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.
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 (347) 480-1609 to discover your options.
