I survived the Inca Trail

I survived the Inca Trail and have the t-shirt to prove it.
The trail was amazing, so much more that I ever imagined. I was always focused on the end, Machu Picchu. But we saw so many wonderful inca sites and views along the way that the whole adventure is something I will never forget.
We hiked in the hot sun, the rain, the little tiny bugs that savaged our legs and left nasty red bites. We struggled up steep passes, going so slowly you can't imagine, but it was so hard at altitude to breathe.
The porters and cook were amazing. They gave us breakfast, lunch tea and dinner in the dining tent, table laid each time. Then as we hiked off they dismantled it and rushed past us to the next spot and set it all up again. Even though they carried 25 kg, they laughed and smiled as they went.   They brought us a bowl of warm water morning and evening to our tents to wash, it was such a wonderful service. 
Our group was wonderful and we had so much fun even during the really tough parts of the trail.  The tour leader was amazing, always positive and so passionate about the history of each site. He would brief us at breakfast about the day ahead, and at dinner would give us details of what to expect the next day.
An amazing experience all round, and I will never forget the trail or the people.
I would highly recommend Explore and will definitely be travellinng with them again.
