I'm planning to hike Machu Picchu this summer and we are looking for the best company to trek with. We've heard good things about Llama Paths, Pachamama Explorers, and Adina Adventures. Any pros or cons for these companies or recommendations for others?
When we went in 2007 we went with a company called Peru Treks
. They were excellent! But I have no experience with any others. They treated their porters and guides exceptionally well and we had a great time.
I have traveled to Peru on three separate occasions, all booked through Adios Adventure Travels. Vidal Jaquehua was our personal guide and his attention to every detail and our comfort made our trip seem like we were visiting an old friend. I cannot say enough about Vidal and I highly recommend him to you.
Second Peru Treks we did the trail in 2008 and enjoyed every moment with this company and their brilliant guides. As Michael & Faye say they treat their porters with upmost respect, try to make this a deciding factor in your choice as many do not take such good care of these incredible guys.
I also went with Peru Treks, and had a great time. I chose them partly because they seemed to treat their porters better than other companies. The process of reserving and confirming my place was very easy and everything on their side was well organised.
Admittedly that trip was in 2006, but it's great to see that they seem to have maintained their standard of service!
I recommend Paseos Peru, good services, good guides, good rates. Check their web www.paseosperu.com
I took a tour with www.liveperu.pe, it was so good.
I went with LlamaPath and they were great. the food was also absolutely amazing and the porters did an awesome job. i think they might be a little bit more pricy than other mobs but definately worth it!!

Last November we did the 2-day Short Inca Trail hike and then the 5-day Salkantay Trail hike with Pachamama Explorers (www.pmexplorers.com), and we were most impressed with the company. It was just the 2 of us (we got lucky) for the 2-day hike with our guide Jimmy, and for the 5-day hike we paid a small premium to make it a "private" hike with our guide Frank, Locario the cook, and Jose the horseman. We also booked the Cusco City and the Sacred Valley tours, as well as great accommodations at the Los Andenes al Cielo Hotel (www.andenesalcielo.com) through Pachamama. Deborah Phillip and her staff at Pachamama Explorers were a pleasure to work with, and we consider ourselves lucky to have been able to hike with Jimmy and Frank.
I used Dos Manos for several of my excursions in both Peru & Argentina, including the Inca Trail (friggin amazing!!). Ayway Id definitely recommend them - my trip was hassle free and I met some really good people in my group. Enjoy!

In response to: Msg #128769
"The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is one of the most famous treks in Peru. There are several tours from 1 to 5 days, however the most requested trek is the traditional 4-day trek. Each year the government of Peru has 500 spaces that normally run out for May, June and July. If you want to do the Inca Trail for those dates you must anticipate the reservation at least 6 months in advance.
The tour of 2 or one day is also almost always available
I recommend, if you will not have time <snip>
Greetings from Peru
