What a fantastic adventure ! I would recommend this trip to anyone who is looking for a challenge and reasonably fit. Email correspondence with the reservation office was prompt and very helpful. Once I arrived in Cusco there was a meeting that explained the general scope of the trek and meet our guide.
Raul was a great guide, very fun and happy to answer our questions (no matter how ridiculous) about Peru, the trek and Incan culture. He kept us all entertained and encouraged us to be like family while we were on the trek. I feel grateful to have met my fellow trekkers and to have shared such a challenging and rewarding experience.
