    We took some extra snacks and goodies to give away to kids along the trek. It was such a unique experience. Our guide seemed to like the gesture and did some translating from Quechua to English for us to speak a little to the children. That was the best... Show more

    A friend and I were the only women on the trek, so we were a little uncomfortable at first. But, everyone was very respectful. The staff was very professional, and the porters were actually very shy. Make sure you have a sturdy pair of trekking boots... Show more

    We were really worried about getting altitude sickness as we live at sea level and were flying to Cuzco specifically for this trek. It was smart to stay one night in Cuzco to adjust. The coca tea and chewing coca leaves helped us alot, apart from our... Show more

    I missed out getting a space on the Inca Trail and was really disappointed about it, but a friend recommended Lares and I thought, why not! I'm so happy I did this one especially after hearing about the crowds and queues on the Inca Trail. We were... Show more

    We had a rough time with the altitude but our guide Junior was very helpful, never leaving us behind. He was a true gentleman, patient and helpful. The coca leaf tea and simply chewing on coca leaves, although bitter tasting helped us overcome the... Show more
