My trip on the Inca Trail was fantastic in no part due the great efforts of Inca Trail Reservations and their exceptional team of porters,band guides.
As someone on the fence about the entire trip I cannot recommend their services highly enough; their staff of guides were extremely well versed and experienced.
The camping experience was well worth the added expense as food, lodgings and the option of additional porters was a substantial addition to the hike at large. For the trip itself, the experience was grueling, but rewarding.
The views of the Andes were genuinely once in a life time, the Incan ruins belonged rightfully on postcards and the satisfaction of a safe arrival at a wonder of the world is beyond words.
