"OFFICIAL INCA TRAIL TOUR OPERATOR"
The offering of the Inca Trail by a tour operator must be previously checked since many operators are not credited to offer this route because they lack all the permissions granted by govermental institutions. So with the aim of getting you aware of the Tour Operators that fill all the requirements for giving a proper service on the Inca Trail, next we let you know the listing of the 183 operators approved and authorized by the three institutions the I.N.C.,(Culture National Institute) SERNANP (Natural Resources Institute) and DIRCETUR (Regional Direction on Exterior Commerce and Tourism of Cusco) which comprise the U.G.M (Unity of Gestion of the Historical Sanctuary of Machu Picchu) that grants the licenses for providing the Inca Trail service. Great care has to be taken when choosing a tour operator since many companies have great looking websites but operate out of a bedroom on the outskirts of Cusco!! There are really only a handful of reliable tour operators that offer the Inca Trail with fixed-date departures throughout the year.
