    We spent a great trip with all our family. It was a great adventure and also a lot of fun, thanks to our guide! It’s very cool to know that someone is looking after all the group but also motivating us in a positive way. He was also very passionate and liked to share with us all his knowledge. I truly recommend this tour!

    Fantastic landscape! There are moments that are difficult, but worth it. You feel great when you accomplish everything. There were lots of great views of nature during the trek. One of the best moments was Day 3, after a hard day, we could relax in the hot springs. Our guide, was fantastic was very sympathetic and told us a lot of interesting things.

    With a friend. We choose Bamba and it was the smart choice. We did the Salkantay trek, it was a very challenging hike, but was worth doing this route. Our guide was amazing, he speaks a great deal of english, and he explained to us a lot of things about history and culture. Bamba planned the trip, and informs on what to expect. Each night the guide informed us of the program for the next day, and gives suggestions for those which aren't ready for a long journey. The staff was great, and specially the cook who prepared great meals. Lots of other travellers choose big companies, but i assure you that Bamba is a great choice and is a worthy competitor than those mainstream companies. It was one of the best holidays I have ever had.

    I finished the Salkantay trek with a great guide from Bamba Experience. I travelled alone but it was a great experience. I met others travellers, and they supported me when I had difficulties. There were differences with the abilities of the travellers. We ate three fantastics meals by day, and the landscapes were amazing ! I recommend it :)

    I think the Salkantay trek is the best experience of my life. The views were fantastic, but the adventure itself was amazing. The group was awesome, and so was the guide, Percy. He was amazing, told us lots of about culture and history. He was very funny, very passionate, a great guy ! Thank you for this trek !
