(*) Luggage storage. When you go on the trek it is best to leave any luggage that you are not going to need behind in Cusco. Nearly all the hotels in Cuscoprovide a secure luggage deposit. Put any valuables in their safe. Very rarely do hotels charge for this service especially if you are returning to the same hotel after the trek. If there are any problems with your hotel we can arrange to store your luggage at our office.

(*) Time of arrival in Cusco after returning from the trek. Unless you plan to stay an extra night in Aguas Calientes, you will return to your hotel in Cusco for approximately 7:30pm on the 2th day of the trek.

 

(*) Group Size:

Popular group size 14, Maximum 16 persons: Adventure to the maximum because the groups are divided if exceed 08 people, we divided them in two groups, each one with a guide.

Small Group size 2 maximun 4 persons: (we are small group specialist) The best manner for you doing the Inca Trail is to be included in a little group, since when you are part of a big group, you are in various stretches along the route, pressed to keep the walking rythm from many people. This is the reason because the small groups are more expensive. We do not handle big groups, and so we can guarantee you that you`ll be part,  along with your partners, of a little group.

 

(*) Avoid disappointment:
-.  Book your Inca Trail holiday in time Over the last few years, the Peruvian government has imposed increasing restrictions on tourism on the Inca Trail in order to protect it from overuse. The aim is to minimize ecological impact and erosion, mainly by having limited access and improving the quality of the operators. There are now only a very limited number of trekking permits available - 500 per day - and they are being issued on a first-come-first-served basis. In order to avoid disappointment we recommend booking well in advance (up to a minimum of 8 months in peak season), unless you are extremely flexible over your travel dates.

⇒  Inca Trail Permits:
The increasing popularity of the Inca Trail has resulted in restrictions being placed on the number of trekkers. Each day the Peruvian Government allows 500 people to start onto the trail. These numbers include all guides and porters so equates to probably around 200 trekkers. Although this seems like a large number the popularity of the trail means that permits are sold out very quickly. Permits cannot be reserved in advance. They are issued on a strictly first come first allocated basis. Each permit must be issued to a designated named trekker for a given start date. We can only obtain a permit for a confirmed booking. Therefore, bookings will need to be made early to ensure a spot on this program. To be certain of a spot we believe that bookings should be finalized before 2,4 or 8 months (according to the season) but clearly the permits for our trek dates could sell out earlier or later depending on demand from other groups. Once all permits are sold we will not be able to take any more registrations.
» We remind you to book as soon as possible the next year.  In the present  year 2017 the permissions for the trek have been ran out quickly, and many trekkers were left outside.   Nevertheless, you can get a space for the next  year.  you must be sure of having the group details at booking: names, passport numbers,age, etc. next, we show you a frame for you choosing the date and start of your travel.. These details cannot be changed after you buy your tour. the regulations don't allow it.
