Alfredo was born in the heart of the Andes, not far from Cuzco and Machu Picchu. He always wanted to be a guide and to share his country’s history and culture so he studied tourism and graduated from university with his official guide license. He guides for prestigious agencies including REI Adventures, National Geographic, Celebrity and Princess Cruise Lines, Lima Tours, as well as several European companies, and has been encouraged by his clients to form his own agency providing quality tours and adventures.
Why Travel with PAD
Why Travel with PAD
When you take a trip with PAD (Peru Andes Discovery), you immerse yourself in an outdoor adventure filled with stunning contrasts: spontaneous and purposeful, intimate and communal, raw and rich, mystical and spiritual. Led by handpicked, local travel guides, you join a community of like-minded explorers who believe in the adventurous streak within us all. Jump in headfirst and be prepared to feel tired, a little dirty and very much alive. With PAD you don’t just travel, you travel deeply.
The incredible people and nature of Peru are the twin pillars of our business. Without them we’d be nothing. And yet we exist in a world where modernity and development threaten vulnerable ecosystems and disrupt traditional cultures.
We believe that responsible travel is good for business, but we also believe that it’s just the right thing to do. We are dedicated to:
Properly Managed Tourism – Creating value in cultural heritage and the environment. It creates awareness and incentives to protect the traditions and way of life that make this part of the world so fascinating and unique.
Community Involvement – Conservation is a key function of what we do and how our business works. While others pay lip service to sustainable travel, we do it transparently and wholeheartedly.
Our philosophy is a simple one: to provide extraordinary adventures for small groups of travellers with a keen focus on responsible tourism and to provide support to local communities.
PAD is more than just a travel company, it is a network of professionals hailing from a variety of backgrounds and places, all bound by a love of travel, appreciation of different cultures and dedication to crafting an authentic travel experience.
