State Department Security Message for Cusco
We are still a little ways off from our Tauck trip to Machu Picchu and the Galapagos, which departs May 7. We are concerned, however, about the February 13 security message from the U.S. State Department about a potential kidnapping threat in Cusco for U.S. citizens. State Department employees are prohibited from personal travel to that region because of the threat. We will be contacting Tauck and our travel agent, but would like to know what steps Tauck would take in a situation like this to protect our safety. Would the trip be canceled and our money refunded? would we be rescheduled for a later time when it might be safer? Has anyone traveled with Tauck before in a similar situation? We have paid for about half the trip, but the full amount will be due soon and we would like to know our options.
