Service Beyond Expectations! Highly recommend!!!
Review of: Short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu - 2 days - Glamping Service
It was the most incredible experience and it would not have been possible without Kenko Adventures. When I first booked my trip to Peru, Machu Picchu was completely sold out. Why travel to Peru and miss out on the highlight of the trip!? I called several tour companies and finally ended on Kenko Adventures and could not have been luckier that I did. All I had to do was tell them what I wanted to see and they made it all happen. Food, shuttles, trains, hotels... everything they coordinated and best part was everything was private services with private shuttles and totally at our own pace.

We were picked up at the airport by Kenko and that night, Elvis (our guide) came to the hotel and explained our entire tour to us and what we needed. Since I was limited on time, I asked to modify my tours so I can see everything I wanted and Kenko made it happen. Our guide picked us up from the Skylodge adventure suites, took us to see the highlights of the sacred valley and then the next day we began our Inca trail hike. I even asked to add the Rainbow Mountain tour last minute and they made it happen! Elvis even recommended to us since we were coming from California and not acclimatized to the elevation, to use horses at Rainbow mountain and that was the best decision! Instead of being passed out on the side of the mountain like so many people, we were able to experience and enjoy Rainbow mountain!

Not only is everything planned so smoothly by their team, the guides and drivers are the sweetest people on the planet. The whole time you could sense how excited they were to share their beautiful country with us which often isn't seen being an American tourist in other countries. Not only did they answer my thousand questions before the trip so promptly and during our tours, they did it all with smiles on their faces. It was like travelling with family and not a guide.

In this experience, I loved the glamping aspect since we were put up in a beautiful hotel after our Inca trail hike which allowed us to shower and be fresh for our next day at Machu Picchu. We also were able to take the Peru rail train which was this train with windows everywhere that allowed us to marvel in the scenery. While others were eating boring snacks on the trail, Kenko made sure to pack us gourmet style boxed lunches from a restaurant that was so delicious.

Also, for the price, this is such a steal. We compared several companies when we got to Cusco and for maybe like $20-$30 extra per person, you get a customized private tour that is all done at your own pace! It was worth every dollar! Unless you like being on a bus full of tourists and annoying people, this is the ideal and perfect way to travel!

I would highly recommended this tour company for anyone looking for private services that exceed expectations at every level. Oh and best part is, the guides are the best photographers so you will for sure go home with some amazing memories!
