Tips For Going To Machu Picchu With A Branded Tour Package

If you have decided to visit Machu Picchu with a branded tour package, you are likely very excited for the opportunity to see this architectural heritage site. The tour package likely includes a variety of meals, events, and other activities for you to attend in order to get a comprehensive view of Peru and its history. Here are some additional tips for going to Machu Picchu with a branded tour package so that you can make the most of your experience.

1. Stick to the Recommended Age

Many branded tour packages have recommended and minimum ages for trips such as this. This is due to the fact that there are aspects of the trip that children might have a hard time dealing with because their muscles and attention spans are not as developed yet. Don't take the trip if you have a child that has just met the minimum age requirement unless you are confident that he or she will be able to cope with all of the activities. Instead, wait until your children are of the recommended age. This will allow you to enjoy the trip without worrying about your child falling behind or being bored.

2. Bring Cash For Your Tour Guide

Many branded tour packages will not include gratuities. Bring cash to tip your tour guide between $10 and $12 dollars per day per person that he or she is guiding that you are directly responsible for. For example, if you experience exemplary service and have a family of four, considering tipping $48 per day. This will allow you to show that you appreciate the work that the tour guide as put in. Consider giving your tour guide a tip either every every evening or halfway through the trip and then again at the end of the trip. Be sure that you tip each tour guide separately if you have more than one.

3. Get Local Cash Before Heading to the Sacred Valley

Finally, be sure that you get cash, specifically Nuevo Sol, before you go to the Sacred Valley due to the fact that there are not a lot of ATMs there. This will allow you to feel confident that you have the money that you need to pay for snacks and other small items that are not included with your tour package and not have to worry about business accepting credit and debit cards.
