LlamaExpeditions.com Launches Peru Tours & Machu Picchu Tours That Make a Difference
Travelers who crave an adventure off the beaten path have an exciting new option – with a philanthropic twist.
Llama Expeditions (www.LlamaExpeditions.com) offers guided tours through Peru, from sightseeing to hiking the Inca trail. In addition to taking in the stunning scenery and experiencing incredible adventure, travelers connect to the country and its people through exclusive access and a chance to make a difference.
Founder Diane Valenti said "I decided that I wanted to provide more than the typical sterile tourist vacation packed with the usual attractions. Instead, our tours give you the opportunity to see how Peruvians really live—to talk with them about their dreams and accomplishments and to learn about the challenges they face. We also visit carefully selected nonprofit and grassroots organizations where you'll have the chance to experience delight in the difference your gifts of healthy food, school supplies, clothing, or sunglasses can make in the lives of some of the world's poorest people".
Llama Expeditions BackGround
Juan was an Inca Trail guide living in Cusco, Peru. After a flurry of e-mail messages and phone calls, she returned to Peru for a different kind of visit. What she didn't know is how different it would be and how it would change her life.
Juan took Diane trekking. Their party included his close friend Walberto, Walberto's girlfriend Marion, and Antonio, a local campesino who brought the horse and the mule that carried our heavy items. The first night we didn't make it as far as we had planned because Diane was struggling with the altitude. At nearly 14,000 feet, she could only manage a few steps at a time before she had to stop to catch her breath. So, they ended up camping on the farm where Antonio lived with his family.
Antonio and his family didn't have heat, electricity, or running water in their one-room home. Yet, in spite of their meager circumstances, on that cold and starry night, Antonio and his wife cooked them a delicious dinner.
This incredible act of generosity stunned Diane. She commented..."Here were people who appeared to have so little sharing so much. In fact, this kind of generosity is something I've seen again and again during my travels in Peru. It is a necessity. In a country where much of the population lives in conditions of crushing poverty and where no governmental safety net exists, people rely on the generosity of others. I have also seen the amazing difference that responsible tourism can make. Tourist dollars—flowing in to buy exquisite hand-woven items or to hire porters and cooks to work on the Inca Trail—can improve the living standards in many rural communities. Tourism can create opportunities that never existed".
Diane invites you to join them on a llama expedition that changes lives—your life and the lives of the people you meet.
