To coordinate your transfers from Lima airport and other destinations, it is crucial to know your international flight details such as:
• Arrival date:
• Arrival time:
• Flight Company:
• Departure date:
• Departure time:
Each client is responsible for sending the correct arrival and departure times of his/her national and international flights to Mapi Tour Peru to arrange transfer services.
Transfers are provided as indicated for each tour by car, minibus or motor boat. Your arrival transfer is guaranteed for up to one hour from your scheduled arrival time in order to compensate for minor delays. Mapi Tour Peru or the transfer company will not be responsible for flight delays, for any reason, beyond one hour from your originally scheduled arrival time. In case of a delay, whether due to flight delay, immigration and customs, or time spent reporting baggage damage or loss, it will be your responsibility to make other transfer arrangements (such as a taxi).
TOURS AND TREK ITINERARY
Times listed in itineraries are approximate and meant only as guidelines. Some itineraries may have early morning start times for sightseeing/expeditions in order to complete the touring during daylight hours or avoid afternoon heat in tropical and cold climates. It is your responsibility to arrive on time for all scheduled flights and package components. Arriving late may be considered a “no-show,” in which case you will not be eligible for refund for the unused services. Occasionally, during holidays and certain periods, and/or due to unforeseen circumstances including weather conditions, there may be last-minute changes, sometimes after arrival, that affect the sequence of the tour, locations visited and/or hotels. Therefore, we reserve the right to adjust the sequence and/or substitute any hotels with others of a similar category. In such cases, there will be no cost adjustment.
We do not provide any travel insurance. It is the client’s responsibility to get adequate personal travel insurance before coming to Peru. The insurance must include personal accident, medical expenses, air ambulance, loss of personal effects, repatriation costs and any other expenses which may arise as a result of loss, damage, injury or inconvenience to the client.
If you are planning to participate in any activity considered “risky” by the insurance company e.g. trekking, climbing, rafting, etc. – make sure that these are included in your policy. Please bring a copy of the policy document with you. If a client becomes ill, we will do everything necessary to get him/her proper medical treatment, including evacuation from remote sites and hospitalization if necessary but these costs will be assumed by the individual client.
You must be in general good health to join any of our trips. Our tour leaders and guides are authorized to disqualify any client who they believe is unfit for the demands of the trip. In this case, refunds will not be given. Mapi Tour Peru provides a first-aid kit for each trip; however, it is the responsibility of each client to bring specific medications they need.
RETURN TRAIN TO CUSCO
The Expedition Class train leaves Aguas Calientes at 16:43 pm and arrives at Poroy (20 minutes from Cusco) at 20:13 pm (times are approximate). The Expedition service no longer runs direct to Cusco and transfer is required from Poroy to the city of Cusco. We provide transfer assistance from the Poroy station to your hotel.
In high season, the trains get booked up and therefore, we will reserve the Expedition train for a different time, however, this train ends in Ollantaytambo. Transfer assistance to Cusco and your hotel is included.
VISIT OUR VIRTUAL OFFICE
Come to our Cusco office 48 hours before your trip to coordinate your pre-departure briefing and pay your final balance. If for health reasons (such as strong altitude sickness symptoms), you cannot come to our office, give us a call to come to your hotel.
Mapi Tour Peru is not responsible for additional expenses caused by loss, theft, injury, damage, accident, malfunctions, cancellations, delays or any other unforeseen events. Please note that itineraries are subject to change or cancelation due to unforeseen and unusual events beyond our control, including weather conditions, flight delays, buses or train problems, political disputes or similar occurrences. We will do our best in these circumstances to re-accommodate you. All such losses or expenses will be the responsibility of the customer – we therefore recommend having travel insurance with coverage for any of the events mentioned above. Any unused activities or benefits, which are included in your package, are non-refundable.
