    Description

    Hi, I'm David
    originally from the city of Quillabamba, located in the jungle of Cusco, in this city many years ago we started a tourism project together with a cooperative organization, the objective was to involve small scale coffee, cocoa and tea farmers within the tourism activity, we provided to them some loans, training and assistance. this farmer are organic and fair trade certified.

    Currently, as a local travel operator, we continue to promote and work with families in the spirit of continuing to supporting them. As a local company we also offer travel services in southern part of Peru and mainly in the area of Cusco and Machu Picchu. Our speciality is to visit small scale farmers, with whom, we developed coffee and cocoa experiences at their own farms, which allows us to show a little of our culture from the perspective of our diverse agriculture.

    At home you can share the common areas with us, Ana, who is my partner and supports us in accounting, and my person, i am in charge of the business. Sometimes there are extra staffs, who helps us with the operative part, this may be depending on the tourism season.

    2022: now, as a consequence of the pandemic, Ana had to move to another town to work, the only person who is working from home is me (we have an office in the apartment). now the high season for tourism is starting we plan to work also with some locals so maybe at the time you decide to join us, there will be helping us another person.

    What else ...

    Cusco, it is not a big city, so from the house to the main square, it could take you about 25 min. by public transportation. if you plan to walk, this could take you about 1hour.

    from home you can walk about 2 blocks to take a public transportation, another option walk about 4 blocks (to the main square of the district) there you can have more chances, if you walk one block more, to the Cultura Av. plenty of option, most of the companies are passing this avenue. also if you plan to move by public transportation at night, you can have more chances of finding transportation on this avenue. most of the time until 11 pm

    If you need a taxi, from the main square to the house will cost you between 7 to 10 soles, it will depend on the hour also


    Cusco as a city and region is a tourist destination so finding new friends will not be a problem for you. In your free time, you can visit archeological sites, hike some mountains and also visit some ancient towns like Ollantaytambo.

    also because we are located in a very traditional district you can visit other no touristic places like the main square of San Jeronimo. on the weekend we can organize for sure one visit to not a touristic place
