The weather in Cusco is unpredictable during the rainy season, then we can’t know if it  is a good idea to do the activity if there is raining or if there was raining hardly the day before.

Because of this we have the following options:

  • change the departure time. (instead of leave 9:00 a.m., we leave 13:30 p.m.)
  • change the date of the tour.
  • cancel the tour definitly.
