Not absolutely sure about that

Read the operator's response here:
Many thanks for the 5* review, I’m happy to hear you enjoyed your trip to Peru with us! I just wanted to take the opportunity to reassure you that even it if was not obvious during your trip, local people did benefit from your visit, and social and environmental initiatives were supported. A couple of examples – the local operator you travelled with in Arequipa and Colca organise regular campaigns taking doctors and dentists out to remote communities, the organic farm you visited in the Sacred Valley is part of a project supporting organic and traditional farming methods which, in addition to environmental benefits, provides employment and training opportunities for local people, and the Amazon lodge you stayed at runs conservation projects for several species, including endangered turtles. All of this is possible because of income from tour operations! You also stayed in small locally owned and run hotels in Cusco, Ollantaytambo and Puno, supporting responsible small businesses. I hope this clears up any doubts about the positive impact of your trip to Peru.
Thanks again and we hope to hear from you in the future when you are ready for your next South America Adventure!
With best wishes
