Pepe is a wonderful leader - kind, enthusiastic, thoughtful, funny, energetic, always interested, very generous with information, and so keen to share his love for the mountains, Lima and Peru. He has great people skills and is clearly a great manager too, as nothing went wrong. Pepe always goes the extra mile - e.g. organising a lovely massage for those who wanted it at the end of the trek. You can tell Im a fan!
Our local guide Roger was wonderful too - very calm, kind and considerate of everyone. And I really miss him coming to my tent at 6am with a cup of hot tea!
Take your own mat if you have a good one as those they provide are not great and some leaked.
The nights are very cold - a good down sleeping bag and down jacket for mornings and evenings make it a lot better. Down mittens also help
Dont bother with baby wipes etc - you get hot water twice a day, enough for a quick wash!
My main advice is...get booked on it!
As as solo traveller really enjoyed the trek, but I was glad I had decided not to share a tent as it was nice to have some time alone and space to pack and sort stuff out each night.
