Additional Info
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • Not wheelchair accessible
  • Please book this tour 1 month in advance, especially in high season (June-September) due to very high demand.
  • Please bring your original passport for the tour (in case they want to see it at the entrance to Machu Picchu)
  • The seats in the train are chosen by the train company itself; there is no possibility to influence your seat from our side, but you will be sitting next to each other.
  • In the case of flight delays, inconveniences with the train schedule or bad weather (rain, landslides, etc.) we do not assume any responsibility, but your travel insurance most likely will offer coverage for these cases. This also holds for the airport pickup. The driver arrives 5 minutes after your arrival and waits up to 25 minutes outside on the parking lot when leaving the building (with a sign and your name on it). In case of any delays, you’ll have to get to your hotel on your own as the driver has to continue with his work. For any refund on this service, please claim it with your airline.
