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.
Edy & Rosa were amazing guides! Raymundo made the best local meals and Juvenal (head portor) made sure we were always taken care of from throwing out mats to nap… read more on to ensuring our tents were pitched asap. All the portors went above and beyond and genuinely cared we were as comfortable as possible. Portors would run ahead of us to make sure they got lunch or dinner ready before we arrived on site. Edy and Rosa were fun, super informative on the Inca history, showed us the coca blessing, and was very adaptive to our situation and group’s needs. This hike wasn’t just about a hike and the views. It was about the history of the Inca’s, taste Peruvian food, and to make great friends and learn about the local culture! I would definitely recommend Trexperience to anyone who is thinking about any hikes to Machu Picchu!
This was the highlight of our time in Cusco. Vicente was incredible, knowledgeable, friendly, and took a genuine interest in us. Highly recommend him for all tours.
Vincent, William, samuel these guys were amazing super funny and really informative!! Gave us loads of history about the Inca trails and Machu Picchu and the food was absolutely amazing… read more 10/10 would recommend !!!!
What an awesome trip, fantastic guides, porters and cooks – food amazing, even at 4,600 mtrs and nothing was too much for them. Knowledge at Machu Picchu was awesome, giving… read more so much insight into the history of the Inca people. Worth every penny.
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!
What an exciting 4 days! Russell and Rosa were excellent and patient guides who were knowledgeable and fun the whole time! Huge shoutout to Chef Julio Cesar for the truly… read more amazing food (seriously it was like four course meals every time). Highly recommend!

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!
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!
We had the best time during the short Inca trail hike! Our guide Jose Luis was knowledgeable, very enthousiastic and kind. We were briefed extensively a day before the trek,… read more so we felt really prepared. The group wasn’t too big, only 7 people in total, which was nice. The hotel we stayed at was really nice and clean as well. It was truly an experience of a lifetime!
What A Trip!! Russell and Rosa were such excellent guides for this classic Inca Trail trip. We learned so much history along the way while being challenged with breath taking… read more hiking trails. The support staff and Julio Cesar our chef made the trip even more amazing with delicious local Peruvian dishes and comfortable camping experiences. I made great friends along the way despite knowing individuals for only 4 days. Machu Picchu is the icing on the cake as you enter this beautiful scenic ruin city. I promise you will not regret booking a trip with TreXperience!!
I was originally due to do the Lares trek, but after it unfortunately had to be cancelled, Trexperience were very accommodating in switching me to the Salkantay trek at no… read more extra cost. I had my reservations about the physical demands of the trek (I have asthma and my physical fitness is not amazing) but was supported by the group and Trexperience team to complete it. For example, I was able to ride the emergency horse the last 20 minutes or so to the highest point when I was struggling with the altitude, and at other times was encouraged by my fellow trekkers and tour guide.
Our tour guide Mickey (Miguel) was fantastic and cheerful, often cracking jokes and sharing facts about the local flora. He was very patient and encouraging as I struggled physically with some parts of the trek, and never rushed me. He was also very passionate and knowledgeable about the Salkantay trail and Machu Pichu itself.
The views you see along the way are breathtaking, and the food is unbelievable. Our chefs Ronaldo, René and Oscar created the most delicious, wholesome and creative meals even at the most remote locations. They even made an impromptu birthday cake for my friend/ fellow trekker!
The horse boys Simon and Nelson, along with the rest of the staff, did a fantastic job at taking care of our belongings and preparing the campsites. The tents were roomy and comfortable, and we were provided with hot water bottles every night. An absolute highlight of the whole experience was definitely the beautiful clear night skies!
Overall, I couldn’t recommend the Salkantay trek and Trexperience enough – it was so incredible and well-organised, and the group felt like family.
Absolutely the best experience of my life. Edy and Yoner and the whole TreXperience team were absolutely the best we could possibly imagine. We knew it would be an awesome… read more experience but they took it to the next level. Every possible thing was taken care of and made easier for the group. They whole group loved it!

Our guides Pepe and Filio were very knowledgeable and provided everything we needed to have a great 4 days. The food was also great, kudos to chef Senche. Very accommodating… read more to different diets as well.
I was looking for an alternative trekking experience and came across Huchuy Qosqo +Inca Trail 4D offered by Trexperience.
I’m a solo traveler so I booked just for… read more myself and it also turned out I was the only person (still low no. of tourists in post-pandemic and everyone goes for Inca or Salkantay trek) to book this trekking on specific dates.
Trexperience therefore basically organised a private trekking for me. For the first two days it was just me, my guide Maribel, chef Samuel and sous-chef Cipriano trekking to Huchuy Qosqo. And they took such a great care of me. Maribel is a fantastic and passionate guide with great English. She was my mom, my sister, my friend, my guide, my everything for two days. She’s also super knowledgeable about all the fauna and flora in the Andes and also she knows a lot about the Inca history. I could have not wished fot a better guide than Maribel!
Samuel and Cipriano were a great company too. And they were preparing delicious food. It was a true gourmet experience! Meals were big and they prepared variety of delicious food.
Maribel, Samuel and Cipriano were like family to me and I’m so grateful for the time we spent together. The last day they also taught me how to make a traditional Peruvian bbq! :)
Oh and I highly recommend Huchuy Qosqo trekking, beautiful landscapes and views. A lot of llamas and alpacas but no tourists or crowds like on Inca/Salkantay trek.
The next two days I joined a small group of five for the Short Inca trail. Also a great experience and I recommend asking for Jose Luis (Pepe). He is fun and experienced Machu Picchu guide!
Overall I highly recommend Trexperience!

Our guides Charly and Sarita have been attentive, knowledgeable, friendly and have truly made this adventure for us! We have been supported by a fantastic team of porters and have been spoiled by incredible food from the chefs.

* 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!
I was super nervous ahead of starting the trip but wow it exceeded every expectation! They very quickly put my nerves at ease and I enjoyed every second!! We were… read more in a small group of 5 which was brilliant! The whole team including guide, chef and porters were so friendly and supportive!

great experience- the food was amazing and the guides were friendly and helpful. definitely worth it to see machu picchu!
I booked classic Inca Trail 4 days with TreXperience on June 22, 2022 to June 25, 2022. My group had 5 people(1 couple from Denmark, 1 couple from London and… read more myself from Canada).
Our tour guide is Luis Jose Flores. We could call him Pepe but we called him MASTER after 2 days. He’s very calm, patience, funny, honest and has so much knowledge about Inca history and he loves and passionate about his country. He showed us how to pray to Pachamama with coca leaves. We all love it. He’s very well organized and timing our schedule very well making sure we have the best time. He’s even brought us the train station at the end of the trip and tell us where to wait for the train to go back to Cusco. We had so much great memory with him.
Our chefs Raymundo is an amazing chef. Menu change everyday from breakfast to lunch and dinner. We all love teatime everyday before dinner with freshly made popcorn right beside us. All the meals he made were so fresh and delicious. We all love his caramelized banana flambé with Pisco.
Porters we had 11 porters for 5 people. They work so hard. They carried our personal belongings, foods, tents, stove..every time we arrived to campsite they applauses us and bring us warm water to clean our face, hands to our tents. Warm Coca tea every morning to our tents and again warm water with their smile. They treated us like KINGS and QUEENS. Once we wanted to try to carry their backpack to see how heavy they’re carrying to climb up and down to mountains. We appreciate a lot for what they’re doing to give us the most comfortable possible.
TreXperience is very well organized for prepare our pick up dropping off on time and very friendly driver. Thank you for this great experience. I appreciate very much for the whole team made my vacation so memorable .
