How will you pick me up from my flight?
Prior to arrival, an email will be sent requesting your flight number and arrival time. Our driver will be outside the Cusco airport holding a “First Step Expeditions” sign. More information and a map will be provided with purchase.
Do I need to bring my own camping equipment?
We will provide a tent and padded sleeping mat. Tents are set for double occupancy. If you need your own tent, there will be an additional $30 charge (total, not per night).
Sleeping bags are available for rent for $30 per person.
What are the accommodations?
The actual location will depend on group size and availability as we get closer to the trip, but we work with 3 star hotel-level accommodations (two double or queen sized beds with private bath). Costs are set for double occupancy. If a single room is required for the duration of the tour, there will be an additional charge of $150 (total, not per night).
What is the weather like in May/June?
The weather in Cusco is consistent all year round with warm days (70-75F) and cold nights (30-40F). The mountains are unpredictable though so you should always pack layers and be prepared for rain. Packing recommendations will be provided with purchase.
What is your cancellation policy?
The $200 deposit is non-refundable.
Otherwise, if you cancel your trip, 100% of the remaining balance is refundable if you cancel more than 60 days before your trip. 50% of your balance is refundable if you cancel between 59 and 31 days prior to the trip. If you cancel within 30 days, no refund will be available.
If your trip is canceled due to circumstances out of your control (like a pandemic or quarantine restrictions) 100% of your remaining balance (not including the non-refundable $200 deposit) is fully refundable.
The $200 non-refundable deposit can be transferred to any future date within 2 years of your scheduled trek start.
