Q'ente Tour Company Feedback? suggestions

**I just posted this in the Cusco forum thinking I was posting it here***

Hello everyone!

I'm culling through the posts on here but some seem to old and some only just mention Q'ente.

I am going to Cusco in May and was all set to book with Peru Treks, after doing a ton of research. Unfortunately---after emailing them they are all booked for the dates I can go. I'm in grad school so my window is only three weeks.

All that said I'm looking for another company to go with. I would like any input folks have on Q'ente as well as other recommendations. I do not need luxury but I need competence. Also, I do worry about porter welfare and payment. I initially picked peru treks because of their involvement in the community as well as the info I heard about them paying their porters fair wages.

Finally, I would prefer to go with a local company.

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Megan

Thanks to you both. After much more research, I went with Llama Path and I'm all set to start on May 16. I'll check back in and let everyone know about my experience.

FYI---I was emailing with Peru Treks and they actually recommended Llama Path since I couldn't go with them on the dates I wanted. I thought that was really nice of them.

Yes, that was nice of them -- not everyone would have done that. I did find that on the Inca Trail, there seemed to be a lot of friendliness & cooperation between the porters & guides of different agencies. They all seemed like "buddies" instead of competitors.

see the new list of Inca Trail Local Tour Operator: machupicchu.gob.pe/items/Agencias2013.html

and some local recommended tour operator on TA:

tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g294314-Activiti…

choose the one who has more positive reviews and show proper camping equipment and threat the porter very well.
