We did the classic Inca Trail, 3 nights and 4 days with TreXperience. The whole trip more than exceeded our expectations. The entire Trexperience team was concerned about our well-being at all times. We felt like we were being carried on hands. Our two guides, Elvis and Yoner did a great job. Both are very competent and gave us a lot of information about the Incas every day, accompanied us on the hiking trail and always had everything under control. In addition, both are super sociable and we had an unforgettable time together. The Porter team doing the hard work was just amazing. You get our full respect for your work, because nothing works without the porters. Our chef Raimundo surprised us every day at breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food was delicious and better than many restaurants. We were usually surprised with a 3-course menu!

Highly Recommended!

I can absolutely recommend the Inca Trail at TreXperience. The company is socially committed and you get the impression that the porters are treated well. Our guide Edwin was really nice and brought us to Machu Picchu in a good mood. I can only recommend our head chef Carmello! The food was plentiful, incredibly tasty and tailored to all wishes / needs. So the culinary specialties were prepared vegetarian for me.

Best Experience in my life because of Trexperience

The Inkatrail was through its nature and really interesting history so beautiful, I can never ever forget. Best comfort and flexibility on all this trail was given by Trexperience and their porters who did an unbelievable job to us. Especially our every day Breakfast, Lunch, teatime and dinner were another highlight on this trail. Our guide Joyce was as well as the porters always taking care of us. All in all the organisation by Trexperience was drawn by professionality and I would recommend everyone, who looks for a nice hiking Trip on path of the Inkas to do it with Trexperience and the very nice crew.
