Edwin was a great guide. Super friendly and helpful. Great accomadation and activities all very well organised. Thank you so much!
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!
Awesome 4 days I will never forgot!
Thanks to Saranita and Charlie, the porters & chefs! I definitely can recommend this tour to everybody!
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!
This was a great experience! I would recommend it to all! The inca trail was beautiful and our tour guide, Pepe, was wonderful! He gave us great information about incase… read more and their history, as well as the inca trails. The first day was a beautiful hike, which was challenging enough! The second day was all about Machu Picchu. We spent the night in a hotel, which was refreshing. I recommend this tour to anyone who is a hiker!
The amazing views, all the meals by great cook Lorenzo, Machu Picchu were the best!
We had a small group of 4 and were about the same strength. That… read more helped a lot. The guide Miguel was very supportive and pushed us to our limits. To my surprise I was able to reach more than i expected.
It was amazing, but a very hard Trek.
Honestly I dont know if we had booked it, knowing it was that hard…. Nevertheless this is an experience that we will never forget and made us really proud of our achievement.
Nature, Inka’s elements with all their history, great food and a lot of fun. I think this is the best away to get to machu picchu!
Thanks to our guides… read more NILO and YONER I had the opportunity to better understand the Inka colture and to have a lot of fun! These 2 guys are incredible! As well as the chef’s team that provided us such great food, also the dishes for the vegetarian were incredible. I raccomando you
Amilcar, the chef; Elmer the suis chef y Mozo Hernozo a frat waiter!
I suggest also to do the inka trail and not other trails because of alla the Inka elements and because once I get to machu pichu, I swear, it will taste different than just taking a bus or a train in one day!
Good food made by Julio Cesar
Good hike guided by Juan Jose

The best bits were the food, there’s loads of delicious food. And the views on the 3rd day are amazing. The guide was good fun and very organised. Everything went… read more very smoothly.
I went on the Classic Inca Trail 4 day 3 night hike. We had two absolutely amazing guides Sarah and Charlie. They went above and beyond to make sure we… read more had everything we needed to be comfortable and have a incredible time. I expected to eat well but the food exceeded my expectations! I thought we ate like kings and queens! I didn’t bring gloves because it was hot during the day in Cusco but I wish that I had because we ended up in an ice pellet storm on day 2. It was challenging but SO rewarding!!! I am so glad I chose to see Machu Picchu this way instead of the train and bus. Seeing it through the sun gate was fantastic! I did train before this hike and would recommend doing that because it is much harder to hike at altitude! Overall I had the absolute time of my life!!! Would highly recommend Trexperience and would do it myself again!
We did the 1/2 day city tour of Cusco and full day Sacred Valley tour with Johny. He was very knowledgeable about the culture and history of Peru. 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). He was a delight to be around!
Great trip, food was really tasty thanks to the chefs. The trail and inca ruins were amazing. Thank you to the porters for all their hard work which made the… read more trek easier and more enjoyable. Also thank you to Sol and Robynzon for being great tour guides.
We had a truly amazing experience with this company. The trail and the views were absolutely astonishing, but what made the 4 day experience great was the team.
… read more /> Robinzon and Manolo were the best guides one could ask for; they were both incredibly versed in the trail/sites, the Inka history and culture. They took the time, and gave us the time, to explore every site on the way to Machu Picchu. And on top of that, they provided us with a wealth of personal and cultural information from their own Quechua (Inka) backgrounds, which made this a truly authentic experience.
I also have to say that our porters, Grupo Pisaq, made this trip run as smoothly and as professionally as anyone hiking 4 days in extreme altitudes could ask for. The huge, added bonus were the 3 daily meals which were local flavor and on par with any top-notch Peruvian restaurant that you’d find out in "civilization". Thank you for everything!
It was an amazing experience!! Two awesome guides, Edi and Sol who make the all experience magical! 4 hard days but totally worth it. Beautiful team and an unforgettable adventure!… read more Trexperience all the way!
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!
Incredible experience! 4 days of trekking, camping and seeing incredible sights! The mountains, ruins and skies (day and night) were amazing. Our guide Robby was fantastic! So knowledgeable, Incan heritage… read more and grown up in a village in the mountains so knows his stuff! Our porters were also amazing! And the food was so so good! Cannot recommend this experience with te experience enough!
Amazing experience from start to finish. Our tour guide Vincent did an outstanding job and kept us safe and informed the whole time. The whole staff was professional… read more and super hard working.
My wife and I did a private 4 day tour where we had a private guide, 5 porters and a cook. My wife was 6 months pregnant, but was able to hike the whole thing with no issue. It can be a bit challenging, but as long as you acclimate like 3-4 days before in Cusco or the sacred valley you will be fine.
We booked 4 months out and they maintained god communication. They were flexible on meeting up 2 days before the trip to give us the overview and the duffels we would pack. Of note you can put more weight in your duffles as the trip progresses, because as you eat food the overall load of the porters lightens.
The first day is easy. The staff pitches camp for you in full each day. And they set up a private dining tent. The second day is challenging since you do about ~4200 ft of elevation change. There are a lot of steep stone steps after you come down from dead woman’s pass. Poles help a lot, but your knees will be sore after. The third day is some good ascent, but not as bad as the day before, but be prepared for a long day with lots of steps down, it is insanely steep, the last day is easy and Machu Picchu is great.
Lunch in Agua Caliente is good, but you have to wait a few hours for the train, it only runs once in the afternoon. We got an hour massage to kill time and sally enjoyed it.
As a recommendation I would say the more time you have to acclimate the better, the altitude can take down strong men. Also read about the area in advance and learn about Inca history, it makes it much more enjoyable. Bring extra to tip the guides and staff. You will have an immense amount of respect for what they do by the end of trip.
You will not regret booking this hike.
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!
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

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.
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!

It is a journey that you just can’t explain! You have to experience it! Being in the Andres! Wow! Our guide (Carlos), horsemen (sorry I can’t… read more think of their names), chef (Rolando), sous chef, waiter (Martin and Haviar) – the team was incredible!!!! These guys deserve all the credit! It is amazing what they do!!!! Up early, bed late, waiting on us! Then, they literally run up the mountain with our gear on their backs to set up camp and prepare the next meal!
Carlos was wonderful and gentle with me when I struggled with the heights and the body pain. He even helped carry my daypack.
I couldn’t have asked for a better support team!
My favorite part of this amazing experience was the incredible scenery, and of course the reward at the end of seeing Machu Picchu! Our guides, Carlos Ccolcca and Joao Sanchez,… read more did a great job of providing the information and help we needed to be successful during this very challenging trek. I couldn’t have done this without their help and support. The porters and the chef, Julio Cesar, were fantastic, having everything set up for us when we arrived at camp —and the food was great! Even at camp, chef not only prepared a wonderful variety of more than we could eat, but the presentation was unbelievable. We even had fresh flowers on the tables! Our morning started with hot cocoa tea delivered to our tents, then a breakfast for champions. After hiking all morning, a terrific lunch was served, At the end of a full day of trekking, we enjoyed “tea time” popcorn, crackers and jam, hot chocolate, and of course tea. Then came our 4-5 dish dinner! Every day was different, deliciously prepared, very creatively presented.
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.
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.
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.
Had a great experience with TreXperience. The guides were friendly and knowledgable and the food! Holy cow, the food was good, and there was a ton of it. The chef… read more even baked a couple cakes on the trail. No clue how. Then, of course, there was Machu Picchu.
We had a bit of trouble with our luggage and TreXperience bent over backward to make sure we still had a great experience.
I rented a sleeping bag, and they provided a liner and a mat. They also provided a poncho which came in pretty handy.
Overall, a great trek.
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!!
The Classic Salkantay trek introduces not only the eyes but the soul to many different beautiful natural sights throughout Peru, all leaving you breathless (literally). It was my first trekking… read more experience, and it wouldn’t have gone as well if it wasn’t for our guide Nilo. Not only was Nilo an excellent guide, who was well versed in the knowledge surrounding the region and history, but he was also a great leader who would always go out of his way to make sure everyone was safe. He would stay with the last person in the group, making them not feel like a burden and helping with all of our needs along the trek. We were always met with great nutritious meals delivered by our chef Vacilio and sous chef Eusebio, which would enable us to travel great distances. Lastly, our personal belongings would always greet us at our campsites or before meals due to the extraordinary diligence of our horseman Frank. I had a wonderful time and cannot wait to go on more trekking experiences.
A fun, at times challenging walk accompanied with great guides (Rosa and Russel) who explained numerous Inca sites along the way.

Thank you to the rest of the team (Toribio and Rosalio) as well that made this adventure simply amazing . I did the Lares trail with my friend , we plan on going on the other treks in the future and will take as many of the original team as we can , especially Mari .
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.

Overall, a great trip. The hike is beautiful, food is amazing, and the guides are great. They do so much to make your trip as focused as possible on the… read more hikes and views. The tents are pitched for you, the cooks are fantastic, they provide equipment, and the guides have lots of knowledge. You learn a lot as well. The hike itself is quite hard, even if you are decently active. That is cause of the altitude. Day two is very challenging but the third day is amazing.
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 very positive experience with TreXperience. The company did an excellent job at keeping us well-informed about what to bring and expect for the trip as well as… read more updating us with changes to the region’s rules and regulations in light of COVID (mask requirements, COVID testing/vaccination protocol). There was a mandatory briefing the night before the trip to allow us to meet our tour guide, review the itinerary and give us an opportunity to ask any questions which I thought was very helpful.
The TreXperience team for my group consisted of tour guide Nilo Uscamayta, chef Celso, sous-chef Juan, and horseman Victor. I highly recommend this team – every single member worked so hard at making us feel welcome and as comfortable as possible on this journey. Nilo was very patient, empathetic and knowledgeable – some of us struggled during parts of the trek with injury or illness, and Nilo was very patient even though we moved slowly. He always encouraged us to move at a comfortable pace. He always asked how we were feeling and if there’s anything he could do to help. Nilo was very knowledgeable and was consistently giving us interesting information on the landscape, culture and history of the region. He also knew the best spots in Machu Picchu to capture beautiful photos and was always enthusiastic to take photos for us.
Every meal prepared by chef Celso and sous-chef Juan was impressive. They are truly talented to be able to prepare delicious meals with just a few tools and without a working kitchen. They even found out that it was my friend’s birthday and whipped up a personalized cake for her! The Pachamanca meal was very interesting and really demonstrated the passion that the chef and sous-chef have for cooking. Our horseman, Victor, was very attentive and always made sure that our belongings were readily available and that the campsite was setup before we arrived.
If you are considering doing a guided trek to Machu Picchu, I highly recommend this tour with TreXperience. Some parts of the trek may be difficult, but it is manageable and very scenic. You will have a very memorable time, especially if you are lucky enough to have the team that we had. Don’t think about it anymore and just book it :) !
