This was honestly the trip of a lifetime. While definitely challenging at times, it was such a rewarding journey and I am so glad that we chose to spend our vacation hiking the Inca Trail .
Juan and Victor were amazing guides, the cook was fantastic and all of the porters were incredible. I was initially worried about the difficulty of hiking the trail itself, the motto of the hike was 'slow and steady', and we were always encouraged to take our time.
I highly recommend hiking the trail for anyone who wants to visit Machu Picchu, it was an incredible journey.
