As a responsible travel company, we prioritize local goods and services and work with the communities we visit to develop and improve our trips and their impact on local residents and the environment.
“We travelled to Cusco to undertake an 8 day trek through the highland jungles, canyons, mountain passes and secluded Inka ruins of Peru and had an awesome time with Ayni Peru. From the timely airport transfers, customized day tripstreks to several area ruins while acclimatizing (Lourdes was such a knowledgeable guide, tolerating my constant questions about the history, geography and culture of the area), and then to the actual trek itself, we were always looked-after and could focus on the amazing places.”
“We wanted to spend time understanding how alpaca are managed in their natural habitat and because of Ayni Peru’s contacts we had the most marvellous experience which really met all our objectives. This was just part of the 11 day tour organised for us, covering all the usual places, and including a stay on Suasi Island in Lake Titicaca, here we had vicuna wandering across the beach at breakfast – wonderful!”
“We are a family with three children aged 12, 14 and 16 and we booked the Lares Trek with Domingo as a guide. It was fantastic because the trek as organised by Ayni Peru Expedition is unique as we camped in remote villages and learned about the way people lived, their agriculture and of course alpaca’s and llamas. We also appreciate Domingo’s close relationship with the local communities and his understanding of social entrepreneurship. In total we stayed three weeks in Peru and Ayni Peru Expedition helped us to arrange other trips for example to the Colca Canyon and the Tampobata National Reserve which were both fantastic trips!”
In short we had an amazing tour of Nazca, Cusco, Machu Picchu and the Uyuni salt flats, and couldn`t have been happier with Ayni Peru`s exceptional planning and service.
