Overall a good service and trip
Aug 2019 • Couples
Good fun on this tour. It was an incredible journey. A nuisance was the the fact they didn’t mention anything about the expected tip for porters until the day before. It was quite a substantial amount that we hadn’t planned for. Either build that in your price or state it clearly on the advertisement. They seriously need to pay the porters more than just minimum wage instead of relying on tips from customers.

The food was amazing, really good flavour and variety. Beautiful sites and scenery along the way.

Dear Peter, thank you for your commentary. We are happy to know that you had good fun during your inca trail to Machupicchu with the company of our guide and all our staff. Regarding the tipping, we will have more care in this point, usually the guide inform about it in the briefing. We hope you come back soon. Kind regards, INAKYNI PERU TOURS.

Private Tour to Cusco, Sacray Valley, Machu Picchu and Puno
We booked a small group tour with Inkayni Peru but end up with private tour. In general, the tour was good. There was a miscommunication between Inkayni and the hotel causing no one pick us from Aguas Calientes train station. The itineary was too loose because most of the day tours only last about 7 hours. Since we had plenty of time during our transportation, Will should provide us with more general information about the places we visiting. However, Will was friendly, helpful, passionate and punctual. Will was knowledgeable about Inca culture and history. The accommodations in the package were good and situated in convenient locations. We were lucky to have beautiful weather (sunny but not too hot/cold) during our 8 days stay in Cusco, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Puno.

THESE GUYS ARE THE BEST!
So much love for Inkayni! We had an amazing guide named Herlin who we now call a friend. He was so helpful, so knowledgeable and cares about his culture so much, always happy to share with our group. We had four people in our group and 9 chaskis who were the best bunch of guys ever. Food was great, tents were great, the Inka trail is phenomenal. Inkayni were really helpful when we were booking and sleeping bags, hiking poles were fab. Hotel we stayed in prior to hike was lovely and we could keep our big packs there whilst we were on the hike.

Would highly recommend this tour and my recommendation would be to get to know the guide/s and chaskis however possible because they’re the kindest, hardest working people.

Excellent tour.!!!
Where do I start... One of my long awaited trips to Machu Picchu finally became possible. Thanks to Inkayni Peru tours. Very co-ordinated with pick ups/ drop offs and hotel accommodations .
Paul is such an awesome person and best tour guide you could ask for. Very knowledgable about the history and proud of his civilisation. You can see how he loves talking about everthing related to Incas and makes your interested in their part of the world. The hike itself could have not been possible for me if Paul and the whole crew were not there. Pushing you through difficult moments, specially going upto Wami Wanusqa pass, motivating you to take one more step and you realise you are actually very close. The porters and chef carrying your stuff and cooking amazing meals for you 3 times a day, its just amazing how this all is so well organised and you dont feel stressed about anything.
Would highly recommend this tour company if visiting Cusco or doing any of the hikes for Machu Picchu. You will sure be in good hands and well taken care of.

Goodluck to all.

Inka trek
We had a great time on the trail with our 22 year old university grad. A present for her. Hike was tough but thrilling. Everything was well thought out. Chef was amazing. Guide was great. A really rewarding experience. Highly recommend this group.

Truely magical trip with a truely caring company
Nov 2017 • Friends
I realised the Inca Trail is not just a walk it's a potential life changing experience .. But the company you choose to take to take you on this journey makes ALL the difference. I met many people afterwards whose trek was not magical and I can only put it down to their company using a formula approach to 'get the job done'.
Not so for Inkayni. They ebb and flow with the needs of their customers to create an experience that is unique in every way.
It's not possible to put into words how wonderful Inkayni really is... What they do to bring the Inca tradition to life but I'll try.
From start to finish I received first class service and support. All pre and post trip communications were prompt and all arrangements were made to the tee which left nothing to chance during the trip. Actually due to no fault of Inkayni my girlfriend became sick leading up to the trek and the day before she decided to pull out so Edwin and Alex in the office jumped straight onto re-organising another holiday for her that was cost effective and a perfect alternative for her.
I went ahead with my 4 day trek as planned and as it turned out I was the only Trekker in my 'group'. Probably because the time of the year being low season as I was told it's quite rare to have a 'private tour' so this was a true privilege.
I was totally looked after by my team and new family. Justin the chef was a magician ... I was fed the most unbelievable nourishing meals and provided perfect hot beverages to help my recovery each day .. Even at 3am one night when I had a few tummy niggles. The porters (Mario, Francisco and Bernardino .. Sorry for the poor spelling) were always happy and wanting to help turn our campsites into a place where we could rest or simply enjoy the peace and beauty of it all. Will my guide has a true gift for his role. He knew instinctively what to say and when to share his wisdoms with me. The saying 'where there is a WILL there is a way' took on a whole new meaning LOL
Overall the entire Inkayni team watched over me and my girlfriend at all times and we felt loved and looked after from start to finish. Please pick this company knowing you will be treated like a VIP because that's what they believe you are.
Thankyou Inkayni From the bottom of my heart xxx
