As a local Peruvian tourism company, we are committed to travelling in a manner that respects local cultures, local communities, and their traditions.
We understand that our activity has an impact on the environment. In this regard, we attempt to minimise our environmental impact on the cities and/or communities we visit. We operate without disrupting the way local economies function.
How we do that?
- In selecting our partners, we tend to choose local operators whenever possible. The goal is to ensure that members of the local community benefit from our activities. For example, in Amantani (Lake Titicaca) instead of contracting with a local agency, we seek to work directly with local community members who live on the island, even if this results in a slightly higher cost.
- We use local public transport whenever possible, as well as local guides.
- We personally monitor our travellers with respect to local customs, and we help you implement best practices to minimise our environmental impact.
To achieve these goals, we believe it is beneficial to travel in small groups. This ensures that you experience local cultures first-hand.
Our partnership with Put Them First
Perú InsideOut believes in responsible travel and that as travelers we have a responsibility to support the local communities and people that kindly welcome us into their lives and homes, and who share with us their culture. For this reason, we support the Arequipa-based children’s educational charity Put Them First. Put Them First is a UK-registered charity (registration number, 1148282) based in Arequipa, Peru. Put Them First promotes the educational advancement and well-being of children living in impoverished areas of the world. They encourage and globally promote volunteers to support the children scholastically, and raise funds to assist with their nutrition. Thank you to all Perú InsideOut clients that have supported this worthy cause. To learn more about the communities and children supported by Put Them First, visit www.putthemfirst.org.
