I felt like a friend of the family, rather than part of a tourist group. We ate an amazing Peruvian lunch, talked with some families, and gained an appreciation of the difficulty of their lives in that area. The kids are amazing and resilient. By far, this afternoon was my absolute favorite.
My husband and I did the full day human settlement tour a few weeks ago while waiting for an evening flight. Loved this tour! Very humbling and yet inspirational to see what is being done to help the silent majority in the shanty town. Knowing your money is going to help at the source is another reason to do the tour.
Started off at the largest cemetery in S. America, which was really neat considering just how vast the size is. Then went to a village and got to interact with various locals to hear their life stories and see how they live their day-to-day lives. It really puts things in perspective when you see how some people have so little but still have a smile on their face. I highly recommend!
This was such an excellent tour and none like any other I’ve been on before. It was truly a moving experience. I learned so much about the resiliency, resourcefulness and goodness of people from the families we met on the tour. There was such an incredible sense of community and feeling of hope that you could feel very strongly.
This tour was my favorite tour in Peru and far exceeded expectations. I enjoyed meeting with the locals and glimpsing into their lives. I was touched by the kindness of all of the people we visited. These people have almost nothing, yet they invited me into their homes and hugged me and fed me. This tour was emotional for me and reminded me that I have much to be thankful for.
“Un día increíble en los “pueblos jóvenes” de lima. Nunca voy a olvidarlo y espero que mucha gente pueda experienciar lo mismo. Although I already knew the “real” Lima, this experience was great. The trip touched me deep inside and I hope Nathalie and Carlos will have loads of opportunities to show their Lima and go on with their fabulous idea to combine traveling with responsibility! Awesome!”
