Our story started 9 years ago in a bar in Lima. We were having a chat with a very good friend about our passion for travelling to Peru and besides the thousands of travel agencies we identified the opportunity to create something completely new, fresh, authentic and innovative. After a couple of beers and a long conversation we decided to make this dream come true, we quit our jobs and founded Peruvian Soul with the idea to inspire travelers from all around the world to discover and explore the soul of the country.
We want to inspire our travelers to experience the country as a local and to connect with our people, our culture and our country.
