To begin, the porters, guides and hikers were all amazing. A big thank you to each and every one of them. Day one of the trek was reasonably simple, however day two was a killer. Seeing the porters fly past you and having the guides there to cheer and lead you on was absolutely amazing.
Our guide Gerson was incredibly knowledgeable of not only the Machu Picchu but the several sites we saw along the way. A special thank you to him! I had an issue with my passport starting the trek and both guides thankfully sorted it for me. I wouldn't have been able to go without them.
In closing the food, hike, porters, guides, scenery, weather were all fantastic and if you are contemplating the four day hike, get to the gym to train because it's a challenge.
