- Hector, the tour leader was outstanding. His care, attention to detail and enthusiasm were inspirational. He is an outstanding asset to Explore.
The Inca trail delivered everything it promised and the standard of food and accomodation during the trek were very high. The Hotel in Cusco was poor - we spent a lot of time there and the lack of any bar / lounge facilities fragmented the group (everyone was confined to sitting reading books in their bedroom). The hotel we stayed in at Cusco was not the one listed on the trip notes and looking on-line suggests that it was a very poor substitute.
The hotel in the jungle had only cold showers (again this was not stated in the trip noted). It was cold and wet when we were there and the cold showers were unpleasent. Added to that, there was no electricity till 5pm which meant that (because it was dark and rainy outside) meant that our room was too dark to even read a book after 3pm. We literally had to sit and wait of the lights. I am sure they could have started the generator an hour earlier on wet days!!
