Behind The Scenes In Peru

What’s involved in getting a tour back up and running in the wake of a global pandemic?

Ahead of bringing travellers back to experience one of the highlights of Peru — the four day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu — G Adventures operated a pilot project to finalize heightened health and safety measures along the route.

From Jan. 23 to 26, members of the G Adventures team joined local travel associations and local authorities who manage the trail, to see its health and safety protocols, which were created in collaboration with Cleveland Clinic and in partnership with the Adventure Travel Trade Association, in action.

“We walked the full four days as we would do with travellers, as it was important to be able to check the health and safety measures at different points of the trail,” says Angie Bezold, operations manager Cuzco, G Adventures, who took part in the expedition.
