Toured with Alfredo a few years ago, and he is an incredible guide. His trip took us to amazing sites, but it wasn't just ruins and beauty. Alfredo immersed us in a culture and history. We spent part of a day with a shaman and learned about Inca spirituality, then feasted on native foods. I would highly recommend Alfredo and his enterprise.
Really enjoyed our trek with PAD. We did the 5 day trek to Machu Picchu. The scenery was incredible, the food was amazing, fresh and healthy with lots of options. Our guides Alfredo and JC were excellent. Very knowledgeable , helpful and encouraging. The hardest day is day two. But the altitude can start affecting you from day one so be sure to acclimatize prior to leaving. The huts and camps we stayed in were very comfortable. Alfredo is quite funny and was always paying attention to any little details such as making sure your trekking poles were the right length or that your pack wash`t too heavy. Alfredo passion for the Salkantay area was obvious throughout the trek and especially at Machu Picchu where we felt very lucky to have had him as our guide to tour us around the site. He was very knowledgeable and showed us so much and explained it all with great enthusiasm. I could go on and on about how happy we were to have had JC and Alfredo and it is all too true but as well as that I have to say that we were totally impressed with the whole Peru Andes Discovery outfit from the office organization in Cusco all the way through the Trek to Machu Picchu and the train back.
