Eddie and Soldad was incredible. Super good food. Reccomend to everybody. Very coltural as well. Kind people!
Awesome tour with Franklin. He was on time for every part and never rushed us. Also he is an amazing Photographer and knew every great spot for pictures. I highly… read more recommend this company and especially Franklin.
To begin with, however hard you think this might be, double it. This was the most difficult thing I think I’ve done in my life, although in my 50s my… read more knees probably would have fared better had I tried this 20 or 30 years ago.
Were it not for my faithful spouse and the never ending smiles in support by our Trexperience guides, William & Jonas, I might have given up on day two. They were always happy, always accommodating, while also making sure we continued to learn about the incredible Incan history. William’s love for his country and its history embodies all that he does on the trail. The food was unbelievable and I still can’t wrap my mind around how the cook was able to put together such tasty, filling food but also such a beautiful presentation for each meal. William & Jonas are pure souls & I’m better for having witnessed their patience & kindness.
The only real comforts on the trail were those amazing meals and the warm sleeping bag (although make sure to bring plenty of layers because there will at least be a few nights where you’re gonna need them in addition to the great sleeping bag; I also recommend paying extra for the small blow up pad). Oh, one more thing, the porters laid out hot bowls of water at the end of each hike so we could wash our hands in warm water. My husband and I used ours to take good, old-fashioned spit baths inside the tent because by evening it is always very cold and a little bit of hot water was nice. It’s the small things!
You won’t take a real shower for four full days unless you can stand the two places where there is an ice cold option; bathrooms are all along the trail but most don’t have toilet paper, almost none have a seat (ladies), & on the last part of the trail the toilets are in the ground. It was hell trying to squat after the previous days hikes & my legs weren’t happy.
Speaking of porters, my mind was blown. I couldn’t help but worry about the condition of their backs and knees as they age but so many of them have been doing this for years. Apparently the pay is good because their meals are included and they never seem to complain. After we were tucked in our tents at night we could hear them laughing among each other. They are a very strong, quiet crew and I was humbled and grateful each day as they passed us. The last evening they introduce themselves to us and their age is ranged from 20 to 47. We wouldn’t have been able to tell their ages. I feel very
If you’re physically able, I highly recommend this life-changing event. You will meet amazing people, you’ll see views that will leave your jaw dropping, and you will find yourself physically uncomfortable and testing yourself in ways that will build character. It’s a good soul-searching trip as well. I’m forever grateful that we made the trip and would recommend William, Jonas, and this company a million times!!
Everything was well thought of to the smallest details.
The guides were knowledgeable and from the local community of the Inca region.
I like that they have two… read more women guides to accommodate an all women group mentored by a very passionate charismatic male guide who empowered them to take the lead throughout the trail.
The porters were beyond helpful, they were pleasant and encouraging with their smiles and high spirit as they worked hard to set up the tents and attend to all our needs, a group of 9 women.
The food is another level of camp food. We were well fed. We wouldn’t have gotten that quality of food in a standard restaurant: from The variety to quantity of food and the presentation. I could go on and on. In short, you can’t go wrong with food with Chef Julius Cesar and her assistants. Every day and night was a different dish. We even asked for the recipe to attempt to make it at home.
I will miss everything about this experience. Thank you Jose, Rosa, and Lordes. Truly you made a beautiful experience unforgettable.
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
Amazing amazing experience!!! We hiked with our teenage daughters. This being our first hike we were bit nervous about the enormity of project. I will not lie it was… read more hard but with the help of our guide Edy, we could not only accomplish it but had a great time as well. The way edy and his team supported us is beyond words. They took care of all our needs before we even realize it. Food was amazing, not just taste wise but also presentation. They took care of all our dietary needs as well and would work around . Our cook Ronaldo is nothing short of five star cook. You can feel his passion. All the team is super passionate about their culture and heritage and Edy kept explaining us about communities and their roles on our way to trek. He is very knowledgeable about Inca, pre Inca and other local civilizations. I can say on and on about how happy I am with my experience. Overall very nice trip.

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 .
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.

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!!

Our experience was amazing! Our guides, JJ (Juan Jose) & Judy, were experienced and knowledgeable and kept us well informed the entire trip.

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!

A magical experience with Sara, my guide, from
Trexperience! The organisation of this trip with the company was smooth and they were responsive on WhatsApp with all my questions! Sara,… read more my guide, was super informative and knowledgeable about Macchu Picchu. She answered all my questions and is passionate about the site and the area, as she is a local Andean.

Will def return to do more tours with Trexperience!
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.
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!
This trip was amazing! From the moment we started till the very end. Everything was superbly organised so we didn’t have to worry about anything and could just enjoy the… read more trek and scenery!

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

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.

Exceeded all expectations. A truly fantastic experience. We could not have asked for a better guide in Adolfo.

The porters and horseman were also exceptional. Some of the hardest workers i’ve ever seen. Highly recommend this team.
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.
Our guides were Pepe and Filio. They have done a wonderful job! They not only motivated us to hike on but also explained a lot about the culture and nature.… read more It was very interesting. Moreover they managed that we were the 1st team to arrive at Macchu Picchu!
Sinci our chef cooked over the 4 days a variety of dishes. All of them were delicious and we even got a cake as dessert for our last dinner.
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.
Great tour led by a great guide, Fernando Benavides! Fernando was always well informed, had the logistics figured out and was very accommodating throughout the entire trip.
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.
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.
My tour guide was Agustin and he was amazing! He was on time, flexible and very informative! When we got off the train, Augustin had my name written on a… read more piece of paper waving it to make sure we could see him! We arrived at around 12:20pm but we were a little hungry, so we asked him if it’s possible we could eat. He agreed and told us to enjoy 1 hour for lunch then the tour would start afterwards. The tour didn’t finish until 5pm-ish so just calculate the time he spent with us. He took his time with us and there were only two of us in our private tour. So he really went into the details. He also took amazing pictures of us!! I would definitely ask him to be my tour guide again when I come back to Peru! And yes, he got a well deserved tip! ;)
We just finished the 4D3N Inca Trek and TreXperience took the best care of us. Robbie and his team made sure the whole family finished the trek. They encouraged us… read more along the way and kept a pace that wouldn’t overexert us. He knew all the cool spots to take breaks and he made sure we started early to beat the crowds. The cooks spoiled us with the most amazing food and the porters setup our tents so they’d be ready to slumber in once we got to our sites. I recommend this company to anyone wanting to go on their next Incan adventure!
Juan Luis was great. All details were what we expected. I learned so much and the experience was once in a life time.
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!!!
The scenery was amazing and the culture knowledge offered by Eddy our tour guide was excellent. He demonstrated a deep understanding of Incan and Quechua culture.
