The best thing that has happened to me during my traveling in Peru!
The whole organization of our trip was perfect and very well done, everything is taken care… read more of so you have nothing to worry about. All the people are super nice and always wiling to help. They are making sure you are feeling satisfied and happy. Whatever you need, it is possible to arrange.
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!!!!
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.
Fantastic 4 days, our guides were knowledgable about the fauna and flora. The food was fantastic and catered for all our individual needs.
First night hot water bottles In… read more our tents, made all the difference to a chilly night. Awoken with coffee in our tent followed by a great breakfast set us up for the day.
Arriving at Machu Picchu they were knowledgeable and happy as ever to answer questions and take us through this truly breath taking place.
A special thanks goes to our lead guides Adolfo and Judy, always happy and there to help, sharing their knowledge and experience along the route.
You must request Jhony (pronounced Johnny) for the tour! We did a full tour with him in Sacred Valley and half day tour in Cousco. A joy to work with.… read more He spoke clear English and was fully knowledgeable. I appreciate humor and he had the best personality! You can’t go wrong with him as your guide!
The treck was amazing. We had two wonderful guides EDDY and YONER who were amazing. They told us a lot about the sights and the history during the treck.
… read more /> The treck was well organised. Transportation was very good.
Rolando the Chef cooked amazing and there was all way plenty. We can definitely recommend this agency for doing the inka trail!!
Very nice experience. A top team with the guide Jose Calderon and the chef Amilcar. The food was incredible good and even we have been only two people, the provided… read more us the full service. Jose Calderon made a very good tour at MachuPicchu with very detailed explanations. It was an unforgettable trip.
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
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.
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.
Amazing tour with this company and our guide Franklin. He was very knowledgeable about each location and it’s history.
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.
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.
great experience- the food was amazing and the guides were friendly and helpful. definitely worth it to see machu picchu!
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.
Great food, great people and the best organisation of all the trips we had in Peru! Definetely worth every Penny, I would do it again! :)
We hiked past beautiful… read more scenery and though it was also exhausting and cold (bring enough warm clothing), we loved it with all the great food and conversations. Our guide was great and so was the whole team (cooks and horsemen). We were woken up with hot coffee or tea, had two matresses and a hot waterbottle to keep warm during the nights.
I can’t tell any favourit part of the tour, cause it was all great :)
Thanks a lot to Trexperience!
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!
Edy & Rosa were amazing guides! Raymundo made the best local meals and Juvenal (head portor) made sure we were always taken care of from throwing out mats to nap… read more on to ensuring our tents were pitched asap. All the portors went above and beyond and genuinely cared we were as comfortable as possible. Portors would run ahead of us to make sure they got lunch or dinner ready before we arrived on site. Edy and Rosa were fun, super informative on the Inca history, showed us the coca blessing, and was very adaptive to our situation and group’s needs. This hike wasn’t just about a hike and the views. It was about the history of the Inca’s, taste Peruvian food, and to make great friends and learn about the local culture! I would definitely recommend Trexperience to anyone who is thinking about any hikes to Machu Picchu!
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!
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!
Good food made by Julio Cesar
Good hike guided by Juan Jose
Got there in time
Great service all throughout. Can be customized to make sure you make… read more it to the end haha
We had a great tour with Trexperince on the Inca trail. Tour guides (ours was Vincent) are knowledgeable about history of the area and also very helpful in ensuring tourists… read more have a fun, safe, and comfortable experience. Ample information was provided to be prepared for the trip and navigate the transportation. This was also a fun way to meet new people from all over.
We had the most incredible couple of days! Our tour guide Pepe was so knowledgeable and passionate and made sure we were comfortable and having fun the whole way up.… read more I will never forget this trip and would one hundred percent recommend to everyone!
The whole trek was made by the incredible staff, our tour guide Vincente was amazing at making everyday perfect. We had a few issues within our group with people getting… read more sick but he went out of his way to make sure we were looked after. The chef Julio went above and beyond with the food it was incredible and especially with me and my partner being vegetarian. The 2 porters Abel and Deonicio were attentive, the hard work they put in to make sure everything has arrived to camp, they prepare everything for your arrival they work so hard.
Even our horse man Ali was the best.
The tour itself is great beautiful surroundings and scenery, the trek to salkantay was difficult but worth it.
We had a couple of changes to our plans but for the better, we ended up going to the hot springs and zip lining and it was THE best experience, the zip lining is insane, i am so glad Vincente added this into our tour.
Unfortunately the views from Machu Picchu was foggy but the knowledge Vincente had about Inca history was second to none.
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.
What A Trip!! Russell and Rosa were such excellent guides for this classic Inca Trail trip. We learned so much history along the way while being challenged with breath taking… read more hiking trails. The support staff and Julio Cesar our chef made the trip even more amazing with delicious local Peruvian dishes and comfortable camping experiences. I made great friends along the way despite knowing individuals for only 4 days. Machu Picchu is the icing on the cake as you enter this beautiful scenic ruin city. I promise you will not regret booking a trip with TreXperience!!
Brilliant tour, very well organised, trek was accessible to everyone and porters were amazing. JJ and Juan were great guides with lots of information, stories and great humour. Raymundo as… read more top chef was also great the food was insane and portions were massive!
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.
From the moment we met Robbie the night before the trek, he explained it very thoroughly and made us feel at ease that he is going to be our guide.… read more Robbie took great care of us during the trek, made sure we stay hydrated and breaks as needed. He was very informative with all the Inca sites along the way to Machu Picchu. We def learned about the history of Peru. The porters were amazing. Every meal we had were delicious, I am still thinking the soup we had every night! Each morning we were awaken with hot coca tea and hot water to wash up. At each stop site for lunch and dinner we were given fresh water and soap to wash our hands. Every moment with TreXperience were very thoughtful! To top it off, our guide Robbie made us hot espresso when we arrive to the highest peak of the trek! It was definitely one of the highlights of the trip! You definitely won’t regret if you choose TreX
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, 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.
Robinson and Sol were amazing tour guides!! They were so informative and helpful throughout the 4 days and made sure the whole group were having an amazing time.
The chefs… read more were amazing- best food I’ve ever eaten! There was so much food and they catered so well for all dietary requirements. The porters were so good as well, they worked so hard for us and still seemed so happy. Amazing trip overall
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.
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!
Had an amazing experience getting to know the history and culture of the city, as well as our Tour Guide! Vincent was an amazing tour guide. He dove into the… read more true history of Cusco and the Incan Empire.
He really took care of our needs. My dad got tired along the way and Vincent was still able to provide a fulfilling tour both on foot (for myself) and by van (for my dad).
We had somewhere to be directly after the tour and him and Donny, our driver were kind enough to offer driving us straight there after the tour!
Not only was our tour filled with breathtaking views and informative lessons, it was welcoming and filled with even better people! I would highly recommend this to others.
Spectacular! From start to finish everything was clear and well organized. Pick up went as planned and the ride was comfortable, the company also stored the rest of our stuff.… read more We were given duffle bags for things that we didn’t want or need in our day backs and those were carried by amazing porters, more on them later. We also rented sleeping bags, inflatable pads and tracking poles -everything was in very good condition and served us well. The food throughout the whole trek was just out of this world. I don’t know how they managed to cook such an wholesome dishes in conditions that one finds on a hike, but it was incredible, from traditional Peruvian soups, ceviche to cakes (yes, that’s right). The guides were always helpful, cheerful and ready to say something interesting. Porters were supporting and the service they provide is unbelievable, we didn’t worry about anything (and there is a lot of things to worry about/they provide: food, camps, water, tents and other facilities), because we knew that we can rely on them.
Only time when we felt a bit uncomfortable was during the "tipping ceremony".
All in all we got to see sooo many lovely views, animals, plants and history, while hiking safely and supporting the local people.
Inca trail is hard but so worth it. Thank you Trexperience for a chance to be a part of this.
I was looking for an alternative trekking experience and came across Huchuy Qosqo +Inca Trail 4D offered by Trexperience.
I’m a solo traveler so I booked just for… read more myself and it also turned out I was the only person (still low no. of tourists in post-pandemic and everyone goes for Inca or Salkantay trek) to book this trekking on specific dates.
Trexperience therefore basically organised a private trekking for me. For the first two days it was just me, my guide Maribel, chef Samuel and sous-chef Cipriano trekking to Huchuy Qosqo. And they took such a great care of me. Maribel is a fantastic and passionate guide with great English. She was my mom, my sister, my friend, my guide, my everything for two days. She’s also super knowledgeable about all the fauna and flora in the Andes and also she knows a lot about the Inca history. I could have not wished fot a better guide than Maribel!
Samuel and Cipriano were a great company too. And they were preparing delicious food. It was a true gourmet experience! Meals were big and they prepared variety of delicious food.
Maribel, Samuel and Cipriano were like family to me and I’m so grateful for the time we spent together. The last day they also taught me how to make a traditional Peruvian bbq! :)
Oh and I highly recommend Huchuy Qosqo trekking, beautiful landscapes and views. A lot of llamas and alpacas but no tourists or crowds like on Inca/Salkantay trek.
The next two days I joined a small group of five for the Short Inca trail. Also a great experience and I recommend asking for Jose Luis (Pepe). He is fun and experienced Machu Picchu guide!
Overall I highly recommend Trexperience!
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.
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!
This 4 day Salkantay trek by TreXperience was above and beyond what I imagined! From beginning to end there was excellent communication and the team is amazing. Our guide Nilo… read more was excellent. He is a great guy with so much knowledge of the land and culture to teach you. He kept our spirits up during the more challenging parts of the hike and we had great conversations during the whole trek. He also took many pictures for us which was appreciated! From morning to night the team takes great care of you by waking you up with coca tea and an amazing breakfast, snacks, water, huge lunches and dinners, gives you all the details you need and makes sure you’re feeling well on the hike never leaving anyone behind, and of course coca leaves to help with the altitude! I felt so well taken care of and safe the entire trek and met so many amazing people. Thanks to the chefs Celso, Juan, and Leucadio for the AMAZING meals (it is insane what they are able to make on the trek! Some of the best food we had in Peru!). I would 100 % recommend using TreXperience if you plan on hiking in Peru. We had such an amazing time and all the transfers and details went so smoothly. They think of every detail and let you know what to expect everyday which makes things so stress free. The visit to Machu picchu was so informative thanks to Nilo’s expertise! Thanks again Nilo and the entire TreXperience team!!
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!
