The authorized agencies of the Inca Trail have the authorization of the National Service of Natural Areas Protected by the State (SERNANP) for official transport of groups. Last year of 2023, there are exactly 226 travel agents that offer a service on the Inca Trail. Every year, new companies are presented to operate as tourist routes but recognized internationally. In general, the new companies agree with a dismissal of 1 to 2 years and after renewing the dismissal. There are also agencies that explore the Inca Trail for more than years. Like agencies but old we request a dismissal from 8 to 10 years. The old agencies usually have groups every day and guarantee your trip on the Inca Trail. These are the most recommended.
But 100 travel agencies did not obtain a license to explore the Inca Trail for this year. We include in this safe list of the most established and reputable tour operators based in Cusco. For more information, I have several recommendations, and we listen to our trips exploring Machu Picchu and are frequently featured with our best Peru travel guides, critical sites like Trip Advisor, and travel tips.
Before reserving your ticket for the Inca Trail, we recommend consulting our comments from the agency of each Trip Advisor. The business Each offers a different type of service. Some take large groups, others take small groups. The prices of the Inca Trail vary according to each tourism agency
Observation: All the travel agencies offer the service of Chemin Inca, even though they do not pass the authorization. Those who do not have permission are only conferred on their clients to the agencies that have a permit. It is not trustworthy to book with them.
