"Awesome leadership, great preparation, outstanding food, a new adventure at every turn and....the contrast from 14000 ft. peaks to jungle canopy was what brought it all together....two worlds, one civilization, new friendships, and lots of fun. We'll be back!"

LOUIS C., SCOTTSDALE AZ

 

"One final note - over the four days, one couldn't help looking over at the other groups of trekkers, observing and even chatting with along the trail. From groups of 2 to what looked like other groups of 30+ people, I don't think I found any group that was as well looked after as our group. You can stop looking now - go ahead and book with Guiding Peru."

SUSTAINABLE TOURISM

Guiding Peru believes that being environmentally-conscious is a big part of being sustainable. But it’s not the only thing to consider as a company or destination can be “green” and still not be sustainable. When it comes to sustainability, our company takes into consideration and practices the following 3 compnents: environmental, economic, and socio-cultural. We believe that in order for tourism to be truly considered “sustainable tourism” all three practices must be implemented.

Cultural impact of tourism in Peru

B. CULTURAL IMPACT

Guiding Peru promotes Socio-cultural sustainability by minimizing negative impacts on the regions and people we visit through promoting cultural exchange and preserving local traditions. This is achieved by including the locals in the tours we provide. By having the community involved, we not only offer our guests a more genuine experience, but the locals see tourism positively as they take pride in sharing their cultures.

Sustainable Peru tourism company economic impact

A. TOURISM IMPACT

Due to the high volume of tourism, the Cusco Region has the potential for damage to both the natural environment and the man-made environment (historic buildings and ruins). Our company and staffbelieve that by educating our guests to respect both, our goal in preserving this Region of Peru for generations to follow will be a reality.

C. THE SOLUTION

Guiding Peru believes that economic sustainability builds relationships in the remote areas we travel through by keeping a portion of the money earned local.  We believe this is the key to making our company’s tourism venture in Cusco sustainable. Together, we will continue to strive to be a pillar of our community – setting a precedent for an honest, fair and environmentally sustainable business.
