Very nice experience. A top team with the guide Jose Calderon and the chef Amilcar. The food was incredible good and even we have been only two people, the provided… read more us the full service. Jose Calderon made a very good tour at MachuPicchu with very detailed explanations. It was an unforgettable trip.
We had a great tour with Trexperince on the Inca trail. Tour guides (ours was Vincent) are knowledgeable about history of the area and also very helpful in ensuring tourists… read more have a fun, safe, and comfortable experience. Ample information was provided to be prepared for the trip and navigate the transportation. This was also a fun way to meet new people from all over.
I went on the Classic Inca Trail 4 day 3 night hike. We had two absolutely amazing guides Sarah and Charlie. They went above and beyond to make sure we… read more had everything we needed to be comfortable and have a incredible time. I expected to eat well but the food exceeded my expectations! I thought we ate like kings and queens! I didn’t bring gloves because it was hot during the day in Cusco but I wish that I had because we ended up in an ice pellet storm on day 2. It was challenging but SO rewarding!!! I am so glad I chose to see Machu Picchu this way instead of the train and bus. Seeing it through the sun gate was fantastic! I did train before this hike and would recommend doing that because it is much harder to hike at altitude! Overall I had the absolute time of my life!!! Would highly recommend Trexperience and would do it myself again!
A transformative experience. Every step of the journey is as enjoyable as the magical destination. Charlie and Sarita were incredible guides – super informative and approachable. The food beggers belief… read more and the porters are super-human. Look no further than TreXperience as your tour provider for the Inca Trail.
Favorite part? Everything. I wouldn’t change a single thing about this trip. Charlie, Sarita, and our chef, sous chef, and porters were just such an attentive and caring team. And… read more this is in addition to being on an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime experience. And did I mention the food? Holy smokes! Better than any food I had in Lima or Cusco (or in most places, really). I could not recommend this trip more—start to finish (even with some pretty intense, high altitude hiking) WORTH EVERY PENNY.
Great tour with Sarah & Charlie in the Andes! They took great care of our entire group and were encouraging and supportive even on the harder parts of the trail.… read more Food was incredible and the services by the porters (warm water for washing, comfortable tents/sleeping quarters, snacks before hikes, drinks after hikes, etx) were amazing. Transportation to/from the hike was also super easy and helpful. Overall a great team and company to go through for the hike! An incredible experience – once in a lifetime.
For anyone who is looking for another option than the Inca Trail, this is a great scenic option! From time of booking through Tour Radar, TreXperience had impeccable communication and… read more provided helpful information. We met our tour guide, Filio, in Cusco the night before and honestly we had the best time with him over the 4 days. He was great, funny and knowledgeable about all things Inca. He even taught us some Quechan. We were very lucky as there was only my husband and I so it became a private tour (great price!) and Filio was very patient with our pace. He was also a great photographer. Pedro was also an amazing cook and we could not fault any of the dishes. Was delicious so definitely consider booking via TreXperience as they are also a local company at a very good price compared to other Australian companies we were looking at!
We just completed the Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu/Aguas Calientes and have only positive things to say about TreXperience and the team who looked after us! Every detail was well… read more thought out with little surprises along the way beyond what was listed as ‘included’ in the tour – which I won’t ruin in a review!
The food/catering is absolutely delicious and it’s incredibly impressive what our team Amilca, Cecilio and Elmer put together on the side of a mountain. Thank you all!! The meals really were a highlight. The team look after the majority of your equipment – ours was quickly transported from campsite to campsite by the team of horses and our capable horseman, Wilbur.
Group sizes are kept small (smaller than many other operators) so we all got to hike at a pace we were happy with. Our group was 5pax and quickly became "familia" on the trip!
Lastly a special mention to our guide, Adolfo who was brilliant throughout. He kept motivation high and provided lots of information throughout, drawing on his 15 years of experience to teach us about the inca civilisation, as well as wildlife (flora & fauna) through the trek. Gracias Adolfo.
Despite having a cloudy day at Machu Picchu with poor visibility and no ‘vista’, we all reminisced on the panoramic train back towards Cusco that the journey with TreXperience really did outweigh the destination (Machu Picchu) for us. 100% recommend.
I highly recommend this experience with Trexperience and our guide, Monica! We enjoyed part of the Inca Trail the first day, finishing at Machu Pichu. The entire… read more adventure was beautiful, our guide was knowledgeable and most importantly, when my daughter got sick, our guide and the staff of TreXperience were amazing to organize a doctor and help with translation and arrangements. Monica even came to our hotel in Cusco following the trip to check and in and help me with a visit to the local Pharmacist. Thank you Monica, my new friend forever !!! Aside from the sickness, she was super knowledgeable and fun along our journey. She absolutely went the extra mile to make us feel comfortable! Thank you!!
We had an excellent trip with our guide Edwin and his team from TreXperience. I couldn’t wish for a better guide. He was always ready to help and had so… read more many laughs together. While walking he also checked on us many times to see how we were doing. My girlfriend was a bit afraid about the difficulty of the trek (because of her bad knees), but with Edwin by our side, this worry was quickly gone. Also the chef, sous-chef and the horseman were incredible. They did everything to make it comfortable for us and to bring very good food to the table. Thank you for this experience. This would not be possible without you!
Had an amazing time on the Inca trail! Our tour guides Felix and Maribel went above and beyond. Felix was a fountain of knowledge and had answers to every question,… read more but beyond that was fun and friendly and was always ready with a joke and a smile. Maribel was so lovely and caring and full of positive reinforcement. The food was amazing with the staff preparing special dishes for Mother’s Day and a honeymoon – thank you to Julio Cesar! All in all a great trip :)
We did the 1/2 day city tour of Cusco and full day Sacred Valley tour with Johny. He was very knowledgeable about the culture and history of Peru. He was… read more extremely helpful in so many ways (e.g., restaurant reservations, tips and tricks for the Inca trail, communication about subsequent components of our trip with Trexperience, etc). He was a delight to be around!
Exceeding expectations all around. As a solo traveller I always felt welcome and well taken care of. The meals were both varied, typical and tasty. Our guides, Charlie and Sara,… read more were very nice and professional. Never once felt lost or left behind. Our group was young and could hold their own in hiking and joking around.
The Inka trail was a really nice experience! The nature is amazing and I liked the physical challenge a lot. Our guides, Heberth and Sol(edad) were the best and answered… read more us every question. The food was also excellent during the trekking – compliments to the chef Rolando. A big thanks also to the porters (Santos was the organiser) who did an incredible job for us.
I only give a rating of four because the work of the porters is very hard and I felt actually pretty bad that they had to carry that much.
Truly one of the most incredible experiences of my life! My husband and I booked the private 2-day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu through Trexperience because of the great reviews,… read more and they exceeded every expectation. We were lucky enough to have Vincent as our guide – he was the best! He was a wonderful storyteller, a patient and encouraging guide, and very flexible with personalizing the experience for us. He had an answer for every question we had, and would occasionally ask us questions that we wouldn’t know the answer to – resulting in some of the most ridiculous jokes I’ve ever heard. Vincent also had a true respect and reverence for his history and traditional Inca customs, it was a beautiful experience to learn from him. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide to lead us to Machu Picchu!
Before starting the trail, we decided to stay overnight in Ollantaytambo to have a later wake up time (7AM pickup instead of 4AM, highly recommend). We decided to go with the private tour instead of a group because we wanted to go at our own pace, and honestly it wasn’t that much more expensive than the group tour – especially worth it when we considered the level of effort to get out there in the first place. We started the day on the Panoramic train to KM 104. Try to get seats on the side by the river. It’s beautiful from every angle, but that was definitely the place to get the best views. After getting off the train, we crossed the bridge and were greeted by an Andean Motmot! Such a lucky bird sighting! We were also fortunate to do the hike at the end of April, there were thousands of different orchids blooming on the trail.
Right away, you encounter the Inca Site of Chachabamba, directly across the river. It’s a great start to the trail before the ascent. The first half of the hike up to Wiñay Wayna was entirely uphill, it’s challenging but definitely doable. For reference, my husband and I are in our early-30s and moderately fit – we exercise regularly, but nothing can really prepare you for the altitude. Definitely stay in Cusco a couple days, drink lots of coca tea, and do what you need to do to adjust. After about 2.5 hours, we entered into a shaded area with a beautiful waterfall that we took a nice rest at. About 20 minutes from there, we reached Wiñay Wayna! This site alone is seriously worth the effort, it’s unbelievable from every direction. From there, the trail becomes a lot easier. Not as much continuous incline, Vincent referred to this part as "Inca flat" (basically quick ups and downs for the remainder of the hike). After one last push up a couple of daunting staircases, we reached the Sun Gate! It’s a surreal and spiritual experience, I can’t really put into words how special it was to see Machu Picchu in the distance. A little bit more walking from Intipunku, and we arrived at the bus station to be transported to Aguas Claientes.
The next morning, we woke up early and hopped on the same bus to be taken back to Machu Picchu. We had reserved tickets to climb Huayna Picchu, which we were feeling a bit nervous about, but I am so glad we did it. Honestly, the view at the top was worth every single stair to get up there. There were so many beautiful orchids, butterflies, and birds that provided great incentive (an excuse) to take rests on the way up. A true highlight of the experience! We still had plenty of time in Machu Picchu itself to see all of the temples and walk through the ruins. When our time was up, we said goodbye and hopped on the panoramic train in Aguas Calientes to return to Cusco in time for dinner and an early night of sleep.
This experience provided me with two of the best days of my life, and I could not recommend it more highly. A huge part of our experience was sharing it with Vincent, and I would absolutely recommend traveling with him if you can. We’re already planning on coming back to do the 4-day trail with him in the future! Until then, my husband and I will cherish the memories made on this unforgettable trip.
Our guide Luis was helpful and had always interesting informations for us. He patiently tried to fulfill all the wishes of all guests. He was like a friend and we… read more would go with him again anytime.
The food that the chef prepared with the team was delicious and satisfied all special requests.

Thank you for making this journey enjoyable.
We had a very positive experience with TreXperience. The company did an excellent job at keeping us well-informed about what to bring and expect for the trip as well as… read more updating us with changes to the region’s rules and regulations in light of COVID (mask requirements, COVID testing/vaccination protocol). There was a mandatory briefing the night before the trip to allow us to meet our tour guide, review the itinerary and give us an opportunity to ask any questions which I thought was very helpful.
The TreXperience team for my group consisted of tour guide Nilo Uscamayta, chef Celso, sous-chef Juan, and horseman Victor. I highly recommend this team – every single member worked so hard at making us feel welcome and as comfortable as possible on this journey. Nilo was very patient, empathetic and knowledgeable – some of us struggled during parts of the trek with injury or illness, and Nilo was very patient even though we moved slowly. He always encouraged us to move at a comfortable pace. He always asked how we were feeling and if there’s anything he could do to help. Nilo was very knowledgeable and was consistently giving us interesting information on the landscape, culture and history of the region. He also knew the best spots in Machu Picchu to capture beautiful photos and was always enthusiastic to take photos for us.
Every meal prepared by chef Celso and sous-chef Juan was impressive. They are truly talented to be able to prepare delicious meals with just a few tools and without a working kitchen. They even found out that it was my friend’s birthday and whipped up a personalized cake for her! The Pachamanca meal was very interesting and really demonstrated the passion that the chef and sous-chef have for cooking. Our horseman, Victor, was very attentive and always made sure that our belongings were readily available and that the campsite was setup before we arrived.
If you are considering doing a guided trek to Machu Picchu, I highly recommend this tour with TreXperience. Some parts of the trek may be difficult, but it is manageable and very scenic. You will have a very memorable time, especially if you are lucky enough to have the team that we had. Don’t think about it anymore and just book it :) !

Spectacular! From start to finish everything was clear and well organized. Pick up went as planned and the ride was comfortable, the company also stored the rest of our stuff.… read more We were given duffle bags for things that we didn’t want or need in our day backs and those were carried by amazing porters, more on them later. We also rented sleeping bags, inflatable pads and tracking poles -everything was in very good condition and served us well. The food throughout the whole trek was just out of this world. I don’t know how they managed to cook such an wholesome dishes in conditions that one finds on a hike, but it was incredible, from traditional Peruvian soups, ceviche to cakes (yes, that’s right). The guides were always helpful, cheerful and ready to say something interesting. Porters were supporting and the service they provide is unbelievable, we didn’t worry about anything (and there is a lot of things to worry about/they provide: food, camps, water, tents and other facilities), because we knew that we can rely on them.
Only time when we felt a bit uncomfortable was during the "tipping ceremony".
All in all we got to see sooo many lovely views, animals, plants and history, while hiking safely and supporting the local people.
