Erick Farfan Zamalloa

Peru Guide

Erick was born in Cuzco, where he has spent his entire life, so he's certainly an expert! As a child he always admired his own Peruvian customs and culture and was fascinated with exploring each corner of his country. He has now worked in the Peruvian Tourism industry for over twelve years and particularly loves to trek and go on expeditions. All in all he loves his job! 

Erick is married to his lovely wife Carmen and has two wonderful (and slightly naughty, so he tells us) children, Marcela and Sebastian.

“Erick was awesome. He knew all about the areas we were at. He did everything to make sure we were comfortable and safe. He gave us all kinds of information to make the best of our free time also. I cant say enough good things about him.”

- Will Tadich (Orlando, Florida, United States), Iguana September 2017

“Erick was the BEST! He was kind, caring, patient, funny, knowledgeable, and always so well prepared. I thought I would keep my birthday which landed during the trek under the radar, but the celebration that was put together by Erick and the support team was very, very special - thank you... I had tears in my eyes saying good-bye to Erick. He's a keeper Active!”

    Excellent way to see New Zealand

    My husband and I went on the Kauri trip in November 2017. This trip had been on our bucket list for a while and we decided to go with Active Adventures as they were offering the type of travel and activities we wanted to do in New Zealand. Our two awesome guides, Andy (encyclopedia of knowledge) and Jo (excellent cook) made us feel at home and have shown us the beautiful country of NZ while ensuring everyone had fun. We had an amazing time on the North Island and I highly recommend this trip if you enjoy outdoor activities.

    Truely an Amazing Vacation

    We really enjoyed this beautiful land. Cynthia and Paula (local guide) did an outstanding job of organizing and taking care of our group. They really enjoyed explaining the geology as well as the flora and fauna we were looking at. There was always time for pictures or views as we moved along this picture perfect land.

    The Most Beautiful Place in the World

    Thank you to Active Adventures for a most spectacular trip. I traveled with my daughter, to celebrate her college graduation, and my brother. The Kiwi people are the friendliest people on the planet. Our guides were extremely helpful, cooked awesome meals, and taught us so much about New Zealand. They took care of everything. All we had to do was sit back and enjoy the ride. The locations for the lodging were probably the best views in all the country. We stayed right in the center of Queenstown, next to a remote area of a lake with views of Mt. Cook, in a small towns next to the ocean. They were all very clean and neat, always with a pot of tea ready, and cookies for a snack. There was always an excess of food. No one ever went hungry. In fact, I don't think I ever ate so much on holiday. The activities were fun and varied, relaxing at times, strenuous on occasion but with awesome views as payback. I am recommending this trip to all my friends, and already planning the next one.

    Amazing Trip

    The Peru Jaguar trip we took in May, was the most exciting and adventurous trip we have ever made in our lives! At 70, I was skeptical as to whether I could complete the Inca Trail or not. With Johan's help and support, I not only accomplished my goal, but was extremely satisfied with our total active adventure trip. It seemed as if every time I turned my head, there was another exhilarating scene to photograph. The rest of the trip included the amazon rainforest, and spending the night with a local family on Lake Titicaca which was great. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone wishing to explore the world's unknown places that only a few select get to experience. Our guide Erick Farfan was an exceptional young man who went out of his way not just for us, but the entire group. I've never had someone so attentive to every detail to make all of us happy. His choice of restaurants allowed all of us to experience the local foods and were all very tasty. Kudos to Erick, Johan and the rest of the crew for making my experience once in a lifetime which I will never stop talking about.
