Hello! My name is Beatriz and I am a tourist guide in my city Arequipa - Peru :) I have worked in Free Tours for 5 years in my city and that is where I discovered how exciting it is to show my city to others. As part of my professional development I have also worked in travel agencies but I consider that in the Free Tour I have learned a lot from what I know. For years working on the Free Tour I learned to interact with tourists, speak better and have leadership in groups, in addition to the cultural exchange that occurs during the guided, for that reason I feel especially grateful to have found this excellent way of working. Just as I felt that this type of service gave me the opportunity to grow not only as a professional but as a person I decided to help newly graduated guides to work in tourism through the free tour that's why I have created this work team FREE TOUR AREQUIPA BY FOOT where you will find local guides newly graduated willing to show you the best of our city. In the same way I have a husband and a baby which motivates me to continue working in tourism because I want to travel to other countries with them.

This tour with Beatriz was absolutely great! We’ve spent almost 4 hours together around Arequipa, getting really interesting informations about the city, the culture, the monuments and trying a lot of different food at San Camilo’s market. We really REALLY recommend it to start a few days stay in Arequipa! Plus Beatriz has a perfect English! Don’t hesitate, book this tour with Beatriz, you won’t regret it!!!! Muchas gracias again to our Guru, que le vaya bien!!!

Es una guía magnífica. Nos llevó al mercado a probar comida local, y recorrimos los lugares bellos de la ciudad. Además aprendimos mucho y se hizo muy ameno e interesante.
