Trexperience as a whole was nothing short of incredible! In general, truly wonderful staff, willing to help and answer all your questions. Our tour guide was MARITZA (extremely amazing human being) I had the fear that maybe we would be asking for to many request or to many questions, but her customer service was always a priority. She is super genuine & willing to find a way to make us feel as comfortable, relaxed and taken care of as humanly possible. Maritza went above and beyond her job requirements.

We had an incredible time with TreXperience! Maritza is everything you want in a guide - really knowledgeable, motivating, and great fun! The trek itself was superb with some fantastic scenery and a good sense of challenge (without ever getting too hard). Plus the catering was phenomenal! Our chefs Francisco and Julio went above and beyond, whether they were bringing us hot chocolate and popcorn after a long day or managing to produce outstanding meals seemingly out of thin air! We can't recommend the team and the trek enough. Thank you!

By Sarah C for Classic Inca Trail 4 days to Machu Picchu on 30 Jul, 2022
This was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! It was incredibly hard but incredibly beautiful and so worth it! Our guide Jose Luis (Pepe) was amazing - from his knowledge on the Andes and Incan history, to his friendliness, attentiveness and the care he took of us through the 4 days - 5 stars! Trexperience did a great job with the camping equipment provided (the sleeping bags and tents kept me warm through the night at the highest altitudes when it got below freezing, and the campsites were always set up an ready for us at the end of each day) and the chefs did an amazing job for every meal they provided - not only in the quality and taste of the food, but they even put effort into presentation! All around great tour, I highly recommend it!
