The food is just incredible, the Chef Raymondo served… read more up the best food I have had in Peru in copious qualities.
JJ and Juan our tour guides were superb. JJ’s knowledge and passion for the Incas was infectious. Brilliant company.
Had a brilliant time on this trip. The guides Juan Felix and Maribel were incredibly nice, fun, informative and helpful throughout.
Chef Julio Cesar worked very hard to cater… read more to a variety of dietary needs in our group and did so while serving excellent food throughout the trip.
The porter team also worked tirelessly for us.
Overall had a fantastic trip and would 100% recommend
Had an amazing time on the Inca trail! Our tour guides Felix and Maribel went above and beyond. Felix was a fountain of knowledge and had answers to every question,… read more but beyond that was fun and friendly and was always ready with a joke and a smile. Maribel was so lovely and caring and full of positive reinforcement. The food was amazing with the staff preparing special dishes for Mother’s Day and a honeymoon – thank you to Julio Cesar! All in all a great trip :)
Amazing experience, combination of hiking in amazing mountains lead by our tour guide Nilo. Getting to know a peruvian culture, which Nilo explained. Also eating superb food prepared by… read more chef Vasilio and su chef Eusebio. The food was extremely good. :) I have taken the possibility to have most of my load carried by horses which were lead by Frank. I have to recommend this tour, it’s perfect experience.
Vicente our guide was phenomenal. So knowledgeable and a genuine kind soul that was such a great guide. We brought our 8yr old along and everyone was so great with… read more him. Jorge, Demetrio and Julian were so friendly and made the trip so much better. The only thing better than the huge amount of restaurant quality food was the incredible sites and views.
A great hiking experience. Stunning views and breathtaking peaks. The hike itself is fairly challenging but doable for most people, and the trail is dotted with fascinating Inca ruins to… read more wet your appetite before Macchu Pichu. The three-course meals and varied breakfasts served every day by the traveling chef were always well received. The porters heaved tents and sleeping bags ahead to prepare the campsite for us each day.
Our tour guides Edy and Juan were very knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic and I really enjoyed their company throughout.
Overall a great experience. Just note that you will be sharing the trail with your group, other groups, and the 20+ porters for each group. it can feel a bit crowded at times.
Also, if you are from a country without a tipping culture – and especially if you’re on a tight budget – be aware that there is a strong expectation of significant tips at the end for the guides, chef and porters that accompany you along the way. They tell you it’s voluntary but it won’t feel that way.
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.
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.
Inca trail is a must do for every nature lover and trekker! The beauty of this land was stunning and incomparable!! TreXperience was very very good! They were very well… read more organized! The tents were well laid out and neat, the food prepared by Raymond and his team was unbelievable! Imagine a Restaurant style dining up in the mountains with such detail including uniformed chef and servers!! The guides Robinson and Soledad were very educated on Inca history and the land. Robinson is very funny and keeps us on track and guides us. Soledad is very compassionate and caring. i fell sick on day 2 and another member had a chronic sickness which was slowing her down. the 2 guides talked among themselves and one of the guides slowed down and walked with us through the trek, while the other handled the others! This way they ensured each and everyone was taken care of with their individual needs! Soledad was the assistant guide but based on how she handled the situation and stepped up to the task, she is ready to lead her own group as the senior guide!
Overall I strongly recommend the Classic Inca trail and treXperience!!
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.
Our guide Adolfo was a steady and awsome man who moved the gruop in steady tempo and was used as the glue in the group. The scenery is amazing and… read more the chefs are world class
We had awesome time with great food from Rolando and very knowledgeable guides Soledad and Robinson and very hard working porters lead by Toribio.
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.
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!
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!
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!!
For anyone who is looking for another option than the Inca Trail, this is a great scenic option! From time of booking through Tour Radar, TreXperience had impeccable communication and… read more provided helpful information. We met our tour guide, Filio, in Cusco the night before and honestly we had the best time with him over the 4 days. He was great, funny and knowledgeable about all things Inca. He even taught us some Quechan. We were very lucky as there was only my husband and I so it became a private tour (great price!) and Filio was very patient with our pace. He was also a great photographer. Pedro was also an amazing cook and we could not fault any of the dishes. Was delicious so definitely consider booking via TreXperience as they are also a local company at a very good price compared to other Australian companies we were looking at!
Trexperience really does tick all the boxes. JJ and Yoner were awesome guides and were flexible to the variety of paces within the group. JJ was very knowledgeable and gave… read more us an extensive history lesson throughout. The porters simply are not human, the trip would be impossible without them. What the chefs were capable of using camp kitchens still boggles the mind; so much variety and taste. They really do get the little details right, hot/cold water to wash the day off, hot coca tea before you even leave the tent, regular water where possible. Even if other providers are cheaper, go with this company!
Overall it was an incredible experience run by an A+ Company
Our guide Charly was professional and knowledgeable. Would definitely do it again and use Trexxperiemce
The experience was demanding physically but totally worth it ! fantastic nature and inca sites. Herbert and Soledad were very good guides attentive and kind and gave us a lot… read more of information about Inca culture.
The whole trip was very well organised and the food was incredible.
Thank you for making this journey enjoyable.
Great landscapes, great guides, lot of knowledge and history. This is an must have in any Peru trip.
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.
It was an amazing trek! Everything was well organized and we had two excellent guides: Juan Felix and Maribel. They made the trek an exciting, informative and fun experience. Also… read more the chef Julio Cesar was great! Best food I have ever eaten in Peru – prepared in the Andes in the middle of the nature.
We started the 4-day Inca Trail with a lot of confidence due to our guides, Ray and Juan. This was our first time to do a multiple day hike and… read more we enjoyed it so much. The landscapes where beautiful and the tour on it self was organised really well. There was always a guide in front of the group and always a guide at the end. They supported us really well during the hike. Besides the amazing views during the track we where surprised by the amazing food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The chefs Raymundo and the head porter Porfirio managed everything excellent. Would recommend doing this tour with TreXperience and hopefully these guys will be your guide!
We did a 4 day luxury Inca tour with Trexperience finishing at Machu Picchu. Our guide JJ, and assistant guide Filio we’re absolutely amazing!!! They made our dream come… read more true. Our head Chef, Walter cooked some of the most delicious meals we’ve ever had, much less on a mountain backpacking trip! The food was exquisite! JJ and Filio went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and all our goals were achieved, sometimes literally giving us the backpack covers off their backs! They were patient, positive, and motivating through all the challenges of this amazing trail. You absolutely must ask for JJ and Filio! They made an amazing trip absolutely outstanding. I can’t say enough good things about them or our experience with Trexperience. The Inka trail is the most beautiful and challenging trip we’ve taken to include the Everest Base Camp trail. Book your trip today with JJ and Filio, and ask for Walter as your Chef!!

Most amazing experience on the 4 day Inca trail. Eddie and Yonar were our guides and Eddie was one of the most passionate people I’ve ever met. He loves the… read more Inca trail and it’s rich history more than everything. The exact type of guide you want to learn from and keep motivated throughout. Yonar is a newer guide and learning English but absolutely loved him as well. They both kept such high energy and positive attitudes throughout! The trail itself is amazing, the views and the Inca ruins along the way make seeing Machu Picchu that much more special and meaningful. The entire team goes absolutely above and beyond to make the experience great. The whole thing is so well run and organized, from getting camp set up and broken down each day to the fantastic food that is cooked. The porters were always clapping us into camp after a day of hiking after they had been then ones doing the actual hard work. Lastly the food, wow, amazing what kinda of things they can cook up there on tiny stoves. We had a wide variety of dishes with fish, beef, chicken along with traditional Peruvian dishes and they easily accommodated for those in the group that were vegan or vegetarian. Can’t recommend this company and tour enough!!!
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 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!
Amazing experience, combining a trek in the nature and exploring the ancient city Machu Picchu. Our guide Filio was super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the Inca culture and the… read more nature around us.
My husband and I booked this tour for our honeymoon and I can honestly say it’s been one of the best experiences of our lives.
Amazing views, amazing food,… read more amazing people!
You get to journey through some beautiful landscapes – originally walked by the Incas – and see environments including grassland, cloud forest and jungle.
The group size is perfect (around 14 people) so you have time to talk to and get to know everyone.
At night you camp in the beautiful mountains and you don’t even have to put up your tents – there’s a team of amazing porters who do it all for you and your camp is ready and waiting when you arrive.
Speaking of the amazing porters, this includes a number of talented cooks who prepare you breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s a mix of both traditional Peruvian and European food and it is absolutely delicious! (My husband and I had been suffering from travellers’ tummy before the hike, but this food put us right.)
The chefs even prepared an amazing cake and marshmallow birthday surprise for one hiker in the group, and on the last night my wife and I were presented with not one, but TWO chocolate cakes to celebrate our honeymoon!! Amazing!!
What makes you feel even better is that Trexperience is an ethical company, which treats the friendly team of porters well, makes sure they are paid properly and doesn’t make them work ridiculous hours, ie four day treks back-to-back. There are some porters along the trail who look absolutely EXHAUSTED and it does feel uncomfortable. However, with Trexperience you can be confident that in this company they are treated well.
Each day begins with an early breakfast before you start your hike. Day one is pretty easy, while days two and three are more challenging – some steep up and down hills.
However, if you haven’t done a hike before please don’t worry, all you need is good stamina, a positive attitude, and the will to succeed!
You walk through some BREATHTAKING landscapes and are constantly surrounding by mountains which are beautiful come rain or shine.
There’s waterfalls, wild animals, gorgeous flowers, and historical sites along the way.
Another point; if you are struggling, you can take as much time as you want and one of the hike leaders will stay with you.
All this, and I haven’t even mentioned our super tour leaders or Machu Picchu!!!
We had two tour leaders for our trip who had bounds of energy, enthusiasm and humour.
Each day, to break up the walks, our guides Erisban and Manolo would stop us for a rest and tell us about traditional Incan beliefs and customs. It was really interesting and a great way to learn about history as Erisban and Manolo are descended from the Incas.
They are very passionate and you could tell that they loved introducing their culture to us.
They were great fun to be around, always laughing and joking with the group, while they could always put you at ease if you were worried.
Thank you Manolo and Erisban – you were super!
The fourth and final day is the the highly anticipated two hour walk and visit to Machu Picchu.
The team wakes up very early and embarks on a beautiful hike to ‘Sun Gate’ – the viewing point opposite Macchu Picchu.
Here you can celebrate the completion of your journey, take in the awe inspiring scenery and (of course!) take celebratory selfies.
A visit to the Incan super-town really is a once in a lifetime experience and leaves you in awe of what was achieved hundreds of years ago.
After your visit, you take a bus (hooray!) down from the mountains to enjoy some llama burgers (seriously!) and some shopping before taking the panoramic train back to Ollantaytambo. A beautiful way to end a superb trip.
In conclusion, this is a once in a lifetime trip that you simply must do if you are planning on visiting Machu Picchu – and there’s only one group to do it with: Trexperience!
Thank you guys for an amazing honeymoon and unforgettable memories x
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 just extraordinary! The big role here played our tour guide Carlos, who was funny, caring, very experienced, friendly, had a bunch of amazing stories for us and possessed a great knowledge of the Ketchua (Inca) people. I have learned soo much from him.
Oh and the food is divine!! We ate like kings thanks to chef Julio Cesar!
I am really Grateful for this experience and would recommend it to anyone!!!!
This was not just a four day hike. It was a total experience from learning about Incas history from our amazing tour guide Edy, to experience authentic Peruvian food in… read more the middle of mountains by chef Raymundo, to appreciate the humbleness and kindness of porters who carried all the necessary stuff for us and make us feel welcomed and appreciated. We had an unpredictable journey, with lots of unexpected things happen on our way, but Edy and Rosa handled smoothly everything. It was incredible and I would go with Trexperience again in a heartbeat. Thank you guys!
This was one of the most amazing excursions of my life! I’m a pretty experienced traveler and been on many tours, and this was something else. It was extremely well… read more organized, the porters were super heroes, and our chef Julio Cesar was a master in the kitchen! Our meals were so thoughtful and delicious. It’s amazing what he can put together in the middle of nowhere with such an amazing staff to help him. Everyone with the company was very thoughtful and helpful with anything we needed.
Our guide, Carlos Ccolcca, was the absolute best! He was so knowledgeable and personable. He really took care of us during the entire trip.
What wasn’t expected was that in our group of 7, which would be a great for intimacy and bonding, there would be a couple from the Netherlands who were VERY sick and demanded much of our guide’s time. They were unbelievably rude and selfish as to their needs when they should have ultimately decided NOT to take part in a physically demanding multiple day hike. We also had three teenagers who were not accompanied by their parent. The kids also hiked as fast as possible from point A to point B, leaving the rest of the group behind. Our guide had to stay behind with the sick people for safety reasons. The parent of said teenagers apparently decided that our guide was supposed to be their babysitter, and made it known that she felt her children should have been watched over 24-7, which in this situation with the Dutch couple, was not possible. Carlos did the absolute best he could in the situation and to make our time memorable.
Anyone who takes part in a tour knows how important the synchronicity of a group is to the overall experience, and unfortunately selfish sick people and unaccompanied children aren’t a great contribution to that. Tour gets 5 stars, but our group gets 2 stars!
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!
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.
