INCA TRAIL 5D/4N
The internationally renowned classic trail of the Incas leading you to one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, the Quechua Citadel of Machu Picchu, re-discovered for the western world by Hiram Bingham III in 1911 with the guidance of local indigenous farmers. Take the trail over a slower paced 5 days, camp at the quieter less visited Phuyapatamarca, arrive at the sungate after all the queues, then with excited anticipation, look forward to your full afternoon tour on the 5th day after a restful night in a hotel.
" I wanted to thank you both so much for such an amazing time. The entire trip so exceeded my expectations. The service was top notch. All of the small touches were perfect. I think I'd mentioned in some initial feedback that we did miss our champagne. Other than that, I don't anything could have made it more perfect. Marcial really is a perfect guide. We were so lucky to have had him on our trek. His knowledge of the history, people and culture really added to our experience. He was great at preparing us as well as continually encouraging us along the way. Mayra too was awesome - running a tight ship. So personable and knowledgeable. They both really added a tremendous amount to our entire trip. Another standout.. Claudio... what a gem.. He's so smart with such initiative. With his smile and vest on, he was always attentive and happy to work with us. I'm not sure when and how it was planned, but I was surprised with a birthday celebration. It was so touching and definitely a highlight of the experience. Who knew that a birthday cake cooked in a pan over a flame could taste so good (throughout the trip the food was really amazing). The birthday party really took it over the top, so I thank whoever planned that part. Again, everything exceeded my expectations. While it was the hardest thing physically that I've ever done in my life, it will forever be one of the most memorable moments. Truly an amazing birthday.
