Amazing experience

A lot of different experiences with hiking, zipline, hotsprings, rafting, coffeemaking and more. Our guide Luis Hermando tried to show us the inka-culture, which was for me the most special thing. The whole experience was a highlight of my whole trip and i highly recommend it to everyone else.

Best Hiking Experience ever!

Fantastic trip with lots of amazing scenery and great fun. Some of these scenery are only possible by taking the hiking trail. If you take the train or road, you probably won’t see so much. The hiking trails are moderate as per the itinerary and the guide was good and experienced and made regular stops to help us get to our destinations.

Luis, our tour guide was the best part of the trip. An Inca man who is knowledgeable and proud to share his vast experiences with us. Great local experience that we couldn’t have otherwise gotten. He made us feel very safe and we had everything we needed at all times.
