Testimonials
Inca Trail

I would like to express my deepest and most sincere gratitude to Sap Adventures for an amazing and unforgettable trek along the Inca Trail. From the first email before our trip until our departure from Cusco, everyone at SAP took excellent care of my mom, my aunt, and me, but I especially want to thank our guides: Braulio and Franklin. We literally would not have made it to Machu Picchu without them.
We knew going into the trek that we would be the slowest of the group, but we were unprepared for the altitude sickness and exhaustion. After the first half hour of hiking, we only saw the rest of the group and Braulio at a few rest stops, meals, and in the evenings. When we did see Braulio, he was a wonderful guide; very knowledgeable, outgoing, friendly, and concerned for our well being. At Machu Picchu especially, he demonstrated an extensive archaeological understanding, and my only regret is that we were not fast enough to spend more time with him and the rest of the group. Franclin stuck with us at the back for the entire trek, and I sincerely believe that it was only his patience, encouragement, and care that got us to Machu Picchu.
Beginning on the first day, my aunt unfortunately had a hard time and struggled with altitude sickness and exhaustion. As would become our trend, darkness fell before we reached camp, and we needed to stop every few feet to take a break. But Franclin, who had been with us all day, kept up his enthusiasm and encouragement. Braulio and several porters, despite having already reached camp and seen to the needs of the rest of the group, returned to us for the last part of the trek to light our path and help us for the rest of the way to camp. Once there, they administered oxygen to my aunt and made sure we were as comfortable as possible.
At the beginning of the second day we were amused to see that we had been assigned our own personal porter, Mario, who quietly shadowed us like a guardian angel for all of the second and third days just in case we needed more help. Despite having to take care of three rather slow hikers, Felipe and Mario never complained. I cannot possibly express my appreciation enough. Felipe treated my mom and aunt as if they were his own much-loved and respected mother and aunt, and helped keep my worry for them at bay by pointing out orchids, describing the Inca ruins, and trying to teach me Quechua.
In addition to Felipe, Braulio, and Mario, the other Sap Adventures porters, cooks, and coordinator all helped make the trip amazing.

Escorted by your experienced tour guide you will have the oportunity to rediscover this fascinating and unique place as Hiram Bingham did in 1911, Machu picchu, the lost city of the Incas, where the last emperors, priests and priestesses took refuge and where the empire survived for 40 years after the arrival of the Spaniards. Secret and mysterious citadel from the time of Pachacutec Inca Yupanqui (IX-Inca`s Dinasty) emperor, his presumed constructor. Then apparently its existence was even well-known only by the authorities and the priests of the Tawantinsuyo “The four lands of the empire”. Machu Picchu prodigy of architecture of aesthetic recklessness and by the magestic and harmony of its forms, by the impeccable organization of its terraces, stairs, buildings, patios, passages that are set up in this nest of condors, surrounded by mountains, between the mountain range and the forest like but the extraordinary constructive feat of the pre-Hispanic man. Other recommended activities:
Climb Huayna Picchu mountain (2,700 m, 90min, steep gradient);
