate during our journey through Peru! Also, we want to especially thank Benedicto (horseman on the Salkantay Trail) and the porteadores (on the Inca Trail). This whole adventure wouldn’t have been possible without them. Our highest respect and appreciation for their hard work! Please tip them, the chefs and your guide accordingly! Finally, some remarks on this combo trip: In our view, it combines the best of the two trails: The wilderness, silence and solitude of the Salkantay region and the beauty, vibes and diversity of the Inca trail and the arrival through the sun gate. The package by Trexperience is very good as it includes everything (all entrance, fees, bus ticket from Machu Picchu to Aguas Calientes, panorama train ticket and bus transfer back to Cusco, all porteadores, and duffel bags for personal stuff). Do not underestimate this track, though! The 6 days are tough, you cross a pass over 5000 m high. But it’s all worth it!! Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts to Sara, Alejandro, Beto, Benedicto and the porteadores for this unforgettable experience!! Lastly, dear fellow travelers, show respect for these sacred places, nature and the people. Don’t smoke and listen to music on the trail. Take all your rubbish with you at all times. Treat those that guide you, cook for you and carry your luggage for you with kindness and respect. Thank you!
