Travelled with my partner who is a vegetarian. Exodus confirmed the airline were aware for the meals. The airline at check in at Heathrow confirmed vegetarian meals had been booked. Unfortunately nobody told the crew on the plane (Tam airlines) 12 hour flight with no food. They were apologetic and said they would report it to management. The flight from São Paulo to Lima was 5 hours. Once again no vegetarian option. The plane crew were very apologetic and said they would report it to management!!! On the return journey from Lima to Sao Paulo the same again no vegetarian option. However on the main flight back to London order was restored. The cooks on the trek were excellent and provided great and varied food for all Trekkers. The porters were very friendly and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. There are no shower facilities until the trek is finished and the toilet is a 20 Litre drum with a toilet seat. On previous treks there has been a proper chemical toilet which hides the waste. Upon getting back to the hotel in Cusco there was no hot water in the hotel which was very disappointing after not being able to shower for Four days. They said there had been a demand by clients on the hot water!!! This is the third trek I have done with the other two being Everest and Kilimanjaro, this trek is up there with both of them in degree of difficulty and reward. I would love to do it again.

Run out of Superlatives - Fantastic - what else can I say!

This was the first time we've been on an Adventure holiday and the first time that we've ever used Exodus. Superb communication and assistance from Exodus HQ throughout, from booking to arriving home. The customer service and assistance we've received from this company is genuinely the best I've ever experienced, even when flights home went slightly awry due to bad weather! The trip itself exceeded all our expectations - by a long way! As first-time 'Adventure Travelers', we were a little apprehensive about what we might have signed up to, but the user reviews on the website and the patience of Harriet at Exodus in answering some rather inane questions quickly put these to rest. Don't just think about it, do it, you won't regret it! Yes, you could fly to Cusco and get the train up to Machu Picchu, but you won't truly appreciate this amazing place unless you've walked the trail and understand just how remote it would have been back in the day together with why the Incas thought of it a such a special place. You would also miss out on many other stunning ruins that cannot be reached any other way, incredible wildlife, the physical challenge and the chance to be humbled by the amazingly quiet, resilient and proud Quechua people, many of whom make up the porters and crew that care for you on your trip and make your dreams come true. Machu Picchu is a very special place, Cusco is charming and the Peruvian countryside stunning, but the most precious thing that my wife and I have taken away from our trip is a sense of profound respect and fondness for the Peruvian people and the Quechua in particular.

I travelled the first time as a female solo traveller (at 49yrs!) and felt well supported and informed from the point of enquiry to completion of my holiday.

Wonderful trip, it's hard going (especially Day 2) but worth the effort! We were with a great group and we all got on so well immediately. Wonderful encouragement along the trek for each other. Tour leader was brilliant. Accommodation in Cuzco was very good, the camping experience not to be missed, tents were fine, porters amazing guys, the food fantastic, wonderful scenery on the trek. Kept having to pinch myself that I was actually on the Inca Trail!!

Excellent Adventure challenging at times

5
A fantastic Experience made all the better by the Group who bonded straight away, I have completed the EBC Trek and the Annapurna Circuit as well but did find this Trek Challenging at times even though it is classed as moderate so the fitter you are the better it will be but we did have members of the group with little Trekking experience who made it but did struggle on all the Trek especially on day 2 but they made it with the support of the Guides Wilfrado and Bruce.

Classic Inka Trail

The Inka Trail is a lovely trek. Beautiful and varied scenery throughout, with the added bonus of seeing Machu Pichu at the end. Cusco is beautiful and the people were lovely. A very enjoyable trip.

The whole customer experience, from booking your trip, to the flight, and the holiday itself is very important to us. We appreciate your comments regarding the group flights and are considering alternative options for next year, whilst maintaining our competitive Inca Trail package prices.
