    An amazing experience. Hard work but well worth it. Breathtaking views. Meals prepared by the crew were excellent and Richard, our guide, was super friendly, professional, knowledgeable and very patient. An awesome experience, words cannot do it justice.

    It's defensively an amazing experience, but the tour operator should've been clear about level of physical fitness for this hike. It's 1,000% for ADVANCED hikers. If you are not fit, think twice before signing up for this, otherwise this entire trip... Show more

    The hike was difficult, but our guide Miguel “Mickey” and our assistant guide Eber were both excellent. Their Knowledge of the Inka history and compassion were exceptional. The porters and chefs were all great.

    A really good trip that was varied and exciting. The only reason I did not score it a 10 is that there are quite a few extra costs once you arrive which weren't clearly communicated when booking the trip.

    He was a helper guide as a trainer but he was helpful. Because I got an altitude sickness on the first day and he kept watching after and helped me carry things through the day.
