Our Wonderful Team in Cusco
South Adventure Peru Tours is a family-owned business, created 15 years ago by Ruben & Tatiana. We decided to make use of our experience and knowledge to open our Tour Agency so that we could provide the highest quality tours around South Peru. In addition, we felt that there was an opportunity for us to help many of the young people in Cusco starting their careers and to provide some of the poorer communities around the Cusco Region with revenue to help sustain their livelihoods.
We specialize in Extended and Family tours around South Peru. We will take you to the most stunning regions such as Ica Region, Paracas Reserve, Nazca City, Colca Canyon, Lares Valley, Ballestas Island, Lake Titicaca and, of course, to many of the stunning historical Incan sites such as the famous Machu Picchu, Choquequirao, Sacred Valley and more. Our team visits and thoroughly investigates all destinations, services and amenities featured on our luxury tours to Peru so we can be sure we are offering the best quality service.
Our mission is to provide outstanding personalized service to all of our clients all of the time. In doing so we pledge to preserve the ECO SYSTEM and ENVIRONMENT around us while giving the local people in each community an opportunity to improve their lifestyle.
We offer custom itineraries and luxury travel, tailoring your adventure to fit your unique travel style, period, budget and interests. From different styles of lodging to your favorite adventure activities, we will create the perfect itinerary for you. By maintaining excellent relationships with top South American guides, hotels and restaurants, we can provide a level of service and experiences that will exceed our client’s expectations.
With headquarters in Cusco (our headquarter), we have partnered with the best tour operators in other parts of Peru, namely Lima, Paracas, Ica, Nazca, Arequipa, Puno and more. You can always be assured that wherever you travel with us, you will receive top-notch service and the best experience possible.

Confirmation of Trip & Deposit Payment: Once you approve the final booking, we will begin confirming the hotels, train tickets, entrance to the sanctuary of Machu Picchu (every booking is subject to space availability even the hotels and train tickets) and then we will be in touch with you to confirm that everything is set up . At this point, we will require a deposit of 35% of the total amount and the rest will be paid when you arrive in Cusco. After we receive your deposit, we will continue with arranging your personalized trip to Peru.

Your arrival marks the start of what will be an unforgettable journey and our chance to prove to you why we earned our glowing reputation as the best tour operator in Peru.

South Adventure Peru tours & Sustainable Tourism (Culturally Responsible): Our founder, Ruben, comes from the Lares Valley and it is his passion to help make the dreams of the Andean people come true. South Adventure Peru Tours donates 10% of the total amount of all tour payments to sustain community projects for the indigenous people of the Lares Valley.
We believe that tourism in South America requires that we treat the local cultures with humility and reverence while we strive to create a two-way dialogue that is enriching for both visitors and locals through sustainable tourism practices.
During this last 9 years, we have provided the people of the Lares Valley with many gifts for Christmas and the new year, as well as school supplies before start the classes in every school. On December 4, 2019, more than 50 school-aged children will get to visit Machu Picchu for the first time ever. Our company is paying for train tickets, entrances, food, transport, guides in Quechua language and accommodations. We work very closely with local communities, businesses and individuals to develop sustainable tourism opportunities that help local economies while minimizing negative environmental and cultural impacts. Part of South Adventure Peru Tours operating philosophy is to respect the communities, their people and their landscape in which we operate and we do this by acting in a manner that is environmentally, socially and economically responsible.
