Why travel with Peru Spirit Adventure

What Makes Us Different!…Here’s, Why You Should Book with Us

WE ARE A 100% LICENSED AND A DIRECT LOCAL TOUR OPERATOR BASED IN CUSCO. WE’RE NOT A GRINGO TRAVEL COMPANY.

Yeah! We are a real local company based in Cusco. We are all local from the founder to the muleteer. Our Day Tours, Trekking, and Expeditions are only operated by PERU SPIRIT ADVENTURE with our professional staff and crew, we never pass you onto a 3rd party. Generally, foreign companies come to Peru to become rich without a General Tax on Sales or Tax Contribution to our country. If you didn´t know that, according to the United Nations, for every $ 100 spent on the tour in developing the country. Normally, almost all of the money flows back to large companies operating outside the destination countries. Peru Spirit Adventure is a local company truly. We guarantee that your travel expenses will support the local economy and improve the lives of Peruvians by contributing our general sales tax. In addition, Peru Spirit Adventure was born out of a simple observation. Our founder, Efrain Quispe, who has worked for other foreigner travel companies & local travel companies as a tour leader witnessed a large group of exasperated tourists being joined in a group on a trek to Machu Picchu through Inca Trail, where no one was able to get that memorable experience expected on their adventure, and witnessed other large groups of exasperated tourists being shepherded onto a tour bus in Peru. These sad scenes provoked a light-bulb moment: what Peru needed was a specialized, customer-oriented travel agent that treated travelers not as faceless, nameless numbers to fill coach spaces, but as individual people. Ever since, Peru Spirit Adventure has been providing private, flexible and personalized tours in Peru.

WE ARE A PROFESSIONAL TEAM, WE HIRE ONLY HIGHLY QUALIFIED FLUENT ENGLISH SPEAKING LOCAL GUIDES FOR OUR TOUR AND TREK.

OUR OUTDOOR EQUIPMENT IS REALLY WHAT REALLY MAKES PERU SPIRIT ADVENTURE STAND OUT FROM THE COMPETITORS.

We dedicate to make sure, to have the best equipment available. We own one of the best four season tents whose size is a four-person tent, but we use them for two guests. And other camping equipment, dining tents with comfortable table and chairs, and a kitchen tent manned by a professional cooking staff. Our fine cookware and tableware are out of common and ordinary than other companies normally use on the Treks; which, make a lot of difference. In addition, we have hiking poles, Therma-Rest mattresses, and great goose-down sleeping bags for renting. With us, you’ll enjoy this great equipment, and your adventure will be pleasant and enjoyable. Hygienic Private Toilet Tents: Peru Spirit Adventure set up spotless, environmentally friendly toilet tents, right at your camping and lunch spot. This way, you don´t have to bother with the park toilets, that are not in great conditions. You don´t need to add additional hiking in the middle of the night when you have to use the bathroom. In addition, this method lessens our footprint on the environment, while adding the convenience and luxury of a private bathroom to your adventure & expeditions.
