We loved this trip, the physical nature of it, the camping, followed by the 5 star hotel, the Inca sites and Machu Picchu, our guide and porters and the other 7 clients we met on this trip. It all exceeded our expectations.
Pascale M., Inca Trail To Machu Picchu
We were blown away by the accommodations in the mountain lodges—a far cry from camping!
— Louise V., South Casco, ME Machu Picchu Lodge to Lodge
This is the best trip I have done so far. I really loved the scenery, the rigors of the hikes, and the peace of being away from crowds.
— Maeve O., Walnut Creek, CA Cordillera Huayhuash
I think this was one of the best hiking trips I have ever taken. I loved the guides, staff, itinerary, food, and the MOUNTAINS! The scenery and weather were spectacular. This was my first trip with Wilderness Travel and I think every aspect of it was well designed and planned out, in every detail.
— Scott R., Woodstock, VT Trekking in the Cordillera Blanca
Met my hopes and then some. It was an "experience" --more than a vacation. We learned a tremendous amount about the culture, Inca history and, of course, the country is beautiful and people are so very nice!
— Melanie W., Hiker’s Journey to Machu Picchu
The trip was magical and met or exceeded every expectation that we had as experienced travelers. It was one of those experiences that leave you incapable of selecting the best day or best experience. Every day was unique and full of wonder and amazement.
— Steve A., Hiker’s Journey to Machu Picchu
This is a trip of a lifetime. It is so wonderful to see and imagine the Inca Empire. This is a trip with a mixture of explorations in the city, towns and hiking in the wilderness to wonder the accomplishments of the Incas. Would recommend this trip to others. Also the picnics, porters and food was great. Being able to stay at the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge was priceless. This was one of the reasons I picked this trip over other companies that offer this trip.
— Wanda T., Hiker’s Journey to Machu Picchu
This was a trip of a lifetime for my husband and me. We were celebrating our 10th anniversary and wanted something special and memorable. This trip surpassed all our dreams. We have both traveled for much of our lives, but never experienced something like this. It was amazing to truly be off the grid, in the middle of nowhere - and in the middle of tremendous beauty. I can't say enough how much we loved it. Everything was superb - the guides, the camping sites, the organization, the porters, the FOOD (better than any restaurant)! Thank you.
— Margot M., Inca Trail To Machu Picchu
The strengths of our experience with WT were: the itinerary and how it was executed, our guides, and the flawless facilitation provided by WT's local agents. Travel is ALL about attention to detail, and the in-country team was flawless.
— Robert B., Peru Private Journey
I can’t give enough wonderful feedback! Our Trip Leader did a superlative job of helping to balance challenge with wonderment. The rest of the team on the trail were warm, professional, and kind. The food was terrific!
— Faithi B., Potomac, MD Inca Trail Private Journey
I would definitely work with Wilderness Travel again for future trips. The hotels and restaurant ideas were always spot on and a great fit. The mix of hiking, visiting a local market, the shop to see the making of alpaca items, and seeing the culture of Peru was fantastic. Mariela was such a terrific match for us! The drivers were always very courteous and friendly. We felt really taken care of on this trip. When one of my daughters said "where else does Wilderness Travel go?" towards the end of the trip, I knew is was a success! Thanks for making this a special trip for our family.
