Incredible Trek! Wonderful landscapes, adventure and exquisite attention. Choquequirao Trek totally recommended. The company is very professional. From the day of the briefing, prior to departure, to the organization of each departure and route, accommodations, food and of course the guide. For us MIGUEL was the key to the Trek! Funny, eloquent, kind, responsible... he took care of each one of us, he made sure that we all went well in the Trek, he woke us up before the departures with a great warm tea, and he gave us the best explanations 10 out of 10 to the service ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Incredible experience in the Peruvian mountain range We did the Salkantay Trek (4 days / 3 nights) and it was an incredible experience. The landscapes are spectacular and reaching Machu Picchu was the best ending. The organisation was perfect, we didn't have to worry about anything, everything was super controlled, the rest of the staff was super and the food was delicious. Special mention to our guide who explained everything in detail and made our trip very enjoyable, always looking out for our enjoyment and safety. We will definitely repeat with Terra Quechua Peru when we return to Cusco for our next adventure. Congratulations to all the staff of this company!

Tour Inca Jungle consigliato Ottimo tour di 3 giorni Inca Jungle. È una buona alternativa al cammino Inca. Esperienza ricca di adrenalina, con bici, rafting, zip line e trekking. Si chiude con visita guidata a machu picchu. Ottima e molto professionale la guida Jerson, che ci ha accompagnato per tutto il tempo.

6 day Lares trek and package tour. This locally owned company was fantastic. Very easy to work with and far exceeded our expectations! Fantastic food on our Lares trek, totally unexpected, and worthy of the finest restaurants anywhere. We had a custom-made cake in the middle of nowhere for my wife’s birthday out of scratch. I’ll Our guide Bernito (author, archeologist, teacher, expedition mountaineer, chef, and guide all in one!) was a true professional, and very well trained. Very fun to be around as well and great conversation. We highly recommend this excellent company. We feel that we got extra information at Machu Picchu with his years of training. We got a private track and tour and that was worth just a few extra dollars. You should definitely consider these good folks. We are from the mountains of Colorado, US, and found this to be an amazing country and people.

Lares trek, short Inca trek Fantastic experience! This is a local company with local insight and guidance. I cannot recommend this company enough. Everything was perfectly arranged. Bernito was excellent! We learned so much about the local culture and Incan history from him. This was an experience that we will carry with us in our daily lives forever.

4 jours de bonheur en pleine nature Nous avons fait ce super Trek en compagnie de Reynaldo. 4 jours de bonheur dans les montagnes péruviennes. Reynaldo est super, très à l’écoute et très attachant. En ce qui concerne la nourriture, on pourrait se croire dans un restaurant gastronomique, même si nous sommes dans un campement en pleine montagne. Merci pour tout

Sacred Valley Tour Connection Machu Picchu 2 Days / 1 Night 2d/1n , not to be missed We had an amazing experience with this company. We chose them because of the many 5 star reviews and we are so glad we did. Edwin was committed to giving us the best experience. We loved that they booked everything for us: train tickets, hotel, entrance fees to Machu Picchu, so we didn't have to worry about anything. We were able to relax and enjoy the breathtaking scenery and rich history. Our group was small (the two of us and other couples), which resulted in a very intimate and personalized experience. There were many other groups at Machu Picchu that had groups of 15-20 people and we were very happy to have such a small group. It was well worth the cost and I would recommend it to others.

Machu Picchu Thank you for a wonderful day tour at Machu Picchu. Jose met us at the main square in Aguas Calientes at 1pm and walked with us up to the bus station to take the half hour journey to the gates of Machu Picchu. It was pouring with rain but we managed to climb up to the observation level and waited until the rain stopped and the wind blew the clouds away and we were able to view the amazing citadel. Being 70 & 80 years young and not the fittest we were worried about how we could make the tour but Jose was extremely patient and helped us along the way. It truly was an amazing experience to be able to walk around such an incredible site. Everything was organized for us, the car from Cusco to Ollyantambo, then the Vista dome train to Aguas Calientes, bus up & entry into Machu Picchu and the return journey back to Cusco. Effortless. I would thoroughly recommend this company to anyone.
