Please Note: to tip to the porters is a personal decision and it is optional.

WHAT HAPPENED IF I GET SICK DO I NEED TO TURN BACK?

We have a very low rate of people turning back once on the trek. Our priority is to help you complete it; all our guides are properly trained and carry a first aid kit and a bottle of oxygen for emergencies. Please do not think about this, be positive mind and definitely you are in good hands.
In the exceptional case that a trekker decides to head back once they have started the trek, they must pay additional expenses such as food, lodging and transportation. On the last day the tourist will be able to rejoin the group and participate in the Machu Picchu tour.

No refund will be given.

What KIND OF MONEY is used in Peru?
