    “Fantastic trip! Heather helped arrange a custom 4-day hike of the Inca Trail for me and a friend. The arrangements were excellent. Our guide, Elias, met us at our hotel in Cusco the evening before departure. All our questions about logistics and what to expect were answered. Elias was very knowledgeable. All along the trail we learned about pre-Incan and Incan society and culture. From our porters, and Mario (our cook -- he even made and frosted a cake for desert our last night), to the food and the arrangements, everything had been well-planned for a great experience. Seeing the clouds and mist clear from Machu Picchu from the Sun Gate was a wonderful experience, and the highlight of the trip.”

    Ancient ruins, snowy mountain peaks, local women in traditional clothes and tall hats - everything was amazing. All hotels bear local flavor. The food has been excellent, the sights amazing, the people lovely. One recommendation: learn at least some Spanish - it would be very helpful.”

The Trail is filled with orchids and birds, sights and senses everywhere, pertinent and immediate, surrounded in earth's wonder. But too it's a personal victory, a sense of elation when you arrive.

    “Being a traveler versus a tourist, I enjoy immersion into the culture and get as close to the real deal as I can. The Adios Adventure Travel pros go above and beyond what you would expect from a regular travel company. Luckily, I booked my trip to Peru through Jacquie. I am a very busy small business owner, I didn't have the time to look up and research, do a cost analysis and so on. I simply told Jacquie at Adios Travel my dates and the country I wanted to visit. Jacquie took it from there and before you knew it I was all set with a full itinerary including stops and locations I never even knew existed.

    While in Peru, Jacquie, Vidal and Hubert made my trip personal, intimate, exciting, informative and relaxing all at once. I instantly felt like I was completely immersed in the culture with all the benefits of home, but not having make decisions or plan a thing. That is what I call a vacation!

    For example, instead of taking you to the "tourist market" (aka tourist trap) to be hounded to buy a souvenirs made in some far away sweat shop they'll take you to the local weaving site. Here you'll talk with, learn from, watch the artists and if you should choose, buy directly from the very same local artisan. This left me feeling happy and satisfied knowing I was giving back to the community.

    What's more, the intimate small groups allow them to be flexible and spontaneous and stopping along the roadside to check out a cool site and grab that picture you may never find anywhere else.

    The accommodations were fabulous and authentic with all the amenities you want and need. Having the knowledgeable and friendly local guides put you right in the heart of the destination. This allows you to get away from the daily grind and puts you in another world, which is exactly why you came in the first place.

    Using Adios Adventure Travel I was able to enjoy the uniqueness of this beautiful country and catch a breather at the same time. Well done Jacquie, Vidal and Hubert! Gracias, for my much needed wonderful, interesting, adventurous and relaxing Vacation!!”

    “My husband and I went on the 7 Day Machu Picchu Walking Vacation offered by Adios Adventure Travel and it was amazing. A lot of thought was put into very detail of the experience - from providing detailed packing lists to offering equipment rental to having a local guide who was passionate about sharing the history of his country. We received wonderful service from the moment we were picked up at the airport to the moment we left Peru.”

    Machu Picchu - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

    A trip to Machu Picchu is a must while visiting Peru. These majestic Incan ruins nestling among the clouds on their high mountain perch is famous all around the world. ‘Rediscovered’ in 1911 by Hiram Bingham, Machu Picchu has still not given up all its secrets and archaeologists are divided over its original signification and use. This mysterious site high in the Andes leaves few visitors unmoved and can be reached via famous trekking routes in Peru like the Inca trail, Salkantay trek and Choquequirao Trek

    Tour Highlights

    • Arrive at Machu Picchu on foot after hiking the four-day Inca Trail.
    • Alternatively, base yourself at Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu Pueblo), arriving after a spectacular train journey through the mountains.
    • Travel up to the ruins in time to catch the sunrise at Machu Picchu.
    • Look out for highlights among the ruins themselves including the Temple of the Sun, the Room of the Three Windows, Intihuatana and the Sun Gate.
    • Climb Huayna Picchu, the peak at the northern end of the ruins, for views of Machu Picchu.

    Travel Tips

    • Visitors to Machu Picchu are limited to 2,500 per day so book ahead to avoid disappointment, especially at the busiest times.
    • Only 400 people are permitted to climb Huayna Picchu per day so you will need to arrive early. This means queuing for the first bus from Aguas Calientes before 4.30am.
    • Follow the vertiginous trail down from Huayna Picchu to see the less-visited Temple of the Moon.
    • If you are unable to obtain a ticket for Huayna Picchu, climb Cerro Picchu to the south instead. You will be rewarded by great views and fewer crowds.
    • If you want to avoid the overcrowded Inca Trail, you can take on the alternative Salkantay Trek which offers views of Machu Picchu from above before arriving at Aguas Calientes for a visit of the ruins the next day.
    • Take insect repellent and be prepared for both sun and rain even in dry season. 

    Machu Picchu has seasonal weather so please do check up on the best time to visit Machu Picchu before planning your tour. If you’re still hunting for more things to do and places to explore in Peru, do check out our Peru Travel Guide for more information.
