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.

Unique experience

The classic Inca Trail itself is highly recommended. Unique nature mixed with the Inca history. An unforgettable adventure. In addition, there is the very good organization of TreXperience, the team around Charly and Co. and the service offered. There was nothing missing and the freshly cooked food in the Andes was unique. Thank you for these unforgettable moments.
