Hi, I'm planning to hike the Classic 5-day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu starting June 21st, 2020. Already settled on which company to use for the private guided hike. Need one or more to join to meet the minimum of 2 travelers to book a private guided hike on any given date at a pretty reasonable rate. Each traveller can have a private overnight tent. Be happy to share more details.

Five days? The Classic Inca Trail is four days - unless you're doing a different version?!

You spend 4 days on the Classic trail but not visit Machu PIcchu on the 4th day; instead stay the fourth night in a hotel, and tour the Machu PIcchu on the morning of the 5th day. Supposedly, you can spend the extra time at other ruins on your way to Machu PIcchu.

Nice! You still get the Sun Gate but miss all the crowds - brilliant! When we arrived there on the fourth day we also had a ticket to climb Huayna Picchu which was pretty exhausting after the previous days - a day's rest would have been perfect. Enjoy!
