Excellent Service

Here at Llama Path, we are committed to providing excellent service to all of our guests, on all of our tours and treks. We have 15 years of experience operating in Cusco, and more recently all over Peru.

We are here to attend to any questions, issues or concerns that you may have, leading up to and during your trip. Your experience is the most important thing for us, and we will do everything we can to provide you with an excellent service and experience.


Porter Welfare

Jose’s career in tourism began as a porter on the Inca Trail, where he learnt about operating treks, and began to develop ideas for his own agency. Porter walfare is something Jose has always felt strongly about, so he took the opportunity to make a difference when he started Llama Path. Right from the start of our very first treks in 2003, we have been committed to ensuring our porters are the best treated on the Inca Trail. This includes providing uniforms, good quality equipment, a fair and legal wage, and medical insurance to cover any injuries. We believe that we helped to set an example for other agencies, and overall porter welfare on the Inca Trail has greatly improved since we implemented our unique policies.


A Leader in Ethical & Sustainable Tourism

Llamapath has 15 years of experience, during which we have overcome a variety of challenges, especially related to the increased popularity of Peru, and especially the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu. We are committed to using eco-friendly products, and always sourcing our produce from local providers, in order to minimalise the footprint we leave behind.


We have worked with numerous guides, porters and chefs, each of whom have been trained in our ethical and sustainable tourism policies. Some of these staff have even gone on to start their own tour companies and agencies, putting these policies into effect, and continuing to practise the type of tourism that Llamapath is so proud of.


We thank you for choosing to travel with us and continuing to support the community and people of Cusco, and its surrounding areas.
