Discover the top local tour companies for visiting Machu Picchu. Only officially sanctioned travel agencies are permitted to organize group treks along the Inca Trail; at least 160 tour
operators () have been granted government licenses to sell and operate Inca Trail treks. 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 group size (12 or fewer is best; 16 is the most allowed), 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 agency guarantees daily departures.
