Local Way - our vision of traveling through Peru
Plenty of time to fulfill your wishes and quality time for sharing with country people. Real and authentic experiences carefully planned to fit you. A journey through the immense southern geography of an Andean-Amazonian country.
Hikes, horseback riding and sailing, among car and plane trips to get access to all destinations and attractions we have planned for you. Between the busy capital city, the template high plains and the humid jungle lay the secrets you will gradually discover in the company of our experienced guides, and with the insightful tips of our Digital Concierge services.
Trip designed by Travel Expert Guido
This time your visit to Lima will be a shorty, not meaning that we won’t take any advantage of the limited time as you can choose between a thematic bike tour of food tasting along little establishments, or a scenic walking tour through more visual than caloric attractions.
This is our safe bet to make you feel good while inadvertently acclimatizing to the altitude. Arequipa is charming at the point of becoming unforgettable as it is pretty and easy to move around without guidance. Stay always in touch through the Whatsapp chat and do not miss any of the highlights or the best restaurants in town, as we will always keep all the best tips handy.
The long distances to cover won’t be a problem these days as there are always things to do in the way in and out of Colca. High plains and volcanoes, big and small, wild and domestic furred animals. Herbal infusions to heal the body and country families that do everything to make you feel at home and not to be treated as simple guests. A visit to witness the take-off and soaring of the condors and multiple other choices of activities involving the common chores of the country life. Relaxation and tranquil tours around town in Coporaque.
We looked for the real Titicaca to show you, nothing will be lacking authenticity or good taste. We are sure that the experience with communities and families at shores and islands of the lake will mark you, and nature will do the rest. Navigation, fishing, and walks will be part of the adventure during these tranquil and serene days.
The trip from Puno will not pass inadvertent with all the attractions along the way, but the best will come with the walking tour along the city. There is no better introduction to Cuzco. You will also be granted with free time and will be able to prepare yourselves for the Sacred Valley and The Coffee Route. After visiting Machu Picchu you will get back into town to get to know more and to experience new situations.
It is almost mandatory to contemplate the harmonic work of the Incas with the surroundings and the current functionality of its ancient creations. This time we have picked Pisac and Ollantaytambo for you to visit, but there is a lot more (you might want to stay an extra day to enjoy the Sacred Valley’s splendor).
At Machu Picchu’s backyard, where few ones transit, there are activities that escape from the main current of touristic attractions and that provide significant and enriching experiences. Get to know the people who make of the simple things of life, like sipping a cup of coffee, a whole new discovery, and rejoice with all the expectation that precedes to get closer and closer to the most anticipated moment of your trip.
A day that does not need much of a description. Instead of that, what deserves mention is to remind you the wonderful road you took to finally arrive at this point, and the unparalleled way back you will get after spending the day at Machu Picchu, where the mind blows and the spirit is enriched.
As we promised, now that you are back in the city, how about trying a cooking class? The whole process of preparing a local dish, from buying grocery to tasting it while sitting at a family table in a privately organized activity. Later on, you will have more free time to enjoy Cuzco.
This will be a long journey but when you reach the destination and meet your host you will know everything was worth it. The story of the place where you will spend the next days and that of its owner will be revealing. But as this is not all we want to show you, we will take you for a lake safari in search of the more representative fauna of the region. The jungle has many secrets and sounds of which you will be able to inquire during the campfire nights.
This is actually a day of traveling only, with the purpose to reach Lima for heading back home. You won’t believe that you woke up at the Amazon jungle and that in the end, you will be laying down your head into your very own pillow.
C'est vraiment le PÉROU !!!
Nous avons longuement cherché une agence pour organiser sur mesure notre séjour au PÉROU et nous ne regrettons pas d'avoir choisi Responsibletravelperu. L'organisation en amont et sur place est top, ils sont très à l'écoute de nos souhaits, très réactifs et le prix tout à fait compétitif. Nous voulions aller au devant des communautés andines si possible en dehors des flots de touristes et nous sommes enchantés des rencontres avec les familles et des activités comme le lama-trek ou le cours de tissage à Huilloc Alto. Si vous voulez voyager écolo éthique et responsable, n'hésitez pas, voyagez Responsibletravelperu ! Un grand merci à toute l'équipe et particulièrement à Pauline et Saby

Perfekte Organisation und einmalige Erlebnisse
Respons ist spezialisiert auf Community-Tourismus. Und so besuchte ich eine Bauernfamilie in Coparaque im Vale de Colca, eine Webereikooperative bei Ollantaytambo und die Shipetiari im Regenwald. Natürlich auch die touristischen Highlights wie Machu Picchu, Cruz del Condor, Vale Sagrada, Titicacasee. Alles organisiert durch Respons. Schon bei der Planung war das Interesse am Reisenden spürbar, um den bestpassenden Ablauf zu finden. Für mich als ältere Person waren beispielsweise Ruhetage dazwischen wichtig. Und es hat bei der Umsetzung einfach alles perfekt funtioniert. Was für ein tolles Gefühl, an einem neuen Ort anzukommen - ob mit Flugzeug, Bus oder Kleinbus - und es wartet jemand mit meinem Namen auf einem Schild, um mich zum Hotel oder wohin auch immer zu bringen. Einfach jedes Mal! Und das Ganze zu einem Preis, der dem Vergleich stand hält. Ich bin einfach nur begeistert. Gerne gebe ich auf Wunsch jederzeit mehr Details.

Amazing, unforgettable experience for a solo female traveller!
It is so great to know that my trip has contributed to sustainable tourism, benefiting Peruvians as much as possible, rather than a big package-deal international company. Overall, my trip was a fantastic experience and I’ve come back home with a love of Peru and definitely wanting to return again to revisit some of the same places and explore more of the north as well!

Ha sido una experiencia de viaje espectacular, original y hecha a nuestra medida.
Perú ya de por sí es un país muy preparado para el turismo y la gente es muy amable y atenta, pero Respons nos dió ese plus que buscabamos en cuanto al servicio, la calidad de los guías, las experiencias en diferentes lugares y comunidades locales y la flexibilidad de gestionarnos un viaje bastante hecho a nuestra medida. Definitivamente lo recomiendo a cualquiera que desee visitar Perú a su propio estilo y busque algo más que haciendo una ruta convencional.

We were very pleased with our trip, and especially with Eloy, our wonderful personal guide. The drivers were very helpful and friendly, and the hotels Responsible Travel selected for us turned out to be lovely places to stay. We are committed to sustainable travel, and we feel the trip was much more ecologically sound because we worked with a responsible company. Kudos to everyone involved!

Un magnifique voyage sur mesure à prix modéré
Visite du sud du Pérou (Paracas, Nazca, Arequipa, Chivay, vallée de la Colca, vallée sacrée, Moray, Cuzco, Machu Picchu....). Charmants hôtels. Souci social de l'agence (par exemple, l'hôtel de Cuzco - accueil en anglais et en français - fonctionne parfaitement avec des enfants tirés de la rue et excellemment formés et au profit des enfants déshérités ; un des logements en famille locale et excellents repas parfois en famille péruvienne). Excellents guides locaux, la plupart en français. L'agence était à nos côtés pour pallier nos difficultés au cours du voyage et adapter celui-ci. Un grand merci à ce tour opérateur

We zijn een Belgisch gezin met kinderen van 11, 13 en 14 jaar en gewoon om een avontuurlijke reis in elkaar te steken. We botsten echter op Responsible Travel via het internet en hebben hen aangesproken om een voorstel te maken voor onze reisideeën naar Peru. Heel luisterbereid, hebben ze een voorstel op onze maat gemaakt. Heel flexibel om wat meer of minder luxe in te passen en toch rekening houdend om lokale initiatieven en mensen te steunen. Alles was tip-top in orde naar voorbereiding, organisatie en ook tijdens de reis was men heeeeel bereikbaar en flexibel om nog aanpassingen te maken als we dit vroegen (thanks Saby, Mily & Agnes!)!!! Absolute aanrader. Wij zijn heel lovend over Responsible Travel!

My experience with Reponsable has just been fantastic. I find personalizing one´s trip an exciting way to explore not only Peru, but also other countries. I first had a WhatsApp call with Alejandro to explain him my destination, trip duration and especially, what are my interest points. After that, Alejandro returned me with his great insight and feedback, introducing me the routes & possibilities that I´d never thought or read that Cusco & Titicaca would offer me. - The guide that they offered me was amazing! Not only knowledgeable, but also very caring and good photographer (for a sole traveler, this is essential)! You can notice that, when they are well paid, they are more willing to perfect their job - Surprisingly, I did my first mountain bike in my life in Ollantaytambo - I did a llama trek solely, basically walked up to a hill in companion with apx 15 llamas, with 2 natives and had a quite picnic - I spent the whole Christmas with Titicaca´s natives and I even explored villages and regions in which seemingly I was the only foreigner during that period The whole wasn´t cheap, but certainly every penny was worthy taking into considerations that all the brand new experience that I had and all the unbelievable stuff I did.

Beautifully planned experience & and 24/7 support
We booked 3 days and 2 nights through the Colca Canyon. From the beginning, Responsible Peru took care of everything and finding out exactly what kind of trip we wanted while keeping the costs down. We had 2 homestays during our trip with one stay at Sibayo (wIth Eusebio and Nieves) and the next in Coporaque (With Amanda). The homestays were truly a great way to experience not only like in the Coca Canyon, but also in Peru in general. Not to mention the food was Authentically GREAT ! First Day: Arequipa to Chivay (as part of a group tour)- Followed by a private transfer to the Homestay in Sibayo. Second Day: Hike in the Canocota Canyon and transfer to Coporaque Third Day: Group tour to the Cruz de la Condor. - Transfer to Puno While this was the outline of the itinerary, there were several experiences within this that made it an experience to remember from the conversations with the families over dinner, to the beautiful views along the hike. It's a great way to contribute to the local communities and at the same time get to see a truly fascinating region. I must admit, even though I'm not a fan of group tours, the company was excellently selected and the tour leaders did a great job. I would definitly recommend incorporating Reponsible Peru during you trip through the country.

Excellent trip, good hotels, well organized and planned. We especially want to recommend our wonderful guide in the Andes, Eloy Chambi Molina. Very knowledgeable, deeply connected to the old culture, he taught us about the plants and flowers along the trails, the customs and practices of the peoples of the Inca empire. He added so much to our experience. A terrific very engaging person. Highly recommended.

Our intent was to do the Inca Trail and then see a bit of Peru. One of our friends recommended Responsible Travel - best decision we made. Alejandro and team made all the bookings: transport, hotels, restaurants, city guides, Inca Trail - we just had to show up. And since we paid upfront no issues at any of the establishments. The Inca Trail was super hard but super fun but Sonia our guide from Wayki was beyond good. In fact all the guides and drivers were really superb. We adjusted some of our arrangements on the go and the team at Responsible Travel were highly responsive and accommodating. We had a WhatsApp group and all our messages were immediately answered. Well run company, with a strong philosophy and lovely, warm people. When we go back to Peru, Responsible Travel will be our only option.

We spent almost 10 days with this…
We spent almost 10 days with this excellent team in Peru and Bolivia. The whole tour was absolutely perfect! Organization, guides, support, hotels selection, local families etc etc. Resp travel agency is definitely one of the best organizations we have travelled with so far. I really wish there is more such professionals in this area in other countries!
