Yes, the cost of hiring the mule driver and mules is always the most expensive part of a trek in Bolivia. All of the treks you've mentioned are doable independently.
In fact, I actually hired a local arriero for the Apolobamba trek, though you can do it alone without any assistance. By the way, Condoriri to HP base camp to El Cumbre, Takesi, and one around Mt Illiampu can be done independently.
If you do want to do Apolobamba trek with a guide, there is a great arriero at the coop named Javi, who charges $25 a day for himself and 2 horses.
