on Inca Trail Trek

Great comments in here, and all true. My wife and I did a private trip with Apamayu Expeditions. They were first class. The trek was difficult at times and tough on the knees, but conditioning ahead of time, time at altitude in Cusco before setting off, and any advance stair work you can do will pay off in spades.

As for the crowds at Machu Picchu, our guide was brilliant. We took off on day four later than all the big groups who were in a rush to get to sun gate. By getting there we’ll after the morning bus groups had arrived, we were able to avoid the big bus tour groups as they had already moved down. The bus folks in the morning have to leave before the afternoon group is my understanding. We had the Inka bridge mostly to ourselves.

Hope this helps someone. Definitely worth doing, good luck.
