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.

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 and communicate with others their life changing travel experiences while in Peru. We welcome all of our potential passengers to explore our tour and trekking blog for themselves. We also have a community Facebook page where you can explore and make contact with our SAM Travel Community.


tree planting project

SAM Travel Peru as a travel agency is concerned about our environment and believes it is our social responsibility to preserve our planet.

SAM Travel as a joint effort between the Kiswarani Indigenous Community and themselves planted 10,000 trees on the slopes of the Lares Valley. 70 people in 1 day with lots of hard worked managed to cover the slopes of the surrounding mountains with 10,000 Queuna trees.

dreams come true for student

December of 2017, SAM Travel Peru once again 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. 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.

our christmas party in the andes

Each year, SAM Travel journeys to an indigenous community to treat them with a special Christmas party with Santa Clause arriving at their school. These children due to lack of resources may not even get to have Christmas or get a present. This year, the staff went to the Pacchanta indigenous community school at the base of the impressive beauty of the Ausangate Mountain Range glaciers behind us.
