We booked our Machu Picchu hike a month prior to our trip through a company called Llama Path. We thought that would be plenty of time to reserve our space but the Inca Trial was full so we had the option of doing several alternative treks.
The hike was moderate to advance but you can go at your own pace. We had 6 people in our group, 3 of who are experienced hikers and went at a brisk pace while the other 2 kept a more casual pace and took time to snap lots of photos.
