FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
  1. I can’t find my accommodation listed in the operator’s pick up locations as I’m making my booking. What should I select?

    This operator only offers pick-ups from the hotel and hostel accommodation listed. This list covers over 90% of the accommodation providers in the area. They do not provide pick-ups or drop-offs at private residences, Airbnb, bus terminals etc. If you cannot find your hotel on the list, please select an alternative pick up location close by, and be ready for pick-up at the time shown on your booking confirmation.

  2. Will I have problems with altitude sickness on this tour?

    Altitude sickness can catch many travelers a little bit off guard. Not everyone gets sick in high altitudes, and it is difficult to predict who is likely to be badly affected by it. For most people, it is nothing more than a headache and a dizzy sensation that diminishes over a short period of time, 1 to 2 days for most people. If you want to limit your chances of getting sick, there are a few things you can do. Firstly, do not fly directly into high altitude - proceed slowly, allowing your body time to acclimatize as you ascend gradually. However, for many that is not possible, so it’s important to drink lots of water, and to slow down! This sounds simple, but both of these things are very important. Your body is struggling because you don’t have enough oxygen, so avoiding any strenuous activity is a good idea. Chew some coca leaves - the native people of South America have been chewing coca for centuries, thanks to its ability to alleviate mild altitude sickness symptoms. Coca leaves can be bought in any supermarket, and even souvenir shops or street stalls. Take altitude sickness pills (Soroche): these are sold over the counter all over Peru and Bolivia and are just a few dollars. If you are flying straight into altitude over 2500 meters without spending any time at an intermediate elevation, and you’re worried about getting sick, you can ask your doctor for more specific and stronger altitude sickness medication in advance. In the rare case that your symptoms are more severe than a headache and mild dizziness, you should descend in altitude and seek medical assistance.

  3. How long does the tour last?

    The duration of the tour is of approximately 3 hours and 30 minutes.

  4. Is this activity risky?

    The activity is considered an extreme sport and therefore carries some risk in line with all sports in this category. It is important to follow all instructions provided by your professional guide to avoid potential incidents.

  5. What time does the activity start?

    The following are the scheduled times: 10: 30 am – 2:30 pm & 2:30 pm – 6:30 pm
