Dear Robinzon, Thank you for our fantastic personalized trip to Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu! We enjoyed every minute! It was a great honor to be invited to your family's home and have a great lunch. The soup was super rich as well as the guinea pig, the corn, the cheese and the potatoes? We enjoyed his detailed explanations about the history of the Incas, about Peru and its people, traditions and way of life. The trip from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes and back on the scenic train was one of the most beautiful train rides of our lives. Machu Picchu is an indescribable experience, thank you for taking us there with the first bus so that for the first hour or so we had the feeling of being (almost) alone in this magical place. And how lucky we were that the sun came out! Thank you also for choosing such good restaurants, the food was fantastic. In short: thumbs up, THANK YOU VERY MUCH! Can we recommend your services?

Wow. I really could not have asked for a better guide than Robinson for the Inca Trail Trek (4 days, 3 nights) to Machu Picchu. He and his team made this journey so positive and really one of the best experiences of my life. Along the way, Robin was attentive to everyone in the group and cultivated an environment that made us become so close very quickly and feel like family. I was admittedly a bit nervous to embark on the journey solo. From the moment I met Robinson during the briefing session the night before we left, he made me feel so comfortable and eliminated any concerns that I had. I could not believe the operation overall — between the amazing porters carrying all our supplies for the 4 day trek and the chef who made some of the most amazing food I had during all my time in Peru — I didn’t know it could be possible to be so comfortable during a trek like this. The porters made sure that food was ready and camp was set up once we arrived back every night, and that we had fresh water in the morning before getting back on the trail each day. One day it rained and got a bit cold on the trail. Robinson offered coffee and I thought he was joking. He then proceeded to pull out a portable coffee maker from his bag, and THEN a bit later a porter ran up from camp and brought us tea. These guys made the impossible possible. This trek was a life-changing experience for me, thanks to Robinson and his team. I cannot say enough good things about them and could not recommend them enough. They are the best in the game !!!

We chose the Lares Trek an we could not have been more pleased!! Our guide- Adrian- made this adventure exceptional. As it was just two of us ladies- he ensured we had all the necessities and breaks!! We had so much hiking and history- as Adrian taught us so many interesting facts about the Inca culture. As we are both vegan - Adrian ensured all meals, snacks, and beverages met our dietary needs! This was indeed a trip of a lifetime and could not have happened without our exceptional guide !! Thank you AltitudeXperience and muchos gracias Adrian!!!
