Day 1: Cusco – Pispitayoc (Biking)

Everybody gets on board! From your hotel directly we arrange transportation for the whole group from 5h30 to 6am. After driving quietly through the sacred land we will stop for breakfast in a nice B&B at the bottom of the mountain. You will find a last chance to buy extra goods for next day trekking. Later we will be at Abra Malaga's breach where a 3hrs descent will take place along a sweet and relax car road that overlooks the Incan's valley . At the end of the program there will be a chance at doing rafting and it will ends at a beautiful ecolodge in the town of Santa Rosa. 

Day 2: Pispitayoc (Ecolodge) - Santa Teresa (Trekking)

On this day a long walking day awaits us. This inca trail leads throughout small coffee plantations, fruit trees, pineapple fields, etc. You will see also many types of plants, orchids and birds that houses the landscape - the group will descend for 2.30 hr. approx. to arrive at the village of Qellomayo. After a break we will trek for another 2&1/2 hrs. going through: suspension bridge, waterfalls & rivers, cable train into a  tunnel until the hot springs of Cocalmayo where we will rest for the rest of the day. The journey ends in the town of Santa Teresa for the night.

Day 3: Santa Teresa – Aguas Calientes (Hiking) 

The passengers that reserved in advance will do the zipline* (later they will be taken by bus to Hidroélectrica), the rest of the group will continue hiking for approx. 3 hr. until reaching the rendez-vous point. The group will meet in a nice cottage under Machu Picchu's shadow for a delicious lunch. After relaxing in hammock under the shade, the journey will continue along the railway for 3 hrs, going through the jungle and its marvel until arriving at the town of Aguas Calientes. The group will be taken to their room by 4 pm and the night will bring us all together in a restaurant for a great dinner. A part of this time will be used to organize next day to Machu Picchu. 


Day 4: Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Cusco

The group will get up early to go to Machu Picchu following an ascending route through the high forest. With chances, we will see the sunrise at the site! The guide will give you a detailled 2 hrs tour of the ancient sanctuary. Later the group will be free to visit Machu Picchu by its own. Passengers that reserved hiking to Huayna Picchu *Stairs of death* will be startled by their adventure. In the afternoon the group return separately to Aguas Calientes and wait until their return in train (9.30 pm) towards Ollantaytambo. *We recommend that you talk with your guide for extra trails in the area or hotspots he could lead you. Also you can reserve an extra night to return peacefully in the morning. We will arrive late in Cusco at midnight.

  • This was an incredible experience that I will treasure for the rest of my life. All organizational aspects of the trip were great, and Jonathan was a good guide. The only thing that was somewhat annoying was the amount of rest that was provided. At times it felt like we were sitting around more than walking. However, considering all the experiences that we still ended up with, the trip was excellent.

  • The route was good, but the organization could have been better. Our pre-departure meeting was first delayed, then improvised in Spanish, after me and my friend had been to the agency twice on the same day. the pick up the next day was one hour late, despite the fact that the agency assured us we would have been the first ones to be picked up, since our hotel was out of the city center. generally pick ups in Peru were quite punctuals, that was the only time we had to wait. when the driver arrived, he didnt greet us or apologized for the wait. at the time of booking we were assured we would sleep the first night in a shared room, but the other nights in double rooms. We ended up sleeping the first night in a room for 5 people, and the other nights in a triple room. we had booked and pre-paid the additional excursion to huayna picchu, but when we got to the agency we were told that it was sold out, but we could do an other trek instead which was way harder. Board and lodging was ok. I totally recommend the trip itself, but with a better operator.

  • Was a great trip, well organised, our tour guide carlitos was attentive and took good care of us. We had a small group with similar abilities and up for everything. This is a great active alternative to the Inca trail, would highly recommend it. Great memories, beautiful, picturesque views. Shafali

  • Worst tour I ever had. I tried to submit my review of this tour 3 times now, and you are not allowing me. Terrible treatment of us with constant stressful sitiations this tour company caused us. Is not worth the money or the trouble not recommended as long as it's done by this local company.

  • The tour in itself was fun. It was a great trip and I got experience something amazing while hiking along the way. However, logistics were not clear. Conde travel and since then, updated their packages but there were expenses along the way that were not told to us ahead of time which was stressful.

  • My husband and I turned sixty this year and decided to see Machu Picchu for our birthdays...we had friends our age our son and an international mix of twenty and thirty somethings ..so diverse and so fun...guides were great..not always easy trekking biking rafting and zip lining but WE DID IT !!!

  • Everything that we did in the journey itself was amazing and Pablo was an amazing guide. If you take part in the journey I recommend you take part in all the extras white water rafting, ziplines, and hiking Hiyanu Pichu. We were lucky for the first two days in that we only had a group of 3 myself, my wife, one other traveler, and our guide. Due to this, though, we were able to stay at an Ecolodge looking down on a glorious valley view breathtaking. The second day of hiking was light with a siesta built in but the walk on the Inka trail was magnificent once again, props to Pablo for taking pictures and great explanations. The hot springs were a much needed respite after the day of hiking. The hostels nights 2 and 3 left something to be desired especially the hostel in Aguas Calientes but the 3 am hike to Machu Picchu was the experience of a lifetime.
    After the hike we had a lot of down time in Aquas Calientes which is pricey, watch out for service charges at restaurants but the PeruRail ride was great.
    All in all, the trip was intimate and exciting, allowing us to make several friends along the way. This trip is a bit pricier online in advance than booking in the city, but we were also the only people with a reservation in advance long enough to hike Machu Hiyanu.
    Though you cant reserve a specific guide, Pablo was by far the most professional and reliable guide Ive ever had.

  • The tour itself was fantastic and one of the best experiences of my life! Everything was really well organized through Condetravel and we had the best group and guides! The tour is not for the weak as there is a lot of physical activity, but the guides kept a pace everyone could keep up with. As far as food goes, I opted for vegetarian options, but they could not accommodate that since you are staying with families in remote areas who eat meat from their farms, but you can get by. Sleeping accommodations were basic, but comfortable. Keep a LOT of bug spray on you for this trek. No wifi at all for most of the trek. Highly recommend going with this company. Here are my words of advice:

    I highly recommend booking this tour directly with Condetravel as it is half the price with the exact same itinerary. Some of the people on the tour with me booked the day before we left without problem.

    This tour has activities like water rafting, biking, and ziplining, all of which are NOT included in this viator price. When the guide asked me to pay for the biking, I threw a fit because I paid so much more than everyone else and did not have all this included like they did. They were kind and gave me the full package without trouble, but you may not be so lucky so I would not book this tour online.

  • Conde Travel was extremely unprofessional and did not show up. Viator does not want to help solve the problem.

  • This trek is worth every bit of the price! Our guide spoke very good english, the food was amazing and we always felt safe. I do not have any complaints about this tour and you will not either!
