The Inca Trail was fantastic. The tour guide was very flexible, which was a good thing because I was a fast hiker and I've seen other groups walking in a line very slow and it didn't suit me.
With this guide and group I could do the Inca Trail on my own (with a friend). The food was ok, only lots of times dry rice with no sauce. However there was an excellent guide and good service. Every one of the porters and cooks was kind.
The trail was very beautiful and takes you to various landscapes. Second day, the hardest, but all easy if you are just a normal person.
