Which Company is Best

Hoping to do the Inca Trail next year, unsure which company is best thinking of maybe Exodus, Explore or Llama Travel. Any advice from people who have used these would be appreciated as getting bogged down with the amount of travel agents out there. Also is Colca Canyon worth a visit as well as Lake titicaca?

We used Llama Travel who are the agents for Condor travel in Peru and were very happy with the service. We traveled to Lima, Paracas, Cusco, MP, Puno, Lake Titicaca, Colca Canyon and Arequipa over 3 weeks. We took a couple of days in the middle to spend some time in Ollantaytambo, off tour, and arranged this ourselves. Llama travel were happy to adapt our tour to fit in with this. Every pick up and transfer ran exactly to time and the guides in each place were knowledgeable and well informed.

Decide where you want to go and have a chat with the tour operators, also get a quote as our quotes varied hugely!

We enjoyed our visits to Colca and Lake Titicaca, but it depends on how much time you have.

Spend a few days in Cusco or Ollantaytambo to get used to the altitude and don't rush things.

Enjoy your holiday!

Yes, time may be a problem, but Lake Titicaca and Colca Canyon are definitely worth seeing. We had a wonderful homestay at Taquile Island on Lake Titicaca, it was just beautiful! We trekked into Colca, but it would depend on the time you have. Have a look at our guide's website www.peruviancolcatrails.com which has a lot of different trips and gives you some more information. We really enjoyed our time there.
