Travelling and trekking along the mountains is one of the best activities in the World. Connecting with nature and conquering your own limits to get to the highest points of the creation can’t be beat by anything.
But this activity needs to be supported by professionals and for that same reason we have our professional trekking guides.
People who know all of the secrets of the land, the best way to trek and also tons of information about every site visited.
The Peru Hike guides are 100% local. From different villages and communities from Cusco. They mastered the craft of leading groups through the most beautiful places and over the highest elevations without losing any bit of information and any tip to make the hiking more enjoyable.
Our guides have graduated in Tourism and passed tests to be able to guide along the treks like the Inca Trail, Salkantay, to mention a few.
All of them will lead your group from beginning to end. The whole journey will be alongside your guides. Every group counts with one guide and if the group is bigger than 8 people there will be 2. They are in charge of the team from the hotel pick up to the hotel drop off.
Your guides are able to communicate in both English and Spanish. Quechua is their main language and they will be more than happy to help translating your words towards the porters and also teaching you some of our ancient language.
An Peru Hike guide knows everything about the path, knows how to manage the cold weather impact on their hikers, knows about all the flora and fauna along the experience, are the best talkers, no team will be bored with our guide and also are amazing photographers. Know all of the best spots to get the best pic at the best time.
Peru Hike was founded under the same philosophy of work it’s followed now. Equality and fair treatment to each member of the team. This way of working led us to be the first company in Cusco to have female guides leading the groups. A practice not popular at all in Cusco but needed. Reason why we started a whole project to empower women to become leading guides, trekking chefs and also porters for the Inca Trail.
We could spend all day talking about our team. About the desire of Lourdes to become a guide. How Luz decided to be at the mountains working as a guide like his husband. Anita being one of the best trekking chefs and also with the dream of becoming a guide. Just a few of so many great stories we were able to witness thanks to our program.
A lot of stories our guides will share with you. You will become a new member of the Green Machine family and will enjoy an experience you will never forget.
