We did Choquequirao trek in November 2015 independently, without any guide or porter, the trek isn't difficult, the trail is easy to follow. We did it in 6 days, spent 3 days/2 nights at the ruins and really enjoyed it! Unspoilt place, beautiful scenery, no...More

Hi, By guided, do you mean you hired mules and guide but planned your meals, tents, etc. or you booked a full tour with everything included? For the former, we payed $50 per day for the guide and $50 per mule.
