My partner and I did the 4 day/3 night Inca Trail tour with Incaland Adventures. It is hard to pick a tour company, as there are so many on offer, but I chose Incaland based on its excellent reviews. We were not disappointed. The best part was that Flavio guarantees your tour once it is booked, regardless of how many (or few) join the tour. I booked a 'group tour' for the two of us, and we ended up being the only ones on our tour, with one guide, a cook and 5 porters. All staff seemed very happy in their job, which is a good indication their working conditions are good.
As suggested by Flavio, we followed a slightly different itinerary than what most companies follow, which meant we weren't dealing with as many tourists on the hike. The food and service was excellent, very comfortable tents and an informative and professional guide. Flavio was also an excellent point of contact prior to the trip, informative and prompt in getting back to me.
I guess the only drawback is the price - it is one of the more expensive companies, especially because the trip is quoted in US dollars, but you have to pay the balance in Peruvian pesos, at a rate of 3 pesos to one US dollar. When you do your calculations, this means you pay more than expected (based on the actual exchange rate of the day). So, my advice is do the calculations before you book, based on a conversion of 3 to 1. However, despite the cost, we were still extremely happy we went with Incaland Adventures - the Inca Trail is such an amazing trek, and in our opinion it's worth paying a bit more as it ensures the experience will be great!
