Emailed the company before the trip and got prompt and detailed replies. However, I asked about the return train times and was provided wrong information, they later gave me the correct schedule. I wanted to trek a part of the Inca Trail but not a regular hiker nor am active, so really glad they have a 2D1N option which I... More

Trekking the Inca Trail is tough - there's no sugar-coating that - which is why it's important that you choose the right tour company. And I'm soooo glad we chose Alpaca Expeditions for our 4 day trek! Firstly, we had the best guides: Jose and Nilton were what kept us going. They were knowledgeable, fun, supportive, encouraging and exactly what... More

The tour itself deserves a 5 out of 5. Good preparation, good guides, good equipment and seriously amazing food. There is one thing that keeps me from giving 5 stars though... The company is probably the most expensive provider there is- one reason for that is that they pay their staff fair wages, allegedly! It turned out that the porters... More

Chris, I am glad that you loved the tour, but I need to respond to the second part of your review because its 100% not true and completely against everything we stand for. Every single person on our team, and most importantly the porters, are paid real wages for them to live on and support their families. We then do... More

Alpaca Expeditions was amazing. The porters are the hardest working people in the world, and they were all fantastic. The trek itself was extremely well organized, and the day before the trek they had an info sessions for us to attend, and meet our guide, (Miguel M) which was extremely helpful. As well, the food was amazing. I would use... More

Excellent four-day 3-night guided tour of the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. The guides really put in the extra effort to make sure the hike was personal and authentic. The porters were incredibly hard-working and very friendly. It was clear that Alpaca valued them and provided them with excellent gear. I can't really explain how cool Peru is in this... More
