Walking the Inca Trail and visiting Machu Picchu has been a long time dream of mine. I was not disappointed. We had a good briefing which covered the necessities of our hike and gave us the necessary information. However, we would have appreciated knowing about the weight limits in advance. It would have helped us plan better.
The walk itself was fantastic. We had a supporting group of porters that are amazing. They carry an incredible amount of packing but where still always well ahead of us. Passing us on the trail they where always cheerful and smiling. Well, in the camp they received us with large smiles and a cup of strengthening juice which was appreciated.
The food was, under the circumstances, well above expectations. Enjoying cooking myself I was amazed at what the cook could create for the entire group in the middle of nowhere. We even had a cake which I am still wondering how he did. Our guides where very supportive, informed and also did a good job of making sure the group would arrive safely and together.
All in all I had a fantastic experience and I think it will be hard to top this. Thank you!
