    Strikes are frequent in Peru and can disrupt our tours. Roads are often blocked and trains are stopped.

In these circumstances, tours may need to be cancelled, but our operations department will coordinate with you. Your safety is always our primary concern.

    Lost and Found:

    Each client is responsible for their belongings throughout the tour. Please be careful where you leave your items and remember to pick up all of your belongings from our mobility vehicles, stores, restaurants, etc. It is possible that other hikers or teams may pick them up without knowing who the owner is.
