(COST INCLUDES: flights to/from IAD/DCA and Cusco, Peru, along with transportation, hotel lodging, meals, and supplies during the service volunteer trip – cost is entirely tax-deductible. Hotel cost budgeted based on double occupancy, extra fees apply to those who desire to have their own room.)
(COST DOES NOT INCLUDE: Food on the final day in Cusco and in transit. In addition, it does not include Covid-19 testing in the USA or in Peru. Each participant is required to meet trip requirements in the time frame outlined by Peru and the US government. In addition, the cost does NOT include a health/travel insurance plan. If you desire health or travel insurance, which is HIGHLY recommended, please visit IM GLOBAL.
Note: With the constant changing rules and restrictions related to Covid-19, Endurance Leadership has chosen for each participant to be responsible in getting the necessary Covid-19 testing prior to and during travel. The rules may change at any time related to the vaccine or testing so we will keep each participant up to date on requirements and allow individuals and families to acquire what is necessary for travel. For example, the rules have already recently changed with regard to travel to/from Peru. As of today, a U.S. traveler is required to have a poli molecular test, with a negative result available within 72 hours of arriving in Peru. The USA requires another test before returning state-side, unless the traveler can produce a document proving that the individual has had and survived Covid-19. The current cost of the Covid-19 test in Peru is $40 and again, this cost is not provided by Endurance Leadership.
TRIP ADD-ONS: We have had trip participants in the past add on a Machu Picchu excursion at their own expense. Since there are many variables and choices regarding that trip, please let our staff know your desired return date of travel, so we can make that change before we purchase the group tickets. Here is a link to our travel partner in Peru: VSO PERU They have helped us each year with additional travel services and do an excellent job. Ask to speak with Karem, as she is fluent in English and Spanish and let her know that you are on a Leadership Excursions trip with Will and Sandra Cravens, traveling to and from Cusco, Peru.
