I studied tourism and after worked as a tour leader travelling along Perú with groups from North America and Europe, where I could show about the culture, traditions, amazing landscapes and gastronomy of my country. I love to welcome tourists all over the world and help them to discover this land and also I am very interested in my guest`s stories learning from them. My purpose is make history entertaining sharing some little anecdotes, and revealing unusual aspects from important cultures and landmarks from this land.

Hicimos el tour con JORGE porque nuestro guía asignado no podía hacerlo. Jorge fue muy amable, profesional, respondió a todas nuestras peticiones y nos dejó un gran sabor de boca.

This tour is fantastic. If you like good food and to immerse yourself in the culture of Peru, Paolo is your guide. His English is excellent and all of the stops were within a rather short walking distance that was packed full with fun and interesting culture / food stories. Make sure you are hungry as there are many opportunities to taste and buy. You simply must put this on your itinerary for Arequipa.
