    The service, from introduction to final goodbyes, was excellent. Our guide was second to none and highly passionate at what he did. He took us to places off the normal tourist route and was very keen for us to expierence the rural Peruvian life.

    Great insight, that I would not have experienced as a solo traveler. Our CEO Elias did a great job, he has incredible knowledge and shared it with passion. Perfectly organized, solved every problem and took care of everyone of us.

    It's a great way to see a country - especially if there are language or cultural considerations that may be harder to traverse on your own.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is there a weight minimum for the porters on the lares trek?

    Please read the information below in regards to their porters:

    "In our continued effort to support the rights of the porters on the Inca Trail, we would like ensure that they never exceed the weight limit for their packs as set out by the Peruvian authorities. Porters are allowed to carry no more than 6kg of personal belongings per hiker (for all other Peru treks the limit is 8kg). That means that including your sleeping bag, toiletries, clothing, etc, you are allowed a total weight of 6kg for the hike which will be carried in a duffle bag provided by our local office. Any additional weight must then be carried by you in your day pack. To help achieve this goal we recommend that you carry travel sized toiletries, that you bring sport sandals that can be worn with socks (which are lighter than running/walking shoes) and that you limit electronics to those that you are willing to carry.
