The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu was a physical test and the final exam was the last day. We all passed this test and were rewarded by an excellent view of Machu Picchu from the Sun Gate. Waking up at 3 am was well worth it knowing that the end of the four day hike was near.
The food was excellent and the guides were very knowledgeable. I would recommend them without a doubt. I learned a lot about the Inca culture during the hike. The Inca ruins along the route were as amazing as the final destination Machu Picchu !
