Mike Bruijns (Netherlands): "Well worth it"
The Inca Trail was challenging for me. I had some problems with the altitude. I was comforted by our guide that it was no competition, and that I had to take time to rest whenever I felt needing them.
Not all toilets were clean. I know that might be too much to ask, but at one time our guide got one of the porters to clean them extra. We gave that porter extra tip.
The food was amazing. Compliments to the chef for the variety in meals. I loved that we had traditional dishes too, what a great way to get to know the Peruvian kitchen
The equipment was good. Tents were comfortable, though I was lucky to have one for myself. I slept surprisingly well after a bad camping experience last year.
Personally I liked that the group only existed of 8 people. Everything is just a little more efficient. We really felt like family afterwards.
The porters have been working so hard, which is much appreciated. They were well organized. Everything was set up when we arrived at the camp (or we were slow, haha). They were running up and down the mountains and always had time for a smile.
Our guide, made this Inca Trail unforgettable. He was supportive, patient, funny and competent. He was always able to tell us stories about the Inca´s, the mountains or the animals living there. He has a fun way of getting you through this challenge, which is a talent if you ask me. He didn´t forget about the porters, introducing them to us and the other way around. One couple was married for one year on the last day, and he didn´t forget about that. The chef and his team made a cake especially for them, which was very special.
All in all it was an unforgettable experience. Waking up early was no problem, because I knew what I did it for. The organization and the people made it very special. This is was the reason I also booked my jungle excursion with Dos Manos Travel Agency in Cusco. Had a wonderful time at the Lodge. It was such a pleasure to spend a few days in a small part of the Amazone.
I have met various people again, and had a great time trekking, watching animals, feeding caiman and so many more things! Well worth it!! Thank you very much I will never forget!!
