Travel through Peru can be a transformational experience. This unique & culturally historic journey allows an insight into this biodiverse country and it's humble people.

While you stay at great places and eat delicious food, your daytime experiences are off the beaten path and in close contact with the friends and co-workers we have made during the 30 years of working together. Being in the small communities & homes of friends is memorable & FUN!

You know Peru through the eyes, hands and heart of the Andean people, it is a compelling experience. Feel free to ask for more information and references from past travelers, some of whom have gone more than once!

We have limited departures a year. Travel with small group of 10-12 people. Three guides for a group of this size allows for freedom, flexibility and different physical paces and desires. Our goal is for you to have an independant experience — and pursue your passions!
