About us

Some good reasons

Local inside

Buddie host

The way that we develop our tours is not as the common tour operators. “We are not a guide, we are your buddie” is because we want to provide a closer experience.

Technology

We are connect with the next generation of travelers. We provide wifi during our experiences. On this way, we try to keep them connected with the social media and also help them to find all the information they may need.

We are a local business founded by two friends with experience leading tours around Peru and South America.

Our passion for traveling and exploring gave us the chance to visit other continents opening our minds and giving us a different view of tourism around the world.

Travel Buddies was a result of us being in constant contact with travelers from different parts of the world and discovering their need for new experiences that could make them get in touch with the local culture and not only with the touristy places, a touch that only a local buddy or friend can give you.

We have the commitment of delivering an experience full of stories and anecdotes. Travel Buddies wants you to feel part of a family that will take care of your safety and is always looking out for you.

As a business we recognize your need for good organization and flexibility. We have a good mix of field experience and backstage knowledge.

Travel Buddies Peru guide

Cesar Alfredo Vasquez – Co Founder

I like to listen and share stories. Along my life I traveled a lot and I would like to be as great a host as the ones I had when I was traveling out my country.

Some words about me

My first trip was when I was only 14 years old. My cousin asked me join him on a trek to the “Sierra de Lima”, and after that trio I never imagined that my life was going to be dedicated to traveling. I have had the good fortune to travel a lot throughout my dear Peru and other countries. I work in tourism since I am 21 years old and I never thought that one of my passions would become my profession.

Education

I studied at San Martin University and I got the degree in Tourism Business Management.

Past experiences

I got involved in tourism when I was 21 years old,  I went to Puerto Maldonado to work as a local guide.  Since then I always liked to give a different experience to our visitors. After my experience at the Peruvian jungle I started working for a worldwide tour operator leading tours around Peru and South America, after a few years with them they gave me the chance to travel other countries promoting Peru and my culture.

Pablo Ureta – Co Founder

I am passionate about traveling and exploring. My goal in each of my tours is to make every single traveler fall in love with my country and my culture as much as I do.

Some words about me

I discovered my passion for traveling when I was 15 years old, but I started making a living from it when I was 26. Since then I started an endless adventure. I enjoy very much what I do and I love traveling because it makes me meet a lot of different people and shows me different ways to see life.

Education

I studied at Piura University in Lima Campus. I am a Business Administration graduate.

Past experiences

I worked in many places and companies that operated in lots of different countries. I got field experience leading groups around Peru and South America. One of the places I worked for gave me the chance to grow and travel the world facilitating training programs and learning about tourism operations. I am very grateful for all the experience and knowledge I got from the people and companies I worked for, but now it’s time to start my own story.
