Salkantay, 4 Day Alternative Trek to Machu Picchu

Don’t know the guides salary but I’m sure it’s not much so if possible increase Marcos wage. He’s an asset and a really enthusiastic, knowledgable and all round good guy.

Inca Trail, Machu Picchu, 4 Day Guided Trek

Alfredo was intelligent, hard working, a bundle of energy, patient, caring, informative, and entertaining. He is one of the best guides I have seen with a perfect set of skills. My only negative would be that the quality of the camp gear (chairs, dining tent) were worn and should be replaced. The food was sub par and a bit disappointing. The soup was good, the desserts appropriate for the conditions, the hot chocolate appreciated. The porters were kind, hard working and helpful

Salkantay, 4 Day Alternative Trek to Machu Picchu

Monica Is a very kind, sincere and professional guide. She is so fit and humble. I enjoyed her company on all my guided tours. Her knowledge on her history and mountaineering skills are impeccable. I recommend Monica for anything in Peru. She knows her mountains and history very well. She is very passionate and detail oriented.

Salkantay, 4 Day Alternative Trek to Machu Picchu

We cannot begin to express our thanks for organizing our trip to Salkantay and Machu Picchu.  The trip was perfect.  Every transfer and tour went without a problem.  The hike was great and we even got perfect sunshine in Machu Picchu.  We are extremely tired from our hike to Machu Picchu but were very happy we got the chance to do that rather than HP based on what we heard from others along the way. You not only gave me what I asked for but also what I didn't know to ask for - including a lovely spot for lunch on the Sacred Valley tour and seats on the correct side of the train, when we traveled during daylight.  Thank you. And as for the trip, based on the famous words of our very enthusiastic tour guide at Machu Picchu.  Incredible, Fantastic, Gorgeous!

Inca Trail, Machu Picchu, 4 Day Guided Trek

I booked the 4 day Inca trail trek with this company. All round it was a pretty great experience. Food on the trip was simply amazing and our guide did everything he could to make our trip comfortable and enjoyable. Our group was 5, smaller than other companies, which was great on the trail. There were a couple of miscommunications between the office, but these were solved in the end and didn't create any major issues. I would book again with this company.

Inca trail, Machu Picchu, with an official operator in 2 days

We just returned home from a great holiday in Peru. The team of South America Planet has made this trip a big success. We have done the tour with 4 friends. Together with South America Planet we have set-up a tour where there was enough balance between visiting all the highlights in Peru and time to relax and visiting nice cities on our own pace. All agreed tours were delivered as planned with very experienced guides. On top of this we had a 24H emergency number from South America planet that we could call or reach via WhatsApp whenever it was needed. Thanks Warry for you support! Next to this we had regularly contact with Dirk who wanted to know if everything was OK. A dream holiday where we had the feeling there was really taken care about us. Our 2 Days incatrail trekking we never forget, amazing to see Machu Picchu from the sungate .We recommend South America Planet to everyone who wants to travel through South-America If there are people who wants to know more about this great trip, they can always contact us. Thanks Dirk and the team of South America Planet !!!!!

Inca Trail, Machu Picchu, 4 Day Guided Trek

We had a lovely time in Peru and we enjoyed every moment of it! Everything was organised perfectly and we did not have to worry about anything! the Machu Picchu Inca trail was amazing and we are very happy and proud that we have done it. We would like to thank you all, especially Dirk. He has informed us well and was always available for our questions :) We also want to mention that Francesco, our trekking guide, was really good. He guided us well and provided with detailed information about Peru and machu picchu. The food on the trail was amazing, even better than any restaurant in our Peru trip. If everyone wants to travel to Peru, we would definitely recommend SAP :)
