Thank you all for making this trip to Cusco and the inca trail a great experience!!
We were pleased with the trek and the care of the guides. Being the senior members of the trek, we did not wish to slow the group, yet we were given assistance when needed. The food was excellent, our guide was most interesting. All in all, a great experience.read more
Highly recommend the Lares Valley Trek/Machu Picchu 3N/4dys with SAS Travel. The historic Hotel Marqueses, was incredibly beautiful, great staff, and very accommodating to trekkers. Our lead guide, Hilbert Sumire made this trip immeasurably better by sharing his vast knowledge and passion for the land, people, history and culture of his upbringing, and went above and beyond to ensure the safety & wellbeing of everyone along the way! He was a joy to travel with, and kept everyone motivated to push through as a team! We began in the Andes Pumahaunca Valley; mules and llamas loaded with supplies towards day one base camp in a serene setting under the Andes moonscape & sound of the rushing waters. Day 2 was the toughest trek to reach the highest point of 4,580 meters. Trekking through the mountain Switchbacks were seemingly difficult, but very possible, with the expert guidance of Hilbert & his top teammate Juan! Reaching the top was rewarding enough, but the trek downhill into the local village where llamas are raised and the land is farmed was a cultural experience that won’t soon be forgotten! Ending Day 2 at a campsite next to pools of beaming hot springs in Lares Village was a welcomed relief for sore muscles! The chef prepares excellent meals throughout the trek, and I was grateful for the “Free Gluten” options which were hearty & delicious!
Day 3 and 4 spent exploring and trekking mountain views of farming terraces & experiencing the vastness of the Inca ruins was remarkable. Machu Picchu City began early on Day 4 & experiencing the sunrise there couldn't have been more breathtaking! The night before we had a good meal @ the hostile which was logistically close the train station in Aguas Calientes. Plenty of open markets for supplies and souvenirs! Thank you to the local guides Hilbert & Juan, as this trip will go down as a lifetime experience of fond memories and much knowledge gained each step of the way! HOLD YOUR LAMAS friends and ENJOY! Thank you!
Hi SAS Travel Team
I am compelled to send you all a thank you note. Everything was PERFECT and made for a once in a lifetime trip. Everything was organized, all rented equipment was perfect, everyone I interacted with (including the hotel) ensured I was happy / satisfied and our guides Hernan and Dayvis kept us informed, safe, and felt like friends. Match that up with the excellent chef, coordinator and porters...there was NOTHING I would want to change.
Thank you for giving me an unforgettable trip!!!

Dear SAS Travel,
My parents, husband, and I just returned from the 9 day/8 night Salkantay trek, with three days of tours beforehand. SAS was great at coordinating everything; the guides and staff were professional and knowledgeable. It was only four of us on the Salkantay trek with Mateo as our guide, Walter as our chef, and Adolfo as our assistant chef. Everyone was wonderful. Prior to becoming a guide, Mateo studied archeology, which contributed to his obvious expertise during our trek. He has a great since of humor, is compassionate, and genuinely enjoys sharing is knowledge with others. Because of a nerve disease, my dad felt fatigue on the second day (the most intense climb), and Mateo held on to him for hours and prevented him from falling. When we come back to Peru, Mateo will be our guide. He’s our friend for life!
As for the food, Walter and Adolfo were magicians in the kitchen! I can’t believe how well we ate the entire time. There were always four or five choices at each meal and they were all delicious. Everything was prepared from local fruits and vegetables and gave us the energy we needed for the trek. Walter and Adolfo had great personalities that made for an enjoyable journey.
SAS did a great job coordinating our stay and selecting skilled people to lead us through the Salkantay trail.

SAS Travel is supporting many of the community projects run by Hotel Marqueses: Eg. "Cusco Hospital Regional Project", "Walk a Mile in my shoes", "Shoes shiners boys" If you are coming to Cusco please make a space for a couple of second hand clothes, shoes especially for kids, school equipment, toys and drop them off in our office. We will help distribute the items to people who really need them in small village schools and communities in the mountains of Lares. The project in the Cusco Regional Hospital is partly play therapy and so larger durable toys (like second hand fisher price items) are lent to the children not as presents but as part of daily therapy activities and are always appreciated. Smaller toy/ gifts are used for children spending Birthdays in Hospital or who have been specifically identified as having a particular need. Medicines such as Rifamacina, are what are gifted for patients particularly in the Burns Unit. Any one bringing a donation is welcome to come with us to the hospital to see the project and donate personally. Thank you.
