Now I'm in Argentina, wants to do the inca trail during June,
after ask for many agency in cusco, I have some good experience.
Maybe can share with you, specially you want to book the Inca trail in high season ( June, July) I think during low season, you don't need to book ahead, besides your trip to Cusco is very short, need to be good orginize.
1. book earlier ( trekking at June, july), and don't book the period during 20th June-25th June, casue the 24th June it's the sun festival in Cusco.
2. Email directly to the Travel Agency in Cusco, write in English, they all can reply you in english.
Here is all the list of the Travel Agency in Cusco
3. the cost of the tour during this year 2007, is around 480 usd to 250 usd(4d/3n tour). If you have ISIC student card, there will be about 25-30 usd discount. And make sure the price included the entrance of Machu Picchu.
4. Choose one then book, and pay the deposit. Normally they will ask you to transfer money instead pay by credit card. So you can ask them how to transfer money via Western Union, or by bank system. The deposit normally cost from the 30% to 50% trekking fee. Then when you arrive there, you pay the rest.
Ok, that's it. I've choose one tour agency, but I haven't trekking with them so can't tell you if it's good or not. I'll report back later.
And the attached file is one of the agency send to me, it explain very clearly about what you have to prepare. Hope this will help. But I didn't choose this Agency, cause their tour is very expensive.查看完整图文版
