We had the most amazing time with the best tour guide, Charly. Charly is a man of multiple trades – he is so knowledgable about the history and culture of… read more the Inca Trail. We also found out that he is also a great photographer and a published author.
Although the Inca Trail is challenging, Charly was patient with each climber who climbed at different speed.
In addition, he introduced us to the Peruvian culture such as explaining us about the drinks that the porters were drinking.
We also had the best cook, Carmelo. He was amazing with his skills and creative with his dishes. I was always impressed by the meals.
Then, there were the impressively strong porters who were so friendly and welcoming.
It is so amazing to hear the great things that this tour company does for the porters like insurance and being the one of the first companies to employ women.
I honestly believed that we picked the best tour company. Go with a local company like this one!
I did the two day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu excursion with Robinzon as our guide. I am 43 and in good shape (HIIT workouts 2-3 times per week… read more and typically a 5K run each week). The trail wasn’t too bad, although parts could be challenging. I completed the trip in tennis shoes.
Robinzon was AMAZING!! He went at our pace (my 67 yo mother was with us) and was very patient. He was also very knowledgeable about history, flora, and fauna. Robinzon made sure we knew what was going on for each part of our trip and that we were taken care of- even checking in on mom the day after our trip! He took great pictures of us to document our experience. I wouldn’t have wanted any other guide- Robinzon was great!!
We did the 4 day classic Inca trail private tour with our guide Maritza and she was so wonderful. She was extremely knowledgeable, her English was fantastic, and we learned… read more so much from her. We cried happy tears at the top of Sun Gate, it was so special to have her as our guide. 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.
A unforgettable trip and would 100% recommend – once in a lifetime. Four days of hiking with stunning scenery and fascinating history explained by excellent tour guides with knowledge… read more and seemingly endless energy and passion. What’s more, the camping was made better by some delicious meals cooked by great chefs – where all the tents, equipment and food were carried up by porters.
Our hosts Vannia and Jonah were incredible. They both were extremely knowledgeable and passionate about their work. The food was definitely the highlight of this tour. Very well prepared and… read more of high quality. The porters were amazing, always there to assist and help. I recommend this trip as a must, it’s one you should not miss out on experiencing. Thank you To all the team involved, till next time.
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.
Stop and look no further. This is 10000% the tour you need to book! After loads of research and having an amazing 12/10 experience, this is the tour to take.… read more You wouldn’t believe the attention to detail to every little thing from logistics, food, camping and everything in between, these guys have it taken care of! I’m a seasoned hiker and they take care of all of the mundane details so that you can fully enjoy the hike. Mickey and his team are unbeatable!
Would highly recommend Trexperience for the 4 day Classic Inca trail and we all had a great time and was well organised.
Our guide Robinzon was great and friendly… read more and allowed all people on our group to trek at their own pace on all four days which was great.
The food provided on all four days was the best food I have had while at cusco and is something you definitely will look forward to on all four days.
If you’re thinking of treking the Inca trail, you wouldn’t be left disappointed if you go with trexperience like all 8 of us in our group
Our guides Pepe and Filio were very knowledgeable and provided everything we needed to have a great 4 days. The food was also great, kudos to chef Senche. Very accommodating… read more to different diets as well.
The entire trip was amazing! Our guide Jose Calderon was a very caring and humorous person with ample experience in guiding tours like this. 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!
This has been one of the most amazing experiences me and my husband ever had. Elisban, Melky and the entire crew of chefs and porters took care of every… read more single detail so we were able to hike and enjoy every step of the Inca trail.
Food was exceptional. The chef Francisco prepared meals that introduced us to Peruvian cuisine. The table was set up nice and colorful with beautiful flowers that allowed us to relax after a long walking day.
The campsite was already set by the time we arrived. Warm water to wash your face, warm towels and cool (purified) water on the hot afternoons.
Every morning we were woken up with the musical voice of Melky. It was refreshing to see his smile and saying "good morning, good morning. Coca tea or coffee"
We learned history and customs of the locals. Elisban took his great knowledge and patience to share all this information.
The mystic views, the hard climbing and the camaraderie of the rest of the hikers made this trip so special. At the end of the trip all of us were family. Hugs and tears were the common affection when we conquered the Machu Picchu.
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
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
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!
Great experience , Awesome team , Learn a lot about the history on the way to Machu Picchu , delicious food much more than I expected, hard-working team , Highly… read more recommended you will not be disappointed !

And… read more this is in addition to being on an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime experience. And did I mention the food? Holy smokes! Better than any food I had in Lima or Cusco (or in most places, really). I could not recommend this trip more—start to finish (even with some pretty intense, high altitude hiking) WORTH EVERY PENNY.
Highly recommended! Had an amazing time thanks especially to our guide Carlos Ccolcca who was very knowledgeable and friendly and our chef Julio Cesar who cooked us amazing 5 course… read more meals every night including a birthday cake on my birthday. Can’t wait to come again!
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

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
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.
Edy was an amazing guide. He had so much passion when explaining the Inca trail and all the artefacts. Massively made our hike a great experience!
Roland (head cook) who… read more was cooking for us was very talented, cooking extravagant meals and creating sculptures of art with food. Amazing experience, much recommended!
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!

We would recommend a trip with Trexperience because they gave us plenty of information beforehand, and the entire trip went smoothly and exceeded our expectations.
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.
We had an extremely good experience with our group of 8 people on the 4D Inca trail. Our guides Robinzon and Walter were social, experienced and capable to help us… read more and push forward (even during hard times, because we suffered from stomach issues).
Guide Robinzon emphasized to enjoy, look around and dont Worry about the time of arrival. He really won our trust. Sometimes we needed a bit more detail at the final day at Machu Picchu.
Guide Walter restarted to hike as a guide with our English group, and we think het also had good talent +is a nice, modest guy.
Don’t hesitate to book with Trexperience; a smaller organization run by local people.
This Salkantay Trek was absolutely amazing!! Our Guide Carlos Colca was the best guide I have ever had!! He taught us all about the Inca history and interesting facts on… read more each day of every hike. Most importantly he always made sure we were all comfortable, happy, and provided an experience better than I could have imagined. Thank you Carlos for some of the best 5 days of my life!
Seriously this trek was challenging, but Trexperience had everything planned out perfect. Even down to the little details such as luggage storage or pick up, they have everything organized so you can have 5 days of no prob-llama’s.
Our chefs and porters worked so hard and made the trek so much easier for us. Thank you to our chefs Celso and Abel for the incredible food each and everyday! Every meal was fantastic!! It’s amazing what they can cook in the mountains.
I signed up for this trek with my girlfriend and there were and we started with four other strangers. Carlos turned us into family and I hope to stay connected with these new friends in the future.
Book the trek already, you won’t regret it.
The Inca Trail was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. Expensive but worth every penny. They did everything in their power to make our experience the best… read more it could have been. The food was amazing, and there was a lot! We woke up with a coca tea every morning, a huge varied breakfast, beautiful lunch later on, “happy hour” with lots of snacks and hot drinks followed by buffet dinner with delicious local dishes and nutritious food. There were plenty delicious vegetarian options. On our treks, the views were breathtaking. The trekking was at points challenging on the second day but accessible to all levels and very rewarding. The tour guides were very supportive and always making sure everyone was doing well. Eddy and Juan had a lot of knowledge about the Incas and beautiful stories to tell us about their culture. They were clearly very passionate and love their job. I would recommend this experience to anyone who is lucky enough to do it!
We had the best time during the short Inca trail hike! Our guide Jose Luis was knowledgeable, very enthousiastic and kind. We were briefed extensively a day before the trek,… read more so we felt really prepared. The group wasn’t too big, only 7 people in total, which was nice. The hotel we stayed at was really nice and clean as well. It was truly an experience of a lifetime!

We had a fantastic 4 day hiking tour to Machu Picchu on the Luxury Private tour. The hikes are challenging and so beautiful. (Some on the internet made it sound… read more nearly impossible which it was not) We hiked about 10 km every day and reached camp by the afternoon and could rest for the next day. Edy, our guide, coordinated the 18 porters and the cooks to make our trip extraordinary. Edy like the porters is Quetchua, the descendents of the Inca. He taught us a lot about the culture, history, and mystical stories. He made us realize that the Inca trail is so special because it runs through the sacred valley bounded by the sacred mountains and river. The stunning views and learning about the Incas and the Quechua made the hike seem other worldly. The service was extraordinary by Trexperience. Our porters not only carried our things but also decorated our tents with pillows and dolls. The luxury tour provides a hot shower each night and massage. Vanessa gave us first class massages after the hike. Valentine, the head chef, made us beautiful, tasty meals and the food is served on real plates and utensils. I am also pleased to support Trexperience which is owned by two Quechuan brothers. The Inca trail provides great economic support to the Quechua and they are very happy to share this sacred valley with the hikers. We highly recommend booking your trip through Trexperience.
Fantastic Guides Carlos and Joao expertly led our group on a challenging but beautiful and informative trek. They made sure everyone was safe and having fun the whole time. Food… read more by chef Julio Cesar was fantastic as was the service by our amazing set of attentive porters. Highly recommended!
