    What an amazing experience. One must climb the Inca trail to get to Machu Picchu in order to appreciate the enormity of it's beauty. We were so well cared for and taken care of on this once in a lifetime trip.

    My husband and I went on a trek in Peru with OneSeed. I would absolutely travel with them again. The trip was stress-free thanks to OneSeed’s planning and our excellent local guide. We always felt safe and we learned so much. Bravo!

    I had an unforgettable authentic experience. Our guide Herlin Apaza was superb. I learned so much about Peru and Inca culture from him. He has the inside view to Peru and Inca civilization.

    The hike was very difficult, partially because my husband and I are 63 and 57, respectively. That being said, however, it was VERY rewarding to actually complete the hike and see Machu Picchu on the last day. One Seed thought of... Show more
