Wow, we just got home from a mid-april 5day/4 night hiking/camping trek on the salkantay. Everything went SMOOTH. The paperwork and e-mail correspondence with Best Peru Tours (Joyce) was very thurough. All meetings, pickups, and schedules went excellent and puctual. I can’t rave over Reuben, our guide, enough. He is a genuine, caring man with top notch character. He comes from an outfit named “camping tours”, but whoever matched us up with him did great! All of the employees that worked to make this trip happen did a really good job. Reuben speaks 4 or 5 languages and has been guiding people for over 15 years. I saw many, many guides and local places in cusco that would take you, probably even cheaper, but I’d ask for Reuben and let his demeanor and experience get you through. Again, its how we were matched up. If you are 20-30 then get a young cocky guide. I’d say anyone over 40 would enjoy having Reuben calmly escort them on this journey, a hear a few after dinner stories that he has amassed over the years. My bottom line advise….use this company! and even ask for some of the people I mentioned. You’ll have good memories to look back on. Remember you don’t go to another country and do something like this expecting it to be like “home”!
