Experience In The Cusco Region

SAM TRAVEL PERU is a 100% locally family owned Travel Company that creates customized uniquely designed adventure treks and tours to untouchable wilderness places, OFF THE BEATEN TRACK, in the Andes Mountains of Peru. By designing our own treks and tours we offer our clients an adventure of a lifetime, a more enjoyable experience, and added value for their money that other companies may not do. Saul Alvarez, SAM TRAVEL PERU’s owner and manager is an experienced guide and knows what people want in a trek or tour.  We focus on providing PERSONALIZED HIGH QUALITY SERVICE with SMALL GROUPS of no larger than 8 persons.

SAM TRAVEL PERU operates all of its own treks and tours with its own highly trained staff and guides.  We never pass you off to a third party provider!  SAM TRAVEL PERU knows how important it is to work with a TRUSTWORTHY AND HONEST tour operator to create your adventure of a lifetime while in Peru. Thus our HIGH QUALITY SERVICE is not about quantity, nor is it about cheap prices and large groups…. We offer a fair-price while providing the best possible service and personalized attention in small groups.
