    Machu Picchu is a beautiful place, but only the trek on the original Inka paths made our tour an unforgettable adventure. Our guide Percy was AMAZING and made the hike super enjoyable. He was always super friendly and competently explained us nature and Inka culture. In addition, the food was much better than we could have expected. Our chef Victor and his team of porters provided us with better food than we got in the majority of restaurants!

    The Inca Trail was amazing. Everything worked perfectly. We were amazed by the food of our cook Victor and by the hard work of the porters. They are doing an incredible job! On the trail itself we had spectacular views of the mountains, nature and inca sites. The trail was not too hard at anytime since we always had the time we needed to get to a mountain for exampel. Our guide Percy was amazing. He had a huge knowledge about everything and explained a lot and could answer all question. On top of that he made sure everyone was having fun and enjoying the trip. We felt taken care of at all times. Getting to Machu Picchu after hiking 4 days felt incredible. Also the tents were good. We had enough space and the tentsites were very nice. I would recommend that trail!

    We went on the Inca Trail with Bamba Experience in late August, and we had an amazing trip! We were a small group - only 5 people - and we had the most amazing experience. Everything was great and well planed. Our guide, Percy Gonza Manrique, was amazing and really contributed to the trip being the most incredible experience. He had the most amazing attitude, and he was always positive and tried to make the trip as great as possible for us. His good mood was so contagious, and we always felt happy and safe during the trip. And his sence of humour was hillarious! He was well informed and knew so much about the Incas and the trail, and it was really great listening to his stories, when we stopped at the sights along the route. He informed us about everything and he was very attentive to our wellbeing. Percy was so great to talk to, and so much fun to do this trip with! His positive mental attitude and way of being made our trip through the Inca Trail a truly amazing experience! :-) The porters were so nice and really attentive. They worked so hard to make our trip amazing, and they really contributed to the trail being a great experience! The food was really great and both the cook and the waiter did a really great job! We couldn't have dreamed about a better trip - thank you so much for an experience of a lifetime, Percy!

    This is the best experience ever. It's hard, is challenging, but you get through. The staff are amazing and attend to your needs and ensure you are comfortable. They assist you along the way to ensure you make it through. They are informative. The porters set everything up before you arrive to camp. I had a wonderful time. The only negative would be to have waterproof tents. We got very lucky with the weather as it only rained once and at night but in the morning all our mattresses and sleeping bags were wet. Had it rain again, this would have been very uncomfortable. This is really the only negative. The tour is great, tour guide Diego was great. The food.. omg. So good. I recommend this tour to anyone and everyone thinking about doing the inka trail.

    Machu Picchu 3N 4D trip. The trip overall was excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The trip was as I expected, apart from having to spend money during the first two days on water. This should be made clearer as to how much money will be needed for such essentials. I feel this has to be considered as most people only took money for tips, and the porters/guides really do deserve all of the tip money taken along. Both guides were excellent, they were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about what they did. You could tell they had a passion for their job. Transportation and accommodation were fine and as you would expect for the kind of trip we were on.

    We had a great experience in the Inca trail heading to Machu Picchu. The food was also delicious. We had a lot of fun. Our guide managed to make us pass the first by the Sun Gate. I saw the sunrise at sun gate and no one at Machu Picchu. I was alone as I sped up the rest of the group arrived also very early in comparison with the other groups.

    We spent 4 incredible days doing the inca trail trek! We were 12 and the guide was very friendly and had a lot of knowledge. He has also very funny. The horsemen team and the chef were also excellent, there is no word to describe the food in these places. At the end of the day they were preparing popcorn and hot chocolate. They adapted the meal to us as I don’t eat lactose and two of our group were vegetarians. The trek was incredible and in spite it was the rainy season we were lucky to have a wonderful weather. If you have any trouble with your legs I recommend you to rent to Bamba some walking poles it’s not expensive at all.

    We definitely were amazed by the site, all the views and the ruins. What we can say is that the second day was perhaps the most complicated for reaching this incredible place but we persevered. We were so lucky to have horsemen with us to help. Lucio prepared very tasty food and it happened that before dinner he prepared popcorn and hot chocolate. The two guides were also absolutely friendly and expert in their job but they explained us things with passion.

    An amazing experience during the inca trail with Bamba! The guide was an element of the success of this experience, very friendly, funny and with his encouragement was very pleasant. We tasted some very fine food, and as for the camping, it was very cool! I recommend for sure the inca trail!

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

    • Can you confirm for me when the Trek actually starts?

      Even though the Inca Trail is not just for experienced or professional trekkers, it does require stamina and leg strength specially because of its up hill aspect. Also, you need to consider that when you're not used to high altitude the trek becomes a little bit more challenging. Therefore, we advise a basic fitness level for enduring the daily distances.
