Incredible experience!

Brilliant trek to Machu Picchu. Carlos and co were fantastic tour guides, remaining cheerful when we weren't! The porters are super-human. How they carry all of that gear whilst cheerfully skipping up steep mountains and down steeper stairs is incredible. While Machu Picchu is truly amazing, the trek there is even better. In the words of Carlos, there are several ... Continue Reading
