WHY CHOOSE US

  • In the dynamic tourism market, transparency and integrity are paramount. We recognize that when comparing our prices with those of our competitors, some questions may arise. Allow me to clarify that while our prices are competitive, this in no way signifies a compromise in the quality of the services we provide.
  • Our strategic approach eliminates superfluous expenses and hidden costs that often inflate prices without adding real value to the customer. We meticulously design each of our packages to offer unique itineraries and the best deals compared to our competitors, thus reflecting our commitment to fair and ethical pricing.
  • Our corporate philosophy is focused on promoting economically sustainable tourism. This means we work to secure more favorable rates for essential services such as accommodation, transportation, train tickets, and access to sites of interest. As leading tour operators in Cusco, we have the advantage of negotiating more favorable rates on behalf of our clients, allowing us to pass those savings directly to them.
  • Beyond the economic aspect, our commitment also extends to our valuable team. All our collaborators receive fair and competitive salaries, reflecting our respect and appreciation for their hard work and dedication. This ethical approach stands in sharp contrast to less transparent practices in the industry, where inflated prices do not always equate to better compensation for employees.
  • In summary, our pricing strategy is not designed to maximize profits at the expense of our clients or employees but to balance accessibility with exceptional service quality, adhering to all standards.
    Furthermore, we are continuously reinvesting in improving our tourism services and enriching our clients’ experiences, ensuring that each journey is memorable and valuable. We appreciate your trust and look forward to the privilege of demonstrating that excellence in service and reasonable prices can, indeed, go hand in hand.

INCA TRAIL vs. SALKANTAY TREK: Understanding the Differences

In the following tables, you will be able to understand the most significant differences between the Inca Trail and the Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu, the two most popular treks in South America.

The Salkantay Trek offers a more economical alternative compared to the Inca Trail. Unlike the latter, where a fee of approximately 100 dollars per person is required to be paid to the Peruvian state, the Salkantay does not require such a payment. Additionally, costs are significantly reduced through the use of horses, which are capable of carrying between 45 and 50 kilos of equipment and food, thus offering a more affordable option. For example, a group of 10 would only need about 5 horses. In contrast, on the Inca Trail, human porters are hired due to the prohibition of horses on that route. These porters can carry a maximum of 20 kilos each, and their services are more expensive; a group of 10 would require 20 porters. These factors contribute to the Inca Trail being considerably more expensive compared to the Salkantay Trek.

SALKANTAY TREK

  • The Salkantay Trek, stretching 75 kilometers, is an adventure that takes you from the heights of the Andes to the lush Peruvian Amazon. This journey introduces you to tranquil glacial lakes, snow-covered mountains, rugged terrain, and tropical forests. As you walk, you’ll discover ancient Inca trails and ruins that enrich your trip with history and culture. A highlight is the opportunity to immerse yourself in the soothing thermal baths of Santa Teresa in Cusco, a well-deserved rest after the day’s challenges.
  • Unlike the Inca Trail, which leads directly to Machu Picchu, the Salkantay Trek ends in Aguas Calientes, the vibrant base town for exploring the famous Inca citadel. Here, travelers often spend the night preparing for their exciting visit to Machu Picchu the following day.
  • The Salkantay Trek is noted for its comfort. It offers unique overnight accommodations, such as glass domes and panoramic cabins, providing a cozier and warmer experience compared to traditional camping tents. Additionally, it’s easier to find shelter in case of bad weather, ensuring a comfortable and safe adventure.
  • In terms of safety and flexibility, the trek excels. Access to emergency services, such as transportation, horseback assistance, or local support, offers peace of mind, especially when compared to more remote routes like the Inca Trail. Economically, the Salkantay Trek is a wise choice due to its lower operational costs and adaptability to various budgets.
  • In summary, the Salkantay Trek is more than a nature walk: it’s a comprehensive experience that combines the majesty of the Peruvian landscape with cultural immersion, comfort, safety, and excellent value for money. It’s an attractive and accessible option for those looking to uncover the secrets of the Andes and the wonder of Machu Picchu.

LEGENDARY INCA TRAIL

  • The Inca Trail is a 45-kilometer path rich with Inca history, featuring ancient staircases, tunnels, and sites like Llactapata and Wiñaywayna, set amidst the Peruvian Amazon and Andes. It offers a unique trek to Machu Picchu from Cusco, providing a spiritual and cultural immersion into the heart of the ancient Inca empire.
  • The Inca Trail uniquely ends directly at Machu Picchu, allowing hikers to experience an epic finish at the ancient citadel. After exploring, travelers descend to Aguas Calientes and return by train to Cusco, completing a journey rich in history and culture.
  • The Inca Trail offers trekking and camping as its main activities, with tent camping as the sole accommodation in this remote, nature-immersed area. It’s a protected sanctuary with strict regulations to preserve its integrity, requiring tour operators and visitors to adhere to specific rules for an authentic and environmentally respectful experience.
  • The Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu and the Inca Trail are strictly regulated for hiker safety. Park rangers are available but have limited immediate response capabilities due to the trail’s remote nature. Tour companies are required to carry emergency supplies, and restrictions apply to helicopter assistance. Hikers should be physically prepared and well-acclimated for a safe, enjoyable experience.
  • In conclusion, the Inca Trail is one of the most renowned treks globally, and undertaking it provides a rich experience that transports you back in time, allowing you to deeply understand the engineering and history of the Inca civilization. If you’re looking to immerse yourself in antiquity and explore the wonderful world of the Inca Trail, this adventure is definitely for you. This route not only challenges you physically but also connects you spiritually with the traditions and legacy of an impressive civilization.

While both treks offer unforgettable experiences, they cater to different preferences and levels of adventure. The Salkantay Trek beckons to the adventurous souls seeking pristine natural beauty and a sense of exploration, while the Inca Trail entices history enthusiasts and those yearning to tread in the footsteps of the Incas. Whether you seek rugged wilderness or cultural immersion, each trail promises a unique and transformative adventure, leaving you with memories to cherish for a lifetime.

Bucket list experience This was an experience of a lifetime! I wouldn’t have done it with any other company. They really look after you and ensure you have the best experience as possible. We were served delicious freshly made traditional Peruvian food everyday and served an array of different hot drinks. Along the way we were welcomed by the amazing views of the Peruvian Andes and Amazon rainforest. Juel was an incredible tour guide, very passionate about his Inca ancestors and about the nature around us.

Great, rewarding experience This tour was a great experience, not only seeing Machu Picchu itself but also beautiful lakes, viewpoints and Inca sites. The food was absolutely incredible and there was more than enough for each of us. Joel was a great guide, very passionate and knowledgable about the Incan empire. I would definitely recommend hiring the walking poles and sleeping bag. The whole experience was very rewarding and Joel made sure the morale of the group was high. The only downside was the return bus company from Hidroelectrica to Cusco. We booked via bus and had to leave Machu Picchu early to catch this bus. The organisers made us wait for over an hour for our bus, which meant we could have had more time at the site.

4-Days Salkantay Trek with superb guide Aurelio I did the 4-days Salkantay Trek with Machu Picchu Reservations together with a friend. Our guide Aurelio was really good and you felt that he completely identifies with the Anden culture! He always made sure that everybody in the group was able to follow. Also he gave us a lot of interesting insights into the Anden culture and nature. In general the organisation of the tour was good (briefing one day ahead of the tour, information flyer etc.). It could have been better, if we would have been better prepared for the rainy weather. Drying wet clothes was challenging in the accommodations which we had.

5 day trek review with Juan Oros (guide) The salkantay trek under the expert guidance of Juan Oros was a life highlight of mine. We completed the hike across 5 days and were blessed with plenty of breaks in the weather given it was wet season. If you're completing the hike in March, do NOT forget a poncho, plastic bags/dry bags, and extra pairs of socks/clothes for when your stuff gets wet (it's very hard to dry stuff after it's wet). Juan was optimistic, knowledgeable, understanding and went out of his way constantly to ensure our experience was a good one. Additionally, he was transparent and gave us options when the conditions affected the normal route. Machu Picchu reservations are accommodating for dietary requirements and provide comfortable accommodation along the hike. All-in-all, some incredible views, plenty of laughing, great and varied hiking, good food, and an incredible guide. Thank you Juan and Machu Picchu Reservations for an unforgettable experience!

Tour Vale Sagrado e Salkantay 2D1N Viajamos a Cusco na segunda semana de março. Reservamos dois passeios com a agência, o tour do Vale Sagrado e o passeio Salkantay de dois dias e uma noite. Na agência fomos atendidos por Jimmy, que foi bastante solícito e respondeu todas as nossas dúvidas. Nos dois passeios ocorreu tudo bem. Eles foram pontuais e seguiram exatamente conforme programado. Gostaria de deixar um elogio especial ao guia Nestor, que nos acompanhou no Tour Salkantay. Nestor foi muito atencioso e respondeu todas as nossas dúvidas, desde o briefing até o retorno a Cusco. Nos ajudou bastante durante nossa estadia no acampamento e na volta. Só temos elogios e agradecimentos, muito obrigado Nestor e todos os funcionários da agência!

Marco’s Muchachos - A Tale of Adventure, Laughter, and Friendship Words cannot even begin to describe the experience Marco provided for myself, my mate from work, and our Aussie, British, and English friends. Aside from the natural beauty of Humantay Lake, rich culture of the Incas, majesty of Salkantay Peak, and, of course, the grandiose beauty of Machu Picchu itself, the experience was truly made unforgettable because of Marco’s guiding service. Incredibly knowledgeable, considerate, and fun, Marco guided us through the 4 day, 3 night trek stopping to elaborate on the fascinating history of the trail and of the Incan people culminating in a well-earned view of the historic ruins themselves. As an avid traveller and hiker, I would strongly recommend THIS particular company with specifically Marco as the leading guide.

ChoquequirWOW I can't recommend this tour enough. Our tour guide Renzo was organised, professional and incredibly intelligent. I felt like I was in safe hands and benefitted so much from his vast local knowledge and prefect English. The food was a great opportunity to try local Peruvian cuisine and as a vegan I was very grateful for the effort our hosts, Renzo and horseman Jon went to to make sure I had delicious meals. The hike was challenging but the constant stunning views made it worthwhile and I felt so accomplished afterwards. Plus Renzon provided us with lots of encouragement and support. Choquequirao itself was like nothing I have ever seen before. We only saw 13 people not in our group there (including the ricket collector). The site is impressive and feels special, especially with everything Renzo told us about it. Having a whole day to explore the site was brilliant as we could take our time ot enjoy and appreciate it rather than rushing off, like others we saw did. It meant we had a lovely lunch there, kindly delivered by Jon, and had the site to ourselves for the afternoon. If you are in Peru you must visit Choquequirao and I strongly recommend ypu use Machu Pichu adventures for the perfectly curated experience.

Incredible Trip! Incredible trip!! Our guide, Bruno, was phenomenal and a crucial part of why our experience was so great. He let us set our own pace and had meeting points each 1-1.5hrs of hiking. He taught us so much about local culture and history and made us appreciate the scenery we were walking through even more. The views are truly stunning. Each camp was comfortable and the meals were great! Tons of food and always felt fueled up for long days. I would recommend Machu Picchu Reservations again! We had nightly briefings about each day of the trek and they ensured we had everything we needed for a safe and enjoyable trek. I have been to Machu Picchu before but going via Salkantay Trek was a far better experience and I would recommend this trek over and over--truly an unforgettable experience!

4 day Salkantay trek with Angel Me and my friend Conor did the 4-day Salkantay trek with our guide Angel. Angel was a fun and attentive guide who taught us a lot about the surrounding area and showed us some breath taking scenery. He always gave us a lot of information about the day ahead, made sure we were comfortable and helped make the trek a really memorable experience. Reaching the 4600m peak of Salkantay was incredible and finally getting to see Machu Pichu were definitely highlights of the journey. Would recommend.

Marco’s Salkantay Tour Marco took us on the 4 day Salkantay Trek. He was so enthusiastic and friendly so it didn’t take long for the whole group to bond very well. Marco was very supportive of all abilities and very knowledgeable. The food and the organisation was incredible and the whole team kept us safe. We loved every second and each challenge was met with a reward of the beautiful views. A highlight of South America
