“Our guides Reuben, Marco and Celia were great. They took care of everything. I enjoyed the conversation and learning about their country. I liked the food and think the meals were well rounded. The hotels were clean and accommodating. Good team. I’d book with them again.”

Top rated Peru tour company


“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!”

Best Machu Picchu trekking tours


“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.”

He started to find the direction his life would take, teaching others to preserve the history of this wonderful land and ensuring the successes of the local people. With over 10 years experience as a professional guide and continuing to take studies of Incan history, tourism and languages Brayan looks forward to educating our guests in the same way.

As early as 5 years of age he began helping his parents on their small farm, with corn or maiz as his specialty. He completed his studies in Pisac, where he walked 1 hour to school each day. During this time he understood that hiking is something that we would like to pursue more as a job when he grew older. Studying in the morning and helping his parents in the afternoon, he considered himself lucky that his parents sent him to school every day, which is something that many others couldn’t do. Today in his Village attitudes towards education are changing, which he is proud to be a part of as many look up to him for his success in competing the tourism program at the University of Cusco.
