Should the Operator cancel the tour due to forces of nature or any other reason after the tour has departed from Cusco no refunds will be submitted. Customers take full responsibility in knowing the Operator is not able to control weather and there is always the possibility of hiking in rain, wind, snow or fog. Conditions can change at any moment and without notice. Should the Operator need to cancel the tour midway through the hike, no refunds will be provided.
