The 4 day Inca Trail was everything that was promised and so much more! We had the Inca Trail as our last adventure in our trip around South America, and of course, we had high expectations. People will scare you about how hard it is and how the second day is just horrible. Don't let that scare you, as the guides will take you to the top at your own pace without problems. Also, don't under estimate going down the same amount of altitude. Your knees will notice the workout at the end of the third day.
All in all, the scenery will be more amazing than the postcards in tourist shops will show, and the food is better than you can imagine. The guide will give you a complete package of information about every Inca site visited along the way, as well as some funny jokes every now and then. I couldn't have been happier about the trek as a whole!
