Hi everyone

Has anybody done the Inca Trail with this company All Trek Cusco

They are the cheapest I've found so far, and I'm really interested to hear what they are like.

Thanks,

E

Hiya... I donĀ“t know All Trek, but I used Pachamama Explorers agency located in Cusco. I thought there service was very good and their price was very competitive for what they offered. I paid $280 with them and have no complaints! Maybe you can check them out, their website is www.pmexplorers.com

Enjoy your trip!

Hi Samsara

I've jsut been in Cuzco for three weeks. First i hated the city because of all the hazzling and second because the tours were horrible expensive compared with Patagonia were it's free. Anyway i was offered this 5 day trip (not inkatrail but a secondary also endning up in Machu Pichu) one day more than the inca trail, and for 180 dollars. I can't remember the agency but it was in the middle of the square and had pink flyers.
Another funny story, was this guy on an irish pub bragging about how much they cheated the turists and especially people from Israel. It made me furius and he appoligies with that they cheated the israellian people more. Be on you marks when you order a trip at one of the agencys.
I hope that you will enjoy the Cuzco trip more than i did, and remember to tight your party belt the city i crazy at night.

Hey Samsara2,
We too have been in touch with Alltrek in Cuzco via email. First impressions are they seem professional enough. I am planning on doing the Inca trail around the first week in Nov, so will keep you posted on progress, have you had any further thoughts are the company?

Hi Everett,

Thanks for the tips! ;) I'll keep my eyes and ears open when I'm there.

Crzysteve,

I would really appreciate if you would let me know how you get on in November. I'll be doing the trek in January, but I'll hold off booking for a while yet. Hope you have a great time with them! :)

hi
i would advise not booking ahead unless you in the middle of high season.i,m irish so alittle gung ho in these matters. i got mine for 175dollars(carry euros though). people on the same trek had paid 340 and up. do check for when the taxs go up on it though. and its fantastic dont listen to all the 'real' backpackers talking about the newly discovered trails thats not true.
dont pay for drinks in cuzco.your irish youll figure it out!!

good tip though: ask for add ons to bargin with like white water rafting(in january itll be 4's+) horse riding around the ruins or bus tickets.

thanks for the tips john. i'll keep them in mind.

I fully intend to pay for my drinks in Cuzco and anywhere else in South America. The least I can do is support the local economy when I'm a guest there ;) Just my opinion.

YOu sound like you've really been around South America :)

Any words of wisdom for an Irish girl going it solo?

Thanks,

Ev

Hi Ev,
Hi,
In mid-March of this year my wife and I did a weekend trip to Machu Picchu with a tour operator in Cuzco and they were very good and very professional.
We didn't do the Inca Trail (return train from Cuzco and night in hotel in Aguas Calientes instead for us old farts) which our tour operator organised, and they were very good and very professional.
They had an English girl on staff which really helped, and the pickups at hotel and railway station were extremely well planned.
They are called Llama Path and their website is www.llamapath.com.
Their office is a very short walk from Cuzco' main plaza at 250 San Juan de Dios.
I have a problem getting into their website, but they have Inca Trail groups and quite a few other tours around there.
Whoever you go with, enjoy.

Anthony

P.S. We climbed Huanya Picchu mountain at the back of Machu Picchu on our first day there. Bugger of a climb but the views are awesome!!
