Salkantay trek - uma experiência mágica! Waiky Puma foi um excelente guia e amigo durante a trilha, nos ensinando tudo sobre a linda historia, cultura e geografia dos maravilhosos lugares que passamos durante a mística trilha de Salkantay. Além disso, a logística da trilha foi impecável, desde as hospedagens até o cozinheiro, tornando a experiência ainda melhor! Nota 10. Recomendo a Go Treks de olhos fechados para qualquer um que queira realizar essa e outras trilhas que este local sensacional tem a oferecer.

Machu Picchu Ivan Puma fue incrible al presentar Machu Picchu. Mientras todos iban apurados, ello nos llevó con calma a sacar las mejores fotos y luego nos dio tiempo para disfrutar de la mejor vista del lugar. Despues sentamos y nos explicó varios detalles de la historia y de la ciudadela. Solo después de toda la información, las fotos y el maravilloso momento de contemplación, realizamos el recorrido por cada rincón de Machu Picchu.

Best part of Peru! Go Treks Peru twas the highlight of my trip to Peru. The food and lodging was so incredible that I somehow gained 5 lbs while walking 50 miles. Our guide, Puma, managed to keep the positive energy up in our group with jokes and stories for 5 straight days. Our group was relatively young so we kept a pretty quick pace throughout the trek but Puma was very patient and hung out with whomever was the slowest that day while being supportive. The experience was life changing and I would recommend this to everyone

Humantay Lake and Salkantay Pass 2 days trek. One of the prettiest hikes I’ve ever done! I went alone, but ended up in a group of four along with our guide, Puma! He made the trek a once in a lifetime experience! He was very knowledgeable in history, flora, and fauna, and had a great sense of humor making learning about everything so much fun. I was only able to do one trek, but I’ll be back and booking with GoTreks Peru, again! Hopefully I get Puma again!!!!
