There are a dizzying number of tour guides in Cuzco. After researching the various options we chose Apus Peru and were not disappointed. They don't sugar coat any aspect of the trek. You will know what you are getting into. Expect the unexpected every step of the way: that is what adventure is all about. For example; we had rain on 5 of the 7 days we hiked and this was the "dry season". Our trek was drastically altered when one of the contracted muleteers backed out of his commitment. Apus Peru came to the rescue and came up with alternate plans that allowed us to see the major sites we expected to view and added others we didn't expect to visit. Our guide, Jose, struck the perfect balance of being there when we needed him, yet not becoming overbearing. Joseph was our cook and he was nothing short of amazing. Delicious food with a great variety and still he met our somewhat peculiar dietary requirements. The rapport the staff has established with the local villagers was clearly evident. Our chance to interact with Peruvians living in remote mountain locations was at least as thrilling as seeing the famous archeological sites. We were impressed by the depth of respect that employees of Apus Peru demonstrated for the environment, the cultural heritage of Peru, and the people who live along the trails we hiked. This was by far the most physically demanding trip I have ever taken. It was worth the effort. It was worth the expense. Apus Peru was first class from beginning to end.
