Professional and attentive service with incredible scenery Sam Travel were fantastic to work with and very responsive on email especially as plans were ever changing with covid. We are two couples who did the 4D/3N Lares trek to Machu Picchu including Lares Hot springs. Our guide Fabian was so attentive and helpful during our trek with perfect English and great sense of humor. His passion for Machu Picchu was obvious and made the entire experience an unforgettable one. Our chefs Nadio and Julio, and horsemen Roberto and Masalino were so professional and wonderful at what they do. The food was incredible and they were so attentive and efficient. Would definitely recommend this trek to anyone wanting an alternative experience to the more popular Inca and Salkantay treks. The scenery was breathtaking (as was the altitude). Thank you again to Fabian and the team.…

Sacred Valley, Inca Trail, and Macchu Picchu I had two different tours through Sam Travel Peru and both were wonderful experiences. Adner and Jahdiel (JD) we’re great guides through several sites in the Sacred Valley. Danny led my short Inca trail tour and Macchu Picchu visit. The guides were all very knowledgeable and so accommodating. Adner took us to a lace for authentic textiles after we expressed an interest in that. Danny was a great leader through a very long hike. He constantly encouraged us to take our time, stop for breaks and take lots of pictures. If I return to Peru I will definitely book all my tours with Sam Peru Travel.…

NEW 2019 MACHU PICCHU REGULATIONS

Machu Picchu was recognized as a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1983. UNESCO has been concerned with the increase of visitors to Machu Picchu within the last few years and worries that these crowds are causing damage. They have established new regulations for 2019 to reduce visitor traffic within this archaeological complex.

These new regulations will take effect on January 1, 2019. All visitors will now be limited to 4 hour visiting sessions. Tickets to Machu Picchu will be divided into three daily sessions: early morning (6AM – 9AM), late morning (9AM – 12PM) and early afternoon (12PM – 3PM). Within these sessions, visitors must choose a specific hour to visit. This is to regulate and reduce visitor traffic within the citadel– each hour will be limited to 600 visitors.

The new regulations will have a direct impact on: Huayna Picchu and Machu Picchu Mountain (not to be confused with the citadel itself). In order to enjoy your tour of the citadel and hike the additional mountains, you will need to purchase an extra entrance ticket to the ruins extending your time allowed inside. This means that Huayna Picchu tickets will go up from $35 per person to $75 per person

All tours include the entrance to Machu Picchu but, in order, to hike Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain, you will need to purchase an additional Machu Picchu entrance ticket with the Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu permit, which will cost a total of $75 per person. These new regulations will come into effect starting January 1, 2019 and will apply towards all tours. If you have booked Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain with us and do not want to pay the higher fee, please contact us at: samtravelperu@gmail.com

These are new regulations that will take effect starting January of 2019, keep visiting our page and social sites for more information or updates on these regulations.
