2 day inca trail
We took the 2 day trip with inca trails and Machu Picchu.

Even we decided to do it last minute (8pm before the tour) they were very helpful and arranged everything in minutes.

Our tour guide Adner was flawless, and we really had a great time with him guiding us all the way from cusco to cusco.

So definetely a great experience and recommendation.

Short Inca trail + Wayna Picchu
Amazing experience with the fantastic guide Adner! He lead us across the short Inca trail, showing us the most amazing Inca sites and views of the Machu Picchu! On the second day he guided us through the Machu Picchu site providing amazing insights and then showed us the way to the Wayna Picchu.
Amazing experience I would definitely recommend to everyone willing to visit Machu Picchu, worth all the effort during the hike!

Perfect 2-day hike and tour of Machu Picchu
After two years of limited travel due to the pandemic, we decided to book a couples trip to Peru over the Thanksgiving Holiday. We had an amazing time in Cusco, Machu Picchu and Sacred Valley.

We took two days to acclimate to the altitude, which was enough time to feel prepared for the hike.

We chose Sam Travel for our tour and would highly recommend both Sam travel and our guide (Nico). We went through orientation two days before we departed, which was great because there were items we had not remembered to bring. If you forget any hiking gear, you can you this time to buy gear in town and explore the Inca ruins.

Sam Travel: Organized and flexible. They made it easy for us to not do any planning. We left from Cusco and returned to Sacred Valley - Sam Travel even organized for a driver to bring us from the train station to our hotel in Sacred Valley. We were able to add on Wayna Picchu just a week before our trek.

Nico: Friendly and knowledgeable. Nico navigated seamlessly throughout the tour. In addition to his deep understanding of Incan history, areas of caution on the trail, and meanings of words in Quechua, Nico is a talented photographer and took breathtaking photos to keep our memories alive long after our return. In addition he has a good awareness of recent events like landslides to avoid and policy changes (eg, mask and face shield requirements for the pandemic, etc).

Great experience! SAM was highly professional, on top of all the details and easy to communicate with via whatsapp. Our guide (and photographer) Nilo was excellent - he went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of.

Two enjoyable days visiting Machu Picchu.
Done short Inca Trail Trek to Machu Picchu with Sam Travel. Only booked it two days before start of trek. Everything was arranged perfectly. Made new friends. Nilo our guide was excellent. He is very friendly and knowledgeable and knew when we needed to take a break. If you want to book a tour in Cusco l highly recommend Sam Travel.

Great experience! Jorge is the best guide, he was patient with me and helped me get to the finish line, even when I didn’t think I could make it. Very rewarding experience, book your 2 day hike without thinking twice with SAM!

Great experience
Nov 2021 • Solo
It's a well organized trip in all aspects and the communication was great throughout. Before booking I did some research and short listed this one. The best part of this trip was my guide Milo who was very patient and friendly. He is a true professional and really knowledgeable. He has kept the motivation level high throughout which was needed as I do not hike very often. I surely recommend him to anyone booking this tour. The dinner in Aguas Caliente on the first day was great and the lunch during the hike was good as well.
Overall I would recommend the tour agency and specially the Guide.
