Quoting Gitan Jean

Hi, Sandy, thanx for the information! The fact that the guides are not fluent English is not a problem, on the countrary, I would prefer to speak Spanish. And than how do you know the porters would be paid less? Did you ask them?
Anyway, has anyone done the Trail with All Treck Cuzco? And was it any good?

I'm not familiar with All Trek Cusco, bit I will say that it is best to stick with the more reputable and larger tour companies when dealing with the Inca Trail.

How will you know the porters are being paid less? If the price seems too good to be true when compared with other tour operators... chances are the porters aren't being treated very well.

Porter abuse is definitely an issue when doing the Inca Trail, and it is hard work... it is a shame that so many small trekking companies take advantage of these people.

Do a search on this site, as well as TripAdvisor and Lonely Planet's community site to do research on any tour companies you come across. You can typically find good information.

Another thing to keep in mind :
the companies who treat their porters well will advertise it, as it's a selling advantage for them.
I'm planning on doing the Inca trail just before it closes, and Lama path and Peru trek seem to be the most ethical companies from what i've collected so far.
