1. I am just one person, can I join some group tour?
Yes, you can, we have departures every day, feel free to decide when to go.
2. We don’t like to go in a big group, can we arrange a private tour?
Yes you can, our group tours go with 10 or 15 people, but if you want, you can also arrange a private tour, we have different rates for it depending on how many people you are.
3. I will travel with my family, we have two 65 YO people, do you think, can they make it?
We had people on this tour from 65 and 70 YO, the tour is not hard, but you have some small hikes into the Inca Sites where there are many steps to go up and down if you think they are not to fit to do it, we recommend taking a Private tour, that will be a perfect plan to do the tour quite easily and smoothly.
4. We want to take the tour included Wayna Picchu or Machu Picchu mountain, do we have enough time to do it in the same day tour of Machu Picchu?
Yes, On this tour you will sleep in Aguas Calientes (Town of Machu Picchu) so you can take some of the first busses, the park opens at 6:00 am. Suppose that you will get in at 7:00 am. First, you can climb the Mountain (2 or 3 and 1/2 hours hike) until 10:30 am. Then, you can go out to use the restroom or eat something and rest, then you can start the guided tour around the citadel (Around 2 hours) until 14:00 hrs. Then you will have free time to continue exploring on your own, the park is open until 5 pm. You will have like 10 hours to be there, the train departure to return is at 19:00 hrs.
5. How about my luggage, can I take all my staff?, or where can I store it?
We recommend leaving your stuff in your Cusco’s hotel while you are doing the tours, for Machu Picchu we recommend taking only small backpacks because there are restrictions to take on the train, and also all the streets in Aguas Calientes have only pedestrian access. The rest of your stuff you can be stored at your accommodation in Cusco, All the Hotels have storage if you book the night for your way back, you can leave your stuff there, another option is that you can leave your stuff in our office, in the two options you don’t need to pay anything extra.
6. How about the altitude, are going to pass by other places higher than Cusco?
Cusco city is located in 3350 masl. (10990 Ft.) the only place higher than Cusco is Chinchero area 3750 masl. Then you will descend to Aguas Calientes 2050 masl. Machu Picchu is located in 2450 masl (8038 Ft.); we always recommend having at least one day in Cusco to acclimatize; altitude sickness is very different for everyone, sometimes you don’t have any problem.
