An amazing experience, with two social and knowledgeable guides, William and Jonner! They explained everything about the Inca culture.
The food was great as well, thanks to chef Julio Cesar!… read more He managed to prepare different dishes at every meal and there always was plenty of food available. He used a lot of vegetables, so it was nutricious as well. The hike was splendid, definitely would do it again if I could.
We had an outstanding experience on the 5-day Lares to Short Inca trail with Juvenal as our guide, Lorenzo as our chef, Joao as assistant chef, and Toribio as our… read more porter. We were a small group (3) and the entire crew took incredible care of us to share the magical culture and scenery in the Sacred Valley. Please see the end of the review for a note on preparing for the altitude and general hike difficulty.
First and foremost, we thank our amazing guide, Juvenal, for bringing his in-depth knowledge for and love of the culture and people in the highlands of Lares. By communicating with local people (in Quechua), Juvenal was able to deliver an unparalleled experience of the incredible lifestyle, culture, and practices of the native people here. We were extremely moved and honored to share beautiful moments with the wonderful people of the highlands.
Juvenal also shared in-depth knowledge of the Inca and pre-Inca civilizations throughout the trek, and especially on the way to the stunningly beautiful and jaw-dropping ruins at Machu Picchu. The short Inca trail was an excellent way to reach Machu Picchu through the Sun gate (stunning view from here) in a single day’s hike.
We are so grateful for all of Juvenal’s knowledge and warm spirit. He makes a point to treat all people (not just us, but local people, the rest of the crew etc.) with kindness and respect. We couldn’t ask for a better guide for our experience. Thank you Juvenal!
Our head chef, Lorenzo, and his assistant Joao were absolutely incredible as well. Lorenzo blew our minds with how delicious (and even aesthetically pleasing) he could prepare meals while camping at 13,000 feet. My partner is vegetarian and he prepared an elaborate collection of nutritious and tailored meals for her along the way. He even prepared special meals when we both were struggling a bit with the altitude. Thank you Lorenzo and Joao!
Finally, our porter, Toribio, never ceased to impress with how quickly and safely he transported the our and the crew’s gear with his team of mules. It is astonishing how well he and his mules move through such a difficult landscape. Thank you Toribio!
We could never have anticipated how incredible and enriching this experience would be for all three of us. Not only did we see some the most incredible views of our lives, but we also learned and experienced an extremely rare and beautiful way of life that the native people of the highlands carry on. Their strength and kindness will stay with us for our entire lives.
A quick note on the demands of the trek itself. The three of us (ages 29-32, active and relatively experienced hikers) found the Lares portion very challenging due to it being at an altitude that none of us had hiked in before. We also made the mistake of not giving ourselves ample time to acclimate to the altitude in Cusco before starting the trek (and also tried to do it without altitude medication etc.). The coca tea/leaves helped to an extent but we absolutely recommend taking time (2-3 days) to acclimate in Cusco and taking altitude medication if you (like us) are not used to hiking at altitude. That way, nothing (besides the usual challenges of a difficult hike) gets in the way of your experience.
Even besides the altitude, this is a very challenging trek, so make sure you are comfortable with steep inclines/declines and heights in general before hiking the Andes. If you are up for the challenge, it is absolutely incredible!
Thank you Juvenal, Lorenzo, Joao, Toribio, and all of the beautiful people we met along the way for an unforgettable experience!!
It was a nice experience. It was a combination of sweat and tears. After all it was nice. The food was very good and beautiful places of basecamps. There… read more were beautiful views. There was enough time for pleasure and taking photos for memories.
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.
I had a wonderful time exploring the sacred valley and all the Inca wonders that laid within it. Our tour guide Johnny was an excellent communicator and knew all of… read more his stuff, and was kind enough to take pictures of us anytime we asked. Our driver Elvis was always there to pick us up wherever he dropped us off, and was a very good driver. Highly recommend!
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
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!
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!
I had the best trek ever! Carlos Ccolcca (our guide) and the head chef ( Rolando) were so amazing! We couldn’t have done it without them! Carlos was very knowledgeable… read more and took very good care of us. They cooks made phenomenal food! I was never disappointed with it. They even made the food look artistic! We saw a lot of different views of nature, from the icy mountains, to desert, to jungle. And to top it off at the end, Carlos was our guide at Machu Picchu as well. If I could give more than 5 stars I totally would!
We were briefed before our inca trail hike. It was very useful, as they explained what the 2 days were going to look like. The hike was not difficult at… read more all. During the hike we took multiple breaks, so this also helped. Our tour guide (Jose Luis) was very knowledgeable and spoke english well. All in all a great experience
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
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!
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 :) !
I tend not to leave reviews but this experience warrants one. It was an amazing experience and can’t recommend it enough!! Each campsite was beautiful with great views and I… read more travelled in a group of 6 so it was possible to get to know everyone well and made the experience even more special.
Carlos Colca our guide looked after us, encouraging us and making sure we got to each campsite safely with information about the places we trekked through. On the day we went up to Mschu Picchu he was organised and quick and we were the first group to get into the site. He was knowledgeable about history of the site and was able to answer all our questions.
Our chef Celso and sous chef Abel, consistently provided us with delicious meals throughout the trek with plenty of traditional Peruvian dishes. They also provided us with daily snacks which kept us going until our next meal.
Throughout this whole experience the attention to detail and thoughtfulness was apparent. From hot water bottles provided on the first night where the temperatures dropped during the night, to storage facilities for our duffel bags on the last day allowing us to explore Aguas Calientes unencumbered before heading back to Cusco.
I genuinely can’t recommend this company and this trek enough!! You will not be disappointed and it will be an unforgettable experience!!
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 group of five took the 5 day Trexperience Salkantay Trek and it was really fantastic. We can only recommend it to anyone thinking of taking on the challenge (it… read more wasn’t actually as hard as we thought it would be but we are quite a fit group!). Our guide Adolfo had lots of great history and stories to tell, which were usually accompanied by ridiculously good food cooked by Amilcar and his team. Seriously, we ate better than we did in Cusco most nights!
The camping equipment was all of a very good standard, and the added touch of a hot water bottle on night one which was the coldest (-5C degrees) was hugely appreciated by all. In addition, the logistics of our trip w ere incredibly well organised thanks to Amilcar, Elmer, Wilburgh and Cecilio, meaning that nothing was amiss and we did everything in good time.
We were very unlucky with our weather on Day 5, and unfortunately the clouds never parted for us to get a full view of Machu Picchu, which Adolfo told us had never happened in his 15 years of experience (cries inside). Nonetheless, he was very cheerful and told us all the history very enthusiastically to still make it a memorable experience.
If we trek in Cusco again, I think Trexperience would certainly be our choice and our group would all highly recommend to others.
Thanks Adolfo and team!
We had a wonderful time on the 4 day machu picchu trek – it was hard work but so rewarding. Arriving to the sun gate and seeing the sun come… read more up over machu picchu was magical and an experience I’ll never forget.

It was wonderful to arrive at the campsites with the tents erected, hot water waiting for us and a round of applause from the incredible porters. The food was very good and plentiful – complements to the great chef Senshe.
Most amazing thing I’ve ever done, hands down. The things you see are breathtaking the mountains, stars, glacier, animals and authentic Peruvian life. Our tour guide Bernabe was incredible –… read more he was super informative, positive all the time, made us laugh and kept us going. The food was another highlight, the talented chefs Timo, Felix and Juan provided us with endless meals and snacks prepared fresh which is some of the best food I’ve ever eaten! The team cater to your every need with beautiful extra touches such as hot water bottles for bed and explaining the stars. I cannot believe how much we have squeezed into 4 days it’s awesome. I could not recommend this highly enough for anyone wanting to stretch themselves all while seeing incredibly beautiful sights. I never expected this to be so much fun, and while it is hard work it’s not gruelling at all and has left me with a sense of pride that will last a lifetime. Thank you Bernabe and the rest of the Trexperience team for a unique experience I will never forget!!

They were… read more patient with varying trekking abilities within our group. The kindness and hospitality of the entire team was extraordinary.

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!
We did the city tour and Sacred Valley Tour with Christian and Elvis who were fantastic. I would highly recommend a tour with them.

Amazing experience, great service and best company you could chose.
Those guys took very much care about their customers. We were a group of 8 people who absolutely fitted… read more to one another. TravleXperienxe provided Porters who carried 7 kg of your stuff and those guys did an amazing job. As well as a great cook, Sous-chef and waiter ( the lovely Juvenal, who had his first table with us) who cooked great food and took good care about us. We received warm water every morning to wash ourselves and had a cup of coca tea. As a single traveler I had the chance to sleep in a single Teint (this you have to ask for explicitly). The guides were also awesome. Very funny and provided good information about the trip. Robinzon was our main guide. He is funny and empathetic and helped those who needed more help. Walter the second guide did. also a great job and took care of one of our group who had knee issues and needed much more time to walk.
I have to say, that it was the best trip I made in Peru and it is absolut worth the price. For those who are ich differing doing the Inka Trail, please be aware that you have to be fit. It is no walk in the park and especially Day 2 is physically hard. Even though the guises take care of you and provide you medicine if you have problems with the altitude etc. it is hard. If you feel fit enough definitely do it because it is the best experience you could get. In a nutshell I highly recommend this company.
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.

I would highly recommend booking through TreXperience for any treks you’re looking to do while in Cusco!

The food was also amazing, the… read more cooks followed the group everywhere and always prepare perfect food considering everyone’s preference (like vegetarian/vegan). Super nice experience!

We spent the last 3 days trekking the Inca trail and finished at Machu Picchu today with TreXperience and had the best time. Our guide Robbie and the entire crew… read more of porters and cooks took great care of us and made sure we all started and finished together. We were woken up with hot coca tea delivered to our tents every morning and well fed with some of the most amazing hot meals and multi course lunches and dinners. Robbie made sure we got up early to beat the crowds so we could have the Inca sites to ourselves to enjoy in a relaxing manner and get great photos. This company goes above and beyond and the main reason id recommend them is how well they treat their employees. They all work so hard and they voiced to be happy working for this company. It always feels nice supporting a business that takes care of their own.
We had a fantastic time hiking the Inca Trail with Trexperience – genuinely cannot fault the tour, the food (which was incredible, some of the best we had in peru… read more and great for vegetarians) and our knowledgeable and lovely tour guides, Vianna and Johan. The organisation of the trip was 10/10 and we felt so lucky to experience it with such a great tour group. If you’re looking for an ethical tour company that treats its staff (including porters and chefs) well, then look no further and book with Trexperience! I was moved to hear the stories of each member of staff and it was great to be introduced to them all on day 3 of the hike.
The only thing which i think could be improved is the clarity around how much to tip before attending – the recommended tip overall worked out around £150 per person which we hadn’t understood and therefore hadn’t brought with us beforehand, so we then went to a cash point. Of course its entirely discretionary whether and how much to tip, however more clarity before the trek would have been really appreciated so we didn’t turn up shortchanged.
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.
