Why are custom trips often regarded as superior to self-planned trips or a series of individual tours?

Our custom trips offer a distinct advantage over self-planned trips or a collection of individual tours for several compelling reasons. These tours are tailored to your preferences, providing a more enriching and seamless travel experience. 


Our custom trips in Latin America are carefully designed to match your unique interests, preferences, and travel style. How do we ensure this perfect alignment? By getting to know you through direct communication, achieving a level of familiarity that guides our customization process.

Unlike off-the-shelf tours, which often follow a generic path, custom trips allow for a level of personalization — sometimes even more than self-planned itineraries — that truly makes the trip yours. 

Like other indigenous communities in Peru, the villagers realized that their skills are an asset that needs to be displayed to keep them alive.

Local Expertise

When you choose a custom trip with Impactful Travel, you gain from our deep local knowledge and expertise. Thanks to our strong community connections, we provide exclusive access to experiences and locations not open to the average traveler. Our insights lead you to hidden gems, authentic encounters, and unique adventures off the beaten path, enhancing your travel experience. Imagine exploring our delightful destinations not just as a tourist, but as a friend shown around by a local!

Hassle-Free Planning

Planning a trip — especially to less familiar or remote destinations — can be daunting and time-consuming, often feeling like navigating a labyrinth. Impactful Travel’s custom trips take the hassle out of travel planning.

Our travel specialists handle the logistics, from accommodations and transportation to activities and dining, ensuring a smooth, stress-free experience. This comprehensive approach allows you to focus on enjoying the trip rather than worrying about the details.

Support & Safety on Your Trip

Traveling under the umbrella of a custom trip with Impactful Travel provides an added layer of support and safety. In case of unexpected challenges or emergencies, you have a dedicated operations team to turn to for immediate assistance. This peace of mind is invaluable, particularly in today’s unpredictable travel landscape and especially when visiting distant lands. This is also especially important for families with small children or elders, and especially crucial for travelers with disabilities.

Sustainable & Impactful Travel

Impactful Travel specializes in sustainable and responsible tourism practices, creating custom trips designed to have a positive impact on local communities and the environment.

These custom trips, adhering to our rules of being as long as possible with a minimum duration of 6 days, embody the essence of slow travel. By choosing this mode of travel, you’re not just visiting a place; you’re immersing yourself in it, allowing for a deeper connection to the culture, people, and nature. This approach supports conservation efforts, cultural preservation, and community development, offering you a chance to contribute meaningfully to the places you visit.
