Please read the tour program carefully before you book a tour, if you have any questions, we will be happy to answer them.
Changes in the itinerary may occur, due to the natural circumstances in Manu.
Please also read our Booking and Cancellation Policy.
With your booking you accept these conditions.
For a booking we need your full name, address, age, profession, passport number and nationality. To secure your booking we require a down payment of (minimum) 250 US$ per person for the longer tours and 220 US$ per person for short tours.
The deposit can be made to our bank account in Cusco/ Peru, our bank account in Germany or via Western Union or Xoom (PayPal) or Transferwise. We then confirm reception of the deposit and your tour booking(s). Transfer fees are covered by the client.
The balance can be paid by bank or Western Union 14 days before your tour date (subject to bank fees), otherwise you can pay the balance here at our office in Cusco latest on the day before your tour starts. Please pay in cash (Soles or US $). Payment in Euros is also possible, but the exchange rate here is sometimes not as good as in Europe.
Lately we cannot find information on where to cash US$ traveller’s cheques. We cannot receive them directly and it seems that banks in Cusco do not accept them anymore.
Credit card payment is not always possible in Peru and often expensive; you should consider about
7 % of fees. We recommend checking credit card conditions (limits for ATMs) with your bank before travelling to Peru. There are ATMs at Banco de la Nacion, Banco de Credito and Scotiabank where you can withdraw about 2000 Soles (aprox. 650 US$) per day or more (may vary according to your card. Note: the yellow “Globat Net” ATMs charge extra fees.
During the tour (e.g. for snacks, souvenirs) it’s best to pay in Soles. You need not bring much money on the tour as there are not many occasions to spend money in Manu. Normally S/.300 are enough. Please leave extra money in the safe at your hotel.
In general it’s recommended to travel and pay with Soles in Peru.
Please note that damaged US$ bills are not accepted in Peru, as it is foreign money! Even small rips are reasons for bills being refused.
Please allow some time for your pre-departure briefing before your tour. This normally takes place at our office on the day prior to your departure. Other dates are normally possible if we know in advance. Just contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
