Danielle "Great trip. Small group of 6. Communication with Percy and Alex before the trip was great and never had to wait long for a response, even with the time difference. Did find it difficult at times. Took a horse ride up one of the steepest parts of the trip and a few of us cheated and got a car for a small part of the trip. A couple of others still walked up and down a huge mountain. Edgar is very in..."

    We just came home from the Salkantay Trek and missed the family from Inkayni! We had Herlin as our guide. He was knowledgeable and patiently answered many of our questions. We liked that he sought our opinions with route options and tried his best to accommodate to our needs on the trek. Justin and Rodrigo took care of our food and lodging needs and were exemplary! They created such delicious meals that energised us for each leg of the trek. Missed their food ever since the end of the trek. Despite the trek being tough, Inkayni made us feel at home and brought the sense of family and belongingness to us throughout the trek. Thank YOU!

    An amazing trek! Our guide Edgar was very passionate about the culture and we learned so much while enjoying the gorgeous views through the mountains! The Salkantay pass was breathtaking. So beautiful!

    My husband and I took two private tours with Inkayni Peru Tours in May, one tour of Sacred Valley sites and the other of Cusco. We had a great time! The company was totally reliable, easy to work with, and they even customized our tours (a little) on our request. The tour guides were very warm, knowledgeable and very passionate about Peruvian culture. The theory of their business is that they treat you like family, and my husband and I definitely felt that. I highly recommend them!

    We had the best experience thanks to Saul our guide and Fernando our driver! Saul was so knowledgeable and welcoming. It was an individualized experience we couldn't have gotten in a big group. Transportation, tickets, hotel-everything was done for us. It was a stress-free adventure thanks to Saul and Fernando. Would not have done it any other way!

    The Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu with Inkayni Peru Tours we took last month was an incredible and unforgettable experience! Not only were the views and scenery breath-taking (quite literally at the high elevations exceeding 15,000ft !), but the Inkayni staff was helpful and friendly every step along the way. Upon arrival in Cusco, checking in to our hotel, providing food/restaurant suggestions, and getting us back to the airport 10 days later, John, Gabriella, Alex, and Fernando were an enormous help. And out on the trek, we could not have asked for a better guide than Edgar, a better pair of chefs than Justin and Felix, or a better porter/horseman than Simon. I would highly recommend this adventure to anyone!

    We just got home about one week ago, and we had a wonderful time! Our crew of staff were very pleasant and helpful. Edgar was our guide and he was not only knowledgeable, but fun and a good companion. Justin, our chef, made incredible meals the entire trek and helped out in other ways as needed. He and his assistant, Felix, were both much appreciated. I really recommend Inkayni Peru Tours. They will take good care of you and make it enjoyable and as smooth as possible. Thank you to all for the great trip!

    A trip of a lifetime From the moment we arrived in Cusco we were taken care of, our hotel was excellent with a breath taking view of the city. It was of excellent quality and breakfast was great. Our day trips with Inkayni Peru Tours were well organized, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and spoke fantastic English. After two days we headed off to trek Salkantay and then to Machu Picchu. Again everything was taken care of, our tents were excellent, the cook prepared unbelievable dishes for us and our guide could not have been more helpful and encouraging.

    Spot on, the scenery is absolutely stunning. Some of the hikes really take it out of you, but it is well worth sucking it up and getting on with it, the rewards are plentiful! We had Justin as our chef and he is just a Wizard in the kitchen, totally mind blown by how he made so much food, in such small places. Really couldn't fault this trip in anyway, aside from the mosquitos, but I don't think we can hold that against them! Would definitely recommend this to everyone.

Took a horse ride up one of the steepest parts of the trip and a few of us cheated and got a car for a small part of the trip. A couple of others still walked up and down a huge mountain. Edgar is very informative and passionate all throughout the trip. Who knew there was thousands of types of potatoes? The food was amazing. Unfortunately we was unable to bring the chef back to the UK with us :( The accommodation was lovely. Both hotels were very comfortable. Tents were put up for us by the team with mattresses provided. On the free day I celebrated my birthday and the Inkayni team surprised me with a birthday cake. Very thoughtful and enjoyable. Also had birthday blessings at the temple of the moon (we all choose to spend our free day with Inkayni). Amazing.

      What about safety in Peru?

      More then half of the country lives under the poverty line means that petty crime is common.

    • November 23, 2016

      What is the weather in Peru?

      Travelers flying to Cuzco (3250m), or their high altitude cities, should allow several days to acclimatize since altitude sickness can be a problem.
      In the Andes (over 3500m) average daily temperatures fall below 10°C (50°F) and overnight temperatures can dip well below freezing.
      From April to November Lima and other areas by the Pacific Ocean are enclosed in coastal fog.
      April to November is the dry season in the Andes and Altiplano. The wettest months are from December to March.
      Along the arid coastal strip, the hot summer months are from December through March.
