Proud Sponsors of Picaflor House
The importance of giving back to local communities is fundamental to our company mission. We also think that It is especially important to help those that are most vulnerable in the community. By purchasing your vacation package with us you directly help the children at Picaflor House. Read more about our support for this community project.
ETHICAL CONSCIENCE - DOING THE RIGHT THING
Our company ethos is bound in a sustainable local approach to our travel experiences which inherently flows out to the broader good of our wider planet. The core focus of our efforts to truly make an impact and working for example with projects like Picaflor House and Medlife who offer life-changing support in Latin America. What matters here are the fundamental needs of existence.
We believe that travel is essential to our understanding of the planet we live on and the eclectic mix of people that live upon it. We know that Latin America offers many unique opportunities for deep and meaningful travel experiences, and we want to help connect our clients with the best that Latin America has to offer. We want to showcase the essence of each destination, by developing rewarding and meaningful trips that connect the visitor with Mother-Nature, local people, the history, and the gastronomy. We want to grow to be the best (not the biggest) provider of experiential travel in Latin America and create a trusted name for ourselves which is synonymous with quality, service and experiences. We are concerned about the environmental consequences that travel imposes on our planet, and we will actively engage in projects which will have a long lasting impact on improving the environment. We also realize the irony of selling high-value trips into impoverished Latin American countries for the enjoyment of foreign visitors. Therefore, it is our vision to actively use the proceeds of the money generated in a positive way to help improve the lives of those that live on the continent. It is our vision and responsibility to take travel in a new direction, where travel nourishes the soul, broadens the mind and has a positive change on visitor and the visited.

Customer Care to the Ends of the Earth.
We have been in business for over a decade on this continent. Throughout that time, we have seen and lived through all the potential challenges of traveling here. Our clients from the Galapagos to Cape Horn and the ends of the earth have enjoyed our performances when issues arise. They do arise, but it is how we take responsibility and ownership of those problems that sets our staff apart. Our raison d’être is bounded in the saying that trust starts with the truth and ends with the truth.
Committed Actions to Improve the Environment for Both People and Nature
Each person that travels with our company helps to improve the lives of local people. We are a proud sponsor of the Picaflor House project near Cusco Peru. Picaflor House provides essential after school programmes, health & hygiene, English classes and fun activities to the children of Oropesa and several small villages. Many families here speak Quechua and so the school helps them to understand and complete their homework which is in Spanish. Without such fundamental early educational assistance, and activities which they are enriched by, these children would lead a forever disadvantaged life.
