Important note about possible changes to trek prices in 2011:

The price of our standard 4 day Inca Trail group service as listed on our website is based on the following costs:
(a) Machu Picchu entrance fee is
126 Peruvian Soles (approx US$46)
(b) The price of the train service from Aguas Calientes to Cusco in Backpackers class is US$
96 per person (2010)
(c) The price of the bus from Machu Picchu to Aguas Calientes is US$
12 per person (round trip)
(d) The current rate of Peruvian sales tax (IGV) is 19%

The above costs are based on all information currently available. Although the government has not confirmed the price of Machu Picchu entrance fee (trek permit) in 20
10.
An increase to any of the above third party costs are completely outside of the control of Andean Life and will be passed directly on to our clients. As soon as we are aware of any such increase we will immediately update our website and the price of our trek increased accordingly. Clients be be asked to pay any differences to the cost of the trek when paying the trek balance upon arrival in Cusco. The actual cost of the trek permits / train tickets and bus tickets is clearly marked on the respective tickets so it will be very clear to our clients that an increase to any of the above costs has occurred. We appreciate you understanding in this matter.
