Discover, Explore & Enjoy Peru

 

Vicuña Adventures is the leading operator for tours and treks to Machu Picchu, Cusco and the Sacred Valley. Our team is 100% local, all growing up in the rural villages around the city of Cusco surrounded by the magnificent legacy of the Inca Empire. So when you join a tour with us, you are guaranteed to be in the safe and knowledgeable hands of one of our friendly, expert local guides.

While we focus on the care and quality of our tours for all of our customers, our commitment to our own community is also unparalleled. We believe we are all here to make the world a better place, starting at home, and so supporting our local community is our top priority. For all of our tours we ensure we visit places where we can support local people and businesses, from using first class local chefs, to visiting local artisans still working the ancient traditions of the area.

We are also dedicated to helping the Planet and the environment for generations to come and so we operate a "leave no footprints" policy on all our tours, providing extra support to help clean the trails of every trek.

We are excited to show you our homeland and hope you fall in love with Peru.

Tour of Sacred Valley and Incan Ruins

This past May I went to South America for the first time, specifically to Peru. A portion of the trip was in the Sacred Valley; this included several small towns near Cusco, as well as Machu Picchu. Vicuna Adventures organized our tour. Sabi, the owner of Vicuna and our guide, was amazing. He crafted a full itinerary for us, and took us to some sites that a lot of other tour companies actually skip (like the Salt Mines). He was extremely knowledgeable about the Incan culture, and was able to share this knowledge with us at each site we both passed and stopped at. He handled getting all of the tickets and permits in advance. Sabi was also very polite and courteous, offering excellent customer service. And he takes great pictures, and was willing to do so at any point during the trip (he knew where to go for the best views at Machu Picchu). I would highly recommend using Vicuna Adventures for any tour you decide to take in Peru.

Could not have asked for a better guide!

My friend and I did the Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu with Sabi Silva, and highly recommend him as a guide. Sabi is extremely knowledgeable about the local area. We learned about local culture, history, plants, and food, and did our best to learn some Quechua words. 

Sabi's attitude was relaxed, friendly, and easy-going. He let us set the pace of the trek and answered all of our questions about the area. We had an amazing experience, and I would recommend his company to any of my friends or family who are traveling to Cusco to trek.

Amazing, friendly and informative!

My friend and I did the five day Lares trek with Sabi as a guide and I can honestly say that it was one of the most amazing times of my life. Sabi had so many great stories and also amazing knowledge about local flora and fauna. Our equipment was top notch, the food was great and the whole experience was really authentic. We stayed in local areas and Sabi even fought off an angry alpaca for us! I highly recommend these guys! They are professionals.

- Meet Your Guide -

 

My name is Sabino Silva Bolivar. Born in Mara - Cotabambas - Apurimaq, I grew up in a very humble family of 11 siblings in a very small town of only 1,200 people. To reach the nearest city we would have to walk approximately 5 days if we wanted to buy something, like sugar or salt only once a year. We lived the same way our Inca ancestors did. We had no electricity, no internet, we had to walk two hours to go to school each way but we were happy. Our parents gave us good education, the place where we lived was a nice place and we were never hungry. We kept on going forward and kept on studying and for the improvement of our family I went to the University. At first it was very difficult because I had no one that could cook like my mom, but the real challenge was studying. I chose the History of Peru because to me it was very important to take to heart the history of my country. Since I was 8 I loved the story of my people and how people suffer day and night to provide education for their children.

During my studies at the University, I worked as a tour guide on the Inca trail and I was also a chef while I studied to become a Peruvian history professor. Now I share my life and the history of South America with my clients from all over the world, and I learned from them to be humble and worldly, like in a movie. I can speak 6 languages, Quechua, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French and English, and I’ve worked with many travel agencies.

Also, my dream was to have a travel agency and help people in need like kids who have no family and kids who want to go to school, kids who have no medicine when they are sick and many other things. This is another dream come true with Vicuña Adventures Peru because a Vicuña is an animal that was never tamed and never will; it lives in the mountains over 5,000 ft high and is smart and strong like me. That’s why it never gives up, life is short and nothing is easy.
