Be in the know before you go


Enjoy personalized tours of Peru with private, local guides. A valid passport is required to travel and should have at least 6 months’ validity after your return home. You should have at least 2 blank pages per country that you are visiting. If your passport does not meet this requirement at the time of departure, you can be denied boarding for your international flight and may consequently incur additional expenses. You do not need a visa to enter Peru as a tourist with a US passport. However, we always recommend that you double check this for last minute changes with your local consulate.

Value Added Tax (IGV) Exemption: All non-resident foreign tourists in Peru who remain in the country less than 60 days (not to exceed 90 days in a calendar year) are exempt from paying the IGV, which is only for residents of Peru. Yampu does not include the 18% tax in our quoted rates. Note that when checking in at each hotel, you can expect to present your passport and the Andean Migration Card (TAM) stamped with your date of entrance into Peru. If your stay in Peru has exceeded 60 days, you will be counted as a resident and you will not be exempt from the IGV. In this case, you will be required to pay this tax for all hotels and services booked. Please let your Yampu Consultant know immediately if you or a member of your party may be ineligible for this exemption so that we may make the appropriate payment arrangements in advance

During your tour you will be visiting high altitude areas. Travelers with medical conditions, such as heart disease, lung disease, high blood pressure, sickle cell disease, or women who may be pregnant, should be advised to consult a physician familiar with high-altitude medical issues before traveling to high altitude areas.
