Trilha Inca clássica, ótima experiência!! Tivemos uma excelente experiência nestes quatros dias de Trilha Inca clássica. A agência nos deu grande suporte, desde quando ainda estávamos no Brasil, sempre disponíveis e tirando todas as nossas dúvidas. Destaco aqui o Abel, muito cordial e atencioso. Nosso guia, o Carlinhos foi simplesmente excelente. Foi um grande incentivador, muito paciente e solícito. Sensível para cada detalhe do caminho: a história, os animais com os quais cruzávamos, as plantas. Sempre explicando cada detalhe pacientemente. Nos trechos mais difíceis nos ajudou, nos incentivou. Carlinhos foi uma pessoa muito especial nestes quatro dias. Ótimo guia. Destaco também toda a equipe envolvida com o carregamento dos equipamentos e também o nosso Chef, o Juan. Nos alimentamos muito bem nesses quatro dias. Ótima comida. Enfim, tivemos uma ótima experiência. Recomendo a agência “Inca Perú Travel”.

Amazing tourism community project in Urubamba via Inca Peru Travel - not to be missed We booked the most amazing experience with Jhon. A tourism community near to Urubamba. Highly recommended and Jhon was an excellent guide and great company as well. So friendly and so clear in his explanations of the activities. We learned how to make traditional coffee, ground chocolate beans and made some chocolate and even made our local ceramic plates, all with expert local tuition. The whole day was topped off with a delicious lunch made by members of the local community. Highly recommended local experience made perfect by inca peru travel.
Una agencia de turismo con personal excepcional Tomamos el tour para conocer Machu Picchu con Inca Perú Travel. Desde días antes Abel se comunicó con nosotros para realizar las coordinaciones del tour que habíamos contratado. En todo momento nos sentimos acompañados y bien asesorados por él y todo el personal de la agencia. Incluso al presentarse un retraso de más de una hora en el tren de ida a Machu Picchu Pueblo. Asumieron todas nuestras preocupaciones como propias, liberándonos de ellas.

Incrivel Ótima agência, fizemos um pacote com agência do Brasil em parceria com a Inca, foram ótimos, super atenciosos, solícitos, nos auxiliaram em tudo e garantiram que todos os passeios dessem certo e tivéssemos os melhores momentos nesse destino fantástico.
Trilha Inca Tradicional....experiência que ficará para sempre na memória Fizemos a trilha Inca Tradicional de 4 dias e 3 noites com a Inca Peru Travel em família (2 adultos e 2 adolescentes de 16 e 12 anos). Desde o inicio do contato nos deram todas as informações e suporte para essa trilha desafiadora mas ao mesmo tempo magnífica. Estávamos em 4 pessoas e a empresa disponibilizou 6 pessoas (carregadores, cozinheiros, montador de barraca, etc) e o excelente guia José Américo que nos deu uma aula sobre a civilização Inca (fala espanhol ou ingles). A trilha é pesada (são 43km com muita subida e descida) mas devagarinho e com a paciência de toda a equipe da Inca Peru Travel tivemos uma experiência que ficará para sempre na memória. As refeições do cozinheiro estavam deliciosas. O único ponto negativo da trilha são os banheiros dos campings que deveriam ser limpos mais vezes ao dia. Mas isso não tem nada haver com a empresa (já que todas as empresas que fazem a trilha ficam nos mesmos acampamentos) e sim um pedido ao governo peruano que administra a trilha. O turismo do Peru é maravilhoso e deve olhar a esses detalhes. Obrigada pela experiencia Inca Peru Travel, Abel e Jose Américo. Amamos
