MAPI TOUR PERU STAFF

The staff of Mapi Tour Peru is highly trained, with studies in business administration and tourism, qualified to do their work efficiently and help you with any inquiries during your booking process. Our skilled personnel have a passionate interest in their work and are experts at turning the “impossible” into the “possible” to create your dream trip to Peru.

ENGLISH-SPEAKING TOUR GUIDES

Most of our licensed tour guides are highly trained in workshops organized by the company in order to provide quality service to our customers. They know how to deal with difficult situations such as altitude symptoms, accidents, etc. They are prepared to answer your questions during our treks and tours, as well as manage their groups with a high-level of English.

OUR COOKS

Our experienced cooks know how to prepare delicious, healthy meals during our treks and excursions, always maintaining hygienic conditions. They learned how to combine ingredients to make enjoyable, sustaining meals during intensive training workshops. They know that after long-distance treks, their passengers are ravenous, need to eat filling meals and to drink lots of water. That is why they prepare plenty of food, mainly made from local products such as quinoa, potatoes and alpaca meat.

OUR PORTERS

We treat our porters with the respect they deserve for their hard work. Our porters mainly come from impoverished villages and are men looking to make some income for their families. We support all porters who work for us by providing them a good salary and a complete uniform. In addition, we arrange campaigns for social projects in the communities they live. We serve hot chocolate and give gifts to their children at Christmas and important holidays. This initiative is very important for our company because thanks to our porters, we can continue our work as a travel agency. The porters can help their families by working for us, and thus reduce the rural unemployment rate in our country.

ABOUT THE FOUNDER

My name is David Guzman, owner, and founder of Mapi Tour Peru. I started my career as a tour guide in 2005. Since then, I worked for different travel companies, leading small and large groups throughout Peru. I have traveled with people from all over the world, but mainly with Australians, English, Canadians, Dutch and people from the U.S.A. I’ve done trips in almost every corner of Peru, from the coast to the Andes and the Amazon. My job is making each experience as enjoyable as possible.

I’ve had many wonderful times with my passengers, and have excellent memories of trips and unforgettable people. In 2010, I set out to open my own travel company. I remain in contact with many former passengers, and their excellent referrals have helped grow my business substantially. Thanks to all the knowledge I picked up during those years on the road, I can offer my clients exclusive trips, ranging from short trips in the Peruvian Andes to long excursions that show you the best of my amazing country.
