Intrepid Machu Picchu reviews

One of the world’s most popular archaeological sites and the destination for many travellers each year, Peru’s famous Machu Picchu is a bucket-list item for adventurers around the globe.

A trip to Machu Picchu may just take your breath away (from both the altitude and the views). This ancient site remained hidden from the outside world until its discovery in the twentieth century. Today, it's known to be well worth the physical challenge it takes to get there.

Inca Trail Express

Selina · Traveled June 2024
Well organised and fun trip, bucket list experience. Carmen was an excellent group leader. Encouraging and engaging with excellent knowledge of Incan history. The porters and chefs are also all incredible, bring enough cash to tip generously because they deserve it! (We each paid 200 soles to split between them) Be aware that if you rent a sleeping bag this is 2kg and is included in the 5kg weight limit for the porters. I recommend packing your day pack as light as possible as this will hinder you with the higher ascents during the trek. One roll of toilet paper should be enough. TP is provided at camp and you only really need it during the toilet stops during the hike (I had two rolls and this was too many, took up too much space in my bag). Expect to be off grid for most of the hike (even providers that said they covered the whole trail didn’t). Be prepared for a tough hike, especially days 2 and 3. Prep with a stair master and work on your general fitness before arrival. Also recommend bringing Diamox as you don’t want any altitude sickness to affect your trip.

Had a wonderful experience on my first group trip through Intrepid. Group leaders were very knowledgeable and dedicated to sharing about the history and culture of the communities we visited.

What an incredible experience. This whole trip from start to finish was organized, informative and allowed me to see Peru through the lens of locals. William, our main travel guide was an added bonus. Another perk to this experience, is meeting other travel nomads from around the world that get to share the same experience with you. I look forward to booking more trips with Intrepid in the future.

Book this trip now. You don't know what you're missing until you've experienced Peru with Intrepid. This country, its people, its food, and its love for the natural world are heartwarming and inspiring.

This tour beyond exceeded my expectations: the food, culture, history, and Inca Trail trek made for a diverse and incredible experience. Our guide was amazing and was so knowledgeable and motivating during the trek. The food and camping facilities were beyond incredible: everything was set up for us and the meals were delicious, varied, and always on time.
