Overall, it was absolutely fantastic! Javier, our guide, was phenomenal and truly gave a whole new life to the trip. Having previously worked for an outdoors company, I know how much organization and logistical planning goes into each trip, and Javier executed everything perfectly. He knew the terrain, knew the country, was obviously extremely experienced, and had a great attitude towards trekking.
The food in Peru, as well as the entire team (horseman etc) were absolutely fabulous. I looked forward to every single meal!
