We are a Peruvian company, based in Cusco, Peru, and manage all operations in house. This permits the opportunity to offer clients innovative treks and tours with custom itineraries, all at extremely competitive rates.
Ayni Peru is passionate about responsible. This means that we support local economies by working directly with the communities we visit and employing local guides and support staff. We offer our clients off the beaten path itineraries, which creates opportunities to spread the benefits of tourism outside of traditional travel circuits. We use environmentally-friendly lodges and accommodations whenever possible, and follow strict guidelines on treks in order to minimize our environmental impact.
We pride ourselves on creating unique and authentic experiences for our clients. Whether it is a trek or a tour, we promise you will see a side of the region that few visitors have the opportunity to enjoy. Even at the most popular attractions, we carefully plan your travel to avoid the bulk of the tour crowds, and to connect with the areas they visit in meaningful ways.
We are able to provide unparalleled in-country support once your travel begins. You will always have a local contact available to consult prior to departure, and reliable, 24-hour support as you travel. In the case that any obstacle or unforeseen issue arises, we are able to respond quickly and effectively to ensure that your trip runs as safe and as smoothly as possible.
As a Cusco-based company, we truly are local experts! Our travel consultants have spent years living and traveling in South America; if you have a question, chances are we have your answer. We visit and re-visit the areas where we operate regularly, allowing Ayni to stay up to date on local events. Our guides and cooks are all licensed and highly experienced, with profound knowledge of the areas we visit.
We are a small business, and each client is truly important to us. We respond quickly to emails (usually within a few hours) and are able to create highly customized itineraries that match our client’s interests and style of travel perfectly. We treat our clients as friends, and often do end up forming friendships that endure long after a trip has ended
