**Since the Inca Trail has a maximum allowance of 500 people per day (including passengers and agency staff), we strongly recommend making your bookings, as much in advance as possible to make sure you will find spaces on the desired departure date. We are already receiving bookings for departures scheduled as far as one year prior to the trek departure date, so if you wish to travel with us to the Inca Trail, please make sure to confirm your booking as soon as possible. Otherwise, we have also available alternative routes of equally awesome beauty and interest to offer to you.

The government reserves the right not to allow entry to any visitor whose data are not the exact ones as those in the official permit. PERU AGENCY excludes any responsibility for a no entry in case the passenger information has changed without prior notice to us.
