    A wonderful trip! I had a great time. They still ran the tour, even though I was the only one to sign up; they placed me with a different company for the actual hike portion so I wasn't the only person participating for the multi-day trek

Frequently Asked Questions

    • When and where does the tour end?

      This tour concludes with a free morning to relax at Tandapata Boutique Hotel (or similar) in Cusco and in the afternoon you will be transferred to the airport for your departure to Lima. It's time to say goodbye to your new friends and continue your separate ways! Please be aware the hotel is subject to change until your final documents are released.

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Airport transfers are included in this tour, please contact our customer support team for more information.

    • When and where does the tour start?

      The first day of this tour generally starts from Tandapata Boutique Hotel or similar in Cusco and as the first day is just an arrivals day you can arrive at any time. At the terminal, keep your eyes open for the staff of Inkayni Peru Tours, as they pick you up from the airport and take you to their partner lodge. The morning is reserved for resting or free time, however, in the afternoon you will visit the Inca Museum, which is the home of thousands of years of Andean culture so we recommend arriving beforehand. Please note that the joining point is subject to change until your final documents are released.

    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Of course, we can! Once you have a confirmed booking on this tour, we can request additional accommodation for you with the tour operator.

    • What is the age range?

      This tour has an age range from 5 to 70 years old. Unfortunately, this means that small children under the age of 5 and more mature travellers above the age of 70 are not eligible to participate in this tour.

    • I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

      If you are travelling alone on this tour, a mandatory single supplement will be added to the tour price, please contact our customer support team for more information.

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      All accommodations are subject to change until 4-6 weeks before the departure date. After the booking is made you will be issued your final trip documents with your specific accommodation details. This is a list of accommodations that they typically stay at, but please be advised that they are subject to change:

      Cusco Tandapata Boutique Hotel (3-star) or similar
      Campside
      Aguas Calientes Hatun Samay Hotel (3-star) or similar

      Hopefully, this list will give you a better idea of what kind of accommodation you can expect while on tour.

    • Are the flights included?

      Flights before and after the tour are not included in the tour price and you need to arrange these separately by yourself once your tour is guaranteed. As we specialise in organising the best tours around the world for you, we are unable to advise on flight prices or book flights on your behalf. If you have not already booked your flights we recommend checking out the following link which is powered by Skyscanner - https://flights.tourradar.com
