Edgar Catunta - Manager and Founder

Edgar Catunta Hello everybody my name is Edgar. I started working in tourism because of my love for travel and the desire to showcase my country’s culture and its incredible archaeological sites to others. I’ve been working in the tourism industry for nearly ten years now. While guiding the Salkantay route I had witnessed for many years the downsides to many of the agencies and how they conducted themselves. And it is for that reason that I decided to unveil this company. With an impeccable focus on the passenger and their experience we move forward in a very strong way. We are always leaving our clients thoroughly pleased with the adventures that we provide. It is an exciting business and there is nothing I would rather be doing. Our entire team is dedicated to providing each passenger with the adventure of a lifetime. And the way we ensure that is by constantly providing the resources for them to keep receiving certifications and more knowledge; we acknowledge that if someone is to be great than they must never stop learning. 
Contact us and see what we can do for you. My passion for travel was probably in the blood and it has been suitably indulged over many decades of fine touring, active journeys and family vacations. 
We have tremendous passion for incredible AND unforgettable adventures.
