We had the most incredible time hiking with Trexperience, I cannot recommend this tour enough! Our guide Pepe had so much knowledge, was so friendly and created a really great… read more atmosphere! He took lots of pictures for us and was happy to go slowly for the hiking portion of the trip to accommodate our fitness levels! The hotel we stayed in overnight was really clean and picturesque views with a great breakfast! One of the best trips I have ever done, thank you!
Edwin was a great guide. Super friendly and helpful. Great accomadation and activities all very well organised. Thank you so much!
I was originally due to do the Lares trek, but after it unfortunately had to be cancelled, Trexperience were very accommodating in switching me to the Salkantay trek at no… read more extra cost. I had my reservations about the physical demands of the trek (I have asthma and my physical fitness is not amazing) but was supported by the group and Trexperience team to complete it. For example, I was able to ride the emergency horse the last 20 minutes or so to the highest point when I was struggling with the altitude, and at other times was encouraged by my fellow trekkers and tour guide.
Our tour guide Mickey (Miguel) was fantastic and cheerful, often cracking jokes and sharing facts about the local flora. He was very patient and encouraging as I struggled physically with some parts of the trek, and never rushed me. He was also very passionate and knowledgeable about the Salkantay trail and Machu Pichu itself.
The views you see along the way are breathtaking, and the food is unbelievable. Our chefs Ronaldo, René and Oscar created the most delicious, wholesome and creative meals even at the most remote locations. They even made an impromptu birthday cake for my friend/ fellow trekker!
The horse boys Simon and Nelson, along with the rest of the staff, did a fantastic job at taking care of our belongings and preparing the campsites. The tents were roomy and comfortable, and we were provided with hot water bottles every night. An absolute highlight of the whole experience was definitely the beautiful clear night skies!
Overall, I couldn’t recommend the Salkantay trek and Trexperience enough – it was so incredible and well-organised, and the group felt like family.
The trip was amazing! Anything- from the organization and transportation, through the DELICIOUS food to the guidance through the sites was impeccable. Way exceeding expectations! Edy poured his heart into… read more giving us a glimpse of the Inca culture and we could all feel that special energy. Totally recommend! ️
Our trip was absolutely amazing! Vicente was the best guide we have ever had on a tour. We brought our 8yr old on the trek, and a day… read more later, he also misses Vicente. He was equal parts fun and easy going as he was organized and professional. The entire group was truly fantastic. Jorge, Demetrio, and Julien were brilliant with meals. It was really restaurant quality food in the middle of a mountain. Everything was made fresh and traditionally. Thank you so much to Vicente, Jorge, Demetrio, and Julien for making every single moment of this trip memorable.
This trip was one of my best experiences. Spectacular sceneries and beautiful Inca sites on the way. Trexperience team was awesome. Our tour guid, Robinzon, was very knowledgeable about the… read more Inca’s history and the nature and gave us a lot of cool tips along the way. He had a really good sense of humor as well.
My friend and I have chronic knee pain so we walked slowly and were always behind the rest of the group. Robinzon was very patient, always walking behind us, assuring us to go with our own pace, always saying "step by step, go with your own pace and enjoy the hike!" :)
Our chef, Julio Cesar was amazing. I don’t even know how he could manage preparing and cooking 2-3 different types of food so quickly. Both the taste and the presentation of the meals were great.
Every step of the way was scheduled nicely and went on plan. I would highly recommend Trexperience.
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!

The food that the chef prepared with the team was delicious and satisfied all special requests.

What an exciting 4 days! Russell and Rosa were excellent and patient guides who were knowledgeable and fun the whole time! Huge shoutout to Chef Julio Cesar for the truly… read more amazing food (seriously it was like four course meals every time). Highly recommend!
Exceeding expectations all around. As a solo traveller I always felt welcome and well taken care of. The meals were both varied, typical and tasty. Our guides, Charlie and Sara,… read more were very nice and professional. Never once felt lost or left behind. Our group was young and could hold their own in hiking and joking around.
Great hiking experience. Pepe was great! Very knowledgeable, made this hike very entertaining and enjoyable. The views were amazing, and of course, at the end of the hike the breathtaking… read more views of Machu Pichu were unbeatable.
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!
Best experience ever!
We had the best experience through the Inca Trail for four days with an amazing team.
JJ and Juan were amazing tour guides, very knowledgeable and… read more friendly.
They shared all the information they knew about this amazing culture and the Inca history, while providing us with the best comfort along with the outstanding and very hardworking porters.
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.
We didn’t expect that the experience would be so good. Our guides JJ and Yoner really made our trip to Machu Picchu special. But what amazed us the most was… read more the food. For example we got cake the last day made in a pan on simple cooking gear. Although the trip was challenging (soo many stairs going up and down..) the total experience was great and I would definitely recommend!
This was an amazing trip that was incredibly well run and thoughtfully arranged! Everything dramatically exceeded expectations, particularly the Trexperience team. 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. The chefs Celso and Abel worked nonstop preparing incredible three course meals in tents at 13k feet. Could not be happier or more impressed with how everything went. No prob-llamas.
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.
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. The guides jose luis and filio were fantastic, knowledgable and were incredibly supportive during the hike. 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.
The whole Trexexperience was amazing. From hiking to camping overnight with this group, this was the only way to do it. Our guide, Miguel, was fantastic. He was… read more fun, interesting, helpful, and went over the top to make the trip the best. The porters had everything set up for us before we needed it, including all of our overnight camping gear. Our chef, Celso, was also amazing. The food was just delicious, and, as a surprise, he baked me a birthday cake! It was the best and only was too do Machu Picchu.
We had an amazing trip, having both the amdes and then seeing Machu Picchu was mind blowing and a lifetime experience. The crew and the kitchen was perfect and super… read more friendly. Our guide Miguel was aswell very good, friendly and knew a lot about what we were having a look at. Specially showing us his house at a lunch or his neighbor señora carmen doing chicha, were very nice experiences.
Little minus, sometimes he tried to do it too well and it got stressfull (example: one morning we had a train to catch, first he made us run to the train station, then we needed to buy something to protect the sticks even though we rented them from trexperience and in the end we were waiting more then 10 minutes inside the train because we were too early). Also forcing us to fill out this recommendation at least 3 times made an unnecessary pressure.
Amazing tour! Our guide Jose Luis was very knowledgeable and provided amazing insights into the Inca culture throughout the trip. The hotel and the included dinner were decent, but nothing… read more special. Overall, a very recommendable tour that you will surely enjoy just as much as we did. We were also very lucky to be with a nice a friendly group of young people.
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 recently took part in the Salkantay Trek and loved every minute. Our guide Manolo was a constant source of positive energy from dawn til dusk (or after dusk)! He… read more told us stories of the Incas, of the stars and of the different Quechua communities and kept us entertained when the going (altitude) got tough. Melchor served up excellent food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and somehow managed to bake a pie and a cake after a long day of trekking. Pedro and Juan were excellent su chefs and porters, waking us up with hot coca tea in the mornings and ensuring we had warm water to wash our hands and faces with after a long day of hiking, and even bringing us hot water bottles to keep us warm on the first and second night.
Communication from Trexperience in the run up to the trek was fantastic. The whole trek was organised really well, from collection from our hostel on the first day to drop off on the last day (including collecting our luggage from the office and then the onward travel from the office back to our hostel). Everything ran smoothly without the slightest glitch. Would highly recommend!
This was simply an amazing experience. Our tour guides were fantastic. Edy is so knowledgeable and passionate about the history and culture of the Inca society, you can’t help but… read more be excited about it. Yoner’s happy disposition kept spirits up even during the most challenging sections. I learned more on this trek than I ever expected to. Rolando, the head chef on our tour, made delicious food every time, and made not one but two cakes (one was vegan) to celebrate the birthday of one member of our group. Everyone, from the porters, to the waiter (Jesus), to the chef, to our tour guides, made this a wonderful experience I will never forget.
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! ;)
This was a great experience! I would recommend it to all! The inca trail was beautiful and our tour guide, Pepe, was wonderful! He gave us great information about incase… read more and their history, as well as the inca trails. The first day was a beautiful hike, which was challenging enough! The second day was all about Machu Picchu. We spent the night in a hotel, which was refreshing. I recommend this tour to anyone who is a hiker!
Wow! What an awesome experience! I had a blast! Stunning scenery, challenging yet rewarding hiking, sensational food and hospitality and experienced knowledgeable guides.
Our guide, Carlos the mountain lion… read more is very knowledgeable and experienced and helped get the most out of the trek.
The hospitality shown by the hard working porters and chefs, Rollando, Javier, Martine, Alex and the rest of the team was second to none.
To get the most out of this it helps to be in shape as TreXperience explains at the outset. A truly outstanding experience i have no hesitation recommending to others.
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.
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!
The Classic Salkantay trek introduces not only the eyes but the soul to many different beautiful natural sights throughout Peru, all leaving you breathless (literally). It was my first trekking… read more experience, and it wouldn’t have gone as well if it wasn’t for our guide Nilo. Not only was Nilo an excellent guide, who was well versed in the knowledge surrounding the region and history, but he was also a great leader who would always go out of his way to make sure everyone was safe. He would stay with the last person in the group, making them not feel like a burden and helping with all of our needs along the trek. We were always met with great nutritious meals delivered by our chef Vacilio and sous chef Eusebio, which would enable us to travel great distances. Lastly, our personal belongings would always greet us at our campsites or before meals due to the extraordinary diligence of our horseman Frank. I had a wonderful time and cannot wait to go on more trekking experiences.
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
Best guide we could’ve asked for. Super knowledgeable and always concerned for our well being. Wouldn’t go with anyone else
This tour will be the best thing you ever do!
4 days of beautiful scenery and amazing hosts. The tour guide Bernabe made the trip so special, was super friendly… read more and had lots of amazing information to share.

I highly recommend this experience with Trexperience and our guide, Monica! We enjoyed part of the Inca Trail the first day, finishing at Machu Pichu. The entire… read more adventure was beautiful, our guide was knowledgeable and most importantly, when my daughter got sick, our guide and the staff of TreXperience were amazing to organize a doctor and help with translation and arrangements. Monica even came to our hotel in Cusco following the trip to check and in and help me with a visit to the local Pharmacist. Thank you Monica, my new friend forever !!! Aside from the sickness, she was super knowledgeable and fun along our journey. She absolutely went the extra mile to make us feel comfortable! Thank you!!
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.

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.
