bev "I can thoroughly recommend G Adventures. David Herrera Almiron, Ever and the porters team were all absolutely fantastic! They worked over and beyond the call of duty. David and Ever shared so much amazing knowledge, they were fun to be with, very personable and I felt very safe too. Also the porter crew were outstanding. The chefs were fabulous and catered very well for me as a vegetarian. ..."

    My Inca trail trip with Gadventures was amazing! Our group turned into a family very quickly and we took care of each-other immediately, we were all in it together! The hike I found very hard, but I completed it which was very empowering! Jonny & Paolo(assistant guide) our guides were exceptional, the food and camping on the trip were wonderful and exceeded my expectations, our group age ranged from 16-67 years old so it was a great mix and from various backgrounds. I do however feel that the porters on the trip deserve more recognition and payment, their kindness and helpfulness is wonderful but they are up first, eat last, to bed last, and the amount of load they carry on their backs is crazy! and they should not have to rely on the tips of passengers who already have paid a large amount for the tour, I was also disappointed after learning that the porters tips are shared with the chefs... they should have separate offerings , the chef already makes a higher wage than the porters! In the end, it was a great trip and would choose Gadventures again!

    WOW! What a trip! We did the Cusco Stay option, and really enjoyed it. We were very happy with our choices. We had 2 guides, Odi (Odilio) and Henri, and both were outstanding at their job. The driver's were FANTASTIC on some very interesting roads. What a fascinating and scenically beautiful place Peru is, and G Adventures really immerse you in the culture. The people are so warm and friendly. Machu Picchu is just beyond belief, you really need to see it.

    Did 4 day 3 nights Inca Trail with my daughter. Tour is great our CEO Martin was fantastic. Our guide on the track was not. Would not let me rest told me I had to keep up with the fast pace setters. I started one hour before everyone else. My daughter was sick on the down hill from Dead Womans Pass and he barked if we keep stopping will take us 3 hours to finish and we were half an hour from the Camp. The guide Julio did not keep pace with the hikers either on second and third day. Porters were just fantastic. Food is was great. Overall G Adventure is a good company and our family has used them 3 times now. Beware of tipping. Its very expensive like 1200 sols.

    The guide was excellent, Rumi is such a champion and the company has ethical use of local porters as they carry a reasonable amount of weight (some of the other company's ask porters to carry 50kg, please don't go with any company that ask over 30kg of the porters). Rumi was super knowledgeable and local so I feel we had a much richer experience, and Machu Picchu isn't the same without the trail. The G Adventures administration was TERRIBLE. Our tour voucher had the wrong hotel on it! When we called THE MORNING OF the first day of the tour we called the G Adventures office in Peru and they couldn't tell us the hotel or starting time of the tour. We ended up being late because they took hours to call our hotel back with details, again on the day that the tour started. The afternoon of the first day of the tour was when they bothered to ask me for personal details which was super annoying, could have sent me an email earlier. Would recommend, they are the biggest company and just make sure you sort details out before you get there.

    Well planned and executed. Amazing scenery, food and company. We were with people of all ages, abilities and from all over the world. We loved every minute of it, even the fact that we had to rest often because of the altitute. The schedule was perfect even for the slower movers. Very relaxed and the guides and porters were amazing

David and Ever shared so much amazing knowledge, they were fun to be with, very personable and I felt very safe too. Also the porter crew were outstanding. The chefs were fabulous and catered very well for me as a vegetarian. They even made our team "The Inca Warriors" a wonderful cake on the last night at camp on the mountainside! Wow we couldn't believe it! Thank you so much G Adventures. It was so nice to see that the company put money back into the local communities to help the people in Peru. This adventure was one I will never forgot. Much appreciated for everyone at G Adventures help making my charity fundraising challenge a success! :)

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • November 11, 2016

      My wife and I are interested in the Inka trail trip on Dec 26th. We have few questions: 1.We are in 40's and are physically more or less fit. We have done occasional 1-2 hours of recreational hiking/trekking. However, we have never done this kind of trekking before. Can you tell me if physically fit people with some or practically no experience of trekking have done this before? 2.What one should be doing to prepare for the trip? 3.Do we need hire porters? 4.Do the porters carry anything other than backpacks? Is there a weight limit? 5.Can we leave some luggage in the hotel in Cusco while we go for trekking? 6.Does USD acceptable in all places we will be visiting? 7.What is included when staying in a hotel? 8.Is the guide always going to be with the group for the entire duration of trekking?

      The physical rating for this tour is:
      Physical Rating: 4 - Demanding
      Some high-altitude hikes or more strenuous activities, but accessible to most healthy travellers. Many people who hike the Inca Trail it is their first time hiking in this nature so in a guided tour is the best way to go!
      The guide will stay with the group for the duration of the trek.

      Porters are included in the tour cost, please see the trip notes for recommendations on what to bring and weight allowances.

      It is fine to leave luggage in secure storage in the hotel in Cusco during the trek.
