I want to say Thank You Ruben and the 17 Porters who assisted us on a wonderful journey, the adventures and experience was beyond anything that I had ever imagined, SAS Travel is one of the best ever agencies that I have ever experienced and there is no amount of money that can be paid to the Porters and Ruben of course for the hard work and efforts to meet our every needs, the food, the tents, and anything that I might have left out, "KNOW" that you guys are awesome and thank you for the great memories of wonderful Peru and the Inca Trail.read more

We went on the Inca Trail in late July with SAS and had an absolute fantastic time! The entire agency was very helpful, especially when my boyfriend and I were sick. Who knew that Andean teas could cure altitude sickness? The guide was incredibly resourceful and spoke excellent English. We will use this agency again the next time we hike the Inca Trail. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!read more

Thank you Virgilio, Alex, cooks, and porters from the Sheeler family. I have already recommended SAS to many friends who have asked about our 4 day Inca Trail walk.
For those prospective hikers reading these comments, we live at sea level, and were the two oldest (58 and 60) and two youngest (12 and 16) in our group. Here are my recommendations: 1) be in shape --there's alot of steps, 2) allow some time before the walk in Cusco to aclimate, 3) use a good tour company (like SAS), 4) hire a porter (did I mention that there are alot of steps), and 5) ask for Virgilio.
This hike may be the best in the world.

I went on the Lares trek, scheduled with the SAS travel. I have only good things to to remember about the trip in whole, very well organized, nice new equipment, very good and delicious food in the middle of nowhere, the wake up with the hot tea delived to your tent and warm water to brush your teeth. We had a very knowledgeable guide Roberto. We ran into problems on July 8th 2008, due to strike scheduled by the locals, which caused us to return to Cuzco and discontinue our trip, SAS travel was able to accomodate the needs of everyone in my group and to provide alternative trips for us to visit MachuPichu. The prices SAS travel charges are higher, but you get better service in return. Good work guys. Thank you to Ruben and Robertoread more

My husband and I just returned from the Salkantay trek. It was one of the best experiences we have ever had. My husband has been on several other treks with different companies in different countries and said that SAS was far superior. Our guide Javier was incredible-he was funny, warm, helpful, caring, and genuinely wanted everyone to have a great time. He was also extremely knowledgeable and taught us many things we will never forget. Anyone that treks with Javier is very lucky! We also had amazing food cooked by the incomparable Mario, it was a gourmet feast at every meal! Mauro was another fabulous guide that ensured we were all safe and comfortable as we trekked. And the porters did everything in their power to make this a memorable trip which it absolutely was. I highly recommend SAS travel and hope that others are able to experience the Salkantay trek with this wonderful group of individualsread more

My daughter and I returned last week from the classic four day inca trek. Let me say a big Thank You! to SAS and our guides, Oscar and Virgilio. This trip was my dream for 29 years and it was everything I hoped for and so much more. Our guides were friendly and knew everything about the history of the trail and Machu Picchu. When we arrived on the train in Aguas Calientes, both of us wanted to start again the next morning and do it all over. The food was plentiful and nicely prepared. The sleeping bags and tents were new and of high quality. I cannot imagine how anything could have been better. Thank you ! Thank you! Mike Christensenread more

We booked three trips with SAS (river rafting, Sacred Valley, Salkantay) and all three were beyond our expectations. Every staff member and guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable with tremendous patience. I HIGHLY recommend SAS to anyone traveling through Cusco, I can't thank you all enough, you truly made our trip!!!read more

We just returned from a wonderful lares valley trek. It was more difficult than expected and cold, however our guide Javier was excellent and the other 14 trekkers were great. I unfortunately needed to ride horseback for a few hours each day and Blady and Luis were very patient with me. The tour exceeded my expectations. For those of you thinking of this trek, please bring very warm clothes for the nightime and confirm all reservations with the office as some of the accomodation and air transfer plans were not arranged properly. All in all it was a spectacular trip with incredible views. Again Javier´s knowledge and patience was second to noneread more

I have just returned to the UK after trekking the Inca Trail for Macmillan Cancer Support. I just wanted to say Thanks to all your guides and porters for all they did for the group. They were fantastic! I certainly couldn't have done it without the support from both Discover Adventure and your team. I miss my cup of hot tea on waking!
We also visited your creche - wow! I will be sending clothes and toys to DA to bring over when they next come to help out.

Dear SAS - I just concluded a wonderful 4-day Inca Trail hike with you and wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for the best trip of my life! Thank you to our guides, Ernesto & Raul, for taking care of us; thank you to our wonderful hard-working porters from the Pisac community of Pampallacta; thank you especially to Wilbur, our fantastic chef, who somehow was able to make delicious, nourishing and well-presented dishes with basic cooking equipment.
Our stay in Hotel Marqueses couldn't have been better, and we really enjoyed the post-trail lunch in Hostel Viajeros in Aguas Calientes. All in all, an extremely enjoyable and well-planned trip and I would recommend SAS Travel to my friends in a heartbeat.

We want to give BIG thanks to Ruben and Washington for making the Inka trail so interesting, funny and fantastic. Ruben, we really hope you got your train back (the only negative thing about SAS, get your guides home after the tour!!) . You are an excellent guide!!read more

I just wanted to thank SAS so much for our amazing time that we had in Cusco in January. The guide Carlos and all our porters on the Inca trail were brilliant. So supportive and always ready with our tent pitched and a hot cup of tea!
We also did the 4 hour horse trip and the Sacred Valley tour which were both great, with excellent guides. But the best of all was the rafting, what great fun! Our guide and safety Kayaker were brilliant, we couldn\'t have asked for a better day.
Thanks so much SAS! You are all great!

Our trip over Christmas and New Year to Peru was special and very well coordinated. Robyn, thank you so much for your thorough and well communicated and prepared segments of our adventure. Many folks we met on our trip had nightmare stories about their agencies - NOT US! We met wonderful new friends on our 4 day Inca Trail trek. The guides, Raul and Jose Luis were the best, the porters were incredible and the food was outstanding. Our venture into the Tambopata Amazon too was simply a dream. Thank you all for your service, kindness, friendship and making our trip memorable. I wouldn\'t hesitate referring SAS to anyone wanting a seamless, enjoyable, stress-free trip. Thanks again SAS!read more

My children still talk about the wonderful experience we had during our 2004 trip to Cusco, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and the Manu Park Jungle. Along the Inca Trail our incredible guides included, José and Alex. While in Manu, Fabia and \"Luce\" were simply wonderful!! Using the Hotel Marqueses as our \"home-base,\" we felt welcomed everywhere we went!
I am in the process of investigating a trip for my parents. Both are avid runners and travelers. I know that they too will love their Peru adventure experience.

My trek with SAS far exceded my expectations. The Porters & Guides did an excellent job; the journey was made more remarkeable by the excellent food, facilities and company of the crew. The guide\'s (Carlitos & Alex) knowledge of the trek was very impressive. With all of my questions, I always recieved a real answer! Tons of fun and will recommend SAS to anyone - THANKS!read more

Thank you SAS for an unforgettable Peruvian experience on the 4-day Inca Trail. My sister and I was looking for an adventure, and boy did we get an adventure of a lifetime! All the hard work of hiking for 4 days, the sore legs, no shower, no sleep (from the altitude).....was all totally worth it! Please extend our warmest thanks to our wonderfully funny and most entertaining tour guides: Ruben, Julio, and Saul. They\'re the best!! =)read more
