Terms and Conditions


When booking or participating in any tour, including related products or services, with Machu Picchu Reservations (“MPR” or the “Tour Operator”), you are agreeing to the following Terms & Conditions (“Terms”). These Terms represent a legally binding agreement between you and MPR, and are intended to ensure the smooth running of your tour and the satisfaction of all parties involved.

It is important to read and understand these Terms before booking or participating in any tour with MPR. They include important information regarding payment policies, cancellation and refund procedures, health and safety requirements, and other key considerations.

By agreeing to these Terms, you are acknowledging that you have read and understood all of the information provided, and that you are willing to comply with all relevant policies and regulations. If you have any questions or concerns about the Terms or your tour, please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.

At MPR, we are committed to providing you with the best possible tour experience, and we look forward to welcoming you on one of our tours soon.


When you book a tour with a Tour Operator or travel agent and pay the applicable deposit amount, a contract is created and your booking is confirmed. It is important to carefully review your written confirmation for any incorrect or incomplete information and notify the Tour Operator or authorized agent immediately.

To ensure a smooth journey, it is crucial to make sure that the names on the booking are identical to those on the relevant passport. Additionally, please note that the deposit is completely non-refundable in any situation and no exceptions can be made.

To enter the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu, you must present the original passport that you used to make the booking. If you have renewed your passport since booking, you must bring both the expired passport and the new, valid passport to gain entry. Failure to present the required documentation may result in refusal of entry.

If you are eligible for a student discount, the only acceptable form of identification is your University Card with a clear expiration date that matches the year of your trek. ID cards with expiry dates in the following year, even if they are still valid, will not be accepted by the Peruvian government. You must provide a copy of this card at the time of booking.

At Machu Picchu Reservations, we strive to make your travel experience as enjoyable as possible. By following these guidelines, you can help ensure a smooth and successful trip.


At Machu Picchu Reservations, we understand that unexpected events can arise, necessitating a cancellation of your tour. However, we regret to inform you that your deposit is 100% non-refundable, and there are no exceptions to this policy.

Please be aware that if you cancel your tour as the start date approaches, there may be additional costs due. This is because our out-of-pocket expenses for arranging the tour are non-refundable to us, and we have a responsibility to ensure that all costs are covered.

We understand that some clients may request cancellations due to medical reasons or other unforeseen circumstances. However, we regret to inform you that we do not accept medical notes or any other documentation as exceptions to our cancellation policy.

We strive to provide you with a high-quality tour experience and assure you that our cancellation policy is designed to ensure that all aspects of the tour are properly planned and executed. Thank you for your understanding.


By this agreement letter, I acknowledge that adventure tours involve inherent risks and dangers, including those associated with traveling in mountainous terrain, remote locations without medical facilities, and the forces of nature. I agree to assume all risks associated with the tour and agree that Machu Picchu Reservations S.A.C., its employees, or agents will not be held responsible for any injuries, illness, damages, or losses that may occur during the tour.

I agree to respect the customs of local people and the wildlife in the areas we will be visiting, and to behave in the best interest of the safety of the group.

Please note that Inca Trail permits and Machu Picchu tickets are issued in your name and cannot be transferred to anyone else under any circumstances. Once a permit has been purchased, it is not possible to change the dates, and the permit is non-refundable and non-transferable. If you cancel your trek, the deposit will be forfeited. Please be aware that this is a regulation of the Peruvian government, and not a policy established by MPR or any agency.

In the event of the Inca Trail being closed for safety reasons, MPR will offer an alternative trek as a replacement.

If you booked your permit with a student ID, please ensure that you bring this card with you on the trek. The Park Rangers require that you show this ID to be allowed entry onto the trail. Failure to present a valid student ID will result in denial of entry.

At MPR, we strive to ensure that your trek is as enjoyable and hassle-free as possible. Please review this information carefully and contact us if you have any further questions or concerns.
