CANCELLATION BY US:

We may cancel a trip at any time prior to departure if, due to terrorism, natural disasters, political instability or other external events it is not viable for us to operate the planned itinerary.

If we cancel your trip, you can transfer amounts paid to an alternate departure date or receive a full refund.  In circumstances where the cancellation is due to external events outside our reasonable control refunds will be less any unrecoverable costs.  We are not responsible for any incidental expenses that you may have incurred as a result of your booking including but not limited to visas, vaccinations, and travel insurance excess or non-refundable flights.

 

STUDENT DISCOUNTS:

To get a discount as student, you must send us a ‘JPEG’ scan of your valid ISIC card. If you cannot provide us with a scan of your ISIC card within 2 days after your booking we will charge you the standard adult price.

When you come to Peru, you MUST bring the ISIC card and take it with you for the tours as it will be checked several times by government officials.

If you forget your ISIC card or lose it then there is a risk that you may not be allowed as Student and then, you will have to pay the difference.

The worst would be if you book as student and you don´t bring the ISIC card; in this case you could be turned away at the start of the trek.

 

CHILD DISCOUNTS:

Peruvian government regulation indicates that children under 16 years pay the 50% of the general entrance fees to the tourist attractions. Therefore to get a discount as a child, you must send us a scan of your child’s passport (page containing photo and date of birth); if you cannot provide us with a scan of your child’s passport within 2 days after your booking we will charge you the standard adult price for your child.

 

PASSPORT AND VISAS:

You must carry a valid passport and have obtained all of the appropriate visas; (some countries are exonerated and don´t need VISA to enter to Peru). Your passport must be valid for 6 months beyond the duration of the trip. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are in possession of the correct visas, permits and certificates for your trip.  We are not responsible if you are refused entry to a country because you lack the correct passport, visa or other travel documentation.

 

ILLNES or DISABILITY:

Anyone suffering from illness or disability or undergoing treatment for any physical or medical condition must declare the true nature of such condition at the time of booking and make arrangements for the provision of any medication and/or other treatment which may be required during the tour. Failure to make such disclosure will constitute a breach of these booking conditions and result in such persons being excluded from the tour in this case all money paid will be forfeited.
