My friends and I had such an amazing experience with SAS Travel for our Inca Trail hike to Machu Picchu! They had every little detailed planned and had all tickets pre-printed for us so that we didn't have to worry about a thing. Our guides, Ed and Davis, were incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu. They also did a great job of making sure everyone in the group was comfortable and felt included. The food on our tour was INCREDIBLE. I felt like I was eating gourmet Peruvian meals during my entire trip, and these were especially appreciated after long days of hiking.
I feel like SAS Travel made a particular effort to ensure that their guapos (aka porters) were treated extremely well. They encouraged us to thank the guapos frequently and even to clap for them when they passed us on the trail.
I would highly recommend SAS Travel to any one considering hiking the Inca Trail!!
Worth paying for quality!
I did no planning I advance for my Machu Picchu trek and just hoped things would work out for the best in Cusco. There are a million companies in the city when you arrive and choosing one is a bit of a struggle. My hostel offered Salkantay treks for about $180, but they seemed to skimp on everything and have lots of hidden costs, so I paid more for SAS, which had a good reputation online. I definitely think it was worth it - our group wasn't too big (8), our guide, Edgar, was excellent, and food was really good throughout. We got the Machu Picchu sunrise at 6am, and it's worth paying for that once-in-a-lifetime experience. Great trip!
From April 28 until May 1st 2018 we walked the Inca trail with SAS Travel. It was a great outdoor experience! Our tour guides, Jhon and Edwin, spoke very good English and knew a lot about the history and Inca and Quechua culture. We had a fun hiking group of 9 people and the guides made sure that we all had a great time, taking into account everyone’s hiking abilities. The porters were quick and professional with the camping gear and woke us every morning with a nice cup of hot coca tea. The breakfast, lunch and dinner were of star restaurant quality, thanks to chef Julio! We would highly recommend everyone to do this trip with SAS Travel. Thank you!

My son and I had a 5-day package. The tours were fantastic! All of the guides were knowledgeable, patient and provided an excellent tour and history of Peru. Hotel Marqueses was wonderful. The staff was very helpful. The hotel is beautiful and quaint. The highlight for us was the 1-day Inca Trail with Justino. The 1-day is a great alternative if you want to hike into Machu Picchu but are not up for camping out! The hike and scenery are fantastic! Justino is a great guide! I highly recommend this tour and SAS travel. Thank you for a vacation we will always remember.
I recently did the 4 day Inca trail. Our tour guide was Isaac, and he was teamed up with an excellent chef- Walter, and porter team lead by Benedict. Isaac was excellent, definitely seemed like he was the most well connected, and positive guide on the trail. Walter was super impressive! I couldn’t believe the quality and diversity of the food he was serving- unreal! Benedict lead a very happy and hard worker group of porters. Overall, kudos to the staff team that you employee.
I will write a review on tripadvisor as well.
