Responsible Tourism Policy
At Amazing Peru, we firmly believe that responsible
tourism is the only way one can guarantee the sustainable
development of travel for present and future generations.
As a result of this belief, ever since we started we have
involved the local communities and worked with them as suppliers
of goods and services, helping them by contributing with medicines,
school materials and health issues. Tied in with this, was
our commitment to the environment trying to minimize our footprints
and respecting the traditional way of life of the peoples
through whose territories we passed.
We have also managed to educate and influence
our field staff and their communities to improve their quality
of life by enhancing their interaction with their own environment.
Our work in this area has also caused other operators to improve
their environmental performance since it implied improving
their standards to be able to compete in this industry.
