    Fabricio was incredible. I actually got an gastrointestinal infection during the inca trail but he was so compassionate and sensitive to ensure that I was ok. He checked on me often and got me a doctor. He even gave me his number to contact him even... Show more

    The porters were great, the food was amazing and we were all kept safe. Lose one mark as the guide in Cusco did not communicate information well. I suggest he prints/writes down basic information for the next day and pin it up on a pin board.

    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Of course, we can! Once you have a confirmed booking on this tour, we can request additional accommodation for you with the tour operator.

    • I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

      A single supplement is available on this tour at an additional cost if you would prefer your own room/tent on the tour. However, if you don't mind sharing, you will be roomed with a fellow traveller of the same gender in both the hotels and tents.

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      Intrepid chooses not to provide hotel lists until day 1 of the tour however they have confirmed they use a combination of camping (with basic facilities) and hotels, depending on your choice on the tour of doing the hike or train ride. If you choose to do the camping for the hike you will be in twin-share tents, with foam camping mats provided.

    • Do I need a visa?

      As a tour booking website, TourRadar cannot organise visas for you on your behalf as the visa requirements are regularly being updated and vary for the nationality of one traveller to the next. It is for this reason that we recommend checking with your local embassy or consulate website for the latest up to date information.

    • What day is the best time to arrive for this tour?

      Most travellers choose to arrive a day or so earlier than the tour start date so that they can get used to the altitude and explore the city more in their own time.

    • What is the closest airport to fly into?

      You can fly directly into Cusco to Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport.
