Our top, luxury Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu.
Arrive at Machu Picchu in style, feeling refreshed and energised after staying in secluded campsites, away from the crowds.
Choice of boutique hotels in colonial city of Cusco and Aguas Calientes.
Experience the best of Peru and Andean hospitality and products.
I think only one work can describe our trip and that is ‘spectacular!’.
When it comes to the trek, we wanted an adventure and that is exactly what we got! Our guide Lobo was outstanding! Incredibly knowledgable, fun, patient and inspirational in lots of ways, he contributed massively to our huge enjoyment of the hike.
It was 5* - I really cannot rate anything higher - we were seriously impressed by everything!
I have already been raving to all my co-workers about the trip and recommending Andean Trails - you certainly made a good impression!

Well, we survived the Inca trail and were very pleased we selected the luxury trek with the smaller camp sites and extra day to complete the 42km. Macchu Picchu in all its glory was was bathed in sunshine on days 4&5 so we were very lucky.
We were lucky enough to spot a small black bear as it crossed our path on route! Our guide Nilo stated he has only seen two bears in the last five years. Thought you may like to see this.
Thank you also for all your help in booking this very memorable adventure! Your info and organisation was much appreciated and really helpful.
We had a fabulous trek. Thank you again.

I think only one work can describe our trip and that is ‘spectacular!’. Both of us want to sincerely express our thanks and gratitide for everything you did to make our trip as incredible as it was. From beginning to end, everything worked like clockwork, we just seemed to moved seamlessly from one stage to the next. When it comes to the trek, we wanted an adventure and that is exactly what we got!
Our guide Lobo was outstanding! Incredibly knowledgable, fun, patient and inspirational in lots of ways, he contributed massively to our huge enjoyment of the hike. He was always keen to ensure that everyone was safe, happy and well fed!
The food was 5 star, we were in a group of 8 and we could not believe that night after night the chef prepared the most incredible meals, both of us agreed that we ate better at 4,000m than we did at sea level! The porters who supported the trek were also outstanding, nothing was too much trouble, everything was done with a smile and every single porter was quite literally olympic in their efforts to make sure everything (dining tent, food, toilets etc) was timed perfectly to be ready as soon as we arrived to camp. The views were breathtaking, the hiking fantastic and a good challenge, the weather perfect and we met some incredible people on our journey and that was before we even made it to Machu Picchu - which was everything we hoped it would be and more! You will be glad to hear that I also managed to pack within our weight limit too… another achievement for me! Neither of us can speak highly enough of our trip. It really was one of those holidays where you come back with you heart still in the place you left. I have already been raving to all my co-workers about the trip and recommending Andean Trails- you certainly made a good impression! The highlight was going to sleep on the second night camping and seeing the cloud sit below in a huge gulf of a valley with the mountains rising from the clouds under an incredible carpet of stars! Certainly no low points on this trip! It was 5* - I really cannot rate anything higher - we were seriously impressed by everything! Thanks so much again Alan, we really did have the dream trip - thanks for everything you did to make it happen!
