Reviews for Cusco: Inca Trail 2-Day Hike to Machu Picchu (2)

  1. Grayson Ball

    We couldn’t book the 4 inca trail and Milton suggested us to take the 2 day one and I’m glad we did. Had an amazing hike and we got to see Machu Picchu for the first time through the Sun Gate, our guide was also wonderful which complete our overall experience with Peru&U. Great Trek!

  2. Audrey Robinson

    I decided to do this scared that the 4 day trail would be to demanding for me. I think I saw the highlights of the trek and Machu Picchu by the afternoon on the second day. I’m glad with the choice I did and I would recommend it to anyone.
