I loved the Salkantay Trek w/ TreXperience. My guide, Nilo, was fantastic. A great person and full of information about Inca history, Machu Picchu and the Cusco area. The chefs,… read more Raymundo and Johan, were fantastic as well. Food was amazing. Augustine, the horseman, was a consummate professional. I recommend this trip to anyone!
This was an amazing trip that was incredibly well run and thoughtfully arranged! Everything dramatically exceeded expectations, particularly the Trexperience team. Our guide Carlos Colca was helpful, knowledgeable and facilitated… read more a great group dynamic that was important as a solo traveler who had never done a group trip like this before. The chefs Celso and Abel worked nonstop preparing incredible three course meals in tents at 13k feet. Could not be happier or more impressed with how everything went. No prob-llamas.
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 did Huchuy Qosqo Trek to Machu Picchu. The tour guide Manolo was excellent encouraging us all the way. The trek was bit challenging than we thought but we… read more had a great support team with us all the way.
The trip was a truly an amazing experience. The scenery was simply stunning, it is a journey that makes the visit to Machu Picchu extra special. A special mention to… read more our guide Herbeth, our cook Valentine and the rest of the team who supported us throughout. Herbeth was extremely knowledgeable, supporting and friendly, a great person and guide. And without Valentine and his excellent and plentiful food we definitely wouldn’t have made it!
Weather was excellent too but do bring warm clothes for June.
I would recommend this trip to anyone (who has good fitness) to complete this trek!
Russel and Rosa gave us an amazing tour with lots of information on the history of inca sites and information along the trail. We visited many picturesque places and managed… read more to be the first group to Macchu Picchu helping avoid major crowds. Julio Cesar was our chef who cooked many delicious and filling meals and catered to dietary requirements.
Jose, the tour guide was an absolute standout. I was on a no-fuss business trip and had the weekend to acclimatise in Cusco. My colleague and I were after… read more a tour which was efficient, took us to all the right places and required minimal effort on our part – this was that tour.
From the moment Jose picked us up at our hotel, we were treated with the best logistically organised and informative tour we could have hoped for. This was made possible by Jose, given his extensive 13 years experience across the continent as a tour guide he made our journey easy and stress-free. He also taught us how to take the BEST Iphone pics (as a value-add) and was more than happy to share story and a laugh.
What a delightful, stress-free tour. There is no way we would have been able to see what we did in the time with as little stress were it not for Jose and this tour. Well worth it and will be recommending to others.
Our trip was absolutely amazing! Vicente was the best guide we have ever had on a tour. We brought our 8yr old on the trek, and a day… read more later, he also misses Vicente. He was equal parts fun and easy going as he was organized and professional. The entire group was truly fantastic. Jorge, Demetrio, and Julien were brilliant with meals. It was really restaurant quality food in the middle of a mountain. Everything was made fresh and traditionally. Thank you so much to Vicente, Jorge, Demetrio, and Julien for making every single moment of this trip memorable.
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.
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!
The entire trip was impeccably planned. Pepe and Filio were extremely knowledgeable guides! The chef Sinche was amazing the food and the presentation were top notch, couldn’t believe it given… read more the circumstances of being so far away from a big city.
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! ❤️
We recently took part in the Salkantay Trek and loved every minute. Our guide Manolo was a constant source of positive energy from dawn til dusk (or after dusk)! He… read more told us stories of the Incas, of the stars and of the different Quechua communities and kept us entertained when the going (altitude) got tough. Melchor served up excellent food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and somehow managed to bake a pie and a cake after a long day of trekking. Pedro and Juan were excellent su chefs and porters, waking us up with hot coca tea in the mornings and ensuring we had warm water to wash our hands and faces with after a long day of hiking, and even bringing us hot water bottles to keep us warm on the first and second night.
Communication from Trexperience in the run up to the trek was fantastic. The whole trek was organised really well, from collection from our hostel on the first day to drop off on the last day (including collecting our luggage from the office and then the onward travel from the office back to our hostel). Everything ran smoothly without the slightest glitch. Would highly recommend!
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.
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.
Amazing experience, sumac! Lovely team firstly from Edy and Yoner (our guides with unlimited hype and unlimited information across the four days), Orlando + his sous chef (and their amazing… read more food, even baking a dairy free birthday cake at altitude ), Jezus (attending to our every need) and Porfirio with all the amazing porters (how they do it I don’t know!).
The route was incredible, every day breath-taking. The opportunity to understand the Quechua and Inkan culture and history was invaluable. Of course Macchu Pichu was incredible but the highlight, by far, was the days before.
Would recommend to anyone! Thank you to 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!
Fantastic Guides Carlos and Joao expertly led our group on a challenging but beautiful and informative trek. They made sure everyone was safe and having fun the whole time. Food… read more by chef Julio Cesar was fantastic as was the service by our amazing set of attentive porters. Highly recommended!
Fantastic 4 days, our guides were knowledgable about the fauna and flora. The food was fantastic and catered for all our individual needs.
First night hot water bottles In… read more our tents, made all the difference to a chilly night. Awoken with coffee in our tent followed by a great breakfast set us up for the day.
Arriving at Machu Picchu they were knowledgeable and happy as ever to answer questions and take us through this truly breath taking place.
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.
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!
Hike to Machu Picchu was amazing, good organisation, delicious food and what was the most important – our guide Felix showed us and told a lot about history of Inca,… read more local culture and tradition.
I can really recommend this company and for sure the best guide Felix!
Anna from Poland :)
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.
This trip was a long time bucket list and it was MAGICAL. Our guides, Edy and Joao and team were knowledgeable about history, flora, fauna, anything we asked. They were… read more patient with varying trekking abilities within our group. The kindness and hospitality of the entire team was extraordinary. I will remember the beauty of the trip and people for a lifetime.
But the small things…
Because I asked, experiencing a Quechua ceremony as we started our final day to Machu Picchu was truly special.
We mentioned a significant birthday of one of our group. We didn’t ask for anything special but a birthday cake and singing from the entire team was a special memory. The food was amazing on the entire trip but how does a two-layer decorated cake appear from a cook tent!?!
Thank you Edy and Joao and the entire team!
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.

Guides were professional and cared about the participants’ needs. Chef prepared a great variety of meals which were very tasty. It was an amazing tour with great people and beautiful… read more views. I fully recommend it.
Our guide William and the assistant guide johnner were both brilliant and made the trip fun and engaging for all 10 of us doing the trail. Their energy was infectious… read more and they were extremely accommodating of the different needs of all members of the group.
Given that we were eating on the mountains, they standard of the food was incredible – it was very varied and better than most of the food you would buy in the restaurants in the city. The portion sizes were large and there was always more than enough for all members and then some.
I’m not sure if I would’ve had the same experience if I used another provider so I was very happy with my choice to go with trexperience on this occasion.
Our trek was amazing. Any challenges we faced with altitude or other, our guide Nilo made sure we were taken care of. His explanations were very interesting, always with a… read more little humor on the side. He coordinated unbelievably well with the head chef, Zenobio, who’s cooking was just divine. Him and his team, Herbert and Alberto, were always so friendly and added so many beautiful personal touches to our meals, we were always looking forward to the next one. We are leaving to our next destination with a smile and will definitely recommend this trek to our friends and family.
This was such an amazing experience! Our guide Charly was great at explaining about the flora and fauna, and telling us about the history of the ruins. The first day… read more hike is challenging but possible for most people to manage, and it is definitely worth it!!!
We would recommend a trip with Trexperience because they gave us plenty of information beforehand, and the entire trip went smoothly and exceeded our expectations.
The views were immaculate as was the food! Rob and Sol were the best guides ever really funny and knowledgeable about the history of the place.
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!
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!
Despite being a solo traveller, my guide Sara made it seem as if I went for the trip with a friend. 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.
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
We had the most amazing time with the best tour guide, Charly. Charly is a man of multiple trades – he is so knowledgable about the history and culture of… read more the Inca Trail. We also found out that he is also a great photographer and a published author.
Although the Inca Trail is challenging, Charly was patient with each climber who climbed at different speed.
In addition, he introduced us to the Peruvian culture such as explaining us about the drinks that the porters were drinking.
We also had the best cook, Carmelo. He was amazing with his skills and creative with his dishes. I was always impressed by the meals.
Then, there were the impressively strong porters who were so friendly and welcoming.
It is so amazing to hear the great things that this tour company does for the porters like insurance and being the one of the first companies to employ women.
I honestly believed that we picked the best tour company. Go with a local company like this one!
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.
We did the city tour and Sacred Valley Tour with Christian and Elvis who were fantastic. I would highly recommend a tour with them.
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. He led us at the perfect pace, and understood when we needed to pause for a photo or breathing break. I would highly recommend booking through TreXperience for any treks you’re looking to do while in Cusco!
I had one of my best experiences during the 4-days Inca-trail hike with the TreXperience. The trail and scenery is spectacular. But it could be really difficult without our experienced tour guide… read more and team (great chef and porters). Here are good and bad things about TreXperience:
– Great great team, specifically the guid (Robinson) and the chef(Julio Secar) (see below)
– Great organization of the whole trip: Everything was reasonably scheduled (wake up, food, sleep times).
– Reasonable plans: All the stuff was planned in a way that all of our group enjoyed.
– Helpful orientation before the trip and pick-up and drop-off plus storing our loguages during our trip.
Bad/Suggestions: Really cannot think of anything!
About our guide and chef:
Our tour guide(Robbinson) was one of the main factors that made our experience great. He was very patient. While he let faster members go ahead and enjoy their speed, he always followed the last person (the slowest) and made sure that they were OK and enjoying their trip. He had a really good sense of humor and he was very knowledgeable not only about the historical sites and Incas’ history, but also about the nature there. He showed us a lot of very cool stuff about how Inca’s would use nature to survive.
Also the chef was incredibly good. He made a lot of different foods (mostly Peruvian) with really good quality (every time I wished I could eat more).
And finally, none of these would be possible without our super nice local porters.
