    I'm really happy with my choice for the Inca Jungle Trail and Inkas Destination. Personally I really like adventurous activities. When I read about the Jungle Inca Trail, where I could go mountain biking, rafiting, ziplining and see Machu Picchu in just 4 days I was convinced.

    It isn’t often that one visits a country as a tourist and leaves with a sense of deep connection to that country. Thanks to Luis and his team for a deeply immersive experience into Peru, it’s people, it’s food, it’s religion, ecology and culture, our family was fortunate to

    Good for people looking for activities to do on the way, but I recommend just taking the Inca trail if you’d just like to hike. The hiking to Machu Picchu with the Inca jungle wasn’t worth it.

    Thanks for your comment, in comparison of tours we can not say which is better tour than another since each tour has its attraction and is made for every expectation of people, many people do not want to walk a lot but if they want to do different activities like bicycle, trekking, rafting and zipline and others just want to walk and for those people the classic Inca trail is done (the spaces are sold many months in advance) and there is also the Salkantay trek, if you like the hike, you should have done a tour of just hiking like the Salkantay. Have a nice trip back home and thanks again for your comment. Thanks, Zeneyda
