    I had an incredible time hiking the Inca trail with Aiban and three friends! The trail was beautiful and Aiban was very knowledgeable, and consistently accommodating and flexible. The setup itinerary by flashpacker really allowed us to be able to maximize our time there. Would 100% recommend!

    Amazing experience with FlashPacker LLC. Especially Joaquin. He was very informative and head a great sense of humor. You can tell when someone is passionate about what they do in the way things are presented. Also he saved my life I was going for the record of fastest man down the 7 color mountains lol. Also like they take you to a home cooked meal for lunch on the rainbow mountain portion. The weather was great for Machu Picchu and the 7 color mountains. He picked up on time for the tour and was very flexible and patient throughout. Can’t recommend them and Joaquin enough

    Flashpacker was fantastic! Our guide Rosbel was super knowledgeable about all the sites and made every adventure fun. I also liked that they knew when to give our group our own space to explore alone - very important for someone like me that doesn't usually use travel services. The food was always delicious and the transport was super comfortable and always on time. 10/10 I would recommend to a friend and will definitely use again.

    This was a great trip overall. After waiting for two years due to the pandemic we finally got a chance to go. Our guides Giovani, Roberto, and Phillipe were awesome. We got to see all the sights as scheduled, guides were freindly and explained everything. This was a Father/Son trip and it was an experience that we will not forget. We did the Cusco city tour, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Rainbow Mountain and other tours. Rainbow Mountain was challenging but glad we did it.

    Flashpacker Connect provided a professional and all inclusive service, which is very important when one decides to hike in the Andes. It was our first time at this altitude (around 5000 meters), but our guide Amilcar always made sure that we are okay while guiding us through the magnificent passes, mountains and sceneries of the Andes. The whole route is amazing, not just the Rainbow mountain, where we got way earlier than the crowds. The tents and sleeping bags were really warm, the food was delicious, thanks to our chef Charlie. The location of the shelter is beautiful, we could see the most shining stars at night. Our driver David navigated very safely on the narrow and curvy mountain roads, where we often faced heavy llama and alpaca “traffic” :). We recommend this 2-days trip to everyone, who is not afraid of a challenge and wants a unique experience while visiting one of Peru’s most popular sights.

    We loved our 2-days with Joaquin from Flashpacker touring Pisaq, Ollantaytambo, and Machu Picchu. From the moment he picked us up at our hotel in Cusco with our driver, Jose, we had such an enjoyable time and everything went smoothly from a logostics standpoint too (moving from vans to trains to buses & back). Most importantly, Joaquin was a wealth of knowledge & we learned so much from him - not only about the Incan sites we visited, but also about life and food in the region. While we did not request a private tour, it was just my boyfriend (Mark) and I touring with Joaquin for 2 days. He even took the Huayna Picchu hike with us. So fun!

    Aiben is our tour guide he is very knowledgeable he cares a lot about the group. Small things such as suggestions for best way to wear 2 backpacks. He lent his trek pole to my daughter Emily which helped a lot. Charly is our chef. The meals are surreal including a 10 inches cake for breakfast. There is soup before each meal. Each dish is nicely decorated the foods are all super healthy Every morning they served hot tea and coffee to our tent. When we arrive at camp site everyone clapped hand for us

    Incredible company to book with. We were greeted at our hostel both days by our guide, Albert. For our train trip to Machu Picchu, he was very informative on the Inka and their culture. He took photos, and gave us great ideas for memorable photos. After our tour Albert made sure we got to our destination safely. The next day We had a 1 day tour of the Palccoyo Mountains ( there was community disputes at rainbow mountain causing it to be closed). Albert was very informative and accommodating on this trip. My friend and I have never been at that high of an elevation. Albert showed us a beautiful tradition of the Inka people and gifted something to each of this. This was a beautiful experience and we are both so honoured that he showed this to us. Our driver, Mario was incredible. Mario drove us to the Palccoyo hike. He was very patient on the road while oncoming vehicles were trying to come up the mountain while we were heading down. Mario’s driving skills were very impressive. Thank you Mario for making us feel safe. The meals that were provided for both days were delightful.

    My 7 girlfriends and I just completed a two day hiking tour with FlashPackers to see the beautiful Machu Picchu and rainbows of the Palccoyo mountains. Joaquin was our main guide and Mario was our driver for both days. Amilcar joined as our secondary guide for Palccoyo. Being the driver for these tours is a tough job, but Mario was a total pro driver! He was able to navigate us up and down both treacherous terrains safely! He was also as gentle as could be over all bumps so that we could nap during the rides. 💗 Joaquin was very knowledgeable. He enlightened us about the Inka empire history and answered all of our questions. As much as we dreaded waking up so early he knew it was the best idea to help best all the crowds; boy was he right about that! We were so glad to avoid the crowds and were able to get premium photo ops! Joaquin and Amilcar were both so so patient with us as we are all novice “hikers”. They let us trek at our own pace, never rushing us or forcing us to do more than we felt comfortable with. They came equipped for any emergency and all emergency solutions; from oxygen tanks to special smelling oils to help with the altitude. We were so thankful for those as some of us ended needing both! ❤️‍🩹 I will always recommend Joaquin, Mario and Amilcar from FlashPackers to all my other adventure seeking traveling friends. You definitely will get the best and ultimate experience!! 👍🏼

    This is our first annual girls trip after the pandemic. We chose flashpacker as our tour company. It was the best decision. Joaquin was the best guide ever. He was very knowledgeable on all things Peru. I learned a lot on the trip about the Inca history. His colleagues Mario and Amilcar joined us. Mario drove us through all kinds of terrains safely. Everyone was very accommodating and kind.
