Booked the imperial inca trail, so we could walk on our own peace, and have the privilege having a private guide/team. We liked it a lot.
It was only the two of us, and our guide used to walk a few 100 m behind us, so we had the idea it was just us on the inca trail, at least for big parts, only climbing the dead womens pass it was a bit crowdy.
The porters/red army are fantastic, always having fun, and they make sure ypu are welcomed on arrival with an applause and a drink. We liked the idea that the porters functioned as a group, and not being on their own like most of the companies did.
Food was incredible, amounts huge, we didn't believe what they were able to make in primitive conditions. On day 3 we decided not to stay the nights in the campsite but continue directly to M.P. Because of the season chances for having a good view early in the morning were bad, and yu have to get up around 3. You can't sleep late while the porters have to go back to Cuzco on the first train. WE stayed the last night in a hostel in aguas calientes, think we payed 70€ extra for bus/hostel/food, but we were glad to do it like this. Another group told there were only clouds to see, while we had a good view at the sungate in the afternoon. Furthermore we had a real bed/shower etc, we only missed our porters/cook!
Would definitely book again with Llama path
