About our trips
Peru is one of the most diverse countries to visit and offers something to cater to everyone’s tastes. At CULTURAS PERU we aim to provide you with the very best of Peru. For this reason, we offer a wide variety of programs, from adventure hikes to culture and ecology tours. Of course we also organize trips catered to the individual’s personal rhythm and style.
It is very important for us that each visitor has enough space and time to enjoy this unique experience completely. Therefore we work with small groups and offer personalized attention. We don’t want you just to observe but also to participate, getting to know our culture and traditions. We can’t promise eternal sunshine on your trip or the sight of condors, jaguars or other wild animals. We promise, though, to make your stay an unforgettable experience, through our professionalism and dedication.
We have a professional team of co-workers with years of experience, dedicated to offering the service and attention you deserve: bilingual guides will teach you the wonders of our history and culture, creative cooks will surprise you with their magical ability to providing delicious meals in the remotest campsites, wranglers with their mules and porters will take care of our equipment and organize the most comfortable campsites, not forgetting our office staff who takes care of all the logistics, assuring that everything goes according to plan.
All our personnel is trained in their specific area: first aid, cooking (new recipes) and hygiene (camp sites which respect the ecology of the place) and our equipment (tents, cars, etc.) is constantly maintained and renewed for your comfort and safety. On our hikes and expeditions we provide the best camping equipment (spacious EUREKA double and comfortable dining tents), all our gear is transported on mules and we have saddle horses as support for those who would rather ride.
Our main objectives are: Preserving the attractions that we include in our programs (we are members of the Peruvian Association of Adventure and Eco-Tourism Agencies: CARTUC), the fair and decent treatment of each
one of our Culturas Peru Co-Workers (Porters, Wranglers, Cooks and Guides) and of course the security, comfort and satisfaction of our clients. Let us prove to you our professionalism and the quality of our service!
