    Altitude Sickness

    As soon as individuals plan their trip to Peru, specifically Cusco, concerns about altitude sickness arise. The air at high altitudes contains less oxygen than at sea level, compelling your body to work harder to procure the oxygen it needs. Over several days at high altitude, your body adjusts to the reduced oxygen levels in the air.

    Initial symptoms of altitude sickness may include a headache, fatigue, followed by loss of appetite, nausea or vomiting, dizziness, difficulty sleeping, and labored breathing during exercise. Should any of these symptoms worsen, please contact our office, and we will assist you in seeking medical attention.

    Community Engagement

    At Peru Private Tours (PPT), we take immense pride in our community initiatives. This is the core objective of our company. We work directly with villages to help meet the needs of their families. We support village children by providing them with school supplies, books, and clothing.

    We regularly organize clean-up activities along the paths we traverse, ensuring we leave attractions better than we found them.
