Travellers Comments

Definitely INCA EXPLORERS is a very professional outfitter that did more than necessary to make our excursion amazing. I will definitely recommend Inca Explorers to whoever shows interest in Cusco and Inca Trail to Machupicchu. I recommend that you develop a webpage so future clients can see pictures of the trial it would be a great additional service.
