Trip of a Lifetime This was the best trip I've ever been on. Unbelievable sights for all 5 days and so many amazing people to meet. The company took great care of us during our 5 days and 4 nights of trekking. The chefs were incredible and made great food for each meal of the day, I was really impressed! The hike itself was not too difficult. The altitude of course makes it difficult on breathing, but terrain was quite easy. There were a few spots that were extremely rocky and easy to sprain an ankle. Our tool guide, Juel, was incredible and really made our trip. He was so knowledgeable about the Inca's history and was very interesting to learn from. He would let everyone go at their own pace, always making sure everyone was okay and safe. I cannot stress the impact that he made on our trip. I would highly recommend Juel to anyone who wants the best possible experience of Salkantay. Andre at the Cusco office is also a great guy, very helpful! Overall, we had an amazing time with Machu Picchu Reservations and would highly highly recommend the tour group!

Amazing trip! The 5 day Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu was absolutely amazing. We had great accommodation each night with incredible views of the mountains, and each day was something different (lagoon, mountains, jungle, etc.). A special shout out to our guide, Billy, who was so friendly, passionate and knowledgable, and the chefs, who prepared us 3 incredible meals every single day of the trek. A trip I won’t forget for a while!

The best 5 days What an amazing and rewarding five days with Machu Picchu reservations. My sister and I are vegan and all the food was amazing and plenty of it. The chefs went above and beyond. Aurelio was the best guide, we feel so lucky that we had him for the 5 days. He really made the trip! We had a great group of people who were so supportive and encouraging. Despite it being challenging at times we laughed so much!

Amazing experience Had great time at Salkantay Trekking and Machu Picchu for 5 days. Steven was excellent guide. He indulged us in inka culture, had supported so well in altitude sickness and intense hike. He took fabulous pictures and supported our vegetarian food need. Overall it was great fun with making new friends and memories. Highly recommend if you want intense hiking experience at Salkantay.

Best andventure ever! This was honestly the best experience of my life. I had 5 days of adventure, stunning views and great company. It was sad that the time flew by as every day was such a blast! Machu Picchu Reservations is a great company to choose for the Salkantay Trek. They were very organized, food was delicious, sleeping arrangement was excellent and the guides create a supportive and amazing vibe! Aurelio was the best guide and it was bittersweet to say goodbye after such a great experience. I would highly recommend Machu Picchu Reservations and above all Aurelio as your guide!
