Incredible experience and will never forget!
Dayvis is the best tour guide. He is super nice, very knowledgeable and very accommodating! The whole SAS trek team is incredible and highly will recommend to all my family and friends! It was my birthday and they even baked me a cake with what they had, it meant so much to me! Appreciated all the cooks, porters and especially our guide Dayvis. We are so thankful for SAS !!
Best Salkantay Tour Company!!
SAS went above and beyond in every way for our 5 day salkantay trail! Best trip ever! Highly recommend this company for the best service and experience.
Roger, our tour guide made every moment so special full of knowledge sharing, laughter, and positivity. He brought us on special add on hikes and excursions that were incredible. Oscar, our chef, prepared literal feasts for every meal that were all delicious, unique, and nourishing. Other tour groups were salivating when they saw the food we were served. Elias, quickly became our friend with morning tent wake-ups with cocoa tea, his huge smile, and incredible service for camping and meal time. All of the staff was incredible and made our experience feel like “glamping” in the most beautiful Peruvian Andes scenery.
Jonathan, made planning this trip so easy with quick responses and extreme flexibility when we had to reschedule to 2022 after the 2020 surprise pandemic interrupted plans.
It should also be noted that during our trip there were strikes going on that led to blockades around Cusco, making it difficult to get to the trailhead on day 1. However, our SAS team was the only tour company that found a way for us to begin the trip on time with commitment and creativity. We are so thankful for SAS!!
Amazing 4d/3n classic Inca trail.!
I just finished hiking the 4d/3n classic Inca trail with SAS and would absolutely recommend this company. Communication was great from start to finish - even before my friend and I booked the tour, Jonathan was extremely responsive and helpful in answering all of our questions.
On the hike, our tour guide Deyviss was extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of the Inca empire. He was also very accommodating for the varying fitness levels in our group, even helping me carry my backpack when I got really bad altitude sickness on the second day. Elias, the porter team, and the chef were also phenomenal, running ahead of us to ensure everything ran on schedule.
Overall, this was an amazing experience and I really enjoyed hiking with Deyviss and team!
Sacred Valley plus Short Inca Trail.!
Just finished the Sacred Valley plus Short Inca Trail 3 Days/ 2 Nights Tour. The tour was incredible and more than covered everything in the prospective. But what really made the trip was the office staff and the guide. The personal attention from the Cusco office staff Jonathan as he setup the trip just as we requested including getting tickets to Huayna Piccho Mountain at the time we wanted and arranging for airport transport and Covid testing. I had a few special needs due to age and allergies, and he made sure that they were addressed.
Our guide for the 3 days, Danny Ramirez, was both an expert guide with a deep knowledge of Inca and Spanish culture as well as the local flora and fauna, but also a personal coach, encouraging me forward yet giving me space to enjoy some of the most spectacular scenery on the planet. It was a real privilege for me and my family to spend 3 days with him. Thank you.
The most amazing experience!
I just finished the 4 day/3 night Inca Trail with Deyviss and his team of incredible porters and a phenomenal cook. The trail was challenging, but Deyviss did an incredible job encouraging and taking care of everyone. He was the only guide on the trail that we saw who was carrying an oxygen tank, which quite a few people (even in other companies’ tour groups!) needed on the second day. He was also extremely empathetic and made sure that everyone’s needs and fitness levels were accommodated at all times. Along the trail, he answered all of our questions, motivated us, and taught us an immense amount about Peruvian history. He truly was instrumental in making our tour group feel like a family.
In addition, the campsite experience and food was AMAZING. The porters always got to the campsite with smiles (I don’t know how they did it) and set up everything for us, making the logistics so easy. We always got fresh, hot, delicious meals, and they always made sure to take care of my dietary restrictions. We even got snacks every morning!
Overall, I would like to extend a huge thank you to the SAS team for making my experience so seamless and memorable. I couldn’t recommend them enough!
Dear Irvin & SAS Team,
Thank you so much for the great service you provided during our 2 weeks stay in Peru.
We were really impressed how well everything was organized. With so many internal flights and connection we were always met by one of your partners without any delay . Thanks to your service we enjoyed fabulous Peru stress-free.
A special thank you to Jonathan, who promptly replied to all our inquiries and always been very helpful.
We thoroughly enjoyed your country and certainly will recommend SAS Travel to anyone planning to visit Peru.

Amazing Trek with SAS Travel.
We did the 5D/4N Salcantay Trek with SAS. We preferred this over the Inca trail. Much more scenic, no crowds, private campsites, waterfalls, snow capped mountains, etc. SAS was everything we were hoping they would be. No last minute surprises, they were there at the airport, Hotel Marqueses was splendid, breakfast was great, the guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. The tents were spacious (4 person tent for 2 people) No regrets, we highly recommend. PS, Food on the trek was out of this world. How they can prepare a 5 course meal on a mountain using fresh produce was beyond us...
Dear SAS Office Staff and Team,
We just finished up your Lares trek this evening and I wanted to write to tell you what a wonderful group of staff members you have. I’m sure you are already aware but both of our guides, Julio and Felipe, were incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and kind. It felt as though they constantly knew exactly what the group needed and made it happen and they were so positive during what I am sure could be a very difficult job. These type of trips depend so much on the outlook on the staff that lead them and I feel incredibly lucky to have had such wonderful guides.
In addition the food that was prepared by our chefs was so delicious and just to our dietary needs. We felt so lucky to try such delicious Peruvian food especially as vegetarians and have none better in Peru than on your trek. All of the staff were incredibly kind and friendly despite the hard work that they were doing and I would highly recommend every person that was a part of our team.
Thanks to you for putting together such a wonderful group of staff members and sharing them with us.
Words can not describe how amazing the Inka Trail hike is. with SAS. I had an incredible time. The trip was extremely well planned. Our main guide, Evert, was one of the most knowledgeable people I have ever met. There was not a flower he did not know or an anthropological, or archaeological, question he could not answer. After the Inka Trail with him, one should earn three credits for college. Evert was assisted by the caring and helpful Cesar.read more
"The experience was fantastic".
My wife, son and I just took the 3 day / 2 night tour to the Sacred Valley, Inca Trail, and Machu Picchu. The experience was fantastic. Hiking the Inca trail, even for one day gave us a unique perspective to the area and history. Martin, our tour guide in the Sacred Valley was attentive and informative. Diego, our guide for the trail and sanctuary did a wonderful job telling us about the cultural and natural history of the area. Overall we would book again with SAS Travel. Thank you so much!
We did the trek (4-day Inca trail, jungle and Colca canyon) a couple of weeks ago. Absolutely amazing. Very well organized and an extraordinary memory. Thank you sastravel, with John (Inca-trekk, nice, calm, caring and experienced guide. You are with us John!), Christian (Sacred valley, very good guide!), chef and porters. There is so much to say, but it is all superlatives.... I highly recommend you to friends who are asking about the adventure.read more
We trekked the Inca trail with SAS Travel in Cusco and it was a truly amazing experience, the food was top grade and the guides spoke excellent English and had great knowledge of the Inca sites and way of life which added a lot of value to the tour. Porters, cooks and guides are amazing. I would highly recommend.

We did the Classic Inca Trail 5day/4nights from July 24 to July 28, 2018 and had the most exhilarating experiences! Our guides, Levorio and Eder were absolutely incredible and were always a hoot. Everyone in our group of 13 got along perfectly. We had the time of our lives and I will never forget it!

Completed the 4 day 3 night Inka Trail. Amazing group, our guides Eder (very funny) and Javier were amazing hosts, they not only accommodated us in every way but also looked after us and kept us entertained. Eds knowledge was very useful. Our fantastic Chaskis (porters) were beautiful, very hardworking, humble men, always smiling. Our chef and sous chef prepared the most delicious and substantial meals, over feeding us. Definitely not what we expected. Would highly recommend. Thank you SAS for the experience.read more
Everyone at SAS Travel.
Thank you so much for making my Inca Trail experience SO WONDERFUL -
I had a really great time.Our guide Christian was hallarious, and kept everyone in really great spirits,even on the difficult days. People in other groups were staring at us,wondering where we found the energy to sing "in the Jungle" on the way up to Dead Woman's Pass, but it took our minds off the difficult climb ahead, and this was actually my favourite of all the days!! Please pass my thanks on to Christian and David, who kept me company at the back of the group.
Everyone I dealt with at SAS was just great - from my initial enquiries, to the guides, the cook and the staff at Aguas Callientes. It was a lovely treat arriving at the hostal at Aguas Callientes - I was expecting shared
dorms, but the private room with private bathroom were among the nicest rooms I've stayed in since I arrived on my budget holiday to South America.
I am really glad I spent the extra $40 or so to go with a trully exceptional company. I have already recommended SAS to other travellers and hope they
will do the same when they come down the mountain.

Words could never describe how incredible this adventure was in Cusco! I never considered myself a hiker or a camper but was looking for a challenge and a new way to explore the world. Sas travel are incredible and the people they bring together are amazing! They were easy to get in touch with when I had questions and made a scary experience so exciting! I would recommend an adventure like this to EVERYONE!
Thank you to Martin and Christian our guides Liliana and Irwin in Cusco office.
Really enjoyed the 2 day Colca Canyon tour.
Our guide Henry and driver Emanuel were outstanding. There were plenty of opportunities for photographs and/or just plain contemplation of the amazing sights we visited during the 2 days; I did not feel rushed at all. Henry was very knowledgeable of the sites we visited and provided plenty of explanations and comments. Emanuel drove us safely throughout the tour. Standard accommodations in Chivay for this tour were very good. Communication with SAS Travel, pick-up and drop-off in Arequipa were smooth. Thank you all!
Pick this tour group!
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!!
