SAM Travel Peru: Cusco’s Leading Local Tour Operator
for Adventurers and Trek Lovers

Peru is quickly becoming popular among backpackers as one of the best locations to trek in the world. There’s something for everybody here, from diverse and unique natural beauty to mysterious archaeological sites.

SAM Travel Peru, a local tour operator in Cusco that offers amazing Peru treks, provides you with the day trips, tours and trek packages you want. We’re a 100% Peruvian-owned tour operator that offers fantastic experiences to untouched and unknown wilderness areas in the country. We deliver only the best to our adventure-loving clients while providing families within the Cusco region with employment and educational opportunities through our activities and business ventures.

What Makes Us the Travel Agency of Choice in Cusco?

We’re a fully licensed Inca Trail operator. Not many operators have this kind of license, which is why they’re unable to do direct Inca Trail trekking tours.

Another thing that gives us an edge over other Peruvian tour operators is that we take ownership of all aspects of our treks and tours. We don’t farm you out to third parties. Your adventure starts and ends with us.

What are you waiting for? Join us to experience a trek or a tour that you’ll remember for life. Call +51 992 126 224 to discover your options.

Clients Blogs ABOUT OUR TREKS

SAM Travel has initiated a new blog where our past passengers for our tours and treks can share their experiences, pictures, and videos of their real life experiences on their tours and treks . There are link to their own personal blogs also. It is a way that they can share their life changing travel experiences while in Peru and communicate with others.

SAM TRAVEL REALLY CARES ABOUT THEIR CLIENTS , TEAM, LOCAL COMMUNITIES & PLANET

Tree Planting Project

SAM Travel Peru is a socially responsible tour operator concerned about the environment. Our Plant A Tree campaign creates awareness to local communities and the citizens of the city of Cusco that deforestation issue in the Andes Mountains is a serious one. As each year, many mountain slopes are void of trees and that causes a huge decline in the wildlife.

Dreams Come True For Student

December of 2017, SAM Travel Peru fulfilled the dreams of 36 children and their parents from the indigenous community of Pampamarca way up in the Andean mountains in the south of Cusco. They got to tour Cusco City, Sacred Valley and the Citadel of Machu Picchu all paid for by SAM Travel Peru. These are children do not have the resources nor ability for many reasons to be able to experience the historical sites of their Inca heritage. Sam Travel Peru wants to give them a once in a lifetime experience up close and in person of their heritage and restore their pride in their culture, history and Inca heritage.

Our Christmas Party In The Andes

We kick off our annual Christmas social project focused on helping communities surrounding the imperial city of Cusco and the Sacred Valley. We journeyed towards the community of Pacchanta, located within the district of Ocongate (home to Ausangate Mountain). This quaint and isolated community is home to about 400 people or so. SAM Travel Peru was able to complete this project successfully with the help of its dedicated team members!

Professional and attentive service with incredible scenery Sam Travel were fantastic to work with and very responsive on email especially as plans were ever changing with covid. We are two couples who did the 4D/3N Lares trek to Machu Picchu including Lares Hot springs. Our guide Fabian was so attentive and helpful during our trek with perfect English and great sense of humor. His passion for Machu Picchu was obvious and made the entire experience an unforgettable one. Our chefs Nadio and Julio, and horsemen Roberto and Masalino were so professional and wonderful at what they do. The food was incredible and they were so attentive and efficient. Would definitely recommend this trek to anyone wanting an alternative experience to the more popular Inca and Salkantay treks. The scenery was breathtaking (as was the altitude). Thank you again to Fabian and the team.…

Sacred Valley, Inca Trail, and Macchu Picchu I had two different tours through Sam Travel Peru and both were wonderful experiences. Adner and Jahdiel (JD) we’re great guides through several sites in the Sacred Valley. Danny led my short Inca trail tour and Macchu Picchu visit. The guides were all very knowledgeable and so accommodating. Adner took us to a lace for authentic textiles after we expressed an interest in that. Danny was a great leader through a very long hike. He constantly encouraged us to take our time, stop for breaks and take lots of pictures. If I return to Peru I will definitely book all my tours with Sam Peru Travel.…
