Advice Please!


I am trying to organise a trip for 6 of us to Peru in May 14. 3 of us would like to do a 4 day Inca Trail and 3 of us a 2 day trail. We are not bothered about arriving at the Sun Gate for Dawn and would prefer a later start on the last day. It would be perfect if we could arrange to be on trips that both use the same campsite on the last night so that all 6 of us could arrive at Machu Picchu together. We would like to then spend the rest of the day there before staying locally overnight and going back early next morning.

We would also like to use a company that provides personal porters to carry our kit.

Has anyone any experience of a company that could meet our needs?

I've looked at lots of websites but can't work out anything that seems to cover all that!

If it's not possible we will just have to accept it but, I'd never hear the end of it if we find out when we get there we could have had what we wanted but having booked something else it's too late!

I know I'm asking a lot but if you don't ask......

Many thanks for reading all that

Th 2 day Inca Trail is basically one day on the Inca Trail and spending the night in AC before going to MP the next day. No camping.
