    Overall, my husband and myself had a fantastic experience. We were lucky to be the only ones at our group, so we had a guide just for us! This made it very personalised, specially made easier the hike, as we could take the photos we wanted and stop when needed, although for my husband, he would say that the guide was walking too fast. All the activities (cycling, rafting and the zip line) were very well organised, felt very safe and we really enjoyed them. Watch out for the mosquitos! We were eaten despite the repellent. The thermal baths are not included but definitely recommended. The places we stayed overnight were very comfy, clean, had hot showers and the food was also good. If you are a big eater, there are also opportunities to buy snacks and water. Our guide Jaime was brilliant, giving us tips, information, always looking after us, making sure that we were fine and that everything was running smoothly. It is a great four day journey to Machu Picchu!

Amazing trip, guide, and activity

There are so many treks to get to the Machu Picchu. We chose the jungle one with my friend, seeking for adrenaline and sensation. The whole organisation was perfect (which is enjoyable in Peru), the places they made us stay and eat at were really nice (careful because it's not always the case with certain hikes / treks you book) - and that makes a complete difference on the overall trek experience. Our guide, Fredy, was exceptional. His permanent good mood, smile, stories, anecdotes really made us enjoy his company. I personally got a tonsillitis in the middle of the trek and Fredy found the right antibiotic, on a Sunday morning, in a small village - just so professional! The activities were super nice too! Only comment is I would probably switch the ziplining for another activity (canyoning would be awesome), as the ziplining was really average. Definitely recommend and would do it again!

What a great adventure during the Inca Jungle Trek 4 day / 3 night. The views and activities of rafting, biking and ziplining are truly magnificent. We recommend to everyone. Franco de Inkayni is a great Guide, professional and very knowledgeable about the Incas, he will teach you and captivate you during his tourist information. To do!

everything went very well, Guido is a passionate guide and likes to share his anecdotes and knowledge. The meals were good but especially the well-supervised activities! Congratulations and thank you for these unforgettable moments!

Very friendly and helpful supervisors, good equipment, some simple but clean accommodations, good food, professional guide. All in all a very special experience!
