- Why Inkasaire Journeys?
The idea for Inkasaire Journeys started in 2010. At this time the founders of Inkasaire began working in the hospitality and tourism industry in Cusco, Peru.
They chose this career to help them share their knowledge and love for the culture and natural beauty of Cusco and Peru, with all the tourists and travelers he encountered on their visits to the Land of the Incas. While working as a tour guide, they used to take travelers to out-of-the-way places not often visited by people on holiday in Peru. He took them to local villages, invited them to eat the traditional food of the Andean people, had them observe the daily life of rural families and even gave them the unique opportunity culturally immerse with traditional families.
The response of those very first travelers provided the impetus for imagining a new way of travel and cultural interaction that has shape the character of Inkasaire Journeys. They would talk about realizing how amazing and surprising the many-layered culture, people and places of Peru were. They had come from faraway lands to see something unique and different and discovered an experience that was like living in a richly fascinating new world.
This led to the magical moment, when it was decided to share our services, traditions and culture to all travelers from around the world to witness and participate in Peruvian culture.
Inkasaire Journeys is based in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. This is located in the traditional rural area named Huycho, part of the Province of Urubamba.
Locals from this region were trained to receive foreign travelers and be a part of their journeys throughout Cusco. After some rewarding first experiences, it was realized that our guest-travelers enjoyed the specially designed services provided by local staff. So, we extended our business through not only offering unique traditional accommodation, but also providing a wide range of services with local transportations, guided tours, assistance with flights, trains, tourist tickets, etc. All of these operations would be managed by friendly, experienced local staff.
In order to better understand how to provide exceptional services to our travelers, two of our managers have degrees in International Tourism and Hospitality Management and work experiences in Australia, USA, Japan and Peru. Together with a group of traditional families eager to share and explain the customs, history, and culture of our Inca ancestors we invite our visitors to a pleasant and rewarding stay in our traditional homes. Empowered with a wide understanding and knowledge to enhance the cultural experience of each traveler, we feel we can make each of our guests feel like a VIP, Very Inka Person from the first moment you contact to us till a “See you again soon” at the airport.
