All activities turned out to be great experiences

As a solo traveller I did the 5 Day Salkantay trek on the 15th of April with Conde Travel, after I previously did the Rainbow Mountain Hike on the 14th and Sacred Valley tour on the 13th, all with Conde Travel. All activities turned out to be great experiences. Partly because I got so lucky with the weather as well as with the group and guides! Both hikes were extremely well arranged from the piking up at the hostels in Cusco, to the good breakfast for the necessary energy to climb the mountains as well as the delicious lunch. The Sacred Valley Tour is great if you want to have more of a chill day. I particularly enjoyed the energy of our guide Durian, during the Salkantay Trek. Personal highlights were the Rainbow Mountain, and the Zip-line and Hot Spring Activity on Day 3 and 4 of Salkantay Trek. Small note, is that I would advice people to take the train back, as it is more quick and convenient. Also it can be though at times, with the hike to the beautiful lake and to the top, however if you bring extra snacks, water and power bars you should be able to make it Machu Pichu on Day 5 without to much hassle. The sunrise over Machu Pichu on day 5 made it an unforgettable experience. Final tip for the Rainbow mountain, try to do this after you acclimatised for some days in Cusco, as it can be difficult at 5.000+ meters. Thanks Durian and Conde Travel for organising!

Conde travel has a comparatively good English website and uses this for what its worth. The 5D/4N with rafting, zip-line and train cost 220 USD at most places in Cusco. Conde sells this for 495, reduced from 522. This is more than twice the price. Having finished this trip doing many activities with other groups from other agencies and talking with them we can say that they do not deliver better service or quality than their competitors. What is actually worse is that they sell the tour much cheaper at the counter, only 320 USD. We asked one of the managers why they had this big difference between online prices and over the counter, and even when pressed with the tourist police present - at our request - he could not come up with any better excuse that they had to cover VISA-charges. This is if course a lie, since they offer to use VISA to play for tours over the counter as well. Most agencies offer cheaper prices online since you prepay, but Conde cheats on the prices to fool unknowing tourists.

The only thing to say is stay far away from this company.

      About Conde Travel

      Peru and Machu Picchu experts providing several itineraries to Machu Picchu and the surrounding country.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      The provide a large variety of Machu Picchu experiences, including treks along the numerous trail routes such as the Inca Trail, Salkantay, and Lares Trek. They also offer tours around wider Peru, exploring Manu, Puno and elsewhere. They have a very local focus and their guides will share unique stories and perspectives on the history of Peru and the Inca heritage.

      Who Travels With Them?

      If you are an active traveler, ready for an adventure, you’ll fit in well. Most of their tours will deal with the elements in some way, including rapid altitude changes. You’ll also be hiking long distances on the treks to Machu Picchu. Their other tours around Peru are outdoor focused but less strenuous options are available.

      Where Do They Operate?

      They are entirely focused in Peru, specializing in treks to Machu Picchu. Other tours visit Cusco, Manu, Puno, and Arequipa.

      Why Travel With Them?

      For an exciting Peru journey led by knowledgeable local experts. Especially if you are interested in visiting Machu Picchu, they have numerous options available for different physical levels and depending on how long you want to hike. Given that they only focus on Peru, if specialization is important to you, they are a great choice.
