What people are saying about Hiking | Machu Picchu



Excellent trip and seamless booking



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



Our guide was William and he is the one that really made the trip great!



Thanks to Guide Marco for a great trip and some wonderful memories. I had a blast on the 2 day Inca Trail trek!



William was such a knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient guide! He brought books and support materials to further explain the history of the sites we were seeing, was always ready with an answer to any questions, and had great suggestions of where to take photos. He chose a truly remarkable cook for our trek, who kept us well fed with a huge variety of foods (and an ample supply of it!) and filled with hot beverages at all hours of the day and night. He allowed us to set the pace each day, and was cheerful and helpful and relaxed throughout-he absolutely enhanced a wonderful experience! Many thanks to you, William!
