Travel Insurance is mandatory and it’s a good idea to consult your doctor about altitude sickness. We start the tour in the Sacred Valley to help people acclimatise as it’s 500 meters lower or more than Cusco. Most people only suffer from initial breathlessness.
About the Single Supplement: Our policy is not to force people travelling alone to always pay a Single Supplement. If you would prefer to share with a same sex person in a twin room we will do our best to match you up with another tour participant. It cannot be guaranteed though. Let us know when booking if this is your preference.
