Before you go
We know that many things add up to a perfect trek or expedition; weather and route conditions, logistics, equipment, cooks, porters and food; our Guides’ experiences and interests go beyond merely climbing mountains or explore Inca temples. You’ll find them a wealth of information on nearly aspect of your trek or tour; local culture, language, history, food, plants and animals, weather, and geology. Many of them are also professionals in other fields, including archaeology, history, and geology.
Peru has amazing mountain scenery and mystical Incan archeological sites. To us trekking and tour guiding is an art so we provide a select team of professionals all of them nature lovers, and experienced English speakers who can explain the history and culture of our homeland.
Our staff takes a slightly different approach to life than regular office employees. We take pride in looking after our team and pay our staff (including cooks and porters) an above average wage.
We support the rural communities with our Community Projects by donating a percentage of our profits organized directly by us or in association with local non-governmental organizations (NGO’s). We mainly support rural communities from where our porters and other employees come from. We also support small communities along the routes that we operate. In the past we have received help from tourists who have donated second hand clothes, shoes, school equipment, etc. Every Christmas we choose three communities and coordinate with them on different projects. The same day our Inca trail cooks prepare hot chocolate which is served with a Christmas cake and share presents with the children of the community.
Create and generate job for our local community people who love and have passion in this work with effort and dedication to support their families for better life. Peruvian government has never considered them in their plans of development. We feel this is an obligation and compromise for us.
