I had an amazing time on the Inca Trail!
I'm sad that I am no longer greeted in the morning with "Hello super-hiker!" Issac and Mauro made the trip unforgettable, thanks again guys ;)

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

We recently did a tour to Lake Titicaca including a home stay on one of the islands as well as hiking the Inca trail. We booked both tours with SAS Travel and we would recommend them to anyone who wants a true Peruvian experience with 3 course meals on the trek, the envy of all other groups. Our guides Jose \"A\" & Jose \"B\" were very informative on Inca history & patient with our slow pace. The porter\'s were amazing, often running up hills that left us breathless. SAS\'s claim that they will do everything to get you over \"Dead Womens Pass\" is true. The scenery and the Inca ruins are awe inspiring and leave more questions than were answered. Thank you again SAS for a trip to remember.read more

Thank you SAS for a fantastically organised, truly amazing & forever memorable Inca Trail Trek.
As regards physical achievement, I think completion of the Inca Trail is my greatest to date.
It wouldn\'t have been possible without the encouragement, patience & mighty craic of the greatest guides ever. Aldo & Amilcar (Arnie!!!), ye got me to the top when I thought I couldn’t walk another step……I owe ye big time, thanks a million.
As for the porters, they deserve all the respect that the world has to offer, the fact that they do everything with a smile on their faces only reinforces this opinion. They should be renamed “Iron Men”!
I’ll be recommending SAS Travel to anyone travelling to Peru……keep up the good work & thanks again…….

We are just back from a fabulous 3 weeks in Peru all organised through SAS Travel (29th September till 21st October). Thank you for a wonderful time - we met so many great people, saw so many amazing sights, and have many great memories. The Inca Trail was brilliant, our guides Orlando and Washington and the team of porters were excellent - thank you to all of them for making the Inca Trail the experience it was. We also had a great time in Manu - thanks for the efficient way in which our unexpected extra night at Boca Manu was organised - Dustin and the rest of the team were very helpful. Our other tours were fantastic experiences too - staying on an Island in Lake Titicaca and the colca canyon trip. All hotels were excellent too. Raul in the office in Cusco was also great and really helpful to us and others we were travelling with whenever we needed anything clarified or organised/changed.
Thank you to everyone at SAS Travel - we were very sad to leave Peru and would recommend your company to anyone wishing to travel in Peru.
It\'s difficult to get across in words what a fantastic time we had and how it was made so hassle-free by SAS....may be I\'ll write more again when I\'m over the jet lag!

This is especially for Hilbert, Rodney and Oscar.
We came to Q\'osqo at the beginning of September and did the Inca trek to Machu Picchu, starting at km82 on Saturday 8th Sept. We want to say a big thank you to our guides, Hilbert, Rodney and Oscar, for looking after us so well and making our trek so memorable. We had a truly fantastic time, even though it was tougher than we had expected. You three guys realy did care for us, encourage us and keep us going when we felt we couldn\'t go another step. And you were so interesting to listen to, and so clearly in touch with the mountains and the history. And we haven\'t forgotten our porters, those amazing men who carried all our stuff, made camp for us and cooked us some delicious meals. Thank you all so much.
We\'ll never forget our time in Peru, and we hope to come back and visit again - it\'s a truly special place.
With our love
Alison and Jim

We, a family of four with 2 12-year-olds, completed the Inca Trail with fantastic guides, Julio and Jose alongwith a terrific group of people. We loved our friendly, strong porters and especially loved the music and plays they performed for us. (July 2007)read more

We just finished the four-day Inca Trail trek and wanted to express our thanks for an amazing time! Everything about the trip was extremely well-organised, the food was terrific, and the porters worked very hard to make the experience enjoyable. Most importantly, our guide Isaac was everything we hoped for and more. His knowledge of the Quechua people (being one himself) was immense and he was great at communicating it to us. He is very funny, sincere and trustworthy and his decision-making was always spot-on. We think he is a national treasure and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours. One thing we thought might be good would be to include a few Quechua phrases on the itinerary handout to increase communication. eg. hello, excuse me or thank-you.
Thanks again SAS Travel,
Peter and Clare.
