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.

      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.
