- Well, where do I start?! Hector our leader was totally amazing, I am definately going to nominate him for the Explore Leader Competition. We had a large group of 18 ranging from singles, semi retired to honeymooners. The 30 porters and assistant leaders were so supportive during the inca trek, creating amazing food (ranging from soup & pancakes to a sponge cake and jelly!) The leaders encouraged everyone, and backed us up when we were feeling exhausted. The tents were comfortable, the food was amazingly varied, the scenery was breathtaking and everyone helped everyone.
The hostels were clean and simple and close to the town centre. Cuzco was fantastic with their month long celebrations of dance throughout June in their central square. The extension at Nape Lodge was exclusively for us (only 5 from our original group came on this part). We had Yuri the guide who took us piranha fishing, the cook served our successful catch for dinner. We were lucky enough to spot a jaguar, capybaras, caimen, parrakeets, wild river otters, woolly and capuchin monkeys, tarantulas and hundreds of other birds. I thoroughly recommend this trip for the adventurous spirits out there. Don't just read and dream about it, make it a reality and book it with Explore Worldwide. It will be the best thing you'll ever do!
