Best experience ever!
We had the best experience through the Inca Trail for four days with an amazing team.
JJ and Juan were amazing tour guides, very knowledgeable and… read more friendly.
They shared all the information they knew about this amazing culture and the Inca history, while providing us with the best comfort along with the outstanding and very hardworking porters.
My partner and I are vegan, and Raymundo, the head chef, ensured we had very nutritious, varied and delicious vegan meals the whole time.
We had an amazing time during our 4 day trek, and we would definitely recommend this amazing team to take you through magical Machu Picchu.
Thank you guys! Sol and Fede.
Great tour led by a great guide, Fernando Benavides! Fernando was always well informed, had the logistics figured out and was very accommodating throughout the entire trip.
An experience of a lifetime which we truly enjoyed with the Trexperience crew. Special thanks to our lead guide Jose and the wonder women guides we had, Lourdes and Rosa.… read more Thank you for all your support, guidance and the Inca stories you told along the way. You made the experience truly amazing!
It was a very nice experience with our guide José Calderon. The trek was definitely worth it. After a hard day of hiking the chefs prepared us a lovely meal.… read more I’m very pleased about this adventure.
We had the most amazing experience with TreXperience for our Luxury Inca Trail/Machu Picchu trek. From our actual hike, to the accommodations/campsites to the food, everything was above our expectations.… read more Our tour guide was Charlie and he definitely made the experience. As he was originally from the region, he had a clear investment in understanding and sharing the history of his people which really made the experience feel like much more than a hike. He is also an excellent photographer.
The tents and beds were very comfortable and we slept exceptionally well. Be aware it is COLD at night, don’t just bring layers, bring WARM layers (hat, gloves, layerable sweats/fleece). When we we’re cold the team brought us hot water bottles which was a total game changer and so nice of them. The food is incredible, I still don’t even understand how they make it with the resources they have on this trip.
I think it is also important to point out that TreXperience is an ethical company, which I would say is maybe even the number one reason to select them for your trip. They is a long-standing issue with companies exploiting the porters with poor pay and overwork, including forcing them to carry weights which are too heavy/safe which no doubt leads to injuries longterm. On your trip you will see that porters are the backbone of tourism on the Inca Trail, it would literally be impossible without them, and so finding a company which respects this is very important. TreXperience is very transparent with how they treat their porters, including citing their pay and how much they are allowed to carry, and on our trek all of the staff seemed genuinely happy to be with the group. Be sure to bring money for tips – when you see how hard everyone works you will definitely want to!
Final note: the weather is extremely unpredictable in the mountains – definitely bring a rain jacket +/- rain pants as well as light layers for layering during the day.
Overall 12/10 recommend doing your Inca Trail/Machu Picchu trek with TreXperience.
The whole experience from start to finish was really well organised and the group of 7 of us, plus our guide Edy, created a great bond.
The briefing on… read more the first night gave us all the info we needed and, as a solo female traveller, I was put at ease.
The team of chef, assistants, porters and horsemen looked after us so well! The food was insane! We never went hungry and actually I felt bad there was always food left over. And it wasn’t just good food for being out in the mountains, it was GOOD food for anywhere! I can’t believe what they were able to make, including full on cakes! And we got to experience a meal cooked in a traditional oven in the ground.
The hot springs were a delightful start to the trip, although they would have been welcome after the 3 days trekking too! :) And the breakfast served was incredible!
The hike was beautiful! We were never rushed. It was fine that there were faster and slower walkers. Our guide Edy always made sure everyone was OK.
The nights were cold in June, so pack a warm coat and make sure you have something warm to sleep in, although we were given a sleeping bag liner and hot water bottle, which was a wonderful and welcome touch.
Edy was so much fun to spend 4 days with, and he was not only friendly and caring, but super knowledgeable. You could tell he cared deeply about the local people and the mountains. He told us all about the local communities, as well as the mountains, the fauna and the culture.
Machu Picchu was the highlight! Again, Edy was great! He was an expert at storytelling and relaying the history of Machu Picchu. He gave us all the time we needed for photos and for storytelling, and he was excellent at taking the best photos in the best spots.
It was an amazing experience I wish cherish forever! And TreXperience, Edy, and the group made me feel very safe and welcome as a solo traveller. I would definitely recommend TreXperience and do tours with them again!
Most amazing experience on the 4 day Inca trail. Eddie and Yonar were our guides and Eddie was one of the most passionate people I’ve ever met. He loves the… read more Inca trail and it’s rich history more than everything. The exact type of guide you want to learn from and keep motivated throughout. Yonar is a newer guide and learning English but absolutely loved him as well. They both kept such high energy and positive attitudes throughout! The trail itself is amazing, the views and the Inca ruins along the way make seeing Machu Picchu that much more special and meaningful. The entire team goes absolutely above and beyond to make the experience great. The whole thing is so well run and organized, from getting camp set up and broken down each day to the fantastic food that is cooked. The porters were always clapping us into camp after a day of hiking after they had been then ones doing the actual hard work. Lastly the food, wow, amazing what kinda of things they can cook up there on tiny stoves. We had a wide variety of dishes with fish, beef, chicken along with traditional Peruvian dishes and they easily accommodated for those in the group that were vegan or vegetarian. Can’t recommend this company and tour enough!!!
An incredible experience. I would definitely recommend using trexperience for any trek, especially the 4 day salkantay. Nilo, our guide, was amazing. He made everyone feel comfortable, was very insightful… read more and had great stories. The food was delicious. Raymundo y Jhonan made great authentic Peruvian cuisine. They always made more than enough for everyone to leave the table satisfied. Augostino packed everything for us very thoroughly and got all of our stuff to camp safely. You will see incredible sights and have the time of your life. Don’t hesitate booking with trexperience and ask for Nilo

We did both a half day Cusco city tour and a full day Sacred Valley tour with Jhony and it was absolutely awesome! Jhony did a fantastic job taking us… read more to all the best spots and explaining all of the history and culture. He is the last Great Inka King! I can’t say enough good things about him or our experience. Highly recommended!
This was not just a four day hike. It was a total experience from learning about Incas history from our amazing tour guide Edy, to experience authentic Peruvian food in… read more the middle of mountains by chef Raymundo, to appreciate the humbleness and kindness of porters who carried all the necessary stuff for us and make us feel welcomed and appreciated. We had an unpredictable journey, with lots of unexpected things happen on our way, but Edy and Rosa handled smoothly everything. It was incredible and I would go with Trexperience again in a heartbeat. Thank you guys!
This 4 day Salkantay trek by TreXperience was above and beyond what I imagined! From beginning to end there was excellent communication and the team is amazing. Our guide Nilo… read more was excellent. He is a great guy with so much knowledge of the land and culture to teach you. He kept our spirits up during the more challenging parts of the hike and we had great conversations during the whole trek. He also took many pictures for us which was appreciated! From morning to night the team takes great care of you by waking you up with coca tea and an amazing breakfast, snacks, water, huge lunches and dinners, gives you all the details you need and makes sure you’re feeling well on the hike never leaving anyone behind, and of course coca leaves to help with the altitude! I felt so well taken care of and safe the entire trek and met so many amazing people. Thanks to the chefs Celso, Juan, and Leucadio for the AMAZING meals (it is insane what they are able to make on the trek! Some of the best food we had in Peru!). I would 100 % recommend using TreXperience if you plan on hiking in Peru. We had such an amazing time and all the transfers and details went so smoothly. They think of every detail and let you know what to expect everyday which makes things so stress free. The visit to Machu picchu was so informative thanks to Nilo’s expertise! Thanks again Nilo and the entire TreXperience team!!
We did the city tour and Sacred Valley Tour with Christian and Elvis who were fantastic. I would highly recommend a tour with them.
Luxury – Salkantay Trail
Had an amazing experience with our lead tour guide Juan Jose (JJ) and head chef Julio Cesar.
If possible, I highly recommend requesting this… read more team when considering this tour.
This trek was very challenging and the team was very patient and accommodating as we tried our best to acclimate to the high altitudes.
This trek was the best experience of my life. The landscape, activities, explanation was perfect. Our guide William with Trexperience was the best one I had since I travel around… read more the world. Really friendly, like to make jokes, really respect the schedule and take care of everyone and try to keep everyone in group depending the level of hiking of everyone. William is really passionate by his job and knows a lot about the Inca history. The food was amazing, i thought we were at 2 start restaurant everyday. I strongly recommend this trek
Had an amazing experience getting to know the history and culture of the city, as well as our Tour Guide! Vincent was an amazing tour guide. He dove into the… read more true history of Cusco and the Incan Empire.
He really took care of our needs. My dad got tired along the way and Vincent was still able to provide a fulfilling tour both on foot (for myself) and by van (for my dad).
We had somewhere to be directly after the tour and him and Donny, our driver were kind enough to offer driving us straight there after the tour!
Not only was our tour filled with breathtaking views and informative lessons, it was welcoming and filled with even better people! I would highly recommend this to others.
The whole Trexexperience was amazing. From hiking to camping overnight with this group, this was the only way to do it. Our guide, Miguel, was fantastic. He was… read more fun, interesting, helpful, and went over the top to make the trip the best. The porters had everything set up for us before we needed it, including all of our overnight camping gear. Our chef, Celso, was also amazing. The food was just delicious, and, as a surprise, he baked me a birthday cake! It was the best and only was too do Machu Picchu.
The trip was amazing experience! Everything was really well organised. The night before the adventure we had a meeting when everything about the tour was explained and all questions were… read more answered. Campsites were really great equipped, with our own toilet, good tents and proper sleeping bags (up to -10deg, so we didn’t get cold at night). And food at the campsite is as just great! Lunches and dinners with a few courser, breakfast full of options like pancakes, fruits, eggs. Everything was super delicious! Our guide JJ was incredibly amazing. He explained us everything about Incas culture and habits. He told us story of each temple we passed. Fully recommend to experience the Inca trail with this company!
Can’t thank Trexperience enough for this trip. I’ve been waiting a long time to see machu picchu and it lived up to it and more, all thanks to Maritza in… read more particular, our fantastic guide who made it the amazing experience it was. The porters, chefs, horsemen did such an IC redible job too!!
We really enjoyed this tour! The Inca Trail and Machu Picchu were breathtaking and our guide, Jose Luis, did an amazing job. He taught us so many things and made… read more sure we were always having a good time. The two day trek was a perfect combination of hiking and relaxing; on day one we hiked all day (and the boxed lunch was great) and on day two we got a very thorough and enjoyable tour of Machu Picchu from Jose Luis. We loved it! Highly recommend!
A magical experience with Sara, my guide, from
Trexperience! The organisation of this trip with the company was smooth and they were responsive on WhatsApp with all my questions! Sara,… read more my guide, was super informative and knowledgeable about Macchu Picchu. She answered all my questions and is passionate about the site and the area, as she is a local Andean. Sara was able to show me all the key areas of Macchu Picchu and avoid most of the crowds for photos as well! Highly recommend the team and especially Sara! Will def return to do more tours with Trexperience!
I booked my trip with Trexperience and absolutely loved it! Our guide Charlie and Sarah were excellent! They were super friendly, supportive when it got tough and were constantly providing… read more information about the different historical sites you see, plants, and animals.
The porters and chefs are incredible and support the trip in crazy ways by bringing your duffle and campsite equipment to multiple checkpoints. The food was amazing and blew me away, especially since you’re in the jungle and mountains. They are able to produce such an amazing meal every time, even baking a cake for us on the last day! You’ll never go hungry trust me.
Overall I really recommend TreXperience for anyone looking to travel to Machu Picchu, the staff from top to bottom were fantastic and make the experience stress free!
Thank you Charlie and Sarah for being such amazing guides!!
A definite 5/5. Augustine made Machu Picchu come alive with his knowledge, stories, photos you can feel the joy radiating off of him by getting to share his beloved Machu… read more Picchu with the world! His English was perfect, he kindly took photos of us, and truly made our experience at Machu Picchu perfect!
We had Charlie as our tour guide and he was awesome! Really nice and friendly and very knowledgeable about nature and Incan history. I was really thankful that he stopped… read more multiple times during our hike so I could take breaks and he made sure no one was left behind (we had a mix of faster hikers and slower hikers in our group). Charlie was also a really good photographer and will take many many beautiful pictures of you! Our trail tickets only let us into Machu Picchu once (no bathrooms inside Machu Picchu), however, my boyfriends stomach was not feeling well and we needed to use the restroom mid tour, Charlie was able to talk to the ticketing counter to get us an exception so we could re-enter Machu Picchu again. We absolutely loved the packed lunch on our hike, however we did not enjoy the dinner chosen by the tour company. The restaurant they chose was low quality with limited options. We ended up going to eat somewhere else after the group dinner was over.
We had the most amazing time on this trek with the best group of 8 people from around the world. You truly become best friends and a family in 4… read more days!
We had two guides Robinzon and Walter who both were fantastic in keeping our spirits up even when morale was low due to the high altitude. They looked after us “fragile hikers” very well. Robinzon was our main guide who spoke English quite well and was able to share interesting stuff with us about Quechua people and the local flora and fauna. He had a great sense of humour and even made coffee for us on the Dead And Woman’s pass!!! What a life saver.
This was Walter’s first trip with an English speaking group and he dealt with us with the outmost care. He was so humble and lovely we really liked him.
About the porters:
For 8 people we had 16! Porters carrying everything for us! Primo was our head porter who made it to camp first everyday and claimed the best spots for our tents. These guys are the real super heroes running up the mountains with 20kg on their backs like it’s nothing. They greeted us with smiles and cheers every time we made it to camp. Whereas in actual reality they are the ones who deserve the cheering. We got hot water every night so we could wash off the dust of the road which I thought was a nice touch.
We had 1 chef, 1 assistant chef and 1 waiter with us for the whole trip. This was a great opportunity to try local foods and get to know the different type of potatoes, fruits and corn of the region.
Every day 3 x we were treated like Inkas (kings) and were served at least 3 different types of dish.
Most evening meals were washed off by a Muna tea and we had nice fresh coffee at breakfast.
About the Inka trail:
We are hobby hikers and Munro baggers in Scotland ( so in good shape) but I would say that the trek was tough going. Although, It was worth all the pain for seeing a small part of the Andes and how people in there live. And of course the mighty Machu Picchu . We dreamt about being there so many times and experiencing it and after the 4 day trek it was even more special to us. We even climbed Wayna Picchu. The only thing is that due to the second climb we were not able to get a full tour (2.5 hrs maximum) and didn’t hear about the history of Machu Picchu as much as we would have liked to. But we can read all the books about it later while browsing through our pictures.
Amazing trail with amazing views! Our private guide Jose Luis made those 2 days such a fun and great experience. The best guide we ever had!
I’ll admit this was a gruelling trek, but the feeling of walking into Machu Picchu and all the history and culture along the way was so much better than taking… read more the train and bus in for a day trip. Half our group almost didnt complete the trip, two had sore knees from downhill steps, one had a sore back and altitude sickness, and a teenager burnt himself out on the first day throwing up and diarrhea. But our guides, Eddie and Rosa were excellent. They really cared about the group and lived the Quechuan culture of Family. Eddie was extremely passionate about the history and culture and Rosa was always smiling and laughing. porters from Pisac were also amazing. They ran around furiously after tirelessly hiking up and down dead womans pass to set up tents and mattresses for those that were struggling so they could get some rest. One of the group that was sick fell into some bushes and got small burrs all over his sweater. One porter spent half an hour picking the burrs out while he got some rest. Way above and beyond. Thank you Juvenal for all that you and your porters did for us. As most people say, the food was also excellent. Chef Raymundo made some amazing dishes and his fruit art was incredible. There was honestly way too much food. More than our group could possibly eat. If you want a truly unique experience and that once in lifetime experience of walking into Machu Picchu after a well earned trek, then do this trek. You definitely cant go wrong with TreXperience.
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.
Our experience was amazing! Our guides, JJ (Juan Jose) & Judy, were experienced and knowledgeable and kept us well informed the entire trip. The food was absolutely delicious and… read more so impressive, we ate like Kings every meal. A huge thank you to our porters for carrying everything and having everything set up flawlessly upon our arrival to camp each night. With so many dynamics with a group hike our guides did an excellent job of handling many tough situations (altitude sickness, slower trekkers, etc) and ensured that everybody arrived safely to camp each night. Thank you for making this experience the best!
The classical four day inca trail with TreXperience was a remarkable experience. My tour guides were Robinzon Gutiérrez Llanos and Walter Diaz.
The guides were very knowledgable and we… read more learnt a lot through them along the trail. The trail is tough and they were very supportive and patient, ensuring we all got to the camp at our own pace.
TreXperience as a company were highly organised and very professional. They ensured everyone in the group were well looked after and were truly enjoying themselves. They came across very genuine.
The food was incredible and the rest of the staff were very polite and helpful.
The equipment provided were at a high standard and everything was always clean. The camp sites had magical views.
I would highly recommend TreXperience as a company I will certainly be returning to do another challenging trail.
TreXperience thank you for an incredible memory.
Amazing experience, combining a trek in the nature and exploring the ancient city Machu Picchu. Our guide Filio was super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the Inca culture and the… read more nature around us.
The experience was amazing from start to finish! My crew, including Edy the tour guide, Vanessa the masseause, the head chef and assistant chef, and three porters were so incredible… read more and they were all working so hard throughout the trip to make sure everything went smoothly. The porters were hustling the whole time I don’t even know how they were carrying so many things throughout the trip and still beat me by like over an hour and got everything set up. The logistics were 100% perfect and I could not have asked for a better experience. And ending with Machu Picchu was just the perfect ending to the trek.
I’m also a foodie and the food was A+ on this trip!! I literally don’t even know how they cooked all the food with basically no electricity on these camp sites.
If you can afford it I’d go for the Luxury experience which has the massage available for three of the nights, which is just perfect for a long day of trekking. Also for the luxury experience they don’t cheap out on things like the hotel or restaurants. They were all amazing and I have stayed at / eaten at many of the best hotels in the world.
This was a life changing experience and I will remember it forever!
It was an amazing experience. Beautiful views all the way. The first two days were full of trekking and the hardest. Our guide Nilo was very attentive, caring and concerned.… read more He was very easy to talk to and I loved listening to his stories while hiking. I really enjoyed our meals prepared by chef Vacilio and sous chef Eusebio. Lots of Peruvian dishes as well as few surprises like pancakes and birthday cake. Our horseman Frank was working hard as well taking care of our tents and all the belongings. I really enjoyed everything, and the views were always incredible. I would definitely recommend TreXperience!
We didn’t expect that the experience would be so good. Our guides JJ and Yoner really made our trip to Machu Picchu special. But what amazed us the most was… read more the food. For example we got cake the last day made in a pan on simple cooking gear. Although the trip was challenging (soo many stairs going up and down..) the total experience was great and I would definitely recommend!
I have hiked quit a lot, but this experience is different and unique with porters and chiefs services. I highly recommend it to anyone who don’t mind outdoor living… read more for a few days. More specifically, here are what I like and some thoughts
1. The porters are working very hard for very little, and they are very attentive, eager to please if we need anything. I would suggest to bring a lot more changes to tip them.
2. Our guides, Carlos and Joao are very personable and fun, knowable and experienced. I have enjoyed the interaction with them greatly. I wish I asked them a lot more questions, cultural and personal.
3. The chief ( Julio) and meals are excellent, I am amazed how did he manage to produce the meals with beautiful presentation under such primitive conditions? Again, the porters bring in everything include cooking stove, pots and pans, propane etc Tip is: be prepared to eat three square meal a day!:-)
1. Company could ask us to indicate the t-shirt size ahead of time online to make it easier for the guides.
2. I would like to stick to the same sleeping bag and pillow, so a system to put our name there would be helpful.
3. For travelers, I wish I read more about the history so I can learn even more from the trip.
It was a wonderful experience, the trail/place and the people have touched me deeply, and I’d do it again!
Recently completed the 4 day 3 night classic Inka Trail with Trexperience. What an amazing experience. The company was professional from start to finish. They have high quality equipment, attentive… read more and incredibly hard working porters and chefs (the food was amazing, not what I was expecting when trekking and camping in the mountains) and of course our fun local guide Robbie who was first class with his fluent English, great knowledge of the Inkan/pre-Inkan sites we visited as well as history and culture of the local area and people. Special thanks for putting up with our endless questions (!) and making sure each of us in the group got what we wanted from the experience. And for the 4am daily coca tea !
Not an easy hike but achievable for various ages and fitness levels and worth ticking off the bucket list. I’d highly recommend Trexperience.
We had an extremely good experience with our group of 8 people on the 4D Inca trail. Our guides Robinzon and Walter were social, experienced and capable to help us… read more and push forward (even during hard times, because we suffered from stomach issues).
Guide Robinzon emphasized to enjoy, look around and dont Worry about the time of arrival. He really won our trust. Sometimes we needed a bit more detail at the final day at Machu Picchu.
Guide Walter restarted to hike as a guide with our English group, and we think het also had good talent +is a nice, modest guy.
Don’t hesitate to book with Trexperience; a smaller organization run by local people.
Great hiking experience. Pepe was great! Very knowledgeable, made this hike very entertaining and enjoyable. The views were amazing, and of course, at the end of the hike the breathtaking… read more views of Machu Pichu were unbeatable.
Carlos Ccolcca and Joao Sanchez were fantastic guides and really supportive and created fantastic positive energy through our 4 days. Super informative, very friendly and kept us wonderfully… read more on track and organized so we never felt rushed on the trail. Our chef, Julio Cesar, cooked meals that rivaled reassurance meals while on the trail. We even got a cake on the last night and a couple of beautiful sculptures and flambés.
Couldn’t recommend this experience more! 10 stars out of 5!
This tour will be the best thing you ever do!
4 days of beautiful scenery and amazing hosts. The tour guide Bernabe made the trip so special, was super friendly… read more and had lots of amazing information to share. We ate so well every day thanks to the chef Timo, some of the best food I’ve had in Peru and we even got a cake for our friends birthday!
Would highly recommend!
