A great 4 days on the Inca Trail , tough but great! The food was excellent, the guide both funny and informative and the group was a good mix of age and ability.

The first day was a nice "break-in" day with a few hours trekking, some stops at a couple of archaeological sites and a lovely lunch.

The second day was the tough day with a 4 hour climb up to Dead Woman's Pass. You could definitely feel the air getting thinner as you climb. However we were all cheering each other on to reach the top. A trek down some steps to the camp site and we had the rest of the day to recover!

The third day was the toughest, 95% of it downhill and going through varying climates so it was humid as well as hot. We stopped at a few more sites before finally getting to the campsite.

The fourth, and last, day was the easiest, a short walk round to the Sun Gate before descending down to Machu Picchu for a guided tour around the city.

Overall a great experience and one I would definitely recommend!!
