About Us – Vamos Machu Picchu
Why Vamos Machu Picchu and not just Peru treks? The word action requires physical movement, energy and accomplishes a purpose. Vamos Machu Picchu provides superior, quality and authentic treks and tours to Machu Picchu and Choquequirao. We want you to connect with the treks and the beautiful scenery, which is why our team consists of only locals who have grown up on the land.
One of our primary goals is to support the local community. We make sure to provide fair wages for all of our team and especially our porters and horsemen.
Vamos Machu Picchu was started in 2015 by Edwin, who was born in a small community outside of Machu Picchu and has trekked this area all of his life. He has guided hundreds of groups on the Inca Trail, Ancascocha, Salkantay, Lares and the Choquequirao treks, both as a porter and a tour guide. He first visited Machu Picchu when he was 12 years old and was stunned by the history and architecture and decided to study to be a guide so he could share his culture and this beautiful landscape with others.
