Frequently Asked Questions

Who can travel to Peru?

Healthy people of all ages are able to enter Peru with either proof of covid vaccination or proof of negative covid test within 72 hours of boarding the origin flight to Lima. Rapid antigen tests are not accepted. Check with your international airline as they are the gatekeepers of travel documents. Peru has been reviewing their covid restrictions at least once or twice every month since March 2021. We try to stay up to date and keep our groups notified if there are changes that affect their trips. It is up to each traveler to reconfirm the arrival protocols before they travel. 

What About High Altitude in Cusco?

Cusco is about 11,000 ft / 3350 m above sea level. Unless you are hiking, our tours are designed for people coming from sea level. You do not need to add extra days. Travelers who are planning to hike the easy 2-Day Inca Trail or other multi-day hikes should allow at least 2 days to acclimatize in Cusco. We can organize guided tours, or other activities to take advantage of this time to explore. Everyone is advised to drink extra water before arriving in Cusco to reduce the affects of high altitude. 

What you Need to Know About Passport Expiration Dates

The most important thing to do before planning a trip abroad is to check the expiration date of your passport. Passports are essential for buying entry tickets to Machu Picchu, train tickets and especially permits to hike the Inca Trail. Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months arrive your arrival date in Peru. If you plan to renew your passport it's essential that you tell us at the time you make your reservation. With advance notice, we can plan around travelers who need to renew their passports.
