    Ali and Vladamire (sp?) were excellent, superb guides from start to finish. They were wise students of Inca Culture and shared as much information as we were able or wanted to absorb.

    This trip Surpassed my expectations. The tour guide,Wilbur, and my hiking guide, Marcia, were absolutely amazing! I celebrated my birthday on this trek and I was treated like a queen! Marcia and the trek support staff not only baked me a cake on top of a mountain, but also surprised me with a Peruvian delicacy as a main course. I would not hesitate to travel with Intrepid again and I would request these tour guides if I came back to Peru.

    Great trip. Everyone should do the Inca trail atleast one in their life. Just have in mind that it requires decent fitness level, specially if you are hot but alltitude sikness.

    The quarry trail was one of the best hiking trips I have ever experienced. Hiking at altitude was a new experience for me and a good challenge. The views were incredible - especially at tge 4450m summit. Our guide Carlos was excellent, and the hard-working horsemen and chefs really were outstanding. Our camps were set up by the time we arrived, and the food was delicious and plentiful. A really top experience!

Even while we were in the city of Cusco, we were able to visit museums and visit markets and popular areas. The trek itself is pretty challenging, but it is SO worth it! We were very well taken care of by the porters and the guides. I was amazed by the strength and knowledge of all the Intrepid staff. It is such a rewarding experience when you finally get to Machu Picchu, and I feel like I appreciated Machu Picchu even more due to the Inca Trail. Highly recommend this tour! Loved it!

    I travelled the world for 6 months, visiting 21 countries across 5 continents. The week I spent with Intrepid trekking the Inca Trail was the highlight - without a doubt.

    Great trip - we were informed of road closures and given another option for our trek (which was to be the lares trek) and we were very happy with the alternative (the Sokma trail)

    If you think you\'re up for it, then walking the Inca Trail is a great experience. The scenery is amazing, and luckily I had a great group which made the trip a lot of fun.

      The search function on the website is fantastic and made it very easy for me to find the right kind of tour for me. I also used the customer service line via both telephone and chat, and both were easy and extremely helpful with friendly people to answer my questions. I didn't even know a website like this existed. It made planning my vacation easy and exciting.
