Machu Picchu Tour Pricing

2023 and 2024 Trip Pricing: $1,690 US Dollars, or £1,350 GBP* for 5 Days and 4 Nights 

 

Inclusions: 

 

  • The tour package includes all lodging, meals*, and access fees to reserves, parks, and other birding sites. 

  • Premier Bird Guide: All of our tours use the services of an excellent bird guide, often a well-recognized expert on birding in this area. These Peru trips have an excellent guide in either José Antonio Padilla or Lelis Navarrete.

  • Top-Rated Preparation Services: We support your preparation for the trip. We provide information on the birds you will see and all the travel details, including all logistic details (arrival plans, trip itinerary, lodging details, and more), information on entry into Peru and information on travel health issues, packing information, and more. Most of our clients comment that our Trip Participation Guide is the best they have ever seen. 

  • Transport and Airport Transfers: 

         o Local ground transport is included. This includes a large transport van (and/or jeep as needed) for most of the trip.  
         o We also have a driver or guide pick you up at the airport upon arrival, and transfers for internal flights are included, and we arrange for a transfer back to the airport at the end of the trip.  

  • Acre for Bird Conservation: As part of our efforts to support bird conservation, we purchase in the name of most of our customers an acre of wilderness to support bird conservation. As our trip prices are often 20% (and often even a better deal) less than our competition, this does not really cost you more and it is a fun way to support bird conservation around the world. 

  • Small Group Pricing: All the prices mentioned above are for tour groups of six to eight participants. We are happy to provide pricing for private groups with fewer than six participants.

 

*Pricing Notes and More Details:

  • US Dollar Pricing: This tour is priced in US Dollars.

  • Pricing in British Pounds: (1) Our 2024 (and late 2023) price estimates are mostly based on US Dollars; so, our GBP/British Pound pricing is based upon an exchange rate of .79 GBP (British Pound) per US Dollar (the exchange rate on May 8, 2023). (2) We will charge you the actual transaction rate here, but please note that we work to minimize transaction costs. Using Transferwise, we usually pay under one-half a percent (and sometimes less) on the actual exchange. (3) Due to costs related to UK travel regulations, our tours booked and paid through BlueTailBirding.com (for the UK and European clients) will cost 200 GBP more. Please contact us anytime with questions here.   

  • Bank Fees: We do not charge bank fees for wire transfers for clients paying into our accounts in the United States, the United Kingdom, and/or Canada.

  • Note on Meal Inclusion: Meals include three meals per day during any full day of the trip. The arrival day includes the cost of lunch and supper. The departure day includes the cost of breakfast and lunch.

  • Note on Beverage Inclusion: Most of our meals are provided by the lodges, and we follow their practices in providing beverages at meal time. Breakfast usually includes coffee or tea and/or juice (as provided by the lodge), and box lunches include either bottled water or juice. Other beverages served at supper are your choice and are an additional expense that you pay to the restaurant directly. We provide water at the table for supper. We also provide bottled water during the birding day.

  • Group Size: We anticipate a group of 6 to 8 participants, and pricing is based on this group size.     

 

Others and Optional Costs for Booking the Trip:


Single Room Supplement: $280 USD or £220 GBP* is the price we charge for the additional cost of anyone not sharing a room with another birder (and/or a spouse). If you want a single room, please let us know. We are often able to find a roommate for those wanting to share a room.

Notes on Other Tour Costs: Exclusions:  

  • For those doing the Machu Picchu extension, you will also need to pay for your train ticket to Machu Picchu.  We usually book these tickets for $150 to $200 USD (or 120 to 160 GBP). We will bill the actual costs.

  • The tour fee does not include taxes/fees for entering or exiting the country, telephone calls, laundry, and other items of a personal nature.

  • Tips for birding guides and trip drivers are not included in the tour price.
