Some things to note

Some things to note icon

Inca Trail Permit

  • $595pp - Minimum and maximum numbers may apply. Solo supplementary pricing applies. This option must be pre-booked. Not available in February. Good physical fitness is required for this high-altitude trek.

 Please note:

  • A trip to Cuba is a unique and rewarding experience, a country largely untouched until now. This means that hotels, transport and facilities sometimes lack creature comforts. Accommodation may be of varying standards as tourism demands are surpassing current infrastructure and it is possible there can be unexpected changes. As such, travel in Cuba requires an adventurous spirit, flexibility and an open mind.
  • On day 4 you will need to pack an overnight bag (maximum of 5 kilograms per bag) for your overnight stay in Machu Picchu. Due to limited space on the trains you are unable to take your main suitcase, it will however, be transferred to the hotel in Cusco so it is there for when you arrive. We suggest you bring an umbrella, spray jacket and strong insect repellent with you. Our accommodation will also have its own hot springs, so you may also like to bring your swimwear.
  • On day 10 you will be required to pay an INGALA Galapagos Visitor Card fee of $20pp US, as well as go through baggage screening prior to checking in. You will also be required to present your return Galapagos airline ticket prior to boarding your flight to the Galapagos. A National Park fee of $100pp US is payable upon arrival into the Galapagos Islands.

Optional Excursions

  • Bunnik Tours has a small number of optional excursions that may be available to you on your small group tour. These are based on special-interest activities that don't always appeal to everyone, meaning they're truly optional. To view our optional excursions in South & Central America click here.
