Arguably the most iconic trek in the world, The Inca Trail offers fantastic trekking with superb views and a fascinating cultural backdrop. Arriving at the sungate in time to watch the sun rising over Machu Picchu is one of those once in a life time experiences.
Our Inca Trail treks are available on a small group basis with departures every Sundays, Wednesday and Friday between March 1st and Jan 31st subject to permit availability. Our treks include porters (upto 7kg), North Face tents and Therm-a-Rest sleeping pads.
If permits aren't available, don't worry, we rate the Salkantay trek as a superb alternative to the Inca Trail particularly for those looking for more of a challenge. The alternative Lares Valley Trek is more of a moderate trek passing through many small Andean villages offering a fascinating cultural insight. Both treks finish with a day exploring Macchu Picchu, and neither are subject to permits so there are no concerns about availability.
We organise tailor-made itineraries including flights, carefully chosen accommodation and guided tours. Most choose to focus their holiday on Cusco and the Inca Trail, but if time allows, we strongly encourage you to extend your holiday to include a stay at a remote jungle lodge
Our itineraries are displayed with ground prices as flight prices vary dramatically. Expect to add £500 - £1000 per person for International Flights from the UK with BA / Iberia, KLM and LAN plus £200 - £350 per person for domestic flights with AVIANCA or LAN. Please get in touch for a flight quote.
Our itineraries are carefully designed by our experienced travel designers based on years of experience and customer feedback. For a custom itinerary tailored to you, please enquire giving as much detail as possible on your brief.

Wow, we had a brilliant time!! Not sure where to start…
Transport was great, very reassuring to have all that taken care of and all drivers were polite and helpful. Good to know in advance to have some dirham ready for tips.
Treking: Our guide Hassan, muleteer Centim and chef were great. We’d never been guided before and were a little worried about how it would all work out but Hassan went at a pace that worked for us, always made sure we knew where we were going and happy to answer questions but also to give us some space. Food was such a treat! Beautiful locations and we were thoroughly looked after.
Accommodation. Mountain lodge were brilliant. Very cold at night in Imlil so glad to have layers. Staff helpful, food plentiful and delicious. Ouirgane Eco Lodge was a real treat after the mountains. And the riad. Oh my goodness. We loved it! Breakfast on our own terrace, a pool to cool off in. So much space and so beautifully decorated. We couldn’t believe it was ours for the period of time and a great respite from the hustle and bustle of the souks.
The balance of the trek and city was great for us, kids saw all kinds of things in both places that really opened their eyes. Weather was very kind to us so it was an extra treat to have the sunshine.
It definitely felt like a real adventure and something that we’ll always remember as a family.
We had plenty of info from Tourdust and plenty of prompt replies as my queries popped up.

The speed of response, efficiency of the booking process, flexibility/concern and information provided were all excellent. The meet and assist at the airport, punctuality, safety, general knowledge, liaison with customer and the vehicle used was excellent and the knowledge of routes and property locations was very good. Our guide was excellent with interesting knowledge and very good English, we could not have expected any more.
Jetwing Beach - The room was poor and the food Satisfactory. In general the accommodation was good, the service and location were very good and accuracy of profile excellent.
We needed to change rooms due to cockroaches in the bathroom. The staff and management were very helpful but the second room offered also had cockroaches!
Kandy House - The room, food and location were good. In general the accommodation was very good, the service and accuracy of profile was excellent.
Camilla Hills - The room was poor, the food was good. In general the accommodation was excellent with excellent service, location and accuracy of profile.
We were allocated the worst room and had no view. It was very disappointing and ruined our stay. The management we excellent but could not move us to a room with a view.
Cinnamon Wild - The food and service was good. In general the accommodation was very good with very good room and excellent location and accuracy of profile.
The Safari Drives were excellent.
Fort Bazaar - In general the accommodation was very good with very good food and excellent room, service, location and accuracy of profile.
Due to the lack of alcohol served meant we needed to eat outside of the hotel. The lack of a pool needs addressing, otherwise a lovely atmosphere and service.
Interesting and informative visit to Milennium Elephant Foundation.
Visit to Royal Botanical Gardens was a highlight of the tour with an excellent guide.
We were lucky to watch the service at the Temple of the Tooth and advise others to make sure they can do the the same 09:15 or 17:15.
Train journey - we were on the wrong side of the train so the view was limited. Fun journey though. Best part of scenery is after Hatton Station.
Drives on safari were excellent and well organised.
We did not have the tour of the fort as the guide could not accommodate our required timing.
Visit to the Tea Plantations was fascinating but brief.
Samantha S reviewing Cultural Sri Lanka for Families on 25 April 2019
The whole holiday start to finish was just fabulous, the accommodation was perfect and to a certain extent stunning at the Dar Hosnia in Marrakech.
The transport, guides and staff at both locations were wonderful with a special mention to the Douar Samra team in Imlill. They were more than a bit special.
The food at both locations was excellent and the ambience and fun we enjoyed in Douar Samra was beyond all expectations.
We made many new friends whom I am sure we will keep in touch with way beyond this holiday.
You put together a perfect package it was much more than just a great holiday it was a richly rewarding experience.
Just finally to say a big thank you to you for organising one of the best trips we have had.
