Responsible tourism: Peru 21 day itinerary


In Peru we mainly book small-scale, low key accommodation options for our clients. Mainly clients will stay in Pousada's which are historical buildings that have been restored to help keep tourism sustainable in a highly visited area..

Exploring the scared valley, you will be staying in accommodation that compliments the beautiful landscape of the area without damaging the wonderful cultural heritage of one of Peruís most popular area.

Heading in to the Amazon you will experience sustainability at its best, lodges running with minimal electricity, educational experiences on the flora and forna which is still used in traditional ways. With excursions focusing on the not only the wildlife but also protecting this amazing ecosystem.

Our local partner in Peru also shares the same values as us in terms of using as little energy in the office as possibe and also recycling. We both use minimal paper in our offices and have all paper used recycled. Including the travel documentation provided on arrival to Peru. We both use minimal paper in our offices and have all paper used recycled, including the documentation provided on arrival to Peru. This documentation covers a range of topics such as wildlife and fauna, how to prevent destruction through sensible buying of local artefacts made of rare wood and not posing for photos with wildlife and interfering with it's nature habitat. Also included is a 'Keeping it Beautiful' section which reminds and encourages our customers to not litter, leaving rocks and plants where they are and trying to set a good example for other tourists and locals alike.


Our local partners actively participate in donation campaigns to send clothes or foodstuff to different provinces in the country, such as the highest cities in Puno and Cusco, and poorer areas of Lima.

Offering tours to off the beaten track areas not visited on the tourist trail enriches not only customer experience supports the local community, keeping areas true to their roots and helping to enrich the culture and history.

At home we also strive to support local businesses, charities and the community. We use a local catering company for fresh, healthy lunches in our Brighton office everyday, use a local recycling company for all our waste, use small independent companies for work events such as the summer party where we took an African drumming lesson in a local church hall and offer all our staff a day out of the office to volunteer at the charity of their choice.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

A difficult question - we kept thinking this is the best day yet and found that there was another amazing experience awaiting us next day. Highlights for me
were Machu Pichu and the Amazon.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

There is a huge variation in temperatures and I was glad we had taken a good mixture of clothes suitable for the chillier points and the hot ones! Also read up
about Altitude Sickness before you go and be prepared to get something like Altivista from the chemist's when you get there.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I hope so -it was very clear that reducing the environmental impact is given a high priority in the Amazon.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Definitely the vacation of a lifetime! Personally I have wanted to see Machu Pichu since I was about 9 years old and first read about it! It was well worth the 59
year wait! My husband hadn't really though of visiting Peru until I suggested it last year but he is now as much of a fan as I am - he particularly enjoyed the
