We are leaving on the tour monday.. We are wondering what day during the tour is it you visit the school? We are actually quite excited to do this. My only question is it looks like it maybe on a sunday we are there?



does anyone know what day of the tour your visit.

When I went it was the day you travel to Puno on the bus, if you can figure that out that's the day.

Sharon is correct. Day #7 (travel from Cusco to Puno) is when school visits would occur. If your Day #1 is on a Monday, then you are correct that Day 7 would fall on a Sunday, and so unfortunately no school visit will happen.
If a school visit is scheduled for any tour, then Gate 1 would have sent you an email notifying you of the event and describing how to prepare for it. If you did not receive such an email, then that would probably confirm that a school visit is not scheduled to occur during your tour.

There is still a possibility that you will visit a school during your tour. Although for sure it will not be the one between Cuzco and Puno (Sunday) it could be one of the other three or four schools that the Gate 1 Foundation has added sponsorship to in Peru.

We visited the school on the way to Puno, and as pointed out we received the preparation email before departure. We have also visited other schools in Turkey and Thailand, and received no advanced warning of these visits before the beginning of those tours. Perhaps your school visit will fall into that catagory.

I hope you can visit a school. Everyone agrees that this is always a tour highlight.

we recieved an email telling us that we will be visiting the school. so maybe it is another school?



our current tour shows us leaving cusco on sunday to puno..so it wont be on sunday. or maybe they will take our donations and give them at a later date. which will be good as well..

Your school visit may be while you are in Cuzco. I think one of the schools G 1 has added is in that city. Go to the Gate 1 Foundation tab and check out the work they are doing in Peru.
