We have taken all necessary measures in order to avoid any transmission to our passengers and we have implemented the following health and safety procedures from the moment that the coronavirus epidemic was reported worldwide:

All passengers traveling to Peru are obliged to provide brief health information to our staff at the airport (Lima or Cusco) as we will ask them pertinent questions in case any of the passengers have visited China, Italy, Brazil etc. during the last 14 days or have flu-like symptoms. If we do have a special case reported, we will immediately contact the health authorities and passengers will not be allowed to continue on the tour as a prevention measure for all our guests.

Our staff members are performing regular cleaning procedures and emphasizing aseptic disinfection of all our transportation as well as their equipment on a more frequent basis to help combat the virus.

We have equipped our staff with antiseptic gel and alcohol to maintain adequate disinfection on board and for daily use of our passengers.

We are equipping our buses with sterile facemasks in the event that passengers require this protection.

All health and safety measures to protect our passengers will be taken in Peru and we will be assisting all guests and passengers in the most appropriate way. We will also keep you updated with any official news as it is published.
