Afternoon Cusco city tour + nearby ruins

The city tour includes a visit to the Cathedral, considered the best repository of colonial art from the

Cusco school. We'll continue the circuit to Qoricancha ("court of gold", also known as the temple of the

sun), the religious and political center of Cusco during the Inca era. Just outside the city is

Sacsayhuaman ("speckled falcon"), the fortress above Cusco whose precise zigzags of massive stone

remain unmoved by the centuries. This is the center of the ceremonies for the famous Inti Raymi

festival. Continuing away from the city, we'll visit the labyrinthine ruins of Qenqo ("zigzag"), Puca

Pucara (Red Fortress) and Tambomachay ("cavern lodge") where fountains built by the Incas capture

the waters of a natural spring.

a chance to explore this quaint town, famous for its artisan markets where you can find extraordinarily

fine jewelry and ceramic and textile craftwork.

Buffet lunch at local restaurant

In the afternoon, you will visit one of the last remaining Incan towns, Ollantaytambo, which was once

fiercely guarded by a massive fortress. Discover the large archeological complex of what used to serve

as a wayside inn for royal delegations on long journeys. Surviving structures here include multiple walls

and towers that were used to protect the citadel from possible invasions.

erecting many hundreds of stone structures from the early 1400's, legends and myths indicate that

Machu Picchu was revered as a sacred place from a far earlier time.

May 26: Iguasu Falls

Nothing in the world of water compares to the natural spectacle provided by the stunning group of 275

waterfalls that make up the Iguassu Falls. The view of this wonder from the Argentinian side is a mustsee.

On this 8-hour tour, you will start by taking a bus or van through the park until reaching the point to

start the trails and walkaways. At the end of the trail you will find the most well-known point Garganta

do Diabo (Devil's Throat), the biggest waterfall in the park.

After a stop to behold and absorb all the nature and landscape that surrounds you, you will head to the

second point of the tour, called Circuito Superior (Superior Circuit). When you reach the top you will be

able to see all the high points of the park. If it is a sunny day, you will most likely see a gorgeous

rainbow.

After that you will start the Circuito Inferior of the Cataratas (waterfalls), where you can see them from

the bottom view. In addition, you will drive through the jungle and hike a trail that leads to the

waterfalls and a boat ride. This is everything you could want in an adventure tour.

Two of the most famous sights in Rio de Janeiro are at your fingertips on this day-long tour. Sugar Loaf

and Corcovado Mountains, including the impressive Christ Redeemer statue overlooking the city should

definitely be at the top of your list, and Gray Line Rio de Janeiro is the perfect guide for your day. First

thing in the morning, you’ll be picked up from your hotel and taken through downtown Rio for a

panoramic tour. See the Sambrodome, stop at the Metropolitan Cathedral and discover the Cinelandia

Square and its wealth of historical buildings. The Municipal Theater, National Library, and National

Museum of Fine Arts are all on your way as well as you head toward toward the Urca neighborhood,

home of Sugar Loaf Mountain.

Ride the iconic cable cars all the way up the mountain, stopping at Urca Hill and its vantage point

overlooking Guanabara Bay and its islands, the Rio-Niteroi bridge and Corcovado mountain. Finish your

ascent to the top of Sugar Loaf, enjoying gorgeous views of the Copacabana beach and Santa Cruz

Fortress.

Enjoy a lunch at a barbecue house before you head over to the base of Corcovado Mountain via the

Cosme Vehlo Train. Ride through the lush and dense Tijuca rainforest to the towering Christ Redeemer

statue. Standing guard over the city of Rio, the statue has a fascinating history—your knowledgeable

hometown guide will share all the secrets with you before you head back to your hotel.

Jun 4: Rio De Janeiro

Appreciate Rio from the sea, its historical buildings and the forts that protected the Guanabara Bay.

Built by the Portuguese in 1555, see the Bay from a very special angle. We will sail to see the most

beautiful landscape of Rio. It is the largest bay of the world in volume of water, it has several islands, as

the Governor’s island, Fundão and Snakes island. In the west margin we see Rio de Janeiro, and East the

municipal district of Niteroi. A city vision is discovered as we leave " Marina Da Gloria " by Saveiro,

neighborhoods of Botafogo, Flamengo, Urca, Sugar Loaf, Fort São Joao, Flagstone Island, Santa Cruz

Fortress, and Rio- Niteroi Bridge.

Transfer hotel between your hotel and the Marina da Gloria is included.

Rest of the day, enjoy the beach.

Jun 5: Rio De Janeiro

Today, you will visit the Rocinha, the biggest “favela” in Latin America. A favela is a Brazilian version of

a shanty town.

During your guided tour, you will get a glimpse of the daily life of the community at the favela and

take a walk in the alleys. Located between the neighborhoods of Gávea and São Conrado, Rocinha is the

biggest “favela” in Latin America. You will learn and closely see the diversified culture of people living

there.

Learn from your guide as he explains to you the culture and social and sustainable development. This

tour will show a different side of Rio de Janeiro and give you a real vision of what a poor community is.

It is one of the most requested and surprising tours in the city.

Jun 6: Rio De Janeiro

Full day at leisure to enjoy work famous Copacabana Beach.

Jun 7: Rio De Janeiro - Home

The tour begins at the beach of Ipanema, immortalized by Tom Jobim’ song, Girl from Ipanema. We will

ride its bike path until we get to Jardim de Alah ( Allah´s Garden), there is a cannal that connects the

Lagoon to the sea, and separate the beaches of Ipanema and Leblon. The canal leads us to Rodrigo de

Freita´s Lagoon, surrounded by the most fancy neighborhoods of Rio (Lagoa, Ipanema, Leblon, Gávea and

Jardim Botânico), framed by mountains and embraced by the Christ Redeemer, Rodrigo de Freita´s

Lagoon impresses by its sunset and the gold reflex on its silent waters. We will ride the Lagoon bike

path, passing by 3 parks, which are the best equipped areas of entertainment of the city. Our guides will

tell you how the Rio´s football clubs rivalry started at the lagoon, by the time rowing was the most

popular sport of Rio de Janeiro, in the end of the 19th century.

DESTINATION INFORMATION

ARGENTINA

Spirited Argentina, with its clamouring capital, vast pampas, rolling wine regions and snowy peaks, is a

land bursting with adventure. It’s a place where the clichés hold true: football is essentially a religion, the

beef is phenomenal and there’s little point even thinking about starting a proper night out before

midnight. Its natural wonders range from Andean plateaux and Patagonian glaciers to subtropical

waterfalls and wildlife-rich wetlands. There’s an awful lot to love.

Travel Document for Jeff, Ben & Jerry / Booking Ref: 3005 / 4/20/2016 ( V - 5 )

Page 17 of 35


Buenos Aires might sit at the very edge of the country, gazing out across the Rio de la Plata, but it’s very

much Argentina’s centrepiece. The city of Evita and Maradona, its tango halls, parillas (grill restaurants)

and feisty porteños (BA residents) provide a gutsy introduction to the country. In the high-end

neighbourhoods of Recoleta and Palermo you’ll find designer boutiques and trendy eateries, while historic

San Telmo offers antique stalls, old-world cafés and an abundance of live music.

In the north, scorched mountains and otherworldly rock formations characterise the Salta region, where

Spanish and Gaucho traditions combine and Argentina’s famous white wines flourish. Further west, in the

Mendoza region, the grapes are red and the foothills of the Andes offer skiing, while down south, in

Patagonia, you’ll find an astonishing spread of expansive lakes, jagged peaks and mile upon empty mile of

open space.

Elsewhere, try walking in the glistening Lake District, whale-watching off the coast at Puerto Madryn,

meeting baby penguins in Punta Tombo or exploring the Jesuit chapels and farmhouses of Córdoba.

Another of the country’s majestic natural beauties is the mighty Iguazu Falls, bordering Argentina and

Brazil.

Despite living through a dark military dictatorship and a spectacularly devastating economic crisis,

Argentineans still have a vivacious and infectious lust for life. And from its subtropical top to its icy tip, it

remains a mesmerising country.

Area: 2,780,400 sq km (1,073,518 sq miles).

Population: 43 million (2014).

Population density: 15.5 per sq km.

Capital: Buenos Aires.

Government: Federal republic.

Head of state: President Mauricio Macri since 2015.

Head of government: President Mauricio Macri since 2015.

Electricity: 220 volts AC, 50Hz. Plug fittings in older buildings are of the two-pin round type, but most new

buildings use the V-shaped twin with earth pin.

What You Need to Know Before You Go

PASSPORT AND VISA INFORMATION

In order to enter Argentina as a citizen of Canada & the United States, you will need:

A signed passport valid for 6 months beyond the completion of this trip.

While tourists from Canada and Australia do not need a visa to enter Argentina, they are charged a so

called ‘reciprocity fee’ to enter the country. This is a bit like an entrance fee and is based on the amount

Argentinians are charged in visa fees to enter those countries.

U.S. Passport Holders: The Argentine Immigration Agency has temporarily suspended the required US$160

reciprocity fee payment. U.S. passport holders arriving into Argentina between March 23, 2016 and June 23,

2016 do not have to pay the reciprocity fee. Entry requirements are subject to change and up-to-date

information can be found on the Argentine Immigration website at www.migraciones.gov.ar. The waiver

does not alter visa charges or reciprocity fees that apply to citizens of other countries.

Prior to arrival in Argentina at any entry point, Canadians (US$92); tourist and business travelers must pay

the reciprocity fee by credit card online at www.migraciones.gov.ar. Airlines will not let you board the

plane without a printed copy of the reciprocity fee showing that you have paid the required amount.

To pay your reciprocity fee you need to register on line, provide personal information and a credit card

number. Once paid, you must print out the barcoded receipt and present it to the Argentine immigration

officer at the time of entry even when returning to Argentina from half-day, full day or overnight stays in

neighboring countries. The fee is valid for ten years from the date of payment and multiple entries. If you

have travelled to Argentina since 2009 and have an existing 10-year “fee-paid” sticker in your passport you

do not have to pay the fee again. Fees and procedures are subject to change.

Note for visitors to Iguassu Falls If your itinerary includes a visit to Iguassu Falls, you must obtain a tourist

Travel Document for Jeff, Ben & Jerry / Booking Ref: 3005 / 4/20/2016 ( V - 5 )

Page 18 of 35


visa in advance for Brazil if you intend to cross the border on a day-trip from the Argentine side to view

the Brazilian side of the Falls. The Brazilian visa cannot be obtained at the border and authorities will

refuse entry to anyone not holding a valid visa. Make sure your passport has enough blank visa pages

available for entry and exit stamps.

If you are not a citizen of Canada or the United States, your entry requirements may vary. Please consult

the nearest diplomatic or consular office of the country or countries you will be visiting.

CONSULAR INFORMATION

The US Department of State provides Country Specific Information Sheets for every country in the world,

as well as Travel Alerts and Warnings. Find this information by calling 888 407 4747 or 202 501 4444 or

online at travel.state.gov.

•Contact Canadian embassies and consulates abroad, if you need to get help in case of emergency when

you are travelling in a foreign country. Call the nearest embassy or consulate. or 1 613 996 8885 (call

collect where available)

CURRENCY

Argentina's unit of currency is the Argentine Peso.

In Argentina, ATM access (with payout in Pesos) is available in urban areas. If using an ATM, do so during

business hours at a location inside a bank, supermarket, or large commercial building. At present, US

dollars are accepted by many tourist-oriented businesses and shops.

We suggest travelling with some U.S. dollars to be exchanged for local currency and at least two major

credit cards. If you have a “Chip and PIN” card, be careful to shield your number from view while entering

it on a keypad; never disclose your PIN verbally. Notify your credit card company of your travel plans prior

to your departure to avoid any fraud concerns.

We do not recommend traveller’s checks as they are not as widely accepted as in previous years.

HEALTH

It is a good idea to read up on any health issues or concerns related to your destination. The Centers for

Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers current health information; it can be reached at 800-232-4636

or online at wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel.

Required vaccination(s) None

We suggest that you see a healthcare provider at least 4-6 weeks before your departure to allow time for

any vaccinations or treatments to take effect. If your journey includes travel in the High Andes regions of

Chile and Argentina or the Altiplano or Atacama Desert regions of Chile, you may experience altitude

sickness. Please consult your healthcare provider for suggestions on prevention and treatment.

WEATHER

Argentina is a long country stretching over 2,000 miles north to south and the climate in each country

varies by region and altitude. Here, the seasons are reversed from the northern hemisphere and winter

occurs during the months of June through August.

Most of Argentina (except for the sub-tropical northern regions and sub-polar southern regions) enjoys a

temperate climate with hot, humid summers and cool, dry winters. Tropical regions experience high

temperatures and rainfall year-round. The mountainous regions feature an arid climate and Patagonia is

cold and windy. Tierra de Fuego’s weather is generally cold and rainy with summer temperatures rarely

climbing beyond the 60s.

ELECTRICAL SERVICE

Argentina - 220 volts and 50 hertz

WHAT TO PACK

Daytime attire: Pack comfortable, casual clothing in natural, breathable fabrics. Temperatures will change

as altitudes and time of day change, so it’s best to bring shorts as well as long trousers, and clothing you

can layer.

Evening attire: Somewhat smarter clothing is appropriate for evening dining in city restaurants. In Buenos

clothing is not necessary. If visiting mountainous regions or exploring Patagonia, pack a lightweight parka

or windproof jacket (preferably water resistant) and windproof slacks, made of fabric such as Gor-Tex®.

Winds can be fierce; you may opt to bring earmuffs and gloves to wear. (Hat, gloves, and scarf are

necessary for winter travel.)

What You Need to Know When You Arrive

TIME ZONES

EST 7:00 a.m. the same day

CST 6:00 a.m. the same day

MST 5:00 a.m. the same day

PST 4:00 a.m. the same day

LANGUAGE

The official language in Argentina is Spanish. Please consult with your guide on translations, if needed.

AIRPORT INFORMATION

At most international airports, passengers cannot be met inside secured areas. This includes Immigration,

Customs halls and Baggage Claim. Our representative will greet you as you exit these restricted areas; look

for the person holding the signboard with your name on it if your private transfer is included.

Before departing, remember to tag your checked luggage with brightly colored tags which help identify

your luggage quickly.

PROTECTIONS AND PRECAUTIONS

Use the safes where available in your accommodations to secure your valuables, especially passports,

medications, jewelry, money and electronics. If you must carry valuables, keep them on your person at all

times; do not leave them unattended.

Visitors to big cities and popular tourist destinations should be alert as street crime can be a problem. Be

mindful of your surroundings and take extra caution in crowds.

Photocopy the personal information pages of your passport; leave one copy with a family member or

friend and pack another separately from the passport itself. You may want to scan and email a copy to

yourself for easy, online access. This will help speed up the replacement process.

ETIQUETTE AND PHOTOGRAPHY

Unless you are shooting a crowded public scene, it is considered courteous to ask permission before taking

pictures of local people, especially small children. Please be respectful of local people who do not wish to

be photographed. Photography is not permitted at some locations, which may include government

buildings, museums, art galleries, private houses, etc. These areas are usually clearly marked. If in doubt,

please ask. Be sure to pack ample amounts of batteries and memory cards or film for your camera and

video equipment, along with the appropriate charging cables. A dustproof case or sealable plastic bags and

lens brush are also recommended.

FOOD AND DRINK

Do not use tap water for drinking or brushing teeth. Even “purified” water in open containers should be

avoided. It is always preferable and safer to use only bottled or canned water. Regardless of precautions,

changes in water and diet can result in mild abdominal upsets and nausea. To prevent serious illness,

avoid suspect foods such as uncooked vegetables, peeled fruit, un-pasteurized milk and milk products.

Beware of any food or drink sold by street vendors.

SHOPPING

Many guests enjoy the chance to purchase items that reflect their destination, and so as a courtesy, your

guide may recommend a particular shop or arrange a shopping visit. Please note, however, that these

recommendations should not be taken as our endorsement of the shop, merchandise and/or pricing. You

assume all responsibility for any transactions that take place, including shipping arrangements that are

made. The decision to shop while travelling is a personal choice and shopping is never compulsory. If at

any point during your journey you feel pressured to shop or make purchases, please immediately discuss

the matter with your guide and report to Trip Connoisseurs.

Throughout South America, prices at hotel shops and tourist shops are generally fixed; however, when

shopping at the local markets, bargaining is expected. To avoid disappointment, we suggest the following

guidelines:

• Compute the exchange rate and thoroughly review credit card receipts before signing.

• Take your purchases home with you whenever possible. Airfreight can take many months and actual

shipping charges can be excessive. Customs delays, fees and regulations can further complicate the issue. If

you choose to ship purchases, we suggest taking a picture of the item(s) and/or marking them in some

way to ensure you receive what was purchased. For example, you could write your name on the backside

of a rug. Determine if your shipment will be delivered door-to-door or to the nearest customs facility, as is

often the case. Most goods shipped from other countries to Canada or the United States are subject to

Customs duty.

• Duty taxes, if applicable, are paid as you re-enter Canada or the United States. Regardless of assurances

by merchants, these cannot be prepaid on your behalf. Currently, each person is entitled to an $800 dutyfree

exemption, however, may only bring one liter of alcoholic beverages, 200 cigarettes and 100 cigars.

• Keep all sales receipts for items purchased throughout your trip and try to pack all items that you will

need to declare together. This will ease the Customs process upon re-entry into Canada, Consult

http://www.dutyfreecanada.com, for the U.S. Consult the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website for

more details. http://www.cbp.gov/

COMMUNICATIONS

Contact your cellular telephone provider to determine if your phone operates on the Global System for

Mobile Communications (GSM) and what, if any, activation may be required. If your phone is not GSMenabled,

you may find that renting a phone specifically designed for use overseas is the most practical

option.

TIPPING GUIDELINES

While decisions regarding tipping rest entirely with you, we suggest the following gratuities (noted in U.S.

dollars) depending on the type of journey:

Local Guides: $10-15 per person, per day (full day)

Drivers $8-10 per person, per day (full day)

BRAZIL

From the jungle calls of the Amazon to the thong-clad crowds of Copacabana beach, Brazil is an

intoxicating mix of the big, the bold and the beautiful, perennially one of the world’s favourite destinations

It’s also one of the largest countries on the planet, with an awesome array of treasures to match. Its vast

coastline is fringed with soft sands and island getaways; the Amazon Basin teems with an unrivalled mass

of flora and fauna; and the wetlands of the Pantanal, the largest on Earth, support a staggering diversity of

wildlife.

And then there’s the Iguaçu Falls, an unforgettable natural spectacle featuring hundreds of waterfalls,

which cascade from the tropical rainforest as blue morpho butterflies flit through the spray.

Undoubtedly the greatest draw, however, are the Brazilians themselves; probably the most hedonistic

people on earth. Whether it’s Rio’s effervescent Cariocas going overboard at Carnival, or São Paulo’s sultry

citizens gyrating in chic nightclubs, Brazilians love having fun.

Their irrepressible joie de vivre finds its best outlet through music and dance. Samba, lambada and bossa

nova are Brazil’s best-known musical exports, but visitors can also discover a plethora of other genres,

from the Northeast’s forró to the punchy bass of baile funk coming out of Rio’s favelas.

Adrenaline junkies can go wild in Brazil; shooting the big surf of Santa Catarina; bouncing in beach buggies

over the sand dunes of northern Natal; snorkeling in Fernando de Noronha National Park; or abseiling in

the Chapada Diamantina National Park.

Or you can take life easy and let Brazil come to you by lolling in a hammock on an Amazonian ferry,

looking out for the occasional macaw, or browsing the backstreets of colonial towns such as Ouro Preto

and Paraty, which are lined with architectural monuments and chic boutique hotels.

Whatever you’re looking for, rest assured, Brazil has it in spades.

Area: 8,515,770 sq km (3,287,957 sq miles).

Population: 202.7 million (2014).

Population density: 23.8 per sq km.

Capital: Brasília.

Government: Federal Republic.

Head of state: President Dilma Rousseff since 2011.

Head of government: President Dilma Rousseff since 2011.

Electricity: Brasília and Recife, 220 volts AC; Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, 110-120 volts AC. Most larger

hotels will have 110-volt and 220-volt outlets. Plugs usually have two or three round pins.

of up to 90 days without applying for a visa. This visa waiver does not cover activities beyond tourism.

Travellers who are entering Brazil for any type of business meetings, conferences or work-related activities

(including any business activities associated with the Olympic Games) will need to obtain a visa.

Note for visitors to Iguassu Falls If your itinerary includes a visit to Iguassu Falls, you must obtain a tourist

visa in advance for Brazil if you intend to cross the border on a day-trip from the Argentine side to view

the Brazilian side of the Falls. The Brazilian visa cannot be obtained at the border and authorities will

WEATHER

Most of Brazil is located in the tropics and generally, temperatures around the equator range in the 70s

and 80s year-round. As you travel south in the more temperate regions, temperatures will vary and are

similar to that of the southern United States. During the summer, which runs from December to February,

Rio and the northeast experience temperatures which can reach into the 90s.

During the Brazilian winter (June to September) Rio and the surrounding area enjoy constant trade winds

and the weather is similar to summertime in northern Europe with average temperatures ranging from

about 73°F to 80°F. The Amazon region is hot and very humid and usually experiences heavy rain showers

in the afternoons. (The region does have a three to five month dry season which differs on either side of

the equator.) Surprisingly, temperatures in the Amazon rarely go above 90°F and tend to average in the

70s and 80s. Use a website such as weather.com to find average temperatures and rainfall during your

travel times.

Before departing, remember to tag your checked luggage with brightly colored tags which help identify

your luggage quickly.

PROTECTIONS AND PRECAUTIONS

Use the safes where available in your accommodations to secure your valuables, especially passports,

medications, jewelry, money and electronics. If you must carry valuables, keep them on your person at all

times; do not leave them unattended.

Visitors to big cities and popular tourist destinations should be alert as street crime can be a problem. Be

mindful of your surroundings and take extra caution in crowds.

Photocopy the personal information pages of your passport; leave one copy with a family member or

friend and pack another separately from the passport itself. You may want to scan and email a copy to

yourself for easy, online access. This will help speed up the replacement process.

ETIQUETTE AND PHOTOGRAPHY

Unless you are shooting a crowded public scene, it is considered courteous to ask permission before taking

pictures of local people, especially small children. Please be respectful of local people who do not wish to

be photographed. Photography is not permitted at some locations, which may include government

buildings, museums, art galleries, private houses, etc. These areas are usually clearly marked. If in doubt,

please ask. Be sure to pack ample amounts of batteries and memory cards or film for your camera and

video equipment, along with the appropriate charging cables. A dustproof case or sealable plastic bags and

lens brush are also recommended.

FOOD AND DRINK

Do not use tap water for drinking or brushing teeth. Even “purified” water in open containers should be

avoided. It is always preferable and safer to use only bottled or canned water. Regardless of precautions,

changes in water and diet can result in mild abdominal upsets and nausea. To prevent serious illness,

avoid suspect foods such as uncooked vegetables, peeled fruit, un-pasteurized milk and milk products.

Beware of any food or drink sold by street vendors.

SHOPPING

Many guests enjoy the chance to purchase items that reflect their destination, and so as a courtesy, your

guide may recommend a particular shop or arrange a shopping visit. Please note, however, that these

recommendations should not be taken as our endorsement of the shop, merchandise and/or pricing. You

assume all responsibility for any transactions that take place, including shipping arrangements that are

made. The decision to shop while travelling is a personal choice and shopping is never compulsory. If at

any point during your journey you feel pressured to shop or make purchases, please immediately discuss

the matter with your guide and report to Trip Connoisseurs.

Throughout South America, prices at hotel shops and tourist shops are generally fixed; however, when

shopping at the local markets, bargaining is expected. To avoid disappointment, we suggest the following

guidelines:

• Compute the exchange rate and thoroughly review credit card receipts before signing.

• Take your purchases home with you whenever possible. Airfreight can take many months and actual

shipping charges can be excessive. Customs delays, fees and regulations can further complicate the issue. If

you choose to ship purchases, we suggest taking a picture of the item(s) and/or marking them in some

way to ensure you receive what was purchased. For example, you could write your name on the backside

of a rug. Determine if your shipment will be delivered door-to-door or to the nearest customs facility, as is

often the case. Most goods shipped from other countries to Canada or the United States are subject to

Customs duty.

• Duty taxes, if applicable, are paid as you re-enter Canada or the United States. Regardless of assurances

by merchants, these cannot be prepaid on your behalf. Currently, each person is entitled to an $800 dutyfree

exemption, however, may only bring one liter of alcoholic beverages, 200 cigarettes and 100 cigars.

• Keep all sales receipts for items purchased throughout your trip and try to pack all items that you will

need to declare together. This will ease the Customs process upon re-entry into Canada, Consult

http://www.dutyfreecanada.com, for the U.S. Consult the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website for

more details. http://www.cbp.gov/

COMMUNICATIONS

Mobile Communications (GSM) and what, if any, activation may be required. If your phone is not GSM-

option.

PERU

South America doesn’t get much more evocative of generations gone by than Peru. Its mix of ancient

civilisations and dramatic archaeology, set among some of the most extraordinary landscapes on the

planet, means few destinations have as much to offer cultural visitors.

The old Inca settlement of Machu Picchu, now said to be the most visited site on the entire continent, is

just the poster-child – it’s utterly magnificent, of course, but it’s just one of many highlights served up by

the country. From mountain range to jungle, beach to desert, colonial town to cosmopolitan city, it’s a

truly wonderful place to travel.

The coastal capital, Lima, can seem chaotic at times, but scratch the surface and you’ll unearth some great

museums and nightclubs, not to mention some of the region’s best food and drink – from ceviche (raw

fish in citrus) to cecina (dried pork) and from Peruvian wine (yes, really) to pisco sours.

But the country’s real appeal lies outside the capital. Contrasting beautifully with Lima is the ancient

capital of Cusco with its winding cobbled streets and 1,000-plus years of history. It’s the gateway for

visitors to the unmissable Machu Picchu, as well as those walking the Inca trail, but it makes for a

colourful destination in its own right. There’s no better place to learn more about the country’s earlier

times and the upheaval of the Spanish conquest.

Elsewhere in the country, the Nazca Lines, the beautifully excavated ruins of Chan Chan and the

Chachapoya fortress of Kuelap boggle the mind. These extraordinary complexes are all set amid stunning

landscapes.

But Peru doesn’t solely involve rushing up and down mountains or traipsing around ruins. If you’re

searching for a relaxing beach destination, head to Máncora, which is popular with sun-seekers and

surfers. A little more subdued, but no less beautiful, is the quaint coastal town of Huanchaco, where you

can sit on the beach and watch fishermen ply their trade on traditional reed canoes. It’s a far cry from the

lofty Andes and a testament to Peru’s staggering diversity.

Area: 1,285,220 sq km (496,226 sq miles).

Population: 30.1 million (2014).

Population density: 23.5 per sq km.

Capital: Lima.

Government: Republic.

Head of state: President Ollanta Humala since 2011.

Head of government: Prime Minister Pedro Cateriano since 2015.

Electricity: 220 volts AC, 60Hz. North American-style plugs with two flat pins (with or without grounding

pin) and European-style plugs with two round pins are used. 110 volts AC is available in most 4- and 5-star

hotels.

What You Need to Know Before You Go

PASSPORT AND VISA INFORMATION

In order to enter Peru as a citizen of the United States, you will need:

A signed passport valid for 6 months beyond the completion of this trip. Make sure your passport has

enough blank visa pages available for entry and exit stamps.

If you are not a citizen of Canada or the United States, your entry requirements may vary. Please consult

the nearest diplomatic or consular office of the country or countries you will be visiting.

CONSULAR INFORMATION

The US Department of State provides Country Specific Information Sheets for every country in the world,

as well as Travel Alerts and Warnings. Find this information by calling 888 407 4747 or 202 501 4444 or

online at travel.state.gov.

Travel Document for Jeff, Ben & Jerry / Booking Ref: 3005 / 4/20/2016 ( V - 5 )

Page 27 of 35


Contact Canadian embassies and consulates abroad, if you need to get help in case of emergency when you

are travelling in a foreign country. Call the nearest embassy or consulate. or 1 613 996 8885 (call collect

where available)

CURRENCY

Peru’s unit of currency is the Nuevo Sol.

Exchange currency only at authorized outlets such as exchange kiosks, banks and hotels. Only exchange

what you feel you will need while visiting. Do not to convert currency through unofficial, “black market”

vendors. Save all receipts from any currency transaction. You may be asked to produce them when you

exit the country, and they are required if you intend to reconvert local currency.

The U.S. dollar is as readily accepted throughout Peru as the local currency. However, notes should be

clean and in good condition since foreign bills will be closely examined by merchants and anything that

looks suspicious will be rejected. When leaving a small gratuity however, it is best to tip in local currency.

Most stores and restaurants prefer cash. Carrying dollars in smaller denominations will facilitate your

transactions. ATM access is available in limited locations in major cities and many dispense $20 bills.

We suggest travelling with some U.S. dollars and at least two major credit cards. (Some merchants may

tag on a surcharge of between 6%-10% for credit card purchases). If you have a “Chip and PIN” card, be

careful to shield your number from view while entering it on a keypad; never disclose your PIN verbally.

Notify your credit card company of your travel plans prior to your departure to avoid any fraud concerns.

We do not recommend traveler’s checks as they are not as widely accepted as in previous years.

HEALTH

It is a good idea to read up on any health issues or concerns related to your destination. The Centers for

Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers current health information; it can be reached at 800-232-4636

or online at wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel.

Required vaccination(s) None

We suggest that you see a healthcare provider at least 4-6 weeks before your departure to allow time for

any vaccinations or treatments to take effect. If your journey includes travel to high-altitude Andean

destinations in Peru, you may experience altitude sickness. Please consult your healthcare provider for

suggestions on prevention and treatment.

WEATHER

Peru’s borders are made up of the Amazon rainforest, the Andes Mountains and the South Pacific Ocean

and these dramatically different landscapes also make for distinct weather conditions. The coast is

predominantly arid and mild, the Andean region is temperate to cold, and the eastern lowlands are

tropically warm and humid.

In Peru, the seasons are reversed from the northern hemisphere and winter occurs during the months of

June through August. The highland regions, which include Machu Picchu, Cusco and Lake Titicaca, average

daytime temperatures in the 60s and low 70s with chilly nights.

Along Peru’s sprawling coastline the weather is generally pleasant year-round, although from May to

September, rain clouds usually roll in during the afternoon. The Amazon is hot and humid with

temperatures ranging from 86 – 100 F. The region’s dry season lasts from May to October and from

November to April heavy downpours are common. Use a website such as weather.com to find average

temperatures and rainfall during your travel times.

ELECTRICAL SERVICE

Peru - 220 volts and 50 hertz.

WHAT TO PACK

Daytime attire: Pack comfortable, casual clothing in natural, breathable fabrics. Temperatures will change

as altitudes and time of day change, so it’s best to bring shorts as well as long trousers, and clothing you

can layer.

Travel Document for Jeff, Ben & Jerry / Booking Ref: 3005 / 4/20/2016 ( V - 5 )

Page 28 of 35


Evening attire: Somewhat smarter clothing is appropriate for evening dining in city restaurants. Formal

clothing is not necessary.

If visiting the Peruvian Amazon: expedition-type ventilated long-sleeved shirts and pants (including some

pants with zip-off legs that convert long-pants into shorts). Light and neutral colors are best; black, navy

or other dark colors tend to attract insects. Comfortable, walking shoes with low or no heels Lightweight,

waterproof and well broken-in hiking boots that provide ankle support for hiking in the Andes or for

trekking-related activities in Amazon rainforest regions.

Optional: river sandals such as Tevas®. Sweater or lightweight jacket Lightweight raincoat or poncho

Swimming suit Sunglasses, sun block and a sunhat Mosquito repellent with DEET Lightweight binoculars

(optional) Optional items: a waterproof daypack, a small flashlight, and a lightweight collapsible walking

stick. Simple first-aid kit Prescriptions and medications (We recommend you carry these in their original

bottles and/or packaging.) Charging cables for electronics Voltage converter and adapter plugs

Note: Laundry service is available at your hotels.

Baggage Restrictions

On internal flights in Peru, checked baggage is limited to 50 lbs. per person. Carry-on luggage is limited to

17 lbs. Baggage on trains to and from Machu Picchu is limited to 1 bag or backpack not to exceed 11 lbs.

Depending on your itinerary, tagged luggage can be stored at your hotel in Cusco until you return from

Machu Picchu. (Additional costs may apply.) As a preventative measure, it is recommended that all luggage

be secured with a TSA approved lock.

At most international airports, passengers cannot be met inside secured areas. This includes Immigration,

Customs halls and Baggage Claim. Our representative will greet you as you exit these restricted areas; look

for the person holding the signboard with your name on it. Before departing, remember to tag your

checked luggage with brightly colored markers that will help identify your luggage quickly.

ETIQUETTE AND PHOTOGRAPHY

Please note that if you will be using professional photographic equipment in Machu Picchu, you are

required to obtain special authorization and pay a fee (currently US$360.00). Use of tripods is not allowed

at Machu Picchu without a permit. Authorization may take up to 20 days and should be arranged well in

advance of your arrival. In addition to the fee, you will need to provide us with your dates of travel,

passport details along with the model numbers and brand names of your cameras and photographic

equipment.

INC officials (Peruvian Institute of Culture) at Machu Picchu may not always distinguish between standard

high-end camera equipment and professional camera equipment. If you will be carrying more than one

camera or any specialized lenses, please advise your guide in advance. To avoid problems, you may choose

to keep these in your daypack or a small bag and carry only a smaller camera into the site.

Unless you are shooting a crowded public scene, it is considered courteous to ask permission before taking

pictures of local people, especially small children. Please be respectful of local people who do not wish to

be photographed. Photography is not permitted at some locations, which may include government

buildings, museums, art galleries, private houses, etc. These areas are usually clearly marked. Do not

photograph church interiors while there is a service in progress. If in doubt, please ask. Be sure to pack

ample amounts of batteries and memory cards or film for your camera and video equipment, along with

the appropriate charging cables. A dustproof case or sealable plastic bags and lens brush are also

recommended.

dollars) depending on the type of journey:

Drivers $8-10 per person, per day (full day)

Airport Transfer Drivers: $5 per person, per transfer

Hotel Porters: $1-2 per bag

Gratuities accepted on board the boat and shared among the staff.

Lodges in Patagonia: $10 per person, per day –

Gratuities accepted at each property and shared among the staff.

OF SPECIAL NOTE

Domestic flights within Peru are often affected by unseasonable weather patterns which can affect flight

schedules on short notice. As a result, our guests on tours within Peru may experience some delays and

possibly flight cancellations during their tour. In the event of such an occurrence on your tour, local

ground operator's staff will do everything to assist you in booking alternate flights or making other travel

arrangements (if necessary). However, any additional expenses incurred due to regional flight cancellations

are the responsibility of the traveller and will need to be paid directly to the airline and/or hotel. You will

need to claim any expenses for these arrangements with your travel insurance company upon your return.

The National Institute of Culture (INC) and the Machu Picchu Historical Sanctuary Management Unit

(UGM) have imposed restrictions on the number of visitors to the citadel at Machu Picchu (2,500 per day)

as well the number of people who may hike Huayna Picchu (400 per day). These regulations are designed

to minimize the damage to the ruins and terrain and to conserve this historical resource. In order to

ensure you have access to Machu Picchu or hike Huayna Picchu, tickets must be purchased in advance of

your arrival. If you wish to hike to Huayna Picchu you should advise Trip Connoisseurs at time of booking

so that arrangements can be made for you to participate in this activity. Hikes up the mountain are

permitted twice a day at 7:00 a.m. or 10:00 a.m. (tickets are subject to availability). Hikers sign in prior to

beginning the hike and sign out on their return. The path was originally built by the Incas and is

comprised of uneven stone steps that ascend steeply in a zigzag pattern up the mountain.

The hike is tiring due to the altitude; however the views over Machu Picchu at the lookout points are

rewarding. In total, the hike takes approximately an hour each way. Elevation at the summit is 8,858 feet

above sea level and the hike is approximately 0.5 miles long with a vertical elevation gain of 900 feet. Leve

of difficulty: Difficult (mountain hikers need to be fit.)

In order to secure your domestic airline tickets, train tickets and entrance into Machu Picchu and tickets

for the optional Huayna Picchu hike, Trip Connoisseurs requires a copy of your passport at time of

booking confirmation.

piece at 20kg each. Certain routes have even lower restrictions. We recommend you check with the airline

for specific restrictions that may apply to your journey.
