Responsible tourism: Machu Picchu by train

Travellers are accompanied by one of our experienced local guides who is knowledgeable of local culture, history, flora and fauna of the Machu Picchu Sanctuary. By working with local guides we provide economic benefits directly to local people and operators.

On this tour we visit two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the city of Cuzco and the historic sanctuary of Machu Picchu.

In Cuzco, we support Inti Runakunaq Wasin (IRW), Quechua for “House of the People of the Sun”, a non-profit organisation that acts as a haven for children and adolescents who live in extreme poverty on the streets. IRW is run by a staff of professional social workers that provide support programs for women, families, people with special needs and victims of family violence. Children are given the opportunity to voluntarily drop-in and participate in a variety of classes and workshops that teach them valuable skills including carpentry, handicrafts, shoe repair, cooking, music and English.

We also support the work of the Inka Porter Project (IPP), a non-profit organisation which works to improve the working and living conditions of Porters in Peru. Together with IPP we have provided four porter communities with first-aid and job training workshops and ensure fair working conditions to all of our porters.
