Inca Trail Guides

Our Guides are chosen for their professionalism, unbridled passion to explore and a desire to share in the experience.

They have hiked hundreds of times the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, slept under the stars and done almost every activity there is, and are keen to introduce you to the places that they call home. Our Guides will get you from A to B, organize activities and no doubt show you secret spots along the way. Ultimately they are there to make sure you get the most out of your adventure.

All of our tours are accompanied by a professional Tour Guide, all of them graduated from the tourism program of the Cusco’s university.  The guide is there to help you get the most out of your adventure. Our dedicated walking tours to Machu Picchu; are accompanied by two guides if the group is over seven tourists, to provide more walking trail options and flexibility. “Sunrise Peru Trek” Guides are a special breed; we choose the right kind of people who can handle the multitude of needs that arise throughout any tour. We are very selective in our choice of people; we employ men and women, who lead active lifestyles themselves.

It is our belief that an important ingredient for the success of Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is the Tour Guide, and we are extremely proud of the high professional standards set by our Inca Trail Guides. Our training program begins with recruiting the right people and developing their natural talents to be great team leaders.

New Inca Trail Guides receive substantial training in all areas, with specific attention being paid to group dynamics and leadership. In addition, they receive various forms of instruction from our Training and Operations teams including first-aid, driving techniques, vehicle maintenance, meal menu planning and emergency procedures. When the new guides complete their training, they receive hands-on education in the field, from managers and senior Inca Trail Guides who can relay the benefits of years of experience and knowledge. We are very proud of our training program. Our level of customer satisfaction underscores it.
