No words came out of describe how amazing and how fulfilling the experience this was for my husband and me. We spent 4 incredible days either our guide Freddy, and the chef crew Nazario. Freddy has an enough amount of wisdom of history, culture and tradition and nature… he shares his wisdom with pride, energy and spirituality. I loved everything about it. The chef and his crew were positive and friendly and smiling… they carried our things, and made the most delicious and fulfilling 3-course meals. I can only recommend Inkayni and this particular crew. With all my heart thank you. I truly appreciate this experience.

Amazing experience with a great guide and team. Mario’s food was so good and there was always so much of it. Hard to believe he’s rustled that all up on a camping stove! The porters were also all very helpful and friendly, would recommend. Yo-yo was an amazing guide who kept us laughing the whole way, even when we got drenched in a downpour! He was very knowledgeable, answered all our questions and couldn’t have been more helpful


We are so thankful for this journey, all our expectations were fulfilled and it even went further than that : the views, the incredible work of the porters, the food, the tea parties, the family vibe, the challenge, the climate diversity, the ruins, the spirituality of the journey, the comfy tents, the warm sleeping bags, and way more. Without our guide Paul, this trail wouldn't have been as spiritual, fun and magical. Paul is very knowledgeable, genuine and he wants to make sure everyone is doing well and is enjoying as much as possible. Anyone could feel the energy he brought to the hike and his small stories before bed time will be remembered. One of the best things about Paul was his passion and his belief about the Inka history. He would always make us, not only see the best places, but also feel them through small activities and local insights. Also, Nazario, the chef, was amazing and brought to us the best local dishes, and also brought diversity on the plate. Thank you so much Inkayni! ❤️ Tupa nanches kama. Timothé & Milla


Wow! What an experience. Myself and teenage daughter had a wonderful time. If was a very challenging, but very rewarding experience. Our guide, Ronald Ccana Sotalero, was entertaining and very knowledgeable. His passion for this trek, Machu Picchu, his ancestry and his county are obvious and definitely added to our experience. I would definitely recommend Inkayni tours and especially our guide Ronald.


We had a fantastic time with our guide Herlin and our group of trekkers. Herlin was knowledgeable, friendly, and energetic — telling us many stories about his life and about the various ruins we visited. The trail itself was a challenge both physically and mentally, but it was worth it to experience that feeling of awe and success when, on day four, we got our first glimpse of Machu Picchu. The food on the tour was fantastic — lots of variety even for vegetarians. It was fresh and well-spiced, which was a nice surprise given that we were camping. The extra hike to Waynupicchu was daunting at first but the view made the extra 45 minute push worth it. Inkayni tours was incredibly professional and having Quechua guides and porters (cheskis) made the experience feel more authentic.


Our trip was absolutely spectacular! From the pre-trip meeting, all the way until drop off at our hotel, Inkayani had thought of everything we needed to have an enjoyable experience. They responded promptly to emails, explained everything, provided excellent equipment, and ran on schedule. Our guide, Freddy, was awesome. He shared his expertise and life in engaging ways and made everything so much fun and very meaningful and special. Mario cooked excellent food. Our Chaskis were so kind and strong. We could not recommend this company and our guide more! Go local, go with Inkayani.


Recently returned from a 4 day excursion to Machu Picchu with Inkayni. Had an absolutely incredible time, primarily because of our amazing guide, Freddy Torres ("Papa Freddy"). He regaled us with tales of Inkan history, facts about Peruvian flora and fauna, and helped us appreciate our deep physical and spiritual connection to Pachimama (Mother Earth). Freddy inspired and motivated our group (3 adults, 5 kids ages 11-16), and helped create spectacular memories that we will all hold on to for the rest of our lives. Chef Mario and our team of Chaskis were absolutely wonderful (you won't believe the culinary experience they can create while tent camping!), and the communication with the tour operator leading up to the trip was top-notch. Would absolutely use Inkayni again and would go anywhere with Papa Freddy!


We had a great time, and the entire experience was awesome !! Our group had different dietary restrictions though the chef Mario and team were very accommodating to customize to our needs and feed us very well with a balanced meals and snacks all the days with great care. Our guide Paul Cano was very knowledgeable, he was absolutely amazing with his humorous touch and wonderful stories that made the hike more enjoyable! along with him assistant guide Lishet was very resourceful, courteous, both of them made sure that we all complete the hike without incident, they were there all the time to help us succeed the challenge hike by providing all the needs. In summary entire crew including the numerous porters were awesome by taking care of us by providing shelter, serving 4 course meals all the time and other needs. We had a wonderful time, thanks so much for the Inka Magic!!

This was a spectacular hike w our group of 8. The company was tremendous at communicating details and making sure we had everything we needed. “Papa Freddy” ,our guide, was fabulous and not only made sure we had a tremendous time, but engaged the 5 kids on our adventure in some really thoughtful and unique ways. Papa Freddy and the team of chuskis provided top class service! The team made this “bucket list” adventure something we will never forget!


I had such and amazing experience trekking the Inca trail with Inkayni. The chaskis (porters) were outstanding and provided for us beyond our expectation. The chef, Nazario made delicious and healthy food each day- my gluten free needs were also catered for. His mushroom ceviche was my favourite for sure! Our guide Freddy was 1000/10- I am so grateful to have had him as our guide as he was able to share with us his 20yrs+ experiences and knowledge of the Inca trail. We both learnt and experienced Peruvian culture, history, & spirituality, and the natural beauty of the mountains. There were a total of 4 people doing the trek + our guide, chaskis & chef. A small group was really nice and also allowed us to sleep in that little bit more!!
