Inca Trail with SAS
I´ve been travelling for 3 months in Peru and Ecuador- Carlos is the best guide, he is professional yet caring for his "family". His passion for the Incan history and culture made the trek more enjoyable, he took care to spend equal time chatting with and getting to know our group. Fantastic

I just completed a 4 day Inca Trail trip with SAS and it was an awesome experience and I recommend them to everyone. They are extremely well organized, the food was great and they treated the porters with outmust respect.
Our guides Ruben Andrade and Raul were great guides. They made the trip an truly unique experience. They were knowledgeable, fun, and a pleasure to get to know.
We had many people asking us who we booked through because they saw how great the trip was run compared to their tours. Highly recommended.

We trekked the Inca Trail in January 2009 and we enjoyed it a lot. Wonderful experience! Our guides, Paul and Hugo were great, the food was fantastic and so was equipment. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. I strongly recommend SAS to anyone, very good agency, excellent service.read more

Virgilio was an amazing guide. Because of his leadership, enthusiasm, patience and knowledge, the food and camping equipment were both fantastic.
I will recommend SAS to anyone who asks me about our trip.
Thanks for a fantastic experience !!

My twin sister and I took the 4 day tour. We loved it! Everything was seamless and beautiful. We were so well taken care of and felt safe and secure the entire time. All three of our guides were amazing in their own ways and offered something different. They were Saul, Valentin, & Hugo. Oh and the food was gorgeous!read more

Ruben / SAS
Just wanted to thank you for organising an amazing 10 days in Peru. It all went like clockwork from arrival through to leaving. The highlight of course was the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu admirably led by Justino and Enrique. I can safely say that was four of the best days of my life so far. I was intrigued by the revelation that 5 Inca cities have been discovered in the last 8 years and I look forward to returning to explore those in the years to come.
Thanks SAS once again

I was on the DA Inca Tail 11-18 Oct 08, I just wanted to say how very grateful I am to all of your team for making my childhood dream come true to trek MP in my 50th year. It was the most wonderful and rewarding experience of my life. Thankyou Freddie & Willie your knowledge of the Incas was fascinating. A special thank you to dear Dalmiro, Washington, Rodney, Caesar, Osca & Amilko for your tremendous support.
Love you lots. Big hugs to you all. Melanie X

I was on the Lares Trek in Oct/Nov 2008 - 18 of us in total on the trek all raising money for our various charities. Had a brilliant time, Jose, Oscar and the porters were all fantastic. Couldn't have asked for a better experience - would definitely recommend SAS to anyone thinking of visiting Peru!

We took a 4 day trek with you earlier this year and we felt compelled to write.
We are travelling around S.America and have since taken part in many other
tours with various companies. It only occured to us following these
experiences, just how good Freddy our tour guide was. Not only was he a
great laugh through-out, he was encouraging, professional, always greeted us
at the top of each stretch to shake our hands and congratulate us and we had
an older chap in our group, who was never pressured to speed up. Not to
mention the benefit of his English.
Other people we have spoken to since, regarding their experience at Machu
Picchu don´t seem to compare to ours. So thanks very much to the company
but especially to Freddy.

I am writing to say thank you deeply for a fantastic
Inca Trail trip! SAS exceeded my expectations in many
ways, and I really enjoyed the challenging and
I want to especially acknowledge our group's guide,
Javier. We were on the trail from Sept 3-7, and
Javier was a large part of why our group enjoyed it so
much. He is patient, intelligent and full of
knowledge, humorous and kind. Please do give a note to
him acknowledging his exceptional service. He really

Subject: Re: Inca Trail recommendation
I can tell you without a doubt that SAS did an incredible job for my daughters and me, and I couldn't possibly recommend a travel company any higher than I could SAS. They were extremely professional, their guides were wonderful, their equipment and their food were excellent. They were well organized, and security was excellent.
I made my post because I kept reading these bullshit posts from who knows who, and I wanted to set the record straight. While we were there I asked the guides about the treatment of the porters, and from what they said, and from what I saw, I know that they are treated very well.
I hope you trek the Inca Trail, and I really hope that you will go with SAS. You won't be disappointed. If you have any questions or would like to contact me, please do.

My family and I just returned home from our fabulous Inca Trail Trek and
I wanted to write to let you know how much we enjoyed the vacation. SAS
Travel was excellent - very professional, very accommodating and very
educational. The trek was difficult but fantastic, the porters were
amazing, the food excellent and the hotels were just perfect. This is a
trip we will not forget !!.
I especially wanted to let you know what an outstanding job our guide,
Aldo Sanchez, did with our group. Our group seemed an unusual group -
only 7 people, consisting of two middle age Moms and their young adult
Aldo was absolutely perfect. He was completely professional
at all times, yet managed to educate us, motivate us and provide for our
needs (our sore feet, aching legs and questionable stomachs). Honestly,
Aldo made the trip my most memorable vacation. He is one very good SAS
We have a number of pictures we would like to send to Aldo.
Once again, David - SAS Travel Peru was outstanding. You will be my only
recommendation for any travel in Peru, and beyond.

I was on the Lares Trek in June, and I just want to tell you thank you for that. I had so a good time! I'm thinking very often of this trip - that's the reason why I'm writing now (a little late...). The food was wonderful, the comfort was excellent and especially the guides were great! I was on a trip with Saul Palma, who is the best guide I've ever met. Please tell him about that! I told many friends about this trip and I think, some will come to Cusco next week and ask for the Lares Trek! They want Saul Palma as a guide. Is this possible?
Thank you again!

Our team of 17 trekkers (and 2 Paddington's) have just returned to the UK after trekking the Inca Trail for The Fostering Network. It is fair to say that our achievement would not have been possible without Willy and his team of guides and porters. The knowledge that the guides have brought the trek and the Inca's to life and the amount of equipment that the porters carry made for a very (well, nearly very) comfortable 4 days and 3 nights outside. We also could not have acheived what we did without the expertise from David at Discover Adventure and the 'Doc'.read more

My wife and I (both about 50) did the 4 day Inca trail trek and had one of the best times of our lives. Our guides, Elvis and Isaac, were the best (truly awesome guys!) and the porters made it a pleaurable experience, especially the morning hot tea. Dinner time was always an anticipated event. The scenery was spectacular, and the hikes were twice as challenging as we anticipated. I would not recommend the 4 day trek for those not in shape, but if you can handle the exercise at altitude, it will be the best experience you could get. SAS is highly recommended and we may end up doing a different trek with them in the future.read more
