Once he finished university with a degree in tourism, he worked in some travel agencies as an assistant tour guide and then as the primary guide for 7 years. Mister Machulas love of sharing his knowledge about his culture and the region inspired him to open his own travel company. We focus on creating interesting and unique tours with experiences that connect you to the local people and landscape. some of these tours involve visits to community markets, weaving lessons from local people.

What does Machulas mean?

Machulas is a Quechua word that mean old. For example, Machu Picchu means old mountain. In this case, Machulas refers to Ancient Elders. We chose this name because Cusco is a Quechua region, and Quechua is our mother language. We feel it is our responsibility to take care of our culture, and, as a company, we want to demonstrate that Machulas Journey is involved in ancient culture, the Andean community, and sustainable tourism activities around the Cusco region. Preserving and sharing our customs is our goal.
