SAM Travel Peru understands that passengers are concerned about what to do with their extra luggage while on a tour or trek. We have the solution for our passengers. Either they can store their extra luggage with us at no cost or they can store it with their hotel in Cusco if they are returning to that hotel. Even if passengers are returning to the same hotel in Cusco, they can still store their luggage with SAM Travel. We have a safe secure location for storing the luggage and we will provide a luggage ticket to our passengers, which identifies their luggage.
The best time to give SAM Travel Peru your extra luggage is the morning or day that you are picked up by our van driver to begin your trek or tour. You can leave it with him and he will bring it to the office to be stored in our safe and secure storage area.
It will be returned to you on the return from your trek or tour. The van driver will take you to our office to retrieve your luggage and then take you to your hotel.
If you are staying in Ollantaytambo or Urubamba before taking the train to start the Inca Trail or a tour to Machu Picchu, you can still store your extra luggage with SAM Travel Peru. All you need to do is give your excess luggage to our private van driver when he picks you up to take you to the train in Ollantaytambo. He will return your luggage to our Cusco Office where we will store it until our passengers return to Cusco. If you are not returning to Cusco, please inform us at your briefing or before and we will have our van driver that picks you up in Ollantaytambo from your return trip from Machu Picchu to bring your luggage with him when he picks you up.
Passengers that are doing the 1 day or 2 day Inca Trail hike to Machu Picchu can only carry a limited about of personal items and cloths in their backpack. Also, those that are doing a tour to Machu Picchu can only take on the train to Machu Picchu a carry on size suitcase or medium size backpack. The train does not allow anymore.
If someone is planning to stay a day or two extra in Machu Picchu and they really need their luggage, SAM Travel can get to them an extra duffle bag of belowings per person. They cannot bring more than that. There will be a fee for this service. ***Please check with the office at the time of your booking.
