This was such an amazing experience. From tour guides Edy and Rosa, the porters from Pisac, and our amazing chef, this Trexperience team was absolutely amazing! They went above and… read more beyond to make this trip a once in a lifetime experience. The food rivaled anything you could find in the nicest restaurant, and the porters were just superhuman. They carried all the bags, equipment, and supplies, they beat us to camp, set up and cooked, and readied our tents and campsite. They cleaned, packed up, and still beat us to the next site in time to make it as comfy for us as possible. I would highly recommend this experience with the Trexperience team!!
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 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.
We had Charlie as our tour guide and he was awesome! Really nice and friendly and very knowledgeable about nature and Incan history. I was really thankful that he stopped… read more multiple times during our hike so I could take breaks and he made sure no one was left behind (we had a mix of faster hikers and slower hikers in our group). Charlie was also a really good photographer and will take many many beautiful pictures of you! Our trail tickets only let us into Machu Picchu once (no bathrooms inside Machu Picchu), however, my boyfriends stomach was not feeling well and we needed to use the restroom mid tour, Charlie was able to talk to the ticketing counter to get us an exception so we could re-enter Machu Picchu again. We absolutely loved the packed lunch on our hike, however we did not enjoy the dinner chosen by the tour company. The restaurant they chose was low quality with limited options. We ended up going to eat somewhere else after the group dinner was over.
I had a great time on the 2-day Inca trail with Pepe! He provided very thorough explanations all throughout the trek and answered my many questions. With his experience as… read more both a ranger at Machu Picchu and a tour guide, we got to hear some unique stories and information about the site. During the hike there were many stops to accommodate the speed of everyone in the group. The lunch with veg option was more than enough and really yummy. The train option was epic. I highly recommend it!
Truly one of the most incredible experiences of my life! My husband and I booked the private 2-day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu through Trexperience because of the great reviews,… read more and they exceeded every expectation. We were lucky enough to have Vincent as our guide – he was the best! He was a wonderful storyteller, a patient and encouraging guide, and very flexible with personalizing the experience for us. He had an answer for every question we had, and would occasionally ask us questions that we wouldn’t know the answer to – resulting in some of the most ridiculous jokes I’ve ever heard. Vincent also had a true respect and reverence for his history and traditional Inca customs, it was a beautiful experience to learn from him. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide to lead us to Machu Picchu!
Before starting the trail, we decided to stay overnight in Ollantaytambo to have a later wake up time (7AM pickup instead of 4AM, highly recommend). We decided to go with the private tour instead of a group because we wanted to go at our own pace, and honestly it wasn’t that much more expensive than the group tour – especially worth it when we considered the level of effort to get out there in the first place. We started the day on the Panoramic train to KM 104. Try to get seats on the side by the river. It’s beautiful from every angle, but that was definitely the place to get the best views. After getting off the train, we crossed the bridge and were greeted by an Andean Motmot! Such a lucky bird sighting! We were also fortunate to do the hike at the end of April, there were thousands of different orchids blooming on the trail.
Right away, you encounter the Inca Site of Chachabamba, directly across the river. It’s a great start to the trail before the ascent. The first half of the hike up to Wiñay Wayna was entirely uphill, it’s challenging but definitely doable. For reference, my husband and I are in our early-30s and moderately fit – we exercise regularly, but nothing can really prepare you for the altitude. Definitely stay in Cusco a couple days, drink lots of coca tea, and do what you need to do to adjust. After about 2.5 hours, we entered into a shaded area with a beautiful waterfall that we took a nice rest at. About 20 minutes from there, we reached Wiñay Wayna! This site alone is seriously worth the effort, it’s unbelievable from every direction. From there, the trail becomes a lot easier. Not as much continuous incline, Vincent referred to this part as "Inca flat" (basically quick ups and downs for the remainder of the hike). After one last push up a couple of daunting staircases, we reached the Sun Gate! It’s a surreal and spiritual experience, I can’t really put into words how special it was to see Machu Picchu in the distance. A little bit more walking from Intipunku, and we arrived at the bus station to be transported to Aguas Claientes.
The next morning, we woke up early and hopped on the same bus to be taken back to Machu Picchu. We had reserved tickets to climb Huayna Picchu, which we were feeling a bit nervous about, but I am so glad we did it. Honestly, the view at the top was worth every single stair to get up there. There were so many beautiful orchids, butterflies, and birds that provided great incentive (an excuse) to take rests on the way up. A true highlight of the experience! We still had plenty of time in Machu Picchu itself to see all of the temples and walk through the ruins. When our time was up, we said goodbye and hopped on the panoramic train in Aguas Calientes to return to Cusco in time for dinner and an early night of sleep.
This experience provided me with two of the best days of my life, and I could not recommend it more highly. A huge part of our experience was sharing it with Vincent, and I would absolutely recommend traveling with him if you can. We’re already planning on coming back to do the 4-day trail with him in the future! Until then, my husband and I will cherish the memories made on this unforgettable trip.

My fiancé and I did a 4 day/3 night hike in the Ausangate Mountain with Rainbow Mountain and Machu Picchu on the last 2 days. It was AMAZING. Seriously such… read more a beautiful country. Our tour guide, Nilo, was incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating. He spoke great English and was really fun to hang out with 4 days. The tour also included 2 chefs and a porter. Our chefs Valvino and Luis Miguel were unreal. They made 5 course meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner out of a tent. Everything we had was SO good. And they woke us up every morning with hot tea and hot water to wash our faces. Our porter, Martin was so sweet. He set up our tent at every rest stop so we could rest in it and had camp set up and taken down so fast every day.
The entire crew was so hard working and nice and accommodating. I highly recommend Trexperience for any tour you’re thinking of booking and I highly recommend going to Peru for your next trip. It’s an absolutely beautiful country and they welcome tourism.
Amazing trail with amazing views! Our private guide Jose Luis made those 2 days such a fun and great experience. The best guide we ever had!
Can’t recommend this company enough. Our guides, Robby and Sol, were very knowledgeable and taught us all so much about the Inca history and culture along our hike.

Best experience ever!

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.

I promise you will not regret booking a trip with TreXperience!!

The porters were the hardest working people I’ve ever seen and our chef Rolando made us some of the best food we’ve ever had. He even made me a special cake for my birthday. We can’t say enough good things about our experience with TreXperience and highly recommend this company to anyone considering doing tours of Peru.

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.
We had an excellent experience with trexperience on the Inca trail to Machu Picchu. We had Charlie and Sara as guides and they were amazing. Charlie has an incredible knowledge… read more of both history and the nature, which he shared with the whole group on the way. Furthermore we had amazing food along the way!

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.
Had the most amazing time. Not only we’re the trek’s views amazing but the guides themselves were great. I was very sad to leave the trip. It was such a… read more great experience and would definitely recommend!

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 .
I have spent an absolutely amazing (and exhausting) 4 days hiking the Inca Trail with Trexperience. I travelled with friends to Peru so that we could complete this challenge together… read more and the experience did not disappoint. 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. This is the first time I have attempted something like this, and I would 100% recommend Trexperience to anyone wanting to expand their horizons and see more of the world’s rich history.

Edwin was a great guide. Super friendly and helpful. Great accomadation and activities all very well organised. Thank you so much!
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!
We just completed the Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu/Aguas Calientes and have only positive things to say about TreXperience and the team who looked after us! Every detail was well… read more thought out with little surprises along the way beyond what was listed as ‘included’ in the tour – which I won’t ruin in a review!
The food/catering is absolutely delicious and it’s incredibly impressive what our team Amilca, Cecilio and Elmer put together on the side of a mountain. Thank you all!! The meals really were a highlight. The team look after the majority of your equipment – ours was quickly transported from campsite to campsite by the team of horses and our capable horseman, Wilbur.
Group sizes are kept small (smaller than many other operators) so we all got to hike at a pace we were happy with. Our group was 5pax and quickly became "familia" on the trip!
Lastly a special mention to our guide, Adolfo who was brilliant throughout. He kept motivation high and provided lots of information throughout, drawing on his 15 years of experience to teach us about the inca civilisation, as well as wildlife (flora & fauna) through the trek. Gracias Adolfo.
Despite having a cloudy day at Machu Picchu with poor visibility and no ‘vista’, we all reminisced on the panoramic train back towards Cusco that the journey with TreXperience really did outweigh the destination (Machu Picchu) for us. 100% recommend.
I would like to give a big thank you to Jose Calderon, Lordes Soto and Rosa Hvillca , who went out of their way to be with us every step… read more of the way . They were very engaging and we loved their attitude. We were given exceptional service and loved the camp atmosphere they created with the porters . We will miss them so much and have created a family within them . They are the best team I have ever met.
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.
