- The trip was excellent and I enjoyed every minute of it. The group was very friendly and supportive of one another except for one individual who I feel should not have been travelling in a group. This individual completely monopolised the only guide we had for most of the treck because he walked slowly and had great difficulty when descending mountains this meant he and the guide arrived at destinations and lunch breaks up to an hour later than the rest of us. The group were also deprived of the the extensive knowledge of the fauna, flora and history the guide had and we would have liked to discuss and ask questions about while walking.
We also had health issues while trecking, four of the group had to return to Cusco with severe gastro interstinal upset with one individual having to be admitted to hospital. Initially we were supposed to have two guides but after one had to return twice to Cusco with ill people he did not return for the last three days of the treck. Given the composition of the group and the presence of only one guide this could have been very dangerous if anyone in the main group ahead had any sort of accident or incident. I do not know if our excellent guide had requested another guide to be sent by Condor Travel.
