Frequently Asked Questions
Is it hot?
Yes, but no hotter than here in Florida. It will be winter in Peru - average temperature will be in the mid-80s.

Is it a safe place for me (my child)?
Yes, it is safer than most cities in the US. We've previously taken children as young as eight in complete safety!
What about physical requirements, size, strength, etc.?
We recommend that anyone who is going to be touring with us have a physical exam when they update their vaccinations. At that point, tell your physician about the trip you (or your student) is going to be taking. Ask your physician if there is any reason that would prohibit you or your student from taking this trip. Also ask if there is anything the guides would be made aware of in advance. People in generally good physical shape should experience absolutely no problems on this trip. It's not a physical fitness exercise program:)
Do I have to speak Spanish to go and enjoy myself?
No, we have our own English/Spanish speaking guides and our staff is also bilingual.

Yes, but they may not be hot.
