ANGEL JORGE MEZA MAMANI
Hello friends, my name is Angel, and I am also part of the great family of Salkantay Trekking. I was born on May 16th, and the biggest motivation I have in life is my family. When I am not hiking, I like to spend time at home, reading a book or listening to music. I am fluent in English and Spanish.
I chose to be a tour guide because I like to share the incredible history of our ancestors with people from different parts of the world and learn a little of theirs. Guiding is leading a group and always going forward. It is to gain people's trust in order to have an unforgettable journey.
In the 18 years that I have been practicing this fascinating profession, I had an emergency on the road and I still remember it. One day I was hiking with a group, everything was going well until suddenly there was a rock slide. I had to keep calm so that my passengers would be calm too, but suddenly I realized that there was a group of people who needed help. I helped them as much as I could, including my colleague, until rescuers arrived and were able to take them to a health facility. This was a real emergency that I keep very much in mind.
On the other hand, I have known several places and I consider that where I gained the most experience was: Salkantay, Inca Trail, and Choquequirao. But the place that impacted me the most was Waqrapukara.
I have been working in Salkantay Trekking for approximately 4 years and I have seen the growth that we are achieving. I hope we continue like this, giving great travel experiences with the support of highly qualified professionals and the best camping infrastructure. See you soon!

Amazing all round
They are very professional and friendly. The tour guides and food services are amazing. The vans were brand new and very comfortable. I wouldn’t use any other tour service and you shouldn’t either!! We did the short Inca trail trek as well as rainbow mountain with them.
5D/4N Salkantay Trek
Myself and my partner did the 5D/4N salkantay trek in December 2021 with Alex and Fredy as our guides and it was one of the best experiences we have done. The food and the accommodation were fab and whilst the trek was challenging at times it was super fun and very rewarding.
We did the half day city tour and the one day Machu Picchu tour and it was amazing. Our guides, Fredy Apaza and Ricardo were not only friendly and warm people, but EXTREMELY knowledgeable. They provided us with so much information not only about the sites but about the ancient and modern culture. Their peruvian pride really was special. They offered all help from advice with our stay in the city to taking all of our pictures. They gave us the most incredible experience. I would 100% recommend this tour to anyone, especially with our guides.
Amoroso was a fantastic guide. Would recommend to anyone. He was a very knowledgeable about the history of his ancestral land and went of his way to make sure our experience was as nice as possible.
Seeing a new side of life made the whole trip that much more personal. Aside from Franz and Carlos guiding and teaching us about the Andean life, they had such high spirits that kept us going! I would ask for them specifically in my next trip!
Best experience EVER!
My friend and I did the Humantay Lake and Salkantay Pass Trek with the most awesome guide, Jorge! The views were amazing, the service was great! The meals included were delicious and they even give you snack packs for your day hikes. What made the experience great was Jorge. He was super friendly, kind, respectful and the best cheerleader. The treks are not a walk in the park, but Jorge shared interesting facts and the history of the places along the way making everything enjoyable. And whenever he noticed I was tired, he would cheer me on. Book this trip! You will not regret it. Muchas gracias Jorge!!!
Best 5 days ever
The Salkantay Classic 5 day was the most incredible experience of my life. Our guide Fredy Apaza Huarhua was absolutely outstanding. He was both knowledgeable and good-humored. He made sure everyone had a great time and was hugely supportive during tough times. I would 100% suggest this trek to anyone in great physical condition and a taste for adventure!
