JUAN FÉLIX APAZA YUCRA
Hi guys, my name is Juan Felix and it is a pleasure to share my story with you. I was born on May 23rd, 1983 and the languages I speak are English, Spanish, and Quechua. The biggest motivation I have in life are my parents, thanks to them, I became the person and the professional I am. In my spare time, I like to read books and watch historical documentaries about Peru.
Undoubtedly, I made the best choice in studying tourism guiding because I am passionate about sharing our customs and cultures with others. One of the main objectives of this wonderful profession is that they can get to know wonderful landscapes and be enriched by history. Therefore, guiding for me is the art of directing and entertaining the traveler to have a memorable experience.
In the 9 years that I have been practicing this incredible profession, I was able to discover different landscapes, routes, trails and learn the amazing history of our ancestors. I had the opportunity to do the Salkantay Trek, the Inca Trail, Lares, and Sacred Valley. But leaving Cusco for a while, the place that has impacted me the most was Huaraz, at over 6,000 meters above sea level. You have to go there!
I wish with all my heart that Salkantay Trekking continues to grow with the best effort and dedication that each of the collaborators put day by day to provide the best memories of your visit to Cusco, Peru.

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!
