Your Tour Guide


I have been a lover of nature and adventure sports for many years. After years of expeditions such as trekking and mountaineering in Peru, I became an experienced professional. I improved my skills and became certified as a mountain guide, by the International Union of Mountain Guide Associations (UIAGM), and the Association of Mountain Guides of Peru (AGMP). Let me share some of my most challenging and memorable expeditions.
