I went on the Classic Inca Trail 4 day 3 night hike. We had two absolutely amazing guides Sarah and Charlie. They went above and beyond to make sure we… read more had everything we needed to be comfortable and have a incredible time. I expected to eat well but the food exceeded my expectations! I thought we ate like kings and queens! I didn’t bring gloves because it was hot during the day in Cusco but I wish that I had because we ended up in an ice pellet storm on day 2. It was challenging but SO rewarding!!! I am so glad I chose to see Machu Picchu this way instead of the train and bus. Seeing it through the sun gate was fantastic! I did train before this hike and would recommend doing that because it is much harder to hike at altitude! Overall I had the absolute time of my life!!! Would highly recommend Trexperience and would do it myself again!
This company "suggests" that everyone should tip 80-100 sols to each porters and 10-15% of the tour fee to guide as a tip after booking. it’s not right to… read more inform that after booking. Even though each tour company said that tips are not included. but I have asked people who booked other travel agencies and there is no "suggestion" on how much to tip.
The tour fee is 700 US dollars per person. Even if each person gives minimum 10% as the tips(70USD), our group was 16 people, then that is 1,120 US dollars for the tour guides for 4 days working. I think that’s too much. I’m totally fine with the tips for porters, because they really did hard work. but giving 70 USD for our tour guides? Nope
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. We ate so well every day thanks to the chef Timo, some of the best food I’ve had in Peru and we even got a cake for our friends birthday!
Would highly recommend!
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. Maribel was so lovely and caring and full of positive reinforcement. The food was amazing with the staff preparing special dishes for Mother’s Day and a honeymoon – thank you to Julio Cesar! All in all a great trip :)
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.
What else can be said. Amazing views the entire trip, physically demanding at times definitely need to be in good shape, however it was absolutely worth it. This is an… read more experience I will carry me for the rest of my life. Eddy and Sol were the best tour guides anyone can ask for, always helpful, willing to lend a hand at all times, they treated all of us on the trek like family. The food was fantastic, the campsites were great, the experience is something that I will forever remember. Thank you so much
The experience overall was beyond my wildest dreams, the views were breath taking and the crew was absolutely fantastic. From our guides Jose Calderon, Rosa Huilloa, Lourdes Soto who made… read more us enjoy every strep of this journey with their care, insightful information, and amazing attitude. We began as strangers and seem to have become somewhat like family by the end of this experience! The porters who were the hidden heroes who setup our camps before we even arrive and have everything planned out. And ofcourse, the food was amazing! Thanks to our chef for catering to our every need and dietary restrictions and providing us with the most delicious meals!
Will definitely miss this experience of a lifetime.
We had an excellent experience with trexperience on the Inca trail to Machu Picchu. We had Charlie and Sara as guides and they were amazing. Charlie has an incredible knowledge… read more of both history and the nature, which he shared with the whole group on the way. Furthermore we had amazing food along the way! We even got three courses at every meal. All in all an amazing experience!
I’ll admit this was a gruelling trek, but the feeling of walking into Machu Picchu and all the history and culture along the way was so much better than taking… read more the train and bus in for a day trip. Half our group almost didnt complete the trip, two had sore knees from downhill steps, one had a sore back and altitude sickness, and a teenager burnt himself out on the first day throwing up and diarrhea. But our guides, Eddie and Rosa were excellent. They really cared about the group and lived the Quechuan culture of Family. Eddie was extremely passionate about the history and culture and Rosa was always smiling and laughing. porters from Pisac were also amazing. They ran around furiously after tirelessly hiking up and down dead womans pass to set up tents and mattresses for those that were struggling so they could get some rest. One of the group that was sick fell into some bushes and got small burrs all over his sweater. One porter spent half an hour picking the burrs out while he got some rest. Way above and beyond. Thank you Juvenal for all that you and your porters did for us. As most people say, the food was also excellent. Chef Raymundo made some amazing dishes and his fruit art was incredible. There was honestly way too much food. More than our group could possibly eat. If you want a truly unique experience and that once in lifetime experience of walking into Machu Picchu after a well earned trek, then do this trek. You definitely cant go wrong with TreXperience.
The entire trip was impeccably planned. Pepe and Filio were extremely knowledgeable guides! The chef Sinche was amazing the food and the presentation were top notch, couldn’t believe it given… read more the circumstances of being so far away from a big city.
Despite being a solo traveller, my guide Sara made it seem as if I went for the trip with a friend. From start to finish, she was very knowledgeable and… read more respected one’s physical limitations when you are reaching 5000m above sea level and just come off of a 4 day Inca Trail! I would imagine most companies just pick you up, take you there and then drop you back but this tour had GOURMET breakfast and lunch included prepared by the genius chef that is Lorenzo with his assistant Miguel looking out onto the mountain range. The driver James was equally incredible driving for several hours on roads that many would not dare to try.
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.
One of best trip had with my family and friends visiting unforgettable Incas
Not going to forget Elvis our tour guy( one of the best ) … read more who present and educated us with all Incas history , can’t forget our cook Raymond who did tremendous job preparing food for us , as well very organize group of porters leading by Ruben I should mention also Manolo who help us any way he can

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. He led us at the perfect pace, and understood when we needed to pause for a photo or breathing break. I would highly recommend booking through TreXperience for any treks you’re looking to do while in Cusco!

We had an amazing experience! The 2day activity had a nice balance of physical exersion, sight seeing, and culture. Our tour lead, Pepe, was very knowledgeable and fun. We are… read more so happy with this experience.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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 was an incredible experience. Edy and Yoner were fun and welcoming and made the trip a blast. They were great at providing information about each site and the culture… read more of the locals. I could not have imagined better your guides. Rolando’s food was literally to die for. I could not believe he was able to make some of the dishes in the middle of such a long trek. Jesus, our waiter, made every dinner feel like home and was lovely and attentive. Profirio and his team of porters went above and beyond expectations I didn’t even know I had. They work so hard and made everything perfect. All of the sites were beautiful and Machu Picchu is unmatched. It cannot be described in words how amazing this experience was. I HIGHLY recommend Trexperience and this group of individuals. Simply the best!
Exceeded all expectations. A truly fantastic experience. We could not have asked for a better guide in Adolfo. He is very knowledgeable about the trek, Machu Picchu, the vegetation, culture,… read more etc. Cenovio was our chef; He is very talented as well. Delicious and creative meals. The porters and horseman were also exceptional. Some of the hardest workers i’ve ever seen. Highly recommend this team.
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!
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.
Can’t recommend this company enough. Our guides, Robby and Sol, were very knowledgeable and taught us all so much about the Inca history and culture along our hike. The food… read more was above and beyond, and the porters are truly heroes. The crew brought us hot tea in the mornings and even had hot water outside our tents every morning to wash our faces. Such an unbelievable experience!
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.
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.
Great landscapes, great guides, lot of knowledge and history. This is an must have in any Peru trip.
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.
Food was fantastic.… read more Great group friendship. Would recommend.
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.
The trekking with our guide William was amazing. The route true the andes and the amazon was nothing like i’ve ever seen and the campsites were one of the most… read more beautiful i’ve ever experienced. Also the food prepared by chef Lorenzo was beyond great.
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.
An experience of a lifetime which we truly enjoyed with the Trexperience crew. Special thanks to our lead guide Jose and the wonder women guides we had, Lourdes and Rosa.… read more Thank you for all your support, guidance and the Inca stories you told along the way.

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 .
