I arrived with the sun blazing down and the clouds and mist lifting from Machu Picchu. It was a truly magical moment. And then there was Percy, my guide. What a delightful, interesting, knowledgeable and expert guide. It really was a pleasure to be with him. I really couldn't have asked for a better guide and team. This was one of the best treks I have ever done.
