    The camping part wasn't enjoyable. Right by railway line to Machu Pichu so very noisy and 2nd night only 1-2 km out of town so could have stayed in hotel. 3rd night we were up at 3.30am (4th day) and trekked on a goat track along the side of a mountain... Show more

    This tour did not deliver the promised trek to Machu Picchu. Instead they focused on a compilation of treks on local Inca routes close to Cuszo that lead to nowhere in particular. The camp sites were close to the rail lines and thus very noisy at night... Show more

Frequently Asked Questions

    • Would you be able to give me an idea of what price we are looking at for twin share, flying from perth WA with all internal flights and allowing money for meals that are not supplied; also any other fees that are not included, please. What is the best time to go, weather wise? Do you have to be really fit to do this trip ? Is there another option if you do not want to trek for the couple of days ?

      Thank you for your interest in TouRadar and in this amazing trip with World Expeditions.

      Unfortunately we at TourRadar do not handle any flights and so we would not be able to help you with this.

      With regards to the trekking please read this the following:

      Introductory adventures are designed with the first time trekker in mind. They are challenging enough to make it a real adventure holiday, however the daily physical exercise is limited to around six hours and altitudes generally less than 4100m. Introductory adventures are not necessarily easy. There will be some long steep ascents and some rough ground to cover. Remember trekking rarely involves flat terrain. *Two to three months prior to departure you should spend thirty minutes to one hour exercising, three or four times per week eg. Hard walking, jogging or cycling. To prepare for a walking holiday we recommend you take every opportunity to walk up and down stairs and/or hills, for leg strengthening and aerobic fitness. Please remember the fitter you are the more you will enjoy your holiday.

    • Would you be able to give me an idea of what price we are looking at for the airfare from Perth WA (with all internal flights included)?

      We specialise in giving you the best tours from around the world, however the tours we offer do not include airfare and we do not book or advise on airfare. You will be responsible for booking your flights to meet with the group at the starting city. We do not recommend booking airfare before confirming your tour.

    • How safe is this trip?

      Our expert tour guides are fully equipped with a first aid kit, carrying a range of medical equipment as well as a sound knowledge of varying first aid procedures. Additionally, the comfortable and secure transport, accommodation and plethora of activities make for a fun, adventurous but very safe tour!
