I couldn’t recommend this company more.
I was attempting to book the Inca trail in December for May with various companies and was disappointed to find that there was no availability. However, I was surprised to receive an email from Miguel in January informing me that the government were selling another 20 or so permits the next day, and whether or not I still hoped to do the Inca trail. Thanks to their organisation and attentiveness I was able to secure a place and do a much dreamed of hike!
A couple of days before the hike Miguel came over to have a chat, to ensure I understood what would happen in terms of the hike and the preparation. He was very friendly and ensured I was completely prepared.
In terms of the actual hike, I loved it. Rudi was a brilliant guide, ensuring everyone was comfortable with the pace and being constantly supportive. He was also very knowledgable and his enthusiasm was infectious. Their treatment of the porters is brilliant, having been porters themselves before. They’re provided with their own tents and good equipment. Also, they’re one of the few companies with female porters, ensuring everyone is given equal opportunity.
You need not worry about food, with plenty being provided and all delicious. I kept wanting to ask the recipes! Even if you’re vegetarian or vegan they have options for all.
Although this company is more pricey then some, you really do get your money’s worth, from the quality of food and equipment to the information and support.
