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.
“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.”

“Erick is an unbelievable guide. He has the highest level of professionalism one could ask for on a guided trip. He ensured he learned everyone's name. He took the time to constantly explain cultural knowledge. He related to all clients at all times. Erick is top notch across the board. ”

“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!”
