Is This Trip Right for YOU?

This moderately active trip covers a fair amount of ground each day. Expect from three to four hours walking every touring day. The pace is moderate, however you will encounter some uneven surfaces, stairs, steps and significant slopes. The elevation of 11,000 feet in Cuzco, may be a consideration for those who have heart conditions, or are otherwise affected by altitude.

This package with Gate1 Starts at $1,299 for Land Only, and $1,699 for Air & Land. Shoot us a message if you’re interested in more information, and take a look at the video below to learn more about this tour.
