There are at least 4 operators:
1.) Backpacker tours, support - run by a german businessman if you like and pay more to hang out with european couples in sports sandals.German-Venezuelan family
2.) Mystic tours - Apparently the oldest one. Good and cheap
3.) Marcos - great cook, slightly more expensive
4.) Francisco - good and cheap too.
There are a lot of Europeans on the trail. I did not see any Americans on the trip. There were some Venezuelans and mostly Germans, French and English tourists with ALL companies. In my humble opinion, German tourists are the worst degraders of the trail each carrying one porter or more per person.
There are 5 ways to do it:
Rates have recently increased so the rates below do not reflect actual rates. 1.) Fully ported, porters carry everything - check to see if everything includes sleeping bag, matress personal effects, etc. around 1450 2000 Bsf.
2.) Pay-to-be-a-porter, as above, but you carry 12 kgs. around 1150
3.) Self-equipped and -catered -700-800 bsf
