Dimetrio our porter was excellent, very friendly and respectful: Julio the drive was friendly and safe. We only did the hike from km104 but it was perfect in every way. C His unbelievable knowledge and respect for the culture and history really made it a perfect trip. The 1-day hike was challenging in parts, as expected, but Chino always made sure we were safe and happy. Every part was perfect. Winay Wayna Sungate and Machu Picchu were all mind-blowing. Thank you Chino for making my wife 50th birthday the best ever and showing my sons a perfect example of a passionate and hard worker.
Our guide was a very knowledgeable, warm, charismatic individual whose company we enjoyed.
The highlight was the Inca Trail, especially when we had it to ourselves. We had a superb time due to organisation and guides
I was astounded by the varied meny and what the cook produced. The personnel were all friendly, polite and very good at their jobs. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly with a sense of humour, professional at all times. He instilled confidence. Choquequirao was a little harder than expected due to the altitude. Everyday was an experience/ an adventure. All our sense were stimulated.
Chino was so amazing. By the end of the trek we felt that we had made a great friend, he was so kind, intelligent and polite and was just great with our teenage children. We went 9km and told Chino we wanted to go really fast to challenge ourselves. We made the trek in about 3 hours instead of 5. We were very happy. The difficult initial ascent from km104 was a very vigorous trek which we loved. The ruins Winay Wayna were magical and the amazing flowers, ferns, moss and vines were the best. I loved it all except the scary bus ride down from Machu Picchu to the train station. Next time I will trek down.
