With the new regulations introduced in 2001, only officially sanctioned travel operator are permitted to organize group treks along the Inca Trail. With the higher-end agencies, it is usually possible to assemble your own private group with as few as two hikers. Budget trekkers will join an established group. In addition to cost, hikers should ask about the group (10 or fewer is best), the quality of the guides and their English-speaking abilities, the quality of food preparation, and porters and equipment. You should also make certain that the Tierras Vivas tour operator guarantees daily departures, so your´re not stuck waiting in Cusco for a group to be assembled.
