    First of all, it took Tour Radar 7 days to reply to my questions. The first 2 days of the tour were OK. On the third night, at the “lodge”, i slept on the worst mattress in my life. Let me say it again, i slept on metal springs. To use the bathroom or... Show more

    Socially responsible company, great ecological policy to pack in reusable dishwear. We had tons of great food and it seemed nothing went to waste. We would travel with bamba again!

    To date, this remains our BEST MAJOR HIGHLIGHT of all South America. Salkantay and Machu Picchu beats everything else we've seen in our travels. We would come back and do it again!

    We went as a family (2kids ages 16 and 18, adults ages 50+) and have no complaints. We were well taken care of the entire time. Machu Picchu was our highlight especially being able to stay extra time on our own in the ruins until we were ready to return... Show more

    DO IT! Its not easy, but it's worth every step of the way. We savored the experience of arriving to Machu Picchu so much more after such a challenging trek to get there.

    FYI - there are some VERY EARLY wake up calls and LONG days, LONG distances trekked each day. This is a SERIOUS trek, not for amateurs. You must really love nature to enjoy this trek. It was a great way to really see the REAL PERU and an alternative... Show more
