From the day you arrive, we will not take you through the crowded tourist routes; instead we have carefully organized our itineraries going to off the beaten track locations and visiting the most interesting and authentic sites. For sure there will be some visits to the most popular places such as Machu Picchu or Ollantaytambo; however, even when visiting these places, we will try to arrive at less crowded times and accommodate the visit using different circuits so you have the feeling that the place is just for you. We also believe that part of your visit should include contact with the locals to understand their way of life – therefore whenever possible we include visits to native Andean communities, a homestay or agricultural activities where you will able to not only watch but participate hand by hand with the locals.
