At Valencia Travel Cusco, we are committed to taking care of the environment, creating sustainable travel, and producing a highly-robust suite of tours that are COVID-safe while supporting local employment and economic development.

Travelling with less environmental impact is important, especially when it comes to the type of regional travel seen not only in the hinterlands of Peru, but in many countries around the globe where environmental protection is a must, such as Argentina’s Patagonian region, Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, and Thailand’s island of Maya Bay. At Valencia Travel Cusco, we have always championed environmental consciousness when it comes to our tours, and this has included implementing various education programs throughout our tour supply chain to ensure that each and every one of us—including our customers—are able to travel with a positive impact that will help preserve our planet for the years to come.

We do this by educating our staff, tour guides, and suppliers in both theory and practice about recycling, optimal waste management, composting, and the sourcing of recyclable goods. By supporting businesses that also believe in these practices, such as the use of recyclable packaging, we can help them to grow, achieve economies of scale, employ more staff, and make an even bigger impact when it comes to protecting Mother Nature as their environmentally-friendly products become the first choice of businesses throughout Peru.

In addition to supporting sustainable tourism in Peru, we also educate and train those in our tourism supply chain about the very best safety practices when it comes to cleanliness, hygiene, and providing a COVID-safe experience for our customers. This allows all of us to travel with greater confidence and peace of mind, especially in light of the pandemic and just how much hygiene has come to the forefront of everybody’s mind.

Education is the most powerful tool we have, and we are blessed to be in a position where we can impart this knowledge on the wider communities in which we travel who may not have had the same educational opportunities as we have. Together, the people of Peru continue to grow strong, we continue to create the safest of environments for our customers, and when it comes to a sector as important to our country as tourism, we are united as one in delivering a seamless, timeless experience for our customers who join us from all over the world on tour.

Our commitment to eco-friendly tourism, environmentally-conscious travel, COVID-safe practices, and the educational empowerment of our people, would not be possible without the love and support we have continued to receive over the years from you—our customers.

We look forward to welcoming you back in 2022 for more good times and great adventures.
