The four day trek is a unique way to learn about and appreciate the local culture and nature. We had taken the train to Macchu Picchu a few years earlier… read more but the hiking trip really puts this unique wonder in perspective. Carlos and Joao were awesome guides; knowledgeable, experienced, patient. Given the restrictions by the ministry of culture— e.g. the locations of campsites and the facilities, the tour company has done an awesome job. The food by the chef Julio Cesar, was amazing: a high end introduction to the Peruvian cuisine. A team of porters had to transport everything on foot up to the three camp sites and cook the food on site. Everything was provided by the team- tours of Inca sites along the way and of course the tour of Machu Picchu at the end.
Our hosts Vannia and Jonah were incredible. They both were extremely knowledgeable and passionate about their work. The food was definitely the highlight of this tour. Very well prepared and… read more of high quality. The porters were amazing, always there to assist and help. I recommend this trip as a must, it’s one you should not miss out on experiencing. Thank you To all the team involved, till next time.
Our group of five took the 5 day Trexperience Salkantay Trek and it was really fantastic. We can only recommend it to anyone thinking of taking on the challenge (it… read more wasn’t actually as hard as we thought it would be but we are quite a fit group!). Our guide Adolfo had lots of great history and stories to tell, which were usually accompanied by ridiculously good food cooked by Amilcar and his team. Seriously, we ate better than we did in Cusco most nights!
The camping equipment was all of a very good standard, and the added touch of a hot water bottle on night one which was the coldest (-5C degrees) was hugely appreciated by all. In addition, the logistics of our trip w ere incredibly well organised thanks to Amilcar, Elmer, Wilburgh and Cecilio, meaning that nothing was amiss and we did everything in good time.
We were very unlucky with our weather on Day 5, and unfortunately the clouds never parted for us to get a full view of Machu Picchu, which Adolfo told us had never happened in his 15 years of experience (cries inside). Nonetheless, he was very cheerful and told us all the history very enthusiastically to still make it a memorable experience.
If we trek in Cusco again, I think Trexperience would certainly be our choice and our group would all highly recommend to others.
Thanks Adolfo and team!
The trip was amazing! Anything- from the organization and transportation, through the DELICIOUS food to the guidance through the sites was impeccable. Way exceeding expectations! Edy poured his heart into… read more giving us a glimpse of the Inca culture and we could all feel that special energy. Totally recommend! ❤️

My very friendly tour guide, Juvenal took me to an extended city tour around Cusco. He has a deep knowledge of Inca culture and history.
He even… read more brought with him a book to show me the photos and the history of each site. I learned a lot about the main Inca sites and enjoyed the tour very much.
It was one of the best city tours I ever have taken. I truly recommend this tour with Juvenal.
Our tour was amazing! Elvis, our tour guide was fantastic. He took care of our group of 10 people the entire journey. He was very experienced and we learned a… read more lot from him. The food was delicious, thanks to the chef Raymondo. The head porter Rubin organized and had everything we needed and more. We recommend these people to anyone looking to visit Peru and walk the Inca trail.

The trip was incredible good organised by our guide Vidal. He has such a great knowledge and experience about everything. Our cook Simon cooked the most amazing food I had… read more in 3 months of traveling in South America. For real, this during camping! For the budget traveler pay the extra money for this trip it is worthing it, don’t go with the cheaper option often don’t include entrances fee, least good food, smaller groups, etc. Thanks Samuel & Manuel & Felix for your hard work during these days! Cheers Leon
This Salkantay Trek was absolutely amazing!! Our Guide Carlos Colca was the best guide I have ever had!! He taught us all about the Inca history and interesting facts on… read more each day of every hike. Most importantly he always made sure we were all comfortable, happy, and provided an experience better than I could have imagined. Thank you Carlos for some of the best 5 days of my life!
Seriously this trek was challenging, but Trexperience had everything planned out perfect. Even down to the little details such as luggage storage or pick up, they have everything organized so you can have 5 days of no prob-llama’s.
Our chefs and porters worked so hard and made the trek so much easier for us. Thank you to our chefs Celso and Abel for the incredible food each and everyday! Every meal was fantastic!! It’s amazing what they can cook in the mountains.
I signed up for this trek with my girlfriend and there were and we started with four other strangers. Carlos turned us into family and I hope to stay connected with these new friends in the future.
Book the trek already, you won’t regret it.
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!
Awesome tour with Franklin. He was on time for every part and never rushed us. Also he is an amazing Photographer and knew every great spot for pictures. I highly… read more recommend this company and especially Franklin.
We had a wonderful time on the 4 day machu picchu trek – it was hard work but so rewarding. Arriving to the sun gate and seeing the sun come… read more up over machu picchu was magical and an experience I’ll never forget. The guides jose luis and filio were fantastic, knowledgable and were incredibly supportive during the hike. It was wonderful to arrive at the campsites with the tents erected, hot water waiting for us and a round of applause from the incredible porters. The food was very good and plentiful – complements to the great chef Senshe.
Highly recommend for backpackers and adventure seekers! Our guide Luis, was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to teach us about everything from foods, plants, peoples, rocks, etc etc.… read more He was super attentive to everyone and just over all good genuine guy. Our second guide, Melky, was so sweet and fun to talk to on the hikes! The chefs are incredible and we were always full with food and accommodated the specific dietary restrictions of some people in the group. We rented sleeping bag, sleeping pad, and hiking poles and tent were comfy! Loved waking up to hot tea every morning. Expect noise at night from animals, roosters and dogs are specifically loud. Literally a breathtaking experience with the physical demand of the hike and epic views. You wake up before sunrise and hike all day. Caution: Athleticism and fitness are essential to enjoying this hike. As an experienced backpacker, this is a difficult hike even with just a day pack. Expect steep ascents, switch backs into high altitude and slippery, loose rock, muddy descents into the jungle. Recommend hiking poles if you have knee problems. Trexperiece did a fantastic job, well organized, great value, and overall once in a lifetime experience!!!
Edwin was a great guide. Super friendly and helpful. Great accomadation and activities all very well organised. Thank you so much!
It was an amazing experience. Our guides William and Vincent were absolutely wonderful, provided us with great support and lots of useful information.Big thanks to William for always staying back… read more with us. We highly recommend this activity to everyone
We had a fantastic time hiking the Inca Trail with Trexperience – genuinely cannot fault the tour, the food (which was incredible, some of the best we had in peru… read more and great for vegetarians) and our knowledgeable and lovely tour guides, Vianna and Johan. The organisation of the trip was 10/10 and we felt so lucky to experience it with such a great tour group. If you’re looking for an ethical tour company that treats its staff (including porters and chefs) well, then look no further and book with Trexperience! I was moved to hear the stories of each member of staff and it was great to be introduced to them all on day 3 of the hike.
The only thing which i think could be improved is the clarity around how much to tip before attending – the recommended tip overall worked out around £150 per person which we hadn’t understood and therefore hadn’t brought with us beforehand, so we then went to a cash point. Of course its entirely discretionary whether and how much to tip, however more clarity before the trek would have been really appreciated so we didn’t turn up shortchanged.
We just finished the 4D3N Inca Trek and TreXperience took the best care of us. Robbie and his team made sure the whole family finished the trek. They encouraged us… read more along the way and kept a pace that wouldn’t overexert us. He knew all the cool spots to take breaks and he made sure we started early to beat the crowds. The cooks spoiled us with the most amazing food and the porters setup our tents so they’d be ready to slumber in once we got to our sites. I recommend this company to anyone wanting to go on their next Incan adventure!
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!
One of the best experiences of my life! Russell and Rosita were fantastic guides and chef Julio Caesar was next level. Definitely a challenging hike, but the views from the… read more trail and the knowledge gained made it all worth it. I would 10/10 recommend!
Really nice (tr)experience, great family. Had a blast with my girlfriend and a diverse group of travellers. The guides did a great job, the porter worked really hard and the… read more chef made a celebration of every meal. Would recommend 5/5!

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.
My tour guide was Agustin and he was amazing! He was on time, flexible and very informative! When we got off the train, Augustin had my name written on a… read more piece of paper waving it to make sure we could see him! We arrived at around 12:20pm but we were a little hungry, so we asked him if it’s possible we could eat. He agreed and told us to enjoy 1 hour for lunch then the tour would start afterwards. The tour didn’t finish until 5pm-ish so just calculate the time he spent with us. He took his time with us and there were only two of us in our private tour. So he really went into the details. He also took amazing pictures of us!! I would definitely ask him to be my tour guide again when I come back to Peru! And yes, he got a well deserved tip! ;)
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.

A special thanks goes to our lead guides Adolfo and Judy, always happy and there to help, sharing their knowledge and experience along the route.
Excellent!!! This 2-day short Inca Trail was definitely worth it. Tour guides Franklin and Sara were super welcoming, extremely friendly, and very knowledgeable about the area and its fascinating history.… read more They always put our needs first and were very organised when it came to transport and arrangements. Would certainly recommend this tour and Franklin and Sara because we had an excellent couple of days.
If I could rate higher than five stars I would. The MOST amazing trip!!! Perfect five days of an incredible trek, everything was meticulously planned and seamless. The food was… read more phenomenal, our chefs Celso and Abel took care to make three amazing meals a day with snacks throughout the day. The food was certainly a highlight of the trip— you will not go hungry with these guys. We had a group of 6 plus five porters and our amazing guide Carlos Colca. The atmosphere was so fun, we always had something to do and the equipment was high quality, clean and comfortable. The hotel on the last night was beautiful as well. I seriously cannot recommend this trip enough.

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).

Great food, great people and the best organisation of all the trips we had in Peru! Definetely worth every Penny, I would do it again! :)
We hiked past beautiful… read more scenery and though it was also exhausting and cold (bring enough warm clothing), we loved it with all the great food and conversations. Our guide was great and so was the whole team (cooks and horsemen). We were woken up with hot coffee or tea, had two matresses and a hot waterbottle to keep warm during the nights.
I can’t tell any favourit part of the tour, cause it was all great :)
Thanks a lot to Trexperience!
TreXperience is a world class tour operator that puts a high priority on safety and customer service. We highly recommend them! Our family of four (with 18 and… read more 13 year old) booked the 4D/3N Classic Inca Trail.
I was recovering from a prior cold/illness before the trek began so was already at a deficit. When you add in the unpredictability of altitude sickness, anything can happen. Needless to say, I struggled significantly to make it to campsite 1. I was extremely fatigued, nauseous, coughing, and my breathing was extremely labored.
Unfortunately, I didn’t sleep well that evening, could hear wheezing and my cough seem to get much worse. Knowing that Day 2 was the most difficult, to ascend an additional 4,000 feet at a very steep incline to reach a maximum altitude of 13,795 feet, I knew my physical limitations and didn’t want to put the entire group at risk. Therefore, I decided to descend.
I expected one of the porters to accompany me down, but it was not allowed. Instead, one of our tour guides, Sarita, escorted me down the mountain and went above and beyond to assist me and my 13 year old son (who voluntarily descended to look after his mother).
My daughter (18 year old) and husband continued onward and had an amazing experience. The trek was challenging albeit quite rewarding. Taking the trail gives you incomparable views from the sun gate that you cannot get trying to do Machu Picchu on your own.
We highly recommend TreXperience and ask for Sarita and Eddie!!
Sarita was AMAZING! Her English speaking skills were exceptional. She was kind, patient, and encouraging, telling me to go at my own pace and to stay hydrated. She was always willing to help, answer any questions, and provided great background knowledge about the Peruvian culture.
After a successful descent, Sarita went even further above and beyond. She assisted us in making hotel arrangements in Ollantaytambo and Agua Calientes, booked our train and bus tickets, escorted us to the train and hotel, offered to show us the Ollantaytambo archeological site or textile markets in our downtime, and successfully reunited us with my husband and daughter as they hiked into Machu Picchu on Day 4. Sarita was able to persuade the park ranger to allow us entry to the top terrace (Sun Gate ) to capture the postcard family photo of Machu Picchu.
All of the logistics of coordinating transport, lodging, and reuniting us with the group was not expected but greatly appreciated. We were very grateful to have Sarita by our side to help us with this process. Thank you TreXperience for being an outstanding tour operator with excellent guides.

Amazing tour with this company and our guide Franklin. He was very knowledgeable about each location and it’s history.
The trek was so well-planned, detailed, and organized! The views speak for themselves, but TreXperience and our guide really thought of everything to make sure we enjoyed our hike. Each… read more campsite was set up effortlessly, the food was delicious, and the entire team was very supportive the entire way. Our guide, Vidal, was so kind, personable, knowledgable about the Incan culture, and quick to share facts about our surroundings.

I would highly recommend booking through TreXperience for any treks you’re looking to do while in Cusco!

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!
