I had heard about this trek from a friend of mine who had done this trip several years ago. She really enjoyed the Salkantay trek and highly recommended Inca Trail Reservations / Salkantay.Org. We picked the 8 day package and were helped online and by phone by Mabel who got us lined up very efficiently.
Our guide was Carlos Perez who was excellent. He spoke great English and really helped us understand the plant life, scenic vistas and Inca history. The hike was challenging as we went over 15,200 feet elevation and the scenery was spectacular. The food on the trek was really outstanding and I enjoyed every meal as there was much variety and I am a novice to Peruvian cuisine.
Overall a fantastic experience that was reasonably priced. I highly recommend this adventure !
