About Llama Path
We are the Only Inca Trail Tour Operator that has built a house for the Porters; Porters come to do this job from very far away communities up in the andes and had NO place to stay in in between treks; But NOW, they do have one and is called the LLama Path Porters' house - any one is welcome to visit this place at anytime. We are the ONLY agency in Cusco that takes Porters on vacations; yearly around 50 of them are taken on vacations to different parts of Peru as part of an all inclusive treat they immensely deserve from the 330 hard days of work they do to ensure our foreign clientes tours are enjoyable. In 2018 we will be going on the 4th Inca Trail Porters Vacations, this time we will be going to Trujillo and Chiclayo in the northern coast of Peru. The Porters Vacations is possible ONLY thanks to you who trust in our services provided; as you can see a part of our profits go NOT only to suport the Porters vacations but also to support the children after school project.

From the moment we contacted llama path to inquir about a trek the customer service was outstanding. They customised a package specifically to suit us. With a few extras added on for the last night/day. Me and a friend were their first clients since closing for the covid pandemic. The day before out trek we had a briefing with our guide Gabrielle. We discussed our time line and made sure we had the gear we needed. The next morning we left cusco and made our way to the starting point via a shuttle bus then via train. The first day we hiked through the mountains to Machu Picchu and down to Agua caliente and stayed there the night. The next morning we went via bus back to to Machu Picchu to visit the ruins. Our guide Gabrielle had vast knowledge of the Inca civilisations after a very long career as a park ranger and guide in the area. Every site we visited along the way was explained in great detail. His knowledge of local wildlife and flora was outstanding. This is one of the best guided hikes I have ever experienced. I highly recommend Llama path. I will definitely be using there services again in the future.

I've been putting off writing a review because I don't know that I can put into words just how special our guide Edwin made this experience for us. I can't imagine a more perfect guide. He shared a lot of interesting Inca/Peru history and also lots of funny guide stories. He was also so good at reading our group's needs and sometimes would give us a lead to hike alone and other times would hike right along with us. He knew when a little "picture" or "story" break was needed at tough spots on the hike. He took away the stress of trying to keep a certain pace and made it so relaxing and fun. We enjoyed every moment with Edwin and really think of him as a friend! We took the additional Huayna Picchu hike at the end on our own and got engaged. After we hiked back down, Edwin was the first to know our news and was so sincerely excited for us. It was sad to say good-bye, but we won't forget our new friend. Edwin, you made this trip beyond incredible for us. We are so thankful to have gotten to experience it with you. I must also add that all communication with Llama Path was great and everything went very smoothly. We really liked having the meeting the night before the hike to get to know Edwin and the other hikers and get walked through the plan for the hike. I can't finish this review without mentioning how wonderful and impressive every single meal was and how much we enjoyed interacting with the porters. What a memorable trip. Thank you all so, so much! We made the right decision picking your company!

We travelled with Llama Path for the Classic Inca Trail Group Service 4D/3N over New Years 2019/20. We were very happy with our choice of company as the whole trip was amazing. Although this trail is expensive we really feel we got our money’s worth and it was clear that the company invest this in the wellbeing of their porters and the equipment used. We saw several other groups where the porters were walking in sandals, with just bags on their backs, whilst Llama Path provides proper hiking shoes, backpacks and also makes sure the community benefits from the profits of the company. We received a proper briefing before departure and felt prepared for the trip beforehand. My partner and I and decided not too use a porter, but instead shared a backpack of 55litres which was no problem, but Llama Path provide the options of a half porter or a full porter. Our guide, Russel, was very helpful with everything we had questions about and explained in detail all the sights we passed and the history of the Inca civilisation and of the local villages we passed. Our chef, Cesar, made us amazing vegan food without any problem! We received snacks and a three course meal for lunch and dinner. They also cater to other dietary needs. Overall, an amazing experience and we would highly recommend going with Llama Path!

This review is long overdue! Myself, my fiancee, and eight of our friends did the four-day Inca Trail Hike to Machu Picchu in May of 2018. From the moment we arrived in Cusco, Llama Path was fantastic in their planning and execution of our whole trip, from meeting in Cusco the day before our trip to learn more about what our journey was going to be, to the last day where we arrived at the wondrous and breath-taking Machu Picchu. Our guides Roger and Hector were very informative, professional, encouraging, comforting, and also not to mention, hilarious. The porters and gourmet cooks were also phenomenal. If you're planning on taking any sort of trip to Machu Picchu, don't look anywhere else, book it through Llama Path!

We booked the Salkantay Trek in November and Llama Path was fantastic in helping us make a few decisions to make our experience even better. Travel was cancelled due to Covid-19 and they were great in laying out our options including processing our refund. We will get to Cusco, and WE WILL book again with Llama Path.
