Community-Based Tourism in Peru

At Responsible Travel Peru, we believe wholeheartedly in the power of Community-Based Tourism. In fact, it’s why we started this tour company back in 2009! Supporting local communities, interacting with the people who call this place home… this is what travel should be about. We encourage all of our guests to participate in Community-Based Tourism during their visit to Peru. These tours, in particular, are focused on interaction and positive impact.
