I wanted to put out something for the trekkers by the trekkers and have come up with this innovative market niche. An idea that has evolved over many years, hearing from a lot of people wanting to do some trail exploration NOT TOURS in the Sacred Valley without carrying a lot of gear on them. People who were wanting nothing more than simple day hikes without going looking for agency tours to find them. That said, anyone that is more independent but short of time to explore to find the places will potentially see this as the perfect happy-medium. As will those who are wanting a bit of like-minded company along the way and those who still want their experience to be challenging yet without getting technical. I dare you to find anything better than this!!!
