Jose Antonio Cusi Camero served as our tour guide when we hiked the Inca trail in the spring of 2009. The tour we were on was a four-day trek from the beginning of the Inca trail to Machu Picchu. Jose was very informative about the Inca trail, the environment and the history of the Quechua people. During the trek, Jose went out of his way to stop and inform the group about the local people and customs as well as the history surrounding some of the structures. He was quite fluent in English, which helped us tremendously as we spoke very little Spanish. His “History Lessons” were quite informative and helped us appreciate both present day Peru as well as the long history of the region.
He and his crew met our every need on the trail and in camp, we couldn’t have asked for a better guide. He gladly accommodated us by taking pictures of us along the way as well as in Machu Picchu. When some of our fellow hikers forged ahead, Jose stayed back with us to make certain we were all right.
He was also very encouraging when the hike got into the tougher parts, and urged us on when we needed that little extra push. Overall, we would highly recommend Jose Antonio Cusi Camero. He is an intelligent, hard working individual who takes pride in his job. Jose met all of our needs beyond our expectations and we would highly recommend his services.
