Erick Farfan Zamalloa
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.
“Our trip leader Erick (who lives in Cusco himself) was amazing, knowledgable, attentive & considerate and went out of his way to ensure everybody's safety and enjoyment at all times. He listened to the requests of the group and did his utmost to fulfil them. He is definitely a great representative for Active and a valuable asset.”Catriona Hellicar (Tea Gardens, New South Wales, Australia) July, 2014
“Erick was unbelievable. Fantastically organised, and always made sure everything flowed. Worked unbelievably hard and always tried to accommodate requests (like changing the restaurant in Cusco one evening). Very lucky to have him as our guide.”Tracey Brick (Auckland, New Zealand) July, 2014
