Over the years, the commitment of Andean Adventures Peru to quality travel has been the key to the satisfaction expressed by those who travel with us and by the travel industry professionals with whom we have established strategic alliances. In addition, Andean Adventures Peru has received several awards from national and international travel organizations.
Andean Adventures Peru has been honored on several occasions by the Peruvian Ministry of Tourism with certificates, diplomas and trophies acknowledging its commitment to excellence. Among its awards, it has been named as the “Best Regional Adventure Travel Company in Cusco”, while the company’s manager, Raul Medina, has been recognized for his contributions to adventure travel and ecotourism. Andean Adventures Peru tour guides have been named Tour Guide of the Year, and beyond Peru the company has been nominated for the World Quality Commitment (WQC) award, and been awarded the International Trophy by Spain’s Tourism, Hotel and Catering Industry.
The porters employed by our company are Quechua-speaking indigenous Peruvians from local villages. Andean Adventures Peru adheres strictly to the Porters’ Law introduced by the Peruvian government to protect the rights of indigenous porters. Andean Adventures Peru is committed to the well-being of its porters during treks, ensuring that they are properly paid, well fed and comfortable at our campsites.
The Porters’ Law establishes the minimum daily wage payable by trekking companies. It also sets a limit on the maximum weight that a porter can carry on the Inca Trail. This limit includes a personal allowance for items such as blankets and clothing. Each porter is weighed at the start of the trail and then again at Wayllabamba at the start of the second day. Unfortunately, not all companies respect these basic porters’ rights, and find ways to circumvent the regulations. Andean Adventures Peru condemns such attitudes and practices.
Andean Adventures donates a percentage of its income to remote rural communities for the development of basic educational infrastructure and each year provides Christmas presents for the children of these neglected regions of Peru. Christmas 2016
We are able to guarantee our prices because we operate all our own services, both in the rainforest and Andean regions of Peru. Because we have no need to subcontract other operators, we are able to pass on these savings to you. At the same time, the prices of the packages we offer reflect our investment in the very highest standards of service available. We employ the finest professionals and ensure the best employment conditions for our field crews (cooks and porters).
All prices are subject to change without prior notice; we will reconfirm the price at time of booking. Prices do not cover delays and expenses caused by flight delays/cancelations. Single supplements are available on all our tours. Most hotels offer single rooms subject to availability. At our campsites single tents are available, as are single rooms in our rainforest lodge, at an additional cost.
