- The trip is accurately described in Explore literature, moderate to challenging! Read the advice they give carefully and follow it. Loved Cusco, camping facilities and meals during the trek were very good, scenery was beautiful. Guide Nilton was EXCELLECT and assistant Andy looked after some people who were not feeling well. Both were very knowledgable and accommodating.
We did the Amazon extension and accommodations were very good. Logistics for the entire trip were excellent. Recommend arriving in Cusco early and be prepared for climbing, since very little of the trek is level or smooth. Also, take the insects seriously, especially on the first day of the Inca trail trek. Finally, the highlight of the trip was the sense of accomplishment and 12 new great friends.
