Took the 5 day Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu during our Peru vacation. Great experience with Trexperience. Good communication from beginning to end. Dedicated guides kept us motivated and took care of all the details. The trip is a blast. Some from our group ended up book another trip to the Rainbow mountain after we came back from Machu Picchu. Highly recommend

I did the Inca Trek with Trexperience and I am very happy I did so with them. To start, email communication with Coronel was superb previously to the trek. During the trek, Ray (our main guide) looked after the group like a real friend. He is very knowledgeable and supportive. He always warned us in advance of what to expect of each part of the trek and how to prepare for it. William (our second guide) is really friendly and was always making sure we were happy.

We were also introduced to each of our 17 porters! They provided an excellent job, putting up our tents and making sure our stay at the campsite was comfortable. And indeed everyday, while on the trek I was looking forward to happy hour at the campsite with all the nice food treats cooked by our cook. Food was beautifully presented, filling and super healthy.

I definitely recommend Trexperience to my friends and would trek over and over again with them. Ray, William, until next time!

5 days Salkantay trek review.

Traveling with Trexperience has definitely been one of the best decisions I've taken during my vacations in Peru. It's a really dedicated team, ethical, highly professional, punctual, and organized. They make sure that every single detail is taken care of so that you can fully immerse yourself in you trek.

Before the trek:
One of the staff members will meet you before the start of the trek to go through the run down of all five days, make sure you have all the essentials, and that you won't be missing anything vital while there.

During the trek:
Accompanied by a guide who's english is impeccable, you'll be walking through some of the most amazing sights you'll ever see. When compared with other groups, our food was worthy of a cook book! 3 course meals 3 times a day, with fresh brewed coffee, and as much matte de coca as you need!
You'll be awaken everyday with some hot water, and tea/coffee, and the at the end of each day you'll be welcomed to the camping sight with hot water to wash up, and really great quality food.
Every single detail is thought of carefully!

After the trek:
You'll be left with memories that will last you a lifetime, and bonded with a team who's objective is not only to make money, but to help the local community, which makes it even more rewarding for anyone who doesn't want to be the typical tourist.

Other important details:
We were only 2 girls throughout the trek, and never felt under any threat, we were safe and very well taken care of. Carlos, one of the founders of this company is an incredible human with a story that will leave you inspired.

You will not regret booking through them for SURE!

        About Signature Collection by Gate 1

        A unique collection of luxury trips designed by Gate 1 travel.

        What Makes Gate 1 Signature Collection Stand Out?

        These are luxury minded trips with a local focus. Guides are all local experts, from and living in the destination you’re visiting. Each itinerary features exclusive experiences. Groups are small and each day is full of activity but well balanced.

        They focus on offering only a select group of trips in this special collection - allowing them the freedom to create truly spectacular itineraries - which include more inclusions in the price than their other collections.

        The tagline is “More Luxury for Less”. These tours may not be in same luxury travel class if you’re used to Abercrombie & Kent, however where comfort and extravagance meets fun and busy travel days of sightseeing and tours, you’ll find Gate 1 Signature Collection.

        Who Will Enjoy Traveling with Gate 1 Signature Collection?

        Those travelers who are willing to spend a little bit more for a 4-5 star experience, will probably find a sweet spot with Gate 1 Signature tours. These trips tend to be attended by older travelers, in the 50+ range.  

        Don’t expect too much strenuous activity. You can expect easy paced walks, guided tours and lectures, and stops to explore interesting cultural sites and historical attractions.

        While some of these cultural experiences, included in their “Signature Experiences”, are truly unique, be wary that many of these inclusions are fairly standard offerings - such as a hot air balloon ride over the African savannah. So the luxury experience of exclusivity you may be expecting is to be taken with a grain of salt. These tours offer wonderful experiences - but the destinations or activities are not always particularly uncommon or rare.  

        Top Destinations

        They currently don’t offer an overly extensive list of countries, but tours do go all over the world. This includes Central Europe, Spain, and the UK, Israel, Jordan and Morocco, Peru, Southeast Asia, Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe.

        Gate 1 Signature Collection Travel Style

        Signature Collection tours with Gate 1 aim for comfort, ease, and unique cultural experiences. Like their other brands, Gate 1’s Signature Collection is about making sure your sightseeing is maximized, and the price is right for the experience.

        Most sightseeing, meals, wifi, tips, and their “Signature Experiences” are included in the itinerary price - unlike Gate 1’s main brand which offers less inclusions. This type of itinerary more helpful to budget travelers wishing to pick and choose which activities they would like to pay for. Gate 1 Signature Tours, however, are best suited to those who want more inclusions and less hassle to have to decide on how to spend their travel time.

        Why Choose a Tour with Gate 1 Signature Collection?

        If you’re an older traveler looking for a boutique, comfortable, and well paced tour, the Signature tours may suit you very well. Travelers love the customer service, attention to detail, and depth of knowledge the guides bring to each day on the tour. There is also a good balance of free time and optional additional sightseeing opportunities.

        All tours feature included “Signature Experiences” which are the main highlights that make the Signature Collection tours stand out from the other Gate 1 brands. These are unique excursions, usually with a strong cultural focus - such as an evening of Irish music in Galway, or a traditional dinner in the deserts of Morocco. They also often include lectures that explore a destinations history or a specific facet of the culture.
