South America Tour Reviews

5 - Excellent
Based on 1,521 customer reviews
Exceeded my expectatios!
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
  • From USA
“The 4-day 3-night trek was amazing. Completely exceeded my expectations. Pretty sure the chef Walter is a magician, the way he was able to cook full meals (appetizers, main course, sides, all delicious) out of a tent. The porters took care of all of the work involved in camping, it was relaxing. Lucio our guide was intensely knowledgeable, patient, and kind. The trail itself was a lot of fun to hike and see all the sights along the way. I recommend a baseline physical ability, but any active person should have no problem and be able to enjoy the views and experience.”
Inca Trail with Isao & crew was an exceptional experience!
5 - Excellent
  • Alice Armes
  • From Canada
“I just returned from an incredible 4-day trek on the Inca trail with excellent Alpaca hosts. Big thanks to these wonderful people who made it such an amazing experience:

Isao:
Best guide - EVER - make sure to request him! With the perfect balance of professionalism and fun, Isao tailored the journey to suit our particular mix of trekkers. He took special care of each of us, and made sure we all got to maximize whatever part of the trip was most important to us individually – while also creating a warm sense of family and group experience. I can't wait to trek with him again and am already planning my next trip back.

Moises:
Part chef and part magician. I don't know how he was able to serve such lavish and delicious meals on the trail – I was in awe after each one. After reading previous reviews, I had very high expectations and they were exceeded. I loved the soups in particular, and all the dish presentations were delightful!

Juan & Porter Crew:
These people are top-level athletes and world-class hosts. They took care of all the gear and logistics, which allowed us to be carefree and enjoy the beauty of each moment. They broke down our camp each day after we had already set out on the trail – but managed to pass us carrying all our gear and had everything set up again long before we arrived at the next camp. In addition, they offered us so many thoughtful kindnesses throughout the trip; they greeted us with bowls of warm water to wash up with (morning, afternoon and evening). They woke us up with hot tea. They cheered us on as we pushed ourselves up and down the mountain.

All in all, I can't say enough good things about Alpaca and highly recommend them the Inca trail trek! You will have a fantastic time!

Additional thoughts & unsolicited advice:
ALTITUDE: Unless you live at 14,000 feet, absolutely spend 3 days acclimating in Cusco or the Sacred Valley. There is plenty to do and it makes a massive difference.

FITNESS: Think 5+ hours of stair climbing every day of the trek. There can be long stretches of going downstairs - make sure to train for that too. If you have difficulty with your knees or back I'd recommend the 1 or 2-day trek, which Alpaca also offers.

GEAR: You need far less than you think you do. If I did it again, I'd only bring two pairs of wicking quick-dry leggings, and I'd leave the rain pants at home (I was way too hot hiking in them). The rain poncho they give you covers most of you, and I probably would have been fine without my raincoat. Just make sure to bring waterproof gloves - those are small and make a big difference. Instead of long-sleeved shirts, I am a big fan of arm warmers paired with a T-shirt or tank - so you don't have to take off your pack every time you want to add or shed a layer.

BUGS: I didn't have a problem with them until we were actually in Machu Picchu - and then I got eaten alive. Make sure to put on the DEET and cover your legs and ankles on the last morning before you set out for the sun gate.

HYDRATION: Alpaca provides purified (filtered/boiled) water for your pack morning, noon and night. You can also buy drinks at various places on the trail (though I never did). I highly advise using a pack with a CamelBack like system. This will increase your water intake and keep you better hydrated because you don't have to stop moving to sip. It's also lighter weight than most bottles.

SNACKS: I was really worried I'd be hungry, so 1/2 my allotted duffel bag weight went to snacks. This was totally unnecessary. Alpaca feeds you VERY VERY WELL! They also give you a few trail snacks - but I was always too full to eat them. (There are also snack options along the trail.)”
Absolutely Amazing Trek With Alpaca
5 - Excellent
  • Albert Dinne
  • From France
“Firstly, I rarely take the time to write reviews. I was extremely impressed by every aspect of my trek with Alpaca, from pre-hike information and briefings to every aspect of the 4day 3night Inca Trail hike. The guide, Rolando, was incredibly knowledgable, flexible, patient, kind, and encouraging. He allowed hikers to go at their own pace, making sure porters were there to keep an eye on those who weren't directly in his site. The meals were enormous and delicious! I'd never done a multi-day trek before and Alpaca definitely spoiled us...waking us up with coca tea, providing us with warm water to wash up, and a tent set up with a table and chairs for meals. The entire staff was excellent. I should note two situations that arose that Alpaca managed perfectly. The first is that I sprained my ankle just 2 weeks before the hike. The staff was quick with their communication and creative with providing alternative experiences to still be able to see Machu Picchu. Luckily, in the end I was still able to do the hike. When the hike was over, we sat down for lunch and were notified that the train personnel was striking so we'd either have to wait until tomorrow to hopefully catch a train then or hike another 2 hours to another town where the Alpaca minivan would have access to pick us up. We were very thankful that we were with such a great reputable company because they provided us with a solution to get back the same day, which other hikers did not have. All in all, I can't say enough positive things about this company. They are really top notch.”

South America - Travel Highlights and Travel Tips

South America is a vibrant continent, whose backbone is the Andes running from north to south with the Amazon river snaking through its northern part. High and low lands combine to create a continent of extremes. The highest waterfall (Angel Falls in Venezuela), the most voluminous river and the largest rainforest (the Amazon rainforest), the longest mountain range (the Andes), the driest place in the world (Atacama Desert in Chile), and even the best carnivals in the world - South America does nothing by halves. Visit South America to see some of the most interesting landscapes in the world, to sample the deliciously varied cuisines and the beautiful and friendly locals. Get ready to live life to the full when you are on a holiday to South America.

Travel Highlights

  • Head to the Peruvian Andes and climb the Inca trail on your way to the lost Inca city of Machu Picchu. It’s easily the most famous archaeological site in South America, and while there are some great alternatives, the Inca Trail is iconic.
  • See the blinding white and blue of Salar de Uyuni, the Bolivian salt flats. An almost dreamlike experience, the salt flats stretch for as far as the eye can see, with the sparkling white salt and cerulean blue sky being completely void of any distractions.
  • Stand in the divine presence of Angel Falls, Venezuela. Almost one kilometer high, the waterfall cascades from a tepui - a table top mountain, called Auyantepui - and is approximately 16 times taller than Niagara Falls.
  • Canoe down the legendary Amazon river, the life source of our planet, and appreciate the interconnectivity of Earth and it’s inhabitants.
  • Get lost in the crowds and gawp at the rainbow coloured floats and the passionate Samba Schools of the Rio de Janeiro Carnival and get ready for a party like you’ve never experienced before.
  • Tango with the best in Buenos Aires.

Travel Tips

  • Brush up on your Spanish, as it’s the official language of most of South America, and a little effort goes a long way with the locals.
  • While much of South America is friendly to tourists, extreme poverty means some areas in large cities are off-limits. Keep your wits about, make smart decisions and you’ll only have great experiences.
  • Much like North America, South America is big on affordable bus journeys. The only difference is the variety of passengers you’re likely to meet - from a live chicken to your new best friend.
  • South America straddles the equator and the tropic of Capricorn, meaning most of the continent experiences a tropical climate. However, temperatures vary on the time of year and be aware that the southern part experiences reversed seasons, so plan your wardrobe carefully.
  • Visit your doctor before you travel and make sure you’re up-to-date on all vaccinations and medications needed for travelling in South America.
  • Eat local, it’s the best way to immerse yourself in the local culture and it’s also usually the cheapest way to get a good meal.
