The price of the tour is extremely cheap: keep in mind that tourism agencies normally have a standard price and what varies is the service commission.
History of the agency or service: check the social networks of said agency or service, do they have comments and followers? Look up old experiences to give you an idea of what to expect. Remember that you can also search for the company on the SUNAT page to see that it has no debts.
Confirm the names of the payment accounts: they should be in the name of a company or business owner.
