Community-Based Tourism in Peru

Sustainable rural tourism in Peru… It’s why we started this tour company back in 2009! We believe that travel should be about supporting local communities and interacting with the people who call this place home.

We encourage all our guests to participate in Community-Based Tourism in Peru during their visit to our country. These tours, in particular, are focused on interaction and having a positive impact. 

Our Complete Guide to Community-Based Tourism in Peru elaborates more on what this type of tourism means to us and why it is so important.
