HOW TO BOOK A TOUR

How to book to book a trip? … you will need to complete a reservation form and pay a non-refundable deposit that you can make by using our online booking function for most trips, or submit your reservation form and deposit it at our office or travel agent. We can also help you with any additional arrangements you may need, such as competitive airfare to your destination, stopovers, pre-trip or post-trip accommodation, or any additional trips you wish to take.

CHANGING MONEY

Cash points/ATMs are widely available and are the safest and easiest way to access cash.

Most major credit cards are accepted throughout the region. We recommend that you bring yours along in case you see something special, which you hadn’t budgeted for.

Please note credit cards cannot be used to pay for Optional Activities.

It is advisable you notify your bank or credit card issuing company of your intention to travel as for security reasons, banks and credit card companies sometimes blocks cards when withdrawals are unexpectedly made overseas.

British pounds, Euros and US dollars are easily exchanged in Peru and are an alternative to using ATMs. US dollars cash can also be used for some purchases

IMPORTANT NOTE: 

There are two USD rates of exchange in Peru, the bank rate and the street rate, and these rates can be significantly different. Banks will buy your USD, but they will rarely be able to give you USD in exchange for another currency. As such, the functioning exchange is the street rate, which is not as favorable if you want to purchase USD.

Therefore, we highly recommend that you bring USD with you to pay for your tours.

Upon arrival to Peru airport it is advisable to cash up about USD100. This will cover any expenditure on your Cusco sightseeing day and give you flexibility until you need to change more money where you can get a better exchange rate.

On your trip you will be given the opportunity to change money at either a bank or hotel.

SPENDING MONEY

Based on past experience, we recommend at least Peruvian soles 200 – 500 (approx USD 120 – 150) per day to cover your normal expenses including sightseeing, small souvenir shopping and meals. If you wish to purchase expensive souvenirs, you will need to budget for more, or use your credit cards for these purchases.

Remember, this is a rough figure only and spending habits vary greatly between individuals according to their budget and habits!

MEALS

Your included meals for the tour are detailed in the ‘Inclusions’ section of this document.

Breakfasts are included every day in all your trips (except on the first morning). A typical breakfast may consist of cereals with milk or yoghurt, bread, croissants, cold meats, cheese and a range of spreads, with fruit juice, tea or coffee to drink. It is rare to get a hot breakfast, though on some occasions there may be some hot food available as well.

When included, evening meals are in local restaurants or you place of accommodation and are either two or three courses. In most cases table water is provided with the meals, and if you wish to purchase additional drinks you can do so at your own expense.

If you have any dietary requirements we will make every effort to cater to your specific needs as long as you advise your travel agent or SUNRISE PERU TREK trip Consultant when you book. But please be aware that although we will do everything in our power to arrange it, we cannot guarantee that every restaurant we use will be able to cater to all dietary needs. We also cannot cater for tastes or dislikes, as most of our included evening meals feature a set menu.

If you allow USD 20 per day in Peru for meals not included you will be able to eat fairly well.

GRATITUDE

Although you may not be accustomed to tipping at home, tipping (known locally as ‘baksheesh’) is an important way of life in Peru and is something that is done by locals as well as tourists.

When travelling with top deck, tips are already included on anything that forms part of your itinerary, including bus/coach drivers, included meals, hotel staff, local guides, etc. This includes your SUNRISE PERU TREK tour leader. That means you do not have to tip for any of these included services!

However, you will need to tip for services that are not included, so please take this into consideration when working out your budget. For example, you will need to tip at non-included meals when you pay for the meal yourself, even if your Trip Leader has helped organize it, and you will need to tip for anything you do on your free time.

Your Trip Leader can advise you what an appropriate tip amount is. A general rule when tipping is if the service warrants it, tip what you think is a fair amount, and if you do not think so, then do not tip or tip less than normal. Also, do not get bullied into tipping and disregard any comments that you have not given enough.

ENTRANCE FEES

Questions And Answers

It is an Inca archaeological site; Machu Picchu is an outstanding reminder of the power and ingenuity of the Inca civilization. Built in the 15th century, the ancient citadel was abandoned only 100 years later and many mysteries remain. Machu Picchu was Listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage site in 1983 and announced as one of the Seven Wonders of the World in 2007; it is the most important tourist destination in the world

At 100 kilometers from the city of Cusco at an altitude of 2,400masl; is located overlooking the Urubamba River, the site of Machu Picchu sits above the Sacred Valley – located in the Cusco region of Peru.[/

To get to Machu Picchu you can walk along the Inca Trail for 2 days or 4 days; you also can take the train from the train station of Ollantaytambo (1:45 hours) or from Poroy (3 hours); or you can take bus for 6 -7 hours

The good news is Machu Picchu can be visited year-round. The most popular time, and therefore the most crowded, is in June, July and august. Low cloud cover during the dry season from April to October also means cold nights on hiking trails – so make sure to bring some thermals for a good night’s sleep. The wet season takes place from November to March. This is when the temperature rises and the region receives heavy rainfall.
