    J'ai été absolument ravie des services de cette agence ! En contact avec Dimas, celui-ci m'a toujours donné de bons conseils et m'a organisé le trek Inca (4 jours de rando vers le Macchu Picchu) et 3 jours au lac Titicaca à la perfection ! Je suis partie seule mais avec cette agence, je ne me suis jamais sentie seule 🙏❤️ Dimas parle français, un point de plus pour les non polyglottes 😁😁

    Did the four-day Inca tour with our guide Lazandro, and had a great time with the small group of five we had. Booked when we arrived in Cusco and paid $540 including credit card fees, though I believe pricing is more expensive when booking in advance/online. Enjoyed the small group experience and ability to go at your own pace (unlike some of the larger agencies that bring multiple waves of people). Food was great and the camping conditions were satisfactory, though everyone on the Inca Trail is subject to primitive pit toilets. Pacing of the tour was better than other groups who had to summit twice in a day. I recommend the agency, but with the one caveat that I wish they provided better boots or hiking apparel for their porters. As they are all required by law, some of the other agencies provide much better equipment for their porters, and I wish Xtreme Tourbulencia did the same. Overall, great experience and what I felt was a good value trek!

    We went as a couple on the Inka trail for 4 days. I think we had one of the best trek experience we could have with Rene and Nestor as guides, Cesar, Mario, Papicho and all the others as porters and cooks. Thank you so much. We booked through ITEP agency in Cusco and everything went super well. Rene was very proactive, reliable and proficient. 5/5 for him and the team. Edit: quiero mas chupi! A couple of negative points for me: - Just know that this is a very busy trail, and the Machu Picchu is even busier - that's nothing to blame either on the company nor on the team - it seems that the team, most importantly the porters, are not so well paid, or at least it is unclear how much they earn. We tried to compensate this with tips, but it's just impossible to know if you're tipping right, and it would be much preferrable if the company was transparent about where the money goes.

    Wir waren mit Xtreme Tourbulencia vier Tage auf dem Inka Trail unterwegs und haben die Wanderung dank der guten Betreuung und Versorgung durch das Team erfolgreich hinter uns gebracht. Der Guide René hat sich super auf unser Tempo eingestellt und die Tour mit zahlreichen Erklärungen zu Kultur, Architektur, Pflanzen, Tieren und vielem mehr bereichert. Kann ich nur weiterempfehlen!
