My husband and I booked this trek with another couple. It was great from start to finish. Our guide, Nilo, was very knowledgeable and patient with us, especially when we… read more were struggling with the altitude or with the trek itself. This was a challenging experience but a rewarding one. The chef, Celso was the best. Every meal was perfect. He even made me a birthday cake for my 40th bday, which was so thoughtful. The sous chef, Juan was great too and was always around to help. The horseman, Victor, worked hard preparing the campsite for us every day.
Everyone on this team worked extremely hard to make sure we were all happy. I’m very glad we booked this trip and had the team that we did!
Carlos was very funny with very good English and very knowledgeable about the Inca and Quechua people and their land. We had an amazing time

The guides Robinson and Sol were very caring and looked after us very well. They explained a lot and also told us fun stories in the evening.
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.
We had a fantastic 4 day hiking tour to Machu Picchu on the Luxury Private tour. The hikes are challenging and so beautiful. (Some on the internet made it sound… read more nearly impossible which it was not) We hiked about 10 km every day and reached camp by the afternoon and could rest for the next day. Edy, our guide, coordinated the 18 porters and the cooks to make our trip extraordinary. Edy like the porters is Quetchua, the descendents of the Inca. He taught us a lot about the culture, history, and mystical stories. He made us realize that the Inca trail is so special because it runs through the sacred valley bounded by the sacred mountains and river. The stunning views and learning about the Incas and the Quechua made the hike seem other worldly. The service was extraordinary by Trexperience. Our porters not only carried our things but also decorated our tents with pillows and dolls. The luxury tour provides a hot shower each night and massage. Vanessa gave us first class massages after the hike. Valentine, the head chef, made us beautiful, tasty meals and the food is served on real plates and utensils. I am also pleased to support Trexperience which is owned by two Quechuan brothers. The Inca trail provides great economic support to the Quechua and they are very happy to share this sacred valley with the hikers. We highly recommend booking your trip through Trexperience.

The food was also amazing, the… read more cooks followed the group everywhere and always prepare perfect food considering everyone’s preference (like vegetarian/vegan). Super nice experience!
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!!

Our experience was just extraordinary! The big role here played our tour guide Carlos, who was funny, caring, very experienced, friendly, had a bunch of amazing stories for us and possessed a great knowledge of the Ketchua (Inca) people. I have learned soo much from him.
Oh and the food is divine!! We ate like kings thanks to chef Julio Cesar!
I am really Grateful for this experience and would recommend it to anyone!!!!

* I’ll finish with this. Our tour guide, Vincent was absolutely exceptional. He was accommodating, flexible, and pleased to work with and hang with. I genuinely feel that Vincent is the reason this trip was over-the-top incredible! Thank you, Vincent! You’re the best!
Trexperience really does tick all the boxes. JJ and Yoner were awesome guides and were flexible to the variety of paces within the group. JJ was very knowledgeable and gave… read more us an extensive history lesson throughout. The porters simply are not human, the trip would be impossible without them. What the chefs were capable of using camp kitchens still boggles the mind; so much variety and taste. They really do get the little details right, hot/cold water to wash the day off, hot coca tea before you even leave the tent, regular water where possible. Even if other providers are cheaper, go with this company!

Truly once in a lifetime and I don’t think any other company could have made this a better time.
We had an amazing experience! The 2day activity had a nice balance of physical exersion, sight seeing, and culture. Our tour lead, Pepe, was very knowledgeable and fun. We are… read more so happy with this experience.
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 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.
A supposedly straightforward 3 hour private guide for Machu Picchu ended up being very challenging and was anything but straightforward before it even began.
First off, there was a… read more strike that prevented us from getting to Aguas Calientes the day before the scheduled activity. This resulted in plans being changed. Then, my personal hotspot was acting up so I had spotty internet access when not in our hotel. As a result, communication with the company to arrange for a meeting place became almost impossible. Tom (Travel Advisor) was very patient in dealing with me and our agonizing back and forth emails especially since I also didn’t have WhatsApp so there was no way I could directly communicate with our guide Nohemi. To add insult to injury, the people in charge of the buses that go up the mountain wouldn’t let us get on the bus until just 40 minutes before our scheduled entry time. The long line meant that we didn’t get to the entrance until just a few minutes before our 12 noon entry time.
Nohemi was patiently waiting for us at the entrance of the citadel when we finally showed up. We appreciated her patience with all the issues we’ve encountered. And she did a wonderful job giving us insights about Machu Picchu – she answered all our questions and dispelled false notions that we’ve had. Moreover, she also served as our de facto photographer. She offered to take our photos at every opportunity and knew how to frame shots. She’s very personable and certainly knows her stuff.
The tour was conducted at a very leisurely pace and we never felt rushed. She gave us every opportunity to just gaze at the marvel before us and soak it in. It took us close to 3 hours from start to finish and we felt that the time was ample enough to really enjoy the experience.
When the tour was over and we returned to Aguas Calientes, Nohemi still volunteered to take more pictures of us there and then when we asked her for restaurant recommendations, she not only gave us one. She personally walked us to the restaurant and spoke with the staff there to tell them about our preferences. THAT, was above and beyond what was necessary.
Overall, I highly recommend this company.
We had the most incredible couple of days! Our tour guide Pepe was so knowledgeable and passionate and made sure we were comfortable and having fun the whole way up.… read more I will never forget this trip and would one hundred percent recommend to everyone!
Amazing experience! Such a supportive team, amazing food, and I learned so much! Would recommend to anyone.
The total experience was amazing. The people, the history, the culture. The work ethic of all involved. The knowledge and patience of the guides. It was a once a lifetime… read more experience. We were made to feel as family not customers.
The whole trek was made by the incredible staff, our tour guide Vincente was amazing at making everyday perfect. We had a few issues within our group with people getting… read more sick but he went out of his way to make sure we were looked after. The chef Julio went above and beyond with the food it was incredible and especially with me and my partner being vegetarian. The 2 porters Abel and Deonicio were attentive, the hard work they put in to make sure everything has arrived to camp, they prepare everything for your arrival they work so hard.
Even our horse man Ali was the best.
The tour itself is great beautiful surroundings and scenery, the trek to salkantay was difficult but worth it.
We had a couple of changes to our plans but for the better, we ended up going to the hot springs and zip lining and it was THE best experience, the zip lining is insane, i am so glad Vincente added this into our tour.
Unfortunately the views from Machu Picchu was foggy but the knowledge Vincente had about Inca history was second to none.
I tend not to leave reviews but this experience warrants one. It was an amazing experience and can’t recommend it enough!! Each campsite was beautiful with great views and I… read more travelled in a group of 6 so it was possible to get to know everyone well and made the experience even more special.
Carlos Colca our guide looked after us, encouraging us and making sure we got to each campsite safely with information about the places we trekked through. On the day we went up to Mschu Picchu he was organised and quick and we were the first group to get into the site. He was knowledgeable about history of the site and was able to answer all our questions.
Our chef Celso and sous chef Abel, consistently provided us with delicious meals throughout the trek with plenty of traditional Peruvian dishes. They also provided us with daily snacks which kept us going until our next meal.
Throughout this whole experience the attention to detail and thoughtfulness was apparent. From hot water bottles provided on the first night where the temperatures dropped during the night, to storage facilities for our duffel bags on the last day allowing us to explore Aguas Calientes unencumbered before heading back to Cusco.
I genuinely can’t recommend this company and this trek enough!! You will not be disappointed and it will be an unforgettable experience!!
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.
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!
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.

From start to finish, she was very knowledgeable and… read more respected one’s physical limitations when you are reaching 5000m above sea level and just come off of a 4 day Inca Trail! I would imagine most companies just pick you up, take you there and then drop you back but this tour had GOURMET breakfast and lunch included prepared by the genius chef that is Lorenzo with his assistant Miguel looking out onto the mountain range. The driver James was equally incredible driving for several hours on roads that many would not dare to try.
What else can be said. Amazing views the entire trip, physically demanding at times definitely need to be in good shape, however it was absolutely worth it. This is an… read more experience I will carry me for the rest of my life. Eddy and Sol were the best tour guides anyone can ask for, always helpful, willing to lend a hand at all times, they treated all of us on the trek like family.
