Inca Trail the best way to get to Machu Pichu
Nov 2021
A very cool experience, something prepared, the attention of Bioandean Expeditions was very good in general, always attentive to everything we needed, everything very well from the moment they picked us up from the airport until the end of the trip. a pleasure to have you with us. Not only did he know a lot, but he also knew his passion for the Inca culture and the road. He was always available to explain us.
The trip is excellent, especially the service, throughout the trip you can see unique landscapes, mountains, high snow-capped mountains, forests, it is wonderful, also in some sections of the route you can see small archaeological centers and perhaps little known ones. .

Best Trekking Ever
Aug 2021 • Family
We just came back from an amazing experience during the Inca Trail to Machupicchu with the team of Local Trekkers Peru, our guide Lobo, our cook Timoteo and our porters were very helpfull. Lobo has a great knowledge of the environment he could explain us a lot about the mountains, the locals and about the Inca culture, we learned a lot with him. We definitely had a good time and enjoyed the wonderful views during this trekking. Lobo really succeed in giving us the best time of our lives. Timoteo cooked the best meals that we tasted during our stay in Cusco, beautifully decorated and plentiful for everyone in the group. We were 6 people in total, all family. We planned this walk in 2019 to do it in 2020 but with the pandemic, all plans changed radically, but fortunately Alberto, the person behind Local Trekkers Peru He gave us the opportunity to change our travel date for this year 2021 even for the entire year 2022, but we decided to do it this year since we saw that things in Peru and especially in the world are improving. Alberto together with the Local Trekkers Peru Team, did a great job
they really deserve a 5 star rating both for the reservation process, the flexibility of changing the date and for the operation throughout the hike. Do not hesitate to contact them you will not regret!!!.

Worth every step!
Sep 2021
We did only the one day hike and it was worth every rigorous step. Be sure to train a little, as even fit folks will find steep stairs challenging. We lucked out and got a cool day; still hot! Gallons of water!

Excellent journey
Sep 2021 • Friends
This trail is daunting but beautiful. Lots of locals along the first day, ruins galore and spectacular views. I highly recommend to anyone interested in hiking. My only cautionary note is that this is a very difficult trail and I would recommend a moderate level of fitness and some advance training

Best hike of my life
Jul 2021
Amazing views almost the entire ~6 mile hike. A great waterfall.
Multiple amazing Inca ruins along the way, culminating in a view over Machu Picchu from the Sun Gate at the end. A bit challenging with stairs/elevation gain and rocky. But overall very doable. You need a guide. There is a 6-mile version and a 26-mile version with camping along the way. Highly recommended

What a day
Oct 2019
Had a great day hike into Machu Picchu. The weather was rainy which actually made it a much better day for the hike. The views were a little obscured somewhat but the clouds move around pretty fast so there is always a good vantage point.
The best part of the walk was when you get to the Sun Gate and see the view of the ruins in the distance. Along the way the Lamas get up close and personal with you.
Be sure to take enough water with you and lunch or snacks, you will need them as you stop and enjoy the views!!

Lifetime journey
May 2019 • Couples
May 19th, 2019, an unforgettable day when I got my feet on long dreamed Inca Trail. Our tour guide Andrew and his team provided our group of 4 a wonderful support, we are still grateful these days. We chose 2d1n trip since our group needed to consider conservatively because of our ages and strength. It's a challenging day, also the day that my dream came true, with no doubt it's the highlight of my adulthood life.

We got up and left hotel about 5am, got to Ollantaytambo station about 6, got off the train at famous KM104 where our journey started, we had simple but nutritious breakfast prepared by alpaca expedition team, then we went on our journey. There are few old Inca ruins on the way, Andrew stopped us and had brief lectures or introductions, we were tested at the end about inca culture if you were caught not paying attention;) we reached Intipunku at 4:00pm, reached top of Machupicchu at 5:00pm, almost missed sunset. I am thinking to do it again sometime later for 4d3n trip.
