we are a French couple (32) and we have just made the Salkantay Trek with QE and all the trip was really well set up by the all team. As we were in trouble with our flight we were not able to do the briefing the day before our departure nevertheless, Wistman (the owner an ex Inca guide) in a very professionnal way, managed well our late departure. Hopefully, because we have benn preparing this trek since almost one year!
We did the trip with 3 very kind guys from QE team: Armandro our cooker, Honorato our horseman and with a special mention to our super "crazy" guide Juan!! All were very helpfull and did everything to make our trip very confortable. Amazing to see how Armandro was able to prepare a so tasty and so much food (the portions are really significant) and everyday, everything was ready to eat when we arrived from our daily stop.
Juan our guide is a very enthusiastic young man whith a real liking for learning and also for communicating his knowledge on Inca culture, believes and traditions but also on Peruvian way of life and on fauna. He has a real passion for his job for wich he does his best effort to communicate it. So, it was a real pleasure to live this trek with him.
The only inconvenient for QE Expeditions is the fact that all the price has to be paid by cash, so dangerous for tourists arriving in Cusco with such money! And it is also difficult to be able to have all the required amount with the Visa credit card (other tourists from QE have encountered the same issue than us), dued to max authorized amount per week.
Last remark, the tent are not for 4 people as mentionned on the website : they are for only 2 people (they are quite the same than the one we saw for other group with other tour operator).
