    Our guide spoke Quechua so we had a special interaction with the village kids. We gave them some snack and treats and the guide translated for us for a little while. We were able to take some really cool pictures of them and we were the only tourists in... Show more

    We were two solo female travelers and thought that it might be awkward, but decided to book anyway. Everyone was great and the staff very professional. They were all very shy actually so it was kind of cute. Take good trekking clothes and boots, they... Show more

    Lares trek, the guide, the food, the landscapes, and scenery really went beyond my expectations. It was one of the most authentic trips I've ever been on.

    We flew from sea level to Cuzco for this trek and decided to hang out in Cuzco for a few days prior as we were worried about altitude sickness. We bought sorochi pills sold locally, but our guide Junior who was born in the moutnains told us the most... Show more

    I was disappointed about not being able to book the Inca Trail and had to decide between Salkantay and Lares. I chose this one because it was 4 days instead of 5 and seemed like an easier route. It was a true pleasure to have done this trek, we hardly... Show more

    No setbacks or complaints! Lares was real, remote, unparalleled route to reach Machu Picchu in a different way than the popular Inca Trail. We will be back sometime!

    We wanted to see Machu Picchu but have a different experience on the way, rather than just taking the train with the masses. This was the perfect trek. We saw local villages, hiked to 4,500 meters, saw unknown ruins, camped in the Andes. A dream come true!
